Dream Family Portraits | the Wadlows

I'm pretty sure this sweet family makes our dreams come true every holiday season  Talk about people who are simply radiant with joy and love for each other!  We have had the pleasure of photographing the Wadlows for the past 8 years, and every year they out do themselves!


Could they be any more charming?!  The Wadlows truly make formal family portraits look effortless.  And we love the gold and black details of their wardrobe!

Beautiful Holiday Childrens Portraits | Issaquah Portrait Studio near Bellevue WA

Loved photographing these sweet sisters in their beautiful Christmas dresses (gotta love children's clothing store Janie and Jack...they have the most adorable ensembles for the babes) I absolutely knew that we'd all be glitter-rific after introducing these over-sized ornaments (silver flecks EVERYWHERE)  but what's holiday spirit without a little bling?   It took about 4.2 seconds for our young 7 month baby Julia's mouth to meet this snowflake...she did it twice, so maybe it didn't taste all that bad :-)  And big sister Alexa had two different dresses...the red she told me had better "twirl" than the green.  We added another favorite from their portrait session on our website here for your viewing pleasure too. Bring on the holidays!  And speaking of holidays....don't forget get our all-inclusive K.I.S.S (Keep It Studio Special) portrait session. Details here.

Best Family Pictures | Breakfast at Tiffany's Theme | Studio B Portraits

First -- I've got a kindred spirit in Mom Lisa who enjoys an awesome theme as much as I do :-)  Several weeks ago, she sent me a Audrey Hepburn-esque,"Breakfast at Tiffany's" inspiration photo that she thought would make a great photo shoot (gotta love Pinterest).  Of course I totally agreed and we both set about planning for a fabulous on-location shoot. (She made these gorgeous dresses for her girls by the way) Back to the story...On the day of the family's portrait session...enter Seattle heavy rain showers (cue the wah, wah buzzer)  NO Outside, BUT...No Worries -- Plan B...Luckily, we have our gorgeous new 2012 holiday sets at the studio. So in walks the family looking as fabulous as can be but just in case you think that everything else went as planned -- nope....I had to laugh when Mom tells me that her youngest (and might I mention spunky) daughter who had just left the hair salon promptly pulled out her up-do within minutes of exiting the premises because she didn't like her Princess Bun. ;-)  Clearly none of it mattered -- this shoot was fantastic and I could paper my portfolio in favorites from this photo shoot -- what a ball! Oh and if you're curious to see the family's previous shoots here's a link to both the newborn portrait session and outdoor family portrait session.
