A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes {Newborn Photographer, Bonney Lake}

Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting sweet little Baby “K”. We did her parents maternity session last November and she was due to arrive just prior to Christmas. I had a ton of holiday themed props ready for her to make her appearance, but as we all know, babies arrive when they want. Well baby “K” decided she was coming in just prior to New Years. So no baby in a Santa hat this time around, but still just as sweet. Worth the wait, she was  a dream to work with. Congrats to the family. She is a blessing.

Snow days and the ones who melt my heart

Snow snow is finally here. I personally hate it. Cant drive in it and hate not having the control to leave my home as I please. Kids however – they love it, and my kids are no exception. How I wish I had a session scheduled to work in the snow. How pretty it would be for an engagement or senior session. Or even trash the wedding dress! But instead I set out in the snow and play with the kiddos. Hey these moments are just as important if not more than working! Camera in hand, I never miss a moment with my goonies to capture their life. I do have mom goggles, as us photographers in the industry say, when taking photos of my own children. But here are the little ones who melt my heart on those chilly snowy days.

 

Reflections of the lens {Year in Review 2011}

As 2011 comes to an end, I wanted to look back and reflect on my year of work. WOW, I was first shocked how much there was to go through. It was fun for me to do because I was able to see all the things I did wrong, improved on, and fell in love with. I really feel like this year I grew in my craft more than I ever could have imagined. I’ve spent many hours rolling on the wet ground, having my fingers frozen in 20 degree weather, bruising  my tail bone diving after a two-year olds, and soothing the most wide awake crying newborns back to sleep. For some that sounds horrible - but I can tell you NO it was totally worth it. Because when you can capture a child or family in a way that brings tears to the eyes of the parents – it’s all worth it. 100%. I’m looking forward to another year of growth and experiences. To anyone out there I can tell you this. Don’t be afraid to live your dream. Anything can be achieved with hard work, dedication and passion. Make your own LUCK! Here are a few of my reflections of the lens.

For Mom {equestrian photographer; Enumclaw}

My mother raises some of the most beautiful horses on the Earth. She has been bugging me for months to take photos of them. I confess I don’t do animals and horses seem harder to photograph then the fastest 2-year-old. But here are a few of her babies  from her farm.

3 plus 1 = L<3VE {Maternity Session; Auburn Photographer}

Brrrr last week was a cold one. But a bun in the oven always keeps you toasty. We had some great weather for the “I” Family’s maternity shoot. Mom rocked her bump in the frosty air. We then did a little belly painting with her 1st baby. Big Brother sure looked proud and you could see the love and excitement in Dads eyes.
