Sneak peek… {family} Ushikubos & Kubotas

Mountlake Terrace area Family Photographer

Up on a mountain(ish) top…

 Earlier this morning I met up with the Ushikubos (whom we have seen before here) and the Kubotas. Takeshi, an Ushikubo, and Nao, a Kubota but former Ushikubo, are siblings. Takeshi and his family live here and Nao and her family are from Japan. But, no matter how you dice it they are all family.

Anyway, we got together and traipsed up what is at least quite a steep hill, I carried a couch (YES… a couch. Takeshi WAS nice enough to help me bring it back down) and we had a blast! The babies were almost on meltdown after about a half hour, but thankfully I was a photo NINJA and had already completed the session by then. Without further adieu, enjoy the sneak peek!

Sneak peek… {mom & me} Candace, Maya & Sean

Posted on May 20, 2010

Cute, cuter, cuter-er.

That is the only way to describe this family. Meet Candace and her two babies, Maya & Sean. I have photographed Maya and Candace twice but this is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of getting Sean in on the action. The kiddos did a GREAT job considering the temperature in our studio space was up around 85-90 degrees in order to get things ready for a newborn session that was occuring back-to-back with their session. It was tough for me to pick a few for their sneak peek. I hope you enjoy them!







Sneak peek… {new life} Scarlett

Posted on May 20, 2010

This is for teensy, weensy baby Scarlett.

I met her on her one week birthday, just yesterday. She is daughter to Jaime and Josh and sissy to Aidan and Caleb. She is also an auburn haired little Irish spitfire, all 6 pounds 12 ounces of her! She stayed awake for me for 3 hours; there was no way she was missing out on her first, of many, photo shoots. Of the 3 hours she was the star, there was suprisingly little crying. She did a great job and I’m sure took quite the nap after I left. Enjoy her shots!!






Sneak peek… {new life} Jenny

Posted on May 15, 2010

Meet the mommy-to-be of the self-proclaimed cutest baby in the world! This sneak peek is for Jenny and Jay while they wait out the last few days before Miss Stella makes her debut. Based on what I saw in the decked out nursery, Stella can’t HELP but be the cutest baby on the block at the very least. Jenny, Jay, Jewel (sister pooch) and I had a great, warm session and I can’t WAIT to go back and meet sweet Stella. I’ve been out prop shopping just for her arrival!

Sneak peek… {child} Eleanor & Georgia

Posted on May 3, 2010

Seattle area Child Photographer

There is nothing like a sister for a best friend.

Or a wrestling partner, a secret sharer and later on, shopping partner. I had the pleasure of meeting up with some sweet little sissies… Meet Eleanor and Georgia.

The girls’ parents won the bid at a charity auction this winter benefiting  Seattle University’s Professionals Without Boundaries (PWOB) which CYE Photography had the honor of donating to. PWOB is a group of Seattle University professionals driven to empower students to serve and lead sustainable service projects that help people in need. A worthy endeavor to be sure.

For the girls’ photo shoot I brought along some vintage luggage, tu-tus and a cutesy umbrella. Let me tell you, lugging that stuff around Juanita Bay Park at 9:30 AM and enduring more than one concerned look from the morning’s joggers was worth it. These little ladies fell in love with all of my props (or ’clutter’ as my husband calls it) and their photos are SO STINKIN’ CUTE. Check out the proof below:
