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!

Oh and I’m feeling a little bit proud, cause I built that table – out of pallet wood, no less! And I made that wooden sign too. 🙂

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!)

Are you up for a wintery shoot? I’ve been tossing around the idea of bringing out the hot cocoa theme for a select few….Just contact me, and we can chat it up and start dreaming about your own portrait adventure!

 

Delightfully,

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? Don’t get me wrong, I really do love the fall – the gorgeous colors as the leaves change, crisp mornings, sometimes […]

 

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,

D. | Back to School portrait Shoot {Seattle Child & Family Photographer}

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!

 

Walking “to school…”

Dakota John | {Jumping on the Couch} Child Portraits

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.

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.)

If you read my last post, you’re probably wondering what that little baby hidden inside my tummy so long ago looks like. Well, wait no longer…at least not for a peek at what he looked like over two months ago! lol! He is such a cutie pie and it was such a blast being able to take gorgeous newborn portraits of my own precious little one. (Of couse I love doing newborn portrait shoots for all of my fabulous clients, but there’s just something about it being your own. 🙂 )

Without further ado, here are some of my favorites from the shoot (they few I’ve had time to edit and share with the world!)
