Dan got my D700 for Christmas, along with some cool bells and whistles (like a brand new 50mm 1.4 lens), so she was anxious to finally get out for some hands on practice. 

Unlike me, portraiture isn't her jam, so while she focused on old architecture and nature, I focused on her!  She even let me talk her into putting her gear down for a few shots...what a sweetie :)

I had such a blast with the senior sessions last year and can't wait to get the Class of 2019 in front of my camera!! 

This locale would be amazing for a senior boy, or an edgy senior girl!

I love looking at candids like this showing photogs at work.  In the moment, your focus is everywhere EXCEPT yourself...you have no idea what you look like. 

Those facial expressions though!!  Hahaha...laser beam focus baby :P

Office Update and Jarvis Standing Desk Review http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2018/1/office-update I'm so thankful for the work that came my way in 2017! 

Because of it, I was finally able to update my workspace and add some things that will help me to work more ergonomically...like my new Fully standing desk, which I LOVE!!  I had been doing my research for months and based on their wicked good ratings, settled on the Jarvis by Fully.

The Jarvis is customizable with a variety of configurations and materials options, even reclaimed wood.  In the end, I went with an extended range black frame (I'm a tall drink of water!), and the bamboo 60" x 30" rectangular top with the programmable memory option.  I love the adjustable presets which allow me to easily and quickly modify my desk's height to my most comfortable settings.  The rising and lowering action is SMOOOOTH.  I'm intentional about treating my things nicely (especially when they're an investment), and unlike some other desks I researched, my Jarvis is stable and steady no matter what position it's in...for how I use it.  I will say that due to the nature of the frame, if you're hard on your furniture, you probably won't be happy with a standing desk. 

After watching a few Youtube videos I also went with the standard size Topo Mat, and I'm glad I did!  It was an impulse buy, but I love how I'm able to use it to stretch my legs while I'm using the desk in standing mode.  It even has a raised ball area in the middle that's great for giving your feet a quick massage :).  With all the hours I spend in front of my monitor, this desk will help my back so much, and all the stretching is an added bonus.

One final bit of input - this desk was SUPER easy to assemble and hubby had it up and ready in about 30 minutes!

Here are a couple quick snaps...don't judge on the messy cables!  Cable management is on the seemingly never-ending 'To Do' list.

Bamboo top

Here's that Topo mat...

Fully Standard Topo Mat in blackI put camera on to give an idea of scale Standing on the back ridge helps you stretch your calves Foot Massage! :)

Organization was next on my wish list and I spent months trying to find the perfect bookshelves for my small space.  Wayfair, Pottery Barn, Overstock, you name it, I googled it - but no luck.  Finally, I tried an unfinished furniture store in Issaquah and found a couple pieces that fit.  The owner, Frank, was a pleasure to work with and so helpful.  I have one more piece to order in the future...a new filing cabinet to match the second bookcase.  In the end, I'm happy I was able to support a local business :)

Like my rock salt lamp? I'll be getting the filing cabinet to match this piece...can't recommend Frank enough!

Finally, a few little special touches to really make the space mine.  Have you seen Chip and Joanna Gaines' new Home / Office decor line called Hearth and Hand?  It's exclusive to Target and it's stylish and QUALITY!  

Candle by Hearth and Hand With Magnolia I've got a thing about decorative doorstops Usually I don't like gold, but all the gold accents in my office started because of this piece I bought last year :) A nod to my Southern roots...pineapples are a symbol of hospitality Organizational basket by Hearth and Hand With Magnolia I've only had shears up to now, but it makes editing impossible when it's too bright. Should've bought these darker panels a long time ago! Gold tone accents from Target Boxes to hide things away - more Hearth and Hand With Magnolia

Small gold toned accent table from Tuesday Morning

Original artwork by baby daughter - Love it!!

I can't tell you how much I love this space now, and how much I'm looking forward to seeing what 2018 brings!

Woodinville Family Photography with Mesaros' http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/11/mesaros-family I'm so glad I had time to fit this quick little mini shoot in for the Mesaros family on Black Friday...infinitely more fun than shopping with the hordes at the mall :P

I did Chase's senior pics this past summer, but now he's rocking some cool blond hair to show spirit for his football team, the AMAZING Woodinville Falcons.  They just won their big game this past weekend and will be playing in the state finals next weekend - Go Falcons!! 

What a wonderful family, and such troopers to brave the drizzly PNW day!  So thankful to have had my trusty assistant on hand to hold the umbrella over me..

Senior Photography Bellevue - Grace at Bellevue Botanical Gardens http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/11/class-of-2018---grace What can I say?  These pictures speak for themselves...Grace's senior session was magical!  

The day was a gorgeous last hurrah of Fall sunshine and warm temperatures - Bellevue Botanical Gardens was crawling with other photographers and their clients. 

Grace lives up to her name and has such an elegant beauty in her images.

Upon graduation, her plans are finish up her AA at Bellevue College before heading off to a four year university.

My friend Amanda wanted one great image of their family of nine to get made into a canvas to hang in their home.  She did an AMAZING job of coordinating everyone's outfits didn't she? 

