Puyallup Newborn Photographer ~ Picture Perfect

I was so excited to see baby Konnor come to my Puyallup newborn studio.  I was his brother’s photographer and really was looking forward to seeing this wonderful family again.  I swear his Mommy and Daddy make the very cutest baby boys!  They were both perfectly plump with gorgeous skin, full kissable lips and those picture perfect chubby cheeks.

As I have been listening to all of the awesome Holiday music on the radio I have thought to myself that one type of song is missing.  Someone out there needs to write a sweet Christmas lullaby.  A song that captures the serene perfection of holding a newborn in your arms during Christmas.  It is special.  I can’t say why, and unless you have been there, it is probably something that can not be understood.

I know little Konnor has had a rough first few weeks.  And when babies have it rough their parents have it doubly so.  So as I wait to have Konnor come back to the studio to finish out his session gallery, I thought that his Mom might just need to see that we did capture so picture perfect moments already!  We just need a few more.  Merry Christmas to a wonderful family:-)

Puyallup Baby Photography ~ Captivated

This is my favorite portrait from Liam’s Baby photography session.  My hubby walked by as I was working on his session images and said, “that is a dang good looking kid.”  Make me laugh!  He totally is though.  What really make this image the winner for me though is how those bright blue eyes captivate me.  He is truly blessed because those gorgeous eyes are also framed with the most amazing lashes ever.  This little guy is one good looking baby!

Lacey Maternity Photographer ~ Expectations and the Best Fit

I am going to get a little religious here, so bare with me.  Without fail around the Christmas season my thoughts turn to Mary, mother of Christ.  I think of her like this beautiful mother to be.  I picture her to be absolutely beautiful, like Rachel here.  Heavy with child and heavy with the weight of expectations.  I think that burden of expectations is something that we as mothers all share.  No matter what era we bring children into the world, what country we labor in, or what our circumstances might be, we all as a collective pause to think about the expectations placed upon us.  It is part of womanhood and most certainly a right of passage.  We hold our swollen bellies and think about the future and our roles in the future of the babies growing within.

I wish I could have my clients, like Rachel, write down their thoughts.  To be let into their deep ponderings for just a moment would be so intriguing.  And what about Mary.  What thoughts troubled and entertained her mind?  Did she grasp the meaning of the life about to be born?  Was there any trepidation?  Did the mother of Christ dream of the simple moments that we all look forward to; holding a warm baby in her arms, chubby hands holding hers’, singing songs, wiping away tears, laughter filling her home or maybe tender kisses on her cheek.  Of all the women in the world before and yet to come, God chose her.  I wonder what made her the best mother?

Sometimes I like to fantasize that like Christ being predestined to be Mary’s son, my children were meant to be mine and likewise Rachel’s little girl was meant to be hers’.  I like to think that I was the best mother for my brood.  We each have lying within us something special that makes us the best fit.  Maybe…

Beautiful prose. Beautiful photo. She’s so modestly covered and at the same time so revealing.
