Families


These are the times when you want to hit pause… and soak up every moment before it passes. Capture these moments that hold those memories.

 

"Becca captures the special moments in life that have turned in to the best art in my house! I am so happy to have met her, she was first our wedding photographer and the moment I saw our pictures I knew she would be there to catch so many more moments in our life. Now as my family grows she’s captured all these new moments from maternity to newborn and beyond! The best part is seeing these moments in your home every day! "  --- Staci

Why Portrait Photography is Important


It's important to invest in the memories of your life, and that is why you hire a professional photographer to capture your family once a year.

 

Life is fast, and gets faster every year. With all of us committed to so many different things, life can pass us by, but there are times when you want to slow down, hold on and remember every moment. Starting a family, or adding a new sibling to your family is one of those times.

Times where you want to hit pause and soak up every moment.

These are moments of great happiness in your life, and times when the regular snapshot on your phone, destined to be lost in the masses of images on a hard drive just won’t suffice.

These are times where you deserve beautiful images of the life you’ve created, along with heirloom prints and albums to showcase your happiness of these times.

I am a Seattle portrait photographer and I will capture these precious moments for you in a way you will treasure as much the first time you see them to the one thousandth.

Not only will I capture the moment with you, but I will help you choose the perfect way to display your memories, and deliver a final product ready to hang or an album ready to be enjoyed.

These moments should be cherished and showcased in your home, not forgotten about on a disk in the back of your desk drawer. When you only get a disk of your images, the momentum passes, and your disc of images ends up waiting for the time that never comes to be printed, and those memories are lost instead of cherished.

From snuggling so close feeling that baby in your belly, to marveling at the tiny little hand wrapped around your finger and on to the rambunctious laughter of your kids doing laps in the living room.

As, these memories we capture and of you and your family will not only bring you happiness, but will bring your kids legacy and a sense of home and being loved every time they see their own growing selves in these images through the years.

Your goal when working with a professional photographer should not be to get a disc of all the photos which will never truly be enjoyed, but it should be creating beautiful moments and showcasing them as art in your home. Delivered ready to display, with no additional work from you.

Are you wondering why I don't offer a digital image inclusive package like every other photographer you see? 

I'm well aware that the vast majority of photographers offer a package that lets you walk away with a disc of digital images from your shoot, and don't offer printed products. I've gone back and forth on this myself, changing my packages to include or not included digital images over the past couple of years, as I completely understand the draw of wanting the digital images from your shoot. But after 12 years of photographing families, I often have clients come back year after year, and they never got around to printing any of the images from the digitals. They live on Facebook or on some random folder on their computer. 

If you don't print your photos, your kids can't watch themselves grow alongside you. They can't pick up a print of them and mommy and exclaim excitedly "That's us mommy! I love us!" Because, while you can open up the Facebook app on your phone and peruse, your 3 year old can't. They won't have those living memories helping them understand how they are a part of your family. They won't see the visual memory of them growing and what they used to look like, and the adventures you've had together. 

If it's not there for your child to see daily, how do they know where they fit in the story of your families lives?

If you don't print your photos, in ten years, you'll be hanging out with your teenager when they ask to see photos of when they lost their first tooth and what the gap in their mouth looked like, and you'll say "I posted it on Facebook" to which your teenager will ask "What's Facebook?" As if you think that Facebook will be here forever, just think about Myspace. And if you think you can just pull out your phone, try and think about what phone you had a decade ago. Do you know where those photos are today?

It's for those reasons that I think I do you a disservice by creating beautiful portraits of your family and memories for you all to enjoy, just to have them shuffled onto the bottom of your todo list of printing them for years. Let me help create beautiful portraits of where you are in life today, then print them beautifully so you have them on your walls in your photo albums to be cherished. You don't have to do anything other than choose your favorites and the size you want. I'll retouch, print and present them to you like the art that they are.

With all that said, I understand you'll still want digital images. And, yes, I do offer them. You get them for free actually, you get a free digital version of every single photograph you choose to print. That way you have the digital backup alongside the beautiful printed portrait you look at and enjoy daily.


My goal is to not only create images you will cherish, but to deliver beautiful products ready to display.  
The products delivered will last generations, and will make you smile whenever you happen to pass by them.
