Bonney Lake Family Photographer

The R Family | Tacoma Family Photographer

I had the privilege of working with both Bill and April at my previous job, so it was a lot of fun to get to have that opportunity again! They are hilarious, super nice and their three girls are so sweet and photogenic! 

Fall 2014 Mini Sessions

As I'm playing catch up on blogging this Friday morning, I'm also planning Spring 2015 mini sessions!! So keep your eye open for that later today or tomorrow! 

I had the awesome opportunity of working with several different families last fall for my annual mini sessions! These sessions are quick and range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes, but I was beyond happy with how each of them turned out! Check out some examples below :)

The Vines Family | Bonney Lake Family Photographer

This family session was especially exciting to me because they were announcing the pregnancy of their third sweet baby! It was also one of the coldest mornings I've ever been out for a session and the boys were red nosed and frozen! We did the session as quickly as we could and still got some beautiful images I wanted to share! 

The W Family | Bonney Lake Family Photographer

One of my very favorite session types is baby's six month session! Sweet baby Sam just turned 6 months old and he was full of smiles! I love this age because they are just starting to be able to sit unassisted and are also really engaging. It was so much fun doing silly dances and faces to get Sam to smile and talk! His mom, Meagon, had one request to get a shot of him sitting his cute little naked tooshy next to some cowboy boots! I don't think it gets much cuter than that!! We met at the old dairy farm in Puyallup and the rustic location was perfect for those boots and that hat! Check out some of my favorite images below! :)

Lena and Kelly | Bonney Lake Maternity Photographer

I used to work with Lena, so this session was a lot of fun for me! I remember seeing Kelly come visit Lena during her lunch break before they got married, and now to see them expecting a little one in a couple short months is amazing!

How sweet are these two together? And how gorgeous is Lena?? She wasn't sure if she wanted to get in the water, but she braved it and I couldn't be happier!!

Caitlyn | Bonney Lake Maternity Photographer

I met up with beautiful Caitlyn and her sweet little family for what ended up being a session completely after my own heart! Their interactions, willingness to be a little crazy and the light were the top contributing factors! There is something so peaceful, beautiful, and serene to me about maternity sessions. Maybe the calm before the storm?! No, just kidding! Kind of... LOL

Thank you, Caitlyn, for being SO adventurous, trusting and sweet! You are so gorgeous and I can't wait to meet your little boy!!

 

Davis Family | Bonney Lake Family Photographer

You may remember Meagen from the two senior sessions I did for her! Well, this time she graduated and I got to photograph her with her immediate family along with her grandma, aunt and uncle! This family is so silly! From photobombs to sibling piles, I'm pretty sure I laughed through the entire session! Meagen graduated from high school and college at the same time thanks to Running Start and a lot of hard work. Check out the photo below to see how her big brother feels about her graduating college before him!!

Shelly and Chloe | Bonney Lake Glamour Photographer

I have to start this by saying that I have a VERY special place in my heart for mother daughter photo sessions. I love every single photo that my mom and I have together, but ever since having my daughter, that love has, well, doubled! I think every mom and daughter should have really simple, gorgeous photos together! I think there is something so beautiful and classic about studio portraits, and as much as I love outdoor photos, I feel like studio portraits add a little something extra to these heirlooms.

Chloe was 12, just about to turn 13, at the time these were taken. Her and her mama, Shelly, came to my home studio in Bonney Lake, we snapped a quick before shot and then started hair and makeup right away! I had SO much fun during this session and hope to do more with these two lovely ladies in the future!

Lisa | Bonney Lake Glamour Photographer

I did Lisa's family photos at the end of last year and was SO excited when she contacted me for glamour photos! Recently, she lost over 100 pounds!!! How incredible is that?! She looks phenomenal!

Brooklyn is 18 Months! | Bonney Lake Child Photography

This little girl is very special to me! Her mama and I used to work together and we were pregnant at the same time. In fact, our daughters are only 6 weeks apart! Brooklyn is so full of silliness, smiles, laughs and sweetness. Her mom wanted to try an urban setting, but Brooklyn had other ideas in mind! We ended up over at a little park across the street. Love this family and I can't wait to photograph their family session this fall!

Adriah and Kiana | Bonney Lake Child Photographer

These two girls are simply beautiful! Their friendship, their innocence, their sense of humor. I loved everything about this session! Adriah and Kiana are best friends and it was so much fun to document their giggles and adventures!

Baby Quinn | Bonney Lake Newborn Photographer

It was such a pleasure meeting the K Family, especially after the new addition of sweet baby Quinn! It took her a little while to settle at first, but once I put her on her side and belly she was out and so comfy! Her big sister Maci was SO good with her and truly surprised me at how well behaved she was for photos. She is only 17 months! I'm so grateful to have been able to capture such a special and fleeting moment in this family's life!

The L Family | Bonney Lake Family Photographer

I was so very excited to photograph this family! They are so funny and sweet and just so happen to have an adorable little 4 year old boy named Kyan! We decided to have their family session in Bonney Lake a couple hours before sunset. My favorite part about this location is the beautiful wildflowers, and I was so happy to see they were in full bloom! Kyan was so great about posing for some family shots and then was more than happy to let me get some candids of him running and riding his bike!

Melissa and Sierra - Bonney Lake Family Photographer

Since becoming a Mom last year, I have become insanely passionate about photographing parents with their children. So when I got the opportunity to photograph Melissa with her daughter, Sierra, I was all over it! We met at this gorgeous buttercup field in Bonney Lake for an evening session.

Melissa is a former marine and now runs a golf course. How cool is that?! These two have such an amazingly close relationship and it was so obvious during their session. Every mom needs a session like this with her daughter or son. I know that Sierra will cherish these photos of her and her mom and eventually pass them down to her own children. Existing in photographs is so very important to your children!
