Busy Summertime!

Remember when you were a kid, and summertime seemed to last forever?  I miss that.  It seems the older I get, the quicker time goes by.  The pace of things takes my breath away. It's so easy to get caught up in it all.  This summer, I've been making a effort to slow down, especially with my kids.  We've been having mini adventures all over town, and days of doing nothing but playing at home.  I want them to grow up and have memories of long lovely summer days, despite the fact that they live in a big city with two very busy parents.  Here's a little peek at what we've been up to.


Sunny Maternity Session!!!

After weeks of cold and rain here in Seattle, the sun finally made an appearance today!  And just in time for this gorgeous mamma-to-be's maternity shoot!  Such fun!  And such a lovely session!

Baby Buns!!

too cute!

Addie has been a client of mine for years now.  I just love her and her adorable family, and am so excited that they will soon be adding a new little one to the gang!

Sunny Seattle Family Session!

I tell you, I'm loving these sunny days!  So fun to be able to get outside!


Summertime at the Ballard Locks

Well, summer has finally arrived in Seattle!  Yay!   And the Locks are one of my favorite summertime locations.  I just can't get enough of the trees!!  Just gorgeous!  And a beautiful day combined with a beautiful family is just icing on the cake!


Ah... Jenna!  I've been photographing this little girl since before she was born! I also had the privilege of photographing her birth!  One of her newborn pictures hangs on the wall in my studio.  Jenna and I go way back!  And even though she and her parents now live in Texas, I am lucky enough to get a little visit in whenever they come to Seattle on vacation.

We had a lovely shoot this morning at the Locks.  It was perfect light! And I couldn't have asked for better company! Little Miss Jenna was cute as ever, and just a pleasure to work with.

Here is a sneak peek from our morning together!
