The Stibich Family | the many faces of Sage

One of the things I love about photographing people, families, weddings, is being invited to follow individuals along their journey of life. I was super stoked to photograph Allie & Paul's wedding on the island of Lanai a couple of years ago. And when they found out I had moved to Washington, and lived just over an hour from them, they asked me to photograph them again, with the addition of Sage their son. The loveliness of these three is apparent in the light that shone through the clouds, breaking the rain and wind that is Washington winters.

And every time I get to photograph people, I feel like we shared an experience that bonds you together for a very short time, maybe even just a few moments, but it feels very real to me. And I love it. By the end of this session, Sage was blowing me kisses and giving me hugs, solidifying that these moments are real.
