Looking ahead

Dreaming of Seattle WM

In the midst of the busyness here in SoCal, both Tim and I are constantly thinking ahead...of what is to come and what could be. Missing Seattle today and found this picture of Tim and little N taken last year. Such a perfect depiction of our family's perspective as we look ahead at what is to come~
Happy Thursday everyone!

Little Caleb Sneak Peek

In my previous post, I mentioned that little ones can get distracted by being in such a huge field for the first's an outtake shot from a recent family sesion that proves this to be true! 
Little Caleb is celebrating his first birthday very soon, and was mesmerized by the sea of golden grass around him. His mini bowtie was to die for, loved it!
Lots more from this family session to come~!

Summer Family Session

Loved capturing this little beauty! 
There is something about this age that pulls at my heartstrings - I think it's the sense of wonder that a one year old has about everything - from the wind, to the grass, to the birds in the sky. (All of these actually distract them from looking straight at me, so field sessions can be a challenge sometimes, but so fun at the same time!)

Hope everyone has been enjoying the first days of summer so far!

I've been busy with lots of beautiful family sessions but shot a special one recently as part of the GH Kim Photography team.

For those of you that don't know, I will be moving back to my hometown of Seattle in August, and will start shooting family portraits for GH Kim starting in September. So excited to reconnect with friends and family, to shoot in the beautiful Northwest and become part of an amazingly talented team!

Check out my first portrait session for them here.

Ra Family Session

A lovely evening spent in the sun with this beautiful family...
It's not hard to see why Henry is totally in love with the two ladies in his life...he simply adores them... such a sweet and loving family, it was truly a joy to capture this moment in time for them!

Happy Father's Day 2012

This morning Naomi wrote a card to Tim...inside she wrote, 
"I love you Dad
becus you love me."
So glad that she wrote that...simple but to the point. 
She knows she is loved.

We still laugh that we have two daughters - it's quite amusing watching Tim play with two little girls who ask to dance with him, treat him like a human jungle gym, and have him "do" their hair. But I love seeing Tim rise to the occasion and not only physically take care of our kids, but spiritually lead them too. So thankful for him~

Here are some images taken a while ago from a family beach day~ I've been so busy with client images that I rarely have time to post some of our own! 
Hope everyone has a wonderful time with friends and family today~
