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!

Not so strange(r)

I met Maggie two whole weeks ago and it's taken me this long to get her picture up! She's a friend of a friend - MJ (oh yes, of awesome Thomas fame!) is teaching her to knit. She has started coming to our knit group and I look forward to seeing her again. So far I have two strangers who are people I will see regularly. Kinda fun to expand your world in this way.

Anyhow, she is superb! When I walked into the yogurt shop where we meet to knit, I immediately hoped she was the stranger that MJ was pushing on me. Dressed in bright colors, just sort of emanating awesomeness.

The yogurt shop has a fantastic pink wall, and I hurried her over there to beat the fading light and increasing crowd. I realized that I rarely shoot one on one with people who are taller than me, so I had to really think about where to stand. Maggie did great for being rushed into pictures with a stranger. We should have chatted more first, but we got to that in the end. Did you know her kids have the same birthday on different years? How cool is that!
