We met just a little over two years ago via skype – within minutes of “meeting” we were laughing and I knew they would forever be in my world – I mean, they’re just TOO awesome to let a little thing like 2,000 miles between us keep us apart! HA!  Kellen & Jenica got married in July of 2014 and WHAT-A-PARTY! Omg. There are things I can never forget even if I tried and our day after portrait session in West Seattle?!?  STILL LAUGHING!!! These two are the BEST – so when I heard they were making a tiny human, I HAD TO MEET HIM!  So, around Grayson’s 10 month birthday we all met in Portland, we drank mimosas, played in the park and I’m pretty sure my face still hurts from all of the hysterical laughter!  Oh man – there were a lot more snot bubbles and street people involved in this shoot, I can’t wait to see what the next one holds for us.  I’m thinking east coast – obvs!

Two weeks ago we flew to California to photograph one of the sparkliest, loveliest, fanciest families I know – the Fayette Family!  I can’t even begin to tell you how great the trip was and how fun it was to see Ed & Danielle being the most adoring loving parents to their new little Stella Francis who is now just four months old. ADORABLE!   It’s more fun to see it in photos, so here are a few of my favorite shots from the weekend :

We flew in JUST in time to watch the Seahawks win! 

Just checkin in on some game stats, it was important!  :0) 

This is a BLIMP hangar!! SO freakout cool!!  (SO much bigger in person!)

Day two we headed down to Santa Cruz to the boardwalk for lunch and shenanigans. 

If you were ever wondering if Stella was REALLY Danielle’s baby, this is 100% proof.  She is already in love with champagne!! ha! 

Hans came down to join in on the fun and family photos – photo above left by Chris, photo above right by Danielle.  :-) Love you guys!! 

Hahaha!  We tried three separate times the next morning to get this perfect smiley confetti photo – we tried different poses, laughs, dancing, naps, meal breaks, another nap…. nothing. I mean, WE laughed a lot – Stella was all, “Weird guys, weird” and Chris was the NICEST to throw the confetti, clean it up, throw it again and again and again and again.

Tis the season, engagement season!! That’s right – proposals, engagements, parties & open houses galore!  Last night Ravishing Radish, along with Lavish Bar, July Floral Design, Bamboo Beats, Baked Custom Cakes, Paper Fling and of course, Barbie Hull Photography were all showcased at the gorgeous Axis Pioneer Square Venue.  The food was amazing, the drinks were flowing, the ambiance was perfect and we met SO many brides & grooms that are now planning their 2017 weddings.  The night couldn’t have been more fun… although we all agreed, we wanted more time to talk which means, we will hopefully all be gathering together again soon!   If you missed the festivities, here are a few photos to give you an idea of what was like.

Yesterday was the STORMIEST day in Seattle, the best way to end the day was with a glass of bubbly and some great company at the Perfectly Posh Events cocktail party in Ballard!  These ladies really know how to put an event together, from the gold sequin linens by AA Rentals all topped with gorgeous florals from Flora Nova, delicious mini cupcake treats from Baked and a whole table full of the most amazing cheeses and meats from Ravishing Radish – yuuum! I’m drooling now!  Oh – and we can’t have a fabulous party without great music – the handsome Harold Belskus who had his guitar out entertaining everyone and some great new recordings on his CD that was available to all of the guests!

Thanks again for the great party ladies!!

Last Sunday was TOO much fun!! The crazy Ellison crew (my best pals!) and I got in the car looking for a snowy adventure.  It took us a couple of hours – but we found some!!  Pete, Becca, Linc & Scarlett braved the cold so we could get some snowy family portraits.  We ate the snow, sang the songs, did a little sledding a LOT of falling, a little crying and so much laughing – my face STILL hurts!  Here are a few of my FAVS from our shoot – and thanks again to Pete for driving home so the rest of us could sleep!  What a guy!
