West Seattle Newborn Photography

Even though I mostly work on the Kitsap Peninsula, I do hop across the pond to Seattle from time to time!  I don't mind traveling if I get to take photos as sweet as these!  And of course, this little guy just happens to be my nephew. 💙

Where the faeries are... {Kitsap Family Photography}

Where are the fairies? Where can we find them?
We've seen the fairy rings, they leave behind them when they have danced all night,
Where do they go? Lark, in the sky above, Say, do you know?
It is a secret, no one is telling.
Why, in your garden, surely their dwelling!
No need for journeying, Seeking afar:
Where there are flowers, there fairies are!"
--Cicely Mary Barker

I am so excited to share images from this very magical photo session!  So much love and imagination went into making this session a reality!  My beautiful client and her daughter dreamed of being faeries in the woods, so I set about creating by hand some whimsical fairy wings just for this shoot.  Combining three of my passions - photography, theater, and textile design - this was truly the most inspirational project!  I cannot wait to do more fantasy photography and collaborate with other artists and clients to create fantastic custom costuming combined with gorgeous Pacific Northwest scenery and make more fairytale dreams come true!!  A mermaid tail is already in the works and I'd love to do some shoots that involve animals - horses maybe?  (Read: unicorn) or possibly collaborate with some wildlife preserves to do some fantasy shoots that feature and promote activism that benefits wild and/or endangered local species???

But back to my faeries...these photos took place just a week before this sweet little fae child starts Kindergarten.  A lovely photoshoot to document those sweet, tender moments between mother and daughter and the transition from toddlerhood to childhood.  I am so happy I could capture the magic of this day, for this enchanting duo.  Enjoy.

Baillie Family at Lincoln Park - Sneak Peek! {West Seattle Family Photography}

Had an absolute blast photographing the beautiful Baillie family this morning in West Seattle! Lincoln Park is such a versatile location - water, woods, playground, fields, fallen trees.  It's a photographer's dream!  I loved chasing these two little boys around and I'm so happy I could capture these sweet moments!  Thank you Baillie fam! xo

We made it to Seattle!

We did it!  We made it across the country, from eastern North Carolina to Seattle, Washington with 4 kids and a horse trailer with our dogs in it in tow!  We took 6 nights to get across and tried to stop at at least one major attraction each day.  Here are a few travel photos from our trip through West Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana and Idaho.
