Browning Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

We’ve known this couple since they were freshly engaged, excitedly planning their wedding day with an intimate group of family and friends in a garden in Queen Anne. Their ceremony ended with cheers just in time for some typical fall Seattle sprinkles as we dashed to the cars and headed for their reception.

After celebrating their one year anniversary the best gift they could receive arrived! His name is Winston (is that not the cutest name?!?) and he is already increasing their joy and love a million times over. Winston was way too interested in the camera and playing with mom and dad to do much sleeping, but we sufficiently tuckered him out by the end of our shoot and he passed out in one of the spots he loves the most, on dad’s chest.

Julie & Matt, congratulations! Winston is such a sweetheart and we love his vast amount of expressions. You two are already making great parents and we couldn’t be happier for you three! ~Erik & Marissa

Winston was not into sleeping during our session until the very end. It’s possible he wore us all out, haha, and everyone needed a nap! Loved sneaking in this shot.

So Thankful.

Every year this is our favorite time of year. Not only is fall just the best season full of colors (okay, we love to photograph during this season too!), smells (and as a pregnant woman I can tell you these smells are the best), and food, but we get to see so many people we love celebrating our favorite holidays from Halloween to NYE!

We also love reflecting this month, thinking of others and appreciating all life has given.

Marissa: This year I am most thankful for the people who make me feel loved. My rock, Erik, who truly makes me want to be a better person. My little love bug, Bryce (who has a million other names), who made me a mama and makes me smile during hard times and laugh constantly (toddlers are seriously so much fun). Our family, near and far, who love us unconditionally, even when I revert back and act like a teenager. Our friends, who aren’t required to love or even like us, but do anyway. And finally the little kicker in my belly who keeps me up at night excitedly awaiting his arrival.

Erik: The last couple of years seem to have been filled with unfortunate events around the world with mass killings and lives lost way too early. Each time this happens I can’t help but think how grateful I am to have everyone close to me safe. I’m appreciative to live comfortably, move, have food and love. As our family continues to grow I’m constantly speechless as to how thankful I am. I love you Marissa, Bryce, Erik Junior:)and all of our family and friends.

Bryce: (we can only assume, but…) Jumping on the couch. Flamingos. My mama & papa. Babies. Violins. Running to Caspar Babypants’ Run Baby Run. Music videos. Playdough. Bananas, yogurt, salami, and ice cream.

A look back at our favorite moments this fall (so thankful for them all):

Pumpkin patching with our little pumpkin.

A walk around the block a few weeks back turned into an impromptu photo session (poor Bryce with his photographer parents!).

We love Halloween, always have and likely always will. Hopefully our kids will continue letting us do family costumes!

Post wedding-season vacation to Kauai was everything we needed before baby #2 makes his arrival.

Our family session took place in the rain this year! More on that in a post coming soon. We had so much fun with our talented friend, Julianna J Photography!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! May you feel loved, joy and full (all the desserts please!) today. ~Erik & Marissa

Cara & Tommi | Pioneer Square Engagement

It was junior year of high school and Cara randomly got assigned to sit next to Tommi in English class (and thank goodness too!). They quickly became friends and decided to go to the Dave Matthews concert with Tommi’s parents. Although they didn’t consider it a date at the time, his parents definitely knew it was going to be their first date!

A few weeks later they did go on their first official date to their high school Homecoming! Now these two are gearing up to celebrate the next big step together and couldn’t be more perfectly matched to do so.

Cara & Tommi, thanks for being literally the most laid back couple about your engagement session! Through the rain and the cold you two knocked this one out of the park. So excited for your big day! ~Erik & Marissa

Jastrzebski Family | Discovery Park

The sweetest thing is seeing a baby loved by his parents so much! This little guy has got two wonderful ones, what a lucky dude.

As we planned the session and discussed the types of images we were hoping to get it did not occur to us that Seattle would throw us a curve ball and give us a super foggy morning! The best part was that this three-some rolled with it in such good spirits, laughing and playing together. Lucky for us the fog created such a cool look for once in a lifetime photos!

Jastrzebski family, thanks for being such troopers. We love all the love coming through in your super cool foggy session! ~Erik & Marissa

Lulu & Christian | Volunteer Park Engagement

They’d never met, but a mutual friend set them up so they figured why not? For their very first date they decided on a hike, something they now do together often. The thing about their first hike was, they were meeting for the first time and through all that excitement of getting to know someone new they took a wrong turn at some point, got lost and spent over 10 hours total hiking trails (oh, and with a near-mugging mixed in as well). Even with all that happening the two were obviously meant to be together because that date lead to another and another. They even spent 2 years dating long distance. Talk about putting your relationship to the test!

Lulu & Christian, we’re so happy to have met you both. Your smiles are simply contagious and it’s obvious how happy you make one another. So excited to be documenting this year for you! ~Erik & Marissa
