I had a total WTF moment while photographing the Wallace Family Portraits -- also known as... "Why The Fowl" Or if you have had enough of looking for Pokemon -- a "What the Duck?" moment? No matter what you call it -- here's what I'm getting at -- if you look closely in several of the Wallace Family Portraits you are going to see one very friendly female duck that aggressively kept photo bombing their portrait session (hint bottom left of the 1st family portrait and direct center of the parents directly above this text)

Mom Joyce had shared with me that it had been way too long since the group of four had family pictures so I'm hoping that she is happy with her newly adopted fowl that will make up the 5th member of her family. (ha!)

Once a year American Express reminds all of us to "shop local" and remember small business right? Well I wanted to give another great example of how some people are doing this all year round.  Dr. Susan Chen owns Pine Lake Family Dentistry up on the Sammamish Plateau.  She wanted to thank her favorite patients for supporting her business and incorporate these real families into her practice.    Dr. Chen gifted a family experience at Studio B Portraits to patients and one of those special families is the Vaughan's.  They are SO incredibly awesome.  I swear I didn't stop smiling the entire photo shoot.  The thing that was SO cool about the Vaughans is what they said after the shoot -- they were so incredibly appreciative for the "time together as a family" -- Mom Aimee shared that as the kids have grown and life has gotten more spread out, it's become challenging to bring everyone together and this was such a "wonderful family experience"  (That totally made my day btw.)

You'll also be seeing this lovely family on the Pine Lake Family Dentistry website soon -- but in the mean time...you will not want to miss our super awesome behind the scenes video that we posted on our Facebook  (the music is a little George Jefferson meets Bruno Mars don't you think?)
