As a Redmond WA maternity photographer, I want to make sure that each woman who comes to me feels beautiful when looking at her photographs. You may not be too happy with your body while it’s changing so drastically, but my job is to show the beauty that is evident to everyone around you.
It’s true–you really do glow when you’re pregnant. There’s a luminescence to your skin, and you often walk around with a tiny hint of a secret smile on your lips, long before you start to show your secret to the world.
For Erin, it really shows through the photos from her Snoqualmie maternity session. We waded in a creek near Fall City, WA and got a bit wet, and then ended the evening in Snoqualmie while watching a herd of elk march across an open field. It was the perfect summer maternity session, and it was a magical ending to a beautiful season.
Being a Redmond WA birth photographer is also a true blessing, and I never get tired (well, actually I get exhausted) of the stories I get to watch unfold, knowing that I am one of the very first to meet a brand new person. In just a few short weeks, I’ll have the honor to be present during the birth of Erin’s first child.

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 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!

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.

One of the greatest parts of this profession is getting to meet and snuggle with brand new little people. How exciting that I get to document some of their first days of life in this wide world, and witness their expressive personalities. Baby Aveena smiled more than any other neighbor I’ve ever seen. It makes me wonder: Who will Aveena become, and what wonderful things will she accomplish? Perhaps she will grow to be a loving nurse, providing care to our society through touch and through medicine. Or, maybe a teacher, scientist, fashion designer, athlete, or astronaut. The world is her limit–unless you count the expanse of space.
Aveena, I wish you a life full of wonder, happiness, experiences, and discovery.
Welcome to the world.

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.