With four young ones, I knew we had to keep things quick and simple.  They did a great job staying in the moment. 

I love this family!! :)

Tacoma Senior Photography - Cameron at Fireman's Park http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/11/class-of-2018---cameron Cameron's shoot was down in T-town's Fireman's Park area.  Lots of little nooks and crannies of character there, and I was glad for another opportunity to explore it.

Cameron loves music and football.  He played on both his junior high and high school teams, but unfortunately had a knee injury which took him out of the sport competitively.  His love of sports will be carried on in another way though, as he plans on studying Sports Medicine after graduation.

I couldn't help but include a pic of his super adorable nephew who joined us for the shoot - what a cutie! :)

Bellevue Senior Photographer - Chase Downtown Bellevue http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/10/class-of-2018---chase Chase was such a sweet guy to work with!  We went for the urban vibe with his shoot in one of my favorite shooting spots downtown Bellevue.  

Chase plays JV/Varsity with the currently undefeated Woodinville Falcons football team as a wide receiver/corner back.  He is also an encyclopedia of football facts, statistics, and who’s who in football.  

Currently football is in the forefront since he has meetings, practices, workouts or games Monday - Saturday.  Another benefit from football is having a great physique.  Yes, he’s proud of his guns (and rightly so!!).  

Chase also sings with the high school chamber choir, and has a love for all things Frank Sinatra.  Since 5th Grade Chase has shown a love for history, and he plans to study history to become either a junior high/high school teacher.  He attributes his love for history from when he began reading a series in the 2nd grade called Story of the World (excellent series...we used it ourselves!), and he has benefited from being inspired from each of his history teachers.  

As far as college, his first choice is University of Montana, and possibly Central Washington University.  

Fun facts about Chase's shoot:

#1 He totally got photobombed by a gorgeous blonde

#2  I left my camera bag with my 85mm lens outside and completely forgot about it - eeek!  I'm too dependent on my trusty assistant to help me keep things together obviously!! :P

Congrats Chase - it was a pleasure to work with you and you're sure to go far!!

Seattle Senior Photography - Russ at Kerry Park http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/10/class-of-2018---russ Anyone who knows me well knows I've been DYING to get a face with freckles in front of my lens.  I LOVE freckles!!  I was so excited when we pulled up to Kerry Park and met Russ and his sister.  The setting was gorgeous, the light coorperative, the skyline view of Seattle matchless, and the freckles...sublime!

We actually had to reschedule our shoot due to all the smoke and haze we had in September, but the wait was worth it.  I'm so thankful to Russ's mom for introducing me to this location.  Honestly, when she mentioned it and I looked it up online...I was less than thrilled.  Remember the tiny park on Parks and Recreation?  This is Seattle's version of that.  I took a look at the pictures online and thought to myself, what am I going to shoot that's not skyline related??  Well, I've been schooled.  The neighborhood adjacent to the park is AMAZING - full of gorgeous old homes and mature tree-lined sidewalks...the kind you remember at your grandmother's house.  Suffice it say, this is a new big-time favorite location!

Russ's mom and sister got in on the fun and I'm so very pleased with the results.

By the way, Russ is graduating from Interlake this year and plays soccer :)

And now, for your viewing pleasure, one of my favorite shoots to date!

Bellevue Senior Portraits - Adrian at the Gardens http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/10/class-of-2018---adrian I've been getting a bit behind on my blogging...finally Adrian's shoot is going up.  One of his images is now on my website opening page, just look at those gorgeous green eyes!

We met up with Adrian at the botanical gardens in Bellevue, where I quickly learned of his passion for soccer.  He's varsity lettered in soccer all three years at Issaquah High, and will be one of the senior directive players this upcoming season for his team.  He currently plays for three different soccer teams and is getting ready to attend the Far West Regional League soccer tournaments as well as the National League play for his age.  So...there's lots of travel in his near future!

Adrian is in the Running Start program at Bellevue College and will graduate his senior year with an Associate Degree - impressive!  His other interests outside of school all involve the great outdoors:  snowboarding, wakeboarding, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing and outdoor photography.

Plans for college include attending somewhere that will allow him to still enjoy all of his outdoor activities, as well as obtain the degree he desires.  Potential majors are Marine Biology and Oceanography.  Doesn't California sound like a good fit for all of this?  He plans to play soccer in college, and is aiming for Southern California Division I or II.

Adrian was great to work with, has a winning personality, and...fantastic hair!  My assistant and I both think he could go far as a BBC period drama actor.  Can't you just see him as the next Mr. Darcy in 10 years?!

Congratulations on all of your achievements and future plans Adrian - well done!

Redmond Senior Photography - Jackson at Lake Sammamish http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/10/class-of-2018---jackson We were at Idylwood Park a couple weeks back with this handsome guy!  Meet Jackson, a senior this year at Bishop Blanchet in Seattle.  It was raining cats and dogs literally right up to the time of the shoot, but thankfully it stopped just in time for us to start.

One of my first questions was, 'do you play sports'. Turns out, he's very into weight lifting...just look at those guns for goodness sakes!

