Family Easter mini sessions Hey Everyone! 

Oh my gosh! How many of you got snow that stuck around these past two days?? Mine melted fast (thankfully) I SO LOVE snow, but after Snowmaggedon and the cabin fever it brought, Im DEFINITELY ready for some spring time sunshine!!! How about you??

And another fun thing that comes with Spring is EASTER! AND I don't usually run mini sessions this time of year BUT for some reason I have felt the need to not only run my MOMMY AND ME (if this sounds more like what you are looking for you can sign up here ) in may BUT I think Easter Sessions at one of my MOST FAVORITE locations, Wild Hearts Farm, would also be SO FUN! SO I am doing it! And who knows, if these easter and mommy and me sessions do well, then maybe I will think about adding them into my regular schedules from here on out! We'll see! :) Anyways, I rented the truck which will have such a cute easter set up BUT there are so many other cute spots (tree swing, gorgeous white barn, pond and MORE! I'll post pics of Owen so you can see all this beautiful place has to offer!) And what's great about this location is that if the weather is not in our favor, which could TOTALLY happen in spring, there are a few spots with cover so we can continue our shoot regardless of rain etc. 

SO here are the details: 


Saturday April 13th At WILD HEARTS FARM in Puyallup 

20 MIN sessions // 10 high res images 

$199 plus tax

To book: 

**Update: only spot available is 1030a! **click below to book it

So get your easter best on and meet me at the farm! I CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL THERE!!!!

First ever Mommy and ME Sessions " A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take"

Raise your hand if you agree?! (insert me raising my hand high). I am super duper excited to be able to offer for the first time a MOMMY AND ME sessions at the beach just in time for MOTHERS DAY! Its such a great time to get IN FRONT of the camera with your sweet little (or big now) babes and celebrate being their mommy. Too often mama's are BEHIND the camera taking the photos and not in them, until their ONE annual family photo session (usually in the fall or winter for holiday cards).

AND before you complain about not liking your photos taken please think about this: YOUR KIDS WILL WANT PICTURES OF YOU AND WITH YOU IN THEIR ADULT LIVES!!!!!! So lets all get dolled up, and have some fun with just YOU and your beloved kiddos! Who's coming!?

Session details:

May 4th, 2019  $189.00 plus tax

Senior Year Hey Everyone! 

HAPPY FRIDAY! Its a gloomy one here so I thought I would post some GORGEOUS sunny photos that show off my gorgeous senior! We chose the perfect fall day in a perfect fall location for her shoot. Washington really shows off in the fall time. Its my most favorite time of year. OR at least the start of it. I love Oct through Dec! 

SO meet Ashlynn! I am still in shock that she is a senior. BUT she is! So how I met her is that her mama used to run an amazing daycare that Evan went to for years when he was little. I think Evan was 3 when he started going there so that was a long time ago! Ashlynn was always one of Evans favorite! So now fast forward 6 or so years and here we are now photographing her senior year! 

We met at one of my favorite locations for fall photos and had just the best time! She is so grown up and fun to be around. She is driven and will go so far in this world! Excited for you my dear! 

NOW to show off her amazing photos! Take a peek! See for yourself how stunning she is....

Pumpkin Patch mini sessions! HEY ALL! 

Alright, SO I mentioned on FB that I was thinking of having pumpkin minis and wanted to know if there was an interest!? AND SEEMS THERE IS. I reached out to a sweet local Church fundraiser pumpkin patch here in the federal way area about having my mini's there and they were delighted! AND I decided to DONATE at least $10 per session that books to their church/community garden fundraiser! What is their fundraiser for? Its to raise money for their community garden ( Check out their website for more info on the garden itself!

THIS pumpkin patch is so cute! I took my boys here last year and we loved it! It boasts a small, fun, community driven experience with great pumpkins, yard games, hay rides and more! There are also some GORGEOUS fall trees in the back ground so if you dont necessarily want the pumpkins we can use the trees and leaves as your backdrop instead ( see pictures below of my boys there last year) PLEASE NOTE: these are FUN, QUICK sessions so its best to pick one backdrop (in the pumpkins or back by the fall leaves- not a combo of both) AND come dressed in your fall best OR in a your halloween costume!

