The Petree family are some of our dearest friends. Shawn & Anna have three beautiful children; Moriah, Elijah ... and in these photos the youngest, Hadassah, is in Anna's belly. I had the privilege of taking their family photos a few weeks before Hadassah was born. Anna said she loved the photos she had taken right before Elijah was born of her and Moriah, and wanted to document the family with just the two children. I love this idea. How sweet to have photos of the family and the new baby on it's way.
Laurelhurst Park is a beautiful setting for photos. The park is located in North East Seattle. We headed to the park because it is in the Petree's neighborhood. The park is beautiful, and has an amazing sloping hill that was perfect for capturing so much green in the photos. I also love the trees and the low sun of the late day.
I love Anna's style. Anna is very creative and she brought the balloons along to add some color and playfulness to the photos. She also did a wonderful job with dressing the kids. Their outfits bring a great POP of color.
Thank you Petree Family! Your family is beautiful.
