Happy Halloween!

Our girls didn't want to sit still for Halloween pictures, but I was able to get a couple of them with their Nana a couple of days before Halloween, on their way to their preschool Halloween party. Every year since Taimane's first Halloween, the girls have gone over to their Nana's for Halloween treats and LOVE being able to show off their costumes :).

This year, Eden decided she wanted to be a cheerleader and for a good while, Taimane would echo, "And I'm going to be a pom-pom!" When we took her to the costume store, she saw a Little Bo Peep costume she liked and decided on that instead (thank goodness, or I'd have had a real interesting time trying to figure out how to dress her as a pom-pom!).

From our home to yours, Happy Halloween! Hope everyone had a fun and safe time! :)

Unconditional : The SLAUGHTERS | Puyallup, WA Family Photographer

Rain is inevitable in the Pacific Northwest, and living in Seattle, I've tried to grow used to the fact. I've been so excited, though, for this family's photo shoot, that I've been PRAYING for dry weather at the very least (sunshine, if I had it my way, but no rain would suffice!). Lucky for me, the entire shoot was rain-free. I could photograph this family for hours - they're beautiful, inside and out! Rick and Jen are an awesome couple, and little Caden is full of personality and fun.

Thanks guys for a great afternoon! Hope you enjoy your photos :)!

Unconditional : The CENDEJAS Family | Puyallup, WA

This was definitely a fun shoot! I met up with Sara, Sal and their beautiful daughters, Alina and Mya, at Spooner Farms. It was my first time there in all of my 5 years of living in Washington - I'm not sure how I never managed to go during the Fall! Almost as soon as I started snapping the first photos of this gorgeous family (they belong in a magazine, look at them!), I could smell corn roasting and sweet caramel apples not far from us. There was a huge Pumpkin Patch, barrels of all sorts of squash, pony rides, a corn maze, games, animals, and more. The Cendejas' go to Spooner Farms every year to pick pumpkins, and I was more than happy to get a few photos of such a fun family tradition :).

Thank you Cendejas Family for inviting me along!