PLEASE NOTE: There are NO make up days available for these mini sessions! I will be there rain or shine *UNLESS TORRENTIAL downpour/storm like weather, that could ruin my camera equipment. Should I cancel due to extreme weather then I will FIND a makeup date OR you will keep the credited amount for a future session. No refunds.

Sunset magic HEY EVERYONE! 

Been a while on the blog posts LOL! (I literally start EVERY blog with this exact sentence hahahahahaha) I really do need to get more consistent (AND there is my second sentence of every blog LOL)... But its true. I really enjoy my job and I really get excited to share photos with everyone (thats why my instagram feed will blow up after sessions!!) so that I really need to just start blogging after my sessions. 

So most of you may know, but I am born and raised here in the beautiful PNW. And I am one of those "weirdos" that LOVES the gloomy, grey sky, cold and even drizzly days.  I could live in my rain coat and be just fine BUT the "gloomy" season is just long enough for me to crave some good sunny weather! AND cue in PNW summertime. We have the best summers! (everyone that lives here I know would agree). And there is nothing i love more than a photo session at sunset. Here is one we did a couple weeks ago at one of my favorite spots, Redondo. I have been photographing this gorgeous family for a few years and I never think we can top the previous session, but each time we get together we create some magic! Take a look....

I am still booking sunset photos this summer BUT spaces are limited. Contact me now to book your session!

WHAT A YEAR! IMG_6700IMG_6700 I cannot believe that this was the last day of my sons third grade year. And OH what a year! I believe that this is the first time I have written a whole blog post on this subject BUT i just had to, as I felt SO compelled to write about his teacher! NOW, let me first say that we have had such a great experience with all of his teachers at his school. Every year, he has a class and a teacher that gets to know him, understands how he works and helps push him and get him to reach his highest potential. I have gained relationships with his teachers since I have the wonderful availability to chaperone on field trips, help in class and more! That also gives me a "behind the scenes" look into the daily routines that our kids experience at school on a daily basis. Well this year was such a treat and I wish I could have helped more this year in the classroom.

This year, we had a teacher that exemplifies everything we want for our children's education. I wish that we could CLONE her OR even better, that she would just move up to teaching 4th grade so that we can have her again next year! Sadly I do not think either of those will happen. BUT when all the parents are crying on the last day of school you KNOW its because we are all wondering how any teacher from here out could ever compare.  IMG_4812IMG_4812

What made her so special? LET ME TELL YOU... Here is just a SMALL description of the things that I was fortunate enough to witness this year (and i know there are COUNTLESS hours of extras that she did that I will never know about): 

Aside from planning her lessons, she was the organizer of all the field trips! And when i say ALL Im talking about 6 or 7! YES that many! And before you gasp let me explain. She understands the importance of these outside, hands-on, in the real world learning experiences! Our children gain so much more from field trips that just the pumpkins they bring home, or the shows that they see. Im thankful for all the trips we made this year they would not have happened with out all her organization skills! IMG_9642IMG_9642 IMG_3101IMG_3101 IMG_6209IMG_6209 IMG_7754IMG_7754 IMG_6170IMG_6170 IMG_7737IMG_7737

She also organized what we call MARKET DAY! And this is such a fantastic and busy event. The students get to design and create a product, market the product to their peers, and then organize a booth to sell your product to the rest of the students. And the students get to keep all their purchases made with their BOBCAT bucks that were earned the month prior to Market Day by good behavior, staying on task etc etc... HELLO FUTURE BUSINESS OWNERS! 

I saw her attend and participate in many of the schools skate nights! We loved skating with her, and Evan loved seeing her outside of the classroom! it was a special thing! 

She hand wrote and mailed a thank you card to our home during the holiday break to thank us for the small gift Evan gave her before break. I know she got a lot of gifts and so that was a lot of cards to write.  Talk about the little things that add up to be the big things!

This was the FIRST year that I got to enjoy a Mothers Day Tea and a fabulous presentation. It was SO special and I am glad that I got to experience it and I am so thankful that she planned it for us!

IMG_3354IMG_3354 IMG_3331IMG_3331

She created memory books (literally so detailed and time consuming) for Evan and all the other students with all of their school year art work! It was SO beautiful and she took pictures of all the kids and all the events over the year and added them into the books! It was so perfect! I will cherish it forever!


