Pregnancy portraits at McCollum Park | Maternity Photographer Seattle

Maternity Photographer Seattle

I met this beautiful family last fall, shortly before their second baby was due. They had recently moved here, and in the midst of a move and a job change, completely forgot about scheduling pregnancy portraits! Fortunately, I had some room in my schedule and was able to fit them in for a mini maternity session. They were looking to incorporate a Pacific Northwest feel to celebrate their new home, so we headed over to McCollum Park. We were blessed with some absolutely gorgeous weather, and the sun shone so beautifully between the trees. There were some really lovely areas to stop and take portraits along the trails.

At 16 months, this soon to be big sister was busy toddling about, but loved showing me where the baby was in her Mama’s belly. She is going to be a great big sister!

I can’t wait to share their newborn images with you soon!

May 10 on 10: Personal Project | Seattle Photographer

A few weeks ago, I headed up to Roozengaarde in Mt Vernon to photograph a friend/client’s kids with a beautiful backdrop of tulips. After our session, we were walking around and viewing the tulips, and it occurred to me that these beautiful flowers would make a perfect addition to this personal project! We managed to time our session and subsequent walk around the fields and gardens for an evening when the blooms were gorgeous, the crowds were non-existent, and the weather mostly cooperated. While we got a few raindrops when we first arrived, the rain held off and we had a beautiful night. Even the kids had a blast looking at the flowers and taking their own pictures on their Mom’s phone!

This project is part of a circle blog. After you finish here, head over to see what Sharleen has been up to for her May 10 on 10!

Cherry Blossoms and a bridge | Lynnwood Family Photographer

As a Lynnwood family photographer, I absolutely love getting to see families throughout the year for multiple sessions. Last spring was my second session of the year with these two adorable children. As it was nearer to Alandra’s birthday, the focus of our session was one her, but Dresden managed to sneak in for a few portraits as well! We headed over to the UW Arboretum in Seattle on this gorgeous day. We had previously had a session here a few years ago, when the kids were smaller. So, of course, we had to seek out the bridge and grab another running shot to see how much they had changed!!

Not only was the bridge a cool feature of our portraits, we found some gorgeous cherry blossoms, and as we were wandering the paths, found some gorgeous foliage and logs to sit on. It’s always a pleasure to photograph these children!

Benjamin – 1 year milestone | Bothell Cake Smash Photographer

Bothell Cake Smash Photographer

It’s always amazing how quickly baby’s first year flies by! My beautiful friend, Michal, brought her son, Benjamin over to my North Bothell studio for a cake smash session. Last time this adorable boy was in my studio was for his newborn session. It was so much fun to see how much he’s grown this year! Not sure how Benjamin would feel about the cake, we made sure to grab some images before bringing the cake out. This ended up being good, since he wasn’t quite sure what to make of it!

Happy Birthday, Benjamin!!

P.S. This gorgeous cake was from Central Market and was so delicious!!

Some awesome missionaries | Mukilteo Family Photographer

Mukilteo Family Photographer

I have known Ryan and Diana for a few years now – I met them in our Sunday School class at our church, but they are also missionaries with Cru! This is a ministry near and dear to my heart, since I participated in many of their events when I was in school (of course, they were known as Campus Crusade for Christ back then!)

When Diana approached me about updating their family portrait, I couldn’t wait to give back! It took a few months for our schedules to align, but one absolutely gorgeous day in June, we headed over to North Creek Park for their session.
