Dakota John | {Jumping on the Couch} Child Portraits

January 8th, 2010

Okay – so normally I don’t let Dakota…or the cats…or the dog…or anyone with messy fingers or smelly socks sit on my living room couch, let along jump on it! Yet, who can resist when the whole ensemble and enthusiasm make for such a picture perfect moment! I love how the red of Dakota’s Christmas […]

 

Okay – so normally I don’t let Dakota…or the cats…or the dog…or anyone with messy fingers or smelly socks sit on my living room couch, let along jump on it! Yet, who can resist when the whole ensemble and enthusiasm make for such a picture perfect moment! I love how the red of Dakota’s Christmas pjs contrast with the softness of the rest of the room and compliment the greens in the pillow beside him. Too perfect – and this was a totally candid moment. I love catching those types of shots on portrait shoots, especially child portrait shoots – how fun when they happen with my very own family, who is on a constant portrait shoot, so it seems!

Check out his new monogrammed Christmas pjs! We decided to start a new family tradition of opening new pjs on Christmas eve and wear them as our Christmas morning present-opening attire.

“I need to rest,” he says. Who can blame him? He got more exercise in a few minutes than many of us get in a week…okay a year! 😉

Campbell | {9 Month Old Baby Portraits}

Remember Darling Campbell from her four month baby portrait session? Well, the cutie pie and her mommy and daddy are back again to show off baby Campbell and all that she can do nowadays.

Remember Darling Campbell from her four month baby portrait session? Well, the cutie pie and her mommy and daddy are back again to show off baby Campbell and all that she can do nowadays. This baby portrait photography session is the third out of four sessions in my Baby’s First Year package. Just look at all she can do now! She crawls at almost the speed of light – it took several takes to capture her in action…She smiles up a storm, she can even stand on her own for a few precious seconds. If I ever get a chance, I’ll post a little mini photograph movie showing her expressions when she realized she was standing on her own and mommy had let go to stand off to the side. It was quite a hoot. I could jSo precious!

Yes, I am still on maternity leave officially, but her session fell in the midst of it, giving me a fun splash back into the photo shoot action again. Aaaah what a great way to do it – full of baby portrait love and smiles. Now, without further ado, here are a few of my favorites from Campbell’s baby portrait session:

Who can resist a touch of Christmas…and mistletoe?!:

Karen and Bob | Wedding {Tacoma Art Museum}

January 2nd, 2010

Guess where I was last Saturday? Shooting a wedding at the Tacoma Art Museum!  Kind of ironic, considering I just posted my maternity leave photos not too long ago. In case you’re wondering, yes, I am still on maternity leave, BUT I got a call from a photog friend who had gotten really sick at […]

 

Guess where I was last Saturday? Shooting a wedding at the Tacoma Art Museum!  Kind of ironic, considering I just posted my maternity leave photos not too long ago. In case you’re wondering, yes, I am still on maternity leave, BUT I got a call from a photog friend who had gotten really sick at the last minute and asked if I could shoot the wedding for her. It was quite funny taking off my mommy hat for a bit and putting on my photographer hat to head down for the home wedding in Puyallup and wedding reception at the Tacoma Art Museum.

Everyone pulled together to pull it off. My wonderful hubby even followed me down to the wedding and met me there at the end so I could nurse little Canyon. It all worked out beautifully, and Karen and Bob (the gorgeous bride and handsome groom) had a magical night. You could just tell they are so in LOVE! It was so beautiful to see. For now, here’s a little teaser. Can you guess what these shoes were for???
