I am so excited that the Cowarts invited me to be their Puyallup Newborn Photographer for baby number two. I can’t believe it has been so long since I was taking newborn pictures of Jensen’s big sister, Rilynn. But look at her all grown up in the family portrait. Just crazy how fast time flies. The Cowart family has since moved to Hood River, so it was a big deal to travel up to Puyallup to see me for baby pictures of little Jensen. I am so glad they did. It is a real privilege to be part of such a special time. It was fun to remember back to Rilynn’s newborn photography session and to compare her brand new brother to her. I think Jensen won for being a better sleeper. But I am calling it a tie on who was the best model for their newborn portraits. I know this wonderful family loves their Hawks. It was no trouble at all to talk them into these colors. Jensen is a little baby 12! It won’t be long before he too is screaming for the Seahawks! I love the blanket that mom brought to her session with her sons name printed on it. It was given to her as a baby gift and it is just perfect! Congratulations to this wonderful family!
Welcome to the world baby Isaac! It was a pleasure to meet your mom and dad and to be your Tacoma newborn photographer. I loved getting to snuggle you and rock you and look into those big dark eyes of yours. You were such a great little sport on your special portrait day! When clients come hire me to be there baby’s Tacoma newborn photographer they are hoping that I capture images of their baby just like these that I took of you. You were perfection. I almost got this sneak peek up for your mom before Mother’s Day. That would have been awesome. But she was probably busy holding you, rocking you and just being so thankful to be holding you in her arms. So the day after Mother’s Day will have to do. She looks so beautiful holding you. Look at all that love captured in a portrait. I hope you will be able to always look back at the images from your newborn session and know without a shadow of a doubt that you were wanted. You were loved. You were everything.
If you are expecting a baby please don’t trust anyone other than a professional Tacoma newborn photographer with capturing these fleeting memories. You just created life. You deserve the best.
There are so many cute portraits to share from Sawyer’s Seattle baby photography session. It is always super hard to pick favorites, but it was extra hard in Sawyer’s case. I think my favorite series of image is this little guy with his beautiful drum. LOVED them all! But then he was perfect in every other set so I had to share one from everything. He really rocked his Mariner’s jersey. That series is my next favorite. Mom had all of the perfect sports gear to make that set really stand out and be awesome. She really wanted a shot of her little guy and his reflection in the mirror too. But for some reason this shot works well with sitting babies that are about six months old and it has never been an easy shot with one year old toddlers. They just don’t like it. Maybe they are smart enough to wonder why they are sitting on another baby, lol, who knows. But I was quick with the shutter button and got two great portraits of Sawyer before he refused to sit on the other baby for one more minute.
If you want to take a trip down memory lane and see little Sawyer when he was just a few days brand new, clink on the link here to see his newborn photography post.
Julissa is a happy girl. Julissa is a big girl. Julissa is a birthday girl. She is a whole lot of things. But one thing she is undoubtedly is a super model! I have never, ever, ever had a little girl rock her birthday portrait session like Julissa did. I am thanking my lucky stars that her parents hired me to be their daughter’s Lakewood baby photographer. She is perfection! I swear these images could be part of an advertising campaign and it has nothing to do with me. It has everything to do with this little ladies ginormous eyes, smile and PERSONALITY! She loved my scale. It was bouncy, and that just made her day. All of the images with this prop are my favorite from her cake smash birthday session. And so I thought it was a must to use them all in her sneak peek so that you all could see the timeline of portrait perfection that she blessed me with.
Her parents will win hands down any cutest baby contest they ever enter with these stunning images of their baby girl. This whole session came together so perfectly. Julissa’s mommy knew exactly what she wanted. She wanted rustic and she knew which props she wanted to use for the most part. Every outfit was matched perfectly with her favorite sets. And then on top of it all she brings me her perfectly portrait happy daughter. This whole portrait session was elementary! Perfect planning and perfect personality are a match made in Heaven!
This session! Gah! I just don’t have enough adjectives to describe how perfect it is. I am SO glad this wonderful family chose me to be their Olympia newborn photographer! I don’t often have clients drive north to see me, lol. They are always driving south from Seattle. What a blessing to work with such a lovely family. Mom had send me a few emails with screen shots that she loved so that I would know how to style her session. I feel like I met those expectations, especially considering little Presley was pretty alert during her session. In spite of keeping her mommy up all night she was awake for such of her session and very interested in learning all about being an Olympia newborn photographer. She didn’t realize that she was the start of the show, lol! I really appreciated that this client for the most part sent me screen shots of my own work. Sometimes clients send a list of images taken by other photographers. It is nice when it is your own work clients want. Also sometimes it is very difficult to replicate the work of another photographer. And it is definitely a creativity killer. Presley’s mommy did it just right.
