Seattle Family Photography

The P family

I had the pleasure of working with the P family earlier this winter. Tina (aka mom), is a wonderful photographer herself, so when she contacted me about scheduling a family session, I jumped at the opportunity to work with this fun family.

We chose to do their session at Bellevue Downtown park and we met early in the morning on a beautiful sunny day.

Here are my favorite shots of the day. I hope you'll enjoy them!



The H family

Hello there!

...and Happy 2015!

After taking a much needed break over the Holidays, I am excited to share with you a beautiful family session I shot last fall.

The H family contacted me to shoot some fall photographs. We had originally planned to do their session at a location in the Eastside where there was a very cool set of trees and the plan was to shoot there so we could get awesome fall colors...but...the weather had other plans. So we headed to the lovely Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle instead and, thankfully, it worked out almost perfectly! The rain only showed up as we were ending our session.

In my humble opinion, this location matched their family's personality really well. And It was an honor to capture part of who they in a beautiful contemporary setting.

I hope you enjoy the work!


Seattle Family Photography - The Pipolo Family

Family photography is all about connection. It's also about engaging all family members and capturing those moments along the way. You add gorgeous warm and sunny weather to that formula and you get a session like this one! 

I have known Camilla (mom) for over a year now. When we first met a local MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) group, I thought she was one of the nicest, kindest people I had ever met. Needless to say, I was honored when she asked me to document her family a few months ago. They were a joy to work with! And as you will see in the pictures below, we had a great time in the almost two hours we spent together.

After discussing different location options, we picked Gene Coulon Park in Renton, WA. The park is located in the south eastern border of Lake Washington and it offers some beautiful views of the lake and the sunsets are just magical!

I hope you enjoy the work! ...and drop me a line in the comments section below if you'd like to connect!

Ava, Madie and Kalli - Child Photography Melbourne, FL

I had the pleasure of doing this joyful session with these three little ladies. I love their BFF t-shirs and matching outfits. They were happy, funny and spontaneous which made my job very very easy : ) This session happened on a beautiful, wrm sunny florida day. The breeze from the ocean kept us comfortable and provided a wonderful relaxed feeling to this experience.

Here are some of my favorite shots!

Baby Judah is 6 months old!

I met Baby Judah and his parents at Indian Harbour Beach, FL for a special session to celebrate Judah's six months of life. It was a clear windy day, just warm enough to keep everyone comfortable. I just love doing sessions at the beach. Here's a little sneak peak of their session : )
