The White Family

This Christmas Arika’s mom bought her a family session from me as a present and we finally nailed down a day to do the shoot this past weekend. Arika and her mom are the owners of Sugar & Salt Bakery in Vancouver, WA and their shop made for the perfectly playful location for this family shoot. One of my favorite aspects of this session (besides the yummy cupcakes) was that everyone in the family was wearing super fun socks— even dad! 

This week I had the absolute honor of capturing the proposal of Ryusuke to his girlfriend of 7 years, Yumi. The pure love between these two was so evident and it was so awesome to see how excited and surprised Yumi was. Congratulations to this wonderful couple! 

Keep an eye out for their engagement session this spring!

I had the wonderful privilege of capturing my good friend Carlos propose to his bride-to-be Amanda a few days ago. It was such a fun and unique proposal. Starting, I’m sure, with a lovely date Carlos brought Amanda down to a dock on the waterfront where 6 of their closest friends and I were waiting. With us we had sparklers for their arrival, bunny ears for everyone, and a ring. At twilight on their approach the song “You and I” by Ingrid Michaelson was playing (hence the bunny ears), everyone lit their sparklers as Carlos and Amanda walked through. At the end of the dock is where he popped the question. She said yes of course and we all celebrated. It was definitely a proposal to remember.
