Creating Moments in the Dark | Seattle Maternity Photographer

Example of dramatic window lighting indoors

As a Seattle maternity photographer, I often get asked about the weather and how it might affect your session.  Our Seattle Autumn’s tend to be quite dreary and dark, but don’t let that discourage you from your desire to have beautiful maternity photos to document your pregnancy.  As a maternity photographer, I can capture beautifully tender moments with the tiniest amount of light from a single window.  The use of dramatic light can add an interesting dimension to your beloved images.

There’s no need to have a Pinterest home.  These are YOUR moments, and they deserve to be captured.  


Waiting for Clara | Seattle Maternity Photographer

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.

Abby Jack | Kirkland Family Photographer

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!

The Glow of Life | Seattle Maternity Photographer

You deserve to look and feel like a Queen during your pregnancy.  Together, we will go to majestic or hidden places to create jaw-dropping images that will forever leave you breathless.

Lindsey S. | Seattle Maternity Photographer

I am spoiled, as a Seattle maternity photographer, with the gorgeous scenery of our picturesque state.  Venturing a bit farther than my usual area, I drove to Snohomish, WA to meet this lovely lady at McCollum Park–something I try to do with every client.  The park provided to us a beautiful woodland backdrop for her maternity photo session.  We took a walk along the trails and got to know one another a bit, and left with warm smiles.

Beautiful, soft spoken, and with a wonderful smile, I quickly felt like Lindsey and I were old friends.  As a very shy person, that’s an unusual occurrence.  When we met for the first time, I knew this session would be smooth and turn out to be one of my best.

A couple weeks later, with her husband and beautiful daughter, Lindsey shined amidst the tall trees in her royal blue gown.  Could there have been a better color to wear in that forest?  Absolutely not.  This photo session went longer than usual, but we soaked up every last inch of light shining through those trees.  It was wonderful.
