Miss M is SO so cute, such a little peanut that would curl up in your arms.  Loved meeting her and her sweet family at the studio a couple weeks ago. :)

Has the cutest little dimples on both cheeks!

Loved the heirloom blankets that grandma brought like the one shown above (and hand made headbands from her aunt) – it’s awesome to be able to incorporate something personal into a newborn sessions!

First session of 2012!  What a cutie.  I had fun getting back into work after taking some time off to reset myself and my business and prepare for 2012.  It seems to be taking right off again!

LOVE!!  Hehe.

 

And while the session above was just for Mr J, Big brother stopped in for a visit last November with his family for their annual family session.   I think he’s pretty adorable too!

 

Come out and help us raise some money for Loving Hugs, Inc with special edition mini sessions in the studio loft, located in Bellevue. Up to two kids, 20 minutes for each session.   Additional children are 10.00 each.    My kids love their stuffed animals – love what they are doing to help the children around the world. (bio posted below).  Money from the session fee will be donated to the organization.  Session fee includes a 5×7 print and 10% off your order too!  Special packages will be available.

Who is Loving Hugs?

We collect your donations of stuffed animals (new or very ‘gently used’)- we call them “hugs”, to send to children in war zones, orphanages, refugee and IDP (internally displaced persons) camps, and medical/hospital facilities around the world. We also send your donations of stuffed animals for emergencies from natural disasters around the world, such as the 2009 flood in Manila, Philippines, and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, to bring some comfort and hope to those children.

Contact me to arrange your time!  Hope to see you!

Just finished a commercial project with a stunning model in downtown Bellevue.  Loved working with the downtown city/urban elements at this building.  Here are a few of my favorites from this shoot.

 

Ha, ha, sorry for the pun. We had a funny week with this Seattle snowstorm.. felt like a week filled with Sundays which isn’t too bad really, having forced downtime.  Makes you sit and think about things which sometimes we really need to be forced to do that.  Also helps you notice little things or take some time to do something different from the daily activities and busyness.  So for a quiet hour, I spent some time outside capturing birds, which I love.  I also sneaked in a few images of my kids which are hard to capture, really really hard to capture being that all they wanted to was to play in the snow or worry about their next activity that will save them from the god-forbidden boredom of nothing-ness.   Yeah, it’s good for them too.  :)

 

Love shooting in the snow!  Clean fresh backgound and loads of natural light…

 

Wow, I can’t believe all the beautiful families and children I see here.  2011 has been a great year for Holli Dunn Photography!  Celebrated a year in the Bellevue studio, expanded it by double towards the end of 2011 and met many new wonderful people which makes my job very rewarding!   I also took some time to work on personal goals which I’m very proud of too.  Here’s to another great year!  See you all soon!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

Ahhh, it’s that crazy busy time that I can barely breath some days – for which I’m very thankful for I must say!   I want to thank my super sweet and patient client Amanda, whom I’m posting this sneak peek for.  She’s been waiting for awhile now… knowing that I have been working on getting out cards for everyone who needs them.   Almost all of which will be ready for pick up tomorrow or Sunday, whoooo!

It’s also nice to update my very neglected blog and facebook page with some fresh images.  More to come soon…. I’m nearly done with editing holiday sessions and orders and am looking forward to spending some time with my family and enjoy the holidays.  :)   Hopefully more time to post a few of the recent sessions I’ve been busy with.  Every one of my clients has been great this year!

This is going to be a lot of fun, I’m really exited to meet some local artists and see their creations, and meet some fabulous women!  we have over 17 vendors, so there will be a lot to choose from and I’m sure you will all find something great to help with your holiday shopping!

So stop on by and support local businesses!!

And only at the show, I’ll be selling DISCOUNTED mini session gift certificates for Jan-July mini sessions!  Come and meet me, see some samples of my work and book your child’s session!   :)   I will be selling my chocolate creations as well.   Scroll down for a list of our awesome vendors!

See you next week!
