Lifestyle portrait of Washington photographer Keala Li of Dream Catchers Pictures Studio

I am a lifestyle family, newborn and senior photographer based out of Seattle in Washington state, capturing organic and full-of-life images for families around the Greater Seattle area. My sessions are relaxed, laid-back and fun. I let kids be kids and their personalities shine. I will get your family to laugh, hug, play and simply enjoy your time together and I will be there to capture it all - the sound of your little one’s laughter, the smell of your new baby’s warm fuzzy hair. I am obsessed with capturing family connections in an authentic, vibrant and emotive way in our beautiful Pacific Northwest or in the comfort of your own home. Once upon a time, I was a research statistician and worked in clinical trials for a few years. After having my own children I often find myself astonished by how fleeting each stage of family life really is. My love for photography has changed my life, for the better. It slows me down and allows me to be much more aware and present in life. As a family and newborn photographer, my goal is to tell your family’s ordinary but extraordinary story through beautiful artistic images that will last a lifetime. When not photographing, you will find me embracing my awesome and chaotic life with my husband and our two daughters who keep us on our toes.

When I’m not with my own, I’m often educating myself on all aspects of photography so I can be a better family lifestyle photographer for families like yours.

Amy Mehlos - Amy Louise Seattle Lifestyle Photography

I'm Amy. A wife, mother, lover of travel, a dreamer and an artist. I enjoy spending time with laid back, fun people and sipping coffee at yummy cafes. My four little boys are my everything. They have taught me so much about life and love. I don't make my bed every day. I sometimes forget to water my plants. I have a habit of looking for pretty light everywhere I go. I love spending time with friends. The beach makes me feel calm. I'm a proud Kiwi. I love to people watch and rocking my babies to sleep is the most beautiful part of my day. I believe that there is so much beauty in each family and that the everyday chaos should be embraced. I believe that life is beautiful, even with all its chaos, and I believe the imperfect should be celebrated. People come to me for a relaxed, authentic and love filled photo session. I love to photograph families in their own homes, the four walls in which they are most comfortable. You’ve put a lot of time into creating the home of your dreams. Let’s feature it as the backdrop to your family photos. I create a space for families to come together and love on one another. No epic location, no new clothes needed. All I ask of you is that you show up as YOU. As a mother of four kids, I know that kids can have a mind of their own. This is why I never truly “plan” sessions. Your kids can be as wild and crazy as they like. It won’t phase me. The whole point of a lifestyle session is to photograph you exactly as you are. If that means kids want to be in your arms and snuggling the whole time, then that’s exactly how we’ll capture them. If your kids want to run and play, that’s great. We’ll photograph them having fun. I want you to know that I see the beauty in your family. You may look through galleries of other families and think that you can’t live up to that. That your life isn’t that pretty. But trust me, it is. You have a unique story to tell and it is just as worthy of being told as anyone else’s. I see it, and I want to create images where you can see it too.

Seattle Family and Newborn Photography by Alec Mills

The story of my life with a camera started when I was 11, and without knowing it, I have had a camera at my side since that day 24 years ago. But my journey of photographing human connection started 9 years ago after I gave birth to my daughter. Feeling like time was moving too fast, my lens turned to the tiny human in my lap. Her newborn toes and baby rolls were quickly transforming into a fast and toothy toddler... I wanted to remember it all. Each tiny finger. Every curl on the back of her neck. How we touched noses for comfort. Or the first garden we planted together. As a child, I loved flipping through old picture boxes and hoarding my favorites. I asked about what I saw in the pictures and my parents recalled vacations, holidays, stories of drawing on the walls with permanent markers, birthdays, or trips to the park to feed the ducks. The pictures became a way for us to remember. To tell stories. Photography is my way of storytelling, and when I look at a photograph, I FEEL the moment, and my head and heart rejoice in the memory. With my lens, I capture the everyday details that make up my life, those moments that become my cherished memories.

