Brown Eyed Girl | Tacoma Senior Portrait Photographer

She may be small, but she knows how to tackle. I was surprised to learn that Stadium High School has a girls football team and they don't play with powder puffs.
I'm rapidly nearing the "hill" and staying in touch with today's youth helps me cope. And senior portraits are always a favorite of mine. Boys and girls are so eager to have their portraits taken, even if it means posing for the camera in public. Tacoma has a lot of great textures and backdrops for shooting.


Baby C and Family

Baby C is due any day now, but before her grand entrance, mom, dad and big sister wanted a few photos to remember these days by.


Nate | Fife Senior Portrait Photographer

Another fun day of photographing class of 2010 senior pictures! It was one of those gorgeous days we had last week and this time I got to hang out with Nate and his guitar. We started photos out in a junk heap on hwy 99, then worked our way down to Tacoma. Not in the most likely spots for senior portraits, but if you know my work, you know I like gritty urban locations.
Nate plays guitar (very well I might add) and hopefully he'll remember me when he's a rockstar and needs his album cover shot. Hope you like them, let me know what you think!

Elizabeth Jordan

I heard once that newborns just eat, sleep and go #2. Not the case with this one. No sleeping, yes a nibble here and there, but the faucet was on and she had daddy & mommy running for towels the whole shoot. It was quite comical.

But how precious is she with her red hair and plump pink body?


And the lucky mother is...

Leslie Cook Nelson!!!

Congratulations Leslie, contact me or Tami by Tuesday May 11th so we can set up your portrait session!

Thank you everyone for playing.  This is my first giveaway (but not last, so check back again)  and I was very happy to have 36 entries!  You all poured your heart out and made wonderful comments about your mothers. Thanks for sharing, they were great to read.

Since I didn't post yet why my mom is the best... My mom has always been there for me, been one of my best cheerleaders and been a best friend. We've cruised the mall together blairing the Pointer Sisters from her Buick (yes, it was terribly embarassing and crazy fun at the same time) and share a love for cookie dough and cats. Apples don't fall far from the tree. Even when I was a teenager testing her strength, she was right there. And because a picture is worth a thousand words, here is one of my favorites of mom that's always been on her dresser. That's not of me, but of my mom and my brother. Isn't she beautiful!? Happy Mother's Day mom, I love you!!!


Alexis Priscilla

Alexis Priscilla is the tiniest baby I've ever seen in person. At one week old she weighed in just under 6 lbs (do I have that right mom?) and has the most delicate features. She's beautiful and making mommy and daddy very happy.

It's sometimes hard to tell if newborns are boys or girls. But one look at the pink camoflauge blanket, purple tutu and that big pink bow show that she's all girl.

Dad is a living history buff and former military, so honoring the past and capturing this part of him was important. Being small enough to curl inside this World War II helmet, (although as you see she didn't love the idea), made for an interesting contrast. She was mad and angry at us, but making a strong image none the less... then a thoughtful comment was made by dad that sacrifices were made so that she could be here. Really she was much more content cuddled in daddy's arms for her photographs.
