Wow, check out this birthday cake! So colorful and bright and covered in rock stars! I had a great time photographing Eric Anthony’s Rock N Roll themed 12th birthday party with his friends at Ballard Pool in Seattle this past weekend. Swimming, squirt gun fights, raft takeovers, dives and slides and a Tarzan-style rope swing into the deep end. Followed by pizza and cake. And then more cake. Now that doesn’t sound fun at all………. :-)

The Gessert family picked the loveliest location for their multi-generation family photography session earlier this month, Bellevue Botanical Gardens! I have not had the opportunity to shoot in the gardens before and after this photo shoot I decided I was disappointed in myself for not having had visited sooner. The entire park was full of so many beautiful, colorful and diverse spaces that, had it not been sunny out, I would have had a hard time deciding where to shoot. But due to the fact that we were shooting at noon and it WAS super sunny out, I chose to do most of the family portraits in the shadier areas with heavier foliage in order to achieve the evenly lit look I was after.

The entire Gessert clan was wonderful to work with! Smiles all around (well, from the adults at least :-) For multi-generational family photo shoots I like to do a handful of group shots, then split up and get different groupings with the grandparents & grandkids, husbands & wives, the individual families and then shots of just the kids and babies by themselves.

One year older and one year cuter! It is so fun for me to visit my clients a year after our previous photo shoot and see how much the kids have changed in such a short time. Last year I photographed the Burkhead-Kang family as they were welcoming their youngest daughter into this world and I’m so happy to be back for her 1st birthday! Both girls’ birthdays are actually just a few weeks apart, so towards the end of our family photography session their parents gave them gifts to open which were none other than Elsa & Anna costumes from Frozen. Happy girls? Take a guess :-)

What a lovely photo session this was! Chris and Chomie are a newlywed couple and wanted a portrait session that featured both wedding and engagement clothing and style of portraits. The photos were all taken up in Lake Stevens at Chris’s family’s gorgeous, mountain-view property. And we had his baby, a beautiful Ford Mustang, as a prop :-) Soooooooo awesome.

I could have taken photographs for hours longer than we shot, the possibilities were endless. Red barn, pond, stellar car, snow covered mountains in the distance, golden sun rays busting through the hedges, hot pink flowers on the trees, the list goes on. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the gorgeous couple, Chomie and Chris, who were so kind and so fun to work with. And a big shout out to Chomie who cooked us an amazing Thai dinner afterwards! A great photography session followed by my favorite kind of food? Ya, I had a good day.

Last summer I had the opportunity to photograph a large number of small business owners and professionals from around the Seattle area during an all-day headshot event at Umpqua Bank in South Lake Union. These were all taken indoors using a combination of window light and studio light. Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
