Lincoln Park -West Seattle, Washington

Lincoln Park | Seattle Momtogs

West Seattle, Washington

 I am a West Seattle-ite at heart.

West Seattle’s Lincoln Park is one of my absolute favorite Seattle Parks. In my early twenties I was employed in West Seattle as a nanny. I spent many afternoon in this wonderful park with my nanny kids. In fact when I was taking  photography classes I photographed many of my first models (mostly nanny kids) here.  I love that things in Lincoln Park have not changed much.  It is just as beautiful as I remember it.

Lincoln Park will always hold a special place in my heart.

Last week I was thrilled to host our forth, yes, FORTH annual Seattle Momtogs meetup in Lincoln Park.

This year we stayed in the upper wooded area and went with a forest theme.

It was a great meetup with  many familiar faces and a few new ones too.

I loved all the light and summer colors the park had to offer this July morning.

Beautiful!

These are wonderful children’s portraits. The photographs have a magical, fairytale-ish woodland feel. I love the forests and parks in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Beautiful images!

I am not sure why, as I barely remember the book, but those first photos of the girl with the fern crown make me think of a childhood favorite book, Bridge to Terabithia. Now I need to go find and read it. Lovely, dreamy photos.

Urška Majer - July 14, 2015 - 4:23 pm

Lovely!

Barb - July 14, 2015 - 4:26 pm

Seattle’s Golden Hour | Magnuson Park

Seattle’s Golden Hour | Magnuson Park

I love my daughter. I love the Golden Hour. I love Magnuson Park (home to Heleyna Holmes Photography) & I  love, LOVE, love Bunnies By The Bay.

I brought all of those elements together last night in a short and sweet session with my youngest.

I was planning on 30 minutes in beautiful golden light…she gave me 12. She must be a Seahawks fan in the making. I took those 12 and ran with them. Below are my favorite 12 images from our 12 minute session.

ENJOY!

Does your little one have about 12 minutes of photography fun in them too? One of my forever friends mini session might be the perfect match for them. Short and sweet and more of a photo journalistic approach. Email me at HeleynaHolmesPhotography@hotmail.com for more info.

Among the Wildflowers – Seattle Washington

Among the Wildflowers

I have had the pleasure of getting to know this little lady well over the last year. She is adventures, confident and has a huge heart.  Always quick to offer my shy Sonja Sue her hand to head off together for an adventure.

She does indeed belong among the wildflowers!

Wildflowers

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, find you a lover
Go away somewhere all bright and new
I have seen no other
Who compares with you

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, go find a lover
Run away, let your heart be your guide
You deserve the deepest of cover
You belong in that home by and by

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worry
You belong somewhere you feel free
You belong somewhere you feel free
