These were taken in the nick of time…a few days later we’d have been too late! This was such a fun session with a great client…and next week I get to meet the new arrival! :-)

growing up

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

I love repeat clients. I love to see the kids grow and change over the years. Yesterday I got to do one of my favorite families from early on. If you’ve visited my website, you’ve seen their faces. Dad set up this session as surprise birthday gift for his beautiful wife…how sweet is that?? Brownie points!! Today is her birthday, so I wanted to get their sneak peek up. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, S!! I hope you love these few I picked out for the blog!

Here’s a flashback to a few years ago!

I had this little 8-month old in the studio last week! He had just learned to crawl, but luckily he was happy enough to sit.

He is so adorable! He reminds me of my son when he was this age.

Look at that smile!

We had one of those gorgeous Seattle autumn days and the perfect setting for this extended family session. The girls mainly wanted to run around and play, but who could blame them on this kind of day!

We managed to corral them all together for some family photos…

This family is moving this month, so we got some of the girls with their grandparents.

And the whole beautiful family!

Family sessions are a challenge…it’s hard to get everyone looking good in the same photo, or even looking in the same direction, especially with kids, but they are so important. I love being able to capture this time for families. And good luck to this family in their new life!

Last Saturday was a glorious fall day that remind me how much I love the Pacific Northwest. It started out overcast, but not cold. One of those perfect fall mornings. I met this family at one of their favorite local beaches for some photos.

There was tree climbing…

And rock-throwing….

And cuddles with grandma…

And log-jumping…

And in between, I managed to get a few smiles…

Thanks for the great session!!

Laura and Paul | Seattle photographer

Last week I had the honor of photographing the wedding of Laura and Paul. It was a small, intimate wedding at Cafe Juanita, and it was the most beautiful wedding I have ever attended. These two are blessed indeed, with each other and with a community of family and friends who cherish them. I wonder how often the photographer ends up crying at weddings?? :-) Luckily I didn’t end up with blurry photos!

Here are the bride and groom…Congratulations you two, and here’s to a long and wonderful journey together.

The bride was attended by her lovely daughter, who read a very beautiful piece about marriage (wish I could remember the author!).

Cafe Juanita was the perfect spot for a small, intimate wedding…it was gorgeous!

For a happy marriage, keep doing lots of this…

Cheers, you two!

Today’s session with Jen and Brian was one of my favorites in a long time!! Everything was just right! We thought we might get rained out, but the rain held off and kept the crowds away from our location!! I had the privilege of shooting their wedding a few weeks ago and was thrilled that they wanted to do some fun shots on Jen’s bike and at the lake where they had their first date (awwwwww!!). It was really hard to pick favorites to show…and there’s so many more to edit! Here are some I just couldn’t wait to show them.

We started at their place for some fun shots on the bike…I love these two!

then we headed over to the lake….

Here’s to many happy years ahead you two! I hope you are always laughing!

Studio coming soon | Seattle family photographer

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

The new studio space is almost ready. It’s a matter of getting organized and fine-tuning at this point. My daughter wanted me to try it out on her the other day, so I snapped a few by my tree wall. I am looking forward to offering some holiday sessions in the new studio! Stay tuned for more information and an opening special!

This past Friday night I had the opportunity to photograph the wedding of this adorable couple! I LOVED the colors they chose, and the vintage look to everything!

They got married at the historic Monte Cristo Ballroom…a beautiful and intimate place for a wedding!

I LOVED the dress she wore!!

Congratulations, Jen & Brian! Here’s to many happy years ahead!
