Hope and Memory Photography bio picture
  • I help clients capture their child’s personality. Oh, and I’m really good at acting (I used to be a performer in a former life), terrific at eating dessert (my fat jeans would definitely agree), and my Russian accent is stellar (Russians have confused me for an actual Russian until I give them a blank face when my Russian vocabulary runs out). Clients love my creative whimsical photos and are always commenting on how I’ve captured them in such a unique and beautiful way. Personally, I think my ability to return emails faster than Superman’s flight speed is pretty impressive. My Momma thinks I’m determined and that I have great hair and beautiful eyes. My friends envy my ability to balance everything on my overly full plate (they should be envying my husband because I certainly couldn’t do it without him). My clients love that I effectively capture their family and bottle moments in time for them to savor for years to come; I help them hold on to their memories.

Twins! | Seattle Child Photographer

I’ve always wanted to photograph twins. They fascinate me and the special bond that twins hold captivates my imagination. And I must say, these two are pretty great (actually, the whole family is pretty spectacular). We had a great time playing around at Gasworks Park in the cold. I had fun playing with the color of this urban session as well. Aren’t they fun!

Sometimes I know that I am going to love the shot as soon as I hear the shutter snap. As a photographer there is no better feeling than the one you get when you know you’ve gotten the shot you were after. As simple as this photo is, it evoked that wonderful adrenaline rush for me and was hands down my favorite of the session and I would venture to say one of my favorites of the year!

Have yourself a merry little Christmas… | Seattle Lifestyle Photography

I was excited to join this fun Seattle family for a lifestyle session in their home! We baked cookies for Santa Claus, had a ridiculously fun flour fight while the cookies baked, and drank some hot cocoa. All while snuggled in their favorite cozy Christmas pajamas.

I love lifestyle sessions because they are absolutely perfect during the cold and wet months and are totally different and very personal for each family. It’s a great chance to spend some time with your family without all the stress of looking perfect for your photos (c’mon moms, I know you know what I am talking about… and I am SO guilty of this when it comes to my personal pictures, so no judgement here!)… great photos AND memory making. That’s my favorite kind of multitasking.

Welcome to the world, Ellieanna! | Olympia Baby Photographer

I’m right in the middle of busy season and am so behind on blogging all these lovely images. Hitting busy season directly after coming back from maternity leave (while caring for 3 kids!) has proven to be a wee bit more difficult than I anticipated, but I am counting my blessings and pressing on ever forward. As such, I am combining a few of my favorite maternity photos from this momma’s session with her newborn photos that I shot this past weekend. Instant gratification (if only pregnancy went by so fast)!
