I am so happy to announce I have a new location!  For the past two years I have taken clients on Bainbridge Island, I have mostly shot at the beach. I love the beach for the open space and the pretty colors.

However, I am proud to announce I now have an alternative location to the beach: Rustica Island Farm and Market here on Bainbridge Island! The 25 acre farm is complete with an orchard, flowers, rolling hills, huge trees and even some very cute donkeys! There is also a market with wonderful antiques and fresh produce. You can find them here: Website or Facebook Page

Please feel free to contact me HERE if you would like to book a session at this new location. If you are looking for Christmas card photos, I am offering Mini Sessions through the fall at $175 each family for 10 images (2 family minimum, 3 family maximum). So find out if any friends of family would like to team up with you on your picture day so you can take advantage of the mini session price!

I took my girls to the farm for a “test session” and we had so much fun!

I’m really excited and honored to be part of this blog circle.
On the 20th of each month I will be part of a circle of fellow mothers and photographers in a blog post entitled ‘LETTERS TO OUR CHILDREN’.
From here just visit the blog of Jaime Coyle Photography and keep following the circle round back to me.

Dear Elle,

When you were first born, you had jet black hair and cheeks so big they looked odd on a newborn. The instant they placed you on my chest, my heart grew three sizes. I had never experienced such an instant and all encompassing love. As the light through the hospital window grew pink and faded and my eyes grew heavy, I placed you in the bassinet next to my bed. I lay my head back on the pillow. I listed to the beeps and murmurs of the machines. I listened to my own breathing. And then I listened for your breathing. I did not hear it.

At that moment, a heavy weight gathered around my shoulders. It was a cape of fear. I reached my hand into your bassinet and placed it on your chest, relived to feel the tiny rise and fall. Those are the two ways motherhood has changed me the most; a new heart so full, brimming with over flowing love and the heavy cape of fear I must wear every day for the rest of my life. I will always love you more than all the stars in the sky just as I will always lie awake at night sending silent wishes into the universe that no harm, sadness or pain ever reaches you, even though I know it will.  Being a mother is as hard as it is beautiful. I love you, bug.
