It’s Okay Buddy – Family Session

This little guy just had me melting. He was very shy and very nervous. He held tightly to mom and although I am not sure if mom, I or he said it first, but each time he would get extra nervous, he would repeat, “It’s okay buddy.” It was the cutest, yet most heart-breaking thing to hear. I just wanted him to just let go and have fun with it all. He did enjoy the different chairs and I did get a few smiles and giggles. But he would have rather just had some fun toys to play with instead of a camera and having to sit and smile. He did so well for being so unsure of it all. I’m sure next time, he’ll notice me and remember that I’m not so bad after all.

Just Have Fun With It – Sibling Session

Mom wanted a variety of formal and fun images. And you know me, I am to please. The first half of the session we used the recent school portrait mini session backdrop to get the “school picture” feel. I kept going back and forth on the second backdrop to use and finally went with white. I have not done a high-key white backdrop in so long that some of my equipment was dusty. Woah! But once I got it all set up and the kids got on my floor, the fun began. The floor I use is one of those that attracts the sliding, twisting and turning. So I just let them go at it. I love the look of that white… I need to use it more often.

Thanks mom for letting us all just do whatever we wanted. I had a lot of fun and the kids were perfect!

Taking The Fun Outside – 1st Birthday Session

The last time we saw this little guy, he was just  12 days old. I was thrilled to be able to share his first birthday celebration with him and his family. Our weather here on Whidbey Island was beautiful on the day of this session. We found a quaint little spot on a trail here in Oak Harbor and set up a small, yet colorful set.  He was full of energy so we kept things moving quickly. He didn’t dig into his cake but he sure did enjoy biting into it while still keeping himself quite clean.

Just the Two of Us – Mom & Me Family Session

After discovering that the original park we wanted for this session had closed off access to their docks, we had to decide on the spot what to do. Mom wanted a little bit of beach and a little bit of fields so we headed to Joseph Whidbey State Park. Everything started out great, until our trail was longer than expected and I got a little turned around. With the sun and warm weather, both mom & I’s allergies began to chime in and so we quickly headed out of the fields were in. We headed to the beach to find the tide was in. This left us with little to no sand. But we made the best of it and got some great images.
