Olympic Sculpture Park Family Photos

 

Oh, Indy.  With those big blue eyes.  He was very unsure of me at first, but once he warmed up he was such a ham.  He and his mom were so much fun to hang out with on a gorgeous day at the Sculpture Park and it totally reminded me of when Henry was 18-months old.  Such a busy age!  Enjoy these!

Jack Block Park Engagement Photos

 

Lindsey and Jim are getting married next year in Hawaii, the lucky dogs.  But I was lucky enough to get to spend a few hours with them having a great time creating their engagement photos.  These two are so fun to be around, and always laughing.  I loved getting to know them, hearing about their sweet engagement story and hearing about Hawaii.  Such a great session all around.  Enjoy!

Bellevue Botanical Gardens Family Photography

 

It honestly feels like just yesterday that I was photographing sweet baby Avery as a newborn.  Now she’s nearly 8 months old and absolutely as cute as a button.  Such a doll!  Enjoy!
