I ate up every bit of this session. I would have had to drive a long, long way to find a location like this while I was living in California. In California I would have also been hard-pressed to find a family which such awesome northwest style. Jami and her family were so, so much fun to photograph!
It was a chilly December afternoon when I met these great people for their family photos. Just like my husband and I, they had recently moved to Seattle because of a job at Amazon. It seems that everyone we meet in Seattle is here either working for Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Boeing, or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation! While I'm not completely used to the Seattle "gloom", there is beauty here that you just don't find in Southern California. The leaves change color and the lush green landscape follows you wherever you go. It's really beautiful.
As some of you may know, I've spent the summer living in Seattle while my husband had an internship at Amazon. Well, the highlight has been getting to see my sister, niece, and nephew on nearly a daily basis. My niece is a little over 2 years old and my nephew is 3 months old. Over lunch today my sister and I were talking about how amazing it is to be an aunt. Before this summer, I had only seen my niece a handful of times. I loved her, but I didn't really "know" her. Now that I've spent countless hours with both my niece and my sweet baby nephew, something special has happened. I feel a kind of love for them that I can't possibly describe. Well, before the summer ends we knew that we had to get a family session in for my sister. We went to a field behind their house and spend just 30 minutes. You know, we didn't want to wear out Tim (my brother in law) haha. The kids were perfect angels! Kaydriana is a doll, always full of personality and smiles. Oh, and those cheeks! Lake is quite possibly the most mild mannered baby I have ever known. My heart explodes when he smiles and coos - his new favorite tricks!
I love you sis, and I hope you guys like the photos!
