Golden Gardens Family Photos

Apr

13

Seven years as a Seattle area wedding and portrait photographer and I can’t believe this was my first time ever at Golden Gardens! I recognized areas from other photographers photos but this was my first time shooting here. Then, I found out less than two weeks later that I will be photographing a wedding at Golden Gardens at the end of the month. From “never shot here” to two back to back, I am excited to add this location to places I’m familiar with.

I love photographing new milestones for previous wedding clients. Maddie & John had the most beautiful forest mountain wedding at Wellspring Spa in Ashford, Wa. You can view their wedding blog post HERE!

It was probably the first absolutely gorgeous day of Spring 2022. We were so lucky to catch it! Maddie’s parents came along to help with baby J and get some grandparent portraits as well. Sweet baby J did so well! She slept for half the session allowing for a great variety of open and closed eye baby photos.

Maddie had brought some adorable little baby booties that we had a hard time keeping on her. A note to new parents and non-walking littles: it’s really hard to keep shoes on them at all my sessions! I’m happy we were able to get some photos in with the booties on, too! They’re just so darn cute even if not functional.

Welcome to the world baby girl and congratulations to Maddie and John! I loved watching them work together and each taking turns with photos. It’s clear Maddie, Joh, and Maddie’s parents are absolutely smitten.

Parenthood looks beautiful on you! Thank you for inviting me to document such a beautiful new chapter!

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
