This is our future. Every bit of everything good we have needs to be placed as a seed in these perfectly innocent future leaders. She might be a future President, Doctor, Engineer, Teacher or Mother. What ever she become she will lead. What we teach our children is the most important job any of us have. They will become what they see, what they hear and what they experience. Let’s teach them love. We need to show them courage and strength with integrity. Little children need a safe place to grow up, to learn and prosper. Let’s give them that. They are our fresh start. I see Nora and at first I see a sweet sleep cherub. When I look harder I see our future. Love her. Protect her. Encourage her.
Happy birthday to this handsome little man! I am so happy his parents hired me to be his Auburn baby photographer because he was so pleasant to work with. Parker was 100% comfortable in the studio and it was so easy to coax a smile out of him. What a blessing he must be to his family because he is so good natured. Parker is having a Spider Man themed birthday party to celebrate his one year milestone. Super fitting since he has a super hero name. His cake was so awesome that after taking a picture of him with it we carefully wrapped it back up so that it could make its debut at his birthday party. I can’t wait to get this wonderful family the images from their son’s portrait session. He is such a charmer! My hope is that clients will always remember to print their images. These adorable portraits of Parker need to be up on the walls of his home and in the hands of his loving family! Pictures have no value if they stay on a CD in your drawer!
Most people look forward to Fall because of the beautiful display Nature puts on with all of the colors of the changing leaves. We look forward to the air turning crisp so that we can line up at Starbucks for that all so delicious pumpkin spiced latte. We love to curl up by the fireplace with a good book and slow down a little. There are the Holidays fast approaching that bring the promise of family time and goodwill. So many wonderful reasons to look forward to the coming of Fall. For this family there was another that trumps all of those perfectly delightful reasons. They were expecting a baby. Rowan was coming, and that meant a baby to hold, a tiny warm body to snuggle, a miniature hand to hold tightly to yours. A son! As much as I love Fall and all of the great things that we all love about the changing of the season, there is nothing more worthy of excited anticipation than the arrival of a baby.
I was more than happy to bring a little bit of the Fall season that Rowan was born in to his portrait session. As a Seattle newborn photographer, styling sessions is the easy part of what I do. Rowan’s mom sent me a picture she had pinned from Pinterest with a baby in a crate with leaves and I went from there. His portraits look so perfect together I hope that his parents will use them to create a beautiful keepsake album. What a treasure that will be.
Suddenly your baby girl is so big as you hold your newest daughter in your arms. And then there is the change happening in your heart. You thought it was full before. But it is growing, expanding, doubling in size. Just a look into her perfect little face and you know you will love her just as much as her sister. There is no doubt. Together, mother and daughters you will map out your eternity. As you hold her little newborn hand you wish time could slow for just a little bit so that you can have the time you need to soak in all the feels. You are a mom, not just to one beautiful little girl, but to two perfect daughters. There is so much joy, you are overwhelmed. But one thing is for sure. You have the peace of knowing that these sacred wonderful moments are captured perfectly, because you hired a professional Lakewood newborn photographer. You know she will grow in the twinkling of an eye. But you will always have these beautiful baby portraits to remember every perfect newborn detail of your tiny little princess.
You look at her with wonder. How in the world in one short year has she changes from a tiny, helpless newborn to a spunky, full of energy toddler. It is a wonder and a miracle. There is so much change during the first year and you want to remember it all! Like that moment you set a perfectly beautiful cake that you made down in front of her and she smiled so big you couldn’t help but smile too. And then you laugh because she was more interested in pushing the cake stand around the room then actually eating any cake. Cake smash sessions are full of fun. Those big beautiful eyes make you swoon. You will be so happy you hired a Puyallup Baby Photographer to capture them perfectly for you. These moments will never be forgotten. Even when your memory is full of cobwebs you can look at these beautiful portraits of your birthday girl and remember, forever…how much you loved her and all her silly sas.
