Aaliyah- Warrior Angel {Vancouver WA Photographer}

This family touched my heart when I came across a post from Susana on Facebook about her daughter Aaliyah's first chemo treatment. We somehow became friends through mutual friends on FB but I didn't know her before that post. Her 2 year old Aaliyah was diagnosed with Leukemia just around Thanksgiving.  I instantly felt I needed to contact her. I don't know what they are going through, I can only imagine.  I do know that families often get so busy with medical appointments and the stress of fighting illnesses that it can be hard to do regular family things like have your photos taken or just have fun together.
I wanted to give them the gift of family photos so that they could have these now. Things are looking really good so far and their family is optimistic and hopeful. They are ready to fight and win. I pray for their strength and for Aaliyah's health to improve.  Susana is starting a journal and just set up an account on caring bridge. To follow their battle and/or donate to their family visit their page on Caring Bridge

 Here are a few of my favorites from their family portrait session:

T+D=Love {Vancouver WA Wedding & Engagement Photographer}


Oh I had so much fun doing Tamasen and Daniel's engagement session in Battleground WA. Our weather was so unpredictable that day... We canceled at first due to rain.. then the sun broke through the grey clouds a bit and we jumped at the opportunity to get out there and take advantage of the dry weather while we had the chance. It was so perfect. The sky was a giant soft box and we didn't get rained on.
We went to the location where they got engaged. I was impressed with the massive old barn. There were lots of animals hanging out with us too. We even spotted an owl. The chickens loved the camera and Daniel made friends with a cat.
I'm so thrilled that these two have chosen me to be their wedding photographer. I am so excited to work with them again and tell the story of their wedding day.

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do!

What do you think? Did you love them??

Hope to hear from you :) 

Much Love,

Some of My favorties from 2013 {Vancouver WA Wedding and Portrait Photographer}

I felt the need to post a blog with a collection of some of my favorite images from 2013. I've had the opportunity to photograph so much love, so many smiles, so many firsts, so many beautiful weddings, new babies, kisses, laughter, tears and more. I have had the opportunity to meet some amazing people and build new friendships. I've had the opportunity to snuggle some tiny new babies and capture them at just a couple days old. I'm so blessed to be able to document people's lives. I just want to say THANK YOU to all my past and current clients. THANK YOU for allowing me to capture your life in 2013. Here are some of my favorites from the year --since I rarely blogged... I hope you enjoy them!
