I seriously {love} what I have the opportunity of doing. These little babes are such a joy to photograph! I mean seriously, there is NO other {job} that I would rather do and be okay with getting pooped and peed on :)

This sweet baby girl came to the studio a few weeks ago and was so fun to meet, hold, and photograph. Generally I am able to get sneak peeks up within a few days of sessions, but things have been so busy {in a good way} around here, that it’s taken me a little longer.

Well… without further adieu, meet sweet Lucy Bee. Enjoy!

This phase in life is one of my most favorite phases to document. I absolutely {love} photographing expectant mommies and the excitement they have in the life that they are carrying.

I have a blast at all of my sessions, but this is a special one for me because this is my beautiful cousin, Adrian, and her family. We grew up together, went to the same college together, were in each other’s weddings, and now it is so fun to watch our families grow together! I can’t believe she is expecting baby #2! Wasn’t it just yesterday that we were dressing up for those Christmas “shows” we’d put on for the family???

I love this phase of life! And I am so thankful that I have this opportunity to document these beautiful moments for so many people… including my own family! Here’s a fun sneak peek from their session! Enjoy!

Wow… Where do I begin with this post? I guess from the beginning… right?

I first met this dynamic and amazing couple probably 2 years ago and immediately clicked with them. Latasha & Isaiah are incredible photographers in the Seattle area and are the owners of Latasha Haynes Photography. We had become friends over Facebook and then when we met in person, it felt like I had known them for years. They are the type of magnetic couple that you are instantly drawn to, instantly love, and instantly admire. They love God, love people, and love photography, which are three passions of mine as well. 

A little over a year ago, we were all out to dinner and Latasha turned to me and said, ”You get my first born.” I was floored. “ME?!?!” There are THOUSANDS of photographers in the Seattle area alone… and Latasha was choosing me… ME… Oh dear Lord in Heaven! I was beyond honored! Well,  a little inside scoop, Latasha wasn’t expecting at the time… But who would have thunk that just a few months later, Latasha and Isaiah would be getting the SURPRISE of their LIFE!

The road to parenthood for many parents is one filled with excitement and anticipation. For Latasha, it was a road of breaking barriers. You see, Latasha was given up at birth and spent many of her years in Foster Care… Her story is powerful, honest, and filled with hope and God’s abundant grace.

The day that the beautiful Miss Wisdom came to my studio, I was nervous. I’ll be honest. As any newborn photographer will tell you, the baby is in charge. They call the shots for their session. I had spent hours upon hours preparing mentally for their session. I wanted to not only provide Latasha and Isaiah with beautiful images, but I also wanted push myself photographically and artistically. Not to mention… I was photographing another photographer…

I have had many defining moments throughout my career as a photographer and am constantly pushing myself at every session. But at this session, everything fell right into place and just clicked. The hours of preparation paid off, and the incredibly adorable Miss Wisdom knocked it out of the park.

Like I said, I have had many defining moments throughout my career, and one of those moments was and still is, knowing this dynamic couple.

Latasha & Isaiah,

I am so thankful to call you “friend.” Photographing your precious little girl was truly an honor and I am still so honored and grateful that you asked me to capture this incredible time in your lives. I cannot wait to continue this journey with you in capturing your daughter’s First Year. God has truly blessed Wisdom with amazing parents and I pray that He will continue to bless your marriage, you as parents, and your business.

Love to you both!
Michelle

WOW! It’s been a good couple of weeks since I last posted a sneak peek! Goodness! It has been a SUPER busy summer season with LOTS of sneak peeks still to come! Thank you to all of my fabulous clients for being patient while this one-person show keeps pumpin’ out those pics for you all to see :)

One of the fun sessions I was privileged to do back in August was of this awesome family. Scott is the Worship Arts Pastor at our church and I also have the amazing opportunity to work along side him in another area that I am hugely passionate about. Obviously, photography is a huge passion of mine, but the thing that trumps that is being able to express my love and passion for God through music. This is where I draw {all} of my photography inspiration from…

Here’s a fun sneak peek from their session!

I couldn’t finish this post without doing a MAJOR shout out to this amazing couple. {They’re going to hate me for this :)  } Along with being the Worship Arts Pastor at Cascade Community Church, Scott also runs a successful recording studio, 57th Street Productions. Amongst being an incredible composer, he has also recorded Top 40 artists, national record labels, and blockbuster films just to say a few.

And if that wasn’t enough… Scott’s AMAZING wife Ali, is an incredible stage producer and is the owner of The Big Red Curtain. Ali works alongside these top music artists and teaches them that the magic of the stage, which is a combination of both science and art.

It is truly a blessing to know this incredible couple…
