Showers Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

From newlyweds to a family of 4! Documenting this sweet family is one of the reasons we love our job. These two kind souls met, fell in love and are now growing their family with not one, but two gorgeous little girls.

Love that Dana & Josh are already experts at rolling with the punches, racing around with their toddler, cuddling their newborn and working as a team to give their girls loads of love.

Dana & Josh, thanks for letting us be part of your lives! The girls are too precious. ~Erik & Marissa

Shweta & Sid | Discovery Park Anniversary

Celebrating their anniversary on the beach in the city they’ve lived together for the longest (they were big movers just like us!). It was pure romance mixed in with some fun as we added their sweet pup for a few!

Shweta decided to wear a white dress and really go for a wedding look to recreate the feeling on their own wedding day. She said it was such a fun and hectic day they weren’t really able to enjoy the photos all those years ago so this was just for the two of them to relax, enjoy each other, play with their dog, dance in the sand, and get some shots that they could cherish before the next phase of their lives.

Also, we got so lucky with the biggest beach since the tide was out!

Hair & Makeup by the fabulous Kendra Springer of KLS Makeup Artistry.

Shweta & Sid congratulations on your anniversary and thank you for letting us be a part of it! ~Marissa & Erik

Hanover Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

Bringing your second baby home is so different than the first. There’s more love to go around, an older sibling to dote on baby, possibly a toddler to chase while feeding your newborn, and all the little balancing acts parents do to spread the love.

Kristine and Colby make it look effortless as they juggled their new life of parents to a toddler and brand new baby boy! Talk about a relaxed baby. As we chased and bribed and tickled his older sister Wit just slept, not making a peep our entire session, even when we passed him around to grandparents and sister, who all wanted a chance to hold him for photos.

Congrats Hanover Family! We are so happy for you and your growing family. ~Marissa & Erik

Ema & Zeeshan | Tacoma Union Station Wedding

Part 2 of Ema & Zeeshan’s wedding weekend was another fantastic day with two incredible people celebrating their love.

We love working with couples who can really just make each other happy and these two were absolutely giddy this weekend. Zeeshan knew just the right things to say for Ema to laugh so we certainly got a lot of happy images captured of them just being with each other, enjoying this day and sharing it with a lot of people they cherish.

All the little things came together to create such a perfect combo of these two! From the custom bookmarks to the hanging arch books that guests were invited to take home to read. The family style meal and library check-out styled guest book were another two of our favorites. Maddy, of Little Wedding Blush, helped bring their vision to life and it was nothing short of magical! Guests mingled, sipping tea and trying desserts while picking up a book and grabbing a photo with the couple.

Towards the end of the evening a special tradition took place when Ema’s sister and friends ambushed Zeeshan and took his shoes. He bargained for their return and had to promise a certain sum to secure them back on his feet while guests and Ema giggled along!

Ema & Zeeshan, thank you so much for letting us capture this day for you! We loved getting to know you both, be their for your sweet ceremony and document all the little moments that made your day truly special. ~Erik & Marissa

Shaleen & Michael | Discovery Park Bluff Maternity

Love seeing people again! I worked with Shaleen about 4 years ago so it was the loveliest surprise to get an email from her saying that she was expecting her first child with husband Michael!

Their story started many years ago when they first met. After they got married people instantly started asking them about starting a family, but they had plans to travel and spend time together strengthening their marriage before bringing in more family members. After a trip to Italy they decided it was time! When Shaleen took her pregnancy test at 5am before work one morning she burst into joyful tears after seeing the positive sign. Although she had planned on telling Michael in some cute or clever way she just couldn’t wait and rushed in to wake him up with the happy news!

We trekked down to the bluff at Discovery Park for their final photo shoot as just husband and wife. It turned out to be a gorgeous evening spent with two incredibly excited people, the best kind of night!

Congratulations Shaleen & Michael! You two are going to make such a great parenting team. And Shaleen I’m totally jealous of your glowing, gorgeous pregnancy look…can you be any more beautiful? Cannot wait to meet baby girl! ~Marissa
