It’s interesting the places you find your soul mate.  It’s always unexpected, and always a cherished story.  I found mine in an old friend, someone who had walked beside me for years when suddenly my eyes were opened.  Heather found her’s on a dance floor.  I’m not sure that’s the first meeting for them, but I know they fell in love as they danced.  Full of laughter and fun, it seems dancing is the perfect place to have their enthusiasm for life take expression and lead to love.

I loved the contrast of the embroidered leaves of her dress against the real thing

I must tell you, this is my favorite picture!!  Thank you Heather for being willing to get so close to the bumble bees!

And the one that made her laugh and fall in love…

Isn’t Heather’s look precious?

I love diamonds and flowers, so why not put them together?

I’m into the laughter.  I really am.

Again, another of my favs…

The best way to end is to start where they began.  Dancing.

John and Heather, you are beautiful together and we loved working with you.  Thank you for letting us join in your day!

She calls him Jolly, not only because it’s his last name, but because it’s how he makes her feel.  She laughed as she told me.  And she didn’t mean “bowl full of jelly” Santa Clause “jolly”.  More the “I’ve met my soul mate” and definetly the “I’m in love” type of jolly.  Pretty sure you know what I mean.  And now they’re both Jolly.  Two weeks ago these two love birds tied the knot, and we were invited to caputre the day.  Here’s a quick preview…More to come soon…

There were a lot of really good guesses.  You are an impressive group!  But only one got it exactly on…The order of my favorites are 1. Les Mis 2. Peter Pan and 3. Crime and Punishment.  Those are some phenomenal works of literature!  Les Mis is absolutely beautiful and artful.  For those of you that have only watched Peter Pan, you’ve got to grab a copy.  I’m not sure why I liked Crime and Punishment so much, but I’ve got to tell you, it is a smart work about politics, although not for the squeamish.  And congratulations to Jaclyn, for guessing them in the correct order first!  You’ve got a $15 Starbucks card coming your way!!!

Elements to achieve perfection.  One:  Freshly ground espresso.  Two:  A deep set chair.  Three: The sweet sound of music.  Four: A good book.  (and it if could all take place in Paris, it would be beyond perfection!).

There is an art to a well written work that I am enraptured by.  The words of a song, the phrases of a poem, the imagery of a scene in a novel can take me captive and not let go.  If a line stands out to me, it will repeat over and over in my mind.  I always wonder where the author came up with a description that could capture me so wholly.

My love for literature finds it’s home in my book club.  A group of friends and I meet together, taking turns at picking the book we read through.  It has been an awesome way to read works that I wouldn’t normally pick myself.  Below are the books we’ve read while meeting together.  And in the list lays our contest!  I have 3 books that are my favorites.  Put them in order of my top 3 favorites, and win a $15 Starbucks card!  Either respond in the comments, or on Facebook.  I’ll announce the winner on Friday!  Good luck! (The titles, in order of appearance below are The Catcher in the Rye, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, The Jungle Books, Peter Pan, Les Miserables, Crime and Punishment, Watership Down)

There is something intrinsically lovely about spring.  Flowers not only bloom on the ground, but they take over the trees as well!  Finally you can start leaving your winter jacket on the hanger, and grab a lighter scarf.  I look forward to it every year!  You can finally let winter go and move into the vibrance of spring.

And to make it even more lovely, add in 6 month old Isabelle.  Full of giggles and smiles.  It doesn’t feel all that long ago that we were doing her newborn shoot.  It’s amazing how fast she’s grown (not like it’s anything new that babies grow, but you know what I mean)!  She continues to become such a beautiful girl!

This is one of my absolute favorites of the day….

You got to get some goofiness into every shoot…

Millers, it’s always a pleasure working with you!  I can’t wait for Isabelle’s next shoot!

I’ve lived all of my life in Washington, less college, and I’ve never seen it rain like it has in the last few months.  It probably wouldn’t matter to me all that much, except I’m a photographer that likes to shoot outside.

To honor the patriarch of the family, we set up a family shoot with the Holmes family.  Saturday was fast approaching, and the rain was stalking our weekend.  The only other day I prayed so hard for it not to rain was my own outdoor wedding.  Saturday I woke up to the sound of down pour.  My heart sank.  I drove to Kirkland in the rain, with no sign of it letting up.  I pulled up to the park, and suddenly, the clouds parted!  It was like my prayers had been stuck in the clouds and finally made their way through!  The one hour without rain that day was the hour of our family shoot.

And look at this handsome man!  Well worth the rain stopping for…

And his lovely family

Thank you all for such a fun day!  It was great working with you!

Love has many different looks.  The love of a mother for her child,  the love of a couple that has been married for 50 years… They all look different, and they are all beautiful.

There is something that sparkles with new love.  And that shimmer is all over the faces of Scott and Jac.  Intrigue and joy glow on their faces.   You can see their love for each other the minute they walk into a room.

Scott and Jac, I have loved working with you and can’t wait for your wedding!!
