Some of My Favorite Blue Eyes {Tacoma Family - Baby Photography}

I really have the privilege of watching people's families grow!  I have been photographing this family since their firstborn was a baby, and now here we are at little sister's six month pictures!!
{And both of these kiddos have the best blue eyes EVER!!}



The star of the day....




Big brother was quite content to play with his cars...and tell me all about them!


OK, I think this picture below is just pure sweetness!







I cannot believe little Miss C is six months old!  She is beautiful  S Family!!  I always love being with you guys!!

Growing, Growing...Plants and Kids {Seattle Family Photography}

I have photographed this sweet family a few times before, but I was really excited when they contacted me this time, because of the location!  They have recently acquired an old abandoned nursery and are in the process of cleaning it up and clearing it out.  It was the PERFECT place for a family photo session!!







At one point I thought of telling all my readers that this was their new house....




There are chickens at the nursery and at one point they got out.  We (well...they) had to chase them and try to get them back in the coop!




And of course, boys MUST climb trees...simply because it is there and they can!


Thanks P Family!!  I always love being with you...and I love your new adventure!!

I got to photograph a lady the other day, who has shown her mettle.  Her name is Lisa Brewer and you can read her story here.  I was invited to join her at one of her yoga classes.  No big deal, you think?  Well, take a look at the pictures....









I am amazed at this lady's beautiful spirit and her resilience in the face of loss.  It was an honor to photograph her!!  I encourage you to go to her blog and read her story!

You Never Know...{Tacoma Family Photography}

You never know what you are going to get as far as photographs when you have 3 boys...but I think what we got was a little nice and a lot of real life!! 

We snapped a few family pictures right before oldest brother's senior pictures...(shown below) showing that sometimes life with mom and dad gets a little squishy!


Nice family...


Naughty family...(just look at the love on the left!)


A bit silly family!!  (So I have a confession to make...the boys really did not want to do this, but I am so glad they did!!  I think it shows "life with boys" quite well!!)



Thanks C Family!!  It was great to hang out with all of you for a little bit!!

Class of 2013: Jake {University Place Senior Photography}

Meet Jake...quite the charmer and great golfer...



He went down to Mexico on a missions trip this year and totally had a great time.  So glad he picked up the jacket too!  Real men wear pink!!



It was a {gasp!!} sunny day in the Pacific Northwest, but the wind was blowing like crazy!!  I kept telling Jake that I am glad he had short hair...the wind couldn't mess it up!









It was fun to hang out with you Jake!!  I wish you all the best in your future!!
