Emily + Matthew // Woodland Park Zoo // Seattle, WA

What a fun morning celebrating Emily and Matthew’s first date-a-versary! They had their first date at the zoo exactly one year ago and I could see why they were a perfect match! With their playful, silly affection towards each other and their shared passion for animals, it was a blast exploring the zoo with them. Matthew is in the Navy stationed out of Bremerton while Emily is in school working towards her dream job to work at a zoo. A few days after this shot, I got a text saying they got engaged!! How amazing! Congratulations once again to this adorable couple!

Vanneman Family // Washington Park Arboretum // Seattle, WA

We set out in the less than freezing tempertaures at the Washington Park Arboretum {thank goodness it wasn’t raining!} to capture these adorable photos! We had fun playing in the newly fallen leaves as we crunched our way through the frozen paths. This little lady is gearing up to be a big sister this March and I can’t wait to see the newest addition! It’s always fun working with such a fun, loving, and sweet family!

Sardal Family // Redmond, WA

Braving the rain is one thing that is usually a constant living in Washington. I was happy to capture this cute family as we did just that. We had such a great afternoon exploring their new neighborhood! Total troopers with a charming daughter to boot, she had me smiling throughout the session with her darling poses and infectious laughter!

I had such a fun morning exploring the Seattle waterfront and Pike Place Market with this fabulous family!  Recently relocated to Washington from the east coast, it was fun capturing the fun brother/sister bond while they experienced this area for the first time.  I lucked out with this adorable family!
