Lance Turns One!

Our baby turned 1 today.  It seems like I was just sitting down to write his birth story.  

Of course, I had to make him a cake (definitely nothing fancy).

While he was finger-painting eating his cake, Nate kept asking him why he was making such a mess.  I had to remind him that he also made a pretty big mess the first time he had a piece of cake. 

What a fast year this has been.

  Just like when Nate turned 1, here are some of my favorite images of Lance.

He cracks us up, keeps us on our toes, and is such a blessing in our lives.  We couldn't love him any more.

And speaking of "we..."

We celebrated our 4th anniversary yesterday.  I couldn't ask for a more loving, helpful, handsome partner to raise these two little boys with.  I am definitely one lucky girl.

Seattle Family Photographer: The Bishop Family

I've explored a few different types of photography and I can tell you that nothing makes me happier than photographing children.  I love their goofy expressions, playing with them on the playground, and working to capture their true personalities.  And I guess it makes sense, because it wasn't until I had kids of my own that I realized my passion for photography.

I had the pleasure of photographing Louise's family from the popular blog, Mom Start.  Even though I had never met them, I knew we were going to have a blast the minute I met her kids. 

Thanks, Bishop family, for spending the evening with me and letting me photograph your awesome family!

Bow Wow Bling Photo Shoot

How great is my job? I got to spend the evening at a super cool dog park at Magnuson Park located along Lake Washington in Seattle photographing some of the cutest dogs ever.  Lori, from Bow Wow Bling, has created some bling-tastic accessories for dogs.  We had a fun time getting these pups all dolled up.
