Happy Fall everyone! It’s my favorite session time of the year and everything pumpkin spice. It’s also our anniversary this weekend. So it really is a special time of the year for me.
This session has extra special meaning for me because this is my sister. We have the age gap of 23 years, so as you could image, she’s like my own. We share a special bond. So collaborating ideas and the session was the easy part. Editing and staring at this beauty was so surreal and emotional. How did the time go so fast? I kept remembering myself at this age and how difficult those few teenage years were for me. But then you come out of it stronger, brighter, more determined to set goals and squash them.
You can do anything right now. Carry that heart on your sleeve proud and the lives you touch will forever be grateful.
The bombs represented power, strength, and passion.
Thank you for being true to yourself. I’ve learned a lot and kept thinking what would I tell my seventeen year old self. I always wanted to please everyone and still do, but I’ve learned that you have to take care of yourself too. It’s ok to say no. Keep swimming with your head up. Attitude is gold. That with your faith you’ve got this thing called life. When you stumble refocus. Stand up again and fight. Pray everyday. Ok enough of me ranting.
And now for my favorites.
After a few private sessions I have one I can share. If you are ever wondering about keeping your session private please ask. I have password protection and can skip the social media and blogging-no problemo!
Look who has turned two! My little doll faced client and friend. She has a adorably expressive personality with loads of energy. I was tired, but I did manage to wear her out enough for a nap afterwards. Which made her parents very happy and they followed suit and joined her.
I loved meeting their new little kitty who loved the balloons. He was so sweet and snuggly. And dad joined in the session today. What’s sweeter than little girls and their daddies?!
Here are the highlights. I wish I could share every image. I just loved them all.
Can you even stand how adorable this family is! I am so happy they came to me for there portraits. They are some more out-of-towners visiting family and scheduled a shoot. I photographed the mom some years back before marriage and her adorable baby girl came along.
They brought along the adorable props. The childhood heirloom chair, the giant pink balloon~I’m obsessed. I think the 8-12 months age is just heaven. They can’t run from me yet! Everything that comes in their path is amazement and wonder. I wish I could share the entire session!
*But here are my absolute favorites*
I’m excited to share this gorgeous event that was filled with love and laughter, warm hearts, generous gifts, and mouth watering taco truck food. This location was at a private home that was remodeled recently with exquisite taste. Her views are stunning! I was referred by a previous client. Thank you so much Heidi for the recommendation. (Her wedding to quickly approaching.)
Zach and Darcy don’t live here in Seattle so the family had a celebration for them and their engagement. So this summer they will say their “I dos” in a different state. They are adorable. And I really enjoyed meeting all these great people. Thank you Laurie for your hospitality and kindness.
I hope you guys enjoy my view of the party.
I was able to photograph this sweetheart thanks to an online referral on a Facebook discussion board for Bellevue. I have no idea who that was, but I am so thankful. I really want to thank all my clients for all their referrals. You guys are so appreciated!! I feel like it’s the absolute best way to find the best clients.
I adore these three. Emma was such a sleepy dream. I love those wrinkled elbows and shoulders. LOVE them! I am really able to get my baby fix with these little tiny humans. The little cries and facial expressions are so sweet. I miss that. So I hope this gives you guys that little “baby fix” as well.
This family introduced me to this awesome park in North Seattle. It has a beautiful beach with acres to explore and the trains pass through every hour. So the kids were mesmerized. We hiked a little of the trails during our session. I can’t wait to go back and adventure further up. We also saw the bubble man getting ready for a show. So much fun will be had here at Carkeek Park.
What a wonderful family! I can tell the outdoors are their place of choice. We found lots of creatures and interesting rocks, moss, leaves, bridges, and watched the mass of sailboats. My kind of morning!
Here are some of my highlights in the glorious, sunny, Seattle day.
Welcome to the world this sweet beautiful baby boy. He’s a dream. He smiled, he snuggled, he slept so soundly, and he was just too precious. It was a glorious sunny day in the pacific northwest. We went outside for some family photos and decided to do some of his portraits outside in the sun. He loved it and the doggies were digging’ in also.
This was our second session. In case any expecting mamas are wondering about sessions, I highly recommend the nesting package so you can have me capture your maternity and the newborn images. Ask me about it!
What a pleasure to work with this adorable family! Here are some of my highlights from the session. <3
Happy Spring everyone! This is the second time I’ve been able to plan a shoot at the exquisite cherry blossoms in full bloom at the university. Although, it felt like a million people around it was worth the commotion for the beautiful surroundings.
The day didn’t quite start off that great. My husband had sprained his ankle and had to go to an urgent care clinic. Thank goodness I can call my mom to save the day. She watched the kids and my crippled hubby on crutches while I headed out. Mom….I owe you one!!
Driving to Seattle I was able to refocus and relax while walking to meet my clients. This session was a combination of an engagement, family, and head shots. I look forward now to the wedding in the fall at the Hollywood Schoolhouse. I know they will be making each other laugh and enjoying every minute that day. Their love radiates around them. I was no match with my one liners. I think I’ll be learning some new ones. I was cracking up.
Here’s my highlights of some wonderful people!
Hello Spring! Hello new little humans.
My first new little lady to meet is Josie. What a real little dolly. She’s three weeks new on this day. A very alert and curious sweetheart. It was a dark overcast day, but we captured the little light we could. Of course now we have summer weather happening here in the PNW. Weather is sure a gamble in these parts. We played, snuggled, wrapped, unwrapped, and played some more. I thought it was super cute that she liked to be sitting up when changing outfits. I like a girl that knows what she wants! ;)
So here is a new layout for the images I’m giving a try. I have some new upgrades that I have purchased so feel free to private message me feedback. I have a new online gallery that is superior to the old format. So make sure you check it out. I do not have all the older sessions uploaded. However, if you would like to have yours up to see what cool things you can now purchase just let me know.
Enjoy this little beauty!
Happiness is on the way for this adorable couple. I should say more happiness is on the way because I could see all the love they have for each other. Their energy was contagious. It was such an honor to capture and share. What can be more beautiful than a pregnant mamma glowing with the miracle of life coming?! I remember feeling so proud of my baby bump. I wanted to show off those curves whenever I got the chance.
I can’t wait to meet the tiny little human that’s almost done cooking. And I can’t wait to see those faces looking at him. Ahhhhhhh …. it’s going to be magical.
Here is a tiny little glimpse into their session. I gave them a gigantic amount of images. I couldn’t help it!
