Mother's Day Mini #2

Mother's Day Sessions were so fun...and there was no exception when it came to documenting Sonja and Ryan. Sonja is a cousin of Jeannette, who's maternity, newborn and family photos I have taken this past year. I love it when clients are so excited about referring friends and family. Best compliment ever! ;)Ryan was a little leary of getting in the grass, but mom's sweet kisses gave him the courage. This was literally is first time laying in the grass. What a new world!
He was definitely curious with his surroundings...but oh, so cute at the same time.

Grass and weeds were definitely a delicacy today...and I'm sure the feel of it on his hands was just the coolest. From curiosity to ripping plants out of the ground and tasting them...took all of seconds. That's a boy for ya! ;)
Such a doll with those big brown eyes.

Thanks again Sonja for allowing me to document Ryan at 7 months and to capture some priceless moments. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! He's a lucky little boy!

Mother's Day Mini #1

The minute I met this family, I knew they we were going to have a fun time. Such great personalities, so sweet, full of adventure and beautiful inside and out. Seattle also decided to bless us with such a warm and sun-filled day... and the combination of great people and weather...simply perfect.Mom was so fun loving and had a special bond with her little ones. The family recently returned from a trip to Mexico, (where Mom is from) and phrases of spanish were intermingled into conversations. I LOVE that she is raising her kids bilingual. Awesome!Her baby boy, Joaquin ...such a cutie.Looking at this smile, makes me smile. I think this is one of my favorites from the session. PRECIOUS...and it happened in a split second. Paloma and Joaquin...two little gems.
Paloma (such an adorable name) was a great bundle of energy, but this moment was so sweet and serene. Joaquin only had eyes for mommy. ;)Little fun family time down by the beach.Dad pushing Paloma around on the zip line swing. 'Again, again, again'...was all Paloma could say.Dad has some sweet snuggles with his son. Thank you to such a wonderful family and allowing me to capture the true essence of YOU.
I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
