There’s nothing more quintessentially summer for a photographer than bright, sunny, open fields. The long, beautiful grass makes for a perfect backdrop for family photos. Meadowbrook Farm had so many amazing spots for these families to giggle and snuggle during their mini sessions in North Bend, Washington.
The R Family
When Grandma and Grandpa came to visit from out of state, they were so excited to be a part of the R family’s photos. I absolutely love generational sessions! It’s so special to see the bond between grandparents and their grandbabies. The pure joy and pride that they have is so fun to capture, and these memories are priceless. Just look at this grandpa’s face as he looks at his first grandson! True love!
The H Family
I first met the H family last year for Christmas pictures. Their little guy has so much FUN energy, and he kept me on my toes, giggling the entire time. As we finished up the session, we explored different areas of Meadowbrook and came across a bridge with the most beautiful light. This little man loved running back and forth across the bridge, peeking into my camera each time he came close again. I truly loved capturing the special bond these three have!
The D Family
I absolutely love this family! I first met their mom last year when we met for coffee to chat about their family session. She told me about her amazing journey, having been born with a heart defect. She’s had a number of surgeries and was even told it may not be safe to have children. Yet, here she is, an incredible mommy! Her deep pride and love for being a mother just illuminates straight from her. I love photographing these four and their amazing love for each other!
The H Family
Have you ever seen such a radiant mommy-to-be? I didn’t think so! She was absolutely stunning, mother nature herself. I loved watching this family interact as they talked about their excitement for their next baby girl to arrive. There is such a special bond between sisters, and I know that this sweet little girl is one of the best big sisters around!
The P Family
It’s hard to imagine there’s a cuter set of three sisters out there. The love these three share is so special. The big sisters absolutely loved snuggling their baby sister, and baby sister clearly enjoyed all of the attention! Mom, dad, and I all laughed in pure joy watching them interact. I truly loved photographing these sweet little girls and this beautiful family!
The R Family
This family is so incredibly special to me. I met them a couple of years ago when mom contacted me, asking for a last minute mini session. At the time, mini sessions weren’t something I really offered, but I could tell how important it was to her, and I was excited to meet a new family! We had an instant bond and this mama inspired the inception of The Mini Mama! She was the one who encouraged me to consider doing all mini sessions! She was the seed planter, and since then, I have watched her beautiful little girl grow and blossom through my photos. Three generations of unconditional and beautiful love. I can truly say that they have become friends and family!
The C Family
I know I said it before, but I’ll say it again – isn’t this mommy-to-be stunning? The joy and beauty that comes with expecting a child is like nothing else. This beautiful family was so ready to meet baby sister, they couldn’t stop smiling the whole session! We laughed as big sister ran around and picked as many dandelions as she could find, and tried her best to avoid snuggles. But as you can see by her big grins, she couldn’t hold out long! She is truly a wonderful big sister!
The H Family
This sweetpea was an independent little soul who absolutely loved picking flowers and exploring the grass. She wanted to move, move, move, and was bound and determined not to stop! Mommy convinced her to slow down for some airplane tosses, tickles, and snuggles, but was quickly off to explore again. I loved capturing her mix of shyness and curiosity!
