I was a little worried about this session as we had the family session at 1 pm and it was sunny…but I absolutely LOVED how this session turned out. Was a little overcast but the sun made an appearance which allowed me to capture some beautiful sun flares. This family is so beautiful and I enjoy photographing them!

I often provide gift vouchers to various organizations for auctions they hold and the last gift voucher was gifted to Jack and Jill Preschool in Tacoma, WA. I had the opportunity to photography this beautiful family.  These little girls were so precious! However, I could not get the little one to smile! None of my shenanigans worked. But she is still a cutie!

Eric has been a long time friend of mine and I was so excited to hear that he recently got married and they were expecting a baby boy!  So, while I was getting my tattoo by Eric (check him out, he’s the best! Arcadia Tattoo in Fife, WA) we were able to chat a little about scheduling a newborn photography session for his baby.

And here is his son, Mason!  Mason is so cute and I love all of the images I captured of this little man! Welcome to the world Mason and congrats to the new parents!

Little baby push ups, this is what Landon can do (he’s almost able to get into crawling position)!  It is so cute to watch babies at this stage and see their little bodies start to do some amazing things.  Look at this little man’s smile and gorgeous blue eyes!  And whats a photo shoot without a ride in the laundry basket with your big brother?

Have you heard of Brooks Carlston?  No? Brooks is an amazingly talented high school senior who is a songwriter/singer/musician, he does it all!  Check him out at http://www.reverbnation.com/brookscarlston

I had the opportunity to photograph Brooks for his high school senior pictures and also for some headshots for his music.  Lucky me, I was able to hear some of his playing and singing, I talked him into singing some Rush  🙂  And of course what is a session without some pictures with mom!

Good luck to Brooks and his endeavors and if you haven’t, go check him out, you won’t be sorry!maple-valley-high-school-senior-portaits-professional-headshots-kent-wamaple-valley-high-school-senior-portaits-professional-headshots-kent-wamaple-valley-high-school-senior-portaits-professional-headshots-kent-wamaple-valley-high-school-senior-portaits-professional-headshots-kent-wamaple-valley-high-school-senior-portaits-professional-headshots-kent-wamaple-valley-high-school-senior-portaits-professional-headshots-kent-wa
