Mount Rainier Wild Flower Season – Paradise at Sunrise

13 Aug

Mount Rainier is one of the top destinations in the Northwest during the summer season. The wildflower season is much anticipated and short lived. On sunny, warm weekends, the traffic is lined up for miles to get into the park (think of the drive through Currituck to the Outer Banks on a Saturday afternoon during July).

For the past two years, our summer has come later and later, therefore the wildflowers are blooming later and later (in case you didn’t know, it takes a while for a glacier to melt!) This past weekend, I met up with a group of photographers and headed out at 3am (the 1:45am alarm came way too early)to hit Mount Rainier at sunrise.

We beat the traffic up to Paradise but only because we might be slightly coo-coo. We were heading out for the day just as all the bar hoppers were headed home to crash.

While everyone was turned toward Mount Rainier, I looked backward over the waterfall and saw this:

The wildflowers weren’t at their peak yet so most of the flower shots below were taken on the drive down, along the sides of the road. Luckily the park service has accounted for random stops and created extra pull out areas and parking spots for us photographers who can’t wait to jump out of the car and get a few shots off.

This is the waterfall featured in the shot above – just further down the mountain.

Thanks to Sharon, I have a few shots of me in action too 🙂

And the resulting shot:

Oh Canada Wedding Day {Auburn Wedding Photographer}

19 Jul

 

They say it’s always iffy weather wise for any outdoor wedding scheduled before July 4th here in Washington.  Mandy and Shane’s wedding was July 1st – Canada Day! Very appropriate considering he’s from Regina, Saskatchewan! Their luck held out and the weather, though cloudy, held perfectly for this outdoor ceremony. This was the first ceremony held at the new Green River Community College wedding terrace.

Congratulations, you two! Thank you for letting me be part of your day and trusting me to capture your big moment!

3 Generations::K Family {Tacoma Family Photographer}

18 Jul

Megan contacted me to do a family shoot since they haven’t had a family session since their littlest was born.  It just so happened that Brandon’s dad was in town so we had the opportunity to capture 3 generations together.

Thank you, Megan and Brandon for letting me spend the afternoon with your family.  It was truly a delight!

I love when my clients absolutely love their portraits! This made my day!!

“Cassie! You are so TALENTED! I can’t believe how amazing these photos turned out. I’m forever indebted to you. I’m genuinely shocked that I look so pretty – and I totally am not a conceited person – it’s just that the angles you used, the locations, the poses, the lighting, and the editing all made for seriously stunning portraits. I can’t wait for another big event so I can call you up! I’ll be recommending you to everyone I know.  Thank you.”

Stacey {UW Graduate 2012} Seattle Portrait Photograher

19 Jun

The odds were against her when she got pregnant with her son at 19 after just starting college. She persevered and had another, a daughter at 23 and graduated with honors this year from the University of Washington. She saw Conner & Chloe as motivation to finish what she started so she can provide her kids with the kind of life they deserve. We are so proud of you, Stacey. Congratulations!
