Lovely Family of 3

This family faced the chilly cold weather for a short family session last Sunday.  This sweet baby girl was all smiles!  So hard to believe that it was cold, when looking at the happiness on their faces.

The Whiting Family!

I can’t say enough how much I love this profession, but I REALLY LOVE WHAT I DO!  This was by far the most fun session I’ve had in a very long time.  The handsome young man you see in these photos just might have something to do with that.  😉

I spent this last Sunday evening with The Perkins Family.  Talk about some Swoon-Worthy family moments!  

Location Scouting in Seattle

One of the best parts of being a family photographer in the Seattle area, is exploring the natural scenery around this marvelous city.  When it comes to photography, the background can make or break an image.  This is when location scouting comes in to play.  Every now and then, I drag a kid or two (of mine) out to a new spot and explore the light and surroundings.  It’s lots of fun, and gives me an excuse to take pictures of my babies.

Recently, I discovered a gem of a park in Seattle.  Tall trees, old historic buildings, fields of wild flowers, and access to a sandy beach area with glorious sunsets.  Take a look at some of my favorite images from this park.  Some of you may even recognize this location.  😉

Sometimes, Bribery Is Worth It.

Last night, the sky was simply beautiful.  My “spidey” sense was tingling, so I grabbed my camera and my daughter and drove around the corner to one of our favorite spots.  Most photographers with children will know about PCS, but in case you don’t, it’s called “Photographer’s Child Syndrome.”  It’s when your children turn into blank stared zombies, or crying banshees, at the mere mention of your camera.  My daughter, being nearly 9 years old (how did that happen!?!?), is typically the staring zombie type.  Last night, I bribed her with Starbucks and a movie date this weekend.  Yep.  That’s what I have to do to get quality photos of my child.  These photos were well worth the bribe.
