2014 mini-sessions - Seattle Family Photographer

Wow! I had the best time in December photographing a number of Seattle families over a two weekend mini-session blitz. I love looking over these images and remembering each family's energy - their smiles and laughter. If you don't have the time or money to book a photographer for an entire portrait session, a mini session is a great solution! I spent 20 minutes with each family - enough time to capture real smiles and interaction, but not enough time for little ones to get restless.

As much as I love a slow paced session on a summer evening, when it comes to the fading light of fall/winter, I am all about a quick shoot and a fast turn around! Did you all have your portraits made this year? I must admit, I did not.

Cobbler's children and all....

Photos of my kids do exist though! If you're interested in learning more about me and my family, here is a link to my personal blog and a pinky swear for a new post in the coming week.

So much thanks to all my clients, past and future - it is my absolute pleasure to work with you.

Ro Family - Seattle Family Photographer

I love watching this family grow! I first met the Ro's when Lucy was just a newborn and it has been my pleasure to photograph them a number of times over the years. In these photos (as well as the previous ones) it is clear to see that over time children grow and personalities emerge, while love remains the constant that holds everyone together.

Thanks guys - I'm looking forward to next time!

Sahir Newborn Shoot - Seattle Photographer

The afternoon I photographed this beautiful family was warm and sunny - a perfect end-of-summer sort of weekend in Seattle. Abhi and Elisha welcomed me warmly into their home and I first met Baby Sahir as he nursed contentedly in the arms of his lovely mother. The room was familiar in the way that all newborn rooms are - carefully folded burp cloths stacked amongst packages of yet unopened, untried trappings of baby life. An unused crib full of gifts for the new little prince.

We chatted about the birth, about the adjustment to parenthood, about excitement and exhaustion. As I began photographing, the love and devotion of parents to their child unfolded naturally before me. This is part of my job I really enjoy. It is my privilege to witness these early days when it takes two to change a diaper and swaddling the babe is a joint activity. Tired eyes are full of wonder as we all admire his flawless features; his dimples and ready smiles. Baby Sahir is a perfect addition to this world, and I'm glad I was there to document his beginning.
