Leo's Newborn Session

Several months ago, I took maternity photos of my sweet friends, Melissa and Afshin.  A few months later I was able to take their son's newborn photos.  He looks like such a perfect mix of the both of them, with big, beautiful brown eyes.  He was such a good sport during the shoot, and it turned out to be nice and calm.  I really enjoyed taking these pictures, and meeting this little cutie.

Aidin and Rachel's Engagement

In the springtime, Rachel and Aidin got engaged and chose me to photograph their engagement session!  I was so excited!  We thought of a few locations and decided on Volunteer Park one day in March.  It turned out to be a sunny, warm day, which is not normal for Seattle in March.  The cherry blossoms and magnolia trees were in bloom and so we took advantage of the flowers for an ethereal background.  There are so many great places to take photos in Volunteer Park, so we made sure to get a variety of different backgrounds and images.  They are such a wonderful, sweet couple, and the afternoon went by fast.  There turned out to be so many great shots of these two dear ones, but here are a few that I narrowed it down to:

Kristina and Larry's Family Pictures

Back in April, one of my friends, Kristina, asked if we could set up a family portrait session with their sweet little cutie before they moved out of the area.  I was only too happy to oblige.  We decided to take photos at the beautiful Kubota Gardens in South Seattle on what turned out to be an amazingly sunny and bright day.  Their little sweetheart was an absolute pleasure to photograph, and their little family is so sweet.  Here are some of my favorites from the session:

Melissa's Maternity Session

My sweet, wonderful friend Melissa contacted me to let me know that she was expecting and asked if we could set up a maternity session.  I was so excited!!!  Melissa and Afshin are great friends of mine and I was overjoyed for them to experience parenthood.  We set up a day hoping that it wouldn't be pouring rain that day and it actually turned out to be a beautiful day.  We took the photos at Golden Gardens in Ballard, so of course it was super crowded, but it worked out and we were able to get some great shots.  These two are so kind and their love for each other is so apparent, it was a wonderful time.  They are going to be amazing parents, and I can't wait to see their sweet little one.  Here are some of my faves from the session:

Landon's 6 Month Session

Sweet little Landon---he and his mom and dad have been featured on this blog before, in Apryl's Maternity session and Landon's Newborn session---and for his 6 month session we wanted to do something fun, so we took a chair and went into the wooded area next to my house on a beautiful, sunny day.  He is such a cutie pie and Apryl and Steve are very photogenic (and pretty much up for anything), so it was a wonderful session.  I love the juxtaposition of the earthy, organic wooded area against the chevron printed chair and Landon's brightly colored shirt.  After we shot some pictures outside, we headed inside to get some of Landon in his diaper, which is our monthly tradition.  And babies are just adorable in their diapers.  I can't believe that he's 6 months old already!  Here are some of my faves from the session:
