The love that these families have for one another is contagious.  If you haven't already, you will fall in love with this couple as you see Rafik look at his new bride in admiration.  You can feel the love and emotion watching Anna and Reza give away their baby girl.  You will wish you had Reza as a father watching him dance and entertain guests at every turn...SO MUCH FUN.  Rafik is the "Aladdin" Arianna was waiting for, and this fairy tale is far from over <3 

Thank you for sharing this day with me!

Ceremony - St. Mary's Cathedral

Reception - University of Portland

Flowers - I'll find out who did these amazing flowers...

Make-A-Wish - Tonkin Golf Tournament 2016 | SW Washington Photographer http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/9/-make-a-wish/tonkin-golf-tournament-2016-sw-washington-photographer This year the Ron Tonkin golf tournament at Lewis River raised $42,819.93 for Make-A-Wish Oregon.  Almost 40 golf teams teed off in a scramble, bought mulligans, raffle tickets and met a sweet girl named Katie who shared her story with them.  For her wish, she took her family to Hawaii and swam with dolphins.  Thanks to Make-A-Wish Oregon, they were able to fulfill her wish along with many others.  Tournaments like these help the foundation tremendously and provide multiple kids with their wishes.  

Here's a recap of the day, thanks for stopping by:

{ Bird - Davis } Washington Wedding | SW Washington Lifestyle Photographer http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/9/-bird---davis-washington-wedding-sw-washington-lifestyle-photographer I knew I liked this couple from the moment I met them, but had no idea how much!  Darcie's amazing taste and attention to detail made for a gorgeous setting.  Their laid-back attitude set the stage for a day without stress.  Then to top it off, the families of Darcie and Scott just melted my heart.  Darcie's niece requested a song for the DJ, so she could dance with her father, meanwhile, Darcie's other brother grabbed their mom to dance along with.  It was such a touching moment to end the perfect day.  The happiness and excitement is felt in the photos, it is hard not to smile along with them.

{ Wedding of Linda & Beverly } | SW Washington Photographer http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/02/14/2015-same-sex-wedding-washington-photographer My aunt Linda is one of the most genuine people on the planet.  Kind, honest, giving; she is the type of person who would give you the shirt off of her own back if you needed one, without a doubt in her mind.  Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who take advantage and abuse kind-hearted souls, like her.  However, she recently found someone who loved her and shared her laughter, joy, and friendship...a partner who was equal, not someone to take and take and take.  I am SO happy for my aunt.  When she told me she was going to marry the love of her life, Bev, on Valentine's Day in Kauai, I was ecstatic.  

My mom and I flew down to be with them on their big day and were lucky enough to stay with them for a few additional days.  Below are some photos of our trip.  I took some of them getting ready and a couple of the days afterward.  The ceremony photos are all by a Hawaiian photographer named Pake Salmon; www.pakesalmon.com (who, by the way, is one of the coolest people I've EVER met).  She and her girlfriend, Jessica and cousin Mana took us to a Hawaiian Luau and were nice enough to spend a couple days with us.  We had a blast with them!  

Here is an album I put together for them, thanks for stopping by!

Josh and Courtney are both remarkable people.  They are smart, kind, have incredible values and morals, they are just all around great people.  I am so lucky to know them on a personal level and was thrilled when they wanted me to be involved in their big day.  Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Cook, I am so happy for you both!

Love radiates from Lynn & Max.  Being in their presence alone, you can feel how much they adore and care for one another.  I am so lucky to be the one to show you.  You will feel it too!  Ah, and the moments with Lynn and her mom, Cheron...They make me tear up every time!  Thanks for stopping by, here are some highlights from their big day:

{ Leighton } Lifestyle Newborn Session | SW Washington Photographer http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/4/-leighton-lifestyle-newborn-session-sw-washington-photographer This beautiful couple contacted me about maternity and newborn photos and it turned out we have a handful of friends in common which was really neat...all non-related to each other!  They have been together since high school!  They're such a sweet couple and they genuinely enjoy each other, which I love to see!  We took their maternity photos on a gorgeous day and just a couple weeks later, Ashlee and Trask gave birth to their beautiful, healthy baby girl (3 weeks early!)  She was ready to see the world :-)  And we did a lifestyle shoot in their home for the newborn photos, so intimate and comfortable for their precious new addition.

