I’m pretty excited to get back into pet photography- I mean, there’s not much more fun than spending your afternoon with a puppy. 🙂 A couple of weeks back I got the chance to meet Gatsby.  Gatsby is an adorably floppy 16 week old Rottweiler/Tasmanian Devil mix (OK, that may not be entirely accurate but based on our session I’m willing to accept the possibility) who was adopted by another wedding photographer friend of mine, the ever-charming Julia Kinnunen. Here’s a little more about this sweet boy:

Breed: I’m still fairly certain this kiddo has some Tasmanian devil in him, but officially he’s likely primarily Rottweiler.

Adopted from: Tall Tails Rescue

Favorite toy: his squeaky giraffe friend

Follow him on Instagram: @gatsby.the.great.rottie

OK, that’s enough reading.  I know you’re just here for the puppy… xx, Amy


I met Danya through a few past brides of mine. Her and her husband, Joe, wanted a session to document their sweet little girl’s almost 1 year birthday. Tuesday we were fortunate to get a nice, dry morning as we meet up at the Washington Park Arboretum for their session.  Now, you all know how much I love including pets in family photos, so I was overjoyed to know their pup would be joining us. Little did I know that this pup would be a completely joyous, tripod pit bull named Valentino. I mean, that face, right?!  Their daughter was a trooper (albeit with just a few crocodile tears) which allowed us some great family photos while she played with the flowers. Thank you for having me out to photograph your darling family Danya!!! xx, Amy

CityDog Cover shoot

Back in February I was fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph Drummer, the adorable winner of CityDog Magazine’s Spring Cover Model Search.  This kid was all energy and joy and such a fun pup to shoot.  Special thanks to Quynh with Pink & Posey for creating Drummer’s gorgeous floral collar!!  xx, Amy


Sunday we finally got some nice weather and I was delighted to meet up with Chelsea, Derek and their pup Zoe for a fun stroll around Seward Park in Seattle. I always seem to miss the cherry blossoms every year and was so happy that we had a few blooming around the lake. They always make everything feel so much more Spring-y. These two are getting married in just a little over a month at the lovely Mountain Springs Lodge in Leavenworth and I am already SO excited! Plus, today I learned that while their dog Zoe will be at the wedding as well, Chelsea will likely also be bringing her cat up to hang out while they’re getting ready; so obviously I’m now DOUBLY thrilled for the big day!! I hope this Spring weather sticks around and look forward to all the fun in Leavenworth!  xo, Amy


Well, as they say, better late than never! Carli and Tiffany were married in 2014 (2014!!!) and I embarrassingly just noticed that I never posted a blog for them, which I’m sure I was planning to do at the time before life got in the way. Two and half years late, but here we go! These lovely ladies got ready and had their first look at the Westin downtown. Carli had no idea that Tiffany had chosen to wear a dress for their ceremony and you can see the delight on Carli’s face; this is still one of my favorite first looks ever. The ceremony was held at a little park, just outside of the Fremont Public Library. Carli’s mother handmade dozens of adorable cushions to make the cement seating area more comfortable and guests quenched their thirst with mason jars of strawberry lemonade, each with its own custom tag representing parts of the couples’ life together. The ceremony was brief and tear-filled, after which everyone join together at El Camino for a super yummy Mexican dinner. After dinner, Carli helped Tiffany change into a stunning (and a bit more comforable) three-piece suit and they headed up to join their guests on the roof of their very own apartment building where everyone ate, drank, danced and partied until dark.  It was such a fun day, one that I still remember vividly nearly 3 years later. This beautiful couple has since moved to Bellingham, but I hope our paths cross again soon. xx, Amy
