Seattle Baby Photographer ~ Baby Amy

Amy has grown up so much since I last saw her at her newborn session.  What a difference a year makes!  I was talking to her parents during her photo shoot about all the adventures they have had together as a family this past year.  So much happens in such short time.  When you think about it we really do pack a lot of stuff into every little bit of space in our lives as we can.  It was so fun to have Amy’s family back at the studio.  I got to see Liz too.  She was an adorable helper and REALLY, REALLY wanted to be in a portrait with her little sister.  Such cute sisters!  Amy was a little timid.  But it always goes to show how much a little extra time and care can take a session from o to 10.  Look at all the beautiful smiles we got from this little sweetie!

University Place Newborn Photographer ~ Baby Miliano

I feel like I can only be describing Mary Poppins when I say practically perfect in every way.  But as a University Place newborn photographer I see a lot of babies and Miliano was all that.  The most handsome little guy ever.  He is going to have all the ladies swooning when his mom takes him out shopping with her.  I can just see the seen at Target…

One of my favorite times of the year to take newborn portraits is fall.  It is so fun to work the season into sets.  I love the rich colors.  I love the gender neutrality (spring colors and flowers are so girly).  I love how it documents the time of year a baby is born.  I was super happy that Miliano’s mom was cool with letting me add a little bit of the season into her son’s newborn session. Miliano looked like a baby super model with the colors his mommy picked out for his photo shot.  My favorite color on boys is taupe.  It looks good on everyone. My daughter’s favorite image from his session is him posed with his little tush up, wearing the sleepy cap.  My favorite image is this one, where he is in the basket with his beautiful little head resting on his wrists.  Which image is your favorite?

Seattle Newborn Photographer ~ Baby Emalyn

Sometimes a baby is just so excited to see the world the leap through hoops to come early.  Little Emalyn was ready to go.  She had decided that she was done waiting around for that silly due date.  She wanted to be held and cuddle and cooed at.  And so taking matters into her own hands she orchestrated her own early arrival.  Thankfully she was strong and determined.  Though she had to stay in the NICU (detention for early birds), she surpassed all of her doctors expectations.  Like the due date she so earnestly beat, she worked hard to be ahead of the game with every NICU milestone.  What a little go getter she is!  I was so excited when her mommy called to book her newborn session.  It had been several years since I had seen the Berry family.  As Sophia’s newborn and baby milestone photographer I had gotten to know Christina and Nic a little bit.  They are such a fun, easy going family and always a delight to work with in my studio.  Sophia was an excellent big sister.  She is going to have so much fun with a baby sister in the home.  I hope that little Emalyn will continue to be a fierce little kitten and wish her great success and continuing to prove the world wrong!

Lakewood Baby Photographer ~ Marit’s Birthday Session

Once she was a baby….

Just a year ago I was busy doing the newborn photographer thing and photographing this brand new princess.  She was so tiny and precious and such a good little sleeper for me.  I still remember how sweet her big sister was to her.  To look back at her newborn photography session click here.

Now she is a toddler…

Every time I have a mother email me about booking a milestone session for their baby I have to go back and look at their baby pictures to check their birthday because I just can’t believe it is already time for a birthday cake! I have seen Marit a few times throughout the year for mini sessions around the holidays and she still was a baby in my head.  But the little girl I saw at the studio was most assuredly a toddler.  She played, laughed and stood like a champ.  Her personality is unfolding day by day and it won’t be long before she is talking and racing around the house with her big sister.  I think of my girls and how happily they have played together for so many years now and think this is just the beginning for these two beauties.  At only a little more than a year apart they will be so close and share so many things together.  I am so happy they have each other.

My favorite part of Marit’s session what watching her enjoy her cake pop.  Her mom opted for a less messy way to celebrate her birthday and a cake pop was BRILLIANT.  She has shared them with her sister before, but never had her very own.  She was so happy.  So many cute pictures.  It was the perfect alternative to a cake smash.

Seattle Baby Photographer ~ Baby Gabriel

Last week I had the honor as a Seattle baby photographer to photograph a miracle.  That miracle’s name is Gabriel.

Gabriel’s Story

Gabriel’s story starts with the story of his parents and his siblings that came before him and didn’t stay.  Reading his parents blog about the pregnancy and pregnancy lost, I am filled with sorrow and joy.  It is a weird thing to feel pulled emotionally in two directions.  On the one hand there has been so much sadness and loss in the journey that led to Gabriel joining their family.  But on the other hand there has been strength, love, and courage along with triumphant moments.  This little baby is the eight baby but first to be born to his patient parents.  I love that they named their lost children such beautiful names.  Avery Miracle, Hayden Promise, Hadley Hope, and Riley Patience are the siblings that came before and couldn’t stay.  Here are some poignant excerpts from their blog about the experinces with pregnancy that were especially touching to me.

“I wish I could describe all the way God demonstrated his love for us through our friends and family during this process.”

“The moment you were born, I was just overcome with emotion. I sat right down in the rocker after seeing you finally…”

“When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move,
When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through,
When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You,
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!”

“I am not alone,
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me.”

“On Saturday, I stayed strong until Jessi went in for the emergency surgery, then I walked out to the lawn outside the surgery center and cried. What else could I do but cry, and write?”

“So here we are again. It’s just unbelievable. I can’t believe we’re here at the hospital again, here in the same room doing the same surgery that we just did in December. I just can’t believe that this baby isn’t coming to see us either.”

“The Lord really lavished his love on us during this time. He was there in the waiting, in the stillness, in the decision-making, and in the gut-wrenching tears. I am so grateful for His promise to be with us in all things.”

“Call me old-fashioned, but I refuse to let infertility steal away the joy of surprising my family and friends with the news that we are PREGNANT! “

How Gabriel helped to heal my heart:

Yesterday was a hard day.  For me it was a day of years.  Feeling like our world is filled with evil and that there are no more safe places.  Seeing life snuffed out and chaos reign.  I went to bed discouraged and my head pounding from tears that brought no relief.  Today I sat down to write Gabriel’s blog post and as part of that I chose to read much of the blog that documented the long journey that brought him here.  In a capsulized way I mourned with his family and celebrated as they triumphed at last in bringing a baby into the world.  The feelings of peace and happiness that I felt have healed my heart a little bit.  When I think about Gabriel and the miracle that he truly is it brings me hope and courage.  His names translates to “God is my strength”.  How beautiful is that.  We must all take strength in the light that is there is our lives.  There is always light.  Even in the darkest of moments and reading a blog about pregnancy loss has shown that to me very clearly.  There are good people.  Strong people.  Parents that will teach their children to make out world a better and a safer place.  There is joy felt to the very soul when in the presence of innocence.  Gabriel is innocence.  He is hope. He is joy.  And he is just plain darn cute to boot.

Gabriel’s Session:

I am so honored that in some very small way, by being his baby photographer, I have been part of his joyful arrival.  What a privilege it is to meet this strong little muffin.  He was full of smiles during his portrait session.  His mommy had told me that he was trying his hardest to skip the sitting phase and go right on ahead to standing.  So we had a props ready so that he could pull up and show off his strong little legs.  I was struck by his big beautiful eyes.  You could get lost looking into those eyes.  Makes me wonder what he is thinking because they are so expressive.  So I got a few closeups.  I am so excited to share his portraits with his family and loved ones.  Here are my personal favorites from his session.
