I met this family several months when they came to my daughter’s mini session fundraiser. It was so exciting to learn that they were expecting a baby boy. My fingers were crossed from that point on that they would choose me to be their Puyallup newborn photographer. Sometimes you just click with a family. I really wanted to work with them when their son arrived to make sure the would have beautiful portraits to celebrate his arrival. Over the past few months I have seen Maggie’s excitement grow as she watched me post sneak peeks on my facebook page. Every time I posted a session with a newborn born I saw her liking and commenting on the post. She messaged me once letting me know that with every post featuring a baby boy her anticipation grew. It is wonderful to know that you can give something to a mother that they are so excited to have and will forever treasure. Connor was a very good sleeper. It is a good thing. Maggie had told me that her dream shot was the branch shot that I do (featured above). I always warn parents that this shot is by no means a guarantee. While it is a composite (meaning that the babies are never actually hanging on their own from the tree branch), the baby does have to be very sleepy in order for me to make it work. Every time I am able to nail a shot that I know parents really want it makes me so happy. I also really love working with older siblings. There are so many wonderful portraits of Connor with his super sweet big sister. Life is good as a Puyallup newborn photographer. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love.
