This is just a snippet of what we were able to capture during our 3-hour in-home session. I arrived just as beautiful Miya was awaking from her nap, so she’d be fresh for our session. With twins on the way we decided to do the session early in Olivia’s pregnancy. I couldn’t have asked for a better set of folks to team up with to create a document of love, family style! Thanks Van, Olivia and Miya!

Last Fall, I had the privilege to photograph another photographer’s family. This is a big honor (and alittle nerve wracking! -:)). They chose an extended family session which comprised in-home documentary and then some outdoor photojournalism and portraits at Seattle’s Discovery Park as the sun was setting.  Thanks for a great session Nicole, Mike and Leo!

I photographed Geneva as a newborn and had the privilege of photographing her again last week at 13 months in her home on Queen Anne in Seattle in one of my favorite types of family photography sessions, documentary. Sure, there was a portrait or two in there, but mainly I photograph as life with a toddler unfolds-waking up from a nap, testing out the potty, playing with dad, learning to walk and eating the healthy green stuff mom makes! The three-hour session produced over a hundred “keepers” that I hope the family with cherish forever.
