Hello and welcome! We are Stormy and Michael, a husband and wife photography team in Bellevue, Washington, serving the Greater Seattle Area and the Pacific Northwest.
We are overjoyed that you are considering us to document your special life event or preserve sweet memories with your family! Please see our different portrait session offerings below and find out how we go above and beyond to help you make the most of your session and photos :)

First of all, Stormy is a one of the kindest person in the world! She GENUINELY cares about you and desires to take photos where you are looking your best (plus she will tell you if your smile or stance could look better which we loved!) We love the style of her work that brings out the natural beauty and color. We had to re-schedule a few times due to Covid but throughout the whole process she was understanding and flexible which made things a lot less stressful during these difficult times. We are thankful she was able to accommodate the needs of our elderly family members and made the whole experience for us extra positive and fun!! Overall, she is amazing!The experience was incredible! Everyone should go hire her now

Here's the tldr: You want to hire Stormy Peterson Photography.
Stormy and Michael exude friendliness, warmth, joy, and they bring that care and passion to the shoot as well as to the final photos. Their work has always exceeded our wildest expectations. Family and friends say that our engagement photos are some of the best they have ever seen, and I could not agree more. I love the lightness and effortlessness of our photos. I cannot speak highly enough Stormy Peterson Photography, and I confidently recommend them to anyone and everyone.
I highly recommend booking with Stormy. She did a magnificent job capturing my big family. Stormy had to work with 8 kids and was very patient with all of them. She also genuinely cares about how your photos will turn out and will inform you if something doesn’t look quite right and will recommend a position change or some type of adjustment to bring out the best of you. Stormy is so nice and sweet and it is very contagious! Our photos were beautiful and I will be booking with her again in the near future! Thank you for everything Stormy!
Erin & Paul
Stormy is such a pleasure. Not only are her photos outstanding but she really takes the time to listen to your ideas and goes out of her way to make the process enjoyable. Stormy gives perfect instructions to make the most out of the time she has with you and so she can guarantee beautiful pictures. She has done both our maternity photos and newborn photos and both are breathtaking. I will cherish them forever. Will continue to use Stormy for big lifetime milestones!!!
All The Little
I love capturing the joyful and genuine emotions that people feel during such special events in their lives. My aim is to deliver photos that you'll cherish for a lifetime where you can see and remember how you felt in that moment through your photographs. Whether you're welcoming your bundle of joy into the world or wanting family photographs that you'll cherish for years to come, my goal is to walk you through everything you need to know to make the most of your photos. So, let's get started!
In the PNW, we have plenty of location options by bodies of water, in the mountains, at beautiful parks, and even in your own home. After booking, I'll send a list of suggested locations that I ADORE so you don't have to worry about researching the perfect spot for your photos! Depending on the location, you can expect for your session to be scheduled 2 to 3 hours before sunset (or right at sunrise) for that soft, dreamy light.

Outfits play a huge role in how your photos turn out. After booking, you'll receive my portrait session style guide that I've made to make your life so much easier! My style guide goes over which colors photograph well, how to complement your body with outfits, and even how to prepare your kids and/or man for our time together :)
Now for the fun part! I specialize in making your photos an awesome experience for you. I guide you through all of the poses so you never have to wonder if you look amazing or not. My goal is to make you feel comfortable the entire time and for our time together to feel like hanging out with a friend, not just a photographer.
After pouring love into your photos, you can expect to receive your full online gallery within 2-4 weeks. On average, you can expect to receive about 30-40 images from a typical one hour session.
In addition to your full gallery, you'll also receive a social media sneak peek 2-3 days after your session and you'll be featured on the SP Blog!
I'm a strong believer that photos aren't meant to stay on your computer; they deserve to be printed and enjoyed for a long time. My online gallery offers professional prints that are perfect for wall photos or adding a sweet image to your work desk. For extra special keepsakes, I offer heirloom albums that you will treasure and pass down to future generations.
