Protector

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Dupont Micah 5 Protector
I love the whole idea behind this portrait.  When Grace came to see me for her maternity portrait session I knew that I would want to create something like this when she returned for her newborn photographer session.  Two things made me think about posing her this way.  First she has such stunning hair.  Honestly who wouldn’t want to use those gorgeous locks to the best of their advantage in a portrait.  I could have posed baby Micah all day long with his beautiful momma.  Second and more importantly I could tell from meeting Grace that first time that she is a good mom.  She was so patient.  Micah’s big brother wasn’t all that excited about letting his mom have a turn in front of the camera and he huddle by her feet as we tried to work.  But not once did she lose her cool, expend her patience or show any signs of frustration.  That is a wonderful mommy.  I wanted to give her a portrait with her second son that embodied that trait.  She is a protector.  Not just the kind of protector that keeps their child safe from running out in the street.  The kind of protector that safe guards feelings, the essence of childhood, relationships and the bond of love.  With her hands delicately keeping Micah cuddled close and her soft smiling face snuggling his, he will know that he is loved, cherished and safe.

Brothers

Newborn photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor M Brothers
Sisters need sisters and brothers need brothers.  That is just the honest truth.  Sometimes you are lucky enough like baby Milo to have a big brother at home.  Sometimes you find siblings outside your home in the form of best friends.  I am so excited for the future that lies before Sawyer and Milo.  I can easily imagine them conquering the world together;  playing with dump trucks and making big holes in the back yard, building train tracks throughout the house, wrestling, playing soccer…the possibilities are endless.  I never understood the world of boys and men until I got married.  Seeing how much my husband looks up to his big brother and seeing the responsibility he feels to look after his younger brothers makes me smile.  I know friendships like that are in store for these two.  Milo will find in Sawyer a hero!

Sitting Pretty

Baby Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor C Sitting Pretty
Caitlin is sitting pretty.  She has been coming to me this past year for baby portraits and she has mastered modeling.  She is ready for a career in front of the camera raking in the big bucks.  Especially now that she has mastered the “Mona Lisa” smile.  I am so excited to see even just the merest hint of a smile from this gorgeous little cherub!  We had so much fun tasting frosting and smashing cake that I was able to capture her in a mood I have never seen her in before.  She wiggled and giggled and SMILED!  It was the perfect grand finale.  I love developing relationships with my clients and I feel like little Caitlin is part of my family ( someone to share your cake with).  I am so excited to be sharing in the fun of her birthday celebration.  Stay tuned on my face book page for images from her cake smash tomorrow;-)

Sleep Is For The Birds

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor K Sleep Is For The Birds

Krystof was the most wide awake, alert baby I have had come in for a newborn photography session ever.  He was so strong too, which amazed me for such a little fellow.  He was holing his head up like a three month old.  As I held him I couldn’t help but laugh as he would look up at me with wide awake eyes like he was calmly enjoying our conversation.  He kept fouling me too.  His eyes would start to get heavy with sleep and then he would start to nod his head occasionally letting it rest on my shoulder.   But the moment I laid him down in my nest of warm fluffy blankets he would pull out a little yarn to shrug off the sleep and then look at me wide eyed as if asking me what was next.  As the session progressed I wondered how this little fellow could be so present and aware when I myself was starting to feel the lull of sleepiness.  There is no doubt in my mind that at this point in little Krystof’s existence he most definitely believes that sleep is for the birds!

So true. He still thinks that sleep is overrated:) Thank you Jeniffer for having patience with him, the pictures are beautiful. Love his big yawn.

One Of A Kind

Baby Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor MT One Of A Kind
They may be twins but they are one of a kind.  Emma and Claire came back to see me for a baby photography session last week.  I can ‘t believe it has been a year since their newborn session!  I remember when photographing them as tiny babies that they already had very different personalities.  And that is still true today.  As I have been editing their session I have thought back to how BADLY I wished I were a twin when growing up.  I think it was just part of the 80′s, but still true today.  Twins are cool and you always wish for what you don’t have and what you are not.  (Still waiting to grow a little taller)

Back then I thought that if I had a twin I would have a partner in crime.  More than that she would be someone just like me.  We would want to do the same things, play the same games and love the same toys.  My twin would always agree, have my back and take my side in every argument.  I guess I was picturing life with a twin being like having a duplicate of myself.  That would be awesome.  I would have a sibling I would never fight with, a constant companion and playmate!  But as an adult I know I couldn’t have been more wrong and these little ladies illustrate that.

They are so different.  One snugly the other giggly.  One content to slowly investigate, the other on a mission to explore and conquer.  One tall and lean the other squishalishish.  And even though they are each their own individual person they are still the same in many ways.  For starters they have parents that love them!  A mother with twins has to become a purely selfless woman.  I was EXHAUSTED after a short time with these two ladies in the studio.  Imagine every day, giving 100% of yourself to the care of two babies!  Their mother should be sainted!!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for some more images from their session on my facebook page;-)

They are adorable!! And I totally get that wanting a twin thing! Ha ha Growing up, my sister and I would tell everyone we were twins and our mom even dressed us the same! We’re only 16 months apart and now we couldn’t be more opposite! Lol

P.s. I’m still waiting to get taller too!
