Gig Harbor Baby Photographer ~ Hudson, Cake Smash

Every year on my birthday I get an email from my mom and usually a facebook post from at least one of my sisters with this picture attached.

It is the worst!  Literally!  Why oh why weren’t professional portraits of babies and toddlers a thing.  Every year for 40 years this picture has haunted me on my birthday.  It’s always center stage on my facebook page.  Does anyone leave a comment letting me know I was adorable (which I was, the cutest baby ever)?  Does anyone comment on what an excellent picture of me this is?  No they can’t get past the glaring yellow beanbag.  Pictures and make or break you people.  And parents that care to invest in pictures their children won’t mind gracing wedding slideshows or plastering social media for the rest of their lives are parents that truly get it.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  And you want those words to be…

What a cutie…

so adorable…

he is so handsome….

awe…

Hudson’s parents truly understand the power of a beautiful portrait.  Not only are Hudson’s one year portraits bound to get all sorts of accolades for cuteness overload now, but in years to come they will do the same.  I am a big fan of living in the moment pictures of real life at home.  But they should be balanced by portraits that are classic and lovely.  Posed portraits have a major role in history keeping.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to be Hudson’s Gig Harbor baby photographer.  He is perfection now.  And with these beautiful portraits of him his parents will always remember him this way.  When they look back at his one year portraits they will remember all the things they love about him.  Not their prehistoric TV, ghastly yellow beanbag and green stag carpet.

Puyallup Maternity Photographer ~ Vanessa

“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited.

Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”

Anne Christian Buchanan

I love this quote because it so beautiful states two truths that I believe in heart and soul as a Puyallup maternity photographer.  There is no other time when a woman is more womanly than when she is pregnant.  Pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood are the crowning glowing of womanhood.  It is the right of passage that boosts you into the throngs of Goddesshood (I made that word up). The other truth, that a woman carrying a child is “vitally alive”.  Two lives protected by one body.  And that body as it preforms biology’s greatest miracle is so perfectly gorgeous you have at one in one form the perfection of both nature and art.  It is such a privileged to be a maternity photographer and to be a part of documenting the greatest miracle on Earth and the most beautiful rite of mother nature.  Vanessa is stunning is a way that makes you victim to the mesmerizing powers of her strength and womanhood.  She is a masterpiece.  She is a life giver.  A Goddess.  A woman.

Seattle Baby Photographer ~ William

William will be one in January.  I bet his mommy is wondering where the time has gone.  Those doe eyes will soon be sparking with mischief and merriment.  It all seems to happen with unpardonable speed once babies learn to walk.  And I bet William is only a few months away from reaching that milestone.  But for now we get to celebrate his newness still by photographing him doing all those little baby things that babies do; like playing with toes, sucking thumbs, teething and big gummy smiles.  William is everything a little fellow that is half way through his first year should be.  Perfect in every way.  He is the happiness and joy of his family.  It was a pleasure to meet his mommy and to be her Seattle baby photographer.  I hope I was able to catch some of her favorite things about her baby son.  I loved his big hazel eyes and that great big smile.  He was such a pleasure to work with and I am so excited to share all of the wonderful images that I was able to get during his session!  Enjoy a sneak peek and my favorite pics of sweet little William!

Kirkland Baby Photographer ~ Logan’s Cake Smash

Where did all of that beautiful red hair come from?  I had to go back and reference Logan’s newborn portraits after his session.  I was thinking, how could I have forgotten such beautiful hair.  But seeing as this little prince was mostly bald as a baby I am sure that gorgeous head of hair was a surprise to his parents as well.  Logan looked so handsome for his portrait session, he has such bright eyes and an easy smile and growing big and strong so fast.  Already, he has outpaced his older brother at the same age.  That cute little outfit big brother wore for his birthday portraits was a little snug on Logan.  This little guys session was rocket themed.  He had the cutest cake with little gold stars and an awesome rocket candle and a banner for the backdrop.  Surprisingly, Logan wasn’t interested in the stars so much.  I can confidently say that 8 out of 10 of the babies that have come to see me for cake smashes in the past would have sat by that beautiful cake and one by one picked off every star.  But this little man was all about the chocolate frosting.  Fast first into the cake he went taking giant licks with his tongue.  We even broke the cake open for him to show him there was yumminess inside as well.  Nope.  This one wanted chocolate.  He got some on the tip of his nose and spent the rest of his cake smash looking like a cute little puppy.  Happy Birthday little muffin!  May all the chocolate cakes be yours!

Snoqualmie Baby Photographer , Taylor’s Cake Smash

Sharing is caring.  At least that is what they say.  But to image that a one year old has any capacity for sharing is quite the stretch of the imagination.  At that age, there typically isn’t anything further from the truth.  But Taylor is extraordinary.  She has a capacity for sharing that I have never seen matched by any toddler even close to her age.  I wonder if that means she is going to be some super awesome woman some day, running a “real” non-profit out there saving the world.  I called it right here folks.  I wouldn’t be surprised.  She wanted to share EVERYTHING.  We took a portrait of her in a set with all of her mommies fun jewelry.  She handed me her bracelet.  We took a picture of her with her mom’s super awesome green fancy shoes (I WANT) and she tried to pass them to me when her mommy wasn’t looking.  Also, she is a mind reader, lol.  I put together a set where she got to hold flowers.  It was all I could do to avoid flowers in the face as she tried to share every single one she could get her hands on.  And naturally she wanted to share her cake with me.  Handful after handful of cake was sweetly presented to me.  I’m sure she left wondering why I didn’t want any of her pretty and in the case of the cake, yummy, things.  I just love her.  She is only one and has a bigger better heart than most of the people in this world.  If only we could all be a little more like Taylor!  Happy birthday little princess.  You are going to do BIG things someday!
