PinExt The Jacobsens {Tacoma Family Portrait Photographer} Tacoma, WA

This is my dear friend Stacy.  She is a photographer.  She is an artist.  She could be a model.

She is one of the most talented photographers I know in the South Sound and although we rarely see each other, we have the love of the color red in common, black clothes, vinyls, junk food, fur and photography in common.

She asked me to take her family pictures.  I was blown away, because really, there are easily 1500 photographers in the South Sound, BUT we took them and she loved them and that made me love her even more.  Check out her gorgeous family below.

and her work here.

It is such an honor and a joy to be able to photograph this family!

We are blessed to be able to share lives with friends from all seasons of life but to see the lives of people I went to middle and high school with unfold in front of the camera, it is one of the coolest and dearest things.

Andrea and I met freshmen year of high school, while I was attending Lincoln.  Her husband Korbett, work with me at the local youth resource center.

We had the privilege of photographing their wedding back in 2013 and now we get to follow their family!

Check out these cuties below!

PinExt The Towers {Tacoma Family Portrait Photographer} Tacoma, WA

I have known E’lana since I was three years old.

We have been friends longer than we haven’t.  I am willing to wager that she might be my oldest friend.  Thirty years.

Of course, like many, we don’t remember being friends at age 3 and 4 (she’s older) but we have pictures playing at my cousins birthday party to prove it.

Her parents have watched us grow up.

In 8th grade, we “re-met” at church camp.  Then our friendship was short lived as her parents relocated her entire family to Vancouver, WA.  When you are 13 and 14 years old, a 2hr drive might as well be Africa.

As we were both choosing our colleges, we found ourselves attending and cheering for the same school, and that started the beginning of a real friendship that I have had the honor of enjoying for the last 15 years.

E’lana has been a true friend.  Kind, thoughtful.  More of a sister than anything.  We have seen each other through the hardest parts of life and I can always count on her to be there, even if time and distance have kept us apart.

I cherish who she is, her heart for others, her family and I am thankful that after all of these years, God has continued to sew our stories together in such a way.

I love capturing her growing family.   They are so photogenic? Right?  That littlest Tower, is baby Q who was born almost one year ago!  SO fun spending a few moments creating these gorgeous memories for them!

Love you so much Towers Family!

PinExt The Samuels Family {Tacoma Family Portrait Photographer} Tacoma, WA

We have had the total and complete honor of photographing this family from the beginning.  We have photographed them in every stage, from boy number one to the littlest Samuels boy.

Shavonne and Victor are the most beautiful couple.  Loving each other passionately and leading their family with the same love.

There is nothing more beautiful then to grow with a family, our third family session with them in the last 5 years.  We love them so much.

In addition to being an incredible Proverbs 31 wife, Shavonne also has a fashion blog.  You can give it a spin here:  The Mommy Biz or The Stylish Gardener

PinExt The Poterson Family { Tacoma Family Portrait Photographer} Tacoma, WA

This is our gorgeous friend Stacey.  Stacey is an incredible owner and photographer behind Arizona based Stacey Poterson Photography and has an bsolutely beautiful family.  I met Stacey 5 years ago over a blog.  She modeled for my friend Kacey, before Kacey was really my friend. I remember seeing pictures of her and her husband and thinking what a beautiful couple they made.  As time went on, I came to realize and discover that Stacey was also a photographer and that she shared not only the same love for senior photography that I did, but also so many mutual friends.  We quickly became friends on the internet and quietly supported each other.  Two years in we finally met, and every time we go to Phoenix we make sure to see her.  I was thrilled as we prepped for BLINK when she asked us to shoot her family.  Who could pass on the opportunity to do that?  Look at them?  I am so thankful for Stacey, her heart.  She is one of the most encouraging and supportive people I have met in the community and I am so thrilled to call her my friend.

Naturally, a family session wouldn’t be one if Wisdom didn’t hop in.  So we let her.   As we always do.  Love seeing our kiddos together!

Thank you so much Stacey for trusting us to capture your gorgeous gorgeous picture perfect family!

Love you girl!

PinExt The Romeros {Tacoma Family Portrait Photographer, Tacoma, WA}

we always love seeing the Romero’s.  We have been photographing this super cute family for almost three years.   I remember that the littlest Romero was in a stroller next to Wisdom, the first time we met.  Just a few weeks a part, they have watched each other grow up and we can mark our first meeting by how much the kids grow from season to season.

we LOVE being their family photographer and always delight in making their portraits happen year after year!

PinExt Hannah, a Class of 2015 Gig Harbor High School Senior { Tacoma Senior Portrait Photographer}, Tacoma, WA

Hannah is such a beautiful human being.  Her spirit is incredibly sweet and she is so kind.  She loves Jesus with all of her heart and her inner light completely and totally shines through.  Hannah was our very first senior booked for 2015 and hearing about her from her awesome mom, made us so excited to photograph her.

When we met her, you could feel Hannah’s light completely coming through.  She was a total natural in front of the camera, totally radiant.

When I think of the kind of girl I would want Wisdom to be when she grows up, Hannah is an incredible example of that!  Confident, self assured and God fearing.
