Mercer Island Newborn Photographer ~ Preston

Mercer Island Newborn Photographer

When Hillary hired me as her Mercer Island newborn photographer she wanted neutrals and natural posing.  I knew we were going to be a good match.  That just so happens to be right up my ally.  What I didn’t know is how wonderfully cooperative her older children were going to be.  They made little Preston’s session the success that it is.  I don’t often get to work with older siblings.  Usually I am trying to wrangle a 2 year old into getting close to the new baby.  They are suspicious, nervous and sometimes acting out with the new changes made to their family.  Bringing a new baby home can definitely turn a 2 year old’s world upside down.  But Ben and Molly were champs.  They were super comfortable and confident holding their new baby brother, even when he was being a stinker.  I look at these sweet sibling images of Preston with his big brother and sister and they make my heart so happy and I am not even the mommy.  I hope these portraits of these three perfect, Heaven sent children, will make their mommy super happy.

Time Well Spent

See tiny fingers and tiny toes,
Bright baby eyes, cute baby nose;
Hear baby gurgles and baby sighs,
As Mom and Dad sing lullabies.

Life is changed, but that’s okay;
It’s fun to spend glad hours each day,
Taking time for all the good
That comes along with parenthood.

You always get such great variety for your clients. That shot with her big bright eyes open is my favorite. So cute!

I love capturing a baby’s wonder during a photo shoot.  An expression of wonder caught in a baby portrait is priceless.  I feel like it could be the theme to one of those clever credit card commercials.

Bubbles – $3.00

New shirt – $25.00

Capture your boys awe and wonder – Priceless

And there you have it.  A perfect memory made and captured forever.  When he is 17 and about to start his senior year, Jake’s mom can dig up this amazing picture and remember how wonderful it was to have a one year old boy.  I am at that point in my own life right now.  I have two weeks before I begin the very last year I have with my son at home.  In one year he will be off to college.  In one year he will be an adult.  In one year he will forget that he was once my baby, he will fly from the nest.  I think it is during those first few months after he has started out on his own that I will miss him the most I will be be holding tight to portraits of him.  Maybe some with bubbles, a face covered in cake, holding his teddy bear Fuzz…Pictures will be the catalyst for memories that I treasure.

Of all the things that you invest in as a parent.  Portraits of your children are one of the most rewarding.  Newborn pictures, baby photographs, milestone moments all of these are perfect times for having your baby’s portrait professionally taken.  I am so grateful to be part of making memories for parents like Jake’s who come to see me.

Puyallup Baby Photographer ~ Harper’s Birthday

Sometimes you have to think outside the box as a Puyallup baby photographer.  Traditionally birthdays are celebrated with a cake.  Typically at baby milestone portrait sessions we are handing baby a cake to destroy at their pleasure.  But when you have an adorable baby girl who is allergic to all sorts of things, bless her heart…you improvise.  Every baby deserves a smash session to celebrate their birthday milestone.  And when cake won’t do strawberries seem like the next best thing.  I asked Harper’s mommy what kind of foods Harper could eat that she loved and strawberries was the answer.  This may or may not be the very first strawberry smash.  When her mommy said she liked strawberries she wasn’t kidding either.  Harper LOVED them.  I purposefully looked for the biggest, reddest strawberries I could find at the store.  I assumed Harper would take bites.  But no, this little lady was stuffing the whole gigantic berry into her mouth.  We had to slice them and watch her closely she was so over the moon with her berries.  I can only imagine the disaster of frosting she would have created with a cake, lol.  These pictures just could not make me any happier.  Her halo of golden curls, those huge blue eyes and those delicious strawberries.  YUMM!

On a side note, this portrait session made me think of one of my favorite children’s books.  It is great as a read aloud!  Check it out.  The Little Mouse, The Red-Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear

Once upon a time there was a princess.  She was perfectly pink with soft squishy cheeks.  She smelled like everything brand new and innocent about the world.  Her tiny hand held by another could bring instant happiness and peace.  She was everything good in the world.  She was hope, love and the future.  On the day she was born she caused hearts to grow, tears of joy and pure, happy laughter to ring out for all to hear.  She was a miracle and her name is Harlow.
