Welcome! I'm Shawna, an on-location natural light photographer from Kent, WA serving the greater Seattle and South Sound area. My passion is for birth photography! In birth or family sessions, I strive to capture details and the spontaneous moments that truly reflect the beauty in your life, and that you will treasure for ever. Sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy my musings, or better yet - pop me an email and introduce yourself. I love meeting new people!

Picturing Spring

During the month of April, I'm taking part in the Picture Spring celebration over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. After completing last year's Project 365, it's great to have smaller daily prompts to keep the photo mojo flowing. If you're not familiar with Tracey Clark, definitely go check her out - she's full of inspiration and is one of the masterminds at Shutter Sisters.

Without further ado, the first five days of April:

day 1 - beginnings

day 2 - good morning 1

day 3 - steps

Day 4 - looking up

Day 5 - grounded


a very happy day

Just popping in to wish my beautiful baby girl a happy birthday.

I'm so very very excited. I hope this year she understands a bit the significance of the day. The candles are hers to blow out, the singing is hers to enjoy, and the company is there just for her.

All because the world is a better place with her in it. I am a better person because of her.

It makes me teary and grinny all at once to think just how much she lights up my life, and I cannot wait to celebrate it this year.

Two years ago I woke up at 3am to a tiny splish of water, I pushed all afternoon (through the wind hail and snow, much like today's weather) and late into the evening and within twenty four hours we were at home snuggled up in our bed, a new family, right where we ought to be.

Best day ever. And now it's time to celebrate it.

This picture is just everything I love about my daughter.

That amazing independence and concentration.

Those soft features - so much girl these days and so little baby.

So beautiful that I have trouble taking my eyes off her at times.

Oh how I love her.


Princess for a day

Last week I met a princess in the making. As the youngest in the family, and the only girl, Faith is living it up - pink style!

Sometimes the most amazing light is found in the strangest rooms, but this little girl had some right in her own nursery. It was the cutest room ever, and was a perfect fit for her bubbly personality.

For her beautiful birthday dress, I had planned photos on the couch, but Faith wanted nothing to do with it! She was perfectly content to stay with mama the whole time - or show off her speedy crawling skills. Just fine with me - we'll get that couch shot some day. :O)

Faith's birthday is in just a few weeks and I have a feeling she's going to have the most wonderful princess party ever. Can't wait to hear all about it!