Along with the last one, she took so many photos of the kids but what i thought was so cool was that she took pictures of the kids and their family at conferences and then had frames designed by the student set out around her whole classroom displaying all her students and their families for the whole year! That was fun to see every time I was in the classroom!


Every holiday (and most teachers do this but its oh so fun) she made it special! Whether it was Christmas time or Saint Patricks day it was always a fun event. See what her Leprechaun did to her room and my cute valentines at the special valentines party. AND she always remembered Owen and had something for him to have or do along with big brother (which is Owens Happy place-being alongside big brother). IMG_1412IMG_1412

IMG_0513IMG_0513 IMG_0523IMG_0523 IMG_0029IMG_0029 IMG_4808IMG_4808

Honestly I could probably sit here and come up with another full list of amazingness that she did but I will just close with this. She genuinely cares about our kids. She learns about our kids. She is known for having the most well behaved class and well that doesn't happen by accident, it comes from the structure and guidelines that she puts in place, her consistency and the trust she builds with her students. She truly is one of a kind and we will really miss her next year! Evan has grown educationally, emotionally, socially and physically over these past 9 month THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS for such a great experience. We hope you have a fabulous summer and get a chance to rest and have some great family time for yourself!

I hope the next group of kids and parents realize who they have next year and love you as much as we all did!

Kadie and Tanner // Engaged Love is in the air...these two cuties are tying the knot this fall and I was OVER the moon when she asked if I would be their photographer (Kadie is my cousin). Right away we planned her engagement session. Both her and Tanner love the PNW and being out in all its glory so we decided to go to Twin Falls in North Bend. Its a pretty accurate depiction of this beautiful state so we were happy! It even rained the whole session, so that was PNW-y too LOL. But we had planned for that and we were ok if it decided to rain! Which reminds me ya'll, I photograph year round, and so don't hesitate to book in the early part of the year! Some of my most favorite sessions have been captured in the first 3 months of the year! Anyhow, here are some of the photos from their beautiful PNW rainy day engagement session!

My oldest turns NINE Well, I can't believe it but my oldest turned nine this past sunday! NINE! I feel like it was just yesterday that he was my beautiful, sweet little newborn baby, making me a mom. I have taken this role of mom very seriously since the moment he came into my life, AND i have based many of my adult decisions around what is best for him (and a few years later, his little brother). I may not make the most money, own an expensive house, or the coolest car but what i can say for sure is that he is in a house that loves him to his core (and even beyond that). That he is in a home that wishes nothing but the best for him. A home that cares about his safety, his education, his happiness. I hope he grows up a to be a good human. One that has manners. One that is smart and works hard. One that opens doors for strangers. One that does whats right not what is easy. Treats women with the respect they deserve. And a man that isn't afraid to stand up for what is right, show his emotions, and one that loves and gives generously. I know that he is only nine and it seems I am writing about the far future BUT these past nine year have been a BLIP and we are already HALF WAY to an adult Evan. HALF WAY! and the years seem to go faster and faster so my hopes and dreams for him now, for his future, seem ever so relevant. 

well like every year for his birthday I took some photos to remember this fun (and sometimes very frustrating) time in our lives as he turns nine! 

Enjoy (and I snuck a few of little brother in there too).

PNW specialized headshots Well hello and happy Wednesday! 

I blogging today to let you all know that we do company headshots (big company or small) and we specialize in outdoor headshot. We love where we live and work and hope that you do too. So why not showcase it when you do your headshots. Having an online presence is so great for your customers and YOU (and your employees if you have some) need to be the face of your company! 

We can also take detail shots for your website to help build a cohesive look throughout your store or website. You can use the detail shots for headers/footer, menu dropdown images and more! We have helps several large companies in bellevue and downtown seattle update their executive headshots, to small private gym owners, to law firms, and small business owners and more!

To give you one example I have chosen Courtney, a small business owner here in seattle, with her bio and her headshots taken. If you would like to see any examples of some of the other companies we have photographed for PLEASE EMAIL us and we can show you! We would love to get some updated headshots for YOU and your thriving business!


