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

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!)

Delightfully,

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

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!

 

Delightfully,

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!

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!

Look out, world! Another cutie pie has just joined us and has already started her “modeling career” in her newborn portrait session with Kristen Buchmann Photography. 🙂  Baby Kyri Emmaline was just three days old when I had the honor or capturing her newborn sweetness in portraits.  I hope you enjoy gazing at Kyri’s newborn photos as much as I loved taking them. You’ll see how much big brother, Gabriel, and mommy and daddy, Eve and Scott, just love this precious new little one.

She is a little gift!

One of the sweetest things about this next portrait is that Gabriel picked out the outfit at the store himself after Kyri was born! Awwww…. (They didn’t know if she would be a boy or girl beforehand and so didn’t have much in the baby girl attire department.)

Check out Kyri’s teeny tiny newborn hands and fingers!

You gotta love her little baby bottom!

I love what a sweet, intimate, mommy daughter moment this one captures:

Scott, Eve, Gabriel, and baby Kyri, you all were were wonderful! Thank you for letting me share these special moments with you and having me capture her newborn portraits for you.

Hooray! Even though I haven’t kept my blogging up-to-date, I just had to share Campbell’s adorable one-year-old portraits! Can you believe she just had her first birthday? If you have been following my blog, you may remember Campbell’s other cute photo shoots. Brent & Stacey signed up for my Baby’s First Year Collection, so they have been enjoying four portrait sessions throughout the year. I’m designing photos from Cambell’s newborn portraits, four month baby portraits, nine month baby portraits, and one-year-old first birthday portraits into an adorable keepsake album. I can’t wait until it’s finished for them, and maybe I’ll even share it with all of you! We were greeted with gorgeous weather this past Saturday, which made Campbell’s first birthday portraits just that much more fun! Here are a few faves:

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!

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?!:

Christmas 2009 | {Family Time}

December 30th, 2009

We had such a fabulous Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season too! Our Dakota, now two and a half, has been the most animated this Christmas than ever. We were all full of laughs watching him open presents and pass them out, bubbling with excitement over a new Tigger and Pooh […]

 

We had such a fabulous Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season too! Our Dakota, now two and a half, has been the most animated this Christmas than ever. We were all full of laughs watching him open presents and pass them out, bubbling with excitement over a new Tigger and Pooh videos…train sets…the sled he wanted from Santa – you name it!

I’ve been getting a little more in the shooting mode again as my maternity leave is slowly winding down and my brain is able to wrap around more than just baby stuff. I was even inspired when I caught my bro, Will, and his girlfriend, Mariko, snuggling on the couch. I snuck a shot of them and then we turned it all into a mini photo shoot. I even had an “assistant!” (You’ll have to check out the pics to see who it was.)

And introducing: My new assistant! We gave Dakota a camera for Christmas, and he’s ready to work it like mommy. That’s my pumpkin!
