Gavin Edward, just over 2 weeks old.  Congratulations to my friends Geoff + Geni for making such a cute little guy!  :)

  • Deann B. - What a sweetie! Your color is gorgeous. :)

  • Jess - Congratulations is right! What an adorable little guy, looking forward to meeting him:)

  • Heather - Great pictures of the new little guy Kim! What a cutie. I can’t wait to meet him!

  • Gina - No joke, that is one cute little guy. Congrats!

The last few weeks have been out of this world here in the PNW.  It (almost) makes up for the countless months of gloom and rain that we have to endure.  The sun on my skin makes me happy, and I can’t wait to enjoy the beauty of the northwest summer.  What could be better than an evening spent with great friends, BBQ-ing on the beach, beneath a sunset like this…


Golden Gardens.  Seattle, WA

  • Heather - Wow, that turned out great! Last night was so much fun. Can’t wait for summer either!

  • Briony - wow! breathtaking!

  • Gina - The rain all winter is totally worth if for THAT sunset.

  • Jess - Awesome shot, Kim! You captured it perfectly, as usual. Great night as well!!

  • Claire - unbelievable!!!

These two make each other laugh, which in my opinion, is the most important part of a relationship.  Their big day is scheduled for September, and I can’t wait!

Jessica + Will spend lots of time in coffee shops, and Will actually proposed in one, so we took a few shots in Cafe Vita.  My apologizes to Jessica’s Grandmother for posting another kissing shot, I promise there were only a few.  :)


  • kayla - love em…you always do an amazing job. love the one where they are sitting and she’s in front of him.

  • Will - WOW! These are fantastic!! To clarify, I didn’t propose in a coffee shop, rather, I proposed after we went to one, but we still love coffee and I like the shots you got very much!

  • Jessica - GORGEOUS. I love them! :)

  • Jessica's Grandmothe - All of the pictures are wondeful.And as it turns out the last
    black and white where they are kissing is my favorite. Who would
    have guessed when I’m the one who thinks Will should keep his
    lips off Jessica! Great Pictures – Thank you to the photographer!

  • Briony - these are breathtaking! that kiss pic is totally wall worthy!

  • Kate - Yeah … these are super rad! I really can’t choose my favorites … how do you find such neat locations? OK, maybe those B&W coffee shop ones at the end are my faves … but I heart them all. :-)

  • Andrea - Jessica and Will are the greatest. Their wedding was freaking badass, and I am really looking forward to seeing the photos from the big day! Kim is a wonderful artist! I’m enjoying all of the sets posted here :D

Just a few things I’m pretty excited about…

Looks like I made it on the “Top Photographers of 2008” list over at WPJA.  I’ve tied with several other photographers at spot #104, so yes, I’m at the bottom.  But I don’t mind being at the bottom of the top list! :)  Since WPJA is international, I’ve competed with wedding photographers in every country in the world!  I’m pretty pumped that I made it here… maybe 2009 will put me mid list?  A girl can dream.  


I also placed in the recent contest over at ISPWP.  Check out all the winners [ HERE ]
