Sneak Peak of the Cartwright Girls!

I cannot believe it’s already the last day of August!  The month passed in a blur of non-photography related projects – most notably, The Great Home Renovation of 2012, which sounded so…romantic at first. and full of creative possibilities.  Six weeks later, and still working in the same area, the magic is gone, ha!  Thankfully, we did make some good headway, which means it’s back behind the lens for me!

Here is a sneak peek of my session yesterday with two little sweeties, Georgia and Gretchen.

Sarah and Nathan

From the time she was a little girl, Sarah dreamed of having her wedding at her grandmother’s house in Deer Park, Washington.  There’s a kind of Secret Garden atmosphere to the backyard that you feel as soon as you step into it.  Patches of tall white daisies  dip toward the sun, and rustic stones cut paths between leafy bushes, olive trees, and pines.  Waterbugs skip through a bubbling creek, and a long, old wood fence sits between a grassy knoll and the picturesque red barn next door.  In the soft evening light, it is nothing short of magical.

This past weekend, Sarah’s dream came true when she married her husband, Nathan, in an intimate ceremony attended by their immediate families.  It was the perfect way to honor the memory of her grandmother, who passed away in May, though was certainly there in spirit.

I love that the photos of Sarah and Nathan took on an enchanted quality, thanks to some gorgeous lighting.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Happy Things! (Come in Small Packages)

I’ve been working hard over the last few months to develop the perfect packaging for Park Road Photography, and I think I’ve done it!  I love that it incorporates so many different textures – fabrics, linens, waxes, papers with different weights and mattes, soft ribbons, earthy strings and ties.

This means that after booking your session, you will be mailed:

Then, after final edits are completed, you can look forward to receiving a pretty little package in the mail…

…full of happy things!
