Riffle Family

So here is another case of reshoot! I love this family! They are so fun and energetic, with just a dash of crazy mixed in! That’s the way I like it!

I shot them once, but they survived so I had to try again ;)  They were actually the first people to PAY me to photograph them, which was a huge step in the right direction for me. You can take a look at their first pictures here, and my first attempts at family portraits!

How sassy is that chick? Her mom swears she’s never let her watch America’s Next Top Model , and will never because she already has too much sass, but I could’ve sworn that’s all they watched at their house! Riley told me not to stop taking pictures of her, because “I need to get my poses in” !!! I am not making this stuff up, I love how much attitude this chick has! So fun!

The OTHER Egbert Family

My Uncle and his wife came over and took pictures of their cute family and cute boys! Remember Bradley from This Post? Well he's 3 months old now, and just as stinkin' adorable! He's a chunky baby (my favorite kind) and loves his older brother! It was fun to shoot them, mostly because I love them so much! We did individual shots, family shots, couple shots, and brother shots! Love it!

How cute are these kids? I can not handle it! They are super relaxed too! I was not only an hour late to the photo session (oops!), but I had to duct tape my backdrop to their wall ! :( I was irritated at myself, and so I figured they would be too, but nope! They were 100% fine! I think they were trying to calm me down! Their pictures are so fun, and I had a blast shooting them! Jacob made me laugh the whole time! He was doing his “Blue Steel” faces (Zoolander anyone?)

The Lovely Megan

I’ve know Megan for as long as I can remember. Her family lived right next door to mine, and all the children were friends. I seriously have very few childhood memories of playing in the backyard without Megan in them! So when she asked me to do her senior pictures I was thrilled! Plus she is awfully adorable :) We tromped around Tacoma, she walking amazingly well in her stilettos, me  tripping over my comfy Velcro Skechers! The rain stopped just long enough to finish at the Park, and then started dumping. It was tons of fun to shoot her, and her pictures turned out awesome!

That last picture was the first one I took the whole day, and mostly my favorite! Thanks Megan!

Tari’s Belly (and her other kids!)

Tari is having her 5th, and last baby (so she says!) She asked me to do maternity pictures of her, since she didn’t have them done with her other kids. So we hadn’t set a date, but this morning I got a call from her. She had her hair cut and it looked super good! So it was now or … later, just without perfect hair! She look beautiful, and her kids were so cute. I had to rush home and edit some right away!

Here, for your viewing pleasure: Tari, her belly, and her adorable children!

Ms. Jordie!

Warning: This post may be a little bias! She is my baby sister after all!
Okay, so we went and took the first cycle of Jordie's senior pics today! She looked so pretty and the lighting was perfect for what we wanted to do! I was just beyond happy with the results! I will edit them in the next couple weeks, but here is a sneak peak!!

Mikey and Jordie

Mikey and Jordie have been best friends since they were born, and they are now basically siblings. Mike is leaving on his mission (for those of you aren’t LDS, a mission is a two year voluntary trip, sometimes in other countries, to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to others) Anyways, Mikey is leaving on his mission soon, and Jordie is nearly devastated. So we took some memory pictures for them :)



P.S. Everyone thinks they are going to get married, but they say that they have never even had crushes on each other, lets wait two years and see!!

Welcome to World Bradley!

At 8am September 5th Bradley Brian was born! This baby has given his mom A LOT of trouble, but he was definitely worth every second. He is a little stinker, and a complete sweetheart! Welcome to the world Baby Bradley!

Bradley open eyes

He was awake most of the time we were at the hospital and looking around at everyone!


He was also a gassy little cuss!


I already love this little guy!

Rachel and Austin

Just to let you know, I love Rachel. She is so cute! Her and her cousin, Austin are the only 2 graduating from their High School this year, and Austin is the first boy to graduate in quite some time! They are so amazing! We did what I am going to call a "pre-shoot" at 4 o'clock and it was starting to get dark, so we were hurried. In the next few weeks were going to a couple more locations when there is better light. So look forward to seeing more of their cute faces!!


Austin looking manly!


Rachel getting embarrassed because I was making her play songs on her saxophone.


The entire Class of 2010!

Here is a little taste of Laurisa. There were so many more adorable photos to choose from, it was really hard to narrow it down.  I love that she was laughing the whole time, too. What a doll!

I had a blast with you Laurisa! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Mikey -Class of 2008

My second senior picture session!! This one was a piece of cake though. Mikey is like a brother to me. He and my sister have been best friends since they were born. He's lived around the corner from me since we were kids. He didn't want his senior pictures taken, Mom did. Mom wins (Mom's should always win!) He is so stinkin' cute too! I just love this kid.

What a stud!

Kipley -Class of 2008

This was my first round of actual senior pictures! It was a difficult one too, but I managed to make him smile for a couple shots, and embarrassed him along the way! It was a fun shoot, and they turned out quite cute I think (and so does his Mom!!!)

The Riffles

I am back tracking and posting pictures I have already taken, and never got around to making a blog for :) Thanks, Whit

So while I have been taking pictures for quite a while now, I really didn't get in to photography until High School, and my “career” didn't even exist until after I Graduated. I think one of the first times someone asked me to take their family portraits in exchange for money was for the Riffles. They are an amazing family that I have known for a while, and I absolutely am in love with their kids! We had a fun session, and I think they turned out pretty well for the kick off of my professional career!

Their youngest, Riley looked so sassy the whole time, I love it!

After every single picture I took TJ asked if we could do "silly pictures", and I was cracking up the entire time! I just adore this family!
