Happy Valentine’s Day

From our trip to the beach a few weeks ago. <3

Happy Valentine's Day

Singin’ in the Rain

I’m discovering just how spoiled I was by the weather in TX – it’s tough doing outdoor sessions here in the winter! If the rain doesn’t get you, the cold and the gray will.  Still, the “D” family, also recent transplants to Seattle, showed up ready to rock it out in their raincoats and umbrellas! Here are a few sneak peeks from their session.

Let it rain...

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.
