A Traditional Korean First Birthday Party | Issaquah Family Photographer

Baby crawling on a bed smiling in Issaquah

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

Kirkland family photographer captures photo of a young girl smelling a flower

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

Issaquah family photographer captures moment when young boy is lifted in the air

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.

 

Meet Nolan, a 2016 Leap Year baby!

Newborn baby yawning by Seattle Birth Photographer

I love the excitement of an impending new arrival.  This lovely mama was due for an induction on Monday, February 29th, but woke up to the welcome surprise of her water breaking!   Nolan arrived that afternoon as a Leap Year baby!

As a Seattle family photographer, being able to photograph a brand new, tiny person, is perhaps the most rewarding part of my profession.  Providing these memories for families is just a small part of the joy that fills me during these sessions.  I get to see and hold sweet babies!

Nolan, welcome to this big, crazy world.  Your siblings and parents are beyond excited to have you!   I feel so blessed to be one of the few people to have met you in the first 24 hours of your life.

 

A Perfect Family Session in Bellevue, WA

Typically, I love ALL my sessions.  Very rarely do I have one where I don’t feel like things turned out phenomenally and perfectly.  But super rarely… I have a session where, even nearly a year later, I can’t help but go back to those particular photos and think:  “Dang.  This is one beautiful family, and a session I will remember for all time.”  This is one of those sessions.  My clients become like friends to me, and this family is no exception.  In fact, they started out as friends, and I can honestly say that it was this lovely bunch that inspired my journey.

From maternity photos 5 years ago, to newborn photos, family photos, wedding photos, and now this?!  Talk about awesome.

For their family session, we went to the lovely Larsen Lake Blueberry Farm in Bellevue, WA.  As a Seattle area family photographer, location scouting is something I do regularly, to keep things fresh and unique.  This particular location has so much to offer, from a quaint little cabin, complete with a perfect front porch swing, to a lovely trail that wraps around a pond, and blueberry bushes all around.  Their Spring family photo session was made perfect by the appearance of stunning and vibrant flowers.

*** Erin DuPree Photography is now offering limited Spring family photography sessions in Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland, Bothell, Woodinville, Sammamish, Issaquah, and Seattle, WA.  Sessions begin late March.  Book now to secure your date–these fill fast!

A Joyful Family

Seattle family photographer captures beautiful golden Autumn leaves and a family of four

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.

 

 

A New Big Brother

Newborn Photo

Those first few days are the most precious, and the most fleeting.  Tiny fingers and toes, squishy cheeks, sleepy eyes, and dreamy faces–all so perfect.  A lifestyle newborn photo session is the perfect way to ensure that these memories are tangibly preserved, long after these tiny little moments are gone.  Welcome to the world, baby Ry!  Your big brother is very happy and excited that you have arrived.

Trekking Through the Forest… Beginning with Ice Cream!

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!  🙂

A Boy and his Red Trike

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!  🙂
