NEW in 2011

I have to admit that blogging is not my specialty, and my apologies to all my AWESOME clients whom I've photographed over the past 5 months who have not received a post all their own. I have so many of you to thank for your business, continued support and referrals. I've been working on a new website, logo and blog...and I'll promise to post a fave (or two or three) of your session from this past year. It'll start things off 'right'.

Hope you had an amazing holiday with friends and family! Looking forward to a fresh start in 2011. All my best!

Puppy Love

During a fun mother's day mini session, Jacob had some stiff competition...his new puppy, Dory. Being an adorable golden retriever...I had to give her a little photo op. Here are the two of them playing best friends! Running, jumping and hugging...big hugs. Like, Elmyra from tiny toons ("I'm going to hug you and squeeze you and love you to pieces....")

Little water play time

After all that hard work, nothing is better than a little rest in the shade.
Stay tuned for more Jacob photos.

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!

Watch out Wall Street!

I had the best honor of being able to join Emily, her mom and sister at a gorgeous farm in Issaquah for Emily's SENIOR session. This isn't an ordinary senior session. See, Emily is 19 and never got to be a senior in highschool. She was on the fast track and started college at age 16. WHAAT? Yeah, that's what I said. Not only is she gorgeous, she's uber smart too. So, this senior session was a present from her mom, to honor her senior year at University of Washington, where she'll be graduating from in June. Straight out of college, she'll be heading to the Big Apple to work on WALL STREET. Amazing! I showed this picture to Emily immediately after I took it, and she said 'I love it! That's my favorite!' (I love it too Emily)Put your financial trust in with Emily, you could be living the high life ;).

A couple of business shots. I'm sure she'll put those boys on Wall Street to shame.
Simply stunning. Such a pretty smile and piercing blue eyes.
One of my favorite parts of the session was being able to photograph Emily with her favorite pets. I being a horse person myself, loved being able to capture the bond between her and her horse, Adobe. Love how both their eyes are closed, her hand on his chin. Such a sweet moment.
Everything about this photo makes my heart melt as well.
Probably one of my favorite photos of the day...however, so hard to choose. ;)
Thanks again Emily for allowing me to capture some fun memories and some beautiful photos of you, your pets, your sis (Melanie...below). You're such a sweetie and I know you'll have a blast in NYC. Best wishes for a successful career and make sure to call your mom often, I know she's going to miss you bunches!

Vegas- trash the dress session

During my first trip to WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), I was given the opportunity to join some fun and fabulous photographers (from Mexico, S.Cal and Dominican Republic) to do a trash the dress session. My gorgeous photographer friend, Heather, was the awesome model for this session. We got to hit the vegas strip during sunset, for a fast a furious photo session...and here are a few of those shots. This was my favorite of the evening!Heather was such a great sport and looked so naturally beautiful.Gotta love the extras in the shots!A little flirting with the Hooters bill board guy never hurt anyone ;).This was one of my favorite locations, the architechture and lighting was awesome.Love the rich colors and patterns...MGM Grand.Thanks guys for such a fun time and I look forward to seeing you again next year at WPPI.
