 When was the last time you indulged in letting yourself feel absolutely cared for and beautiful in every way? Whenever I ask this question of Mom - trust me… I already know the answer. It was so fun to see Mom Jennifer have our hair + make-up pros doll her up.

 As a Mom, we always wish our girl could see herself the way the rest of the world sees her right?

Celebrating Mommy & Me

"You are exactly like your Momma!" Ask me how many times I've heard that over the course of my life, and I will tell you that it is a compliment every single time.  Maybe that's why celebrating this bond is one of my favorite relationships to work with here at Studio B.

If you're looking to say "I love you" to your mom or daughter, bring them to the studio and let us give you both a moment to look glam together!  Such a perfect Mother's Day, birthday, or "just because" gift!

Pro Tip: While your babes are young (and not as likely to protest;), have fun matching your outfits the way Mikaela styled herself and Avery when they came to the Studio for their most recent session!

We can’t get enough of cutei pie Avery and her beautiful mama, Mikaela! Celebrating Avery’s 2nd birthday was their excuse to have a fun moment in front of the camera…check out the behind the scenes in the video above!

How to get Picture Perfect Family Portrait Style

Wondering how to get Picture Perfect Family Portrait Style with a modern twist?  We really need not look any further than the Avalos Family.

 This beautiful color combination is equally gorgeous in Summer and Spring.

This beautiful color combination is equally gorgeous in Summer and Spring.

The family started by showcasing each person's unique sense of style in their wardrobe selection. No matchy-matchy here but by keeping the color themes anchored with neutral blues and charcoal they were able to incorporate pops of color & pattern to keep it as playful as the familiy themselves.

A little beach, a little splash and a little dance has us all kinds of happy just looking at them! And for anyone wondering about the smokey skies of Summer (clearly they photograph beautifully)... same goes for Seattle overcast days (soft, gorgeous light that flatters every skin type and tone)

Beautiful Beach Family Portraits + Summer in Sammamish go hand in hand

Beautiful Beach Family Portraits + Summer in Sammamish go hand in hand... and apparently so do the gorgeous Snyder Family when they shoot with me (heehee). I love this moment of them coming up the sand (and yes I am well aware that nobody does this in real life but this family of four is so beyond gracious that they indulged my every crazy request)

Best family photographer is Studio B Portraits_Bellevue family on beach walking and lauging.jpg

The hazy days have made for epic-ally pretty backdrops this week on the Eastside and Mom Michelle decided that the WHOLE family - puppies and all - needed to be part of the mix. (I love when fur babies are as photogenic as their real kids.)  Fun fact: These pups were rescues and Michelle volunteers at the Humane Society. If you are interested in adopting a new dog or cat for your family be sure to visit the Seattle Humane Society on Facebook for details.

 I have said it for years but the family that plays together, stays together and the Snyder family is growing up fast but it's clear that they are closer than ever.  I photographed each of the kids  senior pictures  sessions but this was my first time getting the entire foursome in front of my lens. This picture of Mom and Dad having a little silly moment is SO fun for me. Isn't it awesome that he is still cracking her up after all these years???  Photo Credit StudioBportraits.com

The Family Experience is quickly becoming one of my favorite types of shoots.  Seeing families come together for an hour to laugh, play, connect -- it's literally everything that's important in life and I feel blessed to create these "forever" memories with our clients. Thank you to the Snyders for such a lovely afternoon.

This is Twelve | 7th Grade has never had this much sparkle

This is Twelve and 7th Grade has never had this much sparkle. Every year since they began school, I have photographed my kiddos for their school lunchbox (welcome to having a photographer for a parent) I love these one on one moments with my babes.  We have a chance to talk, plan and play in anticipation of creating something together. The older they get, the more I cherish these moments.

 This year my daughter Ryann and I were inspired to do something a bit whimsical for her school lunch box. Inspired by her love of My Little Pony and anything that shines as bright as she does - this is what we came up with.

This is ONE | Celebrating Your Baby's First Birthday with a Family Portrait

Oh how time flies!  Wasn't it just yesterday that we were photographing Ciara's maternity session in anticipation of sweet Cedar's arrival?!  Now this darling boy is one year old and ready to take the world by storm. 

 Anytime we get to spend with the Paulus family is a treat!  Our camera loves them almost as much as we do!  Always looking like they stepped right out of a magazine *a million heart eyes here*

This is 14 | Everything beautiful about photographing Middle School

I have specialized in photographing teenagers for over a dozen years (even writing that sentence down here blows my mind, by the way) but as the time has gone by, there is a special joy that has grown for me in capturing the Middle School years.  I recently shared portraits of my own daughter earlier this month and now I had the great fortune to photograph 14 year old Sydney.

This tiny window of time that bridges childhood to adulthood is absolutely beautiful photographically and it's always fun to collaborate with both the kids and parents to create portraits that can reflect equal parts strength, vulnerability, joy and thoughtfulness.

 This blue lace dress from  Nordstrom is  one of 14 year old Sydney's favorites from her session and hearing Mom say that they had a ball shopping together and getting ready for the session was a cherry on top of this sweet experience.

Why I love photographing Middle School children...

Every year the tree in my backyard blooms beautifully for about 4 point 2 seconds (apologies for the sarcasm... it just seems that the gorgeous Spring flowers are just so fleeting) Coincidentally, this year that was about how long my 14 year old daughter gave me to play pictures with her before she cut me off.  (heehee) Let me explain...

Impromptu photo shoots are nothing new for my kiddos (welcome to having a photographer Mom) but as my daughter became a teenager, I felt this overwhelming need to create a visual reminder for her. Of what you might ask? Of her big, wild curls, her joy, and the things that make her uniquely special.  Maybe more simply, I really just needed an  unflinching counter balance to Middle School culture. (And according to my daughter, I needed to get it done before basketball practice!)

I am often struck by how often young girls... and full grown women, do not see their beauty in the way that the rest of us do.  By far, my greatest blessing is in creating portraits that positively speak louder to our spirit than any whisper of doubt ever could.

We first met Bellevue High School senior Annika and the lovely Strandell Family (pictured above) this past summer for high school senior portraits and it's clear that lovely runs in the family.
