These two turkeys crack me up! Their Mom just happens to be my BFF so I’m sure my dorkyness has rubbed off on them! 😉
When Princess Ariel of Enchanting Events asks you to do her engagement photos, you say “Yes your highness!” Then you freak out a bit remembering you bought a sparkly blue dress a few years ago knowing you’d have a session where it would come in handy…ummm perfect time I’d say!! Sydney and Ryley, you are so dang perfect together!
Not everyone enjoys being in front of a camera so when Conner’s Mom contacted me to do his Senior Pics she warned me that he was worse than his older brother whom I photographed a few years ago. Of course it’s always the people who don’t like their picture taken that are the most photogenic! Conner was so easy to work with and I must say the pictures turned out great for someone who isn’t a fan of the camera! Thank you Conner for letting me be a part of this exciting new chapter!
Megan is one of my sisters best friends from High School, so I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her wedding day! We started at the botanical gardens in Bellevue then had a short and sweet ceremony at the Bellevue court house. Dinner was at the amazing Fogo de Chao in downtown Bellevue surrounded by Megan and Tim’s family and close friends. It was a simple and sweet day that I’m so happy I was a part of!
Ms. Chloe wanted a grunge vibe for her Senior session so we headed down to good old Seattle. She has the most infectious smile and seriously gorgeous glowing skin. She’s a natural in front of the camera!
From now until the end of September all the proceeds from the sale of my personal images will be donated to the Washington State Dept. of Natural Resources in support of their fire fighting efforts. As many of you know Keith and I are huge supporters of the National Parks and are heartbroken over all the devastation the wild fires are leaving behind. People, land & animals are suffering and we would like to help in any way we can. Thank you for your support!! Please share this with your family and friends.
I would like to introduce you to a new branch of JW Photography,
Peppermint and Almonds Photography!!
Peppermint and Almonds is a special branch of JW Photography focused on capturing families battling childhood cancer. I want to help families who are fighting childhood cancer document and capture their everyday lives. I want to capture their raw emotion, their joys, their tears and everything in between.
The inspiration behind Peppermint & Almonds is the incredible Ms. Jocelin Hough. I had the honor of documenting a day in Jocelin’s life about a year ago. I learned, among so many things, that the fluids they use to flush her chemo-port tubes has a very bad taste so she eats peppermint and almonds to help take the taste away! Jocelin and her family inspired me to create P&A to help other families and bring further awareness to childhood cancer.
If your family or a family you know are battling childhood cancer please contact me for more information. There is no charge for these sessions and I can travel anywhere in Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish and King counties. Please email me at email@example.com & don’t forget to ‘like’ Peppermint and Almonds Photography, and find us on Instagram @peppermintandalmonds!
