I was able to do a portrait session today at Kent Station (a nice change from kiddos and babies!).  I have been wanting to go to Kent Station for a while as I think it’s a good location for pictures as everything is well maintained and there are plenty of little areas. I meet Della there today and of course it was freezing cold with a tiny bit of rain.  Despite the weather, Della really shined in her session and was a real natural in font of the camera!  I really enjoyed working with Della, she seems to have a very kind heart and gentle spirit!

Korrine is the makeup artist I work with and she is expecting her second kiddo! We decided to head up to Seattle for her ,maternity session and I am so glad we did!  It was a gorgeous sunny day but it was still very cold!  Korrine is just stunning!  Korrine’s Hair was done by Missy Millan, Korrine did her own makeup,  and the gorgeous Maternity gown was made by Heather McMillen.  All three of the ladies made this maternity session possible!

My fellow photog and friend, Missy Millan, suggested an idea that I thought was super cool: pictures of our daughters in our wedding dresses.  I have to say it was nice to break out the wedding gown again and admire it. I actually will be having my wedding in about a year from now! So it was a good reminder to me to keep on working out!  Rio certainly felt like a little princess in my wedding dress, and I feel like a princess too when I have it on!  I have been toying with the idea of offering this as part of my business.

If you follow my blog, you know doubt saw the birth photography of Nicholas and Madigan Hospital.  Nicholas is the first baby, in my Bellies to Babies Campaign, to come into my home studio for his newborn photography session, last session of 2013!  Nicholas is so cute! I loved working with this newborn baby!  He as awake for most of the session which I like because I like having images of babies with their eyes open.

This little man came to my home studio in Kent for a newborn session.  He was 10 days old and 10 lbs when he was born! As soon as I wrapped this little guy up he was all smiles!  I think photographing newborns is my favorite thing !  Congrats to the parents of this handsome little guy!
