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…

Sneak Peek :: Aparna (10 Days Old)

While I love weddings, engagements and events, I always jump at the opportunity to photograph a sweet little newborn.  There’s nothing like holding and seeing their fresh little face within the first couple weeks of being born.  I recently got to photograph this adorable baby girl who was only 10 days old, and lucky for me, she even opened her eyes for a couple shots!

If you’re a mama who’s expecting, be sure to reserve your newborn session now so you can enjoy these moments when they arrive.

Melissa + Sean :: Married

“It wasn’t a matter of if they would get married, it was only a matter of when…”

“Melissa, thank you for always taking care of me and letting me ride in the front seat.”

These were the words spoke by Melissa & Sean’s best man and maid of honor.

I don’t have enough words to describe Melissa & Sean.  They’re two of the most down to earth, funniest, outgoing people with all the kindness in the world.  Their wedding was stylish, fun and unique.  Melissa worked hard putting the details into everything from the table decor with handcrafted take home items to the beautiful flower arrangement that hung over the altar.  This wedding was a perfect reflection of their personality and I’m honored I was there to photograph their special day.

This wedding was put on with the help of:

- Main Photographer:  Erika Monaco Photography
- Second Shooter:  Toni Lynn Photography
- Venue:  Mt. Baker Clubhouse
- Amazing Makeup by:  Bull’s Eye Makeup & Hair (Colleen Harun)
- Officiant:  Quinn Russell
- Dessert:  Molly’s Moon
- Dinner:  Rancho Bravo Tacos

Isn’t Melissa gorgeous?  I love, love, love her dress!

The first look (pre-ceremony)

The amazing officiant, Quinn Russell, who I highly recommend.  She’s just one of those people with grace & a good spirit.

Ice cream scooped & served up by Molly Moon’s here in Seattle!

Reactions to the vintage photobooth… we took our modern white photobooth & put a vintage spin on it!  You can see all the awesomeness from the booth on Facebook.

Melissa & Sean :: Seattle Engagement Session

Meet Melissa & Sean… and their lovable dog Jackson.  They are getting married at the Mt. Baker Clubhouse in Seattle this month.  I had an awesome time working (if that’s what you call it ;)) with this little family of three.  It was only fitting to have Jackson as part of their engagement session since he’s their designated ring bearer.

After days and days of typical Seattle rain, we were lucky enough to catch a break and get some great soft light for their session.  We started at the 9 lb hammer in Georgetown and then headed to Alki to catch the sunset.

It’s hard to choose a favorite from this day.  This has to be one of my favorite sessions to date.  Be sure to leave Melissa & Sean some love below or on Facebook.

Melissa & Sean, thanks for a great day!  Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

The next two shots remind me of an album cover.  This wasn’t planned, but they actually have this couch set at home!

A couple quick outtakes I want to share with you.

Carrying his own leash!  I’ve had a couple clients bring their pups to sessions and it’s always fun to see them show off for the camera. :)
