Sweet, sweet summer haze.

Oh, how I love warm, dusky summer evenings filled with the golden glow of a setting sun and childish laughter. Last weekend, Jaime, of jlv photography, and her family met up with me around 7PM to spend the last minutes of the day together making memories for her family. She was the March recipient of the 2011 Photog Pay it Forward (PIF). Jaime also brought along her brother who was visiting from out of state as the child wrangler, which was wonderful! I barely had to work!! Enjoy the images; the light is divine.

February in June.

Welcome to February’s installment (yes, I said February) of the 2011 Photog Pay it Forward (PIF). One of my goals for these sessions is to ensure the best possible results and rainy, murky weather just would NOT do! So, February’s session occurred in June. Lynell, of Artistic Images Photography, and her lovely family came down to Mukilteo from Ferndale to spend a little over an hour dodging infrequent raindrops and meltdowns near Paine Field. The girls had a great time running wild and we got some great shots.


Sneak peek… {expecting} Codie & Jonas

Last Monday I met up with Codie and Jonas for an outdoor maternity session at Discovery Park in Seattle. Their session was planned weeks in advance and Codie and I were confident that late June would equal amazing, warm weather with a delightful sunset. WRONG. Seattle has been plagued by “June-uary”; brisk, drizzly, gray days more fitting for April than almost July.

Despite drizzle and overcast conditions, we had a great time together (including peanut butter and pickles) and the images? AMAZING. Check them out below.

Sneak Peek… {new life} Baby Brody | Bothell Newborn Photographer

I was DUE for a sweet, sleepy newborn. One of the keys for a successful newborn session in my style is that baby be completely asleep. And, sometimes… that just isn’t gonna happen. I make sure chat with the new parents prior to their newborn photography session and give them some steps they can take to ensure as smooth a session as possible; full belly, very warm room, keep them awake before I get there, session must take place within the first 2 weeks of life, etc.

Well, Kara and Ryan (remember their maternity session at the tulip fields) must have NAILED it because baby Brody was great. He was awake for the family shots and went into a deep, peaceful slumber when it was his turn to shine. Since the weather was so spectacular last Saturday, we even took him outside towards the end of his session and he woke up and showed off his soulful baby blues. Great family, great session.


This last shot is a little behind-the scenes look. Ryan took Brody into the house for a little snuggle and calm-down time. How sweet!
