Hello Friend


Nothing would make me happier than sitting cross-legged next to your sink, listening to 90's hip-hop, brushing your hair while helping you get ready every day.


Hi! My name is Haldis. MOM. NERD. PHOTOGRAPHER. I'm passionate about making pretty things and ...I'm great at what I do! Documenting life's little (and big) moments are what it's all about.


Pictures are memories. As a girl with not one..but two grandmas who struggled with memory loss, it's more important than ever that I document every little detail.

I want you to look back at the time we had together and remember every little detail. The smell of the trees, the way your partner looked at you, or that slight curl on the back of your baby's head.


Hopefully, you will have so much fun documenting the first journey you'll want me with you every step of the way. I hope we grow old together on a beautiful front porch in rocking chairs with my camera pointed at our basset hound.


Butternut Blonde is Pro-Diversity, Pro-Equality, Pro-Empowerment, and Pro-LOVE. We capture all shapes, sizes, and personalities.


Let's Do This!

This Is Us

Me and my husband, Reed on our wedding day in 2009. We married on Pi Day. In the small town of Snohomish at the Anthea ballroom. Surrounded by 75 of our closest family and friends. We asked the photographer to get images of our rings on Nintendo controllers, and I walked down the aisle to a Final Fantasy theme song. I will forever maintain that our anniversary date is in 2002 (our first date). SEVEN years before this photo was taken.


My Dragons

Then came the babies. Gunnar and Josafina (Fina). Yes, they are full of fire and just as spicy as their mama. Thankfully, Dragons LOVE Tacos
