This beautiful family melted my heart instantly.  Sweet little Archer and Bowie welcomed me into their home (literally) with smiles and excitement.  They just gained a new baby sister, Marley Joelene, five weeks ago and were eager to introduce me to her.  Their love for her is already so evident.

With the beautiful Pacific Northwest as their backdrop, their day could not have been more lovely.   The rain let up just before we gathered, and the cool November air was refreshing. We were surrounded on that day by the peaceful sound of nearby waterfalls which seemed to be flowing even more beautifully than usual, probably thanks to the recent heavy rainfall.

Jocelyn, darling, you could brighten the darkest of days with your sweet smile and sparkly eyes!  Jocelyn is almost 8 months old and she is already stealing the hearts of every person she encounters. This joyful little love was so content during our session. She liked getting all glammed up in her tutu and pearls and she couldn't stop admiring her sweet baby feet.

Timing, patience, and perseverance.  After hearing Alicia and Mike's beautiful love story, those are the words I would use to characterize their journey. Ironically, those are also the words I would use to describe our adventurous afternoon in the Pacific Northwest wilderness as we set out to capture the perfect engagement photos!

Magic.  Maybe it was the combination of the crisp, cold air and warm, golden sunset.  Or perhaps it was the way he looked at her; endearingly, grateful, and completely in love, both with her and the baby she carries. Whatever it was, it made this session truly magical.
