Hello, I am Edlyn, a family photographer based in Everett Washington. It is my mission to make photography accessible to everyone. I have been playing with film, phone and digital cameras for as long as I can remember but didn’t think much of my abilities until I volunteered as a photographer for
Rain City Rock Camp in Seattle in 2013. With the help of the community, I was able to grow in confidence and skill. That journey has brought me here. I am always learning, growing, breathing and looking for ways to help you remember the tiny beautiful moments as we go along. (To inquire reach out via my contact page. I will get back to you within 24-48 hours.)

I charge a non-refundable booking fee, which is 50% of the total cost of the photoshoot. My rescheduling policy is flexible owing to covid-19 restrictions and weather conditions.

Firstly, thank you for considering me. Secondly, it’s easy! Visit my contact page and send me an inquiry. If email is not your cup of tea, you call me on 425-931-7867 and leave me a voice mail. I will get back to you between 24-48 hours. I send you an intake form if you are interested in moving ahead and to confirm your booking, I have a 50% retainer fee which guarantees that you are on my calendar. I recommend booking me 2 months in advance if possible so that you get your preferred date and times for your sessions.
How would you describe your photography style?
My photography style aims to capture candor and I give direction accordingly, so I can capture you in those in-between moments. I give lots of posing prompts and ideas so the photos have as much of a natural feel as possible. No experience being photographed? GREAT! I think you are my ideal client and I would love to help you achieve the photo gallery of your dreams. My editing style focuses a lot on true colours and light. I try to capture the mood as it was, as much as I can while editing.
Do you photograph more than just people?
Yes! I love photographing animals and also inanimate object aka product photography. For pets, I have over 20 years of experience being around them and I would love if you brought them to your session. With product and branding photography, I can help you use photos to tell your story , grow your brand and market yourself to your preferred audience. I am also a self-taught food photographer and I use a lot of what I learnt from there to style or photography products as well. You can check out some of my food photos on my blog egeedee.com
Did you study photography?
No. The best students are the ones who practice and get even better through trial and error. That said, I do have a media background and can confidently say I am an experienced photographer today. I started out as a journalist (editor and writer) and have worked in customer service (big help when working with a diverse group of people). I’ve been making photos since 2005(!) so I felt like this was a good time to do this professionally.
What do you recommend we wear to our photoshoot?
I generally tell people to go with what feels comfortable but since that’s too open-ended, I send out a document to all clients who book me with tips on how to prepare for a photo session. Here are some ideas if you are just browsing the internet and need ideas without having to book me. Family photos: I think your family looks amazing when you co-ordinate outfit colours. Parents, pick a palette and play dress-up within the colour wheel. For example, if you pick yellow and grey, try to add one or more of those colours in all your outfits. If you want suggestions for what colours go well together in my opinion, discuss it with me before your shoot and I will give you some tips. Couples: This is where I say to let you personal styles shine! Keep comfort on top of your list. If you want to wear shoes that might not be too comfortable for standing or walking in, bring a change so you can get out of them as soon as the shoot is done. Same with jackets or a warm item of clothing you can cloak yourself in if it gets cold. Newborn photos: I don’t pose newborns in anything other than their natural states so if you would like to use props, please let me know and I will accommodate them in my shot list. Soft, neutral colours always work with babies so consider your babies’ skin tone and decide what’s best. Headshots: First think of the vibe you want to create through your photos and what your line of work is. For a corporate headshot? Choose professional attire like button-down tops, a blazer, suit jacket, pants or a skirt. Stick to neutral colours but also take into account what complements your skin tone. Some folks might look too washed out in white so in that case, brights like red or yellow would work out perfectly. Try to stay away from busy prints to keep the attention on your eyes. For a more semi-formal or creative headshot, you will have a lot more freedom, which can also feel a lot more restrictive at times. So remember the same guidelines as above but keep your personal style at the top of the priority list.
