What a fun day of mini sessions at a beautiful park on Bainbridge Island! I had 7 mini sessions in one day! This is the first round, the second round is in another post. I met some really amazing families with gorgeous kiddos! Every session was a little different and unique, which I love! I will have to make sure and go back to Bainbridge again in the Spring!
I love the blue outfits against the green grass! So fashionable. This family has a beautiful home and gorgeous kids!
I got some cuddle time in this week with my friend's new little guy! He did a great job sleeping and was just precious the entire time. I didn't want to give him back! I can't wait to see what a smart and fun little person he will become.
The first thing these brothers wanted to do was play 'photo hide and seek.' I count, they hide and I can take a photo when I find them! A good way to keep the session interesting!
It was a really nice weekend in the Pacific Northwest! Probably my last beach session this year and it turned out fabulously! The kids were pretty cute too!
These boys were silly and spunky and so much fun to photograph! Luckily I had balloons with me to keep them occupied. This was the first of 7 sessions in 3 days! Fall has begun!
What a gorgeous couple! I feel very lucky to have been able to do this session for one of my closest friends and her fiance! She really looks beautiful and so happy! You can see and feel the amazing connection they have. The day couldn't have gone better and the sun was shining on us! I hope these are memories that will be cherished forever.
This fall/holiday season I will be offering two types of sessions. Full one hour sessions are $275 and include about 40 beautifully retouched images on CD and an online gallery where printing is available. Full sessions can be at your home or on location. Please remember that I have a 1-2 week turn around time in the fall. Factor that in when are looking at the timeline of when you want to order and send out holiday cards/gifts!
Holiday mini sessions are $150. Perfect if you are looking for a holiday card photo! I am not limiting minis to specific days this year because I want to be able to fit everyone in! They will, however, be back to back with other sessions and only available at the locations listed below. A mini session is half an hour long and includes about 15 images on CD and online gallery. A mini is not available for in-home.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your session (the address in the photo is the same inbox).
There are the only options for minis. Full sessions can be at other locations in addition to these.
Studio: This year I will have an indoor studio space rented for one or two sunday afternoons. This will likely be on November 22nd. With enough interest I will add more days. The space is in Ballard and has a plain white floor and white wall with lots of natural light. I think it would be fun to do some holiday themed sessions! I'm thinking boxes wrapped like gifts, fake Christmas trees or a winter wonderland theme! Lots of possibilities! There would be no backup date for this location and a small cancelation fee if you cancel the day-of. Example below is not of this studio, but a similar affect can be achieved just with a white wall instead of a curtain.
Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood: November 14th only (15th as rain backup). I realize this is a bit of a long drive from Seattle, but well worth it! There are amazing old red barns, a tractor and gorgeous fields! Best with older children If there isn't enough interest in this spot because of the drive then I will switch to a Seattle park that weekend.
Arboretum: There is a spot with an adorable bridge as well as a pretty path spot with great fall leaves and a pond! This will be absolutely beautiful when the leaves change!
Discovery Park: Old yellow buildings an pretty fields! The lighthouse/beach area is not an option for minis.
Tree Farms: Trinity Tree Farm has a great fire engine! Professional photography is only allowed on weekdays. I can take 1 or maybe 2 mini sessions at Enchanted Wind tree farm on Dec. 5th. That farm doesn't mention photography on the website, so we will be stealthy!
Swanson's nursery: December only. This is a very Christmas themed location! There are reindeer, sleighs, an indoor tree farm and tons of holiday decor. Great for rainy days since everything is covered with lots of natural light.
