Enebo Photography bio picture

    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.

Summer Catch Up


A rainy October day is the perfect time remember our summer activities, right?  I realized recently that I haven’t shared a lot of these pictures on my blog and I definitely want them to make it in my blog book at the end of the year.

So take a walk down memory lane with me and think warm thoughts!

We did lots of hiking this summer.  Some went by choice, some went by bribe.  Whatever!  It’s good exercise and good to be outside!  Hikes with friends and cousins are much more fun than hikes with mom, but I don’t take it personally.  The dog thinks hiking with me is awesome!

IMG_5880_blogIMG_5871_blogIMG_5944_blogIn preparation for her backpacking trip Jill happily accompanied me to the top of Poo Poo point.  That is a HARD hike with an amazing view at the top.  Did we take pictures of that view?  Nah!  We decided to play with silhouettes instead.  THAT was totally worth all the work!


We also had plenty of fun down at the creek…


We only made it to Jetty Island once this year and it was super windy, but super fun too!


Now that my parents have sold their dock (okay, the house was sold too) we had to find a new spot to watch the Blue Angels.  Nailed it!


The girls had a great time with the Enebo’s for Camp DDD…and Allen and I got two date nights in a row.  Woot!


A lot of frisbee was played this summer.  Jill picked it up from her friend Colin and was determined to play well so she was often asking for the crew to go to the park with her.  (You can tell Ellie and Ava are really into the game!)


We went to the State Fair for the first time.  What took us so long to get there?!?


I finally caved and let Kate color her hair.  Since Kool Aid didn’t show up in her hair we went all out and use Lusty Lavender hair dye.  It’s no longer lavender but a lovely shade of pink at this point.


The girls ended the summer with a backyard campout that the girls planned and executed on their own.  The only detail they didn’t cover was Mother Nature because she dumped rain on them during the night.  Best laid plans!

IMG_6403_blogOkay…we now bring you back to your regularly scheduled fall activities.

Kate & Jane | Family Portraits


Miss Jane just turned one so we celebrated that milestone with a photo session to capture all of her new tricks.  Right now PJ is the best thing since sliced bread so in order to get this girlie to walk all we had to do was get her Daddy to hold his hands out for her.  I love those first Frankenstein steps!


Since these girlies are growing up we were able to go to one of my favorite locations to capture some fun.  Sometimes it’s sad to see babies grow so fast, but there ARE some advantages.  The one downside to this location, though, was the easy availabilty of foliage.  Jane tried to eat every leaf she could get her hands on.  She particularly favored the red ones.  Maybe she needs more ruffage in her diet?

Here are my favorites.  (Please note that no parents were harmed in the making of these pictures.  They just didn’t want to be on the blog!)


I Was Give the Gift of Time. Woot!

The calendar’s gods have smiled down on me and given me the gift of time!  (Or maybe it’s the just the soccer schedulers?)  I’ve got two new openings in my schedule so if you are still looking for family pictures, gifts and/or cards contact me quickly!

Carson & Amanda | Family Portraits

Small Family-106_WEB

Last year we did urban type portraits of Carson and Amanda but I photographed them close to home.  TOO close to home so there was the possibility of having friends drive by and see us.  Oh my.

This year I brought them to my studio in downtown Seattle and it was amazing how much more natural these kids were.  They didn’t mind wandering all around Pioneer Square and they had much easier smiles.  We even got their dad in on a few pictures too!

Here’s a sneak peek of my favorites…

Max, Cooper & Griffin | Family Portraits

Having these boys on my calendar is such a treat.  Not only do I wait with bated breath to see how their mom will dress them,  (Seriously, she should be a professional stylist!) but these boys are so charming I love hearing what they are up to.

Since I have been photographing them since Cooper (Mr. Mohawk) was just a wee babe they all know me and know how I work.  Poor Adam (otherwise known as Dad) just knows I will drag them all over shooting here and there.  He also knows I’m a horrible over shooter.  Towards the end of our session I asked these guys to go into yet another alley and it was obvious he was just about done with me.  He said ‘If I didn’t know that you already had a lot of good pictures of us I wouldn’t say a thing.’  That cracked me up.  He was totally right and I am going to make their picture choosing extra hard this year!

Thanks for putting up with me Adam!  Here’s your sneak peek…

Just in case you were thinking of hating these guys because they were too perfect I am sharing one more.  I thought it was funny and might actually be a little more like real life!
