One of the great things about having a professional to learn from in person is learning the little itty bitty things that they do to nudge subjects into a flawless pose. I really feel like Briony is an expert at posing women. She has a gift with making pregnant moms feel comfortable. Having experienced pregnancy on her own she knows how much she is asking of her clients, when it is OK to push them into a position and when it is not going to work for a specific client. She had excellent tips for quickly taking clients from one pose to the next to maximize her time with them. I loved watching her at her work. I had a vision in my mind that Briony captured perfectly with her posing of this image. A demur, pregnant princess.
The best thing about having a super talented photographer come to your home is that she can teach you how to really utilize your space. Briony taught me how to take advantage of my beautiful yard. I am glad that all of the hours of work can benefit my clients from now on. If you book a maternity session with me from here on out you will probably get a tour of my yard. I love learning. And I love that I know how new beautiful backdrops to take advantage of to provide my clients with stunning portraits of their special life moments.
Congrats Ann Marie on the arrival of baby Hank!

It is super exciting to get to meet many new moms from all over Western Washington. But my favorite is when I get to be a Puyallup Baby Photographer. I always hope to see the cute little babies that I photograph, from their newborn portraits all the way to their birthday cake smash, around town. When I work with parents to plan their photography sessions I always ask if their little one has a favorite toy, food or hobby. It helps me to personalize sessions. Kate loves apples. So this idea was born. One sweet, beautiful baby girl, a market basket and a bushel of Honey Crisp apples (only the best for my clients!). It was the first time I’ve used apples in a session. She really did love them. I captured some huge, great big smiles. I love working with babies. I will be posting some more sneak peaks in a facebook album on Monday. So be sure to check there after the weekend.