Chris Shum is a San Francisco, CA based lifestyle photographer.

Ever since I was a teenager, I have always enjoyed taking pictures with the camera my dad passed onto me, capturing the things, people and places around me. In 2007, I decided to turn this passion of mine into my career. Since then I have been shooting weddings, engagements, special events, family, kids and babies. I love telling stories with my camera, and my pictures demonstrated my characteristic style and unique perspective, simple yet elegant. I take great pride to apply my skills and talent to document the important and precious moments of life of my clients into lasting fine art pictures. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to capture these memories for my clients so they can cherish a lifetime.

Black and white portrait of Portland lifestyle photographer Evelynne Gomes-Greenberg of Oregon

I am originally from Brazil and lived in London for 12 years before moving to the great Pacific Northwest. As a mom, I know how busy parents are and how important making and keeping memories of our little ones is. My work as a photographer brings me to revisit some of my most cherished memories of a barefoot childhood and spilled ice cream. Because of that, my sessions are filled with fun and have a lot of room for authentic connections between you and your loved ones. I believe in the central and essential role of women in society as mothers, professionals, and individuals and so I always make time for mama to have her special moment in front of the camera. When I’m not making pictures you can find me in the kitchen looking for something sweet, crying to an episode of Schitt’s Creek or under a pile of dishes.

Portrait of Ventura lifestyle and family photographer Loren Haar of California

I am a Southern California storyteller photographer, capturing your everyday life and times in images. For me, it is all about authentic imagery that represents who you are. I’ve always been one to document, but my love of photography really blossomed with the birth of our first child. I inherited my first DSLR camera, which I enjoyed, but it wasn’t until a friend taught me how to use the manual mode that I realized pointing and shooting play a very small role in creating a compelling image. So my quest began: to make images — creatively and expertly — that move the viewer. Soon after, I had life-changing moments to document: our 2nd daughter’s cleft palate surgery and bringing our son home from the hospital for the first time. But I have realized what I enjoy most is capturing the little things: how she cocks her head when she pushes her palms into the play dough, or how he clambers up onto a bike that is way too big for him. For me, the joy of capturing a moment beautifully and memorably is the most exciting part of photography. I would love to share this gift with you, to come together for a time and create a collection of images that bring you just such joy.

Idaho and Coeur d'Alene lifestyle and family portrait photographer - Jerome Pollos

The power of photography and that tangible element is real and is meaningful. It’s the visual documentation that provides proof we were here. We experience life, love, receive love, accomplish great feats, endure, and are a part of history within our family and communities. After that experience, I immersed myself in photojournalism. I studied, job shadowed, worked my butt off telling the stories of people who I was lucky enough to get an inside look of their lives. I’ve focused the photojournalism experience from all the assignments I’ve covered into telling stories of the people who won’t have their images highlighted inside a newspaper or magazine. This is why I do what I do. It’s also why my home has images hanging from every wall to highlight who my daughters were growing up, and who they are now. I want to always remember the 20th anniversary trip with my wife, and see myself and my girls acting goofy together. These moments are fleeting and the memories quickly fade without the images to remind us. Through portraits and weddings, I’ve devoted a big part of my life to telling stories with my images. And I take that responsibility very seriously. Because I want you to have that tangible element that will tell your story to your children, and grandchildren, and their children. I want a family member to walk down a hallway decades from now and point to a picture and ask about that moment captured in time.

Jared Lindsay, Lifestyle Photographer of DFW, Texas

As a father of 3, I know how crazy parenthood is. I also know how fast time goes by and how important it is to record those fleeting moments that make up this wild thing we call 'life'. That is why I feel, more strongly then ever, that it is very crucial to be as unobtrusive as I can be when making photographs of families so that I do not interrupt those moments that make this whole thing worthwhile and precious. To document those little moments that you will look back on and make you smile is not just for you, the parent, but more so for your children. For them to have an honest record of how your life and family were in truth. Life is too short not to.
