Dnycia's Ft. Steilacoom Park Senior Portraits | Tacoma Senior Photographer

I met this sweet senior's mother, Letitia, at a get together with some friends and she started telling me about her soccer-loving daughter, Dnycia, so I was excited when Letitia contacted me to do Dyncia's senior portraits! We had one reschedule due to rain but as a Pacific Northwest Senior Photographer I considered that lucky because the next was beautiful and we even had some sun!!

Letitia had warned me that Dnycia was shy but camera's don't lie! Just look at that smile!!! Once she warmed up a bit I think she even had fun! I know I did! So nice to meet you Dnycia, good luck in the rest of your senior year and I'll see you for family photos in the summer.

XOXO,

Sarah

Winter Wonderland Stylized Senior Shoot | Olympia Senior Photography

Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE shooting in the snow? Well....I absolutely do!

I got together with some fellow photographers for this fun and snowy Stylized Senior Shoot . Tammy of Tammy Dalquist Photography brought her stunning squad of Senior Models and we had a blast shooting and playing in the snow. 

As a Pacific Northwest Senior Photographer I love the rich greens of our beautiful scenery, the way red from this shoot pops makes me grin ear to ear. Red is BY FAR my favorite color to shoot!

Girls, you are gorgeous and I had a blast getting to know you a bit. Countdown is on until the end of senior year, make it memorable!

XOXO,

Sarah

Vantage Desert Stylized Senior Shoot | Olympia Senior Photographer

Right about now every year I REALLY start missing the sun! As a Pacific Northwest Senior Photographer I love the rich PNW mood of winter but I will forever miss that warm glow of the sun! Rain rain GO AWAY, so that sun can come make my day!

Here are some gorgeous sun drenched images I took back in September! This was such an amazing, adventure filled day - several other photographers and I piled into a car and road tripped over to Vantage, WA. Isn't the scenery amazing!!!!!  I cannot wait to go back come spring! Message me if you are interested in a portrait session in the gorgeous location.

***Desperately seeking an adventurous couple MADLY IN LOVE who wants their love documented with this gorgeous background!!!

How do YOU get through the dreariness of winter?

XOXO,

Sarah

Abigail's Pioneer Park Senior Portraits | Olympia Senior Photographer

On a beautiful, sunny September afternoon I met Abigail, her mom Jen and her little sister Sidney at Pioneer Park in Tumwater, Washington. Abigail is fun, creative, goal-orientated and sweet as pie! I had a blast chatting with her and her family. Abigail plans to join the military when she graduates and then continue her education. She is making things happen!

Abigail and her sister, Sidney, are the best of friends. Their light-hearted banter kept me laughing and smiling. I can only hope that my kids have a similar relationship and have a friendship on top of being siblings! So cool!

XOXO,

Sarah

Maddie's Percival Landing + Horse Farm Senior Portraits | Olympia Senior Photographer

Maddie was the recipient of a Senior Portrait session that I gifted on my local Buy Nothing site, and I am so glad she was! Maddie is one in a million, as sweet as she is smart and as smart as she is funny. Even from our short time together I could tell what a well-rounded, creative and inspiring individual she is. So excited to see this girl take on the world next year!!

XOXO,

Sarah

Tipsoo Lake Mt. Rainier Stylized Senior Shoot | Olympia Senior Photographer

On August 21st (My Anniversary, don't judge!) I joined a group of local photographers for a stylized senior session at Lake Tipsoo and it was as fun as it was beautiful! Lake Tipsoo is a beautiful little lake located about 90 miles from Olympia in the Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington. Between the lake and the view of Mt. Rainier it is well worth the drive, plus the wildflowers add stunning little pops of color. Special thanks to Tammy from Tammy Dalquist Photography for coordinating and bringing her team of gorgeous model seniors!

XOXO,

Sarah

Evergreen Valley Lavender Farm Stylized Senior Shoot | Olympia Senior Photographer

The 'what'

Hello there, first time blogger alert!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Tammy Dahlquist of Tammy Dahlquist Photography, her gorgeous team of model seniors and a handful of extremely talented photographers to create a stunning photo shoot at Evergreen Lavender Farm in Olympia, WA. As a Pacififc Northwest Senior Photographer, this was a dream event!

The 'where'

Evergreen Lavender Farm is located at 9733 Evergreen Valley RD SE in Olympia. It is a small farm but what it lacks in size is more that made up for in it's beauty, charm and a surreal fairy tale like environment. There is a neat little gift shop on the premises that boasts some amazing lavender products including but not limited to jewelry, culinary lavender, essential oils, jam (try the the blueberry lavender, it's a bit of heaven on your tongue,) art and lavender beauty products. Fresh and dried lavender bundles are also available for purchase. The owners, Thane and Peggy, are super nice and very knowledgeable about lavender. It's amazing to see the spark in their eye when they talk about their farm and their products and it warms my heart to watch such nice people living their dream.

This little local farm is very worth a visit and much closer than the big farms in Sequim, so stop in and say hi and tell them I sent you!

The 'good stuff'

Such a lovely evening and the portraits turned out amazing! I had a blast and look forward to this being the first (ok second, last year I took my kids there) annual adventure at Evergreen Valley Lavender Farm! I Can't wait for next year. Would you like your own beautiful lavender field portraits?? Contact me to schedule your one of a kind, tailored just for you, senior portrait (or amazing engagement or maternity) session.

XOXO,

Sarah
