I was so excited about looking at the photo's taken from this beach front photo shoot that I went straight to my favorite cafe, Cafe Brosseau in Tacoma to immediately begin playing with the day's images. After sifting through and picking all of my approved photo's, I did a quick slideshow view of my faves and, not gonna' lie, I became a little teary-eyed. You see, this is a dear friend that I have known since we were about 11 years old. Best friends for many many years. And looking through the images of this beautiful woman I have shared so many fond (and crazy) memories with, now on her way to an amazing new chapter of becoming a mother, gave me an overwhelming feeling of love and joy in my heart. Congrats Lyssa...Can't wait to be Auntie Lauren to baby Tatum!
And we CAN'T forget about Scooter! He is most definitely part of the family too! 😄😍🐾
I had such a blast with these two! Both share a love for the outdoors and an active, healthy lifestyle- qualities that they are eager to share with baby Hayden (AkA Baby Danger- hehe! 😄). We escaped the rain for the most part, and were able to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the PNW with primo lighting (thank you clouds!) for our shoot. How did I get so lucky? To have a "job" where I can capture these beautiful and special moments in time for people in love?! 😍 Feeling thankful, that's all ;)
Those baby Keens!! They are killing me with cuteness right now!!!
This was one of those shoots that reminded me of why I do what I do. Sometimes I let my mind speak louder than my heart, and I get discouraged in my abilities. What matters- truly matters- is the gift I am able to give to my clients. Capturing moments like these are what I strive for, and to do it for a family that I hold SO DEAR to my heart is just the cherry on top!
