Christmastime in Seattle {Seattle Family Photography}

What a fun festive morning with this sweet, sweet family!!  I had actually decided not to do any more sessions after December 10th, so I would be done with all my projects by the time the holidays came around...but when this family contacted me, I couldn't say no.  They were coming into town for a few days and wanted a session down at Pike Place Market.  How could I say no to that???


In the course of our time together, I came to find out that they both had worked in the Market at one time or another.  Dad had actually worked at this flower shop, so we had to stop.  And then we saw the mistletoe sign....


We wandered around the Market a little and had the most wonderful treats from Chukar Cherries.  If you've never been there....visit them the next time you at Pike Place Market.


Look at this amazing family!!  I had such a great time with them!  I felt like we started as photographer/client and ended as friends!  Oh...I love my job!!


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!


(Can I tell you that I secretly want to look like Mom???  I think she is just beautiful! And to top it off, she is a fellow Canadian!  O Canada....)


This little guy was just ADORABLE!!!  He is four months of pure joy, laughter and sweetness!!  If he were any sweeter, I could have gobbled him up as a holiday treat!!  (By the way, I love photographing couples in love!!)


Are there any images that I don't LOVE, LOVE, LOVE??  No...but I particularly like this one.  I am thinking we should attempt this image once a year and we'll see how their family grows and who is pulling who's hand!  (We were headed over to where Mom used to work.)




This little guy was so great during the entire session!  But eventually he just could not do it any more....it was naptime and nothing was going to stop him!


With the onset of the nap, Mom and Dad headed into a local Irish pub for a much deserving drink!!  (This family walked all over the Market with me and attempted every idea I had....I think anyone deserves a drink after that!)


Thanks W Family!!  You have no idea how fun the session was for me!  I loved meeting you, getting to watch your little guy giggle, and photographing your sweet love for one another!  Happy, happy holidays!!!
