Can we all agree that fall, and Halloween, are the best? This fall we had a ton of fun with Augie, now almost 21 months, at Craven Farm, picking out pumpkins, playing on trucks and tractors, visiting animals, and enjoying the weather. His BFF Logan makes an appearance in these photos, too – Logan and his family are moving just a few blocks away from us and I am so excited that these boys will be growing up together!
At 21 months, Augie talks up a storm. His comprehension and vocabulary astound me! His loves remain trucks (really, anything with wheels), books, balls, and stuffed animals. He loves his music class and a kids gymnastics class, but is equally happy driving cars around our house.
For Halloween, my sister made him an owl costume. It is the most beautiful thing ever and August was adorable in it. He spent the whole day saying, “Whoo whooooo,” “trick-or-treat,” “happy Halloween,” and “búho costume!” (Búho is Spanish for owl.) Halloween also gave us the opportunity to sport a family costume with Tyler as the tree, me as the nest, and Augs as our little búho – and we have a little family announcement to make, as well, about what’s in momma owl’s nest these days … scroll to the bottom of the post to find out!
As a family photographer, I get a lot of questions from clients about where their photo shoots should take place. While a super-picturesque location can provide an amazing backdrop, sometimes the best place for photos can be found while simply strolling around your own neighborhood. For Bennett’s 18 month and fall family photos, we stuck close to home, walking around Seattle’s Capitol Hill, and ended up in his very own living room. The results are fantastic! Happy 18 months, Bennett. You are a lover of leaves and apples, books and blocks, and your “surprise” face is absolutely adorable!
I love reconnecting with past clients and following families through their lives. Whether I start with an engagement and follow a couple all the way through their baby’s first year or jump in much later, it’s always fun to revisit people and watch them grow. I’ve had the pleasure to track Andrew for well over a year now, and he just keeps getting cuter! Here he is at 20 months, a sweet, laughing, toddler, enjoying the last days of summer (I’m a bit behind on some of these posts!):
Check out Andrew at 8 months – he’s grown so much!
I adore kids, so family shoots are always welcome here at Julie Sterling Photography! Ollie and Max were especially fun to spend the morning with – we stuck close to home and played in the yard, taking advantage of a lovely end-of-summer day. These siblings are so sweet with each other, and super-affectionate with Mom and Dad, too. It was a pleasure to be there with them!
