Seattle Pregnancy Session

Seattle Pregnancy Session
Oh my goodness...I just adored Pinky and the idea of using a beautiful sari for her Seattle pregnancy session. I've wanted to do a pregnancy session with a sari for a long time, so I was so excited when she brought it up. It was so much fun, and she was a such trooper - walking all over Discovery Park. It was another gorgeous day in Seattle, and we ended it up on the [...]

Who’s in the Box?

Who's in the Box?
I had a somewhat unexpected request recently. It was my sister, asking me to do a photo session for her. She is a vibrant, vivacious, beautiful 55 year old...just like so many of the women I have photographed over the years. And I hesitated.  It was only a brief moment, but it registered somewhere deep inside me. Why? I have photographed literally hundreds o[...]

2015: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…

2015: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes...
"Still don't know what I was waitin' for..." David Bowie is in my head this morning. 2015 is in my head this morning. It's just another year, right? Right.

Perfect. I have to give[...]

“Let’s Make a Deal”

A word about pricing your work... This is something I get asked about a lot from other photographers...especially those who are in the beginning phases of their business. So I thought I would do a little blog post. Not just for them, but for their current and future clients. First - a disclaimer. These are my own personal beliefs after having been doing this for q[...]

Seattle Maternity Session

Seattle Maternity Session
Seattle Maternity Session in Discovery Park How much did I love the light in this Seattle maternity session??!! Oh my goodness... and to make the evening even sweeter, this was the third maternity session I have photographed for this beautiful family. Discovery Park is also one of my favorite parks to photograph in - maybe because I love lighthouses, or maybe it's be[...]

Newborn Bliss

Newborn Bliss
Pregnancy & Newborn Photography I photographed Christine and Mike's wedding last summer (an outdoor wedding on his family property, beautifully styled by Sinclair and Moore), and was thrilled to be called back to photograph her pregnancy and their beautiful newborn baby girl...how fun is that? (My very favs were actually some exquisite nudes we did in the woods o[...]
