Andrea & Michael | Engagement | Coal Creek Trail, WA

Andrea and Michael are getting married September 16, 2016 and I am so excited to be apart of their big day!! We met last week at Coal Creek Trail near Issaquah/Newcastle for their engagement session. I am so happy we could coordinate our schedules before Michael headed back to Australia, where he currently lives. 

These two were so fun to work with and we shared a lot of laughs. Enjoy just some of my favorites...

Stella | Cake Smash | Maple Valley, WA

I have had such the pleasure photographing Stella and her big sister over the past few years. I cannot believe how fast they are growing. Little sister Stella is turning ONE and we had one amazing cake smash session. She was loving that cake I made (which has to be one of my favorite ones to date!).

This session was very bittersweet to me. Not only was it my last indoor cake smash (yes, I can still do them outdoors!), but, it was my last in home studio session. It feels amazing to finally move on to another chapter in my business, but oh so sad that all my efforts into indoor sessions is now gone. I will definitely miss having all of your babies come to my home, but I am super excited to take things outdoors!!!

Thank you for such a great session Stella. Happy birthday!!

Caroline | Lifestyle Newborn | Kirkland, WA

Welcome to the world, baby Caroline!! At 11 days new, I was honored to hang out at her beautiful home and take some lifestyle newborn shots of her and her adorable family. She was just perfect and slept the entire time. I think I saw her eyes at the very end!! 

I was first greeted by big brother Nolan... "Did you bring me a present?!" Such a character! But, darn, forgot his gift!!!! From then on, we had so much fun and he even got to help take some photos!  

After sessions like these, I feel so excited about my new adventure with my business. Getting away from the distraction of props and poses really captures families beautifully. These are images that will be remembered forever.  Enjoy some of my favorites...

Khloe | Cake Smash | Maple Valley, WA

It has been a year since Khloe's newborn session and I cannot believe how big and CUTE she is!! Time goes by way too fast. I really just adore her and her extended family... so much that I fit Khloe in for a quick cake smash session the day Grandma inquired. Anything for a local, kind family!!

Khloe wasn't too sure about the madness taking place, but boy did she look so pretty. LOVED the colors we put together. Looking forward to working with this family again in the near future... we always have so much fun!!

Happy 1st birthday, Khloe!!

Elise | Cake Smash | Maple Valley, WA

What a busy month for cake smashes!! And, my last month doing indoor cake smashes. I definitely will miss these sessions. Especially since I make most of the cakes myself. I really enjoy baking and decorating cakes. I have finally gotten the hang of it, so I will have to continue experimenting on my free time... I have 3 boys who don't mind being my personal taste testers ;). 

Elise is celebrating her first birthday! I have thoroughly enjoyed photographing her the last year. I never got too many smiles from her during our times together, but she always has had the best eye contact. Although she liked taking bites out of the pompoms more than the cake, we had an awesome one year cake smash shoot!!

Archer | Cake Smash | Maple Valley, WA

Archer came in for his one year session a couple weeks ago and boy was he in high spirits!! He just had the greatest time, while keeping me and mom on our toes! So active, so happy. I think it is safe to say that he totally demolished his cake... even attempted to take bites out of the cake base!!!

Archer and his adorable family have definitely become one of my favorites the past year. I had the pleasure of first meeting them all when Archer was in mommy's belly for their maternity session. And, in the last year, I have enjoyed capturing many more memories for them. It is always a good feeling to have that constant support from client's no matter what road you may be on. I am looking forward to seeing their family grow through the years. 

Happy 1st birthday, Archer!!!
