Lakewood Baby Photographer, What Do You See?

Lakewood baby Photographer Loraleigh 4 1024x735 Lakewood Baby Photographer, What Do You See?
What I see is a darling baby girl with a bright future!  As a Baby Photographer there are many things that I love about my job, but my favorite is to see parents that are trying really hard to give their kids the best future possible.  Few of my clients probably know that I have a degree in elementary education.  During my years in school I became more and more aware of my passion for children’s literature.  Way back in the high school days I took an exam that was supposed to tell me which occupations I had an aptitude for and would make me happy.  First on the list was being a bee keeper.  (they didn’t ask me if I was allergic to bees)  Second was a librarian.  At the time I felt like those results were so demeaning.  I have since learned better.

We have a room dedicated in my home as a library, with bookcases full of books, soft cozy chairs to cuddle up in and a little table perfect for a studious child.  My husband told me a few years ago that I had a book buying addiction.  So I have slowed things down since then.  I love to read to my children.  They know that if they come to me with a book I will stop what I am doing to read it to them.  Someday I hope to volunteer on a children’s wing in a hospital and read and preform puppet shows for the children.

I asked Loraligh’s parents to bring some of her favorite things just as I do with all of my baby portrait clients.  I am always happy when books are in the tote bag.  I got the set already for this little lady and just happened to open it to her favorite page, which just happened to match her blanket perfectly!  Reading is a gift we give to our children.  It opens up worlds of imagination, teaches them how to command their language, gives them tools to expresses themselves and so much more.  Sometimes people ask me if I am “passionate” about photography.  The answer is that I love it, it makes me happy, but no….not passionate.  I am however, PASSIONATE about children’s literature!

Newborn Photographer Puyallup, Hello World

Newborn Photographer Puyallup L 1024x735 Newborn Photographer Puyallup, Hello World
I have been excitedly awaiting the arrival of Leo.  Nothing feels better than to be able to use your talents to bless friends.  And I have been so excited to be my friend’s newborn photographer!  Three years ago I was a ball of nerves photographing my first baby and feeling like I had no idea what I was doing.  I felt insecure as I held a little 3 day old baby girl in my hands and tried to capture her perfectness.  I was in the home of my friend, Leo’s mother, and she was so patient and together we troubleshooted the problems I was having and I was able to created a few portraits that I am still proud of today.  Last week was a little different.  With a five day old baby boy we were together again, but this time I felt confident.  This time I was excited to create images that were truly art.  I feel like it was a milestone for me.  I am so thankful for Rebecca and the friend and mentor she has been for me.  I wouldn’t have even ever tried without her encouragement.  And my little photography business has been such a blessing to my life and the lives of my family.

Welcome to the world Leo.  You have been born into a cream of the crop family.  You will be so loved and beloved!  I love holding you and breathing in your baby smell.  I love seeing your father busting with pride.  I love hearing your sisters excitedly spinning yarns already about how awesome you are, like being 40 inches tall!  I look forward to watching you grow and seeing you reach your milestones just as I have been able to do with your big sister!

Here is Betsey, my very first newborn, three years ago…

Baby Photographer Puyallup, Big Boy

Will 18 682x1024 Baby Photographer Puyallup, Big Boy
Will is a big boy!  He is also a whirling dervish!  Don’t let his sweet good looks fool you.  He is all about being a boy and nothing can hold him back.  How his Mom managers to keep up with his crazy fast pace is totally beyond me!  I had him in the studio for right around an hour and needed a nap afterwards.  He was so curious and wanted to investigate everything.  Except his cake…

Will was not the least bit interested in his birthday cake really.  The backdrop was more up his alley.  It wasn’t until we gave him a giant spoon that he even wanted to try the frosting.  But once he had the spoon of destiny in is hands there was no holding back.  He even got his feet involved, lol!

I am so excited for Will and his family as they embark on new adventures together.  I am grateful that while they were stationed here in Washington that I was able to be a part of some major causes for celebration.  I will miss you all;-)