Doula and Owner of Courtney the Doula. Courtney became a birth doula in January of 2016 and has since pursued her passion for birth while educating, advocating for, and empowering parents who are preparing to venture into parenthood. Her passion is for women to see just how strong they really are and to create a sacred time for mother, baby, and partner to bond in this joyous time. Outside of the joys from birth, you may find her hiking, creating art through plants, eating delicious food (often prepared by her husband), sipping hot chocolate and tea, and enjoying the people who doula her through life. She lives in Seattle with her husband and sweet little chihuahua, and serve the greater Seattle area. 

You will also see in her headshots she chose to incorporate a Rebozo! (what looks like a scarf). This is a product that she uses all the time and so we thought it would be great to take some photos with it! (what is a rebozo? click here to see wikipedia's description :) 

If you would like to get in touch with Courtney about her services (i couldn't recommend any one any higher than I do her) clicking here is how to get a hold of her! or you can reach her by email: Or by phone: 206-851-6609

ENJOY! (Side note: It was raining the day of her headshots and since she and I both LOVE the PNW and all its glory (including the rain) we continued with the shoot! If you read my blog last week about shooting in the PNW you will see that I am telling the truth when I say I dont mind the rain!)

PNW family session Hi there! :) HAPPY MONDAY! Hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did... Maybe I will blog it soon!! 

One of my favorite things since starting my photography business is the location in which I live and I get to shoot in. I love (LOVE) the PNW. I even love the rain. And if its not an absolute downpour I tell my clients that I love photographing in the rain and if it is planned to rain that we keep the session (not to reschedule). I do usually leave it up to the clients but most seem to be receptive to the fact that they may have rain on their session day! 

Now I know its summer now, but we definitely have short summers here and fall/winter will be here before we know it (my busiest time of year) and so I though it would be fun to show such a gorgeous session, captured in the rain! :) TRUE PNW style! Enjoy!

Lifestyle newborns Hello! It has been quite some time since I have blogged on a regular basis. BUT I really do have so many fun images to share that I have made the decision to finally start blogging more! <3

My first post is about my newborn sessions. I do a fair amount of them and I thought it would be great to share a typical session with you. I only photograph lifestyle newborn sessions. What does this mean? It means I like to travel light, so I will really be only bringing my camera bag and then I like to use things you already have at home for your baby! The main rooms that they are photographed in are the living room, the parents room and the nursery. OR which ever rooms have the best lighting :) 

I like to incorporate mom, dad and any siblings in some of the photos. But its not always necessary. Your sweet baby also does not need to be asleep either. I like to capture what life is like now that you have a new baby in your life. And sometimes that means an awake or crying baby, and thats perfect. 

So without much more talking, here are some sweet newborn photos I was able to capture at the beginning of this year! :) 

IMG_6574-2IMG_6574-2 IMG_6583IMG_6583 IMG_6634IMG_6634 IMG_6615-2IMG_6615-2 IMG_6653IMG_6653 IMG_6662-2IMG_6662-2 IMG_6693IMG_6693 IMG_6710IMG_6710 IMG_6725IMG_6725 IMG_6761IMG_6761 IMG_6773-2IMG_6773-2 IMG_6795IMG_6795 IMG_6817IMG_6817

Happy new Year! Well, now that I got my workshop blog post finished (find it here if you missed it) I want to take a moment and blog about our new year, plans for this year and just share some of my new years eve photos with you all! 

A few years ago, we started a tradition to do a "family explore day" on New years eve! I think this is the 3rd year doing it, and well, its my favorite! This year was especially memorable for me! See, my love language is Quality Time and one of my most favorite ways to spend quality time is exploring new or fun places with my 3 guys and my camera! HEAVEN! This year we chose to go mosey around Snoqualmie/North bend area. Now we have been to the falls, and have eaten at a restaurant there but never really just walked around the small town and it was so fun!  What a blessed way for us to close out 2016.  I bet like many of you, we are ready for the excitement of 2017. This past year has been a little bit difficult for us, but isn't it in the difficult times that you grow stronger? So as much as I am ready for 2017 I dont shy away from tough times before us.

"The pain that you have been feeling, can't compare to the joy thats coming" Romans 8:18.

