Classic. Clean. Timeless.
Images that stand the test of time.
I believe babies and children are perfect, just the way they are. That is why I keep things simple.
Natural (and safe) posing for newborns and babies.
Fun and timeless images for older kids and families.
No gimmicks, props or photoshoping. Just beauty, love and joy.
What my clients are saying…
“The maternity photos you took for me are just stunning. In them, I recognize the most beautiful version of myself and my hopes for my new baby.”
“Sandra – thank you SO MUCH for these pics! I don’t know how you got so many good shots out of this session with my shy little monkey… but that’s just one of the many reasons why you’re so good. They are wonderful!!! I love love love working with you!”
“To all you Seattle mommies & daddies – Sandra is amazing at what she does. She clearly loves and understands babies. Her gentle touch and soothing voice work magic with the little ones. Our 8 day old granddaughter sailed through a 2 hr photo shoot without a moment of distress. Kudos to her and her work. She comes highly recommended from this grandmother!”
“I just got the album link email and Oh my God, Oh my God. Sandra, they’re so beautiful. I couldn’t pick a fave if I tried. Thank you so much!!”
“Love, love, love the photos this year. You totally captured our sweet, crazy girls. Jamie and I have watched the slideshow a couple times now and go from “oh, how cute” to tears running down our face laughter. Thanks so much!”
“Holy CATS, Sandra! Is that Lauren? My daughter? OMGoodness, she’s beautiful. You are a genius with the camera, getting such fantastic images and coaxing just the right movement to evoke a mood on film. I’m blown away. Really.”
