Elle + Zeke | Seattle Baby Photographer

You may remember adorable Elle from her 6 month old studio session. For her 9 month session, she brought along the whole family – yes, that includes “big brother” Zeke, the dog! I love when families want to include their pets in their portraits. As a dog owner myself, I know how much a part of the family they can be – my husband and I try to include our dog, Bo, in a family portrait whenever we can 🙂

Zeke was amazing for this entire session. He was really good with Elle, stayed where we put him (except when he discovered my dog’s squeaky duck toy that I brought with me! After that, all he wanted to do was play with the duck  – and even managed to find it when I hid it in my camera bag!!) He even smiled for me!

Elle is just as cute as ever – she is super smiley and has those amazing gorgeous eyes!! She also, like Zeke, stayed right where we put her and smiled. I can’t wait for her 1 year session!

Family photos with 9 month old and dog | Seattle Family PhotographerThis series cracks me up every time I look at it! Zeke is so happy while Elle doesn’t notice him. By the last image, his eyes are saying “Can I get up yet?” He bolted out of my frame just after that shot…haha!
