Temus Family - Seattle Family Photographer

The Temus family is so dear to my heart! I was roommates with Katie in college and we had many wonderful adventures together. I was privileged to photograph two of their three daughters' weddings, have documented the newborn days of sweet Charlie and been a welcome guest at multiple dinners at the home where Chuck and Marti raised all these amazing children. Congratulations to Joe and Jessica who will be wed at Christmas time! Taking photographs for families over numerous years is such a special treat for me. I love to watch the grandkids grow, catch up with the grown children in my generation and get a warm hug from Marti - ever the mother and caregiver of this great clan. Thanks so much for having me out to your home - the privilege is always mine.

I have been a busy busy photographer here in the season of family photos - I've got lots more to post, so check back all week for more photos and send me an email if you're interested in participating in a mini-session this weekend (Saturday Nov. 21st)!

Gillenwater-Patel Family - Seattle Family Photographer

This lovely family came to me through a local school auction. They purchased the photo session I had donated and it was such a pleasure to meet them! They gave me a warm welcome into the school community we've joined this year as my own daughter enters kindergarten. And for a location they chose the very playground where their children play every day! I just loved watching these girls light up and get right into their element on the monkey bars and slides. It's fun to note the little details that make it into each family's shoot. Missing teeth, a favorite stuffy posed front and center, bare feet and nail polish. I love capturing the every day life of my clients.

Baby T's Birth - Seattle Birth Photographer

Oh, the squishy baby cheeks - it's too much for me to handle! Baby T came to us by C-section. It was the right call for Mom and for Baby. And while I wasn't in the room when he took his first breath, it was still my pleasure to photograph these first minutes of T with his family. I love looking at these images and seeing the intense work of labor written on a mother's face simply melt into the most joyful smiles. Cuddles from a brand new baby - there's nothing better in the world.
