Fairy Child

JWP Fairy Image Fairy Child

Sharing something other than newborn photography today.  For over a year I have been following the work of Heather from Fairyography.  She amazes me.  Every session is sweet.  She has magic powers as far as I am concerned.  I don’t think I have ever know someone so creative.  And she has a heart of gold too.  Last year she asked if I wanted to be part of a Cinderella collaboration.  I wanted to badly, but I let my fear of trying something new own me.  Watching those portraits come out my heart sank.  I should have tried.  But I was intimidated.  This year with a theme like “Fairy” (I am crazy about fairy lore) I had to be brave.  I stressed for months about it.  I had so many wonderful ideas.

In the end I suffered from procrastination and indecision.  I wanted to create something so stunning.  I had ideas about driving to gorgeous locations in Oregon and the Hoh rain forest here in Washington.  Life always gets to busy!  So on the day before I left town I ran to Michaels, bought lots of pretty things and went to work.  I wish I had hired a hair and make up artist.  But this is what an hour of throwing together a costume looks like.  I figured I wanted her to look a little wild so it was OK that we were winging it, lol.

On my bucket list I have fairy portraits with the great Heather of Fairyography.  But for now the girls have to make due with Mom.  This is Kate, my second daughter.  She is 9 and this IS “her”.  She is wild and sweet.  She is a free spirit.  A deeply thinking artist.  She loves animals with a protective spirit that I have never seen in another child.  I love her.

Check out the other amazing work from the artists that participated in this collaboration.

Tacoma Newborn Photographer ~ Life, A Beautiful Story

I edited Adelaide’s newborn portraits while listening to some really lovely piano music.  It was poignant.  I thought about her parents holding her for the first time.  The moments of bonding together in the hospital.  That triumphant moment when Dad probably carried her through the door of their home.  I envisioned tears, hugs, mother rocking her against her breast.  It was like an amazing cinematic story unraveling in my mind as I edited her images.  A beautiful moment.  Just as scientist haven’t been able to create life in a test tube, Hollywood can not capture those truly magical moments that happen in families.  She is tiny, only a few days old…but already she has brought magic into at least two lives.  She has started to write her own story and already it is beautiful!

Happy Birthday Connor!  Every once in a while I have very active babies come to see me for portraits.  Connor was definitely one of them.  By the end of his session I needed a shower and a nap.  An energy drink would have been helpful too!  Parents always worry when their little ones are a little harder to wrangle.  I always try to put them at ease.  Like many of my pint sized baby clients this handsome little fellow was very curious about the studio.  His little eyes were taking it all in.  He wanted to walk over and check everything out.  And pictures were definitely not on his to do list.  But patients all wins.  With a patient and helpful mommy you just can’t go wrong.  We had to be quick to catch him before he was on the go again, but we did it, together.  This image is my vary favorite.  He has sure grown since his newborn session.  Here’s to hoping his Mom will love this one as much as I do!

She is perfect.  And now she will be part of a perfect family.  Just hours after this portrait was taken at the studio her awesome Daddy proposed to her Mommy.  Now that is a PERFECT day!  I am SO excited for this wonderful family and the bright, bright future they have to look forward to.  I love it when high school sweethearts tie the knot.  It is so romantic.
