I had the opportunity to partner up with Bellingham Alive and SO many AMAZING local vendors and shops for this Winter 2017 Comfy & Cozy Fashion Edition! Our beautiful model Brooklyn is always one of my favorite people to work with, the hand picked pieces from Lisa Karlberg from a variety of shops all across Whatcom and Skagit Counties were beautiful, make-up and hair was done onsite at the Majestic Inn & Spa and touched up all day by the lovely Elizabeth Marie Makeup and Hair by Alise! We had a variety of different outfits and wanted to feature not only the full outfits, but to really focus on the little details that make each outfit unique. Find a full list of boutiques and shops below for all the outfits you see here!
The ground was covered in snow when we left Bellingham headed up toward the mountains this Sunday afternoon. We weren't totally sure what the weather at Silver Lake would be like, but the sun was out and we knew we had to try! Despite the howling wind this was the most beautiful day for an engagement shoot. Snow topper trees, fantastic light and the most snuggley couple (even if it was so they could stay warm!) <3 Really looking forward to watching them tie the knot.
Beautiful flower bouquet by my friend Pozie by Natalie! Check her out for your next event, wedding or special occasion!
Deb contacted me months before Wayne's birthday to set up this fantastic shoot to feature his bagpipe! Wayne has been playing since he was a young boy and it's a major part of his life that Deb really wanted to capture. We got the family pets in on the action and wandered their beautiful property and Wayne played for us. It was magical.
This family is very dear to my heart so every chance I get to photograph feeds my soul in a really special way. I taught this little (or not so little anymore!) munchkin preschool many moons ago and it's been such a treat to watch him become such a sweet young man. This pup is a new addition to the family since our last shoot together and pets always make sessions that much more fun. I LOVE shooting in the snow and this family really made it look rad. Happy Holidays, friends!
