Little C’s Newborn Portraits | {Greater Seattle Area Child & Family Portrait Photographer}

January 19th, 2017

And since I’m all into sharing my own adventures in babyland with little C, I thought I would continue sharing his first year of official newborn and baby portraits. I really wanted to style some of his newborn photo shoot to match the theme of my maternity & family portraits, our hot cocoa in the woods family portrait adventure.  That way, someday when I really get around to creating a book, showcasing both little C’s newborn photos and my maternity photos, there would be a lovely flow and showcase a continuation of the story we created in my maternity photos. That’s something I love – creating a story, an adventure, for my dear clients to have. They step into the story that really captures their story and documents it in a marvelously beautiful and creative way. That’s what I’m about. That’s what makes my heart sing. So of course I would continue that heart-song into my own family’s portraits.

Here are some of my favorites:

The next one completes a vision I had. I wanted a canvas of my three boys, cozying up on my bed, crisp white sheets and all, so that I could hang it in my bedroom and gaze upon their sweet faces each day. This is a precious moment in time captured and preserved forever. Oh how quickly they grow!

MY Maternity and Family Portraits – Hot Cocoa in the Woods | {Greater Seattle Area Child & Family Portrait Photographer}

January 17th, 2017

Hey, all! You know the story of the cobbler whose kids never had any shoes? Well, I’m kind of the photographer whose kids never have any (edited) photos of themselves. Oh, I take plenty, of portraits of my boys, that’s for sure, and I get them all gussied up (or as much as you can […]

 

Hey, all! You know the story of the cobbler whose kids never had any shoes? Well, I’m kind of the photographer whose kids never have any (edited) photos of themselves. Oh, I take plenty, of portraits of my boys, that’s for sure, and I get them all gussied up (or as much as you can gussy up boys) for portrait adventures of our own, but editing….um….that’s another story. Life is busy, and computer time is limited. What time I do get at my computer, I usually devote to my clients and have a blast creating masterpieces out of their photos. But my family’s photos…Well, you get the gist.

I was SO proud of myself that I edited the Last Lemonade Stand of the Summer Photos in a decent amount of time, AND I even edited and put in a WALL GALLERY autumn-style photos of our mini portrait adventure to the pumpkin patch. You see, I just got this unstoppable urge to match my autumn wall gallery to my autumn decor, and I moved mountains to get it accomplished!

An-y-way….That is my little explanation as to why I am just now posting my almost two-year-old photos of my own family maternity portrait adventure from when baby C. was in my belly. My dear and talented friend, Tessa, of Tessa Danielle Photography was kind enough to come out and capture on digital film the crazy hot cocoa in the woods portrait adventure I dreamed up and styled. She and I used to shoot weddings together, and I love how our brains just “get” each other! She let me have fun styling, directing, and editing my family portraits, and she knows just how to capture the moments!

Cozy up, maybe pour yourself a little mug of hot cocoa (or coffee, or tea,) and enjoy a trek through the forest with my family!

I really really wanted a frosty day so our maternity & family photo shoot would have a bit of a snowy feel. Looking back, I’m glad we didn’t! It was cold enough for the little ones, dressed without coats so we could keep up our coordinating look. And I ended up loving the richness of the greenery with our reds. Still, I just couldn’t resist working some Photoshop magic on one of the images. (Compare it with the first image in this maternity shoot post!)

Last Lemonade Stand of the Summer | {Greater Seattle Area Child & Family Portrait Photographer}

October 21st, 2016

Weelllllll, I suppose summer is most definitely officially over. I know, I know, it has been gone for some time now. Does anyone else mourn the end of summer, or is it just me?

Weelllllll, I suppose summer is most definitely officially over. I know, I know, it has been gone for some time now. Does anyone else mourn the end of summer, or is it just me? Don’t get me wrong, I really do love the fall – the gorgeous colors as the leaves change, crisp mornings, sometimes blanketed in mysterious fog, but oh summer! It’s my favorite. So, for those of you who might be missing summer just a little bit, here is a sneak peak into the portrait adventure I had with my boys to celebrate the end of summer. What better way to do that than with an end-of-summer lemonade stand?! When I do a portrait adventure, I love to get the kiddos involved in every part of the action. They love to play (and so do I,) so it’s a win-win for everyone! Why not catch them in their element?

Here, they “paint” and “build” the stand. I love how little C wants to do everything like big brothers!

