Hi! I’m Patti of Patti-Cakes Photography. California born, Alaska raised, and living in the wet PNW, Puyallup, Washington.
I am a mom to 4 beautiful kids, wife to my best friend, and dog mom to two sweet little dogs. I have been a hobbyist photographer for as long I can remember. My interest started in the 5th grade, when I was gifted my first 35 mm film camera, I have been hooked ever since! I never thought of turning photography into a career for myself until I became pregnant with my fourth child almost 5 years ago. It was at that point that I realized she may be my last, and I was missing all the good stuff at home while heading to my 9-5 job, with my daily 2 plus hour commute into the city. I decided to start investing my time, money, and efforts into being able to pursue the things that make me happy, my Family and my Photography! I look forward to the day I can say goodbye to the desk I’ve sat at for the last 12 years, and say “Hello” to my kids every morning and my clients during the day. I look forward to having a batch of cookies in the oven while editing all your gorgeous photos!
I would love to meet you, and capture life's biggest moments and milestones for you. I have been told to be successful in this business, that I need to focus on one specialty and master it. But I love all life's moments. I love being able to grow with your families. If that means starting with your Senior photos, Engagements, Weddings, Pregnancies, Babies, etc.....I want to be a part of it ALL! Don't be afraid to ask if I photograph certain things, the answer will likely be yes! I look forward to building a relationship with you and your family, and I hope that you continue to grow with me!
