Meet the newly expanded Tamola Family. I am going to start by saying that I’m totally not taking it personally that Baby Michael slept the ENTIRE…and I do mean entire photo shoot (let’s be honest…at just 4 weeks, he is very busy growing). His big sister more than made up for it though — boundless energy and such a joy! We did slow down for one quiet moment and she got to hold her brother…all by herself for the very first time…awwwweee! Oh and on a fashion note, I’m completely crazy for Mom Josephine’s style choices of red and navy….the argyle pattern on Dad’s sweater vest and Baby’s navy pin stripes were the perfect compliment to all of the girls red textures.

Senior Pictures in the City — Oh-So-Chic when it’s Madeleine from Lake Washington High School in her lace little black dress! The Kirkland WA, Senior was totally reminding me of the actress from Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike I know you have to be totally curious now to see if I’m right (AND I AM) so go ahead and give yourself permission to go peek (heehee)
Meet the poster family for “HAPPY HOLIDAYS 2014!” Might have to add an honorable mention of “Best Dad Award” — it clearly goes to Daddy Charles who got the dance party started with his three ladies in hot pink. This time of year always feels like the happiest of reunions for me. I’m really blessed that many of our clients share their family pictures tradition with me and if your thinking that the Wadlow Family looks familiar — well then I owe you a BIG thank you because you have obviously been reading the blog for quite some time. Here’s a quick link to the Wadlow’s sessions over the years — crazy to think we have shared so many of life’s milestones…maternity, newborn, birthdays and many Christmas portrait sessions together! On a side note — I know a lot of you Mom’s are looking for wardrobe inspiration for planning your own family pictures for the holidays so go ahead and take a page from Mom Michelle’s styling book — pick three colors and then get creative mixing patterns, textures & accessories. Also…embrace a trend or two — a big one we’ve seen this season for families is choosing unique colors beyond the Merry Christmas red & green
Last but not least, if you are looking for our Annual Holiday Special K.I.S.S Event (Studio Session + Holiday Cards) for November here’s your link to the details.
Don’t let Aoife’s relaxed expression and the streaming sunshine fool you — the Irish beauty and Eastside Catholic High School Senior is making it look easy…it’s freezing (and that was before the wind kicked up.) I’m standing in a parka and fur boots, she’s rocking a floral dress and sky high heels and I’m thinking to myself…I KNOW I’ve got the better deal here Swear to you…she didn’t utter even one sideways comment…funny and lovely the entire photo shoot! I also posted another favorite on our Facebook page here.
I honestly don’t know why at some point during all of my children’s portrait sessions– and I do mean ALL of them…we end up in a pile of giggles on the floor — but we do. Olivia in her royal blue formal frock and Brennan in his faux hawk and bow tie combo — laughing, uncontrollably following a very ambitious dance party! What a joy-filled job I have It’s almost hard for me to wrap my mind around how much they have grown since our last photo shoot together and I wasn’t content to just share these — I also posted another of my favorites on our Facebook page here.
