Point No Point Lifestyle Family Session

 

 

One of my greatest joys as a photographer is to be able to deliver galleries filled with images that really f e e l like your family. Images that authentically capture your family, preserving your story in a timeless way. Documenting little details you wish to remember forever.

I am so grateful this family entrusted me with their family photos.

Seattle Sunset Family Session

 

I love creating a connection with my clients before we meet in person for our session.  I do a phone consult and I find that it allows for us to break the “ice”. During my consult with this family, mom shared that her girls haven’t been comfortable being photographed in the past. She shared a few images she hoped we could capture.

I am happy to report that we not only documented the moments she had hoped for, but that her girls were able to fully relax and allow for natural laughs and smiles to shine through.

Snoqualmie River Family Session

 

I met this sweet family at soccer practice, the dad was one of the coaches. It was such a great season!

Since then they have supported, loved and blessed my family through some of our darkest moments. I am so grateful to have met such a genuine and loving family! It was an honor to return the blessing.  We had so much fun at this session, playing games, throwing rocks in the river, building sand castles and creating memories.

This is one of my favorite locations to shoot at, it has beautiful lighting and the river is right at the base of Mt.Si.

Great question!

As our family grows so does our schedule. Life can tend to get busier and busier, and we may move so fast that we lose sight of the beauty and love growing in our own families. We adapt to this and can become beauty-blind to the goodness thriving right before us in our families.

This session is a perfect example of why investing in a professional photographer is SO worth it. 

From these photos which little girl do think was throwing a fit for most of the session? Can you guess? Maybe if you have the trained eye of a mama, but I would venture to guess you can’t immediately tell.

This mama and her family were traveling to WA from TX visiting family. The girls were TIRED, out of their element, out of their routine and up early for our session. One little girl warmed up to me quickly and even let me hold her; the other little one just wanted her mama and to be HOME. I get it. I get can get that way too towards the ends of a vacation. It happens.

The mama in this session is also a photographer, and she was quite concerned that we weren’t able to get any good shots. From her point of view (right in the middle), things didn’t seem so good. But to me, all I saw was love, snuggling, laughter, big emotions pouring out, the gentleness of a mama’s unconditional love, silliness and tenderness. When we are right in the thick of things, it’s hard to see the truth and beauty of what we are experiencing.

That is the incredibly wonderful thing about hiring a professional photographer: they see things from an entirely different perspective – a fresh one, maybe one you haven’t noticed before. They are able to stand close by and help you find the love and beauty growing in your family that you might be blind to.

Traveling is good for the soul

“We travel because distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. When we get home, home is the same. But something inside of our minds has changed, and that chances everything. — Jonah Lehrer”

I am a born and raised Washingtonian, and while I do love it here I also love to explore and experience new places. When I was growing up I always thought I would want to live somewhere else, the idea of staying in my home town was appalling. I wanted to travel. As an adult I have gone a handful places around the US and have discovered that Washington has my heart. The ocean, trees and mountains will always be home to me.

For the past few weeks I have been experiencing this urge to travel, not to any place specific just a strong urge. It feels like a little seed has been planted and I am excited to see what blooms from it, where I end up going to!

My sister in law flew me down to AZ to take the photos below. While I was there I was able to book another session (also below). I was honestly a little bit nervous because I had never shot there and didn’t know any good locations with nice lighting to go to. But everything fell into place and unfolded SO beautifully it gave me the confidence to want travel to new places with all new scenery and lighting!

We started out in their home and then ventured out to some near by mountains. It was HOT guys… literally I the 100s!

 

Embarrassing side note while driving to out location I was trying to buckle my seat belt and accident un did their daughters car seat, seat belt and we had to pull over, take her out of her seat to re attach the seat belt… I felt so bad and was SO embarrassed lol

“The moment a child is born, a mother is also born.”

Motherhood sessions hold an incredibly special place in my heart. I haven’t quite nailed down what exactly about them sets my soul on fire. But something does and I feel a creative high. I will drive home smiling ear to ear with joy.

I leave full of passion and I can’t wait to edit them. Maybe because I am a mother myself and so I set out to create images that I would want to hang on my wall.

I aim to capture moments that will stand the test of time. Images that bring you right back to how it felt during that season of life.

My hope is for this mama to look at these photos years later and remember her daughters love of find rocks, looking and listening for birds, swimming in the cold river, building dams and to be incredibly silly.

My goal and hope is to tell the story of how your life really felt during that season.

GROWTH

When I first started into my photography journey, I took pictures of anything and everything. I tried all different types of genres – weddings, couples, engagement, people and their pets, events, births and more! It took me awhile me to find what really set my soul on fire. After lots of trial and error I found my passion — working with families.

“Families are like branches on a tree, we grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one”

When I first met this family I was in my experimental phase (discovering what I love) and they were just a couple. They were so much fun to work with, silly and willing to try my weird ideas. I had them stand on either side of a tree and jump out at each other… lame I know. I honestly had no idea what I was doing, but I tried to act like I did, guiding the couples session.

“Be not afraid of growing slowly, only of standing still.”

Fast forward a few years, I got a chance to photograph them again and meet their beautiful daughter! It was just as much fun working with them again and this time I knew more of what I was doing.

I honestly never thought I would want to shoot in the city. I didn’t like all the concrete or potential backdrops. I have never found cities that beautiful, for me I have always found true beauty in nature. Mother Nature is a damn good artist!

But recently my husband and I went on a date night and walked around the city at golden hour and it was absolutely beautiful! I saw everything in a whole new light, literally. I loved the leading lines, framing, backgrounds and beautiful lighting I found. I was surprised! I knew I had to do a session down there. This family was perfect for what I had envisioned.

I throughly enjoy working amongst the trees in nature surrounded by natural beauty. But change is a good thing! Keeps you on your toes and keeps you inspired.

So if I am being completely honest here, I used to hate indoor lighting… I didn’t understand how to use it, or what “nice lighting” looked like in a home and always, always left feeling defeated dumb and frustrated. But living in Washington, we get a lot of rain and I REALLY wanted to understand it and know how to find that nice lighting.

So I practiced a ton around my home and I did in home sessions with clients. I learned lessons the hard and painful way, I learn best by doing, failing and trying again it seems. One of the biggest things I learned was to walk around all the rooms my clients want to use, opening up all of the windows and finding beautiful lighting to use.

This was one of my first in-home sessions I felt really proud of. I took my time, walked around their home and tested out different lighting. This mama and her beautiful girl helped make my job easy! I LOVE working with them!
