Tacoma Baby Photographer ~ A Mouth Full

Puyallup Baby Photographer A 5 1024x736 Tacoma Baby Photographer ~ A Mouth Full

Seriously the only thing that slowed this busy little toddler down was a mouth full of cake, lol!

Two little eyes
Discovering what’s new
Two little hands
Touching everything in view
A sweet little voice
Asking you why
A mischievous smile
And a whimpering cry
Two little feet
Jumping on the floor
A toddler’s mission
is to explore.

-Author Unknown

And explore she did.  We sang, played music, played and tried all sorts of tricks.  Buckets could not contain her, my smile makers didn’t interest her she just wanted to learn about everything at the studio.  So little Audrey got to play and when ever I saw an opportunity I snapped away.  I can’t wait for her next year.  She is going to be so much fun.  I can just imagine trips to the Children’s museum, learning how to color, pumpkin patches, Christmas presents….  It will be a feast of learning for this sweetly busy little lady.

I love cake smashes.  Babies are so funny when they get around frosting.  I get to see them on their very first sugar rush.

And then I get to see their very first crash, lol!

I have the best babies that come to see me.  I love being a baby photographer.  Koben has grown so much since his newborn session.  His still has that perfect creamy skin he sported at just a few days old!  He is such a little butter ball.  I swear parents could drop their babies off for the day so I could play and snuggle and get some portraits too!  I really wanted to just sit and snuggle this handsome fellow!  He was so curious, eyes wide open following my every move.  And what a flirt.  Every time a talked to him he smiled, dimples and all.  He stole my heart.  I am so excited for him and his family.  They will be traveling to Puerto Rico soon to show off their newest addition to their family.  I told his mommy to keep an eye out.  So twitterpated auntie just might try to steal him!  I know I would!

Puyallup Newborn Photographer – Daddy’s Boy

Newborn Photography Auburn 1024x736 Puyallup Newborn Photographer   Daddys Boy

Being a newborn photographer I get to meet all sorts of men and women fresh to their roles as mother and father.  It is kind of like being that fly on the wall.  Some are stressed.  Most sleep deprived.  A few are lost with all the newness and change.  My favorites are the ones that are over the moon in love.  This is Alexander, lovingly nicknamed Lex.  He came into the world in a flutter of emergency.  Nearly gave his Grandma a heart attack and succeeded in wearing out his Mom and Dad to the point of utter exhaustion.  But like the old English proverb “in like a lion out like a lamb”, he has proven to be a total sweet heart.  You wouldn’t have any idea he insisted on making such a grand entrance!  I love the way his Dad put it.  ”Every time Roxanne would push he was climbing his umbilical cord trying to crawl back in!”  Speaking of his Dad…

This little guy is the apple of his eye.  I love when I have doting dads at portrait sessions!  He had a smile from ear to ear.  He wanted to help any way he could.  Watching the way he held his son and looked in his eyes with that tender look melted my heart.  Lex you are a lucky boy!  Because you are your Daddy’s Boy!

Roxanne that may just be the nicest thing anyone has ever said. Thank you so much;-)

Roxanne Dudley - September 26, 2013 - 1:05 pm

I don’t know how you do it, but you are skilled at making me cry!! I am positively blown away by how beautiful these pictures are, and your words about my husband towards my son are truly magnificent. I cannot thank you loudly enough or long enough for making such a special occasion (the birth of my first child, especially after the struggle we endured to have him), absolutely unforgettable. You are a true artist, with more talent than I have ever seen. Thank you again, and again, and again!!

Fairy Child

JWP Fairy Image Fairy Child

Sharing something other than newborn photography today.  For over a year I have been following the work of Heather from Fairyography.  She amazes me.  Every session is sweet.  She has magic powers as far as I am concerned.  I don’t think I have ever know someone so creative.  And she has a heart of gold too.  Last year she asked if I wanted to be part of a Cinderella collaboration.  I wanted to badly, but I let my fear of trying something new own me.  Watching those portraits come out my heart sank.  I should have tried.  But I was intimidated.  This year with a theme like “Fairy” (I am crazy about fairy lore) I had to be brave.  I stressed for months about it.  I had so many wonderful ideas.

In the end I suffered from procrastination and indecision.  I wanted to create something so stunning.  I had ideas about driving to gorgeous locations in Oregon and the Hoh rain forest here in Washington.  Life always gets to busy!  So on the day before I left town I ran to Michaels, bought lots of pretty things and went to work.  I wish I had hired a hair and make up artist.  But this is what an hour of throwing together a costume looks like.  I figured I wanted her to look a little wild so it was OK that we were winging it, lol.

On my bucket list I have fairy portraits with the great Heather of Fairyography.  But for now the girls have to make due with Mom.  This is Kate, my second daughter.  She is 9 and this IS “her”.  She is wild and sweet.  She is a free spirit.  A deeply thinking artist.  She loves animals with a protective spirit that I have never seen in another child.  I love her.

Check out the other amazing work from the artists that participated in this collaboration.
