A few weeks prior to their wedding, Jennifer & Rafel went to an event where they had a Hawaiian pig roast.  From what I understand, Rafel then wanted a pig at the wedding.  However, Jennifer who works for a catering company told him it was to late to get the pig.  Then she surprised him at the reception with a Hawaiian pig roast!  He was one very happy camper.

Olympia Family Portrait ~ ‘J’ Family

A few months ago I had announced that when we reached 400 likes on our Facebook page we would give fan number 400 a free portrait session.  Well, we have now exceed 400 fans (THANK-YOU) and Tina was lucky 400,  We first met her husband at the wedding of Courtney & Clayton, where he was a groomsmen. 

This time we met the entire family at Priest Point Park in Olympia for a mini session.  We are happy they were the family to receive the portrait session as we learned that the last time they had a family portrait the youngest was just a toddler.  I think it was time for an updated portrait before they move on with their lives!

BTW, we will be doing this again when we reach 500 fans on Facebook!  If you haven’t joined us, what are waiting for?   Facebook

Tacoma Portrait Photography ~ Jillayna & Chris

Jillayna’s mom is a friend of mine and awhile back I had mentioned a special for portraits with your pets.  Jillayna contacted me immediately asking about it.  At that time, we were busy, she was busy and things just didn’t happen.  So, we finally caught up at the ‘graffiti garage’ in Tacoma for some portraits with her boyfriend, Chris and their two dogs, Ringo and Dozer.  Soon after we drove over to Point Defiance Park for a few more photographs and then they were on their way to Sonic for lunch.  Someday, Sonic will work it’s way up toward Kenmore/Everett area so Jillayna won’t have to drive so far. =)

Now I’m left sitting here, wondering who’s wedding bells will ring first!  Jillayna or her mom.  It seems both have found some good men.   BTW, you know who to call to photograph the weddings!

Tacoma Family Portrait ~ ‘B’ Family

Lisa & Kevin were are second ever wedding for us to photograph 7 years ago October.  While we have seen them at a few other weddings, it was nice to catch up with them and their family.  I had a lot of fun meeting her boys and not only are they handsome they enjoyed being in front of the camera. =)

Both Lisa and I had spent some time at the Tacoma General switchboard before moving on to other bigger and better things in life.

What a beautiful day and what a beautiful senior!  Robin was a total delight to work with despite her telling me several times that she was awkward in front of the camera.   I didn’t think she was awkward at all, maybe a little shy however my biggest impression was the fact that she’s gorgeous in front of the camera.  I’d put her back in front of my camera in a heartbeat!

While most schools had to have senior portraits in by October this year, if you are still waiting to get yours we can get you taken care of!  And Juniors, we will be looking for reps for next year so give us a call 253-970-5689 or e-mail us at
