SEVEN { Seattle Child Photographer }

Guess who is SEVEN today?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Seven?  Can you even believe it?  And as is tradition I dragged his little self out for a few birthday snaps.  Perhaps not his favorite activity but he always warms up to it in the end…”Hey Cookie…how about one over here?”, “Hey Cookie, take one like this.”, “Hey Cookie, how about I throw leaves at you?”  You just have to know the way to his heart.

Perhaps you can tell this may have been near the “throw leaves at Cookie” portion of our time together.  Funny little stinker.  Love, love, love him!  Happy birthday little man!

Wow! The pictures are great and really capture his happy, smileyness. You certainly found the way to his heart.

Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice { Issaquah Family Photographer }

Oh how I love this family and their beautiful little girls!  They were so fantastic and flexible this time, what with the torrential downpour and all.  After much stalking of all the weather websites and much texting back and forth (while I was standing in the pouring rain at soccer feeling very hopeless about finding some sun or at least some dry for their session) we decided on the following afternoon as our best option. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.  Unbelievably, it was absolutely gorgeous when we met….actually almost too warm for their amazing fall outfits.  Anyway, I always have a good time with them but I don’t always get to see their dad.  Can I just tell you how much they love him and how much fun it was to be able to photograph them together?  We have lots of lovely images of them with their beautiful mama from past sessions so I am super excited to be able to add these to their collection!  Alright, enough rambling.  Love these guys a ton and here are just a few of my very favorites…(though I am holding out on the family shots for their holiday card…)

Such a sweet little face.  And such gorgeous big eyes.  And that soft hair.  Sigh.  Just want to give her a snuggle.

My Little Bug

(As I type the title I am realizing that I probably shouldn’t say things like that about her anymore.  She’s ELEVEN now.  What?  I swear it was just yesterday that she was turning 2.)

This year birthday photos of all my little darlings have been tardy at best, nonexistent at worst, and I had all kinds of plans about how I was going to change that for the third and final birthday of the year.  But then the weather turned and I moved 2 client sessions to the one sunny day last weekend.  And then the poor little bug got sick yesterday, on her actual birthday no less.  Sad face.  Well we resolved our lack of birthday photos issue (ok, MY issue) in less than 12 minutes of shooting time total today and now have documentation of her turning 11…hurrah!

Here is my sweet, kind, smart, funny, lovely, and strong girl:

Love, Love, Love these pictures and the girl as well. What beautiful smiles, what a beautiful, smart, funny, loving, thoughtful, caring, clever, amazing…person she has become.

The Perfect Combination

So my biggest baby celebrated his sweet sixteen birthday not too long ago and we missed actually getting his birthday photos done in time for the big day.  (Not much of a surprise given that his birthday is smack in the middle of busy photo season, soccer season, a month of 4 birthdays in our family, driver’s ed, marching band etc…)  No worries.  He is now a professional at birthday photos and we got them done in under 15 minutes…and that included him driving us to and from our location.  He is truly an amazing human being in about a million ways and I couldn’t be prouder of him and all his many accomplishments.

Besides a few fabulous “regular” birthday photos, we managed to capture the true essence of my boy’s character.

He truly is part Dr. Evil (the hilarious and mischievous part):

and part Mr. Rogers (the so, so nice and so friendly part):

(Ok, he still looks mischievous in this one but he is doing the shoe thing even though he refused to sing the “won’t you be my neighbor” song…such a fun wrecker.)

If you know him at all, you will recognize the next few “faces” he is giving me….

By this point I am laughing so hard we are lucky any of the photos are even vaguely in focus….but that’s ok because it means he is also genuinely laughing/grinning/smiling and that is what I am after…

Here are the “real” birthday photos:

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

Love this photo in particular and love this boy even more.

Oh my goodness!!I love, love, love them both the evil ones and the actual birthday photos. I agree that he is amazing in so many ways and quite a good driver – he drove to school yesterday. I wasn’t scared for even one second.
