Shelford. family

This sunshine filled shoot was originally supposed to be just a family shoot until Marissa & Connor found out they are expecting!! Taking pregnancy announcement photos and capturing the excitement of their family’s newest adventure was an exciting honor to be a part of! Also, their girl Brooke- totally won my heart over with her blue bow, blonde curls and independent spirit. This shoot was full of giggles, high fives and chasing bunnies around the park- it couldn’t have been more fun!

Connor & Marissa, congratulations for a new baby on the way and growing this beautiful family of yours!

Jeremy & Ashley. family

Jeremy & Ashley’s family lifestyle shoot featured none other than their new baby girl, Rosalynd, better known as Rosie! By the way, this is also my sister, brother-in-law and niece!! (and I mustn’t forget Rosie’s canine brother- Koa 🙂 )

It has been incredible watching my sister turn into a mother. Ashley is a driven, skilled and intelligent business guru and like all children do, Rosie has brought her mother’s compassionate, nurturing side to even greater depths. And it is craaazy cute watching Jeremy melt over his daughter, you can tell he’s becoming more and more wrapped around her tiny 3 month old finger!

Munoz. family

Mini sessions in tree farms are a splendid thing! I had so much fun re-uniting with an old co-worker, Amanda, for a family holiday session 🙂 Amanda and Miguel have two of thee cutest daughters, Aria and Maryanna -I was frantically shooting as many shots of Maryanna eating those ornaments as I could!! Too cute! Happy Holidays, Munoz family! 🙂

Haughian. family

I was so excited to do a family session for the Haughian family this holiday season! My husband and I have been family friends with Nick and Jessica for a few years now and absolutely love this family (Nathan and I still quote some of Logan’s hilarious battle cries!)  They are celebrating their newest edition, baby-brother Lincoln and it was so much fun watching the two older siblings, Lucy and Logan, smother him with kisses!

Westerman. family

Pike’s Place Market and the Seattle waterfront was such a vibrant and lively place to capture the Westerman’s family photos last weekend! This character filled urban market seems to shout the Westermans’ name. I even heard Ashley making nostalgic comments of being back in the heart of a city; and chasing her and Brennan’s two boys, Vincent and Quinn, around the pier was just pure joy!

Brennan, Ashley, Vincent & Quinn -It was such a blast and such a pleasure being able to capture some beautiful moments of your family 🙂 Thank you!

 

 

 …After snapping all these amazing photos my husband and I took advantage of the trip and claimed a chowder bread bowl, walking the streets enjoying an evening to ourselves! It’s funny, Pike’s place doesn’t seem to change much, but I never bore of walking through the same vendors’ stands and perusing the same trinkets found through their many layers of shops!

Milham. family

The Milham’s are such a beautiful family! I met Becky through our women’s bible study and was instantly drawn to her bubbly and humorous personality. She is so fun and I loved spending the day with her three charming kiddos and husband. After a last minute location change (that darn Mukilteo Light House Festival taking over our beach and parking lot! 😉 ) we spent our time at Harborview Park in Everett snapping some photos and playing tag 🙂

Aria Turns 1!

Aria is alll girl 🙂 and I think it shows how fun the both of us had taking her cake smash shoot! I was in love with her sweet brown eyes and curls!!

On September 8th this little lady turns one year old! Happy Birthday Aria!!

Orion Turns ONE!

Orion is such a cutie!! This big guy turns one year old August, 20th!

He is such an active boy, taking his first steps at 7 months old-and a bit of a dare devil as he stood on his rocking chair like a little surfer (making me nervous but I think mom was used to it by now 😉 ) Happy Birthday Orion, you are a little hunk!

Josiah. newborn

Josiah’s story is one of speed and excitement! Noah and Rachel found out they were going to be parents to a brand new baby boy less than two weeks before they brought him home. In the brief time they had, the Gross family started preparing for Piper’s new baby brother when Josiah Nash, born July 3rd, decided to make things even more exiting, making his debut 3 days early! Weighing a heathy 7lbs 8oz, this boy gave me crazy baby fever!

 Congratulations Noah, Rachel and Piper!

Baby Richardson Pregnancy Announcement

Congratulations to the Richardson family for baby #2 on its way!! Big Brother, Oliver wore his custom t-shirt proudly and brought “baby” (the ultrasound photo) around the beach with him as he explored. He was crazy cute in his little orange chinos and Sperrys, I was in heaven!

Dad left on deployment days before Ariel (mom) even found out they were expecting. I felt privileged to be able to help her celebrate their exciting news! Congrats guys, from one mom to another, I’m so excited for the blessing of a brand new baby on it’s way!

{Due December!}
