This beautiful family was one of my model families back in April. We were so lucky to have a beautiful evening filled with warm sun and a gentle breeze. The kids were having way too much fun running around but we managed to slow them down just enough to get some amazing photos. I am excited to be doing more outdoor photo sessions during sunset in some of my favorite Bothell area’s. I will be posting some mini session details shortly.

A few weeks ago I met up with this beautiful family for a sunset session. The weather was amazing, the kids were adorable and we had such a great time. I am really looking forward to doing more family photo sessions this summer with beautiful golden light in the evenings. The light in these is simply magic.

If you would like to have a sunset session with me, please contact me as soon as possible as availability is very limited and spots fill up quickly.

When your friend and fellow photographer says she wants to check out a location with her daughter and BFF, you go! Even though I live about 3 minutes from this spot, I have never been to it before this night. We were hoping for some amazing golden light, but the clouds got in the way. Still, we managed to get some pretty amazing pictures of these two BFF’s and it made me a little sad at times missing my BFF’s:(

I am so anxious for my family sessions coming up and to get outside! So happy that winter is past us now. Nothing but blue skies and golden light.

Thank you everyone who inquired. I’m so sad I couldn’t pick every family:(

Happy Spring! Oh wait, it’s not quite spring yet, but sure feels like it! Hopefully you are reading this post because you are interested in family photography:)Good news! I am looking to add to my family portfolio and I am seeking some families for

free sessions. These sessions will likely take place mid to late April in the evening with beautiful light. I have a few locations in mind, and will discuss with each family chosen what will work best for everyone. I am looking for 2 or 3 families that have children between the ages of 1 – 13, hopefully at least 2 or 3 kids. You must all be comfortable in front of the camera and be willing to try to follow some what to wear ideas the best you can. These will be full sessions and you will receive 10 digital files with printing rights in return.

A model release must be signed as these images will be on my website etc. If you are interested or know a family in the Seattle area that might be please share this post.

Birthdays.. I’m kind of over them. After 29, they seem more like a countdown than a celebration. My husband however, loves to celebrate my birthday so he said “grab your camera, we’re heading out”. My son was on board with one strict rule; do not take his photo.. 14 year olds I tell ya.. Anyway, we headed first to Larabee State Park which is gorgeous! After climbing around there and people watching, we headed south to Deception Pass State Park. I have never been to either park yet after living here now two and a half years. I am still in awe that all this natural beauty is only an hour drive from home. How lucky are we to live in this amazing place!

So, below is how I spent my birthday. Quietly watching the beauty of the PNW unfold in front of me. Watching people enjoy it as well and photographing them. I kept pinching myself occasionally that this is my backyard.

I am older and wiser today.

I am lucky.

February is one of my favorite months! Now that I’m a die-hard Seahawks fan and football in general, I get pretty amped up with the ” big game “. My birthday also happens to be in February as well although I’m not so keen on getting older, I do still like to have some cake.. So, with that being said, I decided to make February awesome for everyone! Right now, til February 22nd, save $49.00 off of any session booked. Newborn sessions booked, who happen to be born on my birthday February 22nd, will also receive an additional $50.00 off!

* Offer applies to regular Newborn, Family and Maternity sessions only. Not applicable to future mini-sessions.

All you have to do is contact me and get started. A $100 non-refundable retainer is due at the time of booking. These sessions can take place anytime of the year until December 15, 2015.

I have some great things planned for February! It’s my birthday month, and the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl! I admit, until I moved to Seattle from Canada I don’t think I watched 10 minutes of football.

Once I moved here, the Seahawks went on a huge streak and now look at them! I like to think I had a part in their awesome streak, but no.. They just are awesome! Anyway, while we wait to see the game on February 1st, and I wait to celebrate my birthday on the 22nd,

I am coming up with some great deals and ideas for the month of February. Be sure to like my Facebook page and check back here to see what is coming up. Until then, GO SEAHAWKS!!

No post is good without some kind of photo, so here is my favorite Muppet, Kermit doing his best to cheer on the Seahawks!

Yes, I am a Kermit the Frog fan:)I might have a few Kermit things around the house…
