Somebody’s Watching Me {Newborn Photographer Seattle Tacoma Puyallup}

Siaosi came to the studio for his newborn photography session shortly after Halloween.  A year and a half ago I got to be his little sisters newborn photographer.  It has been such a privilege to be part of two wonderful events in this little families timeline;-)  I knew that this little fellow was going to make me work really hard.  Poor little guy was a month old by the time he came to see me.  He has had some re-flux issues and just hasn’t had the happiest start.  As I went about my business trying to create some magic in the studio I had a song running through my mind.  Actually what I had running through my mind was one line of lyrics from the chorus being sung by my daughter over and over.  She is four so it sounds a little funny.  No matter what was going on this little man had his eyes on me the whole time (except for about 20 minutes).  Even now looking at this portrait I can’t help but sing, “Why do I feel like…somebody’s watching me….”.   I know it is silly.  But I don’t think I will ever be able to look at an image from his session without thinking of that song.

On a more sweet and tender note I have had a few people ask about this little fellows name.  He is named after his Grandfather (LOVE IT).  Siaosi (See-O-See) means George in Tongan.  It always makes me a little mushy to hear about how parents selected their baby’s names.  You have a chance to give a child a name that will be a strength to them all their lives.  A name that will teach and comfort.  Siaosi senior must be a wonderful, great man to have the privilege of being little Siaosi’s name sake.
