As a Seattle maternity photographer, it’s wonderful when your best friend asks you to capture her own maternity photos! We connected over our boys and their love for Transformers toys, our mutual love for photography, and our puny statures. She was already super pregnant and soon to give birth with her 3rd–Alice, whose grand entrance I was blessed to be able to capture as my very first attempt at being a birth photographer.
When my friend told me she was pregnant again this past winter, I admit, I was shocked. A NEW BABY IS COMING! Commence the impatience and excitement.
Fast forward to TODAY. Little Clara is soon to be born. Probably today, maybe tomorrow (though for my dear friend’s sake, I hope it’s today.)
I’ll be waiting in that room, right alongside her, and I couldn’t be more happy. Being there for my sweet friend, to cheer her on, and to capture all those first moments of Clara’s life–is my idea of a perfect day. Seattle Birth Photographer + Most Awesome Friend + New Baby = Pure Bliss.
Clara, we are all ready for you to arrive.

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!

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.

As a Seattle birth photographer, I can honestly say that birth photography is all about the story. We capture so many moments and feelings, from fear, to excitement, nervousness, elation, worry, and love. My job is to capture all these small details. Details that you would otherwise have forgotten, or missed entirely. When you and your spouse/significant other are focused on the laboring and birthing process, I will be there to ensure that the small moments are captured. As a fly on the wall, I carefully plan each photo, waiting for the perfect time to click the shutter. Your baby’s first photos will be clear and in focus–dad’s hands will likely be shaking from the emotions flooding through him. Often there are things you would have liked to be photographed, but in the blur of post-birth happenings, so many moments become missed opportunities for photos.
A few months ago, I had the extreme honor and pleasure to witness the birth of Nova–a beautiful, long awaited and desired, SURPRISE baby girl! Up until the very end, we were wondering if this sweet baby would be a He or a She. Look carefully in one of the photos, and you will notice a clue. As soon as I saw this detail, I knew I had to include it in this mother’s birth story.
