Sweet, Darling Girl | Redmond WA Newborn Photographer

Being a Seattle newborn photographer means a lot of driving, which I’m always happy to do for my wonderful client families.  I personally live on the Eastside, so when this wonderful couple contacted me and said they were looking for a newborn photographer in Redmond, it turned out they were super close to my own home!

Their lifestyle newborn session took my breath away.  Their home had beautiful light, and we were even able to have a short session at a local Christmas tree farm for those first Christmas photos as a family of 3!  So many perfect moments were captured with this sweet, darling girl, and her family will be cherishing them for years to come in a beautiful photo album.

Sometimes, a photo session goes SO perfectly, that I honestly cannot believe my eyes.

Expect to see many more lovely images from this couple’s maternity photo session, very soon.

A Traditional Korean First Birthday Party | Issaquah Family Photographer

As an Issaquah Family Photographer, I am often contacted to provide party or event photography, and I squeal a bit on the inside when it happens.  These events are more fun and exciting than a trip to the carnival!  I love my work as a Seattle event photographer.

This sweet little boy had a traditional Korean “Dol” that was such an honor to witness.  It was held in the waterfront Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland, WA, which provided for some beautiful views of the water.

Prior to his grand party, we had a sweet and calm lifestyle family session in their Issaquah family home.  There’s no better way to unleash the personality of these sweet little people, than when they’re having fun with their very own toys!

Abby Jack | Kirkland Family Photographer

As a Kirkland family photographer, cheeky 3 year olds and babies are simply my favorite subjects.  It’s really hard to narrow it down, with all the other beautiful subjects I photograph, but there’s something about their funny personalities that make each and every session pure FUN!  This lovely crew joined me for their family photo session in Kirkland, WA over at Juanita Bay Park.  It’s a lovely location, and definitely a beloved favorite.

Abby & Jack brought their lovely parents along with them (hello, toddlers can’t drive!) to their session, and we had a blast.  The flowers were in bloom, the sun was shining, and a deer joined us, too!

A Morning of Playing | Issaquah Family Photographer

Being an Issaquah family photographer is such a blessing.  It’s such a beautiful area, and filled with stunning places for family photos.

Where would you be the most comfortable for a family photo session?  Is there a particular place that showcases your family and it’s dynamic personality?  When planning a family photo session with clients in the Seattle, WA areas, so often we head to the great outdoors.  This is never a bad or wrong choice.  The results are simply beautiful, and I enjoy these sessions and their outcomes very much, as do my clients.  This year, I’m offering a new approach.

Have you considered having an in-home lifestyle family session?  The photos you see below is just one example of a gorgeous and fun experience I had with a beautiful couple and their handsome (and so sweet) twin 2 year old boys, in their very own home.  Thank goodness we chose this route, because this particular day was one of the worst wind storms of this year.

As you can see below, a lifestyle session allows for so much more versatility.  Your children are more comfortable in their own environment, and are more likely to show genuine smiles while showing me their favorite book (sharks!)  We laughed, we cuddled, we spoke softly, and we played.  Pure, genuine love simply shines through the photos from this session.

 

Lindsey S. | Seattle Maternity Photographer

I am spoiled, as a Seattle maternity photographer, with the gorgeous scenery of our picturesque state.  Venturing a bit farther than my usual area, I drove to Snohomish, WA to meet this lovely lady at McCollum Park–something I try to do with every client.  The park provided to us a beautiful woodland backdrop for her maternity photo session.  We took a walk along the trails and got to know one another a bit, and left with warm smiles.

Beautiful, soft spoken, and with a wonderful smile, I quickly felt like Lindsey and I were old friends.  As a very shy person, that’s an unusual occurrence.  When we met for the first time, I knew this session would be smooth and turn out to be one of my best.

A couple weeks later, with her husband and beautiful daughter, Lindsey shined amidst the tall trees in her royal blue gown.  Could there have been a better color to wear in that forest?  Absolutely not.  This photo session went longer than usual, but we soaked up every last inch of light shining through those trees.  It was wonderful.

Cathleen and Shane – A Wedding on All Saint’s Day

Wedding near Seattle, WA

To date, I have never met a more down to earth, fun, and gentle couple than Cathleen and Shane.  Their soft spoken, tender heart spirits emitted serenity and love through the entire ceremony.  These two lovely people were meant for one another, and it was evident with every glance, and every touch.  Their wedding was uniquely designed to showcase their earthly, loving spirits.  They chose All Saint’s Day, November 1st, to show honor and love to those who had passed and gone before them.  What a beautiful testament to their faith, and their commitment to each other!

They were wed in the Bastyr University Chapel, a beautiful European style chapel, on the grounds of St. Edward Park in Kenmore, WA in an intimate ceremony among family and friends.  As a Seattle wedding photographer, it is such a wonder and delight to be able to witness and document these sacred moments, especially in such a beautiful setting.  (continue reading below…)

 

On to some sad news…  The beautiful grounds of St. Edward Park and the historic seminary building are all set for some possibly huge and disheartening changes.  The grounds are currently up for a proposed land exchange, with the building possibly being renovated into a hotel or resort.  Please, show your support for this beautiful park by attending the February 9th public hearing, which will occur at 6:30 pm at the Kenmore, WA City Hall.  This stunning park needs the support of the public to ensure that this site continues to serve as a serene area for relaxation, play, and hiking.

Wedding Bells on Mercer Island, WA

First time to drive to Mercer Island, and it was for a beautifully sweet wedding between two very lovely people.  Their first dance was filled with happy tears, laughter, and so many smiles of joy!  I’m fairly sure I pulled a muscle in my face from smiling so often.  If I could pick one thing to do for the rest of my life, it would be to witness moments like this.

A Joyful Family

Families like this one make my job as a family photographer SO easy.  The smiles, the laughter, the twirling, and the running.  This was one of the last Autumn sessions of the season.

Since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of living in a place where I can experience all 4 seasons, complete with the glorious colors of fall.  These lovely family photos were taken in Kirkland, WA at the beautiful Saint Edwards Park.  Experiencing these wonderful moments, getting to meet wonderful families, and experiencing the beauty of the outdoors here in our beautiful Pacific North West, is the best job, ever.
