this past year, i’ve stopped for the most part doing my lifestyle/newborn at home family sessions, but when i found out this family was adding a baby brother- i couldn’t say no and when i found his name was bennett (just like my husband)- i was sold. i met bennett when he was 8 days new and he has quite the fan base with his siblings. they each wanted to hold him & they each wanted to be the first. i’d say- if those are problems- then this mama is quite lucky to have her kiddos be this excited. i chose b/w- which i almost never do, because sometimes for me- it simplifies the photo. and i like simple newborn photos- especially at home. enjoy this beautiful family

hard to believe this wedding weekend took place nearly 3 months ago! so fun to go back and revisit jeff & renee’s day. these two have an insane mutual adoration for one another and aren’t afraid to show how deeply they care for and adore eachother. i want to also thank erin rinabarger for assisting to me and being my second shooter. with a wedding party with as large and jeff and renee’s (over 20 people), it’s not an easy task to keep things moving- all the meanwhile capturing the event. i so appreciated her help on this day! congrats jeff & renee. it was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. enjoy all these images- so many great ones to choose from it was very difficult to narrow down for a post.

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!
