The “G” Family | Monroe, WA Photographer

I had the fun opportunity of photographing this lovely family on Saturday! They have been apart for a while as they are spread out over three countries… So when the opportunity arose of having a family get together, family portraits were a must!

For many of us, family gatherings can be rare and I love that this family saw the value of documenting such a great opportunity! Here’s a quick sneak peek from the sessions. Enjoy!

Sweet Nathan | 12 Days New {Seattle, WA Newborn Photographer}

January 27th, 2012

With every newborn session that I do, I walk away with new learning experiences and new nuggets of information about these sweet little babes. I love how much THEY teach me about themselves. There is nothing about this job that I don’t enjoy… Okay, maybe being pooped on… But honestly, even that doesn’t bother me because it comes [...]

I love how much THEY teach me about themselves. There is nothing about this job that I don’t enjoy… Okay, maybe being pooped on… But honestly, even that doesn’t bother me because it comes with the territory! =)

Sweet little Nathan came for a visit on Wednesday and was such a joy to hold and adore. I am so excited that I get to walk with him and his family through his fi

I say this every time and I know I sound like a resounding gong… but I can’t believe Bennett is already 9 months old!!!! IT GOES BY TOO FAST! :)

Bennett is one of our Baby’s First Year clients, so I have the fun privilege of seeing him every three months! The sad part is, is that in three more months we will be celebrating his 12th month and fun cupcake smash!!! But first, here’s a sneak peek from his most recent session.

Product Review | Happy Acres Farm

January 15th, 2012

If you are a client, you know first hand that I make funny noises to capture the adorable smiles of your little ones! I have no shame and know I sound incredibly ridiculous!

If you are a client, you know first hand that I make funny noises to capture the adorable smiles of your little ones! I have no shame and know I sound incredibly ridiculous! But the outcomes are priceless!

At my last couple sessions I couldn’t find my adorable Happy Acres Farm camera bling to help assist me in the shoot. I even remember saying, “Where are my squeaky toys?!”

Well… Now I am NO LONGER in need! I just received two fabulous little assistants that will be joining me for my baby sessions that are just too cute! The first is Silly Giraffe who is even cuter in person!

The second is Rio, who is bright blue in color and loves being purched on my lens!

Both of my new lens bling assistants come with little squeakers that are already installed! YAY!!!! They also fit on my 50mm f/1.2 and 70-200mm lenses… So no need to worry if these will fit on Pro Lenses. These are also GREAT little assistants for parents to use on their DSLR camera lenses to capture fun shots of your kids. By no means do you need to be a “pro” to use these! =)

Below are a few other lens assistants which are available to purchase on Happy Acres Farm Etsy page. There are LOADS to choose from and are very affordable!!! Be sure to stop by both the Etsy page and Facebook Fan Page to stay up to date on all the cuteness that is happening!

Little Tomasito 9 Months {Seattle, WA Baby Photographer}

I just love walking with a family during the first year of their sweet little ones life. It is just way too much fun to watch them grow, change, and develop their adorable personalities!

I first met Little Tomasito’s family while he was still in his mommy’s tummy. And then met him for the first time for his in-hospital session and later again at his newborn session. Later that summer we met up again for his 3 month session where his sweet little personality was coming out in full force! He is just too cute!

It had been a while since I had last seen this little guy and couldn’t believe how much he had changed. He is just way to stinkin’ cute! Here’s a fun sneak peek from his session. Enjoy!

His mommy definitely has the magical touch at making him laugh!

Mom & Dad were even able to get in front of the camera for a couple quick seconds before the boys were done. =)
