our first half our or so we had to get creative. julie forgot mia’s outfit. she basically threw the kids into the car afterschool, and forgot mia’s clothes back home in issaquah- which is not a fun drive during rush hour. so, we got creative and just sandwiched mia inbetween her crazy older brothers and god, they are so good with her! i mean, so, so good. thankfully, deano (dad) made it back with mia’s clothes & we were able to get everyone together. these are some of my favorites. anytime i can get some real honest to god interactions- and total fun stuff mixed with sweet stuff- i sort of sing a happy tune in my head and do cartwheels. mia is the perfect addition to this family. she softened these awesome little boys into dynamite big brothers. had such a fun session julie! thank you!

i seriously am so lucky to have new clients reach out to me as awesome as this family! love the love they have- and they have a hound dog like me! their hound happened to listen a bit more than mine, and actually look at the camera when i said ‘treat’. thank you michele and family! loved meeting you all, even if for just 30 minutes. and you guys would die if you saw where we were shooting. literally in a parking lot that looked like a beautiful field!

a favorite family of mine to photograph each year and i’m so thankful they make the drive to make it happen. i’ve been photographing them since before eda (youngest) was even born and ava and ila were just small littles. i think pictures stress this family out a bit, but for me- i know i’m always going to get a bit of magic because of their connection. katy is a fierce mama & i so admire her constant want to be a better mom. she has a desire unlike anyone i know to constantly grow and nurture her girls, and i think she’s doing an awesome job. thank you erickson’s. another year of pictures in the books! xo

the first time i’ve ever met another jocelyn! this is jocelyn and her darling little family. her little girl dane was giving me some serious mug & i loved it!! how gorgeous are her eyes?? and i loved her teeny little outfit. so amazed sometimes at how much i can get from some of my sessions in just a half hour! makes it so hard to choose my fave images. one of the best things i love about my annual holiday mini sessions is that i always get to meet new clients- so fun! thank you guys!
sometimes the stars align and you meet people you should probably be friends with. and sometimes you want to kidnap their kids because they are so damn bomb. i mean, i can’t handle little man’s face. his hair. the way he kept holding his mama’s hand. ack. i have a serious crush on that little brown eyed pal. such a fast, great, easy session. glad i finally got to meet this family. i know so many people in their inner circle, that i swear- i felt like i knew them, but nope. first time and so great! xo
i photographed amanda and LT in the exact same spot when amanda was pregnant with sienna. some of my favorite pictures to date. and just like then, we got so lucky with another beautiful evening with gorgeous light. sienna had us laughing that is for sure! she was full of it and that can a nightmare for parent’s because they think we aren’t going to get any good shots, but it’s a photographer’s dream because we know we are gonna get some great ones. enjoy!

whenever i have a mini session, i get a little nervous. like- can i capture a family in 30 minutes in the way i’d like to? can i bring out personalities? can i find pretty light? can i? can i? the answer is- i can’t do it alone- but with awesome clients- i most certainly can. what’s even more awesome about this mini session- is they brought their two dogs- bandito and ruby. so cute!

the leaves were just beginning to turn and we were having thelast days of our indian summer. seems like forever ago- considering all the rain and wind we’ve gotten this past weekend, but it was less than a month ago. enjoyed meeting this family & hanging out with them. they knew how to laugh, how to make eachother laugh and have fun. and that boy chase? such a good older brother. loved the ones of him holding his baby sister. siblings. the best. ever.
