Nunez Family - Tacoma Portrait

The Nunez family started their portrait session downtown at the Spanish Steps and then we headed over to Owen Beach at Point Defiance Park for the rest of their session.  Sometimes it’s nice to mix it up a bit and add a little of the urban setting along with the beautiful parks and beaches that are in the Tacoma area.

They had a family portrait, a senior who had a few portraits completed and there was a recently engaged couple in the family – I think we covered all the bases!

We have portrait sessions that start at $80.00, with the improving weather dates are booking!  You can book your session by calling us at 253-970-5689 or e-mailing us at

Thornewood Castle ~ Lori & Jim’s wedding photographs

Lori & Jim chose the historic  Thornewood Castle in Lakewood for their recent wedding and reception.  Lori (of Granny’s Bridal Boutique) devoted countless hours preparing for this big day by making many of the favors for guests and for the decorations.

Lori’s perfectly beautiful ‘Real Touch’ roses were amazingly real looking and perfect for the bride who might have allergies to real flowers.

It had been raining the day before, the day of (sprinkles) and even the day after their wedding.  However, after their ceremony there was a brief period of actual sunshine!  We took advantage of the break in weather and got some portraits outside.

The napkins and the napkin rings were made by Lori.  I’d never have guess they were all ‘homemade’  She was a true perfectionist in everything she touched.

The Swarovski crystals were lovingly and patiently placed on the ladle and tongs one by one by Lori.
