Kid-Free Family Photo Shoots - How We Help Adult Couples Have Fun and Relax

What do we do during a Seattle maternity portrait session when there are no kids to play with? Photo shoots with kids and dogs are relatively easy because we can just focus on them and the awkward or camera shy adults don't feel like they're under the microscope. But when the only child around is still inside the belly, then the spotlight is on mom and dad. Never fear! The Happy Film Company is here with years of experience photographing weddings, couples, women's boudoir and headshots. We know how to help adults relax in front of the camera and what's more, we actually know how to have just on adult-only shoots. Without the kids, we don't have to worry about diaper bags or pouty lips. We can still make goofy faces and skip down the street but we can also whisper dirty secrets in each other's ears that force a little giggle or blush. We can also get all artsy-fartsy and cover more ground (because we don't have little legs trying to keep up) and find really cool locations and funky backgrounds. We can experiment with creative poses (sometimes kids limit the poses we can do because they're so squirmy. We can recreate your wedding photos like the Karlson's did during their maternity photo shoot at Kirkland Marina Park. This is a photo they're going to recreate for the rest of their lives and as kids join the family, they'll just find their spot in the photo too! Oh and when it's just adults, we can actually have an interested conversation (without little hands pulling on our shirts) and get to know each other better as people, which helps us all feel more relaxed which results in better photos. So whether you're dating, a family of two, almost a family of three or desperate for a babysitter so you can go on a photography session datenight, the three of us are going to have a fun time taking photos. You can book the same family photography session that we sell on our website as the "Family Photo Shoot" for couples and maternity shoots. If you have any questions, shoot em over to Thanks so much Karlson family of 2+1 for such a laid-back morning shoot this summer! Can't wait to see you again soon for the = 3 photo shoot! :) - Chamonix

Hansen Family's Edmonds Beach Walk - Maternity Photos Seattle - the Happy Film Company

Where were my flip-flops? Why am I always losing my shoes every time I do a Seattle family photography session at Edmonds beach? haha Last time they were being swept away by the tide. This time they were camouflaged in the sand. I was barefoot and balancing on driftwood as I asked the Hansen family to stomp their way through the tall beachy grass for their maternity photos. Their daughter, Alexis, was so cheerful and I am totally ga-ga for how adorable she was when her parents tickled her and made her giggle. The Hansen family is friends with Judi & Paisley who had a gorgeous mother-daughter finger-painting photo shoot earlier this year. I always have so much fun photographing families that get referred by our mutual friends! It's fun to see our network web grow and 100% I end up loving them too!! Thank you so much Hansen family for spending some of your precious Seattle vacation time with the Happy Film Company for your maternity photos Seattle! We can't wait to photograph you again one day in the future as a team of four!!! Congratulations again! :) xoxo Chamonix & the Happy Film Company team!
