Hi! I'm Sioned, the artist behind the lens. I specialize in outdoor maternity, motherhood and family portraiture with a colorful, dreamy fine-art style. My focus is on capturing the best, most authentic version of you and your family and creating heirloom portraits you will cherish forever.

I believe these milestones in life deserve to be celebrated, and it's so important to showcase the joy you're feeling during this time by making you look and feel absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. I've been told I have a calming presence, and during your photoshoot I do my very best to put my clients at ease (even the most stubborn dads!)

I can't tell you how many times I've heard "we're so awkward in photos!" During your session, you'll be directed in a way that works with your best angles, and keeps you feeling like yourself. I take great care to ensure you're feeling fantastic so that every time you revisit your images you see the beauty that I see.

Creating joyful, emotive images with you and your growing family is what I do best!

quick facts about me

I'm a huge lover of traveling and exploring new places. At least once a year you'll find me visiting Disney's California Adventure and Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks where my husband, Seann and I usually road trip in the late spring or early fall before the crowds hit. Best vacation I've ever had? Our second trip to Maui HANDS DOWN! Nothing beats it. I'm also a dog mom to three beautiful rescue pups who I love and adore.

I am located just south of Seattle but I enjoy traveling in order to provide a custom portrait experience uniquely tailored to each client.

Inclusivity is extremely important to me, and I love connecting with mothers from all walks of life. If you’re searching for the best Seattle maternity photographer, you're in the right place. Get in touch using the contact form below to plan your dream photo session!

A little more about your photographer

get in touch

My passion for photography actually began when I developed an interest in fashion. At one point I thought I was destined to become a fashion photographer. Because of this I treat my photoshoots as if you are the model in a high-fashion campaign. I love to play with poses, fabrics and different backdrops. I tend to avoid cookie cutter poses and props, and instead focus my attention on showcasing the connection between you and your little one.

Maternity and motherhood sessions truly allow me to express creative freedom while creating beautiful works of art for you and your family. The trust my clients have in me to bring out their best side truly makes this so worthwhile!

1. The art

I take great pride in the details. Seemingly small things can make the biggest impact in the end results. Have you ever received photos back where you felt like you looked stiff or awkward? Wish your photographer had told you about the twig caught in your dress or hadn't shot from below the entire time (none of us love a double chin, okay?!) Rumpled dresses, bangs out of place, forced smiles? If any of these are familiar, I feel your pain.

Your photoshoot does not have a set time limit, and often I spend 2+ hours with my clients. The extra time allows me to take care of small things such as arranging your dress, touching up makeup and directing your posing and facial expressions to look soft and relaxed. Turns out, when we're without the constraints of a timed session, it significantly reduces performance pressure!

2. Attention to detail (it's the little things)

Each of your selected photos will be hand-retouched to reflect my fine art, painterly quality and style. I don't simply throw a filter onto every photo and hand it over.

All of your photos receive airbrushing, blemish removal and anything else you may wish for. Each image is retouched individually to create a unique quality and a standalone piece.

Something specific you want retouched? I'm on it! During your booking process you'll receive a survey asking to note any specific things you may be concerned with.

I believe every woman deserves to be pampered and have experiences that make them feel beautiful. Oftentimes when you're a mother, you're so busy taking care of your family it can be hard to take time to focus on yourself. It's okay! It's common, which is why I am so passionate about providing a luxury experience that makes you feel like the absolute goddess that you are.

When you see your gallery for the first time, I want you to feel radiant, powerful, feminine and beautiful. I want you to step back, take some time for yourself and commemorate these once in a lifetime milestones with gorgeous images and an unforgettable experience. Whenever you view your photos, my hope is that you remember how beautiful you felt, and the importance of taking time for yourself.

4. The way you'll feel when you see your photos

back to galleries

How many times have you told yourself you'd print your photos and never actually done so? How many times have you printed them and realized the quality was...not what you expected. Ever ordered a framed photo and realize you wish you'd opted for a larger size?

These are some of the challenges I help alleviate by providing you with custom artwork and an expert opinion. I help guide all of my clients towards the best pieces for their home, whether that be a gallery wall full of memories, or a beautiful heirloom album you can share as a coffee table statement.

As a full service photographer, I want to take care of you from start to finish, including providing you with quality, tangible memories you can hold in your hands and share for a generation.
