Seattle Baby Portraits ~ Sisterhood

I hope one day these sweet girls will feel this way about their special bond…

Being Your Twin Sister

I’m just going to tell you because it’s what I really believe,
That being your twin sister is the greatest thing I’ll ever achieve.
Every single moment with you is one I’ll forever treasure,
The bond we have with each other is one that nobody can measure.
Knowing someone like you is special and very rare,
You are my only constant, the one that’s always been there.
you held my hand when I was scared,
You got me ready when I wasn’t prepared.
You carried me when the journey was long,
you fought my corner, even when i was wrong.
You brought me back and helped me land,
you held me up when I couldn’t stand.
You really amaze me, everyday,
With your tender heart and loving way.
I regret the way I treated you, you deserved so much more,
I really hope you’ve forgiven me, It shames me to the core.
There is so much more that i could say if I could only find the sentence.
Right now all i can do is offer you my repentance.
You are my rock, my everything, with you I’m safe and sound,
You’re the guy i can always lean on, the force that keeps me on the ground.
You’ve been here all my life and i know we’ll never part,
I guess i just wrote this to tell you that i love you with all my heart.

Seattle Baby Portraits

It was so fun to see these two sweeties again.  They have changed so much from the day I saw them months ago when they came to see me for Seattle baby portraits.  Each little lady is growing into her own beautiful personality.  They were so much fun to photograph.  I can’t wait to see them come back for cake smash portraits!

Seattle Baby Photographer ~ Miraculous

“Once there were two women who never knew each other
One you do not remember, the other you call Mother
Two different lives shaped to make you one
One became your guiding star, the other became your sun
The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it
The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it
One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name
One gave you a talent, the other gave you aim
One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried you tears
One made an adoption plan, that was all that she could do
The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you.
Now, which of these two women, Are you the product of?
Both, my darling, Both, Just two different types of love.”
Julie Anderson

Seattle Baby Photographer

My clients this past week were celebrating the adoption of their brand new baby girl.  Their story was so wonderful to hear.  How they waited, how they were told a baby was waiting for them, the miracle of naming their baby all the details were so wonderful to hear about.  I love that being a Seattle baby photographer means that I get to meet so many wonderful families and hear the stories of how their babies came into the world, whether that be through bearing a baby themselves or through adoption.  Each and every story is a miracle!

Adoption is such a beautiful thing.  That a woman choose to give a life instead of ending one is just the first of many difficult decisions that a birth mom makes.  I have often thought about the first moments of reaction that an adopting mother has when she first hears the news that another woman has decided to make her a mother.  After months, years of waiting to have a situation totally out of your control end with such a perfect beginning.  There must just be a tidal wave of emotions.  I am so happy for this baby girl.  She will have be so very loved.  It was such an honor to be her Seattle baby photographer and to capture her innocent and perfect beginnings!

Tacoma Newborn Photographer ~ Tula 9 Days New

A sister is someone who loves you from the heart,
No matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart.
She is a joy that cannot be taken away,
Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.

I am so excited that I got to be Tula’s Tacoma newborn photographer.  I have been following along with her mommy’s pregnancy on facebook and anxiously awaiting her arrival so that I could take beautiful baby portraits of her.  It was just last year that I was hired to be her sister Zoe’s Tacoma newborn photographer.  It always feels good when a family comes back.  Watching Zoe interact with her brand new baby sister brought me so much joy.  Zoe is the youngest sibling I have every photographed with a brand new baby.  I was a little worried about how she would do.  Halfway into Tula’s session we brought Zoe in for her turn to take pictures.  Zoe was a dream.  She was loving a gentle and just the very best little lady a photographer could have ever hoped for!  I could have photographed her with her sister all day long.  I am so excited about the portraits I took of the two baby sisters together.  And even more excited to share them with their mom and dad!  Newborn photography is about capturing special moments like the blossoming relationship between sisters.  I am so glad that I get to be a part of that.  I will look forward to keeping in touch with this wonderful family to witness the blossoming of that precious sisterly relationship.

I hope that their little friendship will continue to grow into something beautiful and sweet.  Sisterhood is one of those relationships that can create such a strong and significant bond.  Being so close in age they will get to explore and grow together.  They will be blessed.

Auburn Baby Photographer ~ Character

Being an Auburn baby photographer means it is my job to capture character in a baby’s portraits.  Moms and Dads want to be able to look back years from now and through the images I create remember just how goofy, silly, sweet, tender their toddler was.  It is all about capturing that little personality and budding character in that moment.

Nolan was full of charm.  His smiles are so beautiful.  With each and every smile his little tongue came out to complete his grin like a cherry on top of an ice cream Sunday.  I knew as their Auburn baby photographer I needed to capture that smile for them.  It wasn’t easy to get the smile just right and get his eyes still open.  He smiled with his whole adorable face, which made his eyes wink shut.  When his parents see these images from his session they will remember that day with me in my photography studio.  His mom will remember laughing with me as we watched time and time again that little tongue sneak out to grace his smile.  I am not posting that perfect smile picture her on his sneak peek blog post.  For that you will have to head on over to my facebook page.  I love it so much I wanted to share it all on its own.

Lake Tapps Baby Photographer ~ Ben’s Birthday Portraits

If ever there was a mother meant to have a house full of children it is Meghann.  I have been her Lake Tapps baby photographer throughout the first year of her two babies.  She wins the most frequent visitor to my studio award.  I feel like over the last few years as she has come to see me for maternity portraits, newborn pictures and photo sessions to document her baby’s first year, that I have gotten to know her.  Seeing her on my shooting schedule always makes me happy.  We have so much in common and if she lived closer, and if I had little people the same ages as her children, I know we would be good friends.  Seeing her with her babies is food for the soul.  She is so patient, so tender, so absolutely in love with them.  Meghann is the quintessential mommy.  I wish everyone could have a mother just like her.

As Ben’s Lake Tapps baby photographer, it was my job to capture his little one year old personality.  He was full of smiles, until we brought out the cake.  I think everyone has the conception that all babies love their first cake.  You see the images from cake smash sessions and assume it was all rainbows and unicorns, lol.  But the truth is that most babies are not really all that excited about being in a photo shoot with a messy cake.  It is super sweet, sticky and 100% foreign to them.  The good news is that they are still curious.  And even if they don’t go face first into their cake, there are still great portraits to be taken as they investigate the sticky mess sitting in front of them.

I am really going to miss seeing this lovely family.  All in favor of baby #3 in the future say AYE!
