Auburn Newborn Photographer ~ Matteo

Auburn newborn photographer

Matteo’s parents hired me to be their Auburn newborn photographer and I finally got to meet little Matteo when he came to see me two weeks ago for his first baby portraits.  I love that I get to be a part of celebrating the arrival of a new baby with so many wonderful families.  This handsome newborn baby boy is named after two of his uncles.  No pressure uncles, but that means you had better be the very best uncles ever.  I wonder who the favorite will be, lol.  What a beautiful way to honor your brothers.  I love when babies are given family names.  I think there is power in a name and most certainly in words.  I hope little Matteo will be blessed with all of the best things his Uncles can offer and teach him.

I got to photograph Matteo right before leaving on a Spring break vacation with my family and have been super excited to return home to edit the images from his newborn session so that I could share them with his family.  I think my favorite is the upper right image in his sneak peek collage.  Although the bottom middle is a super close runner up.  Which one is your favorite?  Please let me know in the comments.

When you are a baby your world is as simple as two things.  Happiness and sadness.  Sadness when you are hungry, messy, left alone, have to go to bed, mommy won’t pick you up and the list can go on and on.  Happiness for everything else.  A leaf, a ladybug, ice cream, going for a walk, snails, kitty cats, frosting and cheerios, mom and dad and silly sounds.  There are just so many, many things.  As a Lakewood baby photographer it is my job to try to find what makes each and every one of my little clients happy so that I can catch on camera their perfect little one year old smile.  Most the time I have to coax it out expertly.  Because as a Lakewood baby photographer my studio is filled with big, strange and different things and let’s just face it, that puts a baby more on the less happy side of life.  Some babies are just tough eggs to crack and the elusive smile never appears.  But not Tova.  I felt like she was living the advice of Little Orphan Annie, “you are never fully dressed without a smile!”  Tova smiled from ear to ear throughout her whole milestone portrait session.  All it took was smiling back at her.  I loved it.  What a happy little peanut.  I’m so excited to have been a part of celebrating and recording her first birthday!

Auburn Newborn Photographer ~ Theodore

I am so excited that Theodore’s family asked me to be their Auburn newborn photographer.  I love that my home studio is so convenient to so many freeways, because it means getting to meet so many wonderful families from all over the Tacoma and Seattle area.  Theodore was my third newborn in a row to give me a sweet little smile during his portrait session.  I don’t know why I have been so lucky this month.  But I love it.  If only there was a secret to guaranteeing a smile!  Wouldn’t it be so great if all I had to do was tickle their feet?  Working with Theodore was wonderful.  He was such a good sleeper.  Like most new babies I had to negotiate with him about his hands.  Even in sleep babies just want those little fists clenched shut.  He won some and I won some, so over all I would say we mastered cooperation, lol.  I am so glad I had the grey furs out for his session because that last image in the bottom right corner is my very favorite (notice it is a Theodore for the win picture).  I love how the grey accentuates his glowing newborn skin.  What a little miracle he is.

Lacey Newborn Photographer

Just a few short years ago Kellan’s parents sought me out to be their brand new daughter’s Lacey newborn photographer.  I can’t believe I just got to photograph her brother.  He is going to be the luckiest little brother around, because his sister is so sweet with him.  I wanted their sessions to be styled with a similar color scheme so that when Mom and Dad hang portraits on the wall they look perfect together.  So I used the same blue theme and the same blue bucket.  If you want to check out big sisters sneak peek from her newborn photography session click here.  Their pictures are going to look perfect side by side.  I have been so blessed at my last two or three sessions to be able to capture some really amazing baby smiles.  Check out little Kellan.  I think he was super happy to be all snuggled up.  It really is amazing how much a newborn loves to be swaddled.  I wish I had the swaddle skills I have now when my kids were babies!  Can’t wait to here how this little guys mom and dad like his portraits!

It has already been a year.  Can you believe how fast time flies.  It seems to me that little Liz was just in my studio for newborn portraits.  Here she is if you want to check her our as a tiny, brand new little princess.  She was beautiful then and even more beautiful now.  There are so many wonderful first to celebrate in a baby’s first year.  I hope when her parents look back at these pictures from her Seattle Baby photography session that they will remember the first time she looked at them and really saw them.  The first time she smiled at them and it was a real honest to goodness, genuine smile.  I hope they remember her baby giggle.  The chubby hand that used to old their finger as she learned to walk.  The feel of her head full of curls as she slept on their chest.  Those little tiny teeth that grew in to fill in her smile.  Her first word.  Her joy upon seeing them as they came home from being away.  Just so many joys!!!  All celebrate a life well lived and loved.  Happy birthday little Liz.

If you have a little one about to celebrate their first birthday be sure to schedule a portrait session today!  There is no better way to celebrate.
