Meet two year old Eva~Gig Harbor

img_7084-edit

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.

Meet the Williams~Tolt McDonald Campground

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*

Meet Emma~2 weeks

IMG_4152-Edit

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.

ENJOY

Meet the Strahans ~ Carkeek Park, Seattle

IMG_3856-Edit

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.

Lincoln//2 weeks

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

Jack + Heidi~University of Washington Campus

IMG_2312-Edit

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!

Meet Josie~In Studio, Duvall

IMG_2000

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!  ;)IMG_2146

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!

6 months session with little Eva

Watching this little beauty grow up is such a joy for me.  But it’s going too fast!  I’ll blink and she’ll be walking and running. She has some gorgeous baby blues doesn’t she!!

During the six month session they are my captive and can’t run. I love it!  I get tons of huge belly laughs and smiles.  Usually lots of drool still  spilling out, but I’d don’t mind that!  Drool on baby!   As usual, we have lots of fun!  Here are some of my favorites!♥

Meet the Edwards~Lake Rasmussen, Duvall

It’s wonderful to watch your clients growing families.  Since newborns, I have been capturing these two.  They are just about perfect every time. I don’t even have to run to chase them.  :)-  I did however, try out a new product I have to capture their attention.  I used a camera lens buddy off Etsy.  And it worked like a charm.   If you have the time you could knit one for yourself pretty easily.

This location is right by my house.  This works well to have some studio shots and outdoor shots in the colder weather months.  So then the kiddos are only outside for around a half an hour or so.  Here are a few of my favorites from our session.

I hope you all enjoy your time off with your families this weekend.  AND….. Go Hawks!!

Meet the Andries~Kirkland Waterfront & Heritage Park

IMG_1688

Here we are at the close of summer.  My last session in the summer sun.  School has started up again and we are right back in the routine of things.  Back to Football games, corn mazes, and pumpkins spice lattes.  I ♥ fall.  But I was also sad to see the summer go.  I will miss the beach days.

We traveled to Oregon this year to camp in a new place.  Took a great journey with family and friends to the Cove Palisades.  It was a beautiful spot with zero mosquitos and campfires.  Score!!!

So after returning I got to photograph some more of my adored friends.  They have three little beauty queens that are beaming with joy.  They just celebrated 17 years together.  What a special thing to honor.  I was so happy to capture them.  They can see the wonderful bright future ahead of them.  I wish I could post all the pictures, but I had to choose my favorites.  So I hope you enjoy these.

∗I thought I would share a useful tip on making your kiddos smile and laugh for pictures.  Just use some bathroom humor.  It works every time!!  Ok now say “butt cheeks”…..
