family photos

We’re crunching on a deadline here at Studio Zerbey, but I wanted to drop by to share some family photos that we had taken recently. Now, we have no shortage of photos of Avery (and Bailey, for that matter), but very few of us as a family. I wanted something more than the outstretched-arm iPhone photos, but different from a traditional portrait setting. We worked with Seattle photographer Dorothy Huynh and she was great! (We also took the opportunity to snap a few headshots to use for our Studio Zerbey website and various other things.)


For our outfits, I didn’t want to be all matchy-matchy but there needed to be some cohesiveness. I actually picked out Avery’s shirt first and then Kyle and I chose things that would compliment it.



Classic Bailey. This is what he does when he meets a new person.




We went through a lot of O’s trying to placate a wiggly little girl who was ready for a nap by the end of the session.






Kyle just started wearing glasses and I love them. (Back off ladies…)


In addition to our home, I also wanted an outdoor setting. These were taken at Discovery Park in Seattle. (We took a couple with Bailey, but could only coordinate a dog and baby for so long. No offense, Bails.)












Thank you Dorothy for taking these photos of our family. Now, time to actually print a few to hang in the house! Y’know, eventually.

    Love them – especially the one of you walking down the path with Avery looking over your shoulder. Too cute! We have had the privilege of visiting Discovery Park – what an awsome place.

      Thanks! I don’t know why but I tend to forget Discovery Park is there and then when I go I’m totally blown away by how beautiful and tucked away it feels for an urban park.

    These are so lovely! So great that you took the time to get them done. I know it’s a cliché, but the time does go by so fast. One thing that we are starting to do, are just simple home movies on our cameras of day-to-day things like Sunday breakfasts. It seems sort of old-fashioned but it’s really a great way of capturing little moments.

      I’m starting to take more videos too (easier than photographs now that she’s more mobile!). I also like to do short videos (from my phone) and think they’ll be great keepsakes. Seems like the videos from my childhood were all really loooong and therefore didn’t get watched as often.
