This post is so absolutely dear to me and the amount of love I hold for these four souls is immeasurable.  Their session from this past fall ranks as one of my favorites.

Megan and Brad are dear friends of ours and their little Charlotte and Lila are practically sisters to our little son Mayer. In fact, if you stick with this post you will see a cameo of Mayer sitting with Charlotte and Lila! Megan helped this new mama by watching Mayer a few days a week this past year while I worked. Knowing he was being loved and watched over by this family took the sting out of not having him home with me those few days each week. And seeing the bond formed between these little ones was as sweet as could be.

This family brings joy to so many…they reach out, dig in and help others out around them. They are fiercely loyal friends and good stewards of our community. And this post makes me smile seeing the love they hold for each other.

 My little boho heart was completely filled after meeting this couple. Abby+Phil have such beautiful souls…inside and out. They are genuine and playful and woefully in love. They will be wed this summer and I am counting down the days until I get to see them again.

Enjoy this sweet session that I shot this fall celebrating their engagement.

Jessica + Cody // Maternity Session // Seattle Washington Maternity Photographer March 13, 2015 Leave a Fabulous Comment

If you have been a long-time follower of this blog, you will no doubt recognize Jessica and Cody. In these pictures taken last fall in Seattle, they were soon-to-be-parents…just on the precipice of a very life-changing event. I’m excited to say their sweet little daughter Lucy joined them this past winter and I absolutely cannot wait to meet her.

It was so much fun to see them in this new stage in their life…chatting excitedly with Jessica about all things pregnancy. Watching Cody be completely awed by his wife’s new appearance (they were high school sweethearts and Cody mentioned a few times during their session that it was still a shock to see his partner of over a decade carrying their little one). It was a beautiful evening spent overlooking the ocean and mountains in Discovery Park. I adore these two and think you will adore this sweet session!

 September 2015 // Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

If you can’t tell from the picture above, Lauren+Lane are a pretty rad couple.

Their wedding day this past fall was full of delight…the girls had a leisurely morning getting pampered and ready for the day. The boys wakeboarded on a nearby lake. Lauren+Lane’s first look was at a palatial estate complete with english gardens and the ceremony was outside under the warm, late fall sky. I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story. I’m still smiling remembering this fine day!

Last November we packed up our little family and flew out to the Pacific Northwest for a little adventure and to photograph some beautiful people. Tiny baby Sienna was just one of those people!

She was welcomed into the world last fall in Portland Oregon and her mama and dad are pretty smitten. This lifestyle session encompassed snuggles and love for their new baby daughter.
