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.

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!

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.

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.

Your big brother is very happy and excited that you have arrived.

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! 🙂

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of capturing memories for the Landry family in Kirkland, WA. Their boys were scrumptious and full of smiles. Juanita Bay park is truly a beautiful place. It was a gorgeous evening–although bittersweet due to fires in the east.
Our Seattle area skies are currently filled with a slightly smokey haze, due to the record breaking wildfires plaguing our Eastern Washington neighbors. My prayers are with the firefighters, volunteers, and everyone affected.

I have finally fulfilled a personal photographic goal of mine: A Beach Maternity Session. When my dear friend invited me along to this session, I was having trouble holding in my excitement. Once we arrived to our location, we were all simply floored by the beauty of this Seattle beach.
Our subjects were such a delight to photograph, and we couldn’t have asked for a better evening. The little man you see below is so happy and excited to become a Big Brother to a Little Brother, and his mama was glowing. What a truly happy, beautiful family–and a pure treasure to photograph.
Thanks to my dear friend and mentor, Tiffany Mae for inviting me along to this session. Tiffany is a fantastic mentor, offering online video workshops for learning Lightroom.

What can I say? Perfection. Beautiful subjects, and a stunning location, complete with a breathtaking PNW Sunset! This family session was SO much fun–as most of them are, but this was was special because I happen to love this beautiful family! I am truly blessed beyond measure to know them and to be their “Auntie!”
