Team Beer

Yes I'm behind on blogging, but I've got a good reason this time! I've been in Arizona participating in the 22nd Annual Arizona Hockey Classic.

I played on Team Beer (great name, huh? :) ) and we came in 2nd place for our division. Not too shabby for a team that's never played together before! We were a hodgepodge mix of friends and friends-of-friends. Our players traveled from Seattle, Philly, California and even Alaska to play in the tournament. My body is aching and exhausted, but I had so much fun playing with the girls! I can't wait until next year when we do it all again, but for now I'm going to enjoy a little bit of rest...and the massage I've scheduled. :)

A day off!

Yesterday was a fantastic day off. Yes, I finally took a day off from working and it was heavenly. Started out by playing tennis at a court in Kirkland that has an amazing view of Lake Washington. I lost the match, but had a great time anyway since my friend Doug is super cool and doesn't rub it in when he beats me.

Then I went home to grab a bite to eat and just layed around, enjoying doing nothing. Yep, nothing. It was fabulous!

After that, I picked Nate up from work and we headed over to Doug's for a BBQ with his roomies followed by an evening ride in one of their boats.

I could get used to this kind of lifestyle. Well, almost. I love my clients and my job so much I'd have to schedule at least a few photo sessions a week. :)

somebody loves me

I am not a morning person, but waking up at 5:30am became a little easier when I saw this on the floor next to my bed...

A loves N too. :)

Superstar Thomas!

As I'm sitting at my computer, the rain is pouring outside. Crazy to think that just a few days ago I was photographing little Thomas at the Bellevue Downtown the sun! We had so much fun during his b-day session. We played on the toys at the playground, kicked the soccer ball on the grassy field, played Follow the Leader on the stone wall, and watched ducks by the waterfall.

Who says a photo session for a 2 year old isn't fun? :)

I think this last one is my favorite from the session...

You're a superstar, Thomas! :)

sexy and fun maternity session!

Sometimes you meet a client and everything just *clicks*.
Perfect subject, perfect setting, perfect weather, perfect lighting, perfect props. Yep, I definitely hit the photo jackpot with Celeste! She proves that pregnancy photos can (and should!) be hot and sexy.

I love the ones we took at Kerry Park in Seattle...

We shot indoors as well and took advantage of the gorgeous light inside her home...

For even more variety, I brought a black background and set up a studio inside her living room...

Thanks again Celeste!
I can't wait to meet your little one in a couple weeks! :)

more baby Allison

Allison is only a few days old and already she's had 2 photo shoots! This time she slept through the whole session and we were able to get some gorgeous pictures, including a couple with mom and dad too! :)

2 of my favorites

Elvis and Mitzie are 2 of my favorites dogs, not just because they've got lots of personality, but also because I really love their owners. Dennis & Patricia are so much fun and I love any excuse to hang out with them and their pups. Patricia was out of town for the weekend, so Dennis and I took the opportunity to do a surprise photo shoot for her. How sweet is he to think of that?!

Here are a couple shots from our photo session:

Mitzie's the sweet one without a collar...

... and Elvis is the spunky one with a collar:
