Specializing in lifestyle, party, and event photography in the Seattle metro area

City Girl

It’s hard to believe that 4 months have gone by since our move to Seattle. How quickly our lives have changed! I think my daughter has had the biggest adjustments to contend with since she had never lived anywhere but Texas, whereas the hubby and I both spent many years living in Chicago. So all the noise, the walking, not to mention the rain and the cold have been a bit tough on E.  Still, she soldiered on like a champ while I dragged her around town the day after Thanksgiving for our annual holiday card photo, although she wasn’t particularly cooperative when it came to removing her coat. Ah, such is life with 4-year-olds!

Here are a few of my favorite outtakes.

And here is the one that went into the mail.

New City, New Start

Seattle, Gasworks Park, Lake Union, Space NeedleSo as some of you may already know, my family and I have recently relocated to Seattle!  While a move of some sort was not totally unexpected, the timing and speed with which it all happened definitely left me in a bit of a daze.  It’s taken me a few months to get settled, get my bearings, and get back to editing, and I sincerely thank those of you who have waited patiently for discs!  I am finally wrapping up the last of my Dallas sessions (*sniffle*) and should have everything in the mail this week.

Also, I wanted to give heartfelt thanks to all of my friends and family for supporting my business, short-lived though it was.  I do hope to get things up and running soon here in Seattle, and I will be expanding my services to include lifestyle sessions, in addition to party photography.  Those of you in the Seattle metro area, stay tuned for announcements of free and discounted sessions!

Park Playdate – {Dallas Plano kids lifestyle portrait photographer}

I’ve been toying with the idea of adding another type of session to my product offerings, but I wanted something that was true to the spirit of what I’m already doing with parties: more candid and less posed; I love capturing kids being kids. :) So when a friend suggested having me photograph her three boys at the park, I jumped at the chance.  She invited a few other families to join us, and I brought my husband and daughter as well.  Fun was had by all, well until all the kids got hungry and melted down, haha.  Here are a few sneak peeks from last weekend’s playdate.

“S” was a bit of an unhappy camper by the end and only wanted to sit and wait to leave. Ah kids, so fickle. ;)

Mad Scientist Party — {Dallas Plano kids party photographer}

“H” aspires to be a chemist when he grows up, so it was only fitting that he had a mad scientist-themed party at the Museum of Nature & Science for his 7th birthday.

There were lots of fun experiments, including one where the kids all made their own party favors – slime!
