{Big fun in the big city} Seattle Area Childrens Photographer

February 27th, 2012

We’re very lucky that we live near the gorgeous city of Seattle. Not only do we get to do cool things like see Santa’s Space Rocket in the Space Needle, but just walking around we can watch the ferries cross Elliott Bay, see sea lions, and even just run around, and dance like no one […]

 

We’re very lucky that we live near the gorgeous city of Seattle. Not only do we get to do cool things like see Santa’s Space Rocket in the Space Needle, but just walking around we can watch the ferries cross Elliott Bay, see sea lions, and even just run around, and dance like no one is watching. Well, at least, that is what I imagine goes through my boys’ minds whenever we take them downtown shopping. 🙂

 

What’s a visit to Seattle without visiting Pike Place market?

Here are the boys in the little park right across from the Market. You can see my youngest is jumping in glee

You thought I was joking about the dancing like no one was watching, didn’t you?

We found this cool mosaic, where they continued their mad improv dancing.

 

Cheeky smiles all around!

 

This is on the pedestrian bridge above 1st avenue. My kids love to jump.

And this is what a sibling shot looks like at my house – yes, that is younger brother photobombing older brother’s jump shot

 

Overall, I think they had a good time and it was a fun memory. And at the end of the day, that’s all that really matters.

{Baby W. Three Weeks Old} Seattle Area Newborn Photography

February 21st, 2012

Baby W was a dream baby. He pretty much slept and let me pose him any which way for the entire session. The family was so laid back and go with the flow, even when we had the inevitable accidents which happen when you hold a naked newborn. I also captured one of my favorite […]

 

Baby W was a dream baby. He pretty much slept and let me pose him any which way for the entire session. The family was so laid back and go with the flow, even when we had the inevitable accidents which happen when you hold a naked newborn. I also captured one of my favorite sibling poses ever in this session, with Baby W. and big brother. Thank you for letting me into your home and capturing these sweet moments with Baby W!

 

Meet Baby W.

He was a looooooooooong baby. So adorable and squishy though.

Contemplative baby.

These cute hats were knitted by Baby W’s aunt.

Adorable frog baby!

The sweet daisies were placed there by big brother

Big brother and Baby W.

He slept through pretty much the entire session and let me pose him

The entire family!

This week’s challenge at I Heart Faces is, appropriately enough, Hearts. I think this is one of my favorite shots of the boys ever. The background is just an old red fleece blanket I  had them lie down on. I love how their hands and toes just touch. Click on the link, or the camera […]

{Two Sisters} Seattle Area Child Photographer

January 31st, 2012

I’m a out loud talker. If I’m in the grocery store, I’m the person talking about what’s on my list, and where can I find the red wine vinegar. My husband makes fun of me for doing this, but even he concedes that when you ask for something, you have a better chance of someone […]

 

I’m a out loud talker. If I’m in the grocery store, I’m the person talking about what’s on my list, and where can I find the red wine vinegar. My husband makes fun of me for doing this, but even he concedes that when you ask for something, you have a better chance of someone answering your question than if you never ask aloud. The age old adage, “ask and you shall receive”. Along that vein, a friend of mine was posting on a social media site that all her parents wanted for Christmas was a picture of both her girls together in the dresses they received from grandma. There were several problems with getting the picture as a) my friend works out of the house, b) the girls are both under the age of three and dragging them to the mall seemed like a chore and c) it was about a week before Christmas. I offered to come over to her home and take pictures of her girls for her. I’m way behind in my blogging, since these pictures were taken last month, but it was a win-win situation for everyone. Thank you for letting me photograph your adorable daughters!

 

Meet Older Sis. She was a hoot to capture on camera, and was so fun!

 

Ok, sit primly in this chair? I can do that for you, Ms. Photographer.

 

Little Sister was a tougher nut to crack to get to smile at me.

 

Look at those eyes! So soulful.

 

Older Sis was a dream, she pretty much did anything I asked. I love her expression here! It came out a lot.

 

But oh so adorable.

 

I finally coaxed a real smile from Little Sister

 

Oh look, I got them both into the same frame! Aren’t those dresses just precious?

 

And a last picture of a pretty pretty pink princess.

{Oh So Silly} Seattle Area Child Lifestyle Photographer

January 30th, 2012

So picture this scene. I’ve got the boys fed. Everyone’s gone potty. They aren’t fighting with each other. No lego robot wars are going on, or any stealth ninja Jedi swordfights. They even agree to sit on my little photography setup next to each other and I think, oh goodie! I’m finally going to get […]

 

So picture this scene. I’ve got the boys fed. Everyone’s gone potty. They aren’t fighting with each other. No lego robot wars are going on, or any stealth ninja Jedi swordfights. They even agree to sit on my little photography setup next to each other and I think, oh goodie! I’m finally going to get a nice shot of the boys together!

Then I snap the picture and get this. Ah well. I can always try another day. As much as I love the posed shots, I think the silly shots show off their personality much better.

Baby B. is the daughter of one of my closest friends, and I was so excited to be able to photograph her in all her newborn goodness.  She came three weeks early but was still sleepy and squishy for the session.  My favorites were of her and big brother {Master J.} who I have photographed before as well.  I love sibling shots, when everyone is being cooperative!  Here’s a peek at {Baby B.}, I hope you find her as beautiful as I did!

Meet beautiful {Baby B.}

Such a lovely, cloth diapered baby!

My favorites are capturing moments like this between mommy and her new daughter

Look at those pouty lips

What’s better than kisses from big brother and dad?

Such a sweet look from big brother here.  I also love his hand on her back

All snugged up in daddy’s hands

A quiet moment between mom, dad, and newest addition

Look at all the toesies and feet!

I photographed {the D. Family} this summer to celebrate their adorable boys turning three and one respectively.  In my experience three year olds are the best age to photograph!  Master T proved me right, and was a total ham for my camera.  I loved seeing his personality come out in the pictures.  Master D was your typical one year old and through lots of bribery, he allowed me to photograph him as well.  Here’s a peek into their session!

Meet {Master T}, age 3 and proud of it!

Hello folks!  I took a break this summer as I spent more time with my family, and tried to adjust the balance between doing photography sessions and family life.  It’s been a challenge at times, and I thank everyone for their patience this summer!

Hello folks!  I took a break this summer as I spent more time with my family, and tried to adjust the balance between doing photography sessions and family life.  It’s been a challenge at times, and I thank everyone for their patience this summer!

I got back into the action photographing this delicious newborn boy last week.  He was very alert and awake, and poor little bub just wanted to nurse from his mama.  It made for a interesting photo shoot, but we got some beautiful awake baby shots before we finally got some fun sleeping baby shots.  Introducing baby boy P!

I had the pleasuring of meeting this family at Lincoln Park  in West Seattle for our photoshoot.  The mom had graciously responded to my inquiry about photographing her twin daughters for my portfolio.  I’m still working on building my skills in photographing siblings, and these cute one year old sisters gave me a run for my money!  Lincoln Park is a beautiful location, so we let the kids run around and I snapped away as many shots of them together as I could.  I was kicking myself as I got to the park as I realized I had forgotten my bag of toys, whistles, and snacks to entice the kids to look at my camera at home!  Alas, a lesson well learned.  Here’s a sneak peek of their photos.

Meet {Miss D} and {Miss E}.  Don’t let this fool you, they rarely both looked at the camera at the same time for me.

I think she was lecturing me here

Almost a smile

I convinced them to play peek a boo behind the log with me

Their mom bribed them to sit still with snack foods.  I have a lot of shots with one of them eating.  🙂
