There's something so stirring about photographing a woman that is growing a little life inside her. This session was no exception. Rachel was a few days from her due date patiently waiting for the arrival of her little one.Read More
I often say it. But, I'll say it again. I feel so deeply thankful to be invited to document seasons of people's lives. It is such an honor to preserve these moments. They truly are flashes of what life looks like during a few moments of time. It strikes me again and again how quickly time presses on.Read More
The first new days of soaking in your precious little one. They are foggy and exhausting yet so utterly sweet. Once all the fog clears the newborn creases have often faded also. It's easy to forget the sweet details.Read More
...Well, well. Goodness me, the summer has FLOWN by...My little tribe and I soaked in all that warm sun, went on lots of adventures and even painted our house! As much as we are already starting to miss summer...With school off to a great start and that cool, refreshing air blowing in...It is getting me all inspired for the full fall ahead.Read More
Okay. I love these two humans.
Jon + Kaylie are literally the kindest most humble people that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We have had the honor of getting to know them over the past couple years.
A few weeks ago I had the honor of documenting their love. Gentle rain fell on an overcast day. We took a ride over to Bainbridge Island and took a quiet walk through an amazing garden estate. We had the place (almost) to ourselves as we dodged puddles and swooned over the white crocus' that were reminding us that Spring is near.Read More
These. Are. For. YOU.
If you're like most moms I know, you probably are the one taking the photos. We always have an excuse, our hair hasn't been brushed in 4 days. We're wearing leggings from the day before with yesterday's breakfast smeared on the rear. Our socks don't match. No make-up. It's been a long day at work. On and on and on.
I'm with you.
Here's the thing though: We need to be in the photos.
It's so important to be present, in-the-frame.
One day we'll look back and our babies are going to be grown. This season is temporary. Our now and always babies will cherish pictures of their momma.
Most of all, photos of them with their mom. Wrapped up in her arms. Sweet nursing moments. Walking hand in hand. Butterfly kisses. These moments. Let's make this happen!!!
I am offering one date in April for you to have that opportunity. We will take a little walk and document you and your babes together. Mom's of older kids, these are for you too!! It's still just as important to be in the frame!
This is open to expecting moms-to-be too!!!Read More
Every session has lots of planning that goes into it. Talks about location, wardrobe and timeline. But, there are always so many unknowns. Weather is usually one of those, especially in the Pacific Northwest. I roll with the punches, I actually don't mind the rain. But, sometimes I am so pleasantly surprised that my heart just wants to burst. This was one of those times on a January day, we were showered in sunshine.Read More
This year was Oh-so-good. I am so so grateful for all of my incredible clients. Whom trusted me to document such intimate and fleeting moments. Thank you for supporting me and my family. I am so so deeply thankful for each and every one of you.Read More

Oh goodness what a lovely group of Honeybee Sessions we had this fall. As I'm winding down for my annual Christmas Vacation to spend time with my family, it is fun to reflect on all growth 2016 has brought. These events are such a joy of mine and I am so thankful for all the returning new and returning faces year after year.Read More
Oh this family. I have had the honor of knowing them for many, many years. I knew them when they began dating, I attended their wedding, their family grow and last year had the privilege of documenting them together.Read More
Chelsie and Tyson got married on their nine acre riverfront property. Their ceremony was in the shadow of the home Tyson built on the land that he grew up on. Even though the location was epic the most important thing to them was to include Chelsie's son Griffin in the day. They were surrounded by twenty of their closest family and friends.Read More