And trust me, we went through some tough stuff. Emotional and physical, but we made it! Life always has a way of throwing us unexpected curve balls but its in those moments I try my hardest to see the long term outcome, the strength I can gain and the closeness it can bring to my family instead of the present confusion, hurt or pain. Its hard, but with steady prayer, and keeping connected and practicing an optimistic outlook to all situations helps! 

And 2016 wasn't all bad, I had one of my busiest years in my photography business yet! Such a blessing that came at the perfect time. I cannot express how thankful I am for all of my amazing clients (that I actually prefer to call my friends instead of clients). I met some of the most amazing people this year, as well as had the ability to see all my yearly clients! 

I am so excited for this year in my business as well! I am going to change a few things and add a few thing and move a few things and update a few things and remove a few things! LOL But seriously this year is all about focus, stream lining my process and booking more! :) So all in all, a little bit of everything is changing and well, change is good! Anyway, thanks for stopping by! 

Here are some of my favorite photos from our adventure! And here is to a fun, adventurous, mindful, successful and most of HAPPY 2017!

Learn your camera workshop!!! Hello everyone and happy new year! I hope you all had a wonderful, fun filled holiday with some time for rest and relaxation as well!

Here at Photos By Angie and Paul we had a delightful, busy, fun and restful (at times) vacation! It was much needed too! We are still taking a little more time off but will slowly start getting back to work!

Talking about getting back to work, I am SOOOO excited! We will kick off the year right! SO... For all of you that received a great camera for Christmas (or already have one), I am so excited to let you all know that I will be offering my 4th 'Learn your Camera workshop' at the end of this month!!!! This is a comprehensive class to give you all the basics in order to get you out of auto and start taking control of your photos. Learn what the numbers and buttons do on your camera and how to make them work to your advantage. Well talk about exposure, lighting and composition too. It will cover a LOT! Whether you are starting out in the photography industry (or thinking about it), or just want to take quality photos of your kid, or when you travel this class is for you! 

How will the day work? Its a day long class (around 5-ish hours give or take), held on a Saturday, where we will have a “class time” first, then we have some hands on learning time where you will take photos with me and then we will have an open discussion/ question and answer time at the end! We also serve light refreshments/snack and drinks through out the day! 

THE DETAILS: The class will be limited to 8-10 people to ensure an intimate group with lots of time for everyone. It will be held on Jan 28th in federal way area (final details will be sent out once you have purchased your seat!). And this will be the last class offered at the great price of $150! Sign up with a friend and you BOTH will get $10 off** YAY! Please email me if you have any questions. You can contact me HERE.

And just for fun, here are a few of my favorite photos taken on my "family explore day" on New Years Eve! Lets start taking beautiful photos together!!!

Can you believe that the holidays are actually already here????? Who is ready for some turkey!?! I know I am!! And gravy, and mashed potatoes and PUMPKIN PIE!!!

But when Thanksgiving comes that also means Black Friday comes too! yahoo! I have some great deals coming this year (just like last year) And I will have them GO LIVE at 7a Friday morning (i wont make you get up earlier than that!)! LAST YEAR the top 4 deals sold within 4 mins! I couldn't believe it! And that was at 6a! SO SET YOUR CLOCKS OR REMINDER so you can get one of them! 

I will post on this (NEW) blog (i know, i have a million but my two sides collide blog doesnt allow me to post paypal buttons so i had to create this new one) and I will share it on FB as well with a link so you can find it easily!!!

HOWEVER... if you prefer to skip the black Friday alarm clock setting and hoping you get the good deal before someone else, then this deal below is for you! From now until friday night I will have available FIVE ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGES up for grabs! These are ONE HOUR SESSIONS UP TO 7 PEOPLE WITH ALL IMAGES INCLUDED! Thats HUNDREDS of dollars of savings! No more having to choose only 20 images! I had a few clients purchase these last year and they all told me how much they LOVED NOT HAVING TO NARROW DOWN THEIR IMAGE CHOICES! It is a fabulous deal and you can get it now (THERE ARE ALSO NO "BLACK OUT" days for booking them either! All the other Black Friday sessions will have some small form of scheduling restrictions- NOT THESE! Any open date they are good for for all of 2017!)