Jackson enjoys fitness and exercise in general and can often be found working out with friends after school.  He even took the initiative to start a weight lifting club at school.  

Another notable high school experience has been volunteering at the Emergency Men's Shelter on the eastside, where he helps to serve meals.

College goals include studying Business or Computer Science.

Congrats Jackson, and to the Class of 2018!!

Tacoma Senior Photographer - Josh's Woodland Adventure http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/9/class-of-2018---josh Josh officially wins the prize for Most Adventurous senior shoot of the year, hands down! 

We decided to meet at his favorite park and for some reason, I decided to wear athletic clothes and my tennis shoes to this shoot...NOT my typical wardrobe choice for shoots at all.  But what a blessing that last minute decision turned out to be, because when we arrived at the location, I learned that we would be hiking into the woods to find a very special spot for his first pics. 

Well, 'Hiking into the woods' ended up involving a serious scramble up a sheer, loose dirt, cliff face, and I'm telling you...had there not been a few strategically placed tree roots, I seriously would not have made it!  Josh was up it in literally 2 seconds, carrying a big backpack and props.  Kudos to his mom for making this same scramble, as well as to my assistant Danyel (with camera gear on her back even!). 

You might recognize Josh from his friend Niko's senior shoot awhile back...the fun military shots in the open field?  Josh kept with the military theme for his first pics, but definitely upped the game this time around by adding a new prop...the classic Patton cigar!  The great thing about all this is that Josh actually plans on going into the military after graduation.  He's thinking about the Navy, the same branch his grandfather served in.  HOOYAH!! :)

Congratulations Josh - hope your Senior Year is the best yet!

Woodinville Wedding Photography - Hannah and Ryan's Backyard Wedding http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/9/hannah-and-ryans-backyard-wedding---september-9th-2017 Being a part of Hannah and Ryan's beautiful backyard wedding was amazing!  This young couple spent the day surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones as they celebrated the beginning of their new life together, and I was blessed to have been chosen to capture it all. 

Hannah was such a beautiful bride and glowed the entire day - I think she's smiling in just about every single image!  And that's exactly as it should be...she's literally the picture of love. :)

Their ceremony was full of humorous moments, and I especially appreciated 'The Office' references made not only by the Groom, but by the Pastor as well - classic!  A great sense of humor is important in any successful marriage, and these two were definitely able to share a good laugh together.

Hannah's parents and friends put so much effort into transforming their large backyard into an elegant wedding setting...even building a spacious new wood deck extending into the treeline.  The perfect location for both the ceremony, and the dancing.  The date was actually doubly celebratory as it was also Hannah's mom's birthday! 

Ryan chose to skip the 'first look' scenario, and saved his first sight of Hannah for the moment she was walking down the aisle - so romantic! It was fun watching Hannah slip around trying to avoid Ryan and the Groomsmen before their pictures together.

I was also super blessed to have the amazingly talented Ariella of Ariella Noelle Photography on hand as my second shooter.  I enjoy working with her immensely, and this was actually our second wedding together.  Hannah's hair and makeup were done by the equally amazingly talented Deborah Lobe.

Here are just a few highlights from wedding details, all the way through to a sparkler exit!

Enjoy :)

Senior Portraits Bellevue - Anthony's Session http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/9/class-of-2018---anthony Anthony was a last minute senior session and I'm so glad we were able to make it work!  His school has the earliest picture deadline I've seen yet...in September for goodness sakes.  He was so easy to work with and man, did he dress for success!  Being last minute, we certainly didn't let a little rain ruin his shoot either...'plan B' provided cover, plus natural light, and the urban vibe fit perfectly for both dressy, and casual outfits. :)

Branding Sessions | Seattle, WA Branding Photographer near Bellevue, WA | Arden of Clise Etiquette http://www.chaybiggerphoto.com/blog/2017/9/ardens-branding-shoot Meet Arden Clise of Clise Etiquette!

I had the opportunity to work with Arden a few weeks back to produce branding images for her new website, and the venue she chose was FABULOUS...the Seattle World Trade Center.  

Here's a little bio from her old website:

"Arden Clise is founder and president of Clise Etiquette. Her love for business etiquette began in previous jobs when she was frequently asked for etiquette, public speaking and business attire advice by executives and board members. The passion for etiquette took hold and compelled Arden to start a consulting business to help others. Today, as a professional trainer, coach, speaker and author, Arden has helped thousands of professionals, from executives to front-line staff, confidently and comfortably navigate business situations for career success.

A popular writer, Arden wrote a regular business etiquette column for the Puget Sound Business Journal, and writes an award-winning newsletter. Her new book, Spinach In Your Boss’s Teeth: Essential Etiquette for Professional Success is available on amazon.com. Arden is often quoted in national and international publications including Real Simple MagazineThe Wall Street Journal, China Daily News and The European Weekly. She is a frequent guest on television and radio shows,

Arden has more than 25 years of business experience in marketing, management, event planning and public relations. She received her certification as an etiquette consultant by The Etiquette Institute and earned her Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from the University of Washington. An active member of Women Business Owners, Arden also volunteers with Treehouse and PAWS."

I can't wait to see the new website!
