Gracen - 6 Month Milestone Session

For this growing baby session, little Miss Gracen was turning 6 months old and was ready for her milestone moment. The sitting up milestone is a time I always love to capture, and man was she an expert already! So strong! I have a feeling this little lady might be walking the next time I see her. Ha!

Check out some of the amazing images we captured in this Growing Baby 6 month session.



If you’d like to schedule a 6 Month Milestone Session, I’d love to hear from you. Please, get in touch! And if you’re in Washington, and want to to schedule a tulip field session, let me know that too! I visit Skagit Valley often and love to schedule sessions during tulip season!


Molly & Stephen :: A Day to Remember


Molly & Stephen had the sweetest, intimate wedding ceremony on the Seattle Waterfront by Pier 56! The vows took place on Saturday with only 16 of their closest family members in attendance including Stephen’s father. Molly wore the most simple, elegant white dress with a spring bouquet in tow.  The ceremony took place overlooking the water and afterwards, everyone enjoyed some fun at Elliot’s Cafe. After a week of Seattle rain we were lucky to get some lovely sunlight. We had the most perfect sunset which made for some gorgeous newlywed pictures on the dock! Everything came together perfectly and these two will continue the celebration next week with a honeymoon in Mexico!  

Friends are made, dreams are uncovered, and every single email, card and testimonial I receive lets me know that I am truly being of service – it’s the most fulfilling and rewarding work I’ve ever done! I was left with a little testimonial from the happy bride:

“Shaylee was perfect for what we needed. My husband and I came into Seattle from KC for a small, intimate wedding. We were looking for someone to capture photos of us and our families, and Shaylee was great to work with. She answered all of my questions ahead of time, offered props, and got our pictures to us very quickly. She was also very accommodating as far as our preference in editing styles! We are especially grateful that she was able to work some photoshop magic to create a particular family grouping we had neglected to shoot. Thank you, Shaylee!”

 I capture people, because I like to freeze passionate moments in time. Your moments of passion, and of plain ol' love, are what makes the world go 'round ... at least in my humble opinion.  It's those tiny moments you'll want to save and tell your grandkids about or even just reminisce about 20 years from now. Congrats again, Molly and Stephen! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Maternity Session 12/10




What a brave mama Erin is! She was such a trooper outside in the snow in order to capture her maternity portraits. I told her I had a vision of what I wanted to create….and I’m so glad she 100% trusted me to go along with all my crazy ideas! I’m so happy we even got to capture a couple with the snow on the ground ♥ ☃ She is an absolutely stunning mama-to-be, and I can’t wait to meet her precious little one when we take sibling photos! 


Expecting couples are so much fun to photograph! ☺️ I love maternity sessions & capturing the waiting, expectancy, and excitement of #moms and #dadstobe! 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
