I specialize in timeless, fine art photography and my passion is combining traditional and lifestyle portraiture while photographing families, seniors, maternity and branding clients in Cle Elum, Washington and surrounding areas.
I am so glad that the Alfred family found me during their search for a Suncadia family photographer. Byron, Talia, and their four-year-old Giselle, live in Houston and came to Suncadia to rest, relax, rejuvenate. And, to update their family portraits! They were especially excited to capture their daughter Giselle, who is growing and changing by the day. Her bright and bubbly personality made this session so much fun!
It had been a busy year for the Alfreds in their personal injury practice, The Alfred Firm. So they were looking forward to time together as a family in Cle Elum.
Byron founded the firm in January of 2020, with Talia as Director of Operations. As a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer, Byron represents clients that have suffered catastrophic injuries and families of those that have suffered wrongful death in industrial work settings nationwide. Talia meanwhile ensures that the business runs smoothly and also juggles homeschooling Giselle. Talia was recently honored as one of the Top 30 Influential Women of Houston.
I met the Alfreds at their vacation rental, and from there we made our way to some of the most beautiful spots in Suncadia. It was important to capture the iconic mountain views, but above all I wanted to make sure that the entire family enjoyed the session. The day after their session I met with Byron and Talia to review their images. We worked together to decide how they wanted to display their artwork in their home. Ultimately they decided on a beautiful wall portrait, as well as a 12×12 Heirloom Album.
Talia said, “Over the past few years I have recognized how precious life is. It is so important to capture special moments because you will never be able to get them back. These tangible heirloom pieces of art hold priceless memories that will tell the story of our family legacy for generations to come.”.
