I'm pretty sure this was a joke about every kids' favorite planet in the solar system. #uranus

Hey you guys don’t forget that photo shoots are for grandpas too ❤️ Such a thoughtful birthday gift to this guy (surrounded by his 3 grown sons) organized by his daughter-in-law. I am pretty sure I have a lot I could learn from this man! So wonderful to see him be celebrated by his loved ones on a sunny winter day at the park.
Today was incredible 💕💕 forever inhome sessions for newborns💕💕 If you don’t know @jackiezurfluhphotography you need to! I have no words by her graciousness and see her and Austin’s love for their new little made my heart burst
During my sessions you'll hear me say this over and over 'aaannnnnd closer, yep, closer, even closer" - this family had no issues with those instructions! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #meganhooksphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #edmondsfamilyphotographer #nikond850 #clickinmoms #illuminateclasses #seattlenewbornphotographer #howiclick #cameramama #seattle #pnw #letthekids #seattlematernityphotographer #lifestylephotography #familyphotographer #dearphotographer #seattlebaby #meganhooks #edmonds #iamphotonative
I used to think studio lighting was ugly. I thought it looked harsh and fake... and I prided myself on being a natural light photographer. . But the problem is, natural light isn't always available , and I really struggled in low light situations. The truth is, limiting myself to shooting exclusively with natural light caused me a lot of unnecessary stress! . Now I know that it is absolutely possible to create soft, beautiful natural looking light with strobes and flash. And doing so is much easier than a lot of photographers think. . Knowing how to create my own light means that there is no situation I can't handle. . Beautiful window light? No problem.... I can handle that! No window light? Well.... now I'm at point where you can handle that too! . It feels great! . Want to learn? Follow the link in my profile for my FREE guide on creating your own "window light" and start making your own perfect light today! . . . . . #sandracoanphotography #richardphotolab #kodakprofessional #strobesandfilm #portra400 #kodakfilm #letthekidsfilm #familiesonfilm #filmisnotdead #newbornsonfilm #babiesonfilm #kidsonfilm #filmmama #thisfilmlife #fineartfilm #filmsupplyclub #filmcommunity #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlenewbornphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #seattlematernityphotographer #seattlematernityphotography #lightingwithfilm #ladybossworkshops #lightingcoaching #studiolighting #filmphotographer #analoguecollective
I so wish I had taken breastfeeding pictures when I was at that stage in my kiddos lives. I think it’s the one thing I would go back and capture if I could. Is there something you wished you had captured?
In what will feel like a blink she won’t have to kneel down to be eye to eye with her big girl! Watching families grow over the years is so darn bitter sweet. 🥰
It’s always fun to kick the kids out of the photo and see what faces we can get their parents to make! ❤️❤️🥰😍🤩
Who else is ready for sunny days and outdoor wine tasting adventures? This particular one ended in us finding a random tractor.
Who'd walk away from a perfectly captured family photo? The third kid, That's who! 😅 We all agree that our third kids are always anti-mainstream. 🤣 Thank God he came back for a good round of family bear hugs. ❤️❄️ . . #ohjoystudios Winter Wonderland family session is coming up February 2nd and February 17th at Snoqualmie Pass.

