Enebo Photography bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    I began photographing children in black and white in 2000, shortly before the birth of my second daughter.

    Since that time, I have upgraded my equipment, refined my technique, and picked up some new tricks for working with children – but my style hasn’t changed. I like to take pictures that are natural, unposed, and informal. I focus on faces and tend to shoot close-ups. My goal is to capture the little things that represent who the child is in this moment, to bring back memories of a silly face, a fit of the giggles, a particular facial expression or hand position, or a spontaneous hug between siblings.

    I have lived in the Seattle area most of my life. I currently live in Issaquah with my husband and our three daughters, who keep me on my toes and give me lots of opportunities to try out new photography ideas!

    Thank you for your interest.

A Tale of Two Sessions

In May Leslie wrote me an email asking about a senior session for her daughter Reagan.  Actually she was wondering if we could do a short family session first and then do a short senior session after because Reagan was not sure she wanted that much attention paid to her.  I totally understand this because my oldest daughter would feel exactly the same way!  Plus I like the idea of capturing this family right now before they start a new chapter in their lives with Reagan away at college.  It is such an exciting time!

Here are my favorite family pictures…

After we finished all of the family pictures we kicked out the rest of the family (or nicely waved as they drove off) and then set off on our own.  We originally tried to start at the library because Reagan is a BIG reader.  (Hmm…that also sounds just like my oldest daughter!)  Unfortunately it was a Sunday and closed so instead we took the rest of our pictures and then made a quick pit stop at Barnes and Noble.  Gotta love a nice backup plan!

Here are my favorites of Reagan…

They Draw a Crowd

I have photographed Jake and Charlie quite a few times.  Their mama, Sari, owns Booginhead.  I am the lucky photographer that gets to photograph their products and all sorts of cute kids using them!  Charlie and Jake are often the best models so I get to seem them a few times a year.

This time, though, I was only photographing Sari and her kids.  She’s got a new house with new walls to fill and it had been a couple of years since I had done a family photo shoot for them.  This was very confusing to the boys though.  They both asked (separately) ‘When is everybody else getting here?’.  Nobody else was coming.  THEY were the star of the show!

These guys were great about trying out a few different locations.  Such troopers!  Here are my favorites…

Checking Out My New ‘Hood

Family Michelle Enebo Photography Seattle Issaquah ACSenior-5

When I first got my new studio the weather was iffy and I photographed quite a few families inside and it was great.  In between raindrops I even got a few quick shots on the block outside.  Since July, though, I have not even stepped foot in my studio because the weather has been spectacular this summer.  All of my family sessions have been done at various parks around the Eastside.  We have to take advantage of such great weather around here!

I was excited, though, when Alaya requested that we use my studio for her senior session.  She really likes urban type pictures and when she heard about my studio in Pioneer Square she knew that is where she wanted to go.  I love this girl and I’ve photographed her a few times so I knew she would be up for trying almost anything.  That really made it easy for me to start exploring my new neighborhood.  I had a beautiful (inside and out I must say!) and willing model, beautiful weather, a new neighborhood.  What more does a creative need?!?

Here are my favorites but it was SOO hard to cut them down!

Booty Boy

What is it with boys and their booty’s?  Mr. Brady was cracking me up during our photo session.  I could have taken 17 pictures of his booty because he kept sticking it out.  So funny!  As cute as it was, though, I resisted.

Brady and Charlie were so funny together.  This is the first time, in the 13 years I’ve been photographing families, that I had to ask these BOYS to stop kissing each other.  I love how close they are and I hope they stay that way as they grow up!

Here are my favorites from their mini session…

Fall Sessions

Now that the kids are back at school and our schedules are packed with sporting events and fun it is time to think about holiday cards, right?  How about holiday gifts?  (Photos make an excellent gift!)

I’ve got my fingers crossed for our great weather to continue but my studio is ready to go.  There are nine spots left for the whole year so don’t wait!
