When I knew I was starting a new blog, I thought about who or what I wanted my very first post to be about, and I knew it had to be something special. I have traveled many places over the last several months, and I have met some amazing people; but one of my favorite is definitely Elizabeth from Elizabeth Marie Makeup! I had the pleasure of meeting her in Bellingham, Washington during a stylized wedding shoot I decided to have at the local park Whatcom Falls. She did an absolute fabulous job on the makeup, and I then was given the chance to photograph her and her gorgeous cousin Marlies visiting from Germany in all their beauty!

I had the privilege of frolicking with the two of them down by the Nooksack river which runs, would you guess is, behind their family dairy farm! Stretching back several generations, The Appel Farms provide high quality artisan cheese to surrounding community. Within 10 minutes with these two we had already trekked across a corn field, and saved a startled cow from well, itself. The whole portrait session was an absolute pleasure, and some of the scenic Washington views were to die for.

And these girls, they were easily some of the sweetest people I have ever met! If you're ever in Bellingham and need makeup or cheese or a smile, these are definitely the people you want to contact!
