I don’t think we can properly express in words our excitement level when we both had confirmation that we would be having (separate) Blue Lily Photography sessions during our 2011 summer! We have literally dreamed about having our own flesh and blood photographed by such talent, and to see it come to fruition was so unbelievable.
As we both read and watched the photos of the Blue Lily world tour go by with each month, we were getting so excited, and only slightly nervous (only about our outfits & making sure our little babes were “happy”). Blue Lily is a husband and wife team that have a super-duper talent in capturing the best moments in photos. Both Andrea and I had the great fortune of having Wendy work with our families. To give you an idea of who Wendy is, it’s as if a long-lost friend just landed in Seattle and had an hour to spend with you. She is so warm, open, totally down-to-earth and living every second in the city she’s in.
To set the scene, Andrea and I had two completely opposite venues. Andrea & family were photographed at Discovery Park, on the west side of Seattle in a massive park that overlooks the beautiful Puget Sound waters. I (& family) had scheduled our shoot for the urban, gritty environment of Pike Place Market, filled with the raw color of the city.
I think the photos can speak for themselves…we both had so many wonderful shots to choose from but here are a few of our favorites!
Our little (or not so little anymore) babes!
Wendy wanted to make sure, from the get go that we were happy with what we were getting, not feeling rushed or frustrated by the environment, open to ideas that we may have had going into it but also willing to guide us, which was SO incredibly helpful.
Here’s one that I asked for…
One of Andrea’s favorites….look at those cute teeth!
What a beautiful family!
This one just cracks me up….Pip is such a little goof-ball!
When the photos pinged our inbox’s, I’m certain I had Andrea on the line faster than Sid (sorry honey)! We individually ohhhed and ahhhed at the beauty that Wendy created for our families and I personally find it hard to put into words how thankful I am that we have family pictures!
Check to see if Wendy & Tyler are headed your way…you won’t be sorry!
Thank you Wendy! We are so happy!
