This was my favorite senior session EVER. The morning of the session I woke up and looked out my window and sighed at the dense clouds, rattling window, and the constant downpour of raindrops. To my absolute delight, however, Troy agreed to go puddle jump with me and brave the Seattle elements for his senior portraits. We had such a blast running around downtown, freezing to death and laughing the whole time. I should have known better than to worry about our shoot being canceled, Troy is a fellow Alaskan. In fact after graduation he is heading back up there to work in Skagway. I am so excited to follow his adventure.

Much Love, Kiana M.












I met beautiful Jennifer at a concert in California which she attended with a friend of mine. We danced and had a wonderful time and I found out that she attends the University of Washington in Seattle. I was so excited to know someone in the city because although I wen’t to high school here my friends have all spread across the country. Jennifer asked me to photograph her to build her modeling portfolio and the following is the result of a great day downtown.

During my three years at Brooks Institute of Photography I was lucky enough to model for my friends. I am so grateful to have those pictures from my college years and know I will treasure them forever. I am so glad to do such a fun shoot with Jennifer at such a special time in her life.

Jennifer has the sweetest heart and is obviously gorgeous. I am so envious of her impressive shoe collection and so glad to have made a new friend.

Much Love, Kiana M.








Logan’s a Senior

This is Logan: computer guy, volunteer, football player, and senior. I was listening to him tell me about his life during this session and I was struck by the thought that being a senior in high school is one of those monumental momments in one’s life that truly deserves to be celebrated. It is a time of great change, decision making, self discovery and excitement.
Logan is certainly on the brink of doing wonderful things and it was such a treat to hear him talk about his aspirations and to be able to document this time of his life. These are a few of the shots from his senior session.

Much Love, Kiana M.

My Dad

This year I was lucky enough to be home for Father’s Day. We spent the day playing basketball (his favorite thing to do) and watching golf (Tiger lost! Always a good day in our family) It was wonderful. When anyone says I am like my dad I swell up with pride. I have always admired his strength, his ability to talk to anyone like he has known them for years, his confidence, his work ethic, his sense of humor, and his big heart. I love him to pieces <3

This is Sara. 😀


I absolutely adore photographing the fairer sex. Women each have such a unique wonderfulness about them and I truly believe that our femininity and special beauty should be celebrated.

Michelle is so utterly beautiful both inside and out. She is one of those women that you feel drawn too…she has a big personality, a big smile, and big hugs. I photographed her under some breathtaking trees in San Louis Obispo, California where she goes to school. I had such a blast and came away with some images that I found to be absolutely lovely. 🙂
