Ivy | Glamour & Boudoir Photo Shoot

Ivy traveled to Seattle from Iowa for her glamour & boudoir photo shoot. She and her husband made a long weekend out of it and they explored the city, just the two of them, before heading home to begin a long road trip across the country with their four children.

I love that Ivy took a day to pamper herself with a makeover and photo shoot. It is so important to treat ourselves to something special, to rejuvenate, and to feel beautiful. Not to mention, she now has gorgeous photos of herself that she and her children and husband love.

The second I met Ivy I knew that we would end up becoming friends. She is sweet and funny and she doesn’t take things too seriously. I have to say that I’m bummed she lives in Iowa!

I asked Ivy to write a list of 10 things we might not know about her. She gave me 12, which made me laugh because I tried narrowing down my own list of things about me on my website and I couldn’t get it less than 14 — I’m glad I’m not the only one!

One thing she didn’t mention in her list is that she is an amazing photographer in Iowa! You can check out her work here.

10 Things You Might Not Know About Ivy

1. For as much as I talk and enjoy being around people and eating up positive attention, I’m actually quite shy and filled with insecurities that try to keep me down. Never the less, I push through–I don’t want to miss a thing–lifetimes are too short and pushing aside fear reveals some of the greatest adventures!

2. I love crispy bacon but I don’t eat it as often as I should;-)I also love pens and parchment and anything in an office supply store, coffee, puppies and the smell of babies. In fact my “love” list is long because I’m truly a lover of life.

3. My mom passed away 3 years ago from cancer. She was just 59 years old, way too young to leave this earth. She was vibrant and so full of life. Everyone loved her. A piece of me is forever gone now too and learning to stay true to myself without that piece has been a challenge.

4. I sleep with a woobie– that’s what my husband calls it. I just need extra covers and my soft blanket fits the bill.

5. I also pull a swath of hair over my ear before going to sleep– cause you know– SpIdErS

6. I have lists for my lists and then back up lists too all on paper of course {none of those lost forgotten-because-I-can’t-see-them lists on a techy device for me}

7. I met my husband at the beginning of my freshman year of college. We’ve been together ever since (22 years!) He truly is my everything

8. I have 4 children. That statement sounds trivial but I assure you there is nothing trivial about being a parent! We are making 3 great husbands and one smart and beautiful young lady who will stay locked in a tower if her daddy has anything to do with it;-) {I’m sure to get an eye-roll when she sees I said “daddy”, teenagers!}

9. Toads make me nauseated, just thinking about them and all those bumps– gag-*shiver*-ick!

10. When I was younger and we were watching Doogie Howser there was an episode where the captain of the football team beats Doogie up and then goes to his hospital and asks him to help him with his premature ejaculation problem.  I almost died in front of my parents, they couldn’t stop laughing and discovered in the retelling that I cringed each time they said those two words. I will never forget the torment.

11. MMMmmm, the smell of bookstores is so yummy and holding hard cover books while devouring the story is my favorite– the books are like trophies on my shelf, I’m afraid that some day bookstores and new books will all be gone and it will just be electronic virtual shops, that is really sad to me and I hope with fingers crossed and eyes squinted shut tight that it doesn’t happen.
12. I love hot romance novels and listen to them continuously while doing mindless chores or while driving– it’s why the bookstores are dwindling, I’m contributing to the sadness!

Ivy - Thank you, thank you, thank you. I feel special all over again!

You are a light that everyone should see. Truly a good friend to all that know you.

I may need to head up to Michigan when you come this way!!

Dale Hartshorn - I thought that it was Amber who didn’t like to hear about premature ejaculation. I do remember being “tormented” by the two of you when you ratted my hair and put in about 20 or so barrettes.

Lisa - Simply beautiful, Ivy. Inside and Out.

Stephanie & Pete | Seattle Engagement Photo Shoot

Seattle Wedding Photographer

We had the loveliest day for Stephanie & Pete’s engagement photo shoot. Going to Discovery Park was one of the things on their “Seattle Bucket List” and I was so happy they were able to see it in all of it’s sunny glory. Stephanie and Pete have a bucket list of things they want to do in the Seattle area because Pete is a West Point graduated in the Army and he is going to find out soon where they will need to move to follow his military career. So, they have lots of things they want to do in Washington before they make their big move!

We came across these gorgeous wildflowers and I pretty much died and went to heaven.
