Seattle Baby Photographer – Mona Lisa

Baby Photographer Seattle Tacoma Puyallup Clara 5 Seattle Baby Photographer   Mona Lisa
Clara is one of my little newborn clients that has come back to see me for a cake smash session.  I am so lucky to be her photographer!  My clients have the most beautiful babies.  Just look at her.  She is 100% perfect.  She is the baby version of Mona Lisa!  Her smile is there but discrete.  But her eyes…  Her eyes look right into your soul.  There is so much depth there.  I think that babies are so much more intelligent than we give them credit for.  Their little bodies just can’t keep up with them.  This picture is going to be uncovered in some beautiful chest in an attic one day.  Some little girl is going to blow off the dust and marvel at how stunningly beautiful her great grandma was as a baby.  I am honored that I got to take that picture!  Happy birthday Clara;-)

Puyallup Baby Photographer – Sleep Baby, Sleep

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Puyallup D 1024x735 Puyallup Baby Photographer   Sleep Baby, Sleep

Sleep, baby, sleep
Your father tends the sheep
Your mother shakes the dreamland tree
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep

Sleep, baby, sleep
Our cottage vale is deep
The little lamb is on the green
With snowy fleece so soft and clean
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Down where the woodbines creep
Be always like the lamb so mild
A kind, and sweet, and gentle child

Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep

Puyallup Newborn Photographer – Smile

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Puyallup K 1024x735 Puyallup Newborn Photographer   Smile
I love when local families to me here in Puyallup hire me for newborn photography portraits.  I have this little hope that I will run into their families while out shopping (hopefully not on a day when I am in my pajama pants and my hair is piled up on my head) so that after seeing their little one as a baby I will be able to have little peeks and glimpses as they continue to grow.  I can only imagine that little Kate is going to grow to be a beautiful happy little girl.  If she is smiling like this at just a few days old, just imagine how sweet she is going to be a year from now.  I can just see her skipping down a grocery store isle by her mother’s side, blond hair swinging with each step, with a smile just like this on her face.  I hope that I get to see that!  Congrats to her wonderful family on a perfectly sweet addition to their family!

Nostalgia

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Puyallup Jack 61 1024x735 Nostalgia
Newborn photography is all about capturing a baby’s innocence.  This is one of my favorite poses to do just that.  We grow up with the images of storks delivering precious bundles of joy to expecting mothers.  I have scenes from Dumbo burned into my memory.  There is something nostalgic about images like these.  You see sweet baby Jack snuggled into his little sling and your arms want to reach out and cradle him.  If you are like me and adore babies, you see this and your heart jumps out of your chest.  I told Jack’s parents that he was too perfect to fuss over with a camera.  All I wanted to do was hold him.  Whoever said you can spoil a newborn with too many snuggles clearly left their heart on a park bench somewhere during their commute in life.  Jack you are the very best special delivery ever received by your parents.  (I bet your mommy wishes you had been brought by the stork though, lol)

Renaissance Muse

Maternity Photograper Seattle Tacoma Puyallup Sarah 2 Renaissance Muse
Sarah came to see me for her maternity photography session from my old stomping grounds in Dupont.  I was so excited that she chose to have maternity portraits.  It has been a long time since I have gotten to create stunning images for a mommy to be!  I missed it.  When I think about my “maternity portrait style” I know exactly what I want it to be.  I want it to be like the beautiful Renaissance sculptures I grew up seeing in Italy.  My Mom and Dad bless their hearts dragged me from museum to museum, to cathedral to cathedral.  Everywhere, I was immersed in the artistic awakening that was the Renaissance.  I grew up with the art of the masters.  Their favorite subjects were women.  And not the super model, waif thin idea of woman we celebrate today.  The women that were muses to the masters had curves and the men that painted them, the men that sculpted every curve and fold made them Goddesses eternalized by there artistic expression.  A woman’s form is perfection.  The curves of a woman’s body ebb and flow lulling your eye into a trace until you have been wooed by her beautiful form.  I haven’t captured an image like this ever.  I love it so much I keep pulling open Sarah’s folder so I can see it again and again.  I am absolutely head over heels in love with the simple feminine beauty captured here.  Sarah you couldn’t possibly be any more beautiful;-)
