Dumich Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

We always say we have the greatest job in the world. And this is one of the reasons we feel that way!

Tiny baby Charlie was welcomed to the world by his sweet sister and loving parents and not only did we get to document his first chubby cheeks and itty fingers, but we got to love on him too! See, I (Marissa) have known Maggie (mama) from a past life when we were all living in Chicago and Maggie and I taught down the hall from each other at a Chicago Public School. Little did we know way back then that our lives would change so much, we’d both end up in the PNW, married, raising kids and having playdates. It just makes documenting their newest addition that much sweeter!

Congratulations Maggie & Andy! He’s perfect. ~Erik & Marissa

Ema & Zeeshan | UW & Suzzallo Engagement Photographer

These two bookworms are meant to be together. Not only did they host a book-themed wedding, but in planning their winter engagement session it only made sense to visit the UW campus and tiptoe into the Suzzallo library for a few photos. After our fill of fun with books we tromped around the rest of campus laughing away (he really knows how to make her laugh).

Such a fun session with two seriously smart and incredibly kind people. If you haven’t seen this library it is a must-see, especially if you are big Harry Potter fans like us! ~Erik & Marissa

Tree Farm | The Ciccarellis

It was the only day we could do it, between nap schedules, shoots, work, and the craziness of the holiday season. The forecast was not great, it would definitely rain, but we were determined to go to the same place we did last year and have Rhys be a part of our family tree picking tradition at the farm.

Sure enough, after a bit of a drive (the littles did great, thank goodness) we arrived in the rain. The kids were so good about it, even though it wasn’t just sprinkling! We set up a tripod and took a few pics before selecting our tree and then getting to the best part…candy canes and hot cocoa! The car ride home was toasty and comforting as we sipped our cocoa and talked about how silly we were to be walking through the rain on the tree farm. Certainly a year we won’t forget!

Happy holidays! We hope you have a wonderful week celebrating with those you love. Fingers crossed that this rain turns to snow next week! ~Erik & Marissa

Leila & Shehzad | Golden Gardens Maternity

He surprised her with a photo session for her birthday! They had a busy month…prepping for baby, traveling to Australia for their baby moon (if they don’t do it now, when would they?), celebrating her birthday and entering into their third trimester for their first baby. They will be bringing their boy home to a life full of travel, morning muffins on the weekends, and quality family time here and with their clan back in Canada.

Their excitement is so obvious and they’re totally ready to take on this new adventure of raising a child together (and seeing what he looks like!). So excited for you Leila & Shehzad! Thanks for letting me document you two before he arrives. And Leila, you sure make one gorgeous pregnant mama! ~Marissa

Marissa & Steven | Discovery Park Engagement

Right before moving out of state these two high school sweethearts (although they actually didn’t start dating until college when they realized they were the only two from home that came to the same school) decided to document their time in the PNW with an engagement session. They’ll always remember it as the place they lived when they fell in love.

Thank you for letting us be part of your love story Marissa & Steven! ~Erik & Marissa
