Locke Family Maternity | Washington Park Arboretum

When one of our forever families grow, it’s always such an honor (and exciting news) to hear from them!

This sweet trio will become a family of 4 this summer and I can’t wait to meet their newest little one. We were chatting while walking through the blooming trees at the Arboretum and figured out that this maternity session was our 5th session together! I seriously do have the best job seeing my families again and again throughout the years.

Congrats Locke family! Shaleen, you are glowing and beautiful, just like your last pregnancy. So happy for you all during this exciting time! See you soon. ~Marissa

Katie | Seattle Senior Photographer

As a more normal graduation approaches this year, high school senior Katie mentioned she felt lucky while we walked along the beach during her senior photo session. When I asked her why? (Isn’t this a crazy time to be a student?!) She answered that she was lucky to start high school with a normal year pre-pandemic and finish high school as a senior in person. Such a positive view coming from this smart, kind, young woman!

We had such a blast creating some fun, natural images for her senior year. As a swimmer she loves the beach and wanted to incorporate this iconic spot. Golden hour was perfection and we finished with a bit of pink hour as well, how lucky indeed!

Congrats Katie (and all the seniors this year)! I’m feeling lucky we met and got to work together on this big milestone. Have so much fun celebrating all your accomplishments! ~Marissa

Sarah & Brian | Golden Gardens Engagement

They met through mutual friends and had their first date just down the street from Golden Gardens, in Ballard. In true Seattle fashion they got engaged in the rain and have been excitedly planning their wedding ever since!

It was the perfect evening to celebrate their engagement with photos on the beach- empty, but warm, a little sunshine, and the sweetest pup.

Congratulations Sarah & Brian! Can’t wait to celebrate on the big day! ~Marissa & Erik

Bokshi-Drotar Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

Our fourth session together was the sweetest! We love seeing our families as they change and grow. This adorable family moved to Seattle several years ago with their first baby and we’ve had the honor of documenting them ever since!

The newest addition to the family was perfect in every way. She yawned, slept, and didn’t even make a peep our entire session. Big sister was the opposite, giggling, jumping (when I asked her), and gently holding her sister, already a big helper to mom and dad at such a young age.

Thank you for letting me meet her and capture this moment in your lives together! ~Marissa

Clara & Tanner | Surprise Proposal Golden Gardens

He’d told her they were going to a concert at the beach. The forecast called for rain (it is winter in Seattle after all), but after some deliberation he decided we should just go for it, rain and all…it was going to be perfect.

She suspected nothing as they walked along the empty beach in the rain with their dog. As they reached the water, Tanner bent down to put a special handkerchief around their pup to help with the big ask.

Fennel, the pup, helped by pushing Clara forwards towards Tanner and wrapping them up in his leash (and also tugging like crazy with excitement). Clara was caught completely by surprise and agreed that it was the perfect proposal, rain on their favorite beach with their pup in tow.

Congratulations Clara & Tanner! What a perfect proposal. So glad Fennel was there to help too. ~Marissa
