Next stop on this year's National Park tour [see the previous stop at Glacier] headed north and over the border into Canada at Jasper National Park. Jasper is a far more rugged and less built up park compared to its US counterparts and we had a great time camping, seeing some moose, and exploring glaciers. I think the most fun we had in the park however was a completely random hike out to the Hilda Glacier which isn't a really well known trail in the area. To be honest, I thought we were going out to the Saskatchewan Glacier which is a bit more down the road, but once we got going it turned out to be amazing!

Tucked away in Langley, WA is a gorgeous little dirt road which weaves through a forest and leads down to a quaint little house, weathered barn, and expansive fields as far as the eye could see.

Tanya and I had the pleasure of photographing the Masaniai family out at their Whidbey Island home this summer and it was easily one of my all time favorite family photography sessions.

Mildred and Kris, whom I've photographed a few times now were on a travel kick earlier this year and low and behold- they were coming up to Seattle from Southern California! Being photo nerds themselves they wanted to document their little mini-vacation to the city and take in some of the fun sights. It was a bit of a cold day, so we bundled up and hit the hotspots.

It's been a really long time since I've been to Glacier National Park, 9 years in fact! Now that I live in the Pacific Northwest though, I really have no excuse. It's a day's drive away now so I hope to get out there at least once a year. It's worth it. This time around I had my friend Nick with me for the big adventure and Glacier was just the start! This year's trip was to go from Seattle to Glacier, then up into Canada and explore a little of Banff and Jasper National Parks before looping back home. Lots of driving and lots of amazing sights to be seen!
