Anna | Whatcom Falls Park

Anna | Whatcom Falls Park

I have known Anna since I was about 5 years old. Our mom’s went to high school together and when my family moved from New Zealand back to Washington state in 1997 they reconnected. We became fast friends with Anna’s family and they feel more like cousins than family friends. We spent our childhood growing up together, becoming awkward teenagers and today we are closer than ever. I feel so lucky to have grown up with these special people.

I’ve been wanting to jump back into taking portraits and Anna was so brave to be my subject! We drove to the beautiful Whatcom Falls Park together and while Tra was running around catching Pokemon, we explored the park taking shots and posing in the forest.

Morning Rituals + Pancakes

Breakfast is the perfect meal for people who love routine. For some reason natural social conventions dictate you cannot eat the same foods for dinner every night. If you eat spaghetti seven nights a week, you’re crazy. That rule doesn’t apply to breakfast however. I...

A Spring Afternoon in the Gardens

A Spring Afternoon in the Gardens

I’ve experienced so much winter that I think I’m starting to develop Stockholm syndrome. I find myself justifying the value of winter whenever friends ask if I miss spring and summer. Why would I want summer? You can’t cuddle up on the couch with your boyfriend, a...
