I might be a little bias but I have the cutest kids on the planet! I knew the white flower trees at the Yakima Arboretum were in full bloom so I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to take some beautiful spring photos. I have some eager ready subjects that are always down for photos so I went to Sprout Again and grabbed some cute outfits, cut some branches from the weeping cherry in my back yard and headed out for an evening to play at the flower tree park. 🙂
I really love them all! It was crazy hard to narrow it down, but here are a few of my favs.
I had such a great time photographing this family on Thanksgiving. Rachel and Jeff are dear to my heart and I’m so glad they gave me an opportunity to meet the rest of their family and do a session that I know will be so special to them for years to come! Kids grow and change so fast and it’s so fun to capture them all at this age.
We had a great time taking engagement photos of Shahida and Sunny. They are both fun and have great ideas. They were totally up for anything and it was their idea to climb a tree:) We are looking forward to their wedding next year in October!
I had the pleasure of photographing Stacy and Michael’s wedding several years ago so was so fun to photograph them with their little girl and see how their family has grown! Madeleine was a little shy at first but perked up as the session went on. We worked hard and were able to get a couple smiles out of her:)
We like to update our family photo once or twice a year. We usually put the camera on a tripod, or in this case we set it on top of an apple box, and set the timer for 10 seconds and hope for the best. Sometimes we’ll get the kids to look at the camera by throwing Sophie the giraffe towards it or saying “cheese” really loudly. Often though it doesn’t work out perfectly so we’ll take lost of photos and I’ll Photoshop a bunch of pictures together to create the perfect photo. We have lots of outtakes and I actually really like those because they are real 🙂

Backstory: Ryan asked if he could see the photo on the back of the camera, we said “no, we are going to take a bunch of photos in a row and then you can go look at the back of the camera”. Bring on the tears.
Backstory: I put the kids next to each other and asked them to hug… more tears.
