Sarah – 2017 Lindberg SHS Senior

*****

Beautiful, beautiful Sarah……

There’s just something about a girl & her guitar that just “gets” me….

Sarah’s a music girl and I LOVE that she incorporated her passion

for sound at every turn during her recent senior session!

It’s part of her heartbeat- if she’s not making music- she’s listening to it….

it’s like Oxygen… you need it to breathe…. I understand that at the very core of my being, also.

*****

We were dodging rain drops this day- and it was a dark, heavy sky – but her insanely cool eyes

and that peacock hair brightened up my day!  We ruled this PNW weather!!!

Go rock the world girl!

Oh!  All of those Porter boys and those eyes!!! And don’t forget their pretty, pretty momma!

{swoon}

Not only are just yummy to look at…

Brian and Sarah are hilarious to hang out with and  Mason and Grant

are the definition of way-too-cute-for-their-own-good….

and obviously loved beyond measure!!!!

*****

Good times were had- even in the rain for this session because they are so fun and always up for an adventure!

Can’t wait until our next one!!!

Katie – 2017 RHS Senior

*****

Beautiful Katie.

Katie is the niece of one of my dearest high school friends.

Through him, I have met his extraordinary extended family,

Who, now… in a weird and wonderful way, have sort of become my own.

I love them dearly in a way I can’t really explain.

*****

Katie is an amazingly articulate, graceful and wise-beyond-her years teen.

Her ease and maturity would make you think she’s already graduated from college-

Her stunning looks are just an added bonus to her kind heart.

She’s a responsible daughter, sweet big sister, elegant dancer and good student-

who could possibly want for more!

Go set the world on fire baby girl- I can’t wait to see what you do!!!!

xoox

  • Sean - I love these. You captured my niece so beautifully. Love you sis. We may not share blood but there is no doubt you are my family.ReplyCancel

Courtney

*****

My dear friend Courtney met up with me recently for a weekday beauty session.

We shot in old downtown- during business hours in the hustle and bustle,

and JUST beat the rain in a rare patch of sunshine that lasted just long enough for us.

Courtney is following her heart and breaking out into new business ventures and this was the perfect time to create new images for her new website!

Go get ’em love- I know you’re going to do great things!!!

The Russell Family

*****

I met the sweet Russell family on a very raining, windy and wet morning in Mukilteo recently.

I honestly thought we would have to reschedule-

but they were brave and  suddenly it stopped raining and we embraced the wind

and we made exploring the  empty beach, armed with bubble wands look it was no big deal.

They were a whole lot of wholesome beautiful and I look forward to new adventures with them!

The Kelley family 2016

*****

The Kelley family had me over to their place for their yearly photo visit recently.

Scotty and Lizzie have grown about a foot since last year

and are just so fun to talk to and play with!

Daphne & Brett looked wonderful as usual and they could give a class on

“What to Wear” for a photo session…..

I LOVED their outfits!!!

We added bubbles this time, because… why not?  Bubbles make everything more fun!

‘Til next Fall guys!

The M-fam gets a rock-star award for playing in the rain with me….

We had plans of hazy, back-lit photos….. and it was alternating between just windy and straight-up monsoon down-pour…..

but were brave and went for it- and i’m so glad we did!

This family is  easy and fun, athletic and out-doorsy so the rain wasn’t going to bother them!

And I LOVE that they used one of their racing bikes, because its a big part of their lives!

Can’t wait for next time and new adventures!

Ame ~ SHS 2017 Senior

*****

Amelia is a senior.

{That ranks right up there with having to say that my own kid is a senior… which is coming faster than I can bear..}

I’ve known Ame’s family since before she was born…. back when all of us parents were first getting married

and doing grown-up things like buying homes and cars, having kids and landing grown-up jobs and building our own companies.

Our families have seen and been a part of so much of each other’s lives for 20+ years…..

and yet I’m still not ready to admit that she’s old enough to be a senior.

I’ve watched this smarty little blue eyed sprite grow into such an amazing woman!

She’s humble, intelligent, kind, compassionate, athletic…. the list goes on….

Beautiful is simply the icing on the cake.

No need to wish you luck baby girl…. I know you’ve got it handled.

Love you kiddo- so proud of you!

xoox

  • Luann - Beautiful work Didi. You captured the wonderfulness inside and out of our precious Ame. No one could have done it better. These photos made me cry,she grew up way too fast!ReplyCancel

 

I was so excited to hear from Sally that she wanted family photos, after I shot Maggie’s senior portraits!

I got to roll back out to their sweet little farm and hang out with the whole family this time.

They definitely hold the corner on beautiful at their little slice of Heaven

out behind Snohomish with their three kids and a barnyard full of fury friends.

All this… because two people fell in love……

Thanks T-fam… see you next summer!
