Vacation Beach Session at Deception Pass | Whidbey Island, WA Family Photographer

To say that I love my little sister is an understatement of epic proportions. She is so stinking cute, funny, kind, and caring. And she is the world's greatest mama (as well as auntie).

We are different in many ways, but also similar. We clearly look like we came from the same mama. We are both silly (goofy, even). And unfortunately, we both struggled for years with fertility issues. I remember hearing the news that she and Casey were not only expecting, but pregnant with twins. I was shocked and overjoyed. I wondered how they would manage, but knew they would find a way and love every day of their new adventure.

I remember meeting and photographing Hallie and Barrett for the first time. They were just peanuts, but even then had such distinct, unique personalities. Now walking-talking-jumping-running 16-month olds, their personalities continue to bloom and delight as they laugh, play, snuggle and love on everyone around them. Mama and daddy are never far away (you can't be when there's TWO toddlers running in opposite directions), and they wouldn't have it any other way. This is one happy, loved family. I can't wait to photograph every milestone is their extraordinary journey.
