The Giri Family- Lakewood Family Photography

I am so thankful that I get to photograph this family every year.  Last year their pictures were some of my favorite from the entire season and this year is even better!

These girls are SO sweet and they are super photogenic.  They get along so well and are always full of fun ideas for pictures.

I mean seriously!

Their eyes are so expressive.

And a big ol' family pile up on a blanket?  I have tried this with other clients in the past and it just didn't work out right.  But this time....they nailed it!

Can you see where the girls get their good looks?


We had a great time wandering around the park and finding spots to do pictures.

Thanks for allowing me to document your family every year!  I love hanging out with you and your adorable girls.

Jana- Littleton Senior Pictures

Another early morning senior session, yes please!  I am loving these girls who are willing get up early for some beautiful morning light.

Good thing that Jana's passion is coffee.  It ensured that she was well caffeinated for our session and of course we had to get some pictures with her favorite beverage!

 She had also returned from a mission trip in Poland with her youth group just a few days before we did pictures.  You can't even tell that she has jet lag.  Perhaps it was the coffee!

I was lucky enough to take Jana's sister's pictures last summer.  Now Allison is off to college and it is Jana's year to shine!

This young woman is not only beautiful but she is a REALLY smart cookie.  She is taking 4 AP classes and is a self proclaimed English Nerd.  Smart and beautiful.  Great combination.

When she finishes high school at D'Evelyn she wants to go to University of Washington to be a doctor.  How cool is that?!  I think she looks like a doctor.  Paging Dr. Frantz.

We had such a good time exploring Morrison.  It is such a cute little town and because we were there early in the morning, we didn't have anyone in the background of our pictures.  Perfect!

Jana, I hope you have an amazing senior year!  And best of luck on your bright future.

Lindsey Family- Littleton Family Photography

I can't believe a year has already passed since I photographed this sweet family.  I was lucky enough to do maternity and newborn pictures last summer.   And just like that....little Mallory is a year old.
Isn't this little lady bug adorable?  I love all of the teeth!  I also love how you can get such cute, customized outfits these days.

She came down with a little cold the night before our session, but that didn't stop her from being a happy, smiling little girl.  I love that they brought this little rocking chair that has been in the family for many years.  How special to have a little piece of history in the pictures.  I love that!

Her little tongue out was out in a bunch of pictures.  Adorable. 

 This is Big Brother Grant.  He is so vocal and quite funny.  He is also very focused.  He LOVED my keys and it was hard to wrangle the keys away from him once he discovered how cool they are!  I have a Lego Rock Monster key chain and he thought it was the best thing ever.  If you look closely, you might be able to see the rock monster in some of the pictures.  Whatever makes them smile, right?

A one year old and almost 3 year old are not usually the easiest to photograph, but these two were very good and we got some great shots.

Candids and Black and Whites?  Yes Please!


In case you are most of a color picture and posed person, these are for you.


Don't you love the way kids learn to walk?  They are so cute and wobbly and then they unexpectedly thump to the ground on their butt.  Good thing they have padding back there.

After taking a year off, Emily is back to working teaching.  Good luck with the new school year!  I am sure you will miss these little cuties but I am sure your students are glad to have you back (until you start giving them homework).

What a cute family!  Love them!
