Kasie & Hallie

A Twin Sister Senior Session

Hallie and Kasie are so much alike..duh, twins… but also so unique in personality and style. We chose Point Defiance park for their session, which worked out so well because it gave us a lot of diversity so that we could showcase their unique traits and style.

While this wasn’t my first twin session, it was my first twin session with same gender twins who look so much alike. I learned a lot. Keeping track of who was who, and which sister wore which outfit was key! It would have been easy to get confused… as you can see the girls have a very similar look at first glance!

We had perfect fall weather, and I couldn’t be happier with the great outfits that the girls chose for themselves. While I do offer, and recommend a wardrobe consultation for those who need it, it definitely wasn’t necessary for Kasie and Hallie. They totally rocked their dress choice, and their hair and make up were on point as well.

Here is another session where I incorporated one of my vintage quilts. This one was boldly colored and on the smaller size. perfect for one or two people to add some variety to seated poses, and to protect from the ground. Anytime I can use one of my ever growing collection of quilts it makes me a happy photographer!

These girls have one proud momma, and they totally should. Both girls were accepted into Central Washington University, and they’ll be heading off to college together as a team!

Thank you Hallie and Kasie for joining the ranks of Sashem Seniors…it was such a pleasure spending an afternoon with you!

The Galbraith Family

A Wright Park Family Session

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the Galbraith family ever since Rachel was the maid of honor in the very first wedding I ever photographed. She, and her wonderful husband are the kind of genuine, warm, compassionate people that you can’t help but like. They are gentle souls… and as their family grew with two boys and a gorgeous little girl I ‘ve had the pleasure of seeing them once or twice a year to capture their family photos.

This year we met at Wright Park in Tacoma with their extended family, including Micah’s twin brother! While photographing the family I found out that Micha’s dad - the Senior Mr. Galbraith was the actor who played the original Aqua Velva Man! How amazing is that? I just think that’s so cool!

It was a great time getting to know Micha’s twin brother, and all of his sisters, their spouses and kids. This is one full, charismatic group - you just have to smile when you’re with them!

The fall color at Wright Park in October can’t be beat… it’s really gorgeous, and the mature trees and surrounding architecture make this one of my favorite locations to photograph families. There’s room to roam, and you can take advantage of the gorgeous conservatory as well as a charming metal gazebo, and a small pond area.
