This was my third photo shoot with Hayden and my second with both Katie and Hayden together (plus a few with Gus the dog). Taking photos of these two is so much fun because it gives me a chance to capture two adorable girls and to catch up with their mom/Lexi. I was in shock at how grown up Hayden is - I laughed pretty hard when I heard her say (in somewhat valley girl slang) "oh my gosh you guys" - ha! During this shoot, I also discovered a great new backdrop for some summertime photos - the Clise Mansion at Marymoor Park in Redmond and the community pea patch. It was still a bit bright in places to be shooting at 6pm, but I would imagine the early morning and later evening on a clear night would be ideal.
