Sweet little, smiley girl… that is whom this sneak peek is for! I met Audrey and her mama and daddy last weekend to soak up a little bit of summer and capture some images to celebrate her half birthday. Though it was near bedtime, this little princess held out and gave us a good 45 minutes before calling it quits. She did great! Enjoy the images…

Cloud Fishing

Cloud fishing? Yes. Cloud fishing. Upon my arrival at the selected photo shoot location, I found it to be already occupied by a very interesting individual doing ‘experiments’ among other things. He seemed harmless enough, and there weren’t any small children in the extended family who was to be photographed, so I proceeded with the session. During the entire session, this mysterious stranger seemed to be plucking things out of the sky… ‘cloud fishing’ as one of the guys put it. A very interesting night to be sure!

This photo shoot was to celebrate the parent’s 40th wedding anniversary. FORTY years! WOW! I think that the gift of an updated family portrait is nothing short of perfect. Well done, family. Well done.

This last one may be technically imperfect, and totally out of focus, but I love it nonetheless.

Brisk… at Golden Gardens

Seattle Baby Photographer

It was a windy, chilly, SUNNY evening, right about bed time, down at Golden Gardens in Seattle, WA. Three attractive, but a tad under dressed for the ‘summer’ weather, people sit huddling together trying to stave off chattering teeth…

THIS is the exact description of my latest shoot with sweet Kellan and his parents. It was COLD. And WINDY. Kellan held on for about 20 minutes and then it was all over. Still, we ended up with quite a few keepers and Kellan will be getting the special treat of another little session by a (wind protected) creek next week. Check out our Golden Gardens images below!

Little Tea Party

Everett Child Photographer

I love partnering with families over the course of years to make memories for their family. The Tiegs family is one of those I feel blessed to work with. I met up with them last weekend for their fourth session with CYE Photography. Watch them grow over the years: baby Mya’s miracle session and family session, Mya’s 18 month session, and their extended family session at the boardwalk.

Julie, mama, always has wonderful ideas and inspiration for each session. The theme this time around, besides just family images, was vintage tea party! Being a mom of only sons, this idea hit me in just the right place. I even got around to repainting my boys’ table and chairs set just for these girls to enjoy and it was a hit! Check out their wonderful images below.

Last week my boys, a friend, her kids, and I went on a mini vacay to Pacific Beach, WA. We stayed at the SUPER cute Coastal Nest Cottage in Moclips, WA which is owned and operated by the fabulous Lisa McElliott, also owner of SeaWorthy Home and Saltwater Cottage. While enjoying the beach, the excellent couldn’t-ask-for-more accommodations, and the time away from home, I met up with Lisa and her brood of 3 kids: Ryan, Finn, & sweet Reagan. I also managed to, with the help of those three, force Lisa into a few snaps too. Worth it, for sure.

Check back later for a full review (with images!) of the Coastal Nest.

Because it goes by so fast…

Time that is. This is a very special sneak peek for Kurt, Carlene and Kole.

Kurt’s parents, Roy and Carolyn, lived across the street from my family and they were the kind of neighbors you dream about; always have a cup of sugar, will get your mail when you are on vacation, will come over and watch your kids in a pinch when your oldest jumps off the bed and hurts his foot and has to go the ER and your mother-in-law isn’t quite to the house yet but you have to leave NOW and need someone for just 15 minutes to watch your other kid and the 4 extras running around the house… OK, maybe that last one is just me.

But, I digress. Did you catch up above when I said that Roy and Carolyn WERE the kind of neighbors you dream about? Yes. They don’t live at the house across the street anymore. Now, they live together in heaven instead. Roy passed away first (from lung cancer) and Carolyn only made it 32 days after he was gone and she joined him (also lung cancer).

So. Two weeks ago I photographed one of their sons and his family. They pulled up in Roy’s black truck. I half expected Kurt to be sporting a red and white striped rugby pullover, a baseball cap, and Adidas sandals. We honored both Roy and Carolyn in Kurt, Carlene and Kole’s photo shoot.

Just as it should be.

A big announcement.

After weeks of knowing, waiting and rescheduling — the cat is out of the bag! Tom, Sydney and Taylin (whom we saw last year and the year before) will be welcoming a new addition in May of 2012. I was so honored to be able to help them break the news with a few special images from their family session last weekend that debuted on Facebook the evening of their photo shoot… 50 congratulatory comments and likes hit their pages within a few hours — what fun!

Are you pregnant but it is still under wraps and want to break the news in style? Maybe soon to be engaged and want to have the moment when you surprise your soon-to-be fiancee with a ring captured in images? Let me know! I’d love to make your special experience even more amazing!

Now… on to the Ross family’s amazing images!

Sneak Peek… {family} Tony, Lindsey & Emma | Lynnwood Family Photographer

Emma is back!

The first time we saw her was going on 2 years ago when she turned one and had an awesome cake smash. Then, last fall we got together for a quick and sweet family session. This evening, she is back again showing off the spoils from her annual photo appointment/play date. Photographing this family is a real treat for me… Tony, Emma’s daddy, is my 6 months older cousin whom I spent a lot of time with growing up and still have a fondness for. He scored a super fab wife in Lindsey and their little miss is spunky, sweet and fun. Check them out below!

Vivienne is back! And she LIKES me this time!! I’ve photographed Viv and her family 4 (?) times now. Besides newborn and maternity, she has NOT like me. AT ALL. Well, this time she was all smiles and cuddles! She sat on my lap, cheesed when prompted and was an all around peach. V&J, you can bring her around any time!
