Near and dear to my heart

Best Blogger Tips
Pin It The family session....not just any family session, but my own!
My daughter, son in law, and of course the grandson! ♥


I called Mandy in the morning as I was making an unexpected garage sale stop. Saw some cute baby things there, and was checking to see if she wanted me to pick up a few things. I was going to get a light weight umbrella stroller, but instead found some fantastic baby clothes, most still with the tags on.....my favorite kind of find!
What a bargin, who doesn't love that? Can't wait to see little Bennett in some of those outfits!
(I'm always on the lookout for cool props at garage sales too)

Anyway, I get a call back a few minutes later with the question "do you think we could do our family session later today"? Heck YES!!! Quick change of plans, and a few hours later we meet up to do the shoot. Not the most perfect timing for Bennett, as it appears he has taken to napping every 2 hours...go figure! So we'd better be quick!
First stop is at the Pickering Barn in Issaquah....wouldn't you know it there was a wedding being held there, so we stayed out of the way and just did some in the grassy areas. I would have loved to use the barn in some of the shots, but we didn't want to crash the wedding:) But the light was beautiful anyway!

About this time, Bennett is hungry...so we stop for him to have a bottle. Then on to our next location. Perfect time to let the baby have a nap in the stroller while we get some couples shots. Some of my all time faves!! Don't they make a beautiful couple?? (Maybe I'm just biased...lol)

I'm SO glad we had this day to do this Mandy and Philip....I hope you like your photos, I know I do!!
