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!


A new location I wandered around last night. It was absolutely gorgeous!

P.S. I'm testing out posting from my phone so I can keep up with August Break!




More Sisters!

I got a little waylaid by my computer virus, but I'm back on track now, chugging through sessions!

There's nothing better than a session that makes you laugh out loud while editing. This is one of my favorites:

These sisters are so full of happiness. Remember what happened here?  Can't wait to show you more!

P.S. If you missed out on Alexandra's headshots, take a peek! It's worth the click. :O)


August Break

Okay! I'm back! I spent the last week recovering from a cold and then (not to be outdone) my computer decided it, too, wanted a virus. So now we are both on the mend, though I am going through the long process of reinstalling everything just the way I had it on my computer. But, in a way it's nice to start fresh!

So, to get back into the groove, I'll be participating in August Break here on this blog. I seem to remember how easy and satisfying it was last year, and how happy it made everyone who tuned in!

So there you have it. Kick back, have a latte with us, and enjoy the August Break.

P.S. I think next week I'll participate in the 2011 A Week in the Life with Ali Edwards. I'm no scrapbooker, but I love looking back on what seemed so normal last year, and this is great motivation.

Anyone care to join? The big one was this week, but I've got no problems starting late. Maybe I'll even catch up on my 2010 Week in the Life which never made it to print.... So let me know if you're participating!


Baby blue eyes

Tonight I'm finishing the rest of this session but I can't get this smiling face out of my mind.

More to come....


The sweetest thing

While planning my East Coast trip, I timed it around my dear friend Meg's due date. I was staying three hours from her, and spent half the time nervous that I wouldn't make it in time when her labor started. It was so important to me that I be there for her. Indeed, I made it with plenty of time to spare and was there to witness her intense and beautiful labor.

Of the whole day, this has to be my favorite image. It's victory, peace, happiness, relief, and love all rolled up into one little moment.

I'm so glad I could be there for Lily's first moments on earth. Thank you so much, Meg.


Without further ado,

Meet Alexandra!

I have been BURSTING at the seams waiting to share images from this session. We were in a bit of a time crunch, as I had an hour to do her headshots AND a family shoot with her three sisters before they were off to perform at a wedding out of town.

I will say it is an absolute understatement that I could have followed these ladies around all day long and not had enough. They are a talented, fun-loving bunch, and Alexandra is no exception. She has all the grace of a dancer and a sparkling personality. I cannot wait to see her dreams come true!

Alexandra, working with you was amazing! You rocked our little headshot session, and I can't wait to show you the rest. Enjoy!

P.S. Don't forget to find me on Facebook between posts. You get juicy little tidbits like the surprise ending to this session!


We're Back!

We dove head first into our vacation and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Now we're home and it's time to get things back in order. I can't wait to edit and share all the pictures. Sessions, family fun, and a beautiful birth!

The best part about editing is getting to relive the wonderful moments. Stay tuned!
