As promised another family session! To say I love photographing this bunch is a huge understatement. This was my fourth session with them, growing with a family as a photographer is incredible. I really value the relationship I get to build and the trust that is created, especially between the kids and I. The first time I photographed Dylan, she was so shy and very cautious. I put my work in and gained her trust that session. Now when I see the kids its hugs and a rambunctious time. There may be a surprise at the end of this post if you want to see my first session with this crew:)
Annika’s cherry blossom Senior session was so gorgeous. One of my favorite times of the year is when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Annika and I had chatted about the feel we wanted during her session, soft, feminine and romantic. Her backless pink dress complimented the cherry blossoms and our vision perfectly. The Arboretum is one of my go to spots during all four seasons in Seattle. Each season has something beautiful to offer. I can still squeeze in a few more 2018 Seniors before June. Class of 2019 Im currently booking into November. Click here to book your session, or scroll to the bottom so you can see this gorgeous cherry blossom infused Senior session. I’ll leave a link at the bottom too:)
Have you ever wondered what a family session with me looks like? Well, I have decided to start sharing more family sessions so you can see. I only have one rule at my sessions, that we have fun. As you scroll through this gallery I think the theme of “Fun” is pretty apparent. I never want my family sessions to feel like a chore. My goal is to make your kids forget we are even taking photos. We play, we act silly, we take breaks, and we go with the flow. Isn’t that the point of family photos, to come together and show your love for each other. To just be you without the pressure of being perfect in front of the camera? I focus on the little moments, the personality traits that are probably more of a fleeting stage your child is going through. I want to freeze those moments in time so you can remember them forever. Another huge part of my family sessions is what you bring to the table. Its simple, come with an open mind and be ready to play! Don’t worry if your kids get muddy or throw a tantrum. I just LOVE the Dumond’s because they do exactly this. They let their kids be themselves, and trust me things get crazy but those moments make the best photos. Don’t worry if your child acts up, that is totally normal. That’s why my sessions aren’t 15 minutes long, we take our time and have a great time together! Parents often say to me, my kids would never last 45 minutes, an hour are you kidding me? Here’s the thing, they will when it’s fun and not a chore!

That elusive Seattle sunshine decided to shine bright for Ann and Jesse’s Sodo Engagement Session! I suppose technically this wasn’t their engagement session since these two already got married last Summer. If you recognize their faces that’s why (their wedding was awesome) I love that Ann and Jesse do what they want, and having their Engagement session after their I do’s worked out perfect. We did get rained out twice, but the wait was well worth it. I almost forgot what it was like to shoot in the sun after a long Seattle winter. The sun paired with Ann’s gorgeous dress just makes this Sodo Engagement well worth scrolling through! xoxo
Woah, how on earth are these two celebrating their two year anniversary? It’s hard to think two years ago today we were in Maui and Mel and Dan had just said their I Do’s! I thought it would be fun to share some images from their incredible wedding at Gannon’s in Maui. It’s fun to look back on work from two years ago and see how much I’ve grown. Even with that growth this wedding is still one of my favorites! Here’s a quick look back on this gorgeous destination wedding in Maui! Happy Anniversary you two! xoxo
