I've been MIA the past few weeks working long weeks at the hospital and completing some huge orders (pictures coming soon)... but I'm back and here's a throwback to a cute planter from Mother's Day!! 🌸🌼
My name is Jill & I’m addicted to Farmers Markets. 🙋🏼♀️ I can’t help it!
Give me all the fresh flowers, baked goods & all that glorious produce!
We’ll be at the @kendall_yards_night_market this evening. Who else is going?! 🎉
Sometimes, it’s just pure magic. That was Saturday’s wedding in #indexwashington . Holy crap. This tiny little town nestled into the foothills of the #cascademountains is beyond beautiful. It’s breathtaking, and so are @shakanna_illi and @cookingintandem. Shakanna grew up just down the road from where we took this photo. Can you imagine waking up every morning to THIS in your backyard?! Wow. All i know is I need to shoot more #weddings in #westernwashington !! So now I’m curious... If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Congratulations Sara and Luke! Very very classy.
These two shared their vows in front of an intimate audience of under 20 family and friends. They elenrated into the evening despite the cool May air and unpredictable weather.
As thankful as we are for all of the amazing new followers - or as we like to say, friends - we wanted you to know that your worth is not found in IG & it’s crazy algorithm.
You are amazing.
Be blessed on this lovely Sunday. Surround yourself with positive affirmation and positive vibes. 🍊✌🏻
These two came down from Vancouver BC for a short visit. What Joti didn’t know is that Paul was planning on proposing. Paul contacted me a week before to help him make a plan for capturing it on video and stills. I’m happy to say she said “yes” and we had a little photo shoot right afterwords.
Who knew looking at 100’s of photos of cute little Clementines would be our life as of late. 🍊
We are loving the process of creating something new to inspire and give back to this beautiful community. 🧡
If you haven’t already, go and follow our new adventure @eternalsunshinephotobus! She’s a ‘69 VW Bus slowly transforming into a photo booth bus! 🎉
Our new branding will be bright, fun & make it feel like summer in the pnw year round! ✌🏻
You know what’s funny?
Before vacation, I always do SO MUCH LAUNDRY & I pack #allthethings - then I end up wearing the same 3 things & have a massive bag I packed & have to lug around.
You’d think by 35 I’d learn my lesson, but, no. Here I am today. Doing massive amounts of laundry & again packing all the things because I don’t know what crazy elements we’ll face or if we’ll be randomly invited to a gala?!? Please tell me I’m not alone.
Or do, and maybe that’ll help me unpack some crazy things I have in this bag!
I mean, I’d like to say I’m posting this as a sweet little reminder for you, but really this is all for me.
Ugh, sometimes life feels like you’re being tossed around and around and around like a Bounce Fabric Softener Ball in the dryer.
Other times I’m like “Yes! This is amazing! Full steam ahead with #allthethings !” Then there’s today.
Where I just F E E L where I am.
Like, here I am, Lord.
Just standing here.
What’s really next for me?
Then I hear a kind voice in my heart tell me, “ You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.” In this small moment of time I take that voice and let it sink in & simply say - okay.

“Let’s get together yeah, yeah, yeah! Why don’t you and I combine?!” If you get that quote, we are soul mates and you’re welcome for finding your soul mate.
If you don’t get that quote, it’s okay, we can still be friends. It’s not you, it’s me.
If YOU’RE still around after my crazy babble - then LET’S COLLAB!! We’re looking for hair stylists, make up artists, jewelry designers, clothing designers, florists & some super chill people who love to model and get to know other super chill people!
We have some sweet session ideas with Miss Clementine, so let me know if you’re interested in being part of our team! ✌🏻
You know what’s super important?
GREAT. FEMALE. FRIENDS.
Like, I am just SO overwhelmingly thankful for them.
Now, I don’t have a ton, I’m super transparent about my issues with women and getting close to them.
But, you know what?
Sometimes it takes culling and pruning relationships in your life to get down to the ones who will add value to your life. Keeping the ones who will bring joy to your soul. Also keeping the ones who will let you know when you’re being a jerk & stand with you to help you not be a jerk.
You also need friendships that will be so dumb with you that you make up 90’s dance routines to @mandymooremm songs. So, there’s that.
Happy Saturday, friends.
Tag someone who helps make your soul happy! 💛
Engagement and wedding photos... that’s usually the route people take. Have you considered proposal photos? A beautiful photo of the moment it all begins... a totally genuine, uncontrived moment of expression.
Oh Friday, let me hug you!
I have a few more emails to punch out & then I’m taking an early release from work to enjoy a sunny, friend filled, flower filled & wine filled Mothers Day Weekend!
Tell me your favorite flower!
I love be some ranunculus & peonies.