I'm going to be celebrating mamas with their babes all week to encourage you to get in the frame! Dad not too excited about family photos? Do something for yourself and book a mommy + me session! You'll always be their mama but they won't be little forever! . . . .#seattleareaphotography #seattlephotographer #mommyandme #getintheframe #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlenewbornphotographer #bellevuefamilyphotographer #kirklandfamilyphotographer #seattlematernityphotographer #EmilyAnnPhotography206 #momlife #motherhood #ilovelove
Anyone else get hit by a 24 hour flu?! Cuz, damn that hit me hard. I was barely conscious on the couch when my husband got home from work on Friday, and the kids had taken over the house. Whoops. Out for the count until Saturday night. But woah, did I have a ton of energy on Sunday... decluttering my Kondo-butt off... in my own way. So this is me today... peaking over my computer, catching up on some much needed work emails and editing. What are you up to?! . . . . #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlelifestylephotographer #seattlephotographer #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlenewbornsession #alecmillsphotography #yourmomentscaptured #seattleparents #thefamilynarrative #seattlefamilylife #inhomesessions #seattlefamilyphotography #seattlemomlife #seattlefamily #seattlematernityphotographer #seattlenewbornphotog #photographyisart #seattledads #edmondsfamilyphotographer #edmondsnewbornphotographer #familyphotographer #makeportraits #shorelinematernityphotographer #seattlenewborn #seattlelifestyle #seattlemoms #seattlebabyphotographer #bainbridgeislandphotographer #
“It is a happy talent, to know how to play.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." ~ Martin Luther King Jr.⠀ ⠀ We've had a lot of family in from out of town this weekend and I'm looking forward to the extra day off and more time spent with cousins, aunts & uncles. It's amazing to me how connected and at ease we all are with each other even though we only get together occasionally. My kids are most looking forward to the extra day for screen-time. I try to make it a point to discuss with the reason for whatever holiday we're observing with them to help them understand why we have the luxury of extra time. Especially days like today, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. How are you spending today? Hope you're enjoying the holiday with your family! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #kelliepecorarophotography#seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography#seattlelifestylephotographer#seattlelifestylephotography#seattleinhomephotographer#seattleinhomephotography #seattleinhomephotosession#seattleindoorfamilyphotography#seattleindoorfamilyphotographer #inbeautyandchaos #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged#seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlenewbornphotography#seattleschoolphotographer#seattlefineartschoolphotos #seattlemodernschoolphotos#letthekids #inbeautyandchaos #candidchildhood #ladybossworkshops#seattlekidphotographer #seattlechildphotographer#ladyboss #clickinmoms #holiday #martinlutherkingjr
Telling my clients stories is such an incredible honor 😍
In a recent post, @coffeecupphotographybymagda said “What will I remember about today?”. I love this question. It forces you to think about what is most important. Will I remember that he only wanted me to shoot hoops because even when I hold him up the hoop’s too high. Will I remember how rosie red his cheeks got? Will I remember that I slept on the floor next to his bed from 2AM on even though he fell back asleep? I hope I will remember the good parts, I hope he will remember the good parts. . . Photospeak: I love the look of film and even have my grandpa’s old film camera but it’s not in use. I"ll get there. I was inspired by @jacob_loafman to create light leaks in lightroom-it’s the rainbowish colors on the right.

Sunrises are my fav 🤗✨🌄
This is my best friend & her adorable girls. Long story short... We met at a moms group... At a park play date. In the rain. And nobody else showed up. But us. Our kids played in the rain. And we’ve been friends since. She is my person. *** Who’s your person? Your best girl who has seen you at your worst and inspires you to be at your best? *** The girlfriend who can come over unannounced and you don’t feel the need to clean up or get out of pjs? *** The friend who helps us get out of the trenches and help us laugh at ourselves. *** The friend that just gets us. #friendship
I’ve decided to take weekends off from posting on insta. This started as me forgetting to post last weekend and then seeing how I would feel not posting again this weekend. Social media is fantastic as a marketing tool, but there’s a distinct feeling of being chained to it: must post, must produce content, must comment back right away, must beat the algorithm. And keeping up with that 365 days a year is just not something I can do right now. In the constant struggle to gain visibility, there’s little room for boundaries, but you have to set them somewhere. So when you don’t see new posts from me on the weekends, now you’ll know why.
