I am always so happy for families who are adding a baby girl to their family. Having three daughters myself I know what a wonderful blessing they are. This wonderful family hired me a few years ago to be their son’s Gig Harbor newborn photographer. What a wonderful surprise it was to hear from them earlier in the year to hear they were expecting again and this time awaiting a little princess. Daughters are the hope of a future best friend. I have seen myself making a change as the years go by and my girls get older. I used to need a night out with girl friends in order to fill my tank and refresh and renew myself. Now those times more often than not have been replaced with hanging out with my girls. We enjoy good movies and good food. We shop at the same favorite stores. My love of musicals and ballets is enthusiastically shared by three eager girlfriends. While I still crave a night out on the town with my adult girlfriends I see a future where my girls meet that need more and more. I look forward stories about their first kiss, their first love, and their adventures at college. I can’t wait to watch them become mothers. Having a daughter is like adding a little bit of magic into life. All the singing, dancing around the house and endless hours of playing make believe. It just makes me so happy for this wonderful family thinking of all the magic that is in store for them. Little girls truly do put the color into your world. They say that angels are disguised as daughters. It is so so very true!
Babies are such a blessing! They are a fresh start. The promise that our world can and will be a better place. They are the hope of happiness, friendship and love. When I meet a family that has hired me to be their Seattle newborn photographer I am lucky enough to know I am privilege to be a part of documenting my future. As I held this perfect angel I knew I was holding in my hands the hope for a bright future, the dream of peace and the promise of happiness. When you cradle a baby you know that the world will go on. My job as a memory keeper is to help parents bottle up all of those wonderful feelings and to preserve them in a photograph. What you are feeling now are the happiest of times. There isn’t anything better. The arrival of a happy, healthy baby is the very best gift that nature offers to us. When you hire a Seattle newborn photographer all of that happiness is your forever. Just a glimpse at a perfect portrait of your days old baby will bring you right back to that happy place each and every time. I create time machines.
Here are the details!
Please read them so there won’t be any surprises as this is not your TYPICAL mini session provided by a photography studio.
We have constructed an awesome indoor tree farm set for you! No worrying about planning around the weather of stressing over mud puddles. Stay warm, dry and happy at our Christmas minis!
My daughter Emily and her friend Rachel, need to earn money to get themselves down to Peru next summer where they want to serve a service mission to build a new school, practice their Spanish and spend a day sight seeing. The amount of money they need to earn is a little overwhelming. This idea was born while brainstorming how to help them make this happen themselves. These girls are amazing with kids, and have a lot of photography experience. Here is how it will work.
There will be several 10 minute time slots available to choose from. Signing up is first come, first serve.
Click HERE for the schedule!
When you go to sign up for your slot you will be required to pay your $20 fee up front. That way we won’t have any no shows and loose valuable spots to people that don’t come. I will be using Paypal as the portal to collect the session fees. You do not have to have an account. You can use your credit card without having an account.
If you are lucky enough to secure yourself a time slot, all you have to do is select your little one’s outfit and wait until Saturday.
We will see you at the mini session event on Saturday. Please have your child come in their outfit so that we don’t loose any of your valuable time.
Here is my studio address: 12426 136th Ave E Puyallup 98374 Please park on the street so that you don’t get blocked in.
Emily (my daughter) and Rachel (her BFF) will be working in the studio to capture that one perfect picture of your sweet heart. I will have all the equipment set up for them. Basically they will be working as a team to coax a bright smile out of your youngster and to push the shutter button on the camera. I will be there the WHOLE time and overseeing ever session. But I want the girls to do the work. Remember this is a FUNDRAISER! Imagine pictures with Santa in the mall, but having super fun girls, a professional who cares about your portraits and 100% of the proceeds going to an excellent cause! You win because you get to come home with a super affordable and excellent quality Christmas portrait, and we win because your contribution helps these girls reach their goals.
There is only one child per portrait time slot. YOU CAN HAVE SIBLING PHOTOS AT THE CHRISTMAS MINIS! I know that now Christmas picture is better than one of all your kids together. Sibling shots are only available if you have purchase individual shots of your kids. If you have three children, and you want pictures of them together you have to grab and pay for four time slots (one for each child and for for the sibling shot). Babies MUST be sitting on their own if you are bringing them for a portrait.
Also, something a little new. Your pets are welcome if they have excellent manners and you think they will cooperate for a portrait.
Pictures will be edited over the next few days and delivered by November 23rd. In perfect timing for Holiday cards!

We are excited to see you there!!!
This is our future. Every bit of everything good we have needs to be placed as a seed in these perfectly innocent future leaders. She might be a future President, Doctor, Engineer, Teacher or Mother. What ever she become she will lead. What we teach our children is the most important job any of us have. They will become what they see, what they hear and what they experience. Let’s teach them love. We need to show them courage and strength with integrity. Little children need a safe place to grow up, to learn and prosper. Let’s give them that. They are our fresh start. I see Nora and at first I see a sweet sleep cherub. When I look harder I see our future. Love her. Protect her. Encourage her.
Happy birthday to this handsome little man! I am so happy his parents hired me to be his Auburn baby photographer because he was so pleasant to work with. Parker was 100% comfortable in the studio and it was so easy to coax a smile out of him. What a blessing he must be to his family because he is so good natured. Parker is having a Spider Man themed birthday party to celebrate his one year milestone. Super fitting since he has a super hero name. His cake was so awesome that after taking a picture of him with it we carefully wrapped it back up so that it could make its debut at his birthday party. I can’t wait to get this wonderful family the images from their son’s portrait session. He is such a charmer! My hope is that clients will always remember to print their images. These adorable portraits of Parker need to be up on the walls of his home and in the hands of his loving family! Pictures have no value if they stay on a CD in your drawer!
