Ah sharing my brother and his girlfriend today because I love them beyond words! They've been together for what seems like forever and other than being crazy about each other they are beyond in love with their dogs. We got together over the holidays for some photos together and it was only fitting we went to our favorite dog park with the pups! This time of year is all about family, good friends, and just spending times together doing what you love (and getting outside whenever you can!) Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend with your friends and family!
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!