Here are highlights from both sessions;

Little Samantha was such a sweetheart!  She decided to be a tough cookie and fight all sorts of sleep methods, but she caved in the end ;-)  She is such a sweet little girl, very curious about me hovering over her...she kept her eyes on me at all times!  I had so much fun with this adorable little family and was so happy to be a part of such a wonderful gift.

Caroline, was just an angel, an absolute sweetheart.  Who, by the way, looks like the feminine version of Timothy...their baby photos will be hard to tell apart!  This is quite the special little family and I had so much fun with them during this session.  I am so lucky to be a part of these moments.

Project 365 | February 2015 http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/project-365-february-2015 Alright, one month down!  Woooo!

 

So, I noticed a lack of color in my January photos, so for the first week of February, I'm focusing on color, only...need a little in your life?  I sure do :-)

 

Red

02-01-201502-01-2015

Green

02-04-201502-04-2015

Blue

The little guy who wears these went to the ER for the whole day today...SCARIEST day of my life.  106 fever, limp little body (until I put him in the bathtub to bring his temp down...then he started screaming and shaking).  Luckily, my oldest is a great listener and great big helper, I got him to the ER pretty quickly.  They drew blood, gave him an IV, did a chest x-ray, suctioned urine out....needless to say, it was a horribly traumatic day for him....and me, and brother and dad!  

02-05-201502-05-2015

Purple

It was a scary couple days having the little one at the ER and not drinking, so my photos were put on the back burner. ;-/  But this little purple snack that my great friend brought him were some of the only things he would even try....for days

02-06-201502-06-2015

Low on inspiration, sleep and energy...high on anxiety, heavy heart....

So, this sweet little angel was "thinking" and it just warmed my heart with his beautiful long lashes and adorable little face...I adore him

02-07-201502-07-2015

With all the stress going on in the household, Jackson asked if he could "rest" in my bed for nap time with me.  (Even though, in the photo, he is watching something on the iPad).  

02-08-201502-08-2015

Somebody has their energy back!  Chase is starting to be himself again, playing, running, squealing, tackling brother, hugging Grady....nothing better in my eyes!

02-09-201502-09-2015

"MOOOOOMMM!!!!!  MOM, mom!  Come find me!" 02-10-201502-10-2015

Chase is REALLY into animals right now, so we ventured to the zoo!  It was so much fun to hear Chase making all the animals noises!  <3

02-11-201502-11-2015

I am leaving tomorrow morning to go to Hawaii....without my family!  :-O  I can hardly believe it!  I didn't think I was going to be able to go, but a close family friend volunteered to watch my kiddos :-D  Now I get to see my aunt marry the woman she loves dearly.  I couldn't be happier!

Project 365 | January 2015 http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/1/-project-365 I've committed myself, project 365, here I come.  A photo a day for a whole year.  The idea behind it for me is to get in the habit of pulling my camera out when I see something I want to photograph, but never do (for this reason or that).  I know it will be hard, but I'm excited to challenge myself.  I have lenses I'd like to better learn, and am excited to force myself to use them! 

My kids won't be this young forever and while they hate getting their photo taken, (you'll probably see a lot from behind), it is important for me to document these days.  The only way to relive these moments for me, is to have them in photographs.  I love lifestyle photography (documentary style with some direction, but real moments & real emotions), that is my passion and what I've set out to become better at

I have some goals and themes I'd like to accomplish with this project, but mainly for me, it is documenting our life how we're living it.  Trips to see grandma & grandpa, the seasons changing, playing new games...the simple day-to-day joys.  While I'll be bettering myself as a lifestyle photographer, I'm able to notice moments I want to capture, and using unique points of view while getting simple everyday nuances on camera.

Let's do this!  

 

Week 1

Jackson trying out his new robe after bath time

01-01-2015bw01-01-2015Jackson trying out his new robe from Santa

Chase so desperately wanting to get into our bedroom

01-02-201501-02-2015Not quite there yet ;-)

Squishy buns....I just love those cheeks :-)

01-03-201501-03-2015Squishy

Rainy day in the PNW and I was having a hard time with creativity...so I ventured outdoors at nap time.

