• Welcome

    Becki is a natural light photographer inspired by the grandeur and the whimsy of the Pacific Northwest.
    Specializing in high school seniors and weddings, and based in Bellingham, Washington.

Sydney. (Insert a bunch of heart emojis.) They say you save the best for last, but I don’t believe that. She isn’t the best. She’s the bestest. And she’s not the last…

When she applied to be a 2015 senior model, I didn’t know that her face would one of those that helped define me as a portrait photographer and bring out in myself a new confidence. And I would have only hoped her beautiful face would explode on the model scene! HELLO! IT DID! She has now been published not only senior blogs, but wedding blogs, tv shows, online shopping boutiques, you name it.

This is only her senior session…where she got to be herself in all her beautiful glory. I am so thankful you’re a part of my life, Syd! And please remember me when you’re famous!

She started my senior season last year. And I think of her often as the Class of 2015 is nearing the end…or is it the beginning? I could not have kicked off the Class of 2015 season or the first day of Summer  with anyone more perfect then Shelby. Congratulations sweet girl!

P.S. June is a fantastic month for portraits…the rich greens are gorgeous!

P.S.S. Jumpers are trendy and an awesome outfit option. Bellingham Photographer_0086

Not in any way surprised, I woke up to rain and wind on a cold March morning. I sighed and texted Brittany, “Oh no…what is this?!”

7:00am and there she was sitting in a makeup chair. There was no turning back now. ‘Welcome to the Pacific Northwest’ I thought as my mind was still trying to reconcile the random spontaneity of our weather up here. And then I received this gracious reply, “It’s ok! We trust you! We’re up for anything!”

What happened next was a morning that quickly turned into one of my favorite engagements yet. Sometimes when plans don’t go as planned, you make last minute new ones and they turn out even better.

I CANNOT wait for your August wedding, guys. Cannot wait. I am so looking forward to seeing you again!

{Big thanks to Eclipse Books in Fairhaven and Caffe Adagio for allowing us to hide away while the rain poured and the wind howled! It’s no secret that they’re my favorite coffee place in town.)

I always end up in a texting conversation with my seniors before I meet them. We usually message back and forth before we meet, or before they book, or sometimes they don’t book, and that’s ok, too! I met Tiana through text. And then officially at her friend Brittany’s session when we all had to get real comfortable with each other and up in Brittany’s business.:)

This girl is one of the most genuine peoples I have ever met. And she’s beautiful. She’s the real deal, my friends!

I remember three things about Same. 1) Her name was awesome. 2) She was straight forward with her texting and made sure she always got back to me, 3) she made me laugh almost every time she texted with her witty humor and sarcasm,  and 4) she’s just funny.

She’s relaxed and chill, yet beautiful. That’s how I’d describe her. Meet Sam Starr. The girl with the Hollywood name and the beautiful face.
