Hi, I'm Neyssa

This family was one of the most interesting families I captured this holiday season! We met at the Kirkland Marina, where we had all kinds of adventures. The kids were quite the characters, with great imaginations and beautiful smiles. Their dad, however, did admit that he thought having his picture taken was literally painful. You can’t tell by this beautiful image of the family, though!

I love pictures of a mom and her kids. I think this little boy agreed with dad, it can be rough getting your picture taken! I think this picture tells such a great story, with big sister smiling beautifully, while younger brother makes funny faces making mom laugh!

We did get more serious shots of younger brother….

and fun shots of big sister!

These last two are a few of my favorite moments from the day. This was a quiet one towards the end of the shoot.

But then the kids found this rock that looked like a bowl, where they took to the task of making soup! It reminded me of the story “Stone Soup” from when I was a kid. My husband had no idea what I was talking about, but I looked it up and sure enough, it is an old folk story!

Thank you for braving the cold and spending the morning with me! Your children are so beautiful and full of spirit. I had a wonderful time capturing them. I hope it wasn’t too painful for dad!
