Come On Baby! | The Ciccarellis

Hey Baby!

We want to meet you! It’s your due date and we’re so excited to hold you, see you, hear you cry, and have you meet your big brother. We definitely did not think it would be this long until we’d meet (aren’t second babies supposed to come a little early at least???), and we’re glad you’re enjoying the coziness of your first home, but let’s do this! Your quarters are getting cramped, your mama is getting tired, and the anticipation of your arrival has all three of us on the edge of our seats!

As we prep to meet you we’ve been nesting hard (as in a DIY total bathroom remodel, cleaning the entire house, staying ahead of all deadlines, and redecorating the house) so please come and relieve us of feeling that we need to do one million things before your arrival (but thanks for giving us the time to update our photo wall and some family albums).

This week your older brother has started saying, “I’m a big brother” which is pretty darn cute. Why don’t you come out and make that statement true for him? Although we’re not sure he’ll be entirely excited about sharing our attention, hearing you cry at night, and the adjustments life will need to make at first- we know you two will be pals sooner rather than later.

To excite you about coming here are some of our favorite photos of you so far!

David, Reena & Ellie | Seattle Family Photographer

Another one of our 2016 wedding couples had a baby! And of course she is full of sweetness, just like her parents. These two came into our lives over two years ago for their sun-filled, giggly Pike Place Market engagement session. We knew they were a special duo, moving across the country together for new adventures and to build their relationship. Their fusion wedding at the Edgewater with Invisible Hostess planner Natasha was full of personal touches, love and even featured in Seattle Bride!

Now they are onto an entirely new adventure, sharing a new home with their little girl. And then there were three! Little Ellie was exactly the amount of perfect sweetness you’d expect from two of the most loving people. Just wait until you see all her big expressions for such a young age too!

David, Reena & Ellie we couldn’t be happier for your family! We could have spent all day with smiley Ellie. Can’t wait to hear her laugh and see her grow as you become the exceptional parents we know you’ll be (and honestly already are!). ~Erik, Marissa (& Bryce too!)

2017 Behind the Scenes with the Ciccarellis

When we look back on each past year it’s not the glamour, the best shots, the long hours that we dwell on, but the experiences and memories that make us feel like we have the best job in the world. It’s the time spent with the people we get blessed to meet, to capture, and to create some beautiful moments with. For us, we remember each wedding, engagement, couple, family, and new baby by a special memory- like the first dance that had everyone crying happy tears or the last dance that brought everyone out of their seats or the couple that couldn’t take their eyes off each other the entire walk down the aisle or the family that laughed together the entire time.

We know that not everyone is likely to remember their photographer, but we honestly can say that we remember all of our clients and it truly brings us joy working with them! Here are a few behind the scenes photos and our yearly traditional photo-bombs (mostly Erik gets a kick out of doing these, but I manage to jump in a few!).

Bryce is learning early how to photobomb!

And soothe newborns! He is an assistant in the making.

We love showing our clients photos as we work!

We made a new fury friend at Daniel & Matthew’s zoo wedding this summer!

By the end of a session our clients truly work it and we all just have a ton of fun!

CiccarelliPhotography_1712

Gotcha!

We also test a lot of our locations and lighting before our clients arrive, which results in some truly gorgeous portraits of us since we take posing so very seriously.

We truly love working with all the people that come into our lives. Our goal is to make our clients laugh and have a great experience while getting some beautiful photos, but we also walk away with aching cheeks from all the laughs that our clients gift us. We feel so lucky to work with such happy people! Thanks for reliving our year with us. Cheers to a happy and healthy 2018! ~Erik & Marissa

Romeo Newborn | Seattle Newborn Photographer

Our own hair baby, Bryce, has met his match! This little guy, Romeo (how amazing is that name?), entered the world with a full head of dark locks and the chubbiest cheeks a mama could ask for. His new parents are doing such an amazing job caring for him with a calm that has already rubbed off on this chill little dude.

We loved their light color scheme and baby Romeo’s jungle themed nursery (based on their love of travel!). Romeo, you are in good hands little one. ~Erik & Marissa
