Bonney Lake Baby Photographer ~ The Best Days

Bonney Lake Baby Photographer Z 1024x736 Bonney Lake Baby Photographer ~ The Best Days

Zac’s family has been coming to see me from there home in Bonney Lake for a few years.  Zac is their second baby I have photographed.  What a privilege that is!  When I have families come in for baby portraits this is one of the poses I aim to capture for them.  Why?  Because it is something I miss.  I miss it terribly.  Watching my babies discover their toes and play with them in fascination always made me so happy.  I can remember lying on the floor with them and just enjoying those moments.  Life was so simple then.  Now chores, homework, prepping for college, sports, piano lessons, teenager angst, hormones and so many other things get in the way.

These days are the best days.  When it is just you, your baby and his toes.

I love when my newborn photography clients come back to see me for baby portraits.  It is a special treat when they are from my neck of the woods here in Puyallup.  The sitting stage is such a wonderful time for portraits.  Babies are just coming into their own at around six months.  Their little personalities have started to bloom.  They love hand games and song.  Their smiles are real smiles, not gassy flukes.  Just like their newborn session I like to keep things simple so that they can be the shining stars of their own show.  Jack is bigger and stronger and all full of smiles.  But as you can see there is a lot that hasn’t changed.  He is still a cherub ready to melt your heart.

Being a newborn photographer is such a wonderful job.  I get to be one of the first people to witness a miracle.  The creation of a family.  I think families aren’t really a “family” until a baby has brought two people in love together in a way only a newborn can.  Before baby arrived Mom and Dad had their own careers, their own interests, their own goals.  Once a little one arrives they are bond together with “glue” so to speak.  Now they have to yolk themselves together to bring up a little person.  Parents careers take the back seat as their singular purpose, interests and goals change in a moment to the bringing up of a healthy happy child.  I love family portraits with brand new babies.  It is such a significant time and it is such an honor to be the one behind the camera.

Lake Tapps Baby Photographer ~ Postcard Perfect

Baby Photographer Lake Tapps 1024x735 Lake Tapps Baby Photographer ~ Postcard Perfect
Lyla’s Mom came to see me last week for one year / cake smash portraits of her baby girl.  After showing me the darling outfits she had brought and talking a bit about the cake smash outfit, she asked me if I could create something really special.  I think the words she used were “postcard perfect”.  While I strive to create “postcard perfect” portraits with every image that I take I think I understood where she was coming from.

What I had in my studio that morning was a mother who wanted that perfect memory.  And she is no different than every other mother.  We want that perfect picture.  The one that captures our child beautifuly.  The one our friends will say, “that belongs in a magazine.”  We want that consummate portrait that will take us back to those splendid days of baby bliss.  In all reality what we want in a picture is a time capsule.  Mothers want to look at portraits of their children and remember their baby’s smell, they way their toddler twisted their hair when she was tired, the feel of butter soft skin against their cheek, the memory of holding a chunky baby hand in their own, sparkling eyes, the feeling of a tender head with whisper soft hair nuzzling into your chest, the sound of cooing…the list could go on and on.  The perfect picture is one that takes you back with impeccable clarity to those moments that you treasure.

I hope that this picture of Lyla will always remind her Mom of what a perfect little princess she is and always will be.

I can’t help but to love my job.  Being a newborn photographer allows me to be part of the most important events that happen to a family.  Bringing a new baby home is such a blessing.  I get to know families and meet each of their little infants that they welcome to their family.  I am so excited for the “L” family to welcome a little boy.  The have the perfect family.  A daughter and a son.  Children to pass their legacy and family traditions down to.  A boy to carry on the family name.

Not only will Ryder be taught what being part of the “L” family is all about and how to honor and respect his family name, he will be taught to become a part of the traditions that make that family who they are.  One of the things that his family does that bring them together is to hunt.  I think it is pretty cool that it isn’t just Dad and Grandpa who get to participate.  Mom does too.  I can totally see a time a few years down the road when they are doing it together as a family.

I truly believe that families who participate in a hobby together are stronger for it!  Welcome to your family Ryder.  I know they will bring you up to be strong and good.
