What a pleasure it’s been photographing this family over the past couple of years! The last time I saw them, Crystal was pregnant with her 3rd child. It’s been so fun watching their family grow, and meeting their daughter a few weeks ago. That’s one of my favorite parts of my job, is being there to witness and help capture the growth and progression of families. It’s truly such an honor.

This year, we went to the Seattle Public Library for our session, and I’m so impressed with how well all of these kiddos did while we were there. I mean, three kids ages 5 and under in a quiet library? That could have gone totally wrong, but they did so awesome. img_0010img_0008

Things have been busy around here, but I’m not complaining! Popping in today to share another recent family session from this past weekend. I’m working overtime to try and get my client’s galleries to them as quick as possible, and in the process, I’m making sure to keep updating the blog! Woo hoo!


This past weekend was jam packed full of sessions, but I absolutely loved it. I got to meet several new families, do an engagement shoot, and a senior session! It was a wonderful weekend. I’m popping in this afternoon to drop off a few sneaks of this family sesh. They totally win the “cute family” award, don’t you think? Their boys are just adorable. Enjoy! 🙂
