From Bump to Baby | Ballard Maternity and Seattle Newborn Photographer

Capturing the milestones of life has become such a joy! Honestly we never dreamed we’d be photographing so many maternity and newborn sessions when we first started our photography business, but life has a funny way of bringing you exactly what you need. Seeing the happiness explode from these couples is not too far off from the happy smiles of our engaged couples so we keep the principles the same…a little movement, a lot of laughs, and some sweet candid moments in between.

Following these two from their bump to baby was so much fun! Teresa contacted us when she was nearing her due date so we fit her in asap before she popped. Their tiny little girl came and brought with her more sweet joy and smiles than her parents could have dreamed.

Thank you for having us document such an important moment in your lives!

KC & Peter | Pioneer Square Engagement

We always love hearing our couples’ stories. It seems that the universe has an interesting way of bringing people together. KC & Peter both have family in Chicago and although they never met in the windy city they each happened to move to Seattle around the same time. They were both looking for a change of pace, somewhere they could do a little soul searching, and a different view like the PNW had to offer. And even though the universe was trying so hard to bring them together it still took the assistance of a dating app to get that first meeting going. Needless to say they made a perfect pair and are now planning their Chicago wedding!

KC & Peter, thanks so much for documenting your Seattle love story with us. You two are such a sweet couple and we wish you the best in your marriage and future together! ~Marissa & Erik

Mahvish & Benj | Snoqualmie Maternity Photographer

The first time meeting these two was a few years ago, when they were newly engaged and taking photos to celebrate their lives together with their adorable pup, Yodi. Fast forward to this fall when we received one of our favorite kinds of emails…our clients coming back to document another milestone! This time to celebrate another life coming into their lives, growing their family by one tiny human.

Mahvish & Benj, we are so happy for you two! So glad the weather finally worked out in our favor for some fun photos in the snow. Yodi certainly had the best day ever! Can’t wait to meet your little one. ~Marissa & Erik

Ema & Zeeshan | Seattle Mehendi Photographer

Part 1: The Mehendi

We love when our couples ask us to document other important days of their wedding celebration. This Mehendi was celebrated the night before Ema & Zeeshan’s wedding day and was full of small touches to highlight both of their cultures and the fusion of them coming together. Not to mention the most awesome henna ever (notice the two different skylines on the last photo?)! Maddy, of Little Wedding Blush, brought their vision to life, transforming the backyard of Ema’s parents into a magical space.

Ema & Zeeshan, from the cotton candy to the incredible dance moves to the feeling of joy and anticipation for the next day, this evening was full of love and magic. So glad to be a part of it! ~Erik & Marissa

Katrina & Taylor | Discovery Park Maternity

We’ve known Kat since before the boys were born. She was my (Marissa) workout buddy before having the kids made me stop going to the gym, haha! We’ve always loved her (she might be one of the kindest souls on the planet) and were so happy to hear that she and her main man Taylor were expecting their first baby (well, technically their first human baby). Their baby story is one of those miracle stories you should ask her about one day! And of course their pup, Clyde, made an appearance in their final family pictures of just the three of them.

Kat & Taylor, loved making this moment a memory for you to look back on with your baby one day! You two will make amazing parents. We’re so happy for you! ~Erik & Marissa