Happy Monday ☀️
Self love is a curious thing....especially for women. ESPECIALLY for mothers. This is a photo of me, in a bathing suit, on a beach in the Bahamas, acting all confident with my curvy self. But I assure you, it's a journey for sure. I have ALL the insecurities about all the things you do. Promise. My body has changed... it grew three humans and when you are 5'2, let me tell you, that takes a toll on you. ;) I am teeny, but like I said, curvy. And curvy comes with all kinds self judgement. Just saying. But every day I try to my best to love my body and not look down on my imperfections. I try to show up here on the gram regularly because I want to practice what I preach. I take photos of all my mothers alone at every shoot, even if they are nervous about it. Why? Because I believe that our children need to see US. I believe our little girls, they are listening and watching and they need to see us be confident in our curves and our imperfections. I believe that women are under appreciated and they should be celebrated as they are and for the goddesses they are. So here I am, trying to love myself a little more each day and to be thankful for this body that has taken me so very far. . . . . . . #elenasblairphotography #seattlefashionblogger #seattlephotographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlematernityphotographer #travelphotography #travelblogger #jetsetting #justfly #lookslikefilm #clickmagzine #momazine #beunraveled #MyCanonStory #honestlydocumented #shootproofme #creativelive #risingtidesociety #makewavesmonday #rawbeautytalks #contentcreator #everygirl #clickpro #communityovercompetition #real #beauty #bakersbay
Newborn parents often ask if I can get a photo or two or the baby with his/her eyes open. My response is always the same "we'll see". . When I'm working with a newborn, I let them lead the show! If they want to sleep, I let them sleep. If then want to be awake and happy, I let them be awake. If they need some time to have a meal (or two)... we take the time to do that. . That is what Baby Led Posing is all about! Not only do I use safe, natural poses, I let the baby guide us through the entire session. And I wouldn't have it any other way! . This little baby decided to give me the hard stare near the end of the session.... 😂 I love working with newborns! They are so full of personality!! . . . . . #sandracoanphotography #richardphotolab #kodakprofessional #strobesandfilm #portra800 #kodakfilm #letthekidsfilm #familiesonfilm #filmisnotdead #newbornsonfilm #babiesonfilm #kidsonfilm #filmmama #thisfilmlife #fineartfilm #filmsupplyclub #filmcommunity #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlenewbornphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #seattlematernityphotographer #seattlematernityphotography #lightingwithfilm #ladybossworkshops #lightingcoaching #studiolighting #filmphotographer kodakprofessional protousa
I like to treat the all of January as my New Year planning month. This is the time that I set my goals for the year and then plan out how I'm going to reach them. . One of my big goals for the year is to continue to grow my studio lighting knowledge and share what I learn with all of you! . What are your goals for 2019? I've love to know! . . . . . #sandracoanphotography #richardphotolab #kodakprofessional #strobesandfilm #portra400 #kodakfilm #letthekidsfilm #familiesonfilm #filmisnotdead #newbornsonfilm #babiesonfilm #kidsonfilm #filmmama #thisfilmlife #fineartfilm #filmsupplyclub #filmcommunity #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlenewbornphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #seattlematernityphotographer #seattlematernityphotography #lightingwithfilm #ladybossworkshops #lightingcoaching #studiolighting #filmphotographer
Over the weekend I spent some time Marie Kondoing and came upon of bin of baby clothes I'd saved from when my boys were newborn. . Finding the clothes reminded me that not so long ago they were tiny!! . Now they are both as tall as me! . Moral of this story.... children grow up really, really fast! . Don't miss it! . They're only little once! . . . . . #sandracoanphotography #richardphotolab #kodakprofessional #strobesandfilm #portra800 #kodakfilm #letthekidsfilm #familiesonfilm #filmisnotdead #newbornsonfilm #babiesonfilm #kidsonfilm #filmmama #thisfilmlife #fineartfilm #filmsupplyclub #filmcommunity #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlenewbornphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #seattlematernityphotographer #seattlematernityphotography #lightingwithfilm #ladybossworkshops #lightingcoaching #studiolighting #filmphotographer
