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.

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.

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.

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!

Sunshine, green grass, happy toddler, beautiful family. What more could I ask for? This summer has been filled with more rainy days than I can remember in the last 5 years in the beautiful North West, but it’s made me treasure these sweet summer days.
The Matote family might look a bit different from the outside, but I can’t describe how amazing it was to meet them and witness their love for each other.
Through a personal project, I met the lovely Love and her family while documenting Adoption Family Stories. Here is their story:
We are George, Love and Isaac. Our family came together through adoption after 10 LONG years of infertility. I knew I was meant to be a Mom, and I couldn’t fathom why God would put that desire so deeply in my heart if he wasn’t going to fulfill the promise.
About the same amount of money most people would spend on a new car, we spent on medical testing and fertility treatments, and still no kids. To our surprise, fertility testing revealed my husband had cancer! When we heard the “c” word, all thoughts about children flew out the window. We focused on surgery, treatment and healing. Hubby is well and has been cancer free for over 5 years. Thank you God!
At first, my hubby was not open to the idea of adoption. But after the long and winding journey we were on, I asked him about adoption again. It turns out he had been listening to a radio station featuring adoption stories for a whole month. God had been working on his heart through that radio station, and I didn’t have to say a word.
Our son Isaac came into our family in April 2013. We met him at the hospital when he was 2 days old. We met his birth mom and dad for about half an hour, and they chose us to be his forever family.
We thank God every day for the gift of Isaac, the gift of family. And we hope to add to our family again this year through adoption.

I spent a lovely afternoon with my favorite little boy. He is a spitfire, adorable, and oh so sweet. We found sticks, water bugs, snails, and beautiful flowers along the way.
The forests near Seattle, WA are truly some of the most beautiful. This location was just a short drive from Redmond, WA, so I will be utilizing it for clients in the future! 🙂

We braved some serious mud and cold water last night for this beautiful shot. It was SO worth it! 🙂
Sadly, Rattlesnake Lake (near North Bend, WA) is so sadly depleted. I believe I read that it is the lowest the water level has been in decades.

This sweet little boy is turning 3 years old and he is a bundle of energy and joy. I remember not too long ago it was my own boy’s 3rd birthday. My goodness how the time FLIES by faster than a blink.
That red trike was never far from this little guy, and we had so much fun and laughter together. The weather at Juanita Bay Park in Kirkland, WA was simply perfect for our photo session, too, providing beautiful sunshine to filter through the trees.
My body was sore after this session! With all the squatting, climbing, running, jumping, twirling, skipping and tickling I do, I imagine there’s a good amount of muscle work going on. Talk about a FUN way to exercise! 🙂
