We set out to take Sofija’s photos on Labor Day the day before school started for her and it was a great way to end summer and get excited for her senior year! She has such great style and I love that she wanted to get some of her photos taken at Gas Works Park with so many unique backdrops to choose from. I know she will have an amazing senior year because she is so involved with her school and her swim team! Enjoy!

This session was so special to me because Jamie’s mom, Wendy,  and I go all the way back to college where we were sorority sisters of Pi Beta Phi at University of Washington back in the 80’s.  She was my grand sis or grand little (as it is called now).  Here is a picture of us back then (Wendy in the middle, me on the right and Gigi on the left who was my little sis and Wendy’s big sis).

When Wendy contacted me I was so excited to meet Jamie and get something really special planned for her.  We ended up having to do Jamie’s session in two different days because the first day we had planned was very gloomy and rain clouds didn’t fit with the sunlit session that Jamie wanted.  We were able to capture some super fun urban feeling shots though on that first session and also amazing photos of Jamie with her sister and mom too (who looks like I a sister I might add)!  The second session was a little over a week later when the summer sun had come back in full glory and we captured so many great shots of Jamie that I had a hard time narrowing them down.  Jamie, I hope this year is so much fun and full of amazing memories as you finish your senior year.  May these photos be something that you will treasure as you look back years from now on your senior year.  I had so much fun capturing them for you!!!

I had so much fun with Rachael senior session.  When she said she wanted to have her session at her beach cottage in Belfair Washington I knew it would be a bit of drive for me but so worth it and I was right!  The whole family came out to join in the fun and so did her cute little pup (who made an appearance in brother Alex’s session last November) The property offered so many different backdrops and even though I had not been there before, it was perfect for want Rachael wanted.  Everything we shot was in walking distance and I love that we were able to capture with the things around her that brought her so much joy and so many memories!  Their dock was crazy long….and it was super fun to have that incorporated into many of the shots….rumor has it Macklemore shot a video on it.   So cool!

Working with Taylor was a dream….she was such a sweetheart and a natural in front of the camera. She is gorgeous but what is really special is that she is just as beautiful on the inside. Have a great senior year Taylor…and you should be so proud of all that you have already accomplished as certified nurse! You are dreams are already coming true!!!
