Blake is a happy 6 year old who is obsessed with sharks, superheroes and Star Wars. Upon first meeting him, you would never guess that he has a terminal rare disease. But on a closer look you would see that he has bruises all over his arms and legs, he gets tired quickly and is smaller than the rest of the kids his age. Just before age 2, Blake was diagnosed with a very rare genetic disease called Fanconi anemia, FA. Fanconi anemia is primarily a blood disease that may lead to bone marrow failure (aplastic anemia), leukemia, and/or solid tumors. FA can affect all systems of the body. FA patients are extremely likely to develop a variety of cancers and at a much earlier age than patients in the general population. Earlier this year, Blake was inpatient at Seattle Children’s Hospital for 40+ days for a bone marrow transplant. He endured 7 days of chemo and received new cells from an anonymous donor. This process wasn’t easy and Blake is still recovering, he will be in isolation until next year while his new immune system grows and strengthens. Through this whole process Blake has been so brave. He is a true superhero.

Meet Tari and her beautiful German Shepherd Izzy. We did their portrait session at our Renton, Washington studio. Izzy was the perfect model. Kate has known Izzy and Tari for about 6 months. When she found out they were leaving our beautiful Washington state and moving to Miami, Florida. She insisted to commemorate their beautiful relationship. And we believe the portraits show the true love between these two.
Fairy Chloe has been in our studio in Renton, Washington many times. We love to photograph her. This time she brought her best friend Avery. Such wonderful fairies. These special dresses come from Love Baby J and we love all her dresses. Avery and Chloe had so much fun dressing up and twirling around in the studio. Watching them as they looked at their images during our ordering session was so much fun. They could imagine the magic the was going to happen while they munched happily on popcorn with Avery’s older brother. Preston was such a trooper as the girls didn’t want a “boy” to watch them. He went upstairs into our viewing room and was quite the gentlman.
We love it when friends come to the studio to be photographed together. They met at a McDonalds playland!!! Wouldn’t it be nice if we could meet our friends at a playland too?
