The Always Adorable Jamie!!

This cutie cute little man has been coming in to see me since he was just a tiny baby.  Now he's an adorable three year old!  I tell you, they just grow up so darn fast!!

Here is a little sneak peek from his birthday shoot at Seattle's fabulous Gasworks Park!

Maternity Photo Shoot in Sunny Seattle!

I had such a great weekend!  Fantastic clients and sunshine!!  The perfect combination.

These photos are from Sunday's maternity session.  It was a lot of fun, and isn't she just beautiful!?

The Adorable Mr. A

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... my clients have the cutest babies!!!

sneak peak for today's maternity session

I had such a fantastic maternity session this afternoon, I just had to share these images!!  Isn't she stunning!!


I'll be shooting a 60th birthday party in August for a lady who loves her pugs!!  Her son's, together with the amazing Katy Griffiths of VOWS: Wedding and Event Planning, came up with the awesome idea to use photographs of her beloved dogs as the table numbers for the event.  Brilliant!!!  So today, we had our Pug shoot.  And let me tell you... it was a blast!!!!  We got great photos of the dogs and their numbers, as well as some of the behind the scenes shenanigans.

Check out these little super models!!!

The Best Camera... is the one that's with you

Here's the deal friends.... I'm obsessed with the camera on my Iphone.  Seriously.  I just love it!  I love that it's always with me.  I love that it makes capturing the wonderfully mundane and beautiful moments of day to day life so easy!  I love that it makes me look and notice what is around me!!  It's just great! And I never want to be with out it.

I've recently joined Instagram, which has only fueled my obsession.  I'm truly blown away by the gorgeous work that is being made out there!!!  It's so inspiring!

So, if you don't already, start taking pictures with your phone.  Look around you.  See what is beautiful and turn it into something special!  And if you are on Instagram... look me up (sandracoan), following me, and I'll follow you.  I'd love to see what's inside your phone!!

Here is a little peek at what's inside mine

The Clinick Family

So, the Clinicks have been coming in to see me since my studio was one tiny little room in my tiny little house.  That my friends, was a long time ago.  Now look at them!! All grown up.   Amazing!

It was great seeing them all, and we had a fantastic time at beautiful Gasworks park.  Here is a little peek from our shoot.

... this three headed monster picture cracks me up!!


Friday morning was cold and rainy.  It felt like September, and I was not happy about it.  I'll admit it... I was feeling a little cranky.  But then, little Miss Lilah came in and turned it all around.  She is just the cutest little thing, and instantly snapped me out of my bad mood.  I particularly love her little Ester Williams inspired swim wear.... hilarious!!!

Here is a sneak peek from her photo shoot!


Here he is!  Zack... the adorable little brother of Felix.  Isn't he just the cutest thing?


Felix, a.k.a Mr. Personality, is the cutest little three year old I've seen in a long time.  Definitely not camera shy.....  You'll meet his equally adorable little brother tomorrow!

The Bachmeier Family in Sunny Seattle!

This is the adorable Bachmeier family.  It seems that for the past three years or so, every time they've come in for a photo session it has rained cats and dogs.  So we were all very excited to see some sunshine this year!  We went to Seattle's beautiful Gasworks Park for their shoot.  It was great!


This is Graham.   You may recognize him from the photo slideshow on this blog, and from my website.   I work with him every year, and have been doing so for a long time now.  Building relationships with the families and children I work with is one of the most rewarding things about my job.  I love watching these little people grow up!!  Lucky me!!  And Graham is one of my favorites!  He's always so much fun to work with!  I'm already looking forward to next year.
