a morning with maya

Maya’s family basically left me speechless when explaining how they found Miss Freddy.  “I saw my coworker’s family photos displayed in his office and asked ‘where did you have those taken?  I MUST have some for my family too’!”  Come on…. the ULTIMATE compliment!  (((blushing so hard))) There are so many things I love about that...

olivia – west seattle baby photos

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…. photographing babies who are happy and not yet mobile is absolutely THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD.  And sweet, sweet Olivia made my job easy.  She was a jumble of smiles and silly facial expressions.  She was happy in tummy time, sitting unassisted and especially being lifted...

photo editing: everyday images (taken by you!)

This year I’ve been devoting one week a month to a themed blog series, with daily blog posts.  I’ve talked all about project life, shared some ‘wish someone told me sooner’ parenting advice, written about ways to preserve your memories/photos, revealed our favorite things in West Seattle, and this week is ALL ABOUT PHOTO EDITING!...

spring mini photo sessions in seattle: the recap!

The second annual spring mini sessions were a hit!  The weather can be so iffy in March so I almost didn’t offer them (that’s a lot of pressure on the forecast & a pain to reschedule so many families… lesson learned last fall!)  But, we tested fate and won.  It was a (mostly) dry day in Bellevue...

cade is one! – west seattle baby photographer

Hmmmm… it’s going to hit 80 degrees today so it feels a little strange to be scrolling through images of a cute family in snuggly sweaters, but, really, this session wasn’t all that long ago!  Little Cade (love his name!) turned one earlier this year so Mom & Dad wanted to do updated family photos to...

home for the holidays

My first session of 2016.  After a super busy October-December, January is usually reeeeeally quiet around here.  Most families get their updated photos before their holiday cards go out and don’t have much need for another session in January.  An occasional newborn will get me through the ‘off season,’ but this sweet family had a...

emmett & madison

I met Emmett & Madison’s mom during our early months in Seattle.  She’s an authentic, life-long Seattleite and these days, in a city booming with transplants (hi there!), those aren’t so easy to find.  She has really helped us feel welcome in this city and I can always count on her to recommend THE BEST...

what to wear for mommy and me photos

I’m sure you have a childhood memory of your mom forcing you into an outfit you did NOT want to wear.  It may have been a little too matchy-matchy with your sibling.  Or, it was a miniature version of your mom’s outfit (oh, the horror!).  Now, as a mom, I can see the entertainment value...

akemi & quinn

I figured since the weather here in Seattle has been like summer (seriously, how amazing is all this sunshine?!?!), I should balance it out with a little throwback to a session from this winter that was right in the THICK of an intense rainy season. This awesome family has been in front of my camera...

jesse, henry & ryan

I was blessed to meet this sweet momma (and all her good looking boys) through our church a couple years ago [you may remember their session from last winter!].  Jesse (the oldest) is a year older than my Colin so this momma had lots of helpful advice about things I was struggling with when we’d...

what to wear for summer family photos

Is anyone else not really sure about what season we are actually in right now (at least in Seattle)?  I put away the winter coats a month ago when the temps were in the 80s.   But then we visited Vashon Island two weeks ago and I was shivering on the beach in my raincoat & started losing...

meet hudson – west seattle newborn photographer

This was my very last session of 2015 and it was the perfect way to wrap up the year.  I first met this family a couple years ago at my Valentines Photo Booth… when big brother Connor was just a baby!  It’s been fun to watch Connor grow up (he’s the only kiddo I’ve seen at...

preserving your memories: organizing videos

Is it really Friday already?  It’s been quite a week!  To recap, we’ve talked about how to safely handle & store your family’s photos, how to quickly scan photos to create digital copies, how to back up those digital files, and how to create photo memory books.  But for this final post in the ‘preserving your memories’...

preserving your memories: photo books

Ok, so now that we’ve created digital copies of all our photos, what should we do with them?  Sure, they’re properly backed up on the computer now, but will anyone ever see them? My favorite way to USE my digital photos is to create photo books.  I create one family yearbook each year that houses all of...

preserving your memories: backing up digital photos

If you’ve been following along through this series, you now know how to properly store your photos and quickly scan them to create digital copies.  Today I’m going to share my advice on how to backup digital photos! By now I think everyone has their own heartbreaking story of loss.  For me, it was shortly after I...

preserving your memories: scanning old photos

Remember the ‘olden days‘ when you’d carefully snap photos on a film camera (for me, it was usually a disposable one), wait for the roll to fill, then wait even longer for development?  Finally, with a stack of photos in hand, you’d flip through them and laugh, picking your favorite to frame or pin on...

HI, I’M MISS FREDDY.

 

Actually, my name is Casey. As a newborn I resembled Fred Flintstone so my parents nicknamed me Freddy and it stuck. I am a professional photo organizer (yes, that's a thing!) who helps people all over the world make sense of their photo mess through organizing services and self-paced online courses.

 

I want to help you ENJOY your photos again!
