I am a newborn, child and family portrait photographer based in Seattle, Washington. I live with my husband David, our two sweet girls, Olive (6) and Iris (3), and our french bulldog, Beans, the queen of the house.
With a fine art, film-based photography background, over the years I have transitioned to digital and have fallen in love with this medium. Shooting in digital allows me the flexibility of working from home with my girls while also giving me that same creative rush I feel in the darkroom when I see an image come to life.
My style is relaxed and editorial in nature, and my photo sessions are all about you. As a portrait photographer, my goal is to photograph you and your children as you are in a real and honest way. I’m not about matching outfits and perfect, posed photographs; I am much more interested in documenting the lovely, often messy and hilarious “everydayness” of your family life. Is your two-year-old insisting on styling herself in inside-out tights with flip-flops for the photo session? Awesome! Are your boys not feeling like abandoning their crazy legos creation for the “golden hour” of light outside? No worries. Let’s capture them doing their thing, being who they are, because this, right now, is the golden hour.
As a mother myself, I know how those spectacular, quirky little things we want so much to remember-- how she carries her stuffed animals inside her shirt all day, the shape of his little puckered mouth when he says, "choo-choo," that sneaky look in her eye before she's about to do something ill-advised-- all of these nuggets fade with time. It's my goal to preserve these little moments and transform them into pieces of art that you can keep forever.
Thank you for trusting me as your photographer, and for allowing me a little glimpse into your life. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your little ones! To book a session, please call 206-617-1532 or email me at email@example.com.

Jaymee has always been an artist with a special eye that captures the moment. She has applied this to her love of photography, children, family, friends and the moments in people's lives that should be captured forever. Nobody is more passionate about their work, and nobody will try harder to bring smiles to the faces of clients......and she does, ALWAYS.

If I could give Jaymee 20 stars I would! She is a brilliant natural talent, and she makes it all look effortless. I was drawn to her breezy, casual photos, where nothing looks forced or overly posed. When Jaymee came to take our family photos she immediately put everybody at ease, and we nearly forget the camera was there. We shot outdoors and the weather wasn't great, so I wasn't sure how they would come out. I was shocked to see how beautiful the finished product was!! The lighting was BRILLIANT and she captured my kids personalities perfectly. She was seriously born to do this, and would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone!!
Jaymee takes amazing photographs that capture the love and warmth in a family. She has a way with kids and adults to bring out the most authentic and candid photographs possible. I would highly recommend her. Plus she gives a portion of her profits to worthwhile causes in the community; icing on the cake!
