Gig Harbor Newborn Photographer ~ Lilian

You don’t know how happy it makes me to get a call from a past client looking to book another newborn photography session for the newest addition to their family!  Being able to be a part of a family as they grow is such a wonderful experience.  I am always super happy when families are adding a baby to their family and the new baby is a girl when there first was a boy and vise versa.  I think that girls and boys offer such different things to a family that it is a real blessing to have both.  When I found out that a little girl was on the way for the H family I was so excited.  I laughed a little when I read their answers for color preferences.  Pinks and purples!  Clearly this family was excited about the little princess that would soon join them!  Preparing for Lilian’s newborn photography session I realized that I need to build up my purple options a little bit more.  Especially in the headband department.  Time to put in some hours on Etsy looking for the perfect pieces.  I tried a pose at Lilian’s portrait session that I haven’t done in years.  In the newborn photography world we call it the potato sack pose.  That isn’t a very glamorous name for such a cute little pose.  I love it of course.  I think next time I need to try it with my little baby bear hat and a teddy.  I am so excited to be sharing a sneak peek of this precious angel’s session with her Mom and Dad.  A friend asked me over the weekend what my goal is for each of my sessions.  I told her, no joke, that it was to have moms cry when they see the images of their babies.  So here is to hoping that these perfect portraits bring happy tears to a wonderful mommy.

Kellan’s Cake Smash – Lacey Baby Photographer

When clients contact me to book their baby’s cake smash session sometimes, in fact most of the time, I sit there staring at the computer wondering how on earth it has been a year since I did their baby’s newborn photography session.  This last week I have been glued to the computer watching a live video stream waiting for April the giraffe to have her baby.  It feels like I have been watching forever, time has moved at the slowest pace possible.  That slow passage of time is mimicked in April’s pacing back and forth in her stall all day.   But for Kellan’s family I am sure that time has passed quickly.  I envision Mom and Dad have quite the workout every day chasing after their little man.  So many wonderful milestones have been hit as this little guy has charged into toddlerhood.  Before I get to sharing the images from his birthday portrait session, here is a little reminder of the perfect sweetness that Kellan was as a newborn.  Click HERE.  Mom and I were both expecting her hungry little guy to dig into his birthday cake.  Maybe it was the feel of the frosting, or his preference for blueberries, but Kellan wasn’t having it.  Naturally I still got some great photos for his family.

Lakewood Newborn Photographer | Brothers ~ Bennett

Photographing a new baby and his big brother were the perfect end to my year.  Bennett was my very last little muse of 2016.  It was so cold at their session that I had to heat the portrait studio with the heaters for two days before his family arrived.  Bennett’s newborn portraits were taken just a few days before Christmas during one of the coldest days of the year.  It was only fitting that we have some Christmas fun styling his session.  I used rich greens and creams with just a hint of red in his pictures.  Bennett’s big brother, Bradley, was a little tentative around his new playmate.  He was very gentle, just not to sure he wanted to be too close.  If the little guy fused, Bradley’s hands went straight to cover his ears.  I imagine though that in just a few very short months, maybe once Bennett is back to see more for his sitting baby session, that the two will be bonded playmates.  I thought it would be fun to look back and compare the two boys.  Here is a link to Bradley’s baby portrait sneak peek.  I love this family.  It has been such a wonderful privilege to be their Lakewood newborn photographer. Here are some of my favorites from Bennett’s session.

They are too cute! Love the shot with big brother touching baby’s toes!

Puyallup Newborn Photographer ~ First Baby, Lincoln

Lincoln’s newborn session was very special for many reasons.  First because his Grandma hired me to be her daughter’s Puyallup newborn photographer.  Mrs. Steck is a household name in our house.  She is one of my 9 year old daughter’s favorite people in the whole world.  Mrs. Steck is her Suzuki piano instructor.  Sara cries when ever she doesn’t have a lesson.  She worships the ground this wonderful woman walks on.  When Sara found out I would be photographing her piano teacher’s grand baby during Christmas break she ran around the house squealing with delight.

Lincoln’s Portrait Session

The most significant reason that made Lincon’s newborn photography sessions so special is what he represents.  Lincoln represents years of prayers, triumph over obstacles, and a future filled with opportunity.  Learning that his parents had struggled to have a baby for so many years pulled at my heart strings!  As I worked to pose their precious little son I frequently caught glimpses of mom with tears in her eyes.  It was all I could do not to sit down beside and have a good happy cry.  All the loss and sorrow can now be replaced by joy and happiness.  What a beautiful gift God finally gave this wonderful family.  Moments like these in my studio remind me how honored I am to be a Puyallup newborn photographer.  When I handle a couples baby I know that in my hands I hold their whole world.  A son at last.  He is their Christmas miracle!

Lacey newborn photographer ~ Little baby sister Liv

It isn’t often that I have a family hire me to be their Lacey newborn photographer.  Having to come through base traffic is daunting, I should know.  My family lived in Dupont for several years and there was nothing that could coax me onto the freeway during rush hour.  Hopefully the times that I schedule to have newborn sessions at the studio make the drive a little easier since I have clients come after the heat of the rush.  Honestly though when you want something badly enough you will do anything.  And I truly hope that clients, like this wonderful family, that hire me to take portraits of their brand new baby girl love my work enough to make the drive.

Liv’s Session

I was so excited to see the S family again in my portrait studio.  I photographed their son a few years ago.  Seeing babies that I have photographed all grown up is a special treat.  Liv’s mom had worked out with me a color scheme for her session.  Pretty mauves and purples and creams.  It was such a perfect Holiday pallet.  Of course we sneaked in a few Christmas themed portraits as well.  You have to do that when you are lucky enough to be blessed with a Christmas baby!  Liv was such a good little girl and her brother was so wonderful cooperative that I was able to take several sibling shots that I know mom is going to love.