There is no universal standard for color film. Each stock is a little different... which is one of the reason why I love working with film so much! . Last year I decided to dive into the world of the kodakprofessional film and spent the entire year shooting their film exclusively! It's was a lot of fun and I learned a ton (which I'll be sharing soon on the blog!) . This images was shot on #portra160 ... which is a stock that I knew very little about before last year. Now it's one of my favorites! . Are you a film or hybrid shooter? If so, do you have a favorite stock? What is it, and why is it your favorite? I'd love to know! . . . . . #sandracoanphotography #richardphotolab #kodakprofessional #strobesandfilm #kodakfilm #letthekidsfilm #familiesonfilm #filmisnotdead #newbornsonfilm #babiesonfilm #kidsonfilm #filmmama #thisfilmlife #fineartfilm #filmsupplyclub #filmcommunity #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlenewbornphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #seattlefamilyphotography #seattlematernityphotographer #seattlematernityphotography #lightingwithfilm #ladybossworkshops #lightingcoaching #studiolighting #filmphotographer
19|365 despite these triumphant faces (they literally did zero work), this is super sad for me. I loved this tree... but it did not love its location and was going downhill fast... 😕. Hopefully I love the deck that will replace it this spring just as much. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 #anniebellphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #familyphotography #clickinmoms #enchantedchildhood #momswithcameras #prettypresets #dear_photographer #magicofchildhood #momtogs #smdtogs #letthekids #pixel_kids #childrenofig #philadelphiaeagles #nfl #camera_mama #childhoodunplugged #thesincerestoryteller #shootandshare #candidchildhood #unitedinmotherhood #kidsforreal #ourcandidlife #parentinginthewild #canon_photos #wildandlittlebraves www.anniebellphotography.com
I love that her eyes are open and we get to see her sparkly little newborn eyes. She can’t see very far yet but you can tell she’s thinking and aware, especially if she can either hear or smell her mama close. She’s chill here and I’m sure mama was near. . . . #bigsister #treasuredmemories #seattlefamilyphotographer #lightinspired #pnwphotographer #thisisus #seattlelifestylephotographer #motherhood #fatherhood #familyphotography #silouette #naturallight #family #photograph #moments #memories #seattlenewbornphotographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #annamariephotollc #blackandwhitephotography #momentsoverposes #newborn #newbornphotography #lifestylephotography #canonmoments #clickinmoms #magicofchildhood #thelifestylecollective
I am so sad to hear that The Capitol Campus Conservatory is scheduled for demolition. I had high hopes that someday it would be restored to another green house. Such a beautiful piece of Olympia’s history.
One of my goals in a documentary family session is to capture everyone in one frame, each having an undirected moment. The Taylor family was so fun, energetic and affectionate. I had so much fun spending the day with them! The elevated 99 bridge in Seattle that is behind them is being torn down right now. . . . . . #seattledocumentaryphotographer #documentyourdays #documentaryphotography #bnw_captures #seattlefamilyphotographer #99bridge #letthekids #illuminatechildhood #artofchildhood #themindfullapproach #dearphotographer #fearlessandframed #thesincerestoryteller #dfpcommunity #candidcatches #theartofchildhood #shamoftheperfect #artofchildhood

“Forever protected, forever connected” -Amy Krouse Rosenthal, in her book Little Miss Big Sis . . . These twins are two of the sweetest kids I’ve gotten to photograph.  When I was growing up I always wanted to be a twin.  It’s such a special experience to have someone that couldn’t be more connected.  Someone who shares soooo much in life with you.  I have a big sister, not a twin, but she’s the one person who I can call and she’ll always get me.  I feel protected and connected to her and am incredibly grateful for that and I hope I can foster a similar bond in my two little nuts. #aneladeislerphotography #seattlefamilyphotographer #beunraveled #our52group #themindfulapproach #dearphotographer #rose_colored_childhood #hoto_19 #siblinghoodlove #youthunscripted #jj_its_kids #ig_motherhood #humansofjoy
