Jaymie & Paul | Engagement | Renton, WA

I first met Jaymie and Paul during this past fall for a seasonal mini session with their cute little one, Eli. We immediately got to talking about about their recent engagement and plans for a 2017 wedding. Before we knew it, they finalized a plan for a November wedding, with me on board!! I am so anxious for their big day. 

We recently met at Gene Coulon Memorial Park in Renton, WA. I think this day was the only clear and sunny day we have had for weeks and weeks. And, it didn't last... rain continues to pour on us every day after. Wow, did we get lucky!! It was a bit chilly, but they were troopers. They even brought Eli along for some cute poses. 

Congratulations, Jaymie and Paul!! Your big day will be here before you know it and I am so very excited to capture more memories for you. Enjoy just some of my favorites!!

Owen | Gas Works Park | Seattle, WA

2 1/2 years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting little Owen and his adorable parents. I clearly remember our conversation as we wrapped up his newborn session and mom's desire to capture Owen through photos as often as possible. Dad was a little confused as to why they needed so many sessions as we continued meeting every few months that first year, but I think he has now come around and we all really enjoy seeing each other so often. 

For Owen's 2 1/2 year milestone, we met at Gas Works Park in Seattle, WA... a spot I've always wanted to shoot at!! It may have been a freezing morning, but we took advantage of the dry morning and made it as quick as possible. Owen may have been a little clingy, but I absolutely adore those cuddly shots we got. Until next time, G Family!!!

Baby Luke | Mini Milestone | Maple Valley, WA

I had the pleasure of meeting 6 month old Luke for a mini milestone session last week and boy did we have a beautiful session!!! These lifestyle shoots at the client's home have got to be one of my favorites! I am so happy I ventured away from all of the distraction of props and backdrops and really focused in on the subject and simple surroundings. Less is definitely more!!

Luke is just a happy baby and definitely loves his mama! We had a lot of fun with him and it didn't take much for him to smile. I even had mom jump in there at the end and I absolutely adore those shots we got!! Happy 1/2 birthday, Luke! I am looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Harper is ONE | Cake Smash | Maple Valley, WA

Harper and her family are new to the PNW and I am so glad we connected. It has been fun capturing their special moments over the last few months and I look forward to watching little Harper grow through my lens. 

Harper just celebrated her first birthday!! We had a very fun and active shoot at her home here in Maple Valley. As expected, she was more excited about all of the balloons than the cake, but she never stopped smiling!! 

Happy 1st birthday, Harper!!!