Oh I just ADORE how this Last Lemonade Stand of the Summer portrait adventure captured my boys in their element. They love to create & play, they love lemonade stands and always make big plans for them, they love making messes, and they love sugar! 😉 And I have the portrait memories to cherish forever. Did you see little C’s precious curls? Well, one day, I will have to cut his hair, and the curls will most likely be gone forever, just like his big brothers’. This photo shoot serves as one last showcase of those amazing blonde curls. They grow up all too quickly! Sigh…

I hope you enjoyed this peek into their world as much as I did! I’d love to go on an adventure with you, too. Just drop me a line, and let’s start dreaming!

I wanted to post this lovely family portrait shoot with ballerinas, sandcastles, lighthouses, and playing in the waves. You can almost feel the fun we had on that day as you enjoy the portraits! As I was talking with mom, Kristen, about her darling family and possible locations, it came out that lighthouses play a significant roll in their family. Well, I knew just the place, and we took it from there! Middle sister, Anna, looks up to and copies almost everything big sis, Abby, does. I love how I captured that in their family portraits. The girls love their ballet costumes and American Girl rolls, so we were sure to include those, along with a bunch of family fun!

It’s so hard to believe the little ones are back in school already! What could beat a whimsical back-to-school photo shoot? This back to school portrait shoot post is VERY late in coming, as far as sharing goes, but it’s hard to make time for blogging! I just had to share these darling back to school pics anyway. These portraits were taken days before D. started KINDERGARTEN. Unbelievable. You can see how proud and excited he is in his portraits. It’s a child photographer’s dream to capture to emotion our little ones have. For parents, it’s so hard to remember all of the details, so I love when a photograph can save some of them forever!

For this portrait session, we had a little mini portrait adventure, complete with taking a walk to “school,” reading, writing, and even a little teaching (D. teaching me!) At one point, D. was telling me all about the planets and how they fit together and race through the solar system. Such sweet moments to capture on camera!

Here is little C. as an aviator in his very own portrait shoot! We trekked out into the golden grass fields. (Ok SWAMP, yes the ground was so saturated that it seeped through my shoes. Little C. isn’t heavy enough for the water to do any damage, so be was happy as a clam!) Just look at how the portraits capture his helicopter sounds and sweet smiles as he gets into character and plays along! I love how I have a job that lets me capture kids in their element, as they really are and how you want to remember them. As a boutique lifestyle photographer, I get to go out and play, saving the memories for you to savor forever. How’s that for something smile-worthy?

Hey all! You may remember Emma from the senior portrait adventure we had together. Well, I got the privilege of taking her family’s portraits recently, and we had a ton of fun creating works of art for the whole family. They are a riot together (which you will soon witness in their photos.) I loved getting to know them all through the whole process, and we certainly portrayed their personalities and loves in their family portraits. I wish you could have been a fly on the wall as we planned out the shoot together. You’d have heard things like, “Let’s get an old crusty couch and put it out in the middle of the field….” “Dad likes to get in other people’s pictures…” “Your whole family loves reading. How about bringing out a massive supply of books and putting them around you guys….”  “We should try to find some old KFC hats!…” and on and on and on. Too. Much. Fun. Since they got a few art books and amazing wall art, I have a lot of portraits that I just can’t resist sharing. And away we go!

Yes, I am officially not shooting weddings….but, I just couldn’t say no when my good friends Jeff and Chris asked me to have the honor of shooting their wedding. It was a fantastic day, fully of so much love and laughter!! Oh what fun to play a special part in their wedding day! My good friend Tessa of Tessa Danielle Photography was my second shooter. If you are in the market for a wedding photographer, feel free to contact her! Carna Lapping of Very Important Events was Jeff and Chris’s fabulous wedding coordinator. Here are some favorites from the day!

Bella | Princess Photo Shoot {Seattle Child Photographer}

March 21st, 2013

Beautiful little Bella! Oh what fun we had playing princesses in the woods. Before her portrait shoot, I asked her what she thought a princess would do in the woods.

Beautiful little Bella! Oh what fun we had playing princesses in the woods. Before her portrait shoot, I asked her what she thought a princess would do in the woods. She said, “…pick flowers and pick berries…,” so pick flowers and berries we did. Oh and she threw in her own little touch when she thought the white raphia I set up was actually supposed to be a ghost! LOL! So, we made sure to be extra quiet while taking her photos so as not to disturb the ghost! We also called on the fairies for help to save the prince from the ghost’s spell…we made up our adventure as we went along. It was magical!
