What a treat to be able to capture the Slayton kids again. Look how big baby Harper is now and she’s walking! Then again it’s been about a year since I last saw them. I was surprised Kandice booked me to take family portraits on a Sunday. I didn’t think anything could pry her away from Sunday football, haha. Well, I sure hope it was worth it because sessions like these are priceless. I can’t stop saying what a beautiful and adorable family the Slaytons are. The session was made further cute because Kandice did an amazing job styling her cute little family for the shoot/location. It was all of our first times going down to the lighthouse at Discovery Park. The kids had so much fun running, rolling and sliding around in the grass and meadows. Baby Harper acted just like one of the boys in her adorable little denim skirt. Seriously, I can’t stop saying how ADORABLE this family is! I’m looking forward to capturing more precious moments with this family in the future. I love my job!
Baby Sabrina is now two years old! These pictures were taken back in August at Sabrina’s daycare/school playground and at Volunteer Park. This is just one of many reasons why I love doing what I do. To be able to document these moments in people’s lives. She’s just such a special little person and I couldn’t be more happy when her parents contacted me to take photos of Sabrina again. I just love her adorable and animated cuteness!
I met Kimlony about 10 years ago in college. It’s been many, many years since I’ve last seen her so it was to my surprise when I heard from her out of nowhere a couple months ago. It turned out we’ve been living in neighboring cities the past five years and never once have we ran into each other. Not even at Target where we both frequent and love so much! She contacted me via my business email because she was looking for a wedding photographer. Yup, she had just gotten engaged. Unfortunately, I’m unable to photograph her wedding next year but she wanted me to shoot their engagement session anyway. We agreed to go the urban route and I immediately suggested Pioneer Square. If you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for brick walls. Also, Seattle’s got a new landmark this Summer, The Seattle Great Wheel. I’ve been waiting for someone or an opportunity to come along so I could incorporate it into a photoshoot. Kimlony and Rob were both totally down for it. We decided to bypass the long line and not go on though. We had a lot fun and here are some pictures from their engagement session.
I saw a lot of this family the past several months. Tracy took advantage of my Holiday Special prepaid rates last year and booked three separate shoots. Third time around the weather was perfect. Actually, it was quite hot that day but we started early in the morning at the University of Washington campus. The Quad is one of my favorite places to shoot on campus and the look is so different depending on what time of the year it is. I love that we get to experience all four seasons here in the great PNW. I also posted a couple of frames from one of the previous shoots for Baby Vinh’s first birthday and cupcake smash.
I know Talia through work. Word’s been getting around at work about what I do on the side and one day Talia approached me about having me photographed her family. When I first met Talia she didn’t have her girls yet and up until the family session I have never met the girls before. I was excited to meet them finally since I’ve only seen pictures. Well, we started with some indoor studio shots and then moved outside later on when the sun came out for some fun playtime shots. Take a look closely and you will find Winnie making a special appearance.
