More Newborn Snuggles Coming Soon!

Could this Newborn be any Sweeter?

Heather photographed the family while they rested at home after the birth of their son in North Seattle, Washington.
This family just radiates peace and joy, don’t you think?

I know everyone loves a chance to ogle the squishable sweetness of a newborn baby, so I have a treat for you!  Here is just a sneak peek of the gorgeous, delicious baby A from the V family in North Seattle- one of my favorite families to photograph ever!

A Special Kind of Sleep

I love photographing newborn babies.  There is something so delicate and yet so powerful about their tiny, miraculous bodies. How is it that they are able to sleep so soundly and peacefully? And why don’t they do it at night, when we want them to?

The baby is swaddled loosely in a burgundy blanket and resting comfortably on a brown woven background.
Sweet Dreams, Little One.

Sibling Magic

Whatever the answer to the mysteries of newborn slumber, I do know that there is a special magic when new siblings come together in front of my camera. This little one has a big sister who charmed my camera’s lens a few months ago when she posed for violin portraits, and her unbounded affection for her new baby brother shines through in every pose.

Mukilteo Beach Tween Photography Session

Laughing Magpies Photography Loves Tweens and Teens in Mukilteo

When the H family asked me to photography their tweens in Mukilteo, I leapt at the chance. Having already had the pleasure of photographing two of the family members for violin portraits, I knew a family portrait session would be a blast.

Morning at the Beach

When I arrived at the location near the Silver Cloud Inn in Mukilteo, the family was ready to get started. The young lady’s bright, genuine smile and sparkling eyes caught my attention immediately. I knew the family would want a group portrait, but this beauty had to be captured individually, too!

Look at those eyes and that gorgeous naturally wavy hair!

I also shared the youngest boy’s enthusiasm for his passions (trains, ferries, and Doctor Who, of course!). The 11th Doctor is totally the best one, duh.

I too love the 11th Doctor, my friend. Remember, Fezzes are cool!

Capturing the Elusive Teen Boy

The oldest boy is teetering on the cusp of manhood and was less likely to goof around for my lens, but some really bad puns and a little horseplay on the Mukilteo beach with his siblings softened his cool-guy exterior.

What, no Lighthouse?!?

But where, you may ask, is the famous Mukilteo Lighthouse?  Not in any of these photos!  The family wanted to focus on their many happy memories in this popular diving location, and so we eschewed tradition and captured some of Mukilteo’s lesser-known shores.

What Destination Inspires You?

What do you think about our Mukilteo family portraits?  Are you loving my vintage postcard look?  What dream locations would you book for your session?  The beach?  The mountains? Your backyard? Your living room? I’m thinking my vote might go to the French countryside, but that’s mostly an excuse to go to France ha ha.  In the meantime, I’ll gladly haunt the beaches of Mukilteo, the living rooms of my clients, and the Starbucks of Mill Creek (yes, you can find me there).

B Family Sneak Peeks

B Family Sneak Peeks

Last week I had the privilege to spend the day with the B family, who has just welcomed sweet Emerson.  Emerson’s whole family was clearly head-over-heels in love with their newest member, and the warmth they feel for each other came through beautifully in their portraits.  It was hard choosing just three images from their session – Emerson was such a dreamy client that I couldn’t stop photographing him! – but here is just a taste of how our day went.
