COLLECT MOMENTS, NOT THINGS.

Me+Suki_WEB.png

Hi, I'm Missy. I am a natural light photographer based in Seattle, WA, but ready to travel the world for you. I have been specializing in portraits and weddings since 2012. My style is inspired by fashion and editorial photography. I just turned 33 and 2017 marks my mission to take amazing photos of my clients that make them feel beautiful no matter their gender, age, or size. I want you to look and feel as if you are the "it girl" or "it guy" in the magazines and show you how easy it is to do it. I encourage you and challenge you to join me on this mission by booking a session! Who doesn't want to feel their best and have it captured for all of time? Iโ€™m thrilled you stopped by my page and can't wait to work with you!

ENGAGEMENTS & WEDDINGS

I think everyone deserves to marry the person who is their everything.  The person who won't mind holding your cold hands.  Makes you laugh.  Will join in on your random bursts of song.  Runs errands with you just to spend time with you.  Isn't afraid to be themselves and let's you be yourself.  Will stand up for what you believe in and protect you. Makes you feel like royalty.  Will let you talk to them about anything.  Will be your best friend.  This type of connection is the most important connection you could have. Everything changed when I met my husband. He exceeds all of the above.  I am grateful for my connection with him and feel lucky every time I am given the opportunity to photograph the romantic and fun souls of two people who give each other something no one else can.

FAMILY PORTRAITS

Family - children - Maternity 

Whatever you are doing, stop for a moment.  You will never have this moment again and your family will never be this little again.  Our busy lives are focused much too often on planning for tomorrow and not enough on collecting the moments of today.  I believe that it's not what we have in life, but who we have that matters.  I am fortunate that I come from a family that understood the importance of documenting all of our milestones so we have something to look back on, cherish, and pass down as heirlooms for generations to come.  It makes me happy when I get to help my clients do the same.

SENIOR PORTRAITS

    If I could go back and tell the high school senior version of myself one thing, it would be to go after whatever it is you truly want to be in life and to not let anyone, especially yourself,  get in your way!  I knew in my senior year of high school that I wanted to be a photographer, but for some reason I felt I needed more time and experience in life before becoming a business entrepreneur.  Working with high school seniors is invigorating.  Their spirit and energy is a good reminder that the world offers endless possibilities and no time is better than now.  You can do whatever you want, and be whoever you want, if you set your heart and your mind to it.  I love that my high school senior sessions are fun, fresh and inspirational just like them.

THIS MAKES ME BLUSH...

"We want to scream from the mountain tops that the best decision we made for our wedding was hiring Missy as our photographer. She was easy to work with, personable, professional, and she blended in seamlessly with our family and guests. She used her incredible instincts to capture the real moments of our special day. We will be forever grateful. We would hire her again in a heartbeat!  " [Becky + Beth, married Jan 2016]
