ten years later | snohomish family lifestyle photographer

I’m gushing over this session, and kicking myself for not sharing it sooner.

I’ve photographed them since they were expecting their baby girl. How lucky am I? The Tolt MacDonald park is one of their favorite places to be, lots of memories have been stored here. And, it couldn’t make for a more perfect session to photograph them. This is Cristen and Tony, ten years married. Now with children that run their hearts, life is more beautiful than ever before. They are truly one of the sweetest families I’ve gotten to know, and their love for each other runs so deep.

What a joy to see these joyful hearts once again.

newborn lifestyle photography | seattle photographer

I have such a love for this family. I’ve been with them (as in photographing them since their oldest was still in her tummy), and it is just so dear to me that I got to document these moments with their daughter. So much cherished here. I adore their smiles, the way their son warms up to me and shows me his room so proudly, the way this daddy holds his girl so proudly and the most heartfelt love you feel when she holds her girl. It was out of this world. Goosebumps and lots of moments where I just stood back in awe. It was so lovely.

Anyway, here is this beautiful family and their girl, Josephine Frances at nine days.

my children | personal post

I’ve dropped the ball, for over 10 months now. Yikes. It’s been that long since I’ve blogged.

It’s been quiet on here, not here where I sit in my office, but in this space that I choose to share work and client sessions. I’ve been so quiet on social media, and it’s been good! There is so much to keep up with running your own business, and blogging hasn’t been a priority. These past months I’ve worked with beautiful families with the happiest smiles you’ve ever seen and I’ve so loved keeping it all to myself. I might share a few of these sessions, because who doesn’t want to see sleepy newborn smiles? But, honestly I’m more interested in using this space to show you how my clients have chosen to enjoy their images. Because, what do you do with all those images sitting on your memory drive? We have built gallery walls, big thick heirloom albums, milestone books and handfuls of desktop portraits. At the end of the day, I want my work to be enjoyed and cared for and be seen in a tangible form.

I have a yearly book I put together of our babies. These are a few of my favorites from our last session. I’m loving their little personalities at this age, my heart can hardly take it.
