Downtown Seattle is quite the trek from my house, but when a client suggests having their shoot there, I can’t ever say no. There is just something so fun & unique about going downtown. So many interesting people, locations, and backdrops! And especially Pike Place Market, I mean, it’s the first place people think of when they think of Seattle. So I’m always down to shoot there! 🙂

Devon + Cole are expecting baby number 2, but this time a little boy! I am so stoked for them, and big sister Callie! But while we’re waiting, here’s a sneak peek of their maternity family session!

I can’t believe Mother’s Day is just around the corner! And being a Mom of 2 little ones, I know how important this special day is! And it absolutely should be celebrated!! I can’t think of a better way to honor the relationship between a Mother & her children, than by capturing those special moments on camera, to save forever!

And as much as I LOVE family pictures, this season, I want to offer a little something just for the Mama’s out there!

Introducing the Mom + Me Mini Sessions! 

Here are the details (please read thoroughly!)

  • The shoot will last for roughly 15 minutes.
  • You will choose your favorite 4 images, which will be made available for digital download.

Book your session today!! After you purchase your session, please e-mail me with your name, your kid(s) name’s, & preferred shoot date! My goal is to try and schedule several mini’s on the same day 🙂

The temps might be dropping a little bit, but there is still so much to love about this time of year! The leaves are changing color, and falling to the ground, which makes a beautiful backdrop for photos!

We actually got rained out of our original session date, but luckily, the weather cooperated for us the next day and we were able to reschedule! This cute family are actually returning clients, and it’s so fun to watch their little boy grow! He’s got the sweetest personality, and the silliest, most endearing “cheese face” I’ve ever seen!
