Bellevue Family Photographer | Decemeber 2011 - Photo of the Month

It looks like water drop reflections, but I believe it's really water drops magnifying the candy in the bowl.  Just a fun little personal project.

Redmond Family Photographer | Hoops!

Number 10 to the basket!  This was like watching an NBA game!  When #10 was called in, he played aggressively and was fab at the line for two points each try!

Bellevue Family Photographer | November 2011 - Photo of the Month

My sister-in-law and brother host Thanksgiving each year and my sister-in-law has a wonderful tradition.  She has a tablecloth and permanent fabric pens and we all get to write down what we're thankful for that year.  It's fun to read what everyone has written over the years and reminds us of family members that weren't able to make Thanksgiving dinner on a given year and know that they are in our thoughts and hearts.  It's a tradition worth keeping that I for one, very much appreciate.

Bellevue Photographer | New Product! | Vegan Leather Books

Vegan leather book covers!  

The book showcased above is the Black Onyx, which is a rich black "vegan leather," The surface has a very slight texture that is smooth and soft to the touch and has the look and feel of leather.  They are available in the lay-flat or standard pages.  The lay-flat pages work particularly well when you showcase one image over two-pages.  I'm excited to include an alternative to leather for 2012!

Redmond Photographer | Bobcat visitor

This one has been a frequent visitor to my yard the past month.  I was working in my office and caught the color of this bobcat out of the corner of my eye.  I always have my camera ready and captured this face shot!  If I my head wasn't buried in front of dual monitors working on post production, I would have noticed how quiet it was outside my office window, no bunnies, squirrels, or chipmunks, which I see all day long, but they all disappear when a bobcat is in their midst.

Bellevue Photographer | October 2011 - Photo of the Month

I can't take credit for this festive display.  My sister and her family always decorate their home for the various holidays throughout the year and I was so impressed with their Halloween display this year, I had to share!

Happy Halloween!

Bellevue Boudoir Photographer | Sneak Peek

Introducing Boudoir Photography!

We all know that real beauty comes from the inside, but hey, the outside is looking pretty good too!  Boudoir Photography is a great way to ignite your self-confidence, create that "special" gift for the exceptional someone in your life, or a gift for you to remind yourself of how beautiful you really are today. 
If you are interested in booking a boudoir session, please contact Julia Brown Photography here.

I have been working with different photographers over the last 10 years in all manner of photo shoots and artistic expression. I recently had a shoot with Julia Brown Photography. This particular shoot was of Boudoir style. Julia was immediately comforting and casual in a calming yet professional manner. She had many wonderful ideas and at the same time left room for all the personal expression I could hope for. She listened, gave great direction and was always checking in on my comfort level.  Julia had a great eye for light and angles. I had a wonderful time with her! She truly makes you feel beautiful.  Julia is a rare gift in the world of photography and we are blessed to have her here in the Pacific Northwest. I can't wait to work with her again!"

Bellevue Family Photographer | P. Family Sneak Peek

I met the P. Family at a very special park to grandma and her grandson, it's a local park they visit regularly.  Things really picked up when grandpa came in his big work truck!  I adore this family and if it were up to me, I would squish and kiss up those cheeks on Mr. D. throughout the session, he's just that cute and when he smiles, his eyes  light up and everyone around him!  Such a fun family!

Bellevue Family Photographer | Wild versus Pampered

This wild bobcat walked right up to my window this morning, soaking wet from the rain:

While this domesticated (rather pampered boy) was napping about ten feet away:

Redmond Family Photographer | Soccer action!

The weather was changing every few minutes from misting, to rain and then "hey, I'm getting wet and cold" rain, lots of wind and sunshine too, which is reflected in the images.

Look at Mr. D.  "The boy can jump!"

Bellevue Child Photographer | Just .ME.Session


"Always remember who they are right now."
This specific type of session has a concept-based journalistic approach documenting your child's personality and interests at this moment in time. Consider it a contemporary portrait with a storytelling result.
You provide the props - be creative, be imaginative and have fun setting the stage along with your child for showcasing their personality.  Please contact me to schedule your child's Just.ME.Session!

This is Livy's story:

She is a seven-year-old who knew what she wanted.  She put together her own Just.ME.Session.  She had a storyline about a little girl running away from home.  She came with all her props, her bright pink roll-away suitcase, and her most coveted treasures; her Teddy Bear, her stuffed animal kitten, along with her ribbons and bubbles.  For a little girl so in-charge and knowing exactly what she wanted, it's these candid images that captured this moment and where she is right now...

A beautiful little girl who still loves her Teddy Bear :)

Bellevue Family Photographer | Sneak Peek

I captured this sweet moment where Little D. wanted his parents to kiss and he was going to go to any lengths to see it happen, even if it meant grabbing mom by the hair to bring her in closer to dad.

April 2011 - Photo of the Month

Meet Beaux...

He's a four-month-old Golden Retriever with the energy and curiosity of a toddler just discovering their surroundings. He's such a sweet puppy, friendly, very affectionate and therefore he is the featured Photo of the Month! 

You all know me by now... I can hardly choose just one :)

"Batter up!"

Baby A. turns one!

I just have to say that Baby A.'s mother did, (what I'm sure) was a lot of work to host her daughter's first birthday party.  There was not one detail overlooked, right down to the beautiful handmade cards which labeled the variety of sandwiches served and the decorations were outstanding!  See the yellow flower balls hanging from the ceiling?  She made those too!  She's a loving, patient and attentive mother to both her daughters and hubby. 
A good time had by all!

Fun images from a recent dinner party...
