As a Kirkland newborn photographer, my goal with each lifestyle newborn photography session is to capture the real moments that happen when you least expect them. Toddlers, especially, are the funniest little creatures and their antics are what truly makes my job SO much fun.
This family contacted me this past summer to document their new family of 4 once their son Maddox was born. They truly loved the idea of a Lifestyle Newborn Session, and I couldn’t have been happier to bring it to life!

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!

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.

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!

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.
