Take a Peek: We are Family ~ B Family

I had the distinct privilege to photograph my long time friend with her son. Her boy is so amazingly adorable, and such a ham! I love that he wore his cowboy hat and boots to their session - they are so him.

Despite how cold it was outside and the rain that eventually made us call it quits, they were real troopers. Their adoration of each other pulls at my heart strings. You are one strong Mama, Ms. K and I love you guys!

Take a Peek: B + C Wedding

I love weddings.

I truly, truly enjoy them. I cry at EVERY wedding. Sometimes it's just a little trickle down the cheek, other times it's just wet eyes.

Then there are weddings like the one I was honored to do yesterday. This was a family wedding, and it truly was. Every one was involved, and everyone was happy to be a part of it.

B & C joined their families yesterday in the most intimate ceremony I have been a party to. It was quite moving. (As my Creative Director/Assistant said: "It's like they have little hearts floating over their heads". And it was SO true.)

And talk about beautiful, white and red and silver and deliciousness.

Well, here - judge for yourself.

So lovely.

Thanks B & C for trusting me with your most precious memories.

Take a Peek: We are Family ~ The B Family

Oh, B Family.
Where do I even start???
This family holds a special place in my heart. Little Miss M, is my son's "bef fwend". Her mommy is one of mine. She is also my assistant/creative director. Daddy loathes getting his picture taken, however this time he was VERY cooperative. And last but not least, Little Man L...those cheeks!!!

I did mean the ones on his face. But these ones are pretty darn cute too!

Thank you B Family for trusting me with your photos and for holding such a special place in my heart, and holding me in yours.

Take a Peek: We are Family ~ The L Family

Hello Babies!!!

I photographed the littlest L a few weeks back when she was about a week old. She's wasn't a lot bigger today, but she was accompanied by her sister and brother. These kids hold a special place in my heart...they are my godkids.

Today's session with Daddy was a lesson for all of us. The babies are the boss. In case we weren't sure! :)


Daddy was really laid back and said he just wanted to be sure to have ONE picture of each kid with him, one of the three kids, and one of everybody and he'd be happy. Well, we got more than that, of course so I hope he is pleased (even if he HATES having is own picture taken...what a good sport.)

Take a Peek: We are Family ~ The RG Family

You know, the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the RG family is LOVE. They truly, truly LOVE each other.

Anytime I asked Miss A to sit with her brother, she LOVED him. She would grab him and hug him or hold his hand. The same thing happened when I asked Lil Man N to pose with his mom, he LOVED her. He just latched himself onto her and kissed her! No prompting needed with that little guy.When I asked either of them to sit with mom or dad, LOVE just oozed out of every smile, kiss and embrace!

And seriously? Mom and Dad?? More LOVE. I didn't even have to ask him to kiss her, he just did.


Ahhh...LOVE. It was most definitely in the air today.

Thanks, RG family, for sharing your LOVE for each other with me.

Take a Peek: We are Family ~ The P Family

Wow, what a wonderful opportunity.

I was asked to take family portraits for one of the most beautiful families! With mom and dad, Big Brother P, Little Sister M and Baby E you can't go wrong. This family opened their home to me today and I am so glad they made the choice to have their photos there, as the holiday decorations were enviable!

Well, don't take my word for it...take a look:

Thank you, P Family. I hope you are pleased.

Take a Peek: We are Family ~ B Family

We couldn't have requested better weather for today's family session with the B Family! We were all excited to do their session at Country Village in Bothell. This is the second family I have gotten to photograph there (See also: the M Family from this summer, in the archives), and I love how many location options there are all in one place!

I feel so special to be able to photograph them again this year, and to watch little man A grow and grow. He has grown so much since last year's photos!

I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!
Thank you, B Family, for allowing me to be a part of your growth and changes!
