I love to give back to my community. I donate a number of sessions each year and often do giveaways to celebrate the support I receive. I was super happy to reach 2K followers on Instagram. Now I know that is small potatoes for some photographers, but I celebrate all milestones around here. ;) I put a call out and was thrilled when Syrina and her family won a session. Bonus is that she was pregnant with their third baby and wanted to have that time captured. 

We met on a summer evening that was sunny but chilly as Seattle summer evenings can be. Her kiddos were just getting over a cold so they were a bit more snuggly than usual but I was happy to capture that. I think it is so special to capture a family just before it is about to change. I also think it is very important to make mothers feel absolutely beautiful when their bodies are doing such great work, growing humans, selflessly giving up every fiber of their being. This little family was so much fun to be around and I really enjoyed capturing them. Enjoy!
