Audrey's Birth - Seattle Birth Photographer

Here is the lovely birth story of my dear friend, Misti - one of the most beautiful experiences I've ever had the privilege to capture. It was late on a February evening when Misti called me to say she was in labor with her third child. I headed over to her home and joined up with her birthing team: husband, midwives, and nurse and we all settled in excitedly for what we assumed would be an evening of birthing.
But birth is a mysterious thing indeed, and for inexplicable reasons after a night of labor no baby came and contractions started to taper off. Big sister Ella was slightly sad to go to school that morning with no new baby to show for all the strangers that greeted her upon waking. We all went home as Misti and Paul caught up on some much needed sleep.

More than a week later I got the call - it was happening! Upon entering their home I could tell that this was different than before. Labor was in full swing and nothing would be slowing it down this time. Misti worked so hard throughout the night and in the lovely light of morning a beautiful (and big!) baby girl was delivered into the world. We were all overjoyed - and I remain extremely proud of my dear friend for her strength, her patience, and her remarkable maternal instinct.
Welcome, dear Audrey - we are so glad you're here.

2014 mini-sessions - Seattle Family Photographer

Wow! I had the best time in December photographing a number of Seattle families over a two weekend mini-session blitz. I love looking over these images and remembering each family's energy - their smiles and laughter. If you don't have the time or money to book a photographer for an entire portrait session, a mini session is a great solution! I spent 20 minutes with each family - enough time to capture real smiles and interaction, but not enough time for little ones to get restless.

As much as I love a slow paced session on a summer evening, when it comes to the fading light of fall/winter, I am all about a quick shoot and a fast turn around! Did you all have your portraits made this year? I must admit, I did not.

Cobbler's children and all....

Photos of my kids do exist though! If you're interested in learning more about me and my family, here is a link to my personal blog and a pinky swear for a new post in the coming week.

So much thanks to all my clients, past and future - it is my absolute pleasure to work with you.

Ro Family - Seattle Family Photographer

I love watching this family grow! I first met the Ro's when Lucy was just a newborn and it has been my pleasure to photograph them a number of times over the years. In these photos (as well as the previous ones) it is clear to see that over time children grow and personalities emerge, while love remains the constant that holds everyone together.

Thanks guys - I'm looking forward to next time!
