Mama and Me Photo Sessions

If I had to pick one subject to photograph for the rest of my life it would hands down be mothers and their children. There is just nothing in this world that moves my soul more then motherhood.

My own mom is my best friend. I talk to her on the phone multiple times a day and can’t go a week without seeing her. She is my favorite person to giggle over a glass of wine with and my go to person when any problem arises in my life.

I cherish the photographs from my childhood that I have of the two of us together. There are several in which we are wearing ridiculous outfits that match and the sight of them makes me giggle and fills my heart with warmth.

I hope that the photographs that I create for my clients have this magic for them. That when the small kiddos grow old they will look back at the photos of their mother and smile as big as I do when I see mine.

Mother’s Day certainly falls in the right season. Spring just screams motherhood to me…what with the flowers blooming and new life popping up everywhere. This time of year is a perfect time to exist in photographs with your children  <3

Here  are some of my favorite pictures of my mom and I …I love them so very much. However, I would give a lot now to have professional photos of us in my childhood.







I photographed Madeline and her mother Marybeth on a rainy winter day under a canopy of trees at the Montlake Arboretum. They are both so beautiful and were such a joy to work with.

Motherhood is my absolute favorite thing to photograph and I feel so blessed to have been able to capture these two ladies.

Much Love, Kiana M.









Harper and Hillary

I admire Hillary so completely. I often feel like I’m drowning in my school work and then I see Hillary going to school and being an amazing mother to her little munchkin and realize that I should really quit complaining about my workload and lack of sleep! Hillary is such a beautiful woman inside and out. She is always full of laughter and joy with her adorable baby in one arm and a camera in the other!

To celebrate the beginning of summer I broke out the picnic blanket, some bubbles and (wait for it) a video camera! These are some stills of Hillary with her Harper from a video I will be revealing in August! 🙂 Stay tuned!

Much Love, Kiana M.

Nikole and Alma

One of my favorite things about being a portraitist is the amazing people I meet. Nikole is a beautiful person, mother, wife and works as a midwife! What an amazing job that must be…bringing new life into the world. My brother was born in the house that my parents built and that was such a special thing so I very much admire midwives :). Nikole’s huband, Marco, is a chef from Italy! Amazing! Together they have two of the most adorable children: Jackimo and Alma. I photographed Alma and Nikole together last week and felt so blessed to be able to photograph such beautiful people <3
