I met up with this beautiful couple on a unusually warm Spring evening in Seattle. The weather was warm and the backdrop was Bothell Landing Park, which is one of my favorite places to capture memories. Today the park was a bit busy as it was prom night for nearby Bothell High and there were many kids there in formal gowns and tuxedos. I met up with Mark and Michelle who are expecting a little boy at the end of May. They brought along “Big Brother” Nico, the family dog. It was important for Mark and Michelle to have pictures that included Nico and I was happy to accomodate their request being an animal lover with two dogs of my own. We started at the far end of the park on the trail which is a quiet and tranquil spot. The sun was shinning through the trees and it made for some gorgeous lighting. Nico was a great model for us and did a good job obeying commands so we could capture those family shots. Michelle looked beautiful and was glowing. We spent a lot of time exploring the park and capturing memories they will be able to share with their little boy. I am excited for this couple and can’t wait to meet their little boy in a few weeks. They are going to be wonderful parents. Nico is going to be a great dog brother and I can’t wait to capture those special memories with him and the new baby.
