Cutie-pie Ashlyn | 2 years old {State Capitol in Olympia}

Posted by on May 19, 2011 in .Families., .Little ones., Lifestyle | No Comments

Here’s another awesome set of photos featuring 2 year old, Ashlyn, and her parents hanging out around the picturesque grounds of the Washington State’s Capitol in Olympia. This was my first time meeting them. We all had a great time getting to know each other and managed to get some sweet shots! It took some time for Ashlyn to warm-up to me while I took her photo, but as soon as she did, her smile beamed contagiously and she seemed to have a ton of fun. Oh, and gotta love those little blond curls! I think Ashlyn is super-duper cute and I’m excited to see her and her parents again.

A big thanks to Casey Wilson for introducing me to them and for helping us at the photoshoot. To see Casey’s family’s photos at the State Capitol, please click HERE.

Logan & Anthony win the happiest baby award in my book! I have never seen such happy babies and I was giddy and inspired the entire time while photographing them. They are SO stinkin’ cute. Their amazing parents, Megan and Mark, say it just right, “Their happiness is contagious!”  I LOVE my job!

Congrats Megan & Mark! Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.


Adorable 2 year old, Brett + State Capitol {Olympia, WA)

Posted by on May 11, 2011 in .Families., .Little ones., Lifestyle | No Comments

I have known my dear friend, Casey since high-school, so it was an honor to me to capture her 2 year old adorable son, Brett. I met them at Washington’s State Capitol grounds in Olympia. We were so lucky that the weather held up for a few hours. It was the perfect time frame as it poured down later in the afternoon (aaah, typical Northwest weather!).

I had a great time playing and photographing Brett with his loving parents. He loves walking up and down stairs, chatting with anyone and everyone passing by (“Hi, my name’s Brett, what’s yours?”), getting tossed up by his dad, discovering all new and familiar things around him and of course running, a LOT. He is full of wonderful, playful energy!

I am VERY excited to meet their upcoming baby girl this coming summer. I am glad I was able to get a few pregger shots of Casey! Congrats you guys.

Casey loves my “split-toning” color editing process, so you will see this look throughout these images. Here are some of our favorite images from this photo session.

KIDS! Seattle Fisherman's Wharf

Meet 2 year old cousins, Owen & Zekiah. I met them at Fisherman’s Wharf in Seattle (Magnolia) to capture their cuteness. Their siblings, Justis and Adalyn, joined them in the fun. It was a beautiful day with a cool breeze. We had access to a fun indoor space with drums, guitars, offices, and a very cool retro car. Check it all out!

Baby Jillian + Big Bro Cameron {Seattle}

Congrats to the Cook Family for the addition of sweet, adorable, Jillian. I met her for the first time at this photo session in their Seattle home. Jillian is 6 weeks young and she’s already full of expressions! Her big bro, Cameron, is super stoked to have a little sister. He is so loving and caring towards her — it melted my heart!

This session is the first of the series in the, “A Year in a Life of a Baby,” collection. I am looking forward to seeing them all during my next visit to Seattle in a few months.

Sullivan's VERY Merry Un-Birthday {Alice in Wonderland Inspired}

An outdoor celebration of Sullivan’s birthday in ONE-derland was so fun, adorable and simply wonderful! I watched and photographed her grow from day 10 to 1 years old. Her parents really went all out for her 1st year in life with amazing detail, yummy food, dressed-up friends, face-painting, a tea-party, pretty flowers, grass cupcakes, and really, anything Alice in Wonderland like. SUPER CUTE! Little Sully (her nick-name) seemed to enjoy herself along with her big bro, Dempsey, and all the other little kiddos and parents.

Here are my favorite images from Sully’s VERY Un-Birthday party.

Sweet Skye + her parents

This is my 3rd photo shoot with Skye. I photographed her and her awesome parents in their backyard in Marina Del Rey. Skye is a total character! She wants to be a dancer and actress. She directed herself in such cute poses and expressions– I have never seen any other 6 year old to them! She’s a natural.

Beautiful Belly! In-studio plus Venice Beach {Brooke + Eric}

Posted by on Apr 29, 2011 in .Families., Maternity | No Comments

It’s been awhile since I have posted a blog entry. This doesn’t mean that I haven’t been shooting lately. In fact, it’s quite opposite. I am shooting so much that I haven’t had time to keep up with my blog. I hope to catch up soon!

I am very excited to showcase these photos of Brooke and her hubby, Eric. I photographed their gorgeous wedding in Malibu Feb 2010. You can see those photos here:

For these beautiful belly photos, we started in my home studio and then headed down to Venice Beach. This coming week, I’ll get to meet 8 day old, Quinny for her newborn photos. We are doing a “Year in a Life of a Baby” Series, so I get to see her grow and capture her cuteness throughout the year. Let the joy begin!

Meet Cameron – 3 Year Old, Adorable Athlete!

Posted by on Jan 29, 2011 in .Families., .Little ones. | One Comment

Cameron may be the most athletic 3 year old I have ever shot in my 10 years in business. Wow. I mean, we got him on the long board, he kicked the soccer ball around, he rode his bike, posed with his dad’s surf board, and played with his fire trucks. He’s an active kid… and he’s adorable! Thanks Cook Family for making this a very fun photo shoot for me.

Wishing you the best with your new baby girl. I can’t wait to meet and photograph her!

Here are my favorite shots from our photo session. I hope you enjoy them.
