Puyallup Baby Photographer ~ Mila’s Birthday

It is funny that we are only celebrating Mila’s first birthday!  She is a beautifully tall young lady and already wearing 2T clothing.  By the time she is 8 she will be taller than me, and so lovely with her warm smile and twinkling eyes.  Daddy and Mommy have a really beautiful daughter to love.  My favorite part of Mila’s cake smash photo shoot was witnessing her love for a very special teddy bear.  When her Grandpa passed away her family made a teddy bear out of one of his t-shirts and gave it to her as a happy memory of him.  It was often times how I got her to smile.  I would hold up papa bear and she would give me a big, beautiful smile and wave at us.  What a sweet and meaningful idea that was to create such a special heirloom.  I have many clients who come in for photography sessions with their toddlers and they bring their old teddies from their childhood.  I image a beautiful portrait in the future of Mila’s little girl with her own teddy bear and her moms.   We also had a little cake smash at her photo shoot.  It is such a fun way to celebrate the end of a big year full of big milestones.  Mila was a bigger fan of her bath afterwards than she was of the sticky frosting on her cake.  I suppose I like a nice warm bath better than cake too.  Happy birthday to a sweet little beauty!

Tacoma Baby Photographer ~ Mila

One year older and one year wiser!  Mila is celebrating her first birthday with a cake smash.  She was a rock star with her itty bitty ponytail and spunky personality.  Her mom made a beautiful cake for her.  I am always so amazed by the talents of my clients.  Who has time to learn how to pipe roses onto to cake?  Some moms are just born with all of the skills.  It’s too bad babies most the time don’t know how to appreciate the yummy dessert being placed before them.  For most it is their first experience with cake.  Sometimes a little touches the frosting and that is just the end.  It is so sticky and gooey and won’t come off their hands.  Not all babies love their cake smash cake.  But I ALWAYS (with the exception of one little girl) manage to get great cake smash pictures.  Mila will be having her family birthday party in just a few short days.  I wonder if her second experience with cake will go even better.  My bet is that she will be eating it by the fists full.  Happy birthday to a beautiful little lady!  I hope her next year is filled with wonderful experiences and people!

Gig Harbor newborn photographer ~ Keira

Keira’s parents hired me to be their Gig Harbor newborn photographer.  When I met there family I was so excited to be working with such a pretty baby girl.  And then I met her big sister.  This family has been blessed with a wonderful gene pool, lol.  Keira’s mom wanted me to use some pretty pinks for her sessions and specifically requested that I photographer her beautiful baby girl handing from my cherry blossom branch.  I was a little nervous about making that happen at the beginning of Keira’s portrait session.  In order for me to do a hanging branch shot, two things need to happen.  First baby needs to be a very sound sleeper.  Second baby needs to be easy pose.  Keira didn’t start out being either of those things.  It took a little snack time with mom and some swaddling and cuddling from me and I was eventually able to coax Keira into a good little nap.  And that hanging branch shot, for which I am so well know was a piece of cake!  It is the most requested shot that I do.  And this branch in particular I think is the most lovely.  I hope her parents will print an awesome 24×36 canvas and hang it over her crib in her nursery!  I am so blessed to be a Gig Harbor newborn photographer!  I love creating beautiful portraits for families.

Easter Mini Sessions!

Bound For Peru!

Emily and Rachel have some great news!  They are going to PERU!  The stress of registration is over.  They both grabbed spots to their first choice of mission trip and will be headed to Lima Peru to build a school on July 12th!

Thanks to all of you and your amazing support the last year and half they have almost raised all the funds they need.  This will be their last fundraiser session together.

In less than 100 days they will be headed south of the Equator on the greatest adventure of their young lives (I am SUPER jealous in case you were wondering).

When you come to visit us for Easter portraits you are welcome to bring candy bars or deflated soccer or volleyballs for them to share with the children they meet.  They girls will have a little donation bucket handy.

Can you feel their excitement?

Easter Minis…

Easter Mini Sessions

Here are the details for Easter minis this year.

We have a special visitor coming to the studio.  Nutmeg the bunny is super excited to meet all of your children.

Mini session spots are $20 for a 10 minute time slot with the girls.  This includes one digital image.  If you want more than one picture please bring cash with you to the studio.  Each additional picture is $20.

When choosing outfits to coordinate with the set, pastels will look best.

Images will be edited on Monday and delivered on Tuesday, April 4th.

-Babies must be sitting.  If they aren’t sitting then please don’t schedule until the next mini session.

-One child per image. If you want sibling photos you have to reserve a spot for each child on their own and then an additional one for the sibling photo. (for example if you have three children and what a sibling shot then you need to reserve 3 time slots)

-Because bunnies can bite and scratch no one will be holding Nutmeg.  He will sit on the prop next to our little guests.  The kids can pet him and check out his cute little wiggly nose.  We wont be feeding him treats either, so don’t promise your kids they will be holding or feeding the bunny.  Following these rules will keep Nutmeg and your kiddos safe during their visit to the studio.

Here is the address to my home studio:

12426 136th Ave E

Puyallup WA 98374

Here is the scheduling link!  Can’t wait to see all of you!

Auburn Baby Photographer ~ Teddy

When I had my first baby I couldn’t stop myself from pushing my son towards milestones.  I tried helping him learn to sit, we practiced walking as soon as possible, I corrected all of his sweet little baby words.  I was in such a hurry to rush from one milestone to the next.  With my last baby I had finally learned how to make the most of motherhood.  Who cares how long it took to potty train, that’s what pull ups were for.  Why was I in such a rush to have her walk?  By then I knew that a sitting baby is the holy grail of parenthood.  I was in love with her sweet baby words, why would I want them to go away, they would in time and I would miss them.  By baby number four I had learned to enjoy the moments and let time run it’s own course.  One of the reasons that I love limiting my baby milestone sessions to sitting and birthday portrait sessions is that I feel it does help slow down the clock.  I remember constantly booking appointments at Sears (because they were the best when I was having babies) for pictures.  I was constantly busy.  Those pictures were all so cheesy and absolutely did not represent my children during their babyhood.  When I photograph a baby I want to include their toys, their favorite things and I want to see who they are shining though the images that I create.  Often times, I have moms tell me that their baby has this certain little quirk.  I know that my goal at their session is going to be to capture that on camera.  Teddy’s parents hired me to be their Auburn baby photographer because they trust me to do that.  Little Teddy had come to see me as a newborn and it was so wonderful to see the adorable little toddler he has blossomed into.  I photographed him with his favorite books, his favorite truck and his families heirloom teddy bears.  These pictures will have extra meaning to him and his family because I didn’t just put him in a bucket and snap a picture.  Including Teddy’s favorite things makes all the difference.
