Rainy Seattle Session at Gasworks Park

It started pouring about 5 minutes before this session started. And do you want to know the coolest part? These two didn't even notice. Two-year-old Rhys put on his rain boots and every rain puddle he walked past was better than the last. We had the park to ourselves and spent most of the photoshoot chasing geese, throwing leaves, jumping in puddles, and soaking up the incredibly beautiful bond that this Mother and son have for one another. Rain or shine, I'm so thankful for sessions like this one. 

A Little Reminder

A message to all the Moms and Dads: during our photo session, try not to just stand behind me and beg your kiddos to “smile normally.” Interact with them! Dance with them! Maybe even sing they’re favorite song. Not only will you have more fun, but you will build memories that the little ones will cherish for ages. ❤️

Fritz + Family: 6 month Session

I met this family when their baby was first born and let me tell you - this little guy landed into a pretty amazing crew. This was our 6 month session and due to rainy weather, we decided stayed indoors for most of it. I had so much fun capturing some of their day-to-day activities, (and making sure their dog Bodie didn't take up all the attention.)  I'm still wondering how I got so lucky as to watch the the four of them grow together! 

Nolan + Family: Lifestyle Session

Nolan turned 3 months old last month and I had such good time capturing a little sliver of his life at home. This little man is a CHAMP at tummy time. He has so much personality for his age and such sweet & loving parents. I can't wait to photograph him again in three months! 

Sergeja + Kevin: Family session

I met Sergeja several months ago while she was on a business trip in Seattle and needed someone to watch her 16-month-old son. We immediately clicked but knew our relationship would be short-lived as she headed back to her Bay Area home 2 days later. When I mentioned I'd be traveling to California in February, she asked if we could set up a family shoot!

We met at Tilden Park and had such a fun time together. This little boy is in such awe of the world around him. He fed the animals, crawled on lots of stumps, and was smothered in kisses from his mom and dad! What more could I ask for?

The world works in such strange ways, and I can only hope that someday our paths will cross again.
