Congratulations to my good friend Susan who will be getting married to Perry this August.
It was so much fun to watch her try on dresses and get into full on bridal bliss! This day we attended the Brides against breast cancer wedding dress fundraiser and tried our best to find something that would work.
Well we didn’t find THE dress, but we got a lot of ideas about what styles Susan liked and what she envisioned herself looking like as she walked down the aisle. I can’t wait to be there as you say I do to your groom and to celebrate your love to him.
All the best to you for all of the happy years to come.
Fung Family – WOW, I am so behind on blogging it so isn’t funny. I normally tell people it will be up in a month or two, but sheesh, 7 months…. *blush*
I met the Fung family at a Mariner’s game that my husband Steve’s work organized. The girls were soooo adorable and I of course had to snuggle little Hailey because she was just too friggen adorable for words! Gotta love baby snuggles… yum! Anyway we got to talking with Cassie & Ray and the topic came up that I was a photographer… they were so excited because they had just been talking about doing family photographs. SWEET! Gotta love meeting someone and being able to help them take care of a to do item as wonderful as portraits! Ü
Within a week of meeting I set up the appointment for the Fung family and met them up in Bothell at the Country Village. I’d wanted to photograph there… toooooo cute for words. Well found out the hard way that there is a photographer with rights to the property there so I got a little letter that asked me not to return… oh well… I got to fulfill my wish of photographing there and we got some absolutely adorable shots! Ü
Ray & Cassie ordered framed storyboards to go in their home. Here are the two they ordered of the girls:
Ok, seriously, could these girls BE any more adorable? I just love my job!!!
What an absolutely beautiful day for a wedding! It had rained all week and then the sun came out for a gorgeous wedding day! You just never can tell what it’s going to do here in Washington… but thankfully for Briana & Jerrod’s day it was fantastic weather.
I had a little fun playing with some different light set ups for their wedding photos and I just love how these formals came out.
Love when a bride has fun with her shoes. It says so much about her personality and adds a fun little touch that says boo ya, I'm the bride and I'm making a statement!!!
Your wedding and reception were such a blast. If it weren’t for the fact that I was totally exhausted from a long day, I think I just might have stayed to shake a leg on the dance floor! Ü
Too cute, Briana and Jerrod used their homemade BBQ Sauce as a favor for their wedding guests. Each family got to leave with a bottle. Love!
Congratulations you two, to many many years of wedded bliss!
Jan & Rick are the most wonderful people and I was just ecstatic to be able to photograph their family. We met the Landrys in our car club and have served on the board with them, enjoyed game nights and just feel like they are part of our extended family.
It was so cool to be able to meet their daughter Jana, her husband Travis and their son Colton.
Colton was definitely the star of the day. He loves the beach, so it was an obvious choice to go to Owen's Beach at Point Defiance Park. The beach there is great for photographs.
This was the favorite family portrait of the day. It was used for their holiday cards and is also now hanging in the Landry’s home as well. Decorating with portraits is such a beautiful way to honor those we love and have them near us all day every day.
I just love the interaction here between grandparents and grandson. So absolutely priceless. I know that they will treasure this photograph all of their days and that Colton will treasure it too as he grows.
Thanks to you all for a wonderful session and then a great time visiting at the Antique Sandwich Company afterwards. It was a fantastic day to create memories!!!
These kids just keep growing and getting cuter every day! In fact I just got a call from my niece telling me that she read her first entire book all by herself! Such a proud auntie!
This session was supposed to be to get photos of the kids together…. However Noah was not going to cooperate for that. This was just one day when it wasn’t going to happen. So we got some photos of each of them separately and also with their Mimi.
Looking so grown up.
Loving her Mimi so much!
Kaylin & Mimi's hands. A photograph that I know will mean so much to both of them some day!
The little stinker.
Feelin' a little vintage! The best part about this was that Noah's grandpa had a truck just like this when he was a little boy. It was a neat surprise to give the photo to him.
Enjoy life's moments, even if they aren't perfect, they are still your life and your memories... make them as special as can be.
Summer won a free session through a promotion that I had recently on my Facebook fan page. Summer and I met years ago when we use to work together at BECU. It’s been more than 5 years since I worked there, so it was great to see her again. Summer and Chris were excited to have their photographs taken as this was the first photograph they have had since they were married.
Summer wanted to a large print with a not so traditional pose to hang on her wall in their family room. They ended up using this image in a 16x24.
I really enjoyed capturing their relationship. It is so obvious that they love each other very much.
I just love this backlit photograph of their hands coming together in a heart. It’s so symbolic in many ways. The heart of course for their love, but their hands coming together, being a team, to make a whole. Hands are just so beautiful and tell you so much about a person… I just love to photograph people’s hands. Ü
Thanks for a great session. I hope to see your wall of photos as you described it will be some day! Ü
