I have a few lenses that I am constantly drooling over. However, I don't have a ton of cash to just drop on said lenses. Which is why it would be absolutely amazing to win this Nikon 85mm 1.4 lens from Crave Photography.

Seriously, I LOVE family shoots. I get to be surrounded by love and watch them interact with each other. And let's just be honest - I always get to shoot beautiful families.
Lisa and her boys are no exception! It was absolutely freezing when we got together at Bothell Landing, but these three were troopers - Calvin even ran around in between shots to keep himself toasty. Thanks for braving the cold, and I hope the hot chocolates afterwards were just what you needed to warm up :)
The Ellermeiers are taking over Holson Photography! I was able to shoot my good friend Anna & Chad Ellermeier last June, and just a couple of weeks ago, I got to shoot Todd & Tricia and their handsome boy. So I have shot the East Coast Ellermeiers (Anna & Chad), and the West Coast Ellermeiers (Todd & Tricia). Now, I just need to get the Midwest Ellermeiers (Stacia and her fam. BTW, Stacia does AMAZING custom printing. Check her out at Print Girl Ink)
Anyway, I was on maternity leave since having my sweet boy, Hendrix (more to come on him later), when Tricia asked if she could get in a quick family shoot. To be completely honest, I was going stir crazy and really missed shooting. So I immediately said yes! I loved every second that we had together - this family is so much fun :)

I'd like to introduce you to two beautiful people: Brady & Carlee. Or, as I like to call them - BB and Double E. I first met Carlee when she was a wee lass, but we because friends when we were both in youth choir together. In those days, there were a boatload of Carley/Carlye/Carlie/Karly/Carlees in my life. I had to figure out a way to differentiate between all of them. Thus, Double E was born.
Carlee is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet, with a voice that will blow you away. Brady is a Montana boy, and the oldest of eight children (and there's only one girl in there). They met in college, in their orientation group (awwww!!!). When you are around Brady & Carlee, you can't help but feel the love, and fall more in love with your significant other.
Jeremy and I will be shooting BB & Double E's wedding in May 2012, and we'll be doing a full Engagement shoot later this winter/early spring. Keep your eyes open for their future sessions!

Lindsey was one of my youth leaders when I was in junior high and high school. Lindsey has been such an influence in my life for 15+ years! We've been on many choir tours and Fine Arts Festival trips together, more Javanilla Shakes than I can count, and lots of great memories.
At Dave & Lindsey's wedding, I had the privilege of setting up a photo booth and having some fun with their guests! If you want to see some more pictures, check out my Facebook page.
Oh Lindsey Lemmonhead Moll. I love you dearly. I am SO happy for you and Dave!

Get ready for cuteness overload! Jason and Erika have three of the cutest boys in the entire world. I mean, it's kind of not fair how adorable these boys are. But when mom and dad are as beautiful as they are, how could they have anything but gorgeous children?
Jeremy and I had so much fun with you two and your boys. And Erika, I'm sure I'll be hitting you up for advice on raising boys!

I met the Fredricksons through the Bothell High School auction. I was definitely looking forward to shooting this family, especially after Kerri (mom) told me that there would be four generations there! Her grandpa, her parents, Todd's parents, Todd & Kerri and their babes (who are in college and high school. You know, when my baby is in college, I'll still call him my baby. And it will probably embarrass him. It's my right as a mommy though, right?).
I had such a great time with the entire Fredrickson family! Seeing four generations all together is such an amazing testament to the love that they all share. Thanks for meeting up with me!

Every year, I donate at least one session to local schools for their auction. I'm always excited to meet the recipient, and we always manage to have a great time with our shoot. Jake is a senior at Cedar Park Christian, and is involved in just about everything - basketball, drama, ASB, etc. The day we got together was toasty and super humid, but Jake was a rock star - even in those sweaters! Enjoy your senior year, Jake. I hope it's amazing!
