  I commonly get requests for newborn photos in clients homes, but also love to photograph families in the space where they spend large portions of their time together. If you are interested in an at home photo session of your family to record the place you congregate, celebrate a home that you are about to move out of or a new home that you have just moved into, I would love to help you out with this adventure.  We can photograph a more documentary style while you build or bake something with your kids. Or we can capture a more lifestyle session as you snuggle and play with your kid ..read more

  I’ve heard people over the years give several reasons for not having professional family photos taken. But a true professional photographer will be able to help you handle the stress and look amazing, dispelling any concerns that you have about getting your family in photos together.  These are the top reasons that clients have given for not wanting to get in front of the lens and why I think you can get great photos of your family even if you have all of these fears!     1.     “My House is too Messy” There are several solutions to this problem.

Can my kids handle a photo shoot? | Eickhoff Photography

  Yes! The answer is yes, I think so =) You may be thinking, my kids are crazy sometimes, there is no way they will sit still for photos. They run around, they want to do all the things they aren’t supposed to be doing and all we will end up with is photos of the back of their heads as they take off to look at something cool on the ground. Don’t worry about it, just let me do the worrying! My kids run around like maniacs every time we do a photo shoot, but we always manage to corral them back in for some amazing photos. No matter how “out of control” or grumpy you think your kids are duri ..read more

I definitely have some favorite parks for photo shoots in and around Seattle, but would be excited to explore a park close to your home if you have one that you love too.

Newborn Photo Shoot in Lynnwood, WA | Eickhoff Photography

  Are you curious what a newborn session gallery might look like? I don’t often blog full sessions, but thought it might be helpful to give an idea of the variety you may see in your newborn session photos. Usually for newborn photos, we can select 2-3 spaces in your home that feel comfortable for you and your family. This is often the living room, nursery, master bedroom or family room. Selecting a few spots allows us to create different styles of photos with different poses and backgrounds. If we are fortunate enough to get a dry day in Seattle instead of our standard grey rainy skies ..read more

Best Parks for Hiking with Kids near Seattle, WA

  Are you an avid hiker? Do you love being in the mountains? Do you love the smell of the evergreens and the feeling of sunshine on your skin? Me too! The mountains are my happy place =) However, after having kids, I found it a bit overwhelming to lug them and all of their needs out to the mountains. Between the 1-2 hour drive up to a good hiking spot, packing all the snacks, diapers, and extra clothes for the inevitable blowout, and finding the extra energy to carry my sweet bundle all the way up a mountain, I found myself exhausted just considering the possibility.   But, I know t ..read more

  If you’ve never had a mini session before, you may be curious to see the quantity and variety of images we can capture in such a short time. Mini sessions in the studio are super efficient because we do not have to walk anywhere in order to change the view, we can simply turn around and use a different set up. We can get a great amount of variety of shots in a very short period of time. Of course, given the limited time available for a mini session, we have the best outcomes when you arrive on time and ready to be photographed (hair, makeup, and clothes all ready to go). Mini Sessions a ..read more

Have you ever heard your friend say, “oh I don’t want to get photos taken yet, I still have 10 pounds to lose since my last baby was born and I just really don’t like the way I look”? Have you ever said this? I get it…I’m not sure if I said it out loud after I had my daughter, but I sure thought it.   When my son was born, my body bounced back unusually quickly. I have photos from when he was about 2 weeks old and I look almost back to my pre-pregnancy normal. This is not typical!! It really set my mind for how I expected to recover after my daughter was born 2 years later. Little did I ..read more
