Stefania & Phil | Seattle Waterfront Engagement

It’s where they take their daily walks together, planning for the future, talking about upcoming road trips and taco trucks they’d like to try next. It was important for Stefania to make the location feel authentic, truly a place they use often, so the walkway along the waterfront by Pocket Beach was the perfect spot for their engagement session.

The day was a bit spotty in terms of weather, but luckily the one hour we chose for the shoot happened to be dry! We walked along the tracks under the Olympic Sculpture Park, hopped on the bike path to explore the deserted Pocket Beach, and ended up at the pier with some fishermen, braving the storms that day like us.

Stefania & Phil, thank you for such a lovely day capturing your excitement as you enter this next phase of life together. You two certainly make a fun, joyful duo and we’re so happy for you! Congrats! ~Marissa & Erik

Neda, Ali & Borna | Medina Park Maternity

The best morning sunshine, mixed in with the frosty grass and a beautiful family inside and out made for the perfect winter maternity session.

It was cold, but the sun warmed our backs and as the sun melted the frost, steam rose from the pond, creating some seriously cool foggy backdrops.

Neda & Ali, you two were perfect playing with Borna and chasing him around. I loved that we were able to find a quiet moment at the end for a few shots of just the two of you as well! You all make a beautiful family and Neda, you are positively glowing. Cannot wait to meet the newest addition! ~Marissa

Jessica & Garrett | TreeHouse Point Maternity

A few years ago I met this couple for their engagement session at the UW Waterfront Activites Center for a super fun paddle on the lake in boats.

I was overjoyed to hear from them again, this time for their next big life moment! Jessica decided to choose another incredible location and we planned their maternity session to include lush greens and a very PNW feel at TreeHouse Point. We lucked out with just a few sprinkles among the moss-covered trees and quaint tree houses. They were even down for a little hike to the waterfront, where the river was roaring after several rainy days.

What a fun shoot! Thank so much Jessica & Garrett for letting me be a part of another big life moment for you all. ~Marissa

Lozano Family Year 4 | Discovery Park

Love seeing this family grow each year! It’s a big family (some years there are even more members joining for photos), and they’re full of love and fun. There’s always laughter and lots of hugs during our sessions together. Next year I’ll get to join back in on the hugs 😉

Thank you for letting me document your growing family Lozano Family! So glad we had a morning of sunshine and laughing kids. ~Marissa

Kate Talcott Artistry | Seattle Business Branding Photographer

We love when our forever families ask us to use our photography in other ways! This sweet mama is an amazing artist and decided to start a small business with her husband to sell her art. They wanted some marketing for their website and social media feeds and that’s where we came in. Our first shoot together over the summer really focused on their brand, headshots and photos to use for the website. This shoot was entirely Christmas and full of holiday cheer (in October)!

It was such a blast getting into the Xmas spirit early and capturing some family photos mixed with business (aren’t all small business owners such a mix of family and business anyway?). We alternated between getting some detail shots (Kate is the master at getting everything designed, staged, and ready to go), some candids of Kate working (she made everything on the table, the wrapping paper, and even the dog portraits hanging above the mantel…she’s a seriously talented artist), fun photos of Andy carrying all the packaging, and their cute daughter eating cookies (certainly the best job of the day). All in a days work am I right mamas out there who also run a business!?

The time we spent together switching back and forth between Kate being a mom and business owner reminded me of my own day to day!

Thanks so much Kate, Andy & Penny for letting me into your lives, your business and even your family Xmas traditions this year! ~Marissa
