Larry & Laresa

Rose-Lily met up with Larry & Laresa and their blended kiddos (Abby, Alayna & McKenzie) back on 10/11/15 at the Northern State Recreation Area in Sedro Woolley for an Engagement / Family Session.  The light was perfect and we were able to talk Mother Nature into holding off on the rain (thanks Mother Nature)! We love shooting at the NSRA!  Every time we do a session their we discover something new – it’s an incredible place for photography!  So our happy couple met 3 years ago online, got Engaged last April and will be tying the knot at Tazer Valley Farms in Stanwood on 07/09/16.  Larry & Laresa and their kiddos enjoy camping, movies and Chinese food (& hanging out with their Chickens, Dogs, Cat & Fish)!   We had a lot of fun on this special day & that energy is captured in these photographs!  Please join us in wishing our happy couple ‘Congratulations’ on their special day next July & here’s wishing them many-many happy years ahead!

Kathy’s Family Session

Rose-Lily met up with Kathy, Brian, Amanda (17), Aaron (14) and Matthew (9) for a stunning fall Family Session at Forest Park in Everett back on 10/04/15!  Our happy family looked incredible set against the beautiful fall leaves & the amazing late afternoon light.   When they aren’t having professional photos taken, Kathy’s Family enjoys hiking, skiing and going to the movies!  Kathy did a great job helping everyone with their outfits and the different settings in park made for the perfect Family Session!  Check out these amazing highlight images from our fall Family Session!

    Amanda ~ Class of 2016

    It was so fantastic to work with Amanda back on 10/04/15 for her Senior Session in Everett.  Amanda is graduating this Spring (2016) from Marysville-Pillchuck High School & then heading off next fall to study Civil Engineering at either the University of Idaho or Montana State (not sure which one yet – stay tuned)!  Here are some of Amanda’s likes:  Country Music (Carrie Underwood particularly), ‘Butter Chicken’ (an Indian dish that sounds amazing!), hanging out with her friends, Skiing, Singing & playing Basketball.  She did an incredible  job with this session and I think these images really capture her positive, outgoing personality!  Please join me in wishing Amanda congratulations on her upcoming graduation as part of the class of 2016 & here’s wishing her the best of luck on her future endeavors in college & down the road of life!

      Michael ~ Class of 2016

      RLP Seniors met up with Michael back on 9/27/15 for an amazing Senior Session in Arlington at River Meadows Park!  We walked the grounds and found some spots for pictures that were absolutely perfect!  Michael’s home schooled, but part of the Track Team at Arlington High School, so we were sure to feature his Cross Country Gear (i.e. “XC”) during our session!  When Michael isn’t running, he likes to listen to ’21 Pilots’, play the piano, walk his dog Snickers, chow down on steak & potatoes or go hiking.  He’s planning to study Engineering at College next year, but until then – he’s going to keep on running!  We had great light & a great day (thanks for your assistance RoCherra!) – check out these awesome highlights!
