Urban chic

While in Seattle, my sister-in-law and I did a photo shoot downtown by the mall, and in historic Pioneer Square. It was cloudy and overcast, which made for perfect lighting. The pictures turned out incredibly well, and I couldn't be happier. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot. (No, she's not a professional model, but she should be!)

Nick and Rachael

I'm in Seattle right now visiting my brother and his family, and I got set up with their friends for a photo shoot. This couple was absolutely perfect. They interacted so naturally and we got some stunning shots. It had been raining all day (all week, actually) and we just prayed and prayed it would stop for the shoot. It quit raining about ten minutes before the shoot, and started up again ten minutes after the shoot. It was a miracle! The lighting was gorgeous, and the locale (Robinswood Park in Bellevue) was perfect. Here is a preview of the many incredible shots of this adorable couple.

The Hurricane

This past weekend I got to photograph a little girl who is affectionately called "Hurricane Hadley" by her mother. The antics of this child have been profiled on Denver's Mile High Mamas, which her mother founded as a resource for parents in the Denver area. The site has a new article every day, lists of all the fun things going on in Denver, and forums where parents can connect with each other. The site will soon be featuring a giveaway of a free photo session and free 11x14 mounted and textured print from me! This should be coming some time in the next few days, so check the site often!

In the meantime, please enjoy these sweet pictures of this adorable girl, who was anything but a hurricane for the photo shoot. Much to her mother's delight.
