I recently got to spend time in Johnny’s world… the heart of where his creativity is encouraged & nurtured, and where nothing really matters except for the love of his mom, his dad & his gigi. Johnny’s mom (a lovely & talented local perfumier, you should check out her beautiful shop!) hired me specifically to capture moments of the two of them together, mainly because she said there are a gajillion photos of Johnny & his dad, and hardly any with her in them… and we were both inspired by this article by Allison Tate in the Huffington Post, that encourages all mom’s to honor their children with photos of them. The quote that stands out to me the most from this article is: “I’m everywhere in their young lives, and yet I have very few pictures of me with them. Someday I won’t be here — and I don’t know if that someday is tomorrow or thirty or forty or fifty years from now — but I want them to have pictures of me. I want them to see the way I looked at them, see how much I loved them. I am not perfect to look at and I am not perfect to love, but I am perfectly their mother.” This subject is near & dear to my heart for obvious reasons (I’m a photographer, duh!), but because I am a mom, and also I am a daughter who was lucky enough to have parents who took thousands & thousands of photos of all my siblings & me growing up… photos & memories that have shaped who I am today & what I have become. I am so thankful for that, and so very thankful that I have gift that I can share to do the same for other families as well as mine.

A huge & heartfelt thanks to Grey Likes Baby for featuring this special family session on their blog… Thank you! And to all of you… I’d love to document your family! Here in Seattle, and I travel too!