01-04-2014 Mossy Rain01-04-2014 Mossy Rain

Grady keeping watch...or just barking at anything that moves....including leaves in the wind >:{

01-06-1501-06-15

That empty bullet, yeah it hit me right in the face.  

01-06-1501-06-15

This was Chase's first time in rain boots!  He looked adorable, but had a really hard time walking.  He stayed close to daddy and "helped"

01-07-1501-07-15

Week 2

 

Do you know what this is?  Another lull day, I was at my parents on the floor playing with Chase, thinking of what to shoot as the night kept getting later

01-08-1501-08-15

The sunsetting right out my front door

01-09-1501-09-15

The fun thing about living in the forest, is all of the neat vegetation...and mushrooms!  

01-10-1501-10-15

I wanted to capture the feel of Winter...

01-11-1501-11-15

I love tiny details, and I LOVE my boys' lashes!

01-12-1501-12-15

"Just one game of Gold Fish before bed, K?"  One of Jackson's favorite games right now

01-13-1501-13-15

Happy Birthday dada!  Jackson was in charge of picking out the cake :-D

01-14-201501-14-2015

 

Week 3

Jackson asked to nap with me, he cuddled with Grady the whole time.  I love sleeping babies

01-15-201501-15-2015

Chase thought these gloves he got were just hilarious, he had a lot of fun with grandma.

01-16-201501-16-2015

Chase adores Grady, so so much.  He hugs him every opportunity he gets...and even tries to ride him on occasion.

01-17-201501-17-2015

Another rainy day in the PNW...but we've been cooped up too long, the boys are restless...so, pulled out some washi tape and made a hopscotch board.  Got a little bit of energy out, not enough though.  sigh

01-18-201501-18-2015

The sun is shining!  And I noticed a few days ago my crocus bulbs were coming up!  It's early yet, but it made me happy!

01-19-201501-19-2015

Well, hello there shadow!  Chase's first time noticing his shadow

01-20-201501-20-2015

Chase thinks this baseball glove chair is the best thing ever made, he hangs out up there a lot of the day

 

Week 4

Chase loves his big brother.

01-22-201501-22-2015

I hadn't been feeling good and as soon as the kids went to bed, I did too....about 10 pm, I asked my hubby to get my camera, come hell or high water, I'm not missing a day!  This is on my nightstand, 3 inches from me...but it's my favorite necklace and my photo notebook, so it worked out

01-23-201501-23-2015

Morning walk at the park.  I've always wanted a photo of this tree...it's just a nice tree ;-)

01-24-201501-24-2015

As I'm lying in the middle of the road, my parents drive up, "what in the world are you doing?" 

"Oh just getting my daily photo...I thought the fog was neat...."

01-25-201501-25-2015

Little hands, but a BIG imagination 01-26-201501-26-2015

On our way up to the Great Wolf Lodge, we stopped for lunch and this neat building was across the street, so I grabbed an iPhone pic 

01-27-201501-27-2015

We just got home from our quick trip and Grady is thrilled we're home!

01-28-201501-28-2015

Week 5

One of Jackson's favorite pastimes is coloring....I could stack his drawings to the ceiling

01-29-201501-29-2015

I've been loving these foggy mornings...I'd prefer sunshine, but fog is fun too ;-)

01-30-201501-30-2015

I want to get better with my Lensbaby lens, it has such a neat effect...you just need simple subjects

12/16/2014 Newborn - Vivian | Lifestyle Photographer in SW Washington http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/12/-12/16/2014---newborn-vivian What do you do with a baby who won't sleep?  Well, you hang out with your friend, talk about how having a baby is life-changing, and snap a few photos here and there :-)  

Not my typical newborn shoot, but I was kidless for a few hours and spending time with one of my best friends, so it was AMAZING!  

Love these girls!

{ 12/02/2014 - Family Session | Thoma } http://carinoltephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/12/-12/02/2014---family-session-thoma Christmas tree farms can be such a fun setting for winter photos, it usually gets kids excited, too!  Except in this case....Mr. Sully he was not in the mood for photos, or for laughing or even smiling.  It was quiet the opposite, actually, he gave me the stink-eye for nearly the entire time!  LOL!  I love that kid.
