This was a special double birthday party for Chloe who turned 11 and Darsie who turned 7. They are both amazing girls, so fun, so full of life, so determined in everything they do. Every year they have a joint family birthday party to celebrate, and this year was no exception. Their great-great aunt took...
Gig Harbor Photographer
I know it's cliche, but I have always loved photography. I've just loved to be able to capture a moment in time and be able to remember that for years to come. As a mother of three I have really come to understand the importance of photographs and having them as the kids grow at an astonishing rate. It's not just the kids that I want photos of though, it's life as it is now that I want to capture.
Because I want to capture you and your life, I do all of my photography on location. The session can be at your home, a park, the beach, an open field, the mountains, the city, or wherever is comfortable for you. There are so many beautiful places to choose from in the Puget Sound area! I don't use a lot of props or do a lot of exact posing. I prefer to have people interact normally while I sit back and capture what is going on. I will help set the scenes and will often chat with you, but you'll never hear me say cheese. I prefer that parents not encourage that from their children either.
I am a very relaxed person; I want you to be relaxed too. If we are doing a session with just the kids, I still like for the parent(s) to be dressed such that they wouldn't mind being in the photo. Sometimes young ones get nervous and want you there; sometimes we will do fun things like spin the child around; sometimes I'll capture a totally unplanned moment. You have been warned ;)
