Sneak Peek: Marita and crew {FAMILY}

I love photographing friends. LOVE it. I love seeing them, love capturing them and their families and the love they share.

Marita and I met last summer at camp, and ended up bunking together in the one RV with air conditioning…(can I just say, we got lucky because our week at camp was during the warmest weather Washington saw last summer!)…at camp Marita was 30-ish weeks pregnant with this adorable little guy, Tanner. I had just found out before camp that I was pregnant, so it was fun to have that connection with her.

I had a blast today photographing Marita, Shawn and Tanner. We lucked out and were able to take advantage a beautiful, sunny, crisp winter day.

How cute are they? Tanner is the most adorable little chunk!

He wasn’t so sure what he thought about having his picture taken, but we were diggin’ it!

Look at that little stinker, sticking his tongue out at me!

As laid back as he seems, today Tanner was a pretty serious little dude.

I would blow this up huge on my wall!

Mommy Love!

Daddy love!

Marita, thanks for trusting me with your family pictures! Hopefully this time the only tears are tears because you see the love your family shares!

    The picture’s are great, the picture’s of Tanner pouting looks just like his mother when she was that age,but I love them all.
    Grandpa misses them all and can’t wait to see them when Cooky and I return to Washington. Maybe we can get a picture of all of us then.
    Love ya
    Mike & Cooky

    They are beautiful pictures. The photographs show delightful imagination. Tanner show’s a lot of personality in his picture’s and he is very lucky to have a wonderful family.
    Can’t wait to see them this spring when Grandpa and I return home for the summer.

    I really liked the picture when Tanner is in the basket on the train tracks but luckily there was no train because Myka will freak out.

    I loved all the photos! The one of Tanner on the train tracks is AMAZING! But, as a mom I liked the first photo of the family. Full of love for the life they created. Mandi, great job capturing the moment.

    I love all these pictures, really like the one of Tanner in the basket, Tanner reminds me so much of Shawn when he was this age, thank you for the beautiful pictures, and memories too.
