Sweet Home Alabama! {Bainbridge Island WA Family Photographer 98110}

{I  never thought I would use that title on my blog :).}

But that is exatly where this family calls home. 
I was lucky enough to meet them during their vacation on the Island.
I just fell in love with these two little girls.  The best feeling in the world is to have a child you have only known for an hour come up to you and give you the sweetest huge. 

I believe that what I do isn't just about taking pictures, far from it.  It is about making a connection with you.  I want to get to know you during our short time together, and along the way capture who you are and not just what you look like.

I wish the H family lived closer, as I truly enjoyed my time with them.
Who knows maybe someday I will make it down to Sweet Alabama :)!

I Heart Faces - White {Bainbridge Island, WA Wedding Photographer}

I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to enter a photo in a while.  I was curious what the photo challenge was this week at I Heart Faces, and it just so happened to be white!  And I sure have been looking at a lot of white lately :).
I love the contrast between Mother and Daughters red hair against their white dresses.
I love the white light spilling over them.
But mostly I love this tender moment as they both embark on a new journey....together.

Malcolm The Model {Bainbridge Island, WA Children's Photographer}

I love everything about shooting children.  Can I tell you a secret?  I think they are my favorite people in the whole wide world to shoot.  I love how every expression is genuine.  I never know what the next click is going to capture.  I enjoy the challenge of capturing their emotion in that moment, happy or sad, I think it is beautiful.

All children are unique and some children are more challenging than others, but Mr. Malcolm here makes my job so easy.  He was the same at 11 days old, and proved to be just as easy one year later.

Happy Birthday Beautiful Boy!!

Together {Bainbridge Island, WA Family Photographer}

I often think about what it is going to be like when our boys are grown and have children of their own.  I envision vacations, Christmas's, and Birthday parties.  And then there is this tiny voice in the back of my mind that asks, what if they don't want to be around us?  But then I remind myself of how cool I think I am :)!  Just kidding, but really I hope when they are grown they look forward to getting together with their Mom and Dad as much as we will..

Seeing this family together makes me look forward to those days even more.  Just watching them interact with their Grandchildren and seeing the joy that it brings makes me all the more excited for the future.

Here is your little sneak peek Karen!  I am so happy you asked me to document this special time!  I hope your week was incredible!  More to come soon.

Alabama Sneak Peek!! {Bainbridge Island, WA Family Photographer}

Hey Y'all!

I am finally done editing my weddings and I am so excited to start editing the several sessions that I have done this past month.

This beautiful family found me on the Internet all the way from Alabama!  They won a four day vacation to none other than Bainbridge Island of all places :)!  They stayed in the most darling cottage, and wanted to do a family session while they were here.  I jumped at the chance to be their "vacation photographer" :)!  

Here is just a few for now, but there will be LOTS more to come soon.

Happy Birthday!! {Baby Photographer, Bainbridge Island, WA}

Malcolm is turning 1!!  How did that happen?

Some of you may remember his newborn session.  He was a dream to shoot then and he certainly was a dream to shoot one year later.

Just one for now :)!
