Recent work from Real Photography
What an honor to photograph this multi-day educational training, held at the gorgeous Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Seattle WA. The Indigenous Breastfeeding Counselor Training "provides foundational lactation education to Native people so that they can provide clinical breastfeeding support in their communities." More photos may be found on my Events page - this training was filled with community, deep learning, babes-in-arms and a profound sense of dedication from both the students and instructors, Camie and Kim. As a photographer, this event was both powerful and fun to photograph; as a doula and a mother I found the wisdom and information shared throughout my time photographing to be deeply touching. To learn more about this training and to support them, please visit their Facebook page!
It was also an extreme joy to recently photograph the Union Hapkido International Seminar held at Enso Center in Redmond WA. This unique event was a phenomenal showcase of immense talent and hard work from Hapkido Master Martial Artists (high level black belts) from around the world, as well as students from the Center. Congratulations to all of those who promoted to the next belt level (dan) during this event...you are truly an inspiration! The Center is a beautiful location to photograph, and the sense of encouragement within the community they have created is also palpable. Thank you for inviting me to capture this event!
I am SO excited to announce that I have a new line of print products available for you! I truly believe in the quality of these materials offered through my professional print lab, as well as how powerful an image can be once you're actually able to feel it in your hands, and have it become a part of your life.
In addition to the glossy & matte prints, canvases, and metal prints already available for purchase through your online gallery, I am now offering the following INCLUDED with ALL full portrait photography sessions. I want you to come away from your session with something tangible that you can gift, see hanging throughout your home, or cherish for generations as an heirloom!!
Above are some examples of the new fine art prints, printed on beautifully soft & thick press paper with a white border. These are available at no extra cost when you purchase your full gallery from A Moment in Time sessions, or included as a complete boxed set with all Full Storytelling Sessions!
If you prefer albums, then I also have available beautifully designed, 8x10 professional albums for Full Storytelling Sessions. These include thick matte pages and are available in full spreads to collages, using all of your favorite images. Both the fine art print sets and as albums are available as add-ons for all event and special occasion photography - including weddings & elopements, parties and Cesarean birth stories!
I was so honored to be able to capture the end-of-the-year holiday party for the South Seattle-based Lactation Lounge, run by Camie Goldhammer, IBCLC and attended by the local families who receive support throughout the year from the free drop-in group. What a warm and welcoming atmosphere here, helping new parents adjust to life with baby, addressing challenges (feeding or otherwise), and celebrating all that has been accomplished over the course of a year!

I am so excited to finally share this wedding with you!! Everything about this day was wonderful: fall sunshine, Converse sneakers worn by the wedding party, the bride and groom's children making everyone tear up... Of course, you cannot forget the cake cutting WITH A REAL KATANA SWORD!! 😯😯
And as well as the love between two incredible people, this celebration was made even more beautiful by the binding of their two families together in a personally meaningful place, surrounding by their entire community. What a true honor to be present for such love and JOY, and to capture the magic of this day!!
Thank you!!! <3
Documenting personal events is truly a joy: I love getting to meet and be around so many different people, but I especially love being able to be a fly-on-the-wall, and capture moments as they happen. It's an honor to be invited into people's lives for these special celebrations - capturing this little girl's outdoor first birthday party was no exception. I am thankful to be doing this work, and most especially if it helps other people be more in-the-moment during their own events, interacting more face-to-face instead of needing to also document everything. Memories are precious; so is time well spent in good company!
