This is what 40 years of marriage can create. Loved photographing this generations portrait featuring the Brunsch Family 😀 I want to go on record by sharing that their sweet new addition slept like 90% of the session and none of the flash popping or passing around even stirred him in the slightest (where was that kind of sleep when I had my own three kiddos #BitterPartyOfone ) For more family portraits, be sure to check out our gallery
Beautiful girl right? And you actually would never guess that “good sport” and “tough” might fit the bill here too for 2016 Senior Ellie 😀 Fall is a really interesting time of year because it can be super pretty… but also kinda flipping cold too. Here is gorgeous Ellie in her flowy little sundress rocking the shot in downtown Issaquah — but looks can be deceiving. Check out this behind the scenes pull back that we posted on our Instagram (photo credit goes to her Mommy) — um… yes I am wearing a parka (haha!)
Shout out to Sorella Salon for Ellie’s camera ready hair & make-up
I have been doing the equivalent of screaming from the rooftops for anyone that will listen — THIS IS IT…best time for outdoor Fall Family pictures is literally right now!!! I mean it is just gorgeous and Mom Linda did her very best planning for her family of five. She dressed them to perfection, she blew out her gorgeous blond hair and if she is anything like the rest of us Mom’s — she begged her family to “act right” as the one and only request that she will ever have of her beloved family (because that’s what we Mom’s covet… “amazing images to prove that we like one another” (haha…I know I’m not alone here right? 😛 ). Then on the day of our shoot — it rained. BOO! But never fear… a miracle happened. It stopped. Yep….seconds before we began clicking… and all was right with the world (and our shoot). Umbrellas in hand we headed outside and by some lovely turn of fate… we did not need them at all. Whoohoo!!!
So if any of you have caught my recent attempts at channeling my inner Martha Stewart #CookieFail then you will understand why I am completely green with envy every time I do a photo shoot with Monica Hart for 425 Magazine. The true disconnect of course is that she makes it look so easy! (Probably on par with watching a professional ballerina from the comfort of your audience seat and secretly thinking… “ya know… I think I could totally do that!” 😛 For this shoot we were on location at the beautiful Woodinville Lavendar Farm on a perfect Seattle morning and for all of us that love brunch… it just does not get any better that this.
So we are totally wanting in on THIS cute conversation! Twins Mac & Belle are just beyond adorable and it is hard to believe it’s already been almost a year since our first family portrait session. Last time we had a raucous good time in the studio for a formal holiday look and this year we headed over to the family’s beautiful home for some puddle jumping good fun. The entire shoot was sponsored by Seattle raindrops but none of it dampened anyone’s spirits! (As a matter of fact, the babes may have had more fun the muddier we got!)
