Life in the Northwest. Full of Beauty.

Lifestyle Photography

We offer a comprehensive range of photography services, from individual portraits to maternity and newborn sessions, to family shoots. Or let's get creative with "Slice of Life" shoots where you pick the activity and we document it. We aim for a mix of candid and casual posed images using natural light and settings that are meaningful for you.


First we get together and talk about the shoot: to discuss locations, set times and a plan B for bad weather, and give you the opportunity to tell us what kinds of images you're hoping to get. The shoot itself takes anywhere from half an hour to 3 hours, depending on the option you choose (see list). You can expect digital photos of your shoot within a few days, and prints within the week.
Except for the mini-portrait session, all of our shoots have the option of 2 photographers. That means two sets of eyes, which means more diversity, different perspectives, and a richer combination of candid and informal posed shots.
We set up every client with a password-protected gallery (or we provide images on a data stick). You'll receive between a 10 and 45 images, depending on which option you choose, as high-resolution digital files (suitable for printing up to 8"x10").
Yes, prints! We believe that the beautiful images we will capture of yourself and/or your family are best appreciated and more memorable as quality prints, on walls and in photo albums.
This is why all our photo session packages (except the mini-portrait session) include a sample of six 5"x7" prints. You will also get a $50 discount code to be used for the purchase of any prints from your shoot - on photo paper, fine art paper, or even canvas!
We do all our own printing using high quality giclée printing on rich, archival quality media. Check out our print studio page for more information.
Our photography and printing services are confidential, from the camera to you. While we would love to use a selection of the best shots as professional samples to showcase our work (like those on this site), we only do so with your explicit permission. This is clearly detailed in a photo services agreement that we go over with you before  committing to the session.
