One of my favorite things to do is to jump in the car with my family and go on a quick road trip. I feel so lucky to live in a state with so much beauty and variety.
Kelsey and Willie Shaw are friends of mine and it was such a privilege to be chosen to document their third pregnancy and their beautiful family.
I got so excited when they decided to have their session with me deep in the rolling hills in central WA.
Only 2.5hrs from Seattle, with plenty of options for food and lodging in case you don’t want to drive back to Seattle the same day. I am always happy to give my clients recommendations once they book.
It’s one of my favorite places to photograph, because it’s easy to access, quiet and stunning.
In the Spring time this location boasts one of the most diverse, lush and colorful collections of wild flowers in the state. In the Summer and Autumn months, greens become beige, and the hills rich with endless depths and textures providing the perfect backdrop.
Gabi is an incredible artist. Extremely thoughtful when it comes to her sessions, from beginning to end. You can see that she pours into her business, marking her unique stamp on her work. From her website to her social media, her saved highlights with inspiration and information for her clients, her portfolio of work, it is all so well curated and easily portrays the vision she has for her work. You know what you are going to get in the final product but at the same time you will be screaming in shock when you receive your very own photos. Gabi wants to work with you when it comes to how you will style yourself for your session because she cares about the outcome of your final product. She has spent countless hours scouting breath taking locations so you have beautiful scenery mixed with organic moments between you and your loved ones. She communicates well, and makes the session silly and fun. So important when you have kids! Gabi has a very sweet and caring personality. She truly cares about people and it shows. She is very determined in her work, striving to always do better and reach what she is aiming for as an artist. When you hire someone to take your photos you trust them to make a vision come to life and she makes sure it happens.
Our personal experience with Gabi was all of this. Our photos of a very special time in our life are so cherished but also make us feel so beautiful. The mix of wardrobe, moments and stunning scenery have us feeling like we are looking at a dream every time we look through our photos. Thankful that our photos will be life giving for a lifetime. Thank you so much Gabi.Kelsey and Willie Shaw
Effortless, sweet with a spark of editorial vibes. Let’s romanticize life, those sticky toddler snuggles, the butterfly feels, chubby cheeks, beautiful mama bellies, and endless giggles.
You know they won’t be around forever.
