The Baron Family (This is us!)

We love taking pictures! It was fun to take the kids to the Yakima Arboretum and let them run around and take a couple updated family pictures. We use a tripod, 10 second timer, run fast and “say cheese”. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t but I’m happy with what we got this time.

And before you ask…. yes, most the group shots are composites. It’s hard to get both kids to look at the camera at the same time:)

Geertsma Family

We had a great time photographing this family with their two new additions. Mike and Laura started looking to adopt a new baby into their family and it worked out that they found not only one baby but two! We can tell that everyone in the family loves these little guys sooo much. Their big brothers Jarrett and Gavin were so sweet with them. You can read more about their adoption journey here: https://www.facebook.com/Waiting-for-you-578631295598380/timeline/

Wilson Family Portraits

We love photographing this family every year and seeing all the little children grow. What a great color scheme this time, I love spring portraits. The Wilson family scheduled their portrait session about 6 months ago and it was set for the spring colors, but this year spring came super super early. We were super thankful to find some dogwood trees still in bloom and I actually love the pink and white. We look forward to photographing them again next year!

Natalie + Justin Family Portraits

We love this family! Kira photographed their wedding a few years ago and took their maternity photos last fall. What an honor to now be doing their family portraits with their new little one Stella. What a stinkin cute baby too, she was so adorable throughout the entire session and oh my goodness, that hair! Awesome!

Colorful Spring Family Portraits

This family is so beautiful! We loved working with Sudeep, Tharuni and their two little girls. We had originally planned to do their portrait session in an orchard but when we they saw that the crab-apple collection at the Yakima Arboretum had just bloomed we changed locations last minute… and it was totally worth it! There was so much color there and their outfits were awesome for the backdrop. We got some fabulous shots of this family, some very classic and some great candids too. Their kids were awesome, they did a great job looking at the camera and following directions. It takes a lot of patience to work with young kids but these girls were exceptionally well behaved for their age.
