Coffee Here We Come! {Out of Office}

July 16th, 2009
Filed under: Around the Office, teaser

In just a few hours dear Dustin and I will be boarding an Alaska Airlines plane and heading on up to Seattle for an engagement session with Jenny and Brandon. I am super excited because Dustin has never been to Seattle and I have (this VERY rarely happens) and because we have a couple of days all to ourselves to roam around sipping coffee and seeing sights. I cannot properly express how endulgent that feels to write. I’m just really excited to meet up with Jenny and Brandon and to spend some time with my one true love.

So, I’m out of the office from NOW until Monday. We aren’t taking a computer with us, so I won’t be blogging or returning emails or anything like that. I will be Tweeting, so be sure to follow me on Twitter if you’re not already to see what wild and crazy things we do in Seattle. Until then, let me leave you with this little sneak peek from last nights AMAZING anniversary session with our beloved Lyndsay and Mike. I just don’t think I have enough room for all the crazy love I have for these two!

Lots more on the blog next week! Have a great weekend!

Kajsa {senior portraits}

Kajsa is seriously one rockin’ chick! I was so excited to shoot her senior portraits. We were blessed with some wicked cool clouds and found a really rad field to take advantage of the cool sky. Kajsa worked it out like a pro! It was seriously fun!

As an added bonus, Kajsa brought along her BFF Katrina for some fun pictures. These gals have been best friends since the 7th grade and are hilarious together. I really love it when seniors bring along a friend for some buddy shots. It always makes things so much fun.

Then we were off to the studio for some more fun shots. I love using the outside of our space as well as the inside to get some sweet pictures. Kajsa was totally game for anything, and the images turned out great.

I love Kajsa’s favorite pair of shoes. She’s had these for 5 years and LOVES them. Last night at her premier she told me she loves them, even though she can’t wear them when it rains because her feet get wet. It makes me glad we took this picture to highlight them.

Thanks to Kajsa and her uber cool family for a great premiere last nigt, and for rocking this session out like nobody’s business. Check out the slideshow HERE or below for more pictures of Kajsa’s super rad senior portraits!

We took these pictures last week, and seriously… I am in love with them! I can’t wait to get together with Kajsa and show her ALL of these!! Until then… I hope this keeps her as excited about the images as I am!

For reals! How much fun are BFF pictures? SOOOOOOO much fun!

lukas jaxon {six month portraits}

Can I just tell you how much I freaking ADORE Lukas? I ADORE HIM! He is just the most perfect rolly-polly, kissable, hugable, lovable baby and every time I get to take his pictures I am THRILLED beyond words. Lukas is one heck of a cute kid, and being able to photograph this first year of his life has been awesome. We did Luke’s 6 month portraits in the fields of flowers to mark his first spring here on earth. Luckily, he doesn’t seem to have allergies. Bonus!

I also really like that Lukas is cool with letting his parents be in on the photo action. It’s fun getting to document this cute family as their baby grows. Plus, Karlene and Shawn just happen to be two people who I love lots… so that helps too. This first picture is seriously my favorite family picture ever. Lukas is super into the motorboat sound his mom and dad make to get him to smile, and let’s be honest, when you have a baby it’s all ABOUT the baby and making the baby happy… no matter what.

Thankfully we were able to get some pics even without a motorboat sound! Talk about one cute family, huh?

Thanks once again to Karlene, Shawn and Lukas for rocking it out for the camera! How sad I am that we must wait 3 months before our next session! But at least I have something awesome to look forward to. Until then, check out the slideshow from our shoot HERE or in the box below!
