Every family has a story to tell in the everyday activities.  Its such a delight to explore a bedroom, take a walk and share a meal with one of my favorites.

When one of your very best friends is this gorgeous two weeks before her due date you most definitely need to make sure there are photos to document.  I mean seriously.  I cannot wait to cuddle this little girl and watch parenthood envelop these two.  But for now, enjoy the sweet anticipation of the giant unknown that is the weeks before your first born comes into the world.  I’ve got my pack and play all ready for lovely baby naps when they visit.    KCB photography_0590 KCB photography_0592 KCB photography_0593 KCB photography_0579 KCB photography_0575 KCB photography_0577 KCB photography_0576KCB photography_0578KCB photography_0580 KCB photography_0581 KCB photography_0582 KCB photography_0583 KCB photography_0584 KCB photography_0585 KCB photography_0586 KCB photography_0587 KCB photography_0588 KCB photography_0589 KCB photography_0591 KCB photography_0594

Things are definitely starting off on the right foot when you begin your shoot at Roy Street Coffee & Tea.  We enjoyed some shared coffee and chatted about the wedding planning before diving into documenting their engagement.  It is the couples that really delight in one another’s company that make it so very easy.  These two come here often and play cards or just relax together and I felt like I was just observing an {extra}ordinary date on a Tuesday afternoon.  Greenlake was the next obvious location since the actual proposal happened on a stroll around the lake.  It was such a lovely way to spend a day and to make it just that much more special it happened to be Dominique’s birthday.  Who doesn’t want their birthday documented for a few hours as you just enjoy the day and someone special to spend it with? KCB photography_0541 KCB photography_0542

It’s hard to not fall a little in love with these faces.  I mean there is something so endearing about those rolls of furry flat cuteness so devoted to their people.  What a delightful and truly enjoyable PNW day at the beach with this two cuties and their humans.  Looking forward to their wedding this June!KCB photography_0507 KCB photography_0508 KCB photography_0509 KCB photography_0510 KCB photography_0511 KCB photography_0512 KCB photography_0513 KCB photography_0514 KCB photography_0517 KCB photography_0516 KCB photography_0518 KCB photography_0520 KCB photography_0521 KCB photography_0522 KCB photography_0523 KCB photography_0524 KCB photography_0525 KCB photography_0526 KCB photography_0533 KCB photography_0527 KCB photography_0528 KCB photography_0529 KCB photography_0531 KCB photography_0530 KCB photography_0532 KCB photography_0534 KCB photography_0535 KCB photography_0536

These two.  After being incredibly gracious rescheduling when I had to stay home with a sick kiddo, racing the rain clouds during our session and then surprising me with a very thoughtful session gift I really just wanted to give them huge hugs and add them to my Christmas card list.  That’s normal right?  Let me tell you, it was a whole lot colder than Emily made it look, but I’m thinking she had some help keeping warm.  They just made it the whole session seem so effortless.

Every time I meet a new family I am drawn to the dynamics.  The relationships that play out in natural interaction.  It was such a pleasure to meet, photograph and just enjoy time with the Gebrils.  The grass was tall and scratchy in the field we traipsed through, we were bumping up against nap time and yet the beauty of their family is evident in every frame.  My absolute favorites are the frames in between.  The photos when the love and caring just flows out seamlessly and I am just delighted to be near enough to capture.

Kierston + Eric

I cannot believe I’ve lived in Washington my entire life and had never visited Mount Rainier National Park.  A serious oversight on my part for sure.  Now I only wish it was closer so I could go every week.  We enjoyed beautiful but chilly weather for our shoot in July and the mountain didn’t actually make an appearance until two hours after our shoot but I still consider the day a complete success.  Amazing beauty is in abundance around every bend and it’s hard to not just sit in awe and soak it all in.

My favorite part of engagement shoots?  Spending the day with two fabulous people with nothing to do but explore, have fun, get to watch love in action and take beautiful photos!  This day at Discovery Park & the Ballard Farmer’s Market with Nate & Kendall  was an absolute success.  I cannot wait for their wedding this summer.  I know it is going to be grand.

Eric & Jenna’s wedding was an international affair.  Guests traveled from London, Australia, Kenya just to name a few, to a little paradise escape in Yakima.  Cascade Gardens is a hidden gem sequestered across from the largest hops farm in Washington.  It truly felt like a meet up of long lost friends.  The atmosphere was joyous, celebratory and so very welcoming.  A sweet love affair for everyone to enjoy.

I know I’ve said this before but there is something so incredibly special about spending time in a beautiful location with a couple in love and getting to photograph it all.  Seriously, it is so much my favorite.  You can’t look through this shoot and tell me you’re not a little jealous of our sunny day at the river and secretly wish you were there with us.
