Newborns :: Aparna (10 days new)

Life has a funny way of fulfilling us and surprising us… and that’s how little Aparna came into this world.  About a week shy of her due date, she arrived full of life, weighing almost 7 lbs.

I went on location for Aparna’s newborn session and the natural light was perfect for type of shots her mama and I had in mind.  She was such a joy to work with and while a couple naps were needed, she stayed calm when awake and even looked right at my lens a couple times. :)

To Aparna’s family, thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your newborn photographer.  I had so much fun meeting your family and loved documenting your newest little member.

Celebrating Milestones

Life’s little moments pass in the blink of an eye.  I know this now being a mom.  It feels like just yesterday little Jimmy was born and yet, he’s already 6 months old!  The first month was a blur… now, I have a little baby with a huge personality, a voice and the urge to explore on his own.  He reminds me of this constantly with his new found mannerisms.  The camera is no longer just a clicking object, but also something he recognizes and  I love the expression that follows…

A little window light, a bright backdrop and an IKEA basket are great for fun home shots!

And…to celebrate Jimmy’s big milestone, I want to celebrate with my clients by offering a BIG sale on sessions!  If you book a 2011 session with me by August 31st, you can save up to 30% on your session with a DVD.  Here’s the skinny…

Makenna & Evie :: Engaged

While Makenna & Evie were here visting Seattle (all the way from Georgia!) I was honored they chose me to be their engagement photographer.  I hadn’t done a same-sex session before, but knew I really wanted to and I’m glad Makenna & Evie put their trust in me to do so.  They are so much fun and we got some gorgeous Seattle light for their session. They brought the style and I brought extra memory cards. ;)

Here’s a sneak peek from their beautiful engagement session at Golden Gardens!
