Sweet Elle | Duvall Child Photographer

I love what I do…

I have been photographing Elle since she was in her mommy’s tummy for her maternity portraits, and then throughout her first year and every year after that… I have had the privilege of watching her grow to become such a beautiful and special little girl.

Being a photographer, for me, is not about just “taking pictures” and getting paid for it. It is about documenting the lives that are so beloved and journeys that we all take. It is about the emotion that is wrapped up in every photograph that will be cherished for a lifetime. It is about the moments that make you stop in your house and gaze upon the images that adorn the walls and halls… THAT is what being a photographer is  all about for me.

I love what I do.

I consider it an honor and privilege every time I am invited to be a part of someone’s life. And I thank God for this gift that I am able to share with so many.

Have I mentioned that I love what I do?

Wowza! This past month has been one FULL and FUN month! It has been so fun to see so many returning clients again as well as meet so many fresh new and beautiful faces! And I wanted to share all that has been taking place these past couple of weeks in one big sneak peek post.

I have been brainstorming new and exciting things that I can’t wait to implement for 2014! One of our newest endeavors is providing Newborn Workshops for aspiring photographers! I have been teaching 1 on 1 Mentoring Sessions over the past 3 years and am so excited to create a classroom experience where more photographers can come together and learn about the importance of newborn photography safety.

In the meantime, here is a little sneak peek of what has been taking place! Enjoy!

Weddings, Maternity, and Newborn Photography is what I am known for. However, I will on occasion photograph seniors, which is fun! I have clients driving from all parts of Washington for their sessions. From as far south as Vancouver, WA to as far north as Oak Harbor. It is truly an honor when clients ask me to capture memories for them, but an even bigger compliment that they are willing to drive hours for me to do so.

This senior session was a special one for me because Josh is my nephew. He and the fam drove up from Olympia, WA for his session so it was a double bonus!! We had a blast during his session! Here’s a sneak peek. Enjoy!

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 [...]

 

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…
