Lillian Newborn Album Layout

I love creating layouts of possible albums for clients.  It is such a great way to see their images in a finished product that they can buy for themselves or send to family members. In the case of a newborn, I would definitely send a book to the grandparents (or allow them the option to buy one for themselves). Next to canvases, these are my 2nd favorite tangible product that I market.

Dual Birthday Shoots

Two of my high school friends brought over their moms and kids yesterday to take some photos for their kids' birthdays. We knew it was going to be rainy, so we decided on an indoor shoot, but caught a break in the sun so we ran outside real quick and got a couple outdoors as well!

My daughter had to hop in one - of course!

Mom asked for this photo!!!!!  bwa-hahaha!

Lowe Maternity Shoot

My dear friend, Jessica, is ready to have her baby boy any day now!  I'm so excited for her :)  I used to coach cheer with her and worked at our former school together. She is outdoorsy and loves to hike, camp, and do anything that keeps her active and fit.  We had to climb one hill during our shoot today and I was more out of breath than she was!!!

She had the best attitude possible about our rainy day photo shoot today.  She is 38 weeks pregnant, so we knew we had to get it done as soon as possible, otherwise her little guy might get here before we did!  So good to see her today and so glad we got it done!!

She was pointing to the spot where he kicks all the time :)
This is what my kiddos were doing during the shoot! LOL :)

Seahawks Win!!!!

Those of you that know me, know that my family is a HUGE Seahawks Fan-Base.  (Editor's Note - I made one error in the video at the bottom - we have had season tickets since 2001, not 2003).  We feel the closest when we are watching a game, whether at home or in person. We love traveling up and going to Costco for our pre-game lunch, going into Touchdown City, screaming our head off at Century Link, and being known as the loudest fans in Football (Go 12th man!!!!)

You can tell by my posts on Facebook every week and the way I sneak footballs into photo shoots and Seahawks into whatever I can!  Every week is our Superbowl and every Superbowl, we wear Seahawks jerseys no matter what.  Well, this was our year!!!!  We could feel it in pre-season.  We let all the people that said that we peaked too early go in one ear and out the other.  We knew it deep down.  Here are some highlights from yesterday!
