semiahmoo, whatcom county, wa family photographer :: the louwerse family

It’s always a little nerve wracking taking another photographers family photos, but I knew this family would make it easy on me – and they sure did!  Karin is a dear friend of mine and just so happens to also be an amazing photographer:).  I just LOVED the outfits she picked out, the nautical theme fit perfectly with the location.  We had gorgeous weather as well, and I could’ve just kept going and going…  but all good things must come to an end!

Karin, you are seriously gorgeous and amazingly photogenic, and you have a beautiful family.   THANK YOU for allowing me to come into it and capture these moments of your (blessed and busy and fun) life!   I had a blast, and I hope y’all did too.

Enjoy!

bellingham, whatcom county, wa wedding photographer :: rachel + dan

Their day finally arrived!  After having a ton of fun at their engagement session,  I was so excited to be part of Dan and Rachel’s big day in August.   From start to finish, it was a lovely day full of love and laughter!   The locations for getting ready, the ceremony, the reception and the portraits all turned out amazing.  The highlight of the day for me was when we got to take a private boat ride out on Bellingham harbor after the wedding and before the reception.  They got to relax, enjoy some champagne and enjoy some quiet moments before the reception began.  Just beautiful.  Congratulations again, you two, hope you enjoy your pictures and that they are a treasure to remember the day your story began!

A big thank you to my dear sister in law Katrina of Master’s Touch Photography for second shooting for me – loved having you!!  :)

If you made it this far – thanks for looking!!

I love this sweet family.  So much love going around.  Stacy, you’re a beautiful mom and wife and all of your boys are so blessed to have you!   Even though I was sick this day, the evening light was too good to pass up…  and they made it easy on me.  I think start to finish this session was done in 10 minutes – they were that easy!

bellingham, whatcom county, wa engagement photographer :: dan + rachel

Oh these two.  They are so adorable, fun and in love.  I got to meet them a couple years ago at a wedding I shot, and was thrilled when they contacted me about shooting their wedding this August!   In June we took their engagement pics, and it was so fun to get to know them – and their dog Baker – that day.  Their wedding is now past, but as you can tell I’m behind on my blogging… trying to catch up!   So, enough chatting and on to the pics!

everson + sumas, whatcom county, wa family + child photographer :: my world

My heart couldn’t be more full as I look at these pics.   It’s kind of like looking at a sleeping child…  your heart just fills up and all the frustrations of the day just fade away and don’t matter anymore.  We have had such a great summer so far… it’s been so full of time spent together and I can’t help but feel so blessed.  We have done tons of day trips, the outdoor options here are endless and we’ve been taking full advantage!  Ocean, hikes, parks, lakes… you name it.  I’ve seen the kids enjoy God’s creation, enjoy each other and build stronger relationships in the meantime.   Oh, don’t worry, it’s not all picture perfect by any means – we have our moments and days of fighting, frustration and grumpiness (kids and me:)) – but looking at things as a whole I can see God’s hand working through all of that for our benefit.  It’s been a different summer with our main man gone evenings and Saturdays to reserve police academy… so it’s the 5 of us all day and some nights, 6 days a week.  I wondered at the beginning of this how I’d survive… but now summer is half over already and we’re just fine:).

I know in years to come, I will look back at this summer with true fondness, and good memories.   I’m enjoying the ages the kids are at so much, it’s hard not to feel sad about the fact they’re growing up so fast.   But, that’s how life goes, and I need to learn to accept that we are all just going to keep getting older.  :)
