I was giddy when I learned I was going to be able to work with one of my favorite Seattle families. One of the reasons I love Betsey is that she was among the first people to welcome us into Seattle with open arms. We have worked together several times, and it’s always a lovely, rewarding and fun experience. Betsey has her own small business, Ellie Bluebell Designs. She crafts sassy and clever cards. But her talents don’t stop there: she also has a line of “Smells” and a Rosemary Salt that both my husband Ryan (who helped on this session) and I use on a daily basis. Her cute online shop has all of them!
And there is baby N. She’s a precious, smart and adorable little girl, whom I have been photographing since she was a newborn. It’s amazing to see her grown up so fast, and I’m proud to say I’ve documented part of that process. She is one of my favorite Seattle subjects: just take a look at her beautiful face and her expressions in these photos. You see what I am talking about?
These are just a few photos of a great series with The Shermans, at Seattle’s beloved Golden Gardens Park. I am a fortunate photographer because I get to have wonderful people in front of my lense who are dear friends, and we get the most breathtaking—and sometimes quirky—outdoors to make images like these happen.
It’s magic! Enjoy!
