Everett Family Photographer at Howarth Park Beach

A warm day, sunshine glittering off the water and bouncing off the tree leaves was a perfect way to finish Anthony’s First Year package with his 1 year photo session. We ventured down the street from Staci & Chris’ home to Howarth Park Beach in Everett. Brought along some shovels and a very clean 1 year old to spend some time on the beach where he could play in the sand, dig his toes in and transform from very clean and photo shoot ready to beach-ified and happy toddler. Well, as happy as a one year old who chose not to nap that day… but he did wonderfully.

I’ve had the fun of watching Staci and Chris grow, from their Golden Gardens engagement session and their 2009 Lord Hill Farms wedding to maternity photos and a full year of fun photographing little Anthony (check out his newborn session and 6 month session here) . Nothing is quite like watching a couple grow to be a family and then grow again as parents.

Anthony was just starting to walk, loves to laugh and was such a trooper for his 1 year photo session.

Bellevue Baby Photographer | Evelyn’s 8 month photos

A little girl and her adorable elephant. Evelyn was a bubbly 8 months old when we did this photo session. Happily clapping, adorable headbands and loving parents. She’s come a long way since her newborn portraits just months earlier.

Utilizing the Beauty of your Snohomish Wedding Venue | Jardin del Sol | Brian and Rachel

 

Jardin Del Sol is one of my favorite venues I visit every year. This wedding from last season of Brian and Rachel shows perfectly why. Jardin Del Sol is nestled in a quiet neighborhood just off of Hwy 2 and Hwy 9 in Snohomish. It’s a favorite because of it’s natural beauty, it’s beautifully manicured lawns and florals and it’s a venue that, if you are not detail oriented, and don’t have plans for lots of details in your wedding, it’s a perfect choice.

Rachel and Brian’s wedding shows just that. They were a super fun and laid back couple that cared much more for the people enjoying the day than the details on the tables and other decor. They kept decor simple, even opting to go for silk DIY wedding flowers instead of a traditional florist. The amazing thing about Jardin Del Sol is that you absolutely don’t need to add anything to the venue to have your wedding be breathtaking.  You can see in the photos below that, while decor was minimal, the beauty of the venue along with the love that Rachel and Brian share was plenty for an amazing day and beautiful photographs.

 

If you are still shopping for your Seattle or Snohomish wedding venue for next summer. I highly suggest you  see some other beautiful weddings at Jardin Del Sol that I’ve photographed and then jump over to Jardin Del Sol’s website and have a look around.

First Birthday photos of Devon | Shoreline Family Photographer

You can’t rival the excitement a one year old shows for balloons and cupcakes! Little Devon grew so much through the year I photographed him. And during our final photo shoot, the amount of happy smiles and love he showed us will likely be treasured by his parents for years!
