Hope and Memory Photography bio picture
  • I help clients capture their child’s personality. Oh, and I’m really good at acting (I used to be a performer in a former life), terrific at eating dessert (my fat jeans would definitely agree), and my Russian accent is stellar (Russians have confused me for an actual Russian until I give them a blank face when my Russian vocabulary runs out). Clients love my creative whimsical photos and are always commenting on how I’ve captured them in such a unique and beautiful way. Personally, I think my ability to return emails faster than Superman’s flight speed is pretty impressive. My Momma thinks I’m determined and that I have great hair and beautiful eyes. My friends envy my ability to balance everything on my overly full plate (they should be envying my husband because I certainly couldn’t do it without him). My clients love that I effectively capture their family and bottle moments in time for them to savor for years to come; I help them hold on to their memories.

The Bookworm: A Library Session | Seattle Child Photographer

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” - Jorge Luis Borges

Libraries are a magical place. They are filled with a million different worlds with a million different stories, each one taking you to places unseen to learn things unknown. It’s no secret that my imagination always has me with my head in the clouds, which is a big component of my inspiration when it comes to my photographs. Is it any wonder I love libraries? I really don’t know why I haven’t shot a session in one before, but I may or may not have let out a little squeal when this momma agreed to duck indoors to the Seattle Public Library in Greenwood on a

Week 1 | 365

I’m attempting a 365 project (a photo a day for 365 days).  I’ve never done a 365 before but I have tried a few 52 projects (one photo a week for a year). Historically, I tend to fall off the bandwagon right around the 15 week mark.  I’ve noticed so far – granted, I am only 10 days in – that one a day seems easier because it is rapidly becoming habit (yay!) so I don’t just forget about it.

Naturally, I have to share our first week here.

Juliet: the drama
Ophelia: the mischief
Hero: the muffin

Twins! | Seattle Child Photographer

I’ve always wanted to photograph twins. They fascinate me and the special bond that twins hold captivates my imagination. And I must say, these two are pretty great (actually, the whole family is pretty spectacular). We had a great time playing around at Gasworks Park in the cold. I had fun playing with the color of this urban session as well. Aren’t they fun!

Sometimes I know that I am going to love the shot as soon as I hear the shutter snap. As a photographer there is no better feeling than the one you get when you know you’ve gotten the shot you were after. As simple as this photo is, it evoked that wonderful adrenaline rush for me and was hands down my favorite of the session and I would venture to say one of my favorites of the year!
