Sneak Peek… {new life} Monette

I knew, just knew, this session was going to be good.

One of the last emails from the pre-session consult with this couple ended with them asking me what flavor coffee creamer I liked. Holy cow! They must have looked inside of my soul! Either that or I really do sound that hyped-up on caffeine on the phone… I was even MORE blown away when they packed up a maple bar (my favorite donut!) AND a napkin for me to enjoy on my ride home (just the donut, not the napkin). And I thought the 30 minute (sans kidlets) ride to and from their home was going to be the best part. Wrong!

Who were these amazing clients? Monette and Brett! We met at their home this morning for a new life maternity session. Their first child (notice how I didn’t say what the sex was?) is due in a short 4 weeks. Hopefully this little bebe will be making the big debut ON 3/31 or before because Monette made it very clear that an April Fool’s baby was not happening. I really think she might be stubborn enough to get her way too! ;)

Since Brett and Monette were so amazing and accomodating, I have a treat for them; An extra large sneak peek!! Instead of my usual 3-5 images, I am going to mix things up a bit and show off 7 images. Really, they were just that amazing that I couldn’t pick! Enjoy mami and papi!

Sneak Peek… {sweet baby} Mya

Posted on February 15, 2010

Lynnwood area Child Photographer


[spit-fahyuhr] –noun      1. a person, esp. a girl or woman, who is of fiery spirit  

THAT is what she was. Maybe the most cuddly, silly spitfire but spitfire nonetheless! She is totally cute and is completely becoming independant and has a little plan of attack going on in her mind at all times. Most of the time it seems to involve dancing and giggles.

I’m sure you recognize her… This is the Mya who had a miracle session last fall. We met up last Saturday for her 18 month photo session. She has made a lot of progress in the last few months. In fact, she almost seems to have never had any sort of medical issue at all (thank the Lord)!

We had fun. We danced. We giggled and read books. Love the sesion, love her. Would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Could I say more? Enjoy her sneak peek!

Sneak peek… {engaged!} Luke & Annamarie

Brea… I’m engaged!

Meet Annamarie and Luke. You may recognize them from back in October when CYE Photography was running fall mini session sales. Anyway, they got ENGAGED over the holidays! Congratulations!

We three had such fun last weekend. We spent the early afternoon downtown in Seattle’s Pike Place Market and did some engagement pictures for these lovebirds. Let me tell you, these two were incredible sports! They were more than happy to meet my every wild request despite the incredibly public location and the breezy weather.

This is where I was considering mentioning the fact that Luke ended up having to wear one of Annamarie’s teeny t-shirts as an undershirt because he forgot his own but I don’t want to embarrass anyone… ;)

The future Mr. & Mrs. T, enjoy your sneak peek!

Sneak peek… {new life} Frederick Joseph

He’s a ginger!

Facebook proclaimed it for the world to see… Frederick Joseph, who’s name was kept secret for the ENTIRE DURATION of pregnancy, was a bona-fide, 100% red head! Royce and Stephanie, the new daddy and momma, were beyond thrilled.

I think Stephanie was just thrilled to give birth! Baby Freddy was a little too comfortable in his uterine home and decided to hang out for an extra two, (YES! 2!!,) weeks. Oh, and did I mention that Steph had a natural birth? Talk about a trooper…

Freddy was very wide awake for most of his session which worked out great. We were able to get a lot of great shots in between feeding and cuddling and then he was ready for a super nap after it was all said and done. I think Steph was ready for a nap too. :)

Enjoy your sneak peek Royce & Steph!

Sneak Peek… {new life} Johannes

Welcome, Johannes!

Check out this squishable little bundle of heaven. To date, this is the sleepiest, most serene newborn I have every photographed and I’ve been a Seattle area newborn photographer for quite some time. He was divine!

Momma, daddy, big sister Jasela, grandpa, great grandma and auntie were all on hand to experience the photo session with Mr. Johannes. Jasela was a big help and was my best assistant for the day. Call me in about 14 years Jasela and I’ll have a position for you!

Baby J picked a great family to join. Lots of love, laughter and sarcastic jokes. My kind of place!

And now… the sneak peek for Johannes’ newborn photo session! Enjoy!
