Des Moines Family Photos

Jun

25

They’re back!!! I was so excited when Sarah & Drew contacted me to take their Des Moines family photos in the same location we had documented their engagement photos years prior. View their engagement session HERE! Saltwater State Park is such a fun one to work at. We really have to watch that tide or there is NO beach though. Have had that happen a couple times.

They now have the cutest little kiddos and they are exactly how I would have imagined Sarah & Drew’s children to be. Little adventurers! Their daughter wanted to climb climb climb everything she saw like her hiking Mom and Dad. I am confident she has many fun family hikes and climbs in her future!

It was fun to see the kiddos warm up to having their photos taken. So shy at first and giggling away like I’m not even there by the end. I love seeing that transition during family photos within an hour! It’s so fun and surprisingly reliable.

I love photographing families with little kids because the window of tolerance for the activity sets a timer that keeps us productive and focused and finishing in a very comfortable amount of time. I love engagement sessions, too, but when I have a couple who is SLAYING in front of the camera, it is easy to get caught up longer than intended. Little ones let us know when they are DONE. These two did SO WELL, though!

Thank you so much for reaching out, Sarah and Drew. It’s always a pleasure working with you and I hope to see you all again on another visit, soon! Congratulations on your BEAUTIFUL family!

Emily & Joe’s Seattle Ballroom Proposal was not an easy one to organize but worth EVERY effort. Oh, boy, did Joe give this his everything. Originally, We had planned on a hot air balloon proposal. He was going to propose as the balloon was inflated before they took off. However, the Seattle weather was not […]
