Fashion Friday - ice jewelry

It has been crazy-hot in Seattle. It was so hot we broke records here in Western Washington. Last week I had planned on doing a little fashion photo shoot for today, but the thought of putting on lots of clothes and taking pictures of myself is less than desirable right now considering I started sweating as soon as I got out of the shower this morning. So, I'm featuring some jewelry that is bound to keep anyone cool in this heat (photos courtesy of Katharina Ludwig's site):

We'll also be selling some amazing photo packages (YAY FOR DEALS!), so I encourage ya'll to come out and visit us on Saturday. We'll be there from 10am to 3pm and would love to meet you and your pups!

Fashion Friday - kitten heels

I have a confession to make: I never spend a lot of money on shoes.

In my line of work, I'm constantly running, jumping, walking, and playing which wears my shoes down super quick. I've also been known to battle the elements for the perfect shot which gets my feet wet or snowy or sandy in the process. All of these things pretty much spell disaster for my shoes.

My solution to cute shoes that are both affordable and stylish is Payless. I have a favorite pair right now that are by American Eagle and I am in love with them. Yes, a lot of the love comes from the adorable kitten heel, but most of the love comes from how comfortable they are to shoot in. Oh, and the amazing sound they make when I walk. Listen...

Hello Kiefer!

Remember Celeste, the gorgeous mom-to-be?


She gave birth to Kiefer who is the sweetest little guy! I was able to photograph him just a couple days after he was born and all I can say is he definitely got some of mom's model talent. :)




Happy family!



Check out these shoes---Kiefer is stylin' already!



Thank you Celeste, Josh and Kiefer! Can't wait to see you again for his 3 month shoot!

The Porterfield Family

You know those people that you meet and instantly like? The Porterfields are those people.

From the minute I walked in their home, I felt at home! How could you not feel comfortable when you're greeted with smiles like these?



I love that they let me photograph everywhere in their home. I started out on their awesome couch in the living room, then moved to the master bedroom where I told them to be as casual as possible. I like when things come together and don't look too posed.


We also photographed in their daughter's room, where most of the time was spent sprawled out on the floor.


We also went outside for some photos and I'm especially happy with how the pictures turned out. Can't you just feel the love they have for each other?


Did I mention they like having fun? :)


This last set is my favorite! Little G was being tickled and was laughing hysterically!


A HUGE thanks to the Porterfield family!
I can't wait to see your smiling faces again soon!

two clicks

I like carrying my little Canon point-and-shoot around because you never know when something fun might arise...like an impromptu game of bowling!

These are my 2 favorite clicks from the night:
