Ever heard the expression, he or she is "in the weeds" ? I've only heard it used for a mom with young kids. It's like... oh yeah, she is so busy tending the needs of her kids and house, you can expect a crazy range of emotions and the basic level of survival....but not much else from her..."she's in the weeds" This photo is totally hysterical to me..(if I don't laugh then I might cry)....its how I feel right now...completely discheveled with a black crow over my shoulder as an omen and totally IN THE WEEDS...... . . . . . #documentyourdays #documentaryphotography #letthekids #seattlefamilyphotographer #shotwithlove #my_magical_moments #candidchildhood #candidcatches #theartofchildhood #throughamotherseyes #shamoftheperfect #documentaryfamilyphotogs #childhoodunplugged #lifewithkids
“If we think of everything we have to do, we feel overwhelmed. If we do the one thing we need to do, we make progress.” - Simon Sinek. I needed this today! There are so many things going on and not enough time that I’m feeling overwhelmed and stuck. Like I’m spinning my wheels. So I’ll prioritize and cross one thing off my list today. If I get more done, we’ll then that’s a bonus. Double tap if you’re with me! #film #lumopro #flash #richardphotolab
The PNW... is one magical place... . . . @sarahorrocks how has it been FOREVER since this picture was taken?!?

when i was little, my dad used to braid my hair every night before bed. whenever i photograph families, i look for these kind of interactions between dads and daughters these kind of moments are the ones you carry with you into adulthood.
I’m a slightly nerdy, kind of intense, super passionate photographer and over the past four years, I have had the pleasure of working with clients from all over Washington state and beyond who have become friends, introduced me to new things (like Swell mugs...OMG. Life changing) Of course I love that my clients keep me in business. I love that they recommend me to their friends and families, but what I love the very most about them is that they consistently broaden my horizons and entrust me to do what I love. Cheers to my clients, both present and future...hope you’re one of them soon!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * #seabrook #seabrookwa #pnwmama #seattlemom #seattlefamily #seattlefamilyphotographer #pnwphotographer #olympiaphotographer #olympiafamilyphotographer #graysharborliving #graysharborphotographer #pnwcoast #upperleftusa #pnwcollective #clickmagazine #clickinmom #mamahood #motherhoodrising #thatsdarling #motherhoodunplugged #dearphotographer #dearphotographermag #mamalife #seabrookphotographer #coastallife
I want to share a story. I was explaining to a loving family member about my educational offerings. He said "but you are training your competition. Eventually there won't be more photographers to educate." Whats funny is this comment made my chest tighten up a bit. Fear seeped in. Even just that small comment shook me a bit and made me question my truth. Words are powerful. But I quickly took a deep breath, got off the defensive and simply said this.... "I believe in abundance. I believe the more I share the more I can change the world. I don't believe in scarcity and I know there is plenty of business for all of us." It is interesting how the go to mindset is often scarcity. You have knowledge to share. You have more experience than some. You can bring value. Pay it forward. Give back to this thriving community of photographers. I promise, the benefits are abundant. This photo is me at a family shoot. My friend @mcintoshart came along to observe me working and snapped this. She is very talented. <3 Abundance. Abundance. . . . . . . . @holdfastgear @nordstrom @huffpostwomen #elenasblairphotography #abundance #seattlephotographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlenewbornphotographer #adorama #seattlematernityphotographer #travelphotography #travelblogger #jetsetting #justfly #lookslikefilm #clickmagzine #momazine #beunraveled #MyCanonStory #honestlydocumented #shootproofme #creativelive #risingtidesociety #makewavesmonday #rawbeautytalks #contentcreator #everygirl #clickpro #communityovercompetition
Mini session details went out to email subscribers this morning, and we’re down to the last two spots! Link temporarily in profile. 🏃‍♀️
The baby takes the main stage a lot but this beauty is my first and she is such a good human. Only good things to come with this child. Took this at a concert on my old trusty Canon AE-1. 📷
❗️ SAVE THE DATE ❗️This year's fall mini sessions will be held on Sunday, October 7 + Saturday, October 13. Details to come!
I broke down today . I think of myself as a positive person. I am resilient and stubborn. Once I want something, I don’t stop until I achieve what I set my mind to . Infertility is a mind fuck. Because no matter what I do... I can’t achieve my goal . That makes me angry That makes me sad That makes me frustrated That makes me jealous That makes me bitter That has changed me over the last three years . I am a different woman. It will forever be a part of my life story. Even when we overcome it . I cry a lot. Alone. In the car. Almost daily. But then I pick myself up and tell myself that it’s all going to be Ok. I wasn’t raised to be a quitter . @msrachelhollis has a quote that stuck with me as I walk the infertility path. “ maybe I was given this mountain to show others it can be moved” . Baby Kruse, one day I will hold you in my arms and life will be perfect. Until then your mommy will fight for you. Until you’re here. Until you’re in my arms and I can show you just how loved you are . . . . . #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ttc #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #movingmountains #shareyourstory #seattlefamilyphotographer #snohomishfamilyphotographer #journeytomotherhood #oneday #infertilitycommunity #infertilitywarrior #infertilityhurts #babydreaming #1in8 #ivfstrong #worththewait #nevergiveup #strongbeyondmeasure

Not from a session but just a photo of my little love! I guess this could count as a #fridayintroduction This is one third of my little family. Seb lights up our lives everyday with his joyful smiles! He's our little December rainbow baby and John and I feel the impact of his blessing every minute. It's such a privilege and adventure to be his parents! "You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them...In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night...You - only you - will have stars that can laugh." . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #autumnandirisphoto #autumnandiris #washingtonstatephotographer #tacomafamily #tacomafamilyphotographer #tacomafamilyphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #puyallupfamilyphotographer #puyallupfamilyphotography #seattlephotographer #tacomaphotographer #familysession #thesincerestoryteller #oureverydaymoments #letthemexplore #childrenseemagic #thisismycommunity #motherhoodalive #pnwphotographer
Newborns are so magical. They are absolutely perfect just the way they are. In my opinion there is no need to mold them or pose them in unnatural positions. Why mess with nature? . . . . . . . #elenasblairphotography #newbornphotographer #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #newbornbaby #makeportraits #lookslikefilm #newborn #motherhood #teamcanon #adorama #creativelive #baby #lifestylephotographer #clickmagazine #dearphotographer #dpmagfavs #babyphotos #dearestviewfinder #shootproofme #huffpost #MyCanonStory

This tiny human can't be any cuter! #jaelykkenphoto
I love when grandparents are included in the shoot. And could they be any cuter?! _ _ _ #seattlephotographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #familyphotos #lovebirds #grandparents #familyphotoshoot
Let the light shine on you darling girl. Let yourself shine and don’t let anyone put you in the shadows. Step into it, enjoy it, don’t apologize for it. Raising strong women has always been a theme in my family, my grandmother was an Olympic ski racer, downhill at 70 she won the senior Olympics, yup that’s right my gram was a pioneer for women of her decade, a real independent woman. My mother is the strongest I know, she raised twins along with a toddler (um superhero), she was at every game, supported & loved us children unconditionally, and has always been a rock in my life. She is a beautiful sole, never tempted or swayed, she’s an artist and an academic, and one of the most caring people I know. This image just struck me as so beautiful, it’s so much more than just a pretty picture. This big sis to twin boys, she is already such a strong patient and beautiful lil girl. @twinmama_ashley working on your Gallery now. . . . #light #letthelightshine #raisinggirls #raisingwomen #spotlight #girls #strength #momlife #thoughts #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #beauty #magichour #clickinmoms #editing #photography #photoshoot #photographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlelifestylephotographer #seattlephotographer #annamariephotollc #magicofchildhood
The Workshop x Meetup happened this previous Sunday and it went just the way I wanted💛 TBH I was suddenly super nervous but #alhamdullilah it was amazing and I'm so humbled😘 .⠀ It has been my dream all of last year, to do something like this.. A session to teach the basics of using your DSLR but also to inspire, share why I believe photos have so much power and how they can help us find meaning in our lives. We talked about what photos have meant to us and how my sister, @waliyanajib & I found a way to heal through photography in the hardest of days. ⠀ ⠀ The workshop went better than I had planned, not just because of my support system (big thanks to my mom @shireengheba for her studio space & my sister @waliyanajib for all kinds of help incl taking these photos) but also because of the AMAZING people who made it, shared their own personal journeys and stories and gave back so much love♥️⠀ ⠀ Thank you Islamabad for the loving response, inshAllah will be back another time! Special thanks to @revelations.events for helping out with decor and @1o3bakershouse for the yummy treats. . ⠀ .⠀ #seattlefamilyphotographer #washingtonphotographer #issaquahphotographer #bellevuephotographer #redmondphotographer #kirklandphotographer #nataliyakhanphotography #nkpworkshop#pakistaniphotographer #anotherpakistan #pakistanimom #pakistanibloggers #pakistandiaries #bahawalpur #picturepakistan #humansofpakistan #dawndotcom #ig_pakistan #islamabad #photographyworkshop
This cutie was all smiles during our sunset session. Even though I hate the smoke in Seattle right now, it sure does make for some good evening light. ⠀ #kierstenmariefamily

Hi, hello there! I am Morgan, the face behind this account. This is me sitting in a field with my 2nd little girl in my belly feeling awkward. I am not a huge fan of being in front of the camera -sometimes it is fun sometimes I sweat a lot. I am so grateful to be able to create life. To be quite honest towards the final weeks, I am SO done. I have officially reached that point. I am uncomfortable, tired, emotional wondering when she will arrive. Anyone else been through these final stages that feel like years?
Happy birthday to this little lady who turns 1 today!
