The summer is finally here. I am home, sitting on the front porch and soaking in the sun. The best thing about it is that I’m having this summer off! The whole summer! No long hours at work, no stress, no extra projects to work on. This summer I’ll be actually enjoying LIFE and will spend it with my family. The children are having a blast already and we are looking forward to spend every day outside. I’m planning to have our days filled with trips to the beach, parks, playdates and evening barbecques with friends. I am so looking forward to it! Happy first day
Today, our family is being featured over on the great blog Let the Kids Dress Themselves – an inspiration blog that loves authentic family and lifestyle photography. Lovely and talented Buffy Dekmar, an Atlanta photographer visiting Seattle for the weekend, somehow managed to capture our busy family and the fun we had chasing seagulls, blowing bubbles, running around and just being us. We absolutely love the pictures and hope you’ll enjoy looking at them too. Please visit Letthekids.com to see the feature.
Back in January, we had our family photos taken by Buffy Dekmar, an amazing photographer from Atlanta, who was in town for the weekend. I received the prints today and they just blew me away! They are so gorgeous, I have fallen in love with nearly every photo Buffy took. She managed to effortlessly capture the most priceless moments and the essence of our children’s spirit. We had such a fun time at Alki Beach despite the weather being on the gloomy side. Jakob and Izzy dressed themselves for the occasion and brought extra hats, their favorite toy – pedal tractor, bubbles and balloons. Buffy was sweet and kind, kids adored her and we had a remarkable experience.
The pictures turned out more than amazing. The light and the colors are so dreamy that it almost makes me love the rain and the Seattle’s winter weather…. We love, love, love them! Buffy captured in pictures a magical memory that we will treasure forever.
Buffy Dekmar is a fine art photographer, specializing in wedding and lifestyle photography. She’s a pleasure to work with and I can’t recommend her enough. You can enjoy her work here.
