What a delight to spend a beautiful sunny evening taking senior pictures for one of favorite people!  Ashley is now a grad from Sumner High School.  She is one of the kindest people I know, unbelievably smart and stunningly pretty!  What a combination!

We spent the day kicking around the Pt. Defiance which is such an awesome place for senior pictures.  It was a perfect match for Ashley and the clothes she chose!

Thank you Ashley for choosing me to capture your Senior Pictures!  It was pure joy!

I don’t know how I get so fortunate as to spend time with such unbelievably wonderful, kind, smart and gorgeous seniors girls!  Campbell falls under the category of the kind of girl you are beyond blessed to know and I am thankful she chose me to capture her senior images.

We were lucky to have a fantastically sunny day for her urban session in Downtown Tacoma.  The UW Tacoma campus is plentiful with shooting opportunities!  So many colors and textures!  We went everywhere from the UW Campus, the Museum of Glass to the Spanish Steps.

Sometimes everything just falls into place… an exceptionally beautiful High School Senior, gorgeous day and a wonderful location!  Alex is a senior from Sumner High School who I am blessed to know through volleyball!  She is amazingly talented, funny and as you can see in her images – gorgeous!  We chose to meet at Wright Park in Tacoma because it is a location that has it all.  We took advantage of the arboretum, water  and even the church across the street.

Alex has the perfect combination…  hello!  Brown hair and stunning blue eyes!  Pair that with her “laugh at any moment” personality (we all know she got that from her Mom, right)?  and her session was so much fun!  The hours flew by and we were done before we knew it.  I could take pictures of her all day long!  I’m so proud of Alex… she will be attending Gonzaga in the fall!  Way to go smart girl!

Thank you for choosing me as your Senior Photographer Alex… I know that you have many choices when choosing someone to take these important images.  I am always blessed when I get to spend time capturing this pivotal time.

I am now booking 2018 seniors.  If you are interested in booking a Senior Session please contact me as last year I completely sold out of sessions!

Living in the Pacific Northwest, we are blessed to be close to Pt Defiance and all the beauty it holds!   I grew up just a few miles from this wonderland so when seniors choose this location it really makes me very happy.  Pt Defiance offers a huge pond with bridges, the rose garden, and Owens Beach.  So many wonderful options for senior pictures!

I’ve known Abby for a few years and I’m so excited to be her Senior Photographer. She brightens up any room just by walking in with the warmth of her smile and the sparkle in her eyes! To say she is delightful would be an understatement.  Abby came to us from California, so adding the Owens Beach at Pt Defiance was an extra special touch!

The day of the shoot the sun was shining which was definitely fitting with Abby’s sunny personality!  We had such a fun time… and lots of laughter!  Thank you for choosing me for your senior pictures, it was truly a delight!

Summer is my busiest time of year … last year I was fully booked before the first week of August.  It’s important to book now if you would like a session!

As Senior Year starts rolling to a close… 2017 Seniors are feeling the need to capture the relationships that are the most important to them.  One of my favorite things at Dawne Carlisle Photography is to offer Friendship Sessions to show the love, laughter and joy so they can look back and always remember this pivotal time in their lives.

I got to spend time with Allison & Tyler at Pt. Defiance Park in Tacoma watching them laugh the afternoon away!  It was so fun to watch the happiness they share!
