Meet your 2016 Lake Stevens Aquafest Royalty

This group of young women are more than just ball gowns, crowns and pretty faces.

They are academic achievers and community stewards with a wide range of talents.

And this program boasts 5 Lifetime queens- which means that they have devoted 3 years to the Aquafest Pageant program and 3,000 hours to community service!

{yes- you read that correctly…. THREE thousand hours!!!!!!}



To read more about the program:

“The girls ranged in ages from 5-17. This county wide pageant selects 11 young ladies to represent Aquafest in community service activities and parades throughout Snohomish County.

The contestants competed in four major categories including interviews, public speaking, casual wear and formal wear.

They learn the importance of personal presentation in a business setting, public speaking, the importance of community service, and confidence.”


To the participants and Directors Dixie Behn and Christine Eglestad –Thanks for a fun evening once again ladies!


The S-fam


Summertime in the City

is a beautiful combo!


Their active sporty boys keep Jen & Jason on the run-

and we were finally able to hang out for a bit on a  gorgeous early Summer night recently.

I know that I’m guilty of saying this often lately-

But I really love following my client families!

I’m amazed at much Ty and Carson  have changed since I photographed them last!

Can’t wait to see where life takes them!

When everything is in bloom, the light is insane and you’re not booked that evening….

You grab your youngest and go play in the last bit of Golden Hour Sun!

Love my baby girl!

Seriously- the flowers are insane right now!


A little Mom & Me mini-session the other night with the Fitz girls….

Mother’s day is coming up soon…. when was the last time you mommas got into the photos with your kiddos?


I love that Jenn & Pheobe make it a point to get with me a couple times a year to be photographed together,

just having fun and sharing space.

Our kids grow up so fast-

Catch these moments before they take off on their own and it’s even harder to pin them down for some snuggle time!
