The fall is great for me because my wedding season starts winding down and I'm able to slow things down just a little bit and spend some time with families that I LOVE. Check out Ashley and David (gorgeous humans as it is) and then they went and created two more beautiful humans and I'm just over here loving every ounce of it! It had been 2 years since I had seen this crew. We did family photos 2 years ago when their older daughter, Kennedy, was barely walking. When I showed up to their house for photos this time, she came running down the stairs with multiple bow options and full of opinions on which color should she wear. My jaw about hit the floor with how much she had grown in just 2 years. That is the exact reason why I think family photos are so important, and so special. Getting to document little Kennedy's story now is special to me, and as this family grows getting to help them capture these moments is so special. We walked around a nearby park in Seattle, Kennedy asked to see the back of my camera almost every photo and it was adorable. I left them feeling so much joy and happiness. Thank you again, Cahill family, for letting continue to document you guys!
For Carli + Lance's engagement session we headed out to Rattlesnake Lake to soak up some of the first sun of spring. Literally, this was in March and we hadn't seen sun like this in about 4 months. We had set this shoot up well before knowing the weather was going to look like this, we even moved it one day back because the day before it poured. Typical PNW weather. We spent the afternoon walking around the lake, chatting about their relationship and wedding plans, I tried to convince them to get a dog for their wedding, and overall just spent a few hours laughing and walking. Carli and Lance are getting married October 14th, I can't WAIT for their wedding day! Thanks to them for being such gorgeous humans and letting me capture this amazing chapter of their lives!
I snuck off one evening to the state fair with these two cute humans. Meet Dylan and Jordynn. Jordynn is a hair and make up artist and always a dream to work with, Dylan is a stylish bartender who lights drinks on fire- together they're a pretty rad pair. We hung out at the fair together, rode some rides, watched crazy carnies, played some games, and ate some corndogs, kept things pretty casual- a super fun night out in our hometown here! It's all fun and games until someone eats the outside of the corndog off.
