"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

Each story I tell through photography is genuine and unique: it is YOUR story. I am infinitely drawn to the bonds between you and your loved ones, and simply put, it’s the raw emotions and in-between moments that set my soul on fire. Butterfly kisses, tiny hands twisting through your hair, shy smiles and big gappy grins, twirling, giggling, snuggling up in the warm golden sunlight…

I create visual art for the families that want their story to be told. I want to capture a small piece of your life as it is right now, authentically, and document it in a way that when you look back at your photos, you’ll hear their laughter, feel their hugs, and you’ll experience the moment all over again.

All of my sessions take place outdoors or in your home and in natural light. Because I am so inspired by our gorgeous surroundings right before sunset, I will often choose later afternoons for our sessions to take advantage of the amazing golden light.

Moss & Mint Photography is located in Gig Harbor, WA and provides service to surrounding areas of Tacoma, Puyallup, Port Orchard, Silverdale, and adventure sessions all throughout the PNW.

Kind Words

“Cheri was incredible from start to finish. We were so nervous because we feel like we are an awkward family and didn’t know how to pose/move, but she was the perfect amount of professional and relaxed and completely put us at ease. Trevor even said he had a great time, which is huge! When we got our photos, I cried! I couldn’t believe how she captured everything and more of my family and they look amazing. I still can’t stop looking at them, and I am so grateful.”
