Rikki Rivera | Photographer » Wedding & Portrait Photography

Say hello again to the Tudor family! I first met them when Kanaan was 6 months old. They are a genuinely sweet family, and I am honored to have come back to photograph their growing family.

Kanaan is looking just like dad these days ;).

The holidays are such a fun time to capture a family. The warmth and kindness encompassing this season is ever evolving and shared from one friendly face to the next. Even little Kanaan was most intrigued by me!


Congratulations Tudor family! It was so great to see you again, and to announce this most special occasion for you three (soon-to-be four)! From our home to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas! Thank you for having me apart of your lives!

Sweet Damien and his big sister hung out with me for the afternoon, amidst a winter snow and ice storm. It was crazy weather, but you wouldn’t guess it by how cozy and peaceful this little guy was. I could have snuggled him all day long!

Congratulations mom and dad! Thank you for trusting me to capture your little one, I wish you the very best!

Amy and I braved the bitter cold for a few professional headshot portraits for her law firm’s website. So yeah, this gorgeous gal is a lawyer.

I had to leave out most all creative elements I would traditionally pursue, so we talked and laughed behind the scenes, and captured a wide variety of images for her to use over time as she progresses in her career.

It’s not every day you meet someone for the first time and instantly ‘click.’ But that’s just what happened with Amy and I. It was so great venturing through Tacoma and Olympia and chatting away, learning so many common traits between us! We’re already planning a Seattle date!


Amy was sworn in here, the building just across from the state capital, so it was pretty significant to get photos of her in front of it!

I loved spending a morning walking around town, chatting and shooting, then ending with this great view of the city. I look forward to next time!