You know that feeling when you’re so busy working that you don't have time to think, eat, use the bathroom, or feel tired? And then that feeling right after when you throw on your sweatpants, pour a glass of wine, and plop down on the couch and can finally breathe? THAT’s the feeling you give me. That warm. THAT fuzzy. I love you guys more than coffee. Seriously. Thank you for being here. * * * #seabrook #seabrookwa #pnwmama #seattlemom #seattlefamily #seattlefamilyphotographer #pnwphotographer #olympiaphotographer #olympiafamilyphotographer #graysharborliving #graysharborphotographer #pnwcoast #upperleftusa #pnwcollective #clickmagazine #clickinmom #mamahood #motherhoodrising #thatsdarling #motherhoodunplugged #dearphotographer #dearphotographermag #mamalife #seabrookphotographer #coastallife
My first baby was a sweet boy, but you had to work a little to get a smile. He was (and still is) a watcher, he made sure you were worthy of a smile. My daughter, on the other hand, was so generous with her smiles, always smiling. 😊 How about your kids? Did they give smiles easily or were they more reserved? 😊 #ClickPro #ClickinMoms #Snoqualmiefamilyphotographer #familyphotography #pnw #Snoqualmie #Issaquahfamilyphotograper #Seattlefamilyphotographer #siblinghoodlove #ourcandidlife #family #neyssaleephotography #thesincerestoryteller #dearphotographer #snapmaven #thebloomforum #hellostoryteller #enjoy_today01 #thefamilycollective #pnwkids #ladybossworkshops #lookslikefilm #seattle #motherhoodrising #canonusa
When I am driving around town I am always looking for interesting backdrops. This lovely pod was only in my neighborhood for three days. Just long enough for Jack to jump in front of it during his senior session. Love those stripes! .................... #seattleseniorphotography #seattleseniorphotographer #seniorphotos #seniorphotography #seniorphotographer #classof2018 #seniorpics #senior #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #seattleportraitphotographer #pnwphotographer
Oh my! I just looked at my calendar and gasped! It’s packed and then I realized how soon my sweet Alder moon is going back to school and I felt dread then got the sudden urge to take the last few free days and run away to the ocean. So we’re going! But to where!? And who’s coming with me!? Tell me all your favorite spots. I’m thinking tiny oceanside cottage where we can run wild! In other news if you want to get a photo session in before the weather turns let’s do it! Availability is scarce but if there is light we can make magic...after I run away for a few days of course 😊 #alderandarrow #wildandfree #alltheloveandmagic #takemeoutofthecity
Cue “You are my sunshine” ☀️ 🎶 #amandaorlemanphotography
I am all about a non traditional family portrait. A repost. (Original got deleted 😭)
Oh hey there baby!! 🙋🏻‍♀️♥️ . . . . Alllllll the cute family photos - up on the blog tonight ♥️
You all probably know by now how I feel about “everyone look at the camera and smile” photos. I get why families want them (I even wanted one for my own Christmas card), which is why I do start every session with a posed shot. However, these are the kind of photos that capture a child as they truly are - wild, and free, and beautiful. 🖤 . . . . . . . #lesliejenningsphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #pixel_kids #momswithcameras #momtog #mom_hub #clickinmoms #candidchildhood #runwildmychild #kidsforreal #realfamilies #unconventionaltogs #childofig #kids_of_the_lens
I need to start compiling my end-of-the-roll shots I take to finish a roll of film. They are always some of my favs.❤️❤️❤️
Found this self portrait I took in 2013 yesterday while hunting down something else. you guys... look at baby Fifi Magee. She’s going to be eight in three weeks. (She’s still photobombing and ruffling mama’s feathers like a boss, some things never change...) This is also a friendly reminder- get yourself in front of the camera. Don’t do self portraits? Call me, I’d love to document you and your family. . . . #selfportrait #selfportraitphotography #archives #focusinphotography #vanessasimpson #tacomaphotographer #tacomafamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #pnwphotographer #seattlephotographer #letthekids #shamoftheperfect #illuminatechildhood #makingsofmotherhood #southsoundfamilyphotographer #tacomadocumentaryphotographer #seattlepulse #viewfindersio #dearphotographer #ig_MotherHood #makingsofmotherhood
Raise you hand if you've been following the #ektachromebetatest that I've been participating in? . For those of you who haven't been, let me fill you in.... @kodakprofessional is re-releasing Ektachrome, and I'm one of the lucky photographers who was asked to beta test it #hugehonor . Well... I've sent my first rolls off to @richardphotolab and got a sneak peek of the processed film today! (You can see it in my stories).... and I can already tell, I'm going to LOVE this stock!! . I should have scans back soon, and as soon as I do, I'll share! . Until then, please enjoy this adorable little toy mouse that one of my tiny clients brought in. It was photographed on #portra400 using a @profotousa B2 strobe. . . . . . . #sandracoanphotography #richardphotolab #kodakprofessional #filmisnotdead #filmphotography #filmcommunity #filmmama #lbfilm #letthekidsfilm . #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlematernityphotographer #letthekidsfilm #cmpro #bellelumieremagazine #clickmagazine #familiesonfilm #filmandstrobes #seattlenewbornphotography #seattlematernityphotography #lookslikefilm #clickinmoms #filmsupplyclub #ladybossworkshops #strobesandfilm #simplyposed
