Keeping Your Sanity While Photographing Your Toddler

Raise your hand if trying to take a photo of your toddler makes you want to pull out your hair.

Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who has a quiet 2 year old. If so, you are extremely blessed and should thank your lucky stars. Also, I might hate you just a tiny bit.

If you have a rambunctious toddler like I do, take comfort in knowing that all hope is not lost! It is possible to get a good photo. Even on your phone!

Where did the time go?

Does time seem to get away from you the way it does for me? I swear it was just yesterday that Little M started preschool. I blinked once and we're almost a full month into 2018! How did this happen? How does this always happen?

I'd love some tips from those of you out there on how to not let time get away from me! Share your suggestions in the comments below!

Padfoot's Cake Smash Session | Seattle Eastside Portrait Photographer

Come celebrate this Seattle dog's third birthday with a cake smash session by Jennifer Lukes Photography.

As parents, we often do some crazy things for our children. It can make some non-parents raise an eyebrow in bewilderment, but when we see the joy in our babies' faces, we know it was worth it. Maybe even crazier are some of the things we will do for our fur babies.

Mercer Island's Luther Burbank Park | Bellevue Family Photographer

Bellevue family photographer Jennifer Lukes Photography explores the wonders of Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island.

One of my favorite things to do with my family is go on adventures. Now, they're not epic adventures like Frodo's out of the Shire (nerd alert!), but they're always fun!

One of our most recent adventures took us to Luther Burbank Park on the North End of Mercer Island. This park is pretty amazing! It has something for everyone.
