Picture Perfect

Bryce 28 of 29 Picture Perfect
I am so lucky to be Bryce’s baby photographer.  He is a photographer’s dream.  Full of smiles and little laughs : -)  The year has passed so quickly, I can’t believe how the time has flown since I was taking his newborn portraits!  I have kept in touch with his Mom through facebook for this last year; enjoying the pictures she posts and the updates on the milestones that he reaches.  He has such a beautiful smile I was so excited to have him come visit me in the studio again.  I love birthday sessions.  They are so much fun, a wonderful way to celebrate such a busy year of learning and growing.  Just for kicks, here is little Bryce at just a few days old!

Good People and Sweet Babies

Last year I met and learned with one of my favorite photographers Jamie Schultz.

Workshop 3 of 14 682x1024 Good People and Sweet Babies
While there I photographer this sweet little girl and met her very cool and talented mother.

Workshop 59 of 14 682x1024 Good People and Sweet Babies

I have worked closely with MJ over the last year as she has helped me design some graphic design pieces for my business.  And last week…

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor Mo 1 Good People and Sweet Babies
I got to photograph her precious daughter Morgan.

I am a true believer that when you surround yourself with good people, you meet more good people and they help you to be a good person.  This chain is one that represents the power of womanhood.  We care, we reach out, we take care of each other.

I am so excited for MJ and her family.  They have another beautiful daughter to bring their family happiness and joy.  I am so grateful that I have had a link in this chain.

And The Award Goes To….

Baby photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor K And The Award Goes To....
Knox!  For his full belly, totally contagious, make you double over….laughs!  When Knox came in for his baby photography session he was a little timid at first.  I don’t know what changed, but after a little bit he was laughing to his hearts content.  I have never heard a baby laugh like Knox.  If there were baby Oscars and “laughing” was an award to be had, Knox would win hands down.  Such BIG laughs for a little fellow.  He had me laughing along with him.  I told his Mom that it would be hard to avoid the temptation not to totally exhaust him by making him laugh all day long.  The sound was just that enjoyable.  It has a magical ring.  So on that note please enjoy my favorite little quote about laughter:-)

“When the first baby laughed for the first time,

it’s laugh broke into a thousand pieces,

and they all went skipping about,

and that was the begining of Fairies.”

-J.M. Barrie

Time Flies

Baby Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor Rilynn 3 1024x736 Time Flies
Babies grow too fast.  Life moves at an alarming speed.  One minute you are holding a brand new baby girl and the next she is walking around ready to take on the world.  I love being a photographer.  Our memories fade.  But photographs can take you right back.

I was just at the store having a piece of art framed.  The customer in front of me was an elderly gentleman, feeble and bound to a wheel chair.  His wife had just wheeled him in to get his approval on a matting choice that she had made.  He spoke to her haltingly and looked tired from all of his years.  His wife rolled out a wrinkled and cracked black and white panorama photograph.  From my distance it looked to be a photograph of a military unit.  Instantly, he came to life. In a state of excited animation he began identifying past friends and their time spent together.  That photograph had flipped a switch.

Our children grow in the blink of an eye.  Life keeps us so busy.  It makes me happy that Rilynn’s mother will never forget her tiny little one year old frame, her spunky smirk and twinkle eyes full of curiosity!  Time may fly but the memory will endure….forever.

Wild Thing

baby photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor Hudson 6 1024x735 Wild Thing
Baby photography is a funny thing.  Sometimes it takes on a mind of its own.  I will have something in mind and as mom adds in a few personal touches and baby’s personality starts to shine through, what I envisioned turns into something totally unique.  I wondered how these images would turn out with the eclectic styling.  A favorite shirt and hat mixed with rustic vintage pieces and my love for moody lighting ..not your everyday baby portrait.  And then I saw them and I loved them.  Seeing little Hudson here like this (especially in his favorite hat) reminds me of Maurice Sendak and “Where The Wild Things Are”.  Hudson wasn’t really a “Wild Thing”, he did want to walk and explore everywhere.  But seeing him here in his hat I can imagine the box is a boat and he is sailing off to another world full of fanciful creatures.  Welcome to the world of little boys!
