Look how we've grown!

This family has been on my mind. Mainly because they are wonderful...and we have been through so much together...and I get to see them again in a few weeks!! Oh--and I was going through my photo files and noticed how insanely LARGE theirs was! On average, we did a photo shoot every 6 months for the last 3 1/2 years. So yes, Fulton family, I nominate you my most loyal clients!

Sadly, when we moved from Seattle 6 months ago we said goodbye to them as well. On a whim of fate, and I believe it is, Jordon began his training for the special forces only 3 hours away from where we live now, and get this--in my Hubby's HOME TOWN where my in-laws still live. We were able to see them when Sarah and her two girls flew down to see Jordan 2 weeks ago, and they will be coming again to spend some more time with us in a few weeks when he graduates. What are the odds?

When I think about how I have grown in my photography, I think of them. They have always trusted me and let me do anything I wanted. I could be as creative or cheesy during a shoot and they didn't care. Oh, and the fact that they are all drop dead gorgeous makes them, officially, friends with benefits! (LOL)

Back in the day when I still did film, I used baby Juli as one of my first photo shoots in Seattle. And 3 1/2 years later....look how they, and I, have grown! To see more photos of this gorgeous family, click here and here and here and here and here

"Look how far you've come, baby!"
I still love those first black and whites down at Coulon. Your skill and equipment have come a long way, but right from the first your creativity and eye for capturing personality come through.
I'm glad that we could be practice and portfolio-filler for you :) The pictures are a priceless gift to us - I am so very thankful for them. Thank you for sharing your gift so generously!
