I just love “just because” couples portrait sessions! Who says you need a special occasion to celebrate your love and have fun together creating portrait memories and artwork you will treasure? Not me! Sean and Kim wanted to have a couples portrait session, partly so they would have pictures to cherish while they would be apart for a long summer and partly to have portraits to share with family. Sean’s parents have a fishing boat, on which he has spent many long months, working and playing hard, creating memories, and on which he would be during the upcoming summer. It was a no-brainer that the boat was the ideal starting point for Sean and Kim’s couples portraits in Seattle. Later, we headed down to the Ballard Locks in Seattle for more fun-loving pictures, even having them sport their snow gear, since they love spending days in the snow together.

I forgot to mention it was snowing! How perfect, since they love snow. Can you see the tiny little flakes?

Oh yea, and they have this thing where Kim will tickle Sean without warning, and Sean is so ticklish! Then, if Sean tries to tickle Kim, it’s no big deal because it doesn’t phase her at all! Kim and I had this plan to surprise Sean with the tickles, so I just randomly counted out, “Ok ready? 1, 2, 3!” Sean had no idea what hit him, and when he tried to get her back, Kim just shrugged at his feeble attempts.

James & Katie | {“Just Because” Couples Portraits} Seattle Bellevue Portrait Photographer

And yet another “just because” couples portrait session. I love it! It’s such a joy to get a little glimpse into each and every relationship I photograph. Each couple has its own unique qualities, and I get to document a bit of the couple’s love story in portraits. What an honor! James and Katie each […]

 

And yet another “just because” couples portrait session. I love it! It’s such a joy to get a little glimpse into each and every relationship I photograph. Each couple has its own unique qualities, and I get to document a bit of the couple’s love story in portraits. What an honor! James and Katie each have their own wonderful, quirky qualities and fit perfectly together. They have a deep love for each other and for their neighborhood in Seattle, so we knew their neighborhood was the perfect place for their couples portraits. And what a place it was. I mean, where else would you find someone giving away free pie on their birthday?! We had to get some pictures of that! Both James and Katy are artists, so we captured some cute portraits of the couple creating some artwork on their chalkboard paint car. What fun we had on our photographing adventure!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

James and Katy, you two are such amazing people. Thank you for inviting me into your life for your “just because” couples shoot. I loved every minute of the shoot and getting to know you both!

Blessings,

Kristen

Sally | {“Just Because” Portrait Shoot} Seattle Portrait Photographer

November 6th, 2010

Little did we know what fun Sally and I were in for when it turned out her two kids couldn’t make it to the family portrait shoot. She decided it would be a great idea to have her very own “just because” portrait session, and it was a blast! We got so many gorgeous photos […]

 

Little did we know what fun Sally and I were in for when it turned out her two kids couldn’t make it to the family portrait shoot. She decided it would be a great idea to have her very own “just because” portrait session, and it was a blast! We got so many gorgeous photos of Sally,…and the lighting and even the flowers (check out how perfectly the purple flowers match her purple top later,) were created just especially for us that day.  I have been loving designing all of the lovely keepsakes she’s getting: an amazing Art Book (I started carrying the larger 10×10 size, inspired by her shoot,) some 411 cards, fabulous prints to enjoy…Oh we are having so much fun with this! Here are some (okay, a lot!) of my favorites. I may post some album spreads too.:

Sally loves going to the gym and is very passionate about yoga. We just had to capture a few beautiful yoga poses for her!
