Abe Family // Gold Creek

Fall is quickly approaching, so I was happy to get this adorable family in front of my camera for their annual photo session before summer ended! I’ve been photographing the Abe family for the last 3 years, and every year they give me the creative freedom to take them somewhere new and beautiful! This year we spent the early morning in the fog (with a mixture of wildfire smoke) up at Snoqualmie Pass and created some really fun memories together!

A quick backstory to how I know Jehna (the gorgeous mom you see in these photos!) …we grew up on the same block in a south Seattle neighborhood up until I moved to Cle Elum in the 3rd grade! We didn’t keep in touch after I moved, but 3 years ago she messaged me on Facebook (since seeing I had photographed a friend of hers) and said that I reminded her of a childhood friend and asked if I happen to be the same Mary who packed her little red Radio Flyer Wagon up with bags of clothes and “ran away” to her house! The internet sure does make the world feel small - right?!

SO grateful to have reconnected with this wonderful woman as adults now and see how different our lives have become since running around the block, jumping on their trampoline, and me playing “hair stylist” on her bangs back in the day ;) (sorry Jehna’s mom!!!)
