Meet the Stanley’s. I first meet the girls while covering Honored Elder’s Day at the Seattle Girls School last spring. It was one of those moments when everything just clicked. You know how that feels?-everything just lined up right so to speak. Then this past fall we got together for a family session at Seward Park in south Seattle. The timing couldn’t have been better. It was warm (not like today), slightly over caste creating a soft gentle light and just the right amount of fall color.
In October little Raymond (v2 as I like to call him) turned 2. A quick plane ride to Boise is all took to get home-made cake, icecream, baby bowling, visiting and a stop at the zoo.
Ah, baby bowling. How can you not love it. It’s a right of passage isn’t it. Even when Raymond get’s bossy and tells me to stop taking his picture and get in the darn pool.
After all the festivities we went to the Boise Zoo. First stop the carousel. Madison was a seasoned pro and totally knew what to do. Raymond took a while to figure it all out but I’m guessing it won’t be his last carousel ride.
One of my favorite things about the Boise zoo is the ground squirrels exhibit. It’s awesome. People get to walk in these tunnels the pop their heads up like the squirrels. At which point you are on eye level with the busy busy squirrels.
O.k.-at the risk of sounding like a bad adult, this was totally worth the price of admission. Madison ran up to check out the big brass sculpture of an elephant. Little did she know that it had a motion sensor and sprayed water when triggered. It was frigging awesome!
Holly & Will’s wedding-July 16th.
I arrived a few minutes early so I was able to dive right in with the detail shots. Will, the groom created the boutonniers our of pounded/shaped copper. The rings were custom done by local jewelers
Will’s just a fun guy in general. He was in prime form the morning of and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Holly found her gown on Craigslist if you can believe it. It was fantastic! The color, the detail-loved it.
Forest details around the venue; Kitsap Memorial State Park.
Will is an artist by trade and a part time teacher-he sandblasted each of these bottles with the letter B for their last name. They were filled with water and corked, ready to be opened and used or taken home as a keepsake. Holly created the “flowers” out of sticks tissue paper glued on in simple jars with pebbles.
Thankfully instead of the usual salmon they opted for wood fired Pizza from Rolling Fire. Delicious! And how cute is a heart shaped pizza, I mean come on!
I recently had a fantastic engagement session and I just got to share it! OMG did we have fun. and no booze were involved. Imagine that.
In less than 2 weeks Will and Holly will be tying the knot. No more kissing carnies for these two…that is unless they have a career change. This concept had been bouncing around in my little pea-brain for a while. They were the PERFECT couple, no wait, they are the PERFECT couple.
Shawn & Mark

I must confess-Shawn and Mark are my neighbors and we don’t know each other all that well-YET. I like to think of this as a fantastic ice breaker.
