Kisses

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor Colton 3 Kisses
Did he just blow me a kiss?  That is what I thought to myself.  Colton came into the studio for his newborn photography session a little charmer.  He was so perfectly chunky and it was all I could do to actually do my job and not cuddle and hold him the whole time!  He is so handsome.  Makes me wonder how many hearts he will break on his way to finding the perfect girl for him someday.  For now he can give all his kisses to Mom and Grandma;-)

Birthday Bash

Baby Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor Mila 7 Birthday Bash

Mila came to see me one last time this year for a Baby Cake Smash session!  I haven’t seen her since she was just a wee fee days old.  I think that if you had put a bunch of babies in a line up and all I had to go on was her newborn picture I could pick this little cutie out of a crowd;-)  She just spent the better half of the year on the East coast.  I can’t think of a better way to celebrate being back on the west coast then by smashing a birthday cake!  I love the tutu her mother brought along.  Such fun bold colors.  I know that when she looks back at her portraits, even just as a little toddler, she will love these and want to still wear this beautiful tutu to twirl around her home.  I am sure that her Mom and Dad (and Grandma and Auntie) have wonderful plans and wishes for this lovely lady in the new year.  Happy Birthday Mila and a Happy New Year;-)

Worth The Wait

Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor Andrew 3 682x1024 Worth The Wait
Sometimes my job as a newborn photographer is extra sweet.  Mom and Dad were both so excited they couldn’t stand to sit.  It was such a pleasure to photograph little Andrew and hear in the background their constant oohs and aahs.  When a couple wait for so long to hold in their arms a little miracle there is an extra special joy in the room during a session.  I wanted to do a stork image for them to represent those years of waiting and the joy of the gift that is finally theirs.  I can not image wanting something for so long and then having that moment finally arrive.  Elizabeth I found this poem on-line.  I do not know the author, but it is beautiful and I think perfect to share with you;-)

I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun
You’re part of me my little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew,
My mind was filled with thoughts of you.

I’d daydream of the things we’d share,
Like late-night bottles and Teddy bears.
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC’s.
I thought of things you’d want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

I thought of lessons I’d need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace.
I thanked the angels from above,
And promised you unending love.

Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek.
I count your little fingers and toes;
I memorize your eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more.

Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper, “I love you” every night.
I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
As mother and child our journeys begin,
My heart’s yours forever little one.

Congrats!!  Sweet Andrew is finally yours!

Christmas Baby

Newborn photographer Seattle Tacoma Gig Harbor Levi 7 682x1024 Christmas Baby
When Levi came to the studio for his newborn photography session I talked his parents into having a little holiday fun so they could have some great portraits to share with family and friends.  I know it is a little late to be sharing Christmas images but I promised my clients this year to keep their special holiday images secret to allow them to be the first to share.  So better late than never, here is Levi;-)  I know that most parents are a little nervous about having a “Holiday” baby.  But having had one myself I think it is a special gift.  During the Christmas season we think of another baby born long ago.  With a focus on the “Christmas Spirit” and good will toward all men there is no better season to bring a child into the world.  Holding a baby in your arms when as large parts of the world take a break from the daily grind to try and focus on peace and love is extra special.  A new baby will reinvent your world for you.

Visions Of Sugar Plums

Baby Photographer Seattle Tacoma Puyallup Benjamin 4 1024x682 Visions Of Sugar Plums
Benjamin came to see me this week and we had lots of fun.  I have to say I am pretty impressed that his parents brought great things to the session for me to use.  One of the props they brought from home was this darling teddy from their days working at Disney Land (yeah they are pretty cool).  Another thing Dad brought from home was a “Night Before Christmas” book.  Unfortunately the book was a little big and the cover glared badly with the flash so we went to plan “B” and used these little board books.  I am so in love with this portrait.  Benjamin is the very first baby to get all comfy, cozy on my newest prop!  I LOVE this bed!  This little fellow was so happy to sit and look at books.  He kept cracking me up because he would intermittently keep looking over at the teddy bear.  His little face seemed to express, “oh, you’re still here.”  I have a passion for Children’s literature so this portrait of Benjamin might just be one of my all time favorites!
