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.

Lifestyle sessions are soul-food. Nothing beats a calm, beautiful session in a home environment. It adds so much dimension to the story to be able to snap away at small details, and witness moments like these that will become some of my client’s fondest memories. What do these images tell me? That an already beloved little girl is soon bound to make her grand entrance into this world…. and I can’t wait to meet her.
As the gloomy weather in our area continues, being able to offer in-home lifestyle family sessions means that I can continue providing my clients the beautiful images they want and deserve. As a photographer, that means the world to me. We shouldn’t be bound by weather–there are so many great moments to be discovered in your very own home.

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.

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! 🙂
