Last Saturday, I was honored to photograph something new — a baptism! An Armenian baptism at that. The service was beautiful and was mostly in an Armenian chant which was very moving. The baby being baptized was little Mr Luke Artoush whom we’ve seen a few times; during his completely breathtaking maternity session, again for for his tearless newborn session, and most recently for his for his 5 month session amongst the cherry blossoms.

Baby Luke did a great job and the event was celebrated by lots of friends and family, some of whom traveled a far distance to celebrate. Thanks for having me, I had a blast!

Baby Bryson is back again! This is, what? His fourth sneak peek blog post? At less than a month old, I’d say that is pretty stinkin’ good!Remember these sessions? His birth story, the maternity session, the fall family session where the pregnancy was announced, and the family as three last year and the year before.

Today is his newborn session which was done in two parts. The first session, baby Bry wasn’t feeling too sleepy so we had a second go of it a few days later where he was THE BEST sleeper and was done in 40 minutes! As such, he has an extra big sneak peek today. Enjoy!

Sneak Peek… {Birth Story} Bryson

“Hurry” was I all heard from Dad. I sputtered out “I’m in Lake Stevens. I am 30 minutes away! I will make it. I WILL.” Then I white knuckle drove from the trestle down to Evergreen Hospital averaging around 75-80 and praying not to get stopped by police. After all, it was 11:45PM on a Friday night.

I made it to the hospital, ran through the parking lot, ran through the hospital, RAN to the maternity ward, RAN down the hallway past nurses with a knowing smile and made it to room 2123. Took a deep breath. Did a little knock and called out for dad.

“She’s here!”

The ‘she’ was me, thankfully. Not the baby. But boy, did we cut it close. We knew mom was going to be fast but NOT 2 hours and 40 minutes fast. But the Lord’s timing is always perfect and things ended up just as they were supposed to!

Baby Bryson has been eagerly anticipated for this family whom you have seen before. Remember these sessions? Bryson’s maternity session, the fall family session where the pregnancy was announced, and the family as three last year and the year before. And now? Now is his birth story. Next will be his newborn session in the next week. Enjoy!


Sneak Peek… {family} Old Friends

Oh, Ella | Mukilteo Family Photographer

 I had the pleasure of photographing one of my oldest (maybe I should say ‘long time’ friend? ‘Oldest’ makes me feel…. well. Old.) friends and his family a few weeks back. The star of the family is undoubtedly Miss Ella. She is three. She is feisty. She is… a wee little diva who loves princesses and dress up and despises the camera? Yep, yep and YEP. She definitely made me work for the smiles, but her session was a success none the less!

Sneak Peek… {milestone} Kiernan

Another baby has grown up and hit the one year mark! This is the third time we’ve seen little lass Kiernan; first as an adorable baby bump, then as an amazingly beautiful newborn. Today she is back as a sweet tempered, almost walking on her own one year old. During her session, the weather was great, she was great, and even mommy and daddy were great! All around success if you ask me.

Spring has finally shown up in Seattle and I am all aflutter with one amazing family session after another. Up tonight is a baby planner pulling in for his 6 month session. Remember Kellan’s 3 month session? Well, prepare to have your socks knocked off because this little man is back and better than ever!

We met up last Sunday at my new favorite field in Mill Creek and he was a complete gem for over an hour. Mommy Kayti really rocked it out with fabulous wardrobe choices and daddy Fred brought on the baby smiles. Team work at its best for sure. Check out their extra big sneak peek below!

Sneak Peek… {maternity} Waiting on Bryson

Back in early November, I had the pleasure of photographing my wonderful friends, their daughter and future son. The photo shoot was wonderful fun and we got to break the news to all their friends and family about the latest pregnancy via photos from their fall family session. They’ve also been seen on my blog before last year and the year before.

The latest session, and the sneak peek we are debuting today, is from Sydney’s maternity session for baby Bryson. We had some perfect spring weather and a nice hour together making some more memories for their family. I get the honor of photographing baby B’s birth and then newborn photos in a few weeks. Let’s just hope he stays still and cooks a little longer so the baby shower I’m throwing this Friday isn’t missing the guest of honor!
