  • The Ellis Family- Bellingham Family Photographer

    Friday, February 16 | Comments

    Kate asked me to photograph her family shorter after Brannon, her husband, was diagnosed with cancer. Brannon is an awesome leader in our church and Kate is the children’s ministry leader, so this family is a really special one. When you go through chemo treatments you tend to loose you hair, which wasn’t too big of a bummer to Brannon because he already shaves his head, but he was sad to have to shave his {amazing} beard a few days after this shoot. So we made sure to give it special attention :] It’s been pretty impressive seeing their cheery attitudes going through all of this, that they can still hold on to a semblance of normalcy. I can’t imagine it’s all that happy in the rough moments at home but I’m still impressed with how they’re handling it. I can only hope I would be as strong as them if we were in the same situation.

    I found an amazing sunny day -sunny days can be hard to come by in February- to shoot our friends the Ellis family and it was a hoot. These kids were cracking me up trying so hard to fight the urge to be silly and Kate left the shoot saying “if you get two shots you’re a miracle worker”, haha. It was such a treat photographing this sweet family!

    Michelle + Max- Lummi Island Wedding {Bellingham Wedding Photographers}

    Thursday, February 1 | Comments

    This is one of those sweet weddings that brings us right back to our roots of shooting weddings 10 years ago. We will always have a soft spot for these intimate weddings on a family property. Weddings where the focus is two people getting married and having a huge party with simple, delicious food and perfectly understated, beautiful decor. Max and Michelle were married on an awesome private property belonging to some family friends on Lummi Island, WA. Somehow, we’ve never been to Lummi Island even though its only a 10 minute ferry ride away! They got ready at the ever so quaint Full Bloom Farm and man, we got a little sucked into walking the property and falling in love with everything they grew. We ran into the owners having iced tea on their porch and chatted with them about the history of their farm. We always love getting to chat with the owners of sweet places like these. Our “some day” dream is to open a wedding venue much like the ones we shoot at!

    After the ceremony Michelle changed into a more comfortable dress and it was beautiful! People ate BBQ and set up tens to camp on the property that night. We headed down to a local beach with the two of them at sunset and we are NEVER disappointed by PNW ocean views. They just feel like home. We came back to groups of people laughing, playing bocce ball under string lights and people gathered around the bon fire for smores and laughs. This wedding was perfectly perfect!

    Our Fall season

    Thursday, January 25 | Comments

    I’ve been putting together videos of our family for years and just recently are kids have become obsessed with them. I made our fall video last night because I need to keep up with their begging for me! I thought I’d share it here! It’s so cute how they’ll all jam into one chair and watch video after video. The birth videos is always the favorite but I haven’t made a public friendly version of that yet, haha! So for now you can enjoy our fall season!

    Our lives in 2017! {Bellingham Family Photographer}

    Tuesday, January 9 | Comments

    We used to do a lot more posts about our lives but somehow that dwindled off, I think I’ll start bringing more of us back into the blog. . So maybe I’ll start with a re-introduction of ourselves. As you know, we are Heather and Grayson Glasby. We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and moved here about 8.5 years ago from California where we were both born and raised. We live on 5 acres of woods,  have 3 amazing kids, 50 chickens and endless projects going, we make things from scratch, bake a lot, chop so much firewood, plant a lot of seeds and drink a lot of hot chocolate on the porch on rainy days.. Our most current one is a tiny house/tree house in our forest, it’s kind of our 4th child. We spend nearly 24/7 together and always have, it’s just the nature of our relationship since the day we met. We are quite literally the other half of each other. We live day to day without too much of a schedule or a plan because we’re both full time photographers and don’t have a normal “go to work, come home” routine. We just ventured into home schooling our oldest who is 6 and that’s been quite the ride. If you’re wondering, we’re choosing to do the Charlotte Mason way of home schooling which is very much nature, play and literature based. We read lots of lots of good books! We let our kids run free in their underwear, climb too high in trees and wander. We get a lot of looks from people, haha.

     

    Our lives are not where either of us pictured them 10 years ago but so much better than we could have planned. We don’t have super nice things or tons of money but we make up for that in good quality time and having a talent for making what we want with cheap or free things we can find. We moved onto our land about 2.5 year ago now and have been living our little dream ever since, renovating to make it our own, building huge vegetable gardens, giant swing sets and random tee pees and chicken coups. We’ve created kind of a kid/adult fun mecca on our property, haha. We rely on thrift stores, free craigs list and random finds on the side of the road to supply most projects we do. We also started a fun little Etsy shop about a year and half back, that’s been awesome and such a good creative outlet!

     

    I hope these photos don’t make out life look “idealized” because let me tell you, we have plenty of hard days and grumpy kids {and grumpy mama and daddy} days, too many nachos for dinner, stepping in chicken poop, and doing projects with kids is HARD and fitting in work is even harder. We work every night after the kiddlings are in bed until about midnight, especially during wedding season. But we wouldn’t trade any of it for all the money in the world. Money isn’t what drives us. You know the phrase “do you live to work or do you work to live?”.. we work to live. To us, God, our family, our friends and our passions are what drives our lives. Not money. We feel endlessly blessed that photography has always been able to be our way of life and supported the lifestyle we’ve chosen. I can’t even imagine doing anything else with our lives, we’ve been doing this for over 10 years and hope to do it for 20 more!

     

    With that being said, here are some of our favorites photos from the first half of 2017! {Im still editing the second half, haha!}

    Best of 2017 Familes {Bellingham Family Photographer}

    Tuesday, January 2 | Comments

    I’ve photographed more families this year than any other year before and it was amazing. I get asked a lot if I ever get sick of photographing the same thing year after year, but to be honest, I really don’t. I don’t feel like I shoot the same thing even twice. It’s always a different family, a different baby, a different wedding.. a different story. That’s the fun in what we do is meeting so many people with different stories as to how they got where they are today. That’s something that could never get boring to me. I love putting together these “best of” posts at the end of every year because I get to look back and pull my favorite moments from each shoot. I’m so excited for what this new year brings and WHO it brings! I hope you are too! Cheers to 2018!
