The Cutest Couple’s Christmas Photos!!

My friend and fellow photographer, Rebecca, and I, recently did Christmas photo sessions for each other. She did photos of my husband and me at a Christmas tree farm, and then I did photos of her and her husband at an old, and very cool, dairy farm! Rebecca is the girl behind Rebecca Anne Photography, check out her stuff!
It’s always so much fun when we get to spend some time together, and this time was no exception!! Though, I was a little nervous at first, being the photographer for another photographer I have to admit! Rebecca put so much thought into this session, she made and brought along the cutest props! Her and her husband are so super duper ridiculously cute together (yes, that many superlatives are necessary to accurately describe the degree of their cuteness)! I think I was smiling the entire time I was editing these, I just can’t get over their adorableness!!! JP Photography engagement wedding seattle photo

The 2012 Highlight Reel // Tacoma Photographer

Wow!!  2012 was a big year for JP Photography! I am so blessed and thankful to have such wonderful returning clients, new clients, and new friends! Thank you all for being a part of our year.

What a relief that the world didn’t end, and we can look forward to another fantastic year ahead! :) Here’s some big moments, milestones and some favorite times from 2012…

I kicked-off 2012 by celebrating this little man turning one!! It’s such a privilege following my littlest of clients through their first year, and this guy is just so adorable with his beautiful blue eyes he always makes my job easy! :)

A huge highlight for me this year was a special project for my JP Portfolio. This was a stylized session, Trash the Dress: Prom EditionThis was my baby for the summer, something I had planned and worked on for a long time before even shooting it. I am so happy that this was part of 2012 for me.

On a personal/half-business note.. my husband and I bought a house this summer!! I say it’s half business because, well…  you see those big beautiful windows? That means, it’s been the PERFECT home studio setting for natural-light newborn sessions! I even created a nursery in one of the bedrooms for a private place for moms to feed and snuggle baby during breaks.  Come check it out :)

Only the best for my JP Newborn Families :)

2012 also brought a very fun Band Session for Emily Randolph & Innocent Bystander!! 

These guys were so fun to work with!

I keep forgetting how exciting 2012 really was until I look back at all of these!

I had the opportunity to go down on the field at the Tacoma Rainiers Game to photograph my favorite non-profit, Peace Out, throw the first pitch!

Every year I go to the fair, and every year I am dying to do a session there! Well, 2012 was my year! I shot a very fun and colorful session at the fair during the golden hour of the setting sun. Photographer bliss!

This beautiful family was the icing on the cake! ..or should I say the jelly on the scone? lol, maybe I shouldn’t.

In September, I took a huge step with JP Photography, and a huge leap of faith. JP Photography went full-time! This opened many more doors for my business, including the opportunity to shoot weekday sessions, which can be very important in Newborn Photography.

I had the opportunity to photograph so many beautiful newborns since going full-time. For the sake of keeping my readers, here’s just one of those beautiful babes.

In 2012 I offered my first (likely annual) Holiday Mini Sessions for clients, and boy were these a hit!

This was a fun, fast-paced day with 10 back-to-back sessions!

Holiday Mini Sessions // Puyallup Family Photographer

My  blog has been a bit lonely lately, as I’ve been busy with a rush of December Newborns and a mix of other fun sessions, but I wanted to be sure and still share some photos of the beautiful couples and families that joined me for our Holiday Mini Sessions! I had the opportunity to work with the SnowShoe Evergreen Christmas Tree farm and the family that owns it this year for our JP Holiday Event!! Their location was so beautiful and perfect for our holiday sessions. This was a fun day, and a very busy day for me with 10 Mini Sessions back-to-back, and the perfect start to the holiday season!

I loved this outtake of brother and sister playing together in the little Christmas trees! Cracked me up!

This was my first time meeting this sweet family. I love that candid shot of them walking through the trees together and the shimmering morning dew on the grass.

Isn’t she adorable, and her mama made that beautiful dress! Such a sweetie.

Back in our high school days, Melissa and I spent many lock-ins, retreats, roadtrips, etc, together through our youth group. It was fun to reconnect with her during our session and meet her bf, Ted!

Another high school friend joined in on the sessions and brought her sweet family. Crystal and I have known each other since second grade and now her sweet kiddos are attending our elementary school : )

Crystal did an excellent job dressing her fam for the session.  I love how their colors and stripes coordinate but aren’t too matchy-matchy.

Well I’m pretty darn sure that NOTHING says “Be Merry” quite like this little bundle of joy!! She was so happy, these two were a blast to work with!puyallup tacoma photographer photo

These guys and I went to college together at Pacific Lutheran University. It was fun to see them again! Their little pup Sophie was so cute. Looks like she wants a kiss in this photo too! ;)

During the afternoon, the sun lit up this willow tree so beautifully, it was perfect for photos!

Thank you Snowshoe Evergreen and Family // Puyallup Family Photographer

We recently finished up our JP Holiday Mini Sessions! This was a fun one day event for families to reserve 30 minute sessions for holiday photos. I wanted to provide my clients with a unique experience and setting, yet portray a festive holiday feel in the photos. I researched MANY great places throughout the county, but when I came across Snow Shoe Evergreen I knew this would be the perfect match! You can imagine how thrilled I was when they agreed to share their beautiful location for our day of sessions.

Snow Shoe Evergreen is a gorgeous Christmas Tree Farm nestled in the Puyallup valley. They are a family owned business and have been around for many years. As soon as you set foot on the farm it’s easy to see the great care they take in all they do. The setting is beautiful, thoughtfully laid out and complete with special touches to give it a warm family feel.

Not only did I have the pleasure of enjoying the beautiful farm and sharing it with my clients, but I had the opportunity to do a Family Session for the owners of Snow Shoe Evergreen themselves! I really enjoyed getting to know you and your family, Kristi!

Isn’t their little girl so adorable?! They were such a fun family to work with. Even throughout our event, they were so considerate and accomodating of me and my clients. They really made us feel welcome.

A big thanks to the whole family for sharing your location with us. I know it’s more than a business, but rather an important piece of your family’s life. Thank you.

Not only does their little one have a super cute look, but she has a super fun personality! She definitely kept me on my toes! Lucky for me, playful energetic sessions are my favorite type! : )

Thank you all so much for your hospitality and generosity! I know my clients loved your location as well. Several times that day I heard the remark, “Wow this place is so nice, we will definitely have to come back here for our Christmas Tree!” I’m so glad we had the opportunity to work together! Merry Christmas!
