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.

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.
