family photos with seattle and portland photographer lulabell photography!

last month we snuck away for some family photos with one of our favorite photographers, lauren with lulabell photography. this was our first real deal, full blown, no kids crying because of the cold shoot, since stella was three months old! i'd be lying if i didn't say, "man, trying to get photos of this family of six was h-a-r-d!"

i was really worried as i waited for sneak peeks, that it would really show how naughty and rambunctious stella and rowan were being. then when they started showing up on facebook, it was love at first sight! true, you can see how uncooperative they were being in almost all of the photos but after a little pep talk with myself i thought, hey, this is our real life! lauren captured our day to day interactions perfectly, and hello, the girls weren't being naughty, they were being three and five at 7pm. i can't get over how yummy and delicious the lighting is in these photos! if you are talking family photos in the summer, magic hour is where it's at.

i love love working with lauren because she has a ton of style but is willing to work with my ideas and visions too and she lets me bring a van full of props! the wagon and sail idea? literally came to me hours before we left - you should have seen me and tim in the yard fastening this thing together in the blistering sun as we were loading all of the kids in the car. i am glad we did it though, because, hello!

if your local to the portland thru to seattle area, i highly recommend checking out lauren! as a mama of two herself she has perfected her ability to calm down sassy children while snapping the most perfect photos chasing them through a field.

other then lauren's photography website, you can also find lulabell photography on facebook and instagram!

i have even better news for you local (portland and seattle) friends! lauren is officially scheduling for her fall mini sessions. she is super excited to offer two carefully chosen locations, either one the perfect opportunity to snag an amazing christmas card photo.

the info: for $75 you get a twenty minute session with five edited photos available for digital download within a week. she is shooting in the pearl district of portland on october 12th and a tree farm in vancouver washington on october 19th.

email her at lauren@lulabellphotography.com to schedule yours today!
