My New Love {Diaper Bag}

Anyone who knows me, knows I love chevron print and colors. It's so chic and can be used to hit the beach or the mall. When I got pregnant with my second baby I knew I wanted something less diaper bag cliche-ish and more fab/feminine/pastel and of course, in chevron print. I searched and search until I found Ivey Expressions on HELLO, Lovely! I fell in love and I'm still swooning over this bag. Fully customizable, wipe down insides, and enough room to fit my gym gear and diapers. Joanne, the owner, was super patient with me on designing the right features and I couldn't be more in love!

Of course I eventually realized how amazing this bag would be for all my camera equipment too! For all those photographers out there I do believe she's in the process of designing camera bags too!

Free Photos? Yes, Please!

I love July 4th and to celebrate I gave away 15 mini sessions for local families.  Secretly, I just love photographing families and was using it as an excuse to give some sessions away. Unfortunately most people that registered canceled :/ Being that, I decided to hook up the families that did participate and gave them more images that I advertised! I love paying it forward so I hope my generosity inspires them to do something special for someone else!

Bissa Wedding-Bremerton, WA

Len & Jaime were so much fun! Their wedding was the Naval Hospital in Bremerton. (Len is a Corpsman) If I was going to have a small chapel wedding I would have done it the exact same way they did it. Small, intimate, and leaving room for fun with their friends and family. Since it was such a small crowd I had lots of help from their friends to capture these images. Such a great couple. I hope you guys thrive in your new marriage!

Whaling Days-Silverdale, WA

This Saturday, July 28th, we headed down to Whaling Days in Silverdale, Washington for the parade, rides, and fun time. The festival they have there is perfect for a family like ours who have small children. There are no Gravatrons for toddlers to fly away on! Remember those? I used to love the Gravatron!
