Maxwell | Tacoma Newborn Photographer

Oh Maxwell.  You make me swoon.  As a Tacoma newborn photographer, I see a LOT of babies.  Obviously I believe that all babies are beautiful.  All babies are perfect in their own way.  Maxwell, however, is perfect in a I-think-I-need-to-squeeze-him-and-snuggle-him-for-hours kind of way.  Seriously.  He has the most perfect skin I’ve ever seen.  It was the color of the most perfect latte.  His lips?  Don’t even get me started.  Forgettaboutit.  And the lashes.  Oh, those lashes.  How is it that boys always seem to have the most perfect lashes on earth?  It’s on big cosmic joke, I tell ya.

Just when I thought I was going to have to step outside of my Tacoma newborn photography studio to catch my breath, I pulled his hat off.  The fact that I was still standing after that is nothing short of a miracle.  He had the darkest, most beautiful head of hair I’ve seen in a LONG time.  After all that, I convinced myself that maybe, just maybe, he’d be a really difficult baby.  I mean, if he was super difficult, I would be able to resist the temptation to sneak him home with me.  Well, Maxwell must have been sent from above as my own personal ultimate temptation, because that kid was as sweet as can be.  Even when he was awake, he was as calm and sweet as a tired kitten who just wanted to snuggle.

And in case anyone is wondering…yes.  I did offer to take him home with me 🙂

Maya | Seattle Newborn Photographer

I LOVE when clients book me as both their Seattle newborn photographer AND their maternity photographer.  A lot of people opt out of the maternity session (trust me, I totally get it.  I would have pried a camera out of someone’s hands faster than you can say “extra-thick milkshake).  The maternity session does have a purpose, though.  Apart from capturing those fleeting, beautiful, hip-wrenching, back-aching moments, it gives us the opportunity to get to know each other better.

You see, when you hire me as your Seattle newborn photographer, you are putting an incredible amount of trust in me.  You are trusting me to not only preserve memories and traits that will literally be gone in weeks, but to care for your babies as if they were my own.  When you have been thinking and praying and wishing for that baby for months or years, that’s an incredible amount of trust.

Through the maternity session, we have the opportunity to get to know each other a bit more, and establish trust.  This allows moms and dads the opportunity to rest easy during their newborn session knowing that I’ve got everything under control.  In my experience, parents who opted for a maternity session come to my Tacoma newborn photography studio much more relaxed and at ease.  Since we all know relaxed parents make for relaxed babies, maternity mamas tend to have babies with bigger galleries packed full of variety.

As you’ll notice, Miss Maya had TONS of different set ups (we had four that aren’t even blogged!). I attribute this to mama following the Sleepy Baby prep guide AND to the fact that her parents and I bonded so well during their maternity session!  They came relaxed, calm, and ready to have a short break while I cooed over their beautiful girl.

Grant | Seattle newborn photographer

Mr. Grant is simply amazing.  Thinking 18 years down the road and I can guarantee one thing:  this kid is going to be a stud.  Between the awesome hair, his easy-going ways, and sweet little grin, he’s going to be the hottest commodity strolling down his high school halls.

This kid was so sweet and easy-going, it made my job as a Seattle newborn photographer so fun and easy!  I had such a blast getting him into different set ups and poses, and he handled each one like a champ.

Grant, thank you so much for spending the day with me.  Your sweet nature was a welcome breath of fresh air.

Camila | Seattle newborn photographer

Camila.  Sweet, teeny Camila.  This little peanut showed up at my Seattle newborn photography studio at just over 5 pounds!  She was the teeniest little thing, but packed a huge personality.  For the short time that she was awake, she gave her Seattle newborn photographer some amazing expressions!  Apparently, those goofy faces are just part of who this beautiful girl is, because her parents tell me she still makes those same faces!

That is definitely one of my favorite parts of being a Seattle newborn photographer:  I get the opportunity to document things that will continue to be prevalent for the rest of these tiny humans’ lives.  How many people can say that they capture peoples’ first “Wazzzzzup” faces that they continue to make 20 years later?  It’s a pretty awesome honor.

Once sweet little Camila grew tired of entertaining me, she drifted off into deep sleep  so that I could capture some sweet, calm portraits.  I love the variety that we were able to capture, and I’m so glad that her parents will have these memories for years to come.

Parker | Tacoma newborn photographer

Parker.  Oh sweet, Parker.  Miss Parker was born into one of my favorite families in the whole world.  When I found out Kristen, Parker’s mama, was pregnant, I did the happiest dance on earth.  You see, Kristin and Matt already have two AMAZING kiddos.  Weston, their oldest, is one of the biggest hams I’ve ever met.  He loves the camera and will smile and entertain on command.  Lorelai is full of personality and sass.  She knows what she wants, and she’ll stop at nothing to get it.  While it may make her parents pull their hair out sometimes, I know that means she is preparing to grow into a smart, independent, and strong woman.

When I met Parker, her personality was just as evident as those of her siblings.  She is a sweet, gentle, and happy girl.  As the years go by, she will be the one that friends and family look to for comfort and happiness.  A kind heart simply radiates from Parker.  All of the smiles she gave during her session are proof positive of that 🙂

Quinn | Tacoma Newborn Photographer

Quinn | Tacoma newborn photographer

I’ve been a Tacoma newborn photographer for about 4 years now.  Over the years I’ve expanded to include newborns from Seattle and beyond.  However, when one of my oldest friends got pregnant, I was worried that she wouldn’t hire me because she lived nearly two hours away.  I was resigned to accept that, but I was still uber sad.  When I say we go way back, I mean I’ve known her long enough that she was the one who taught me how to play kick the can, waterski, and shave my legs.  Photographing her newborn girl was something I was dying to do.

When she reached out and said that she wanted to bring her baby to my Tacoma newborn photography studio, I was beyond excited.  Quinn was a perfect little angel when she was at the studio, and it was such a joy to meet her in her first few weeks of life.  Spending time with her mama was even better, and I feel so honored that I was trusted to capture these memories for their whole family.

Quinn, you are loved.  You are beautiful, and you deserve the whole world.  You bring more joy than you could imagine, and I can’t wait to see you grow into an amazing little girl.

There are very few things I enjoy more than redemption stories.  Several years ago, an old high school classmate of mine reached out to hire me as their family photographer.  I was a newer photographer, was just really taking this game seriously, and was flattered that she thought of me.  I shot the session and was pleased as punch at the results.  In the grand scheme of things, it was actually a pretty great session considering how fresh I was.

Cue a few years later, I noticed on Facebook that Chelsi was pregnant.  And I began to hope they’d hire me again.  And then I began to worry.  What if they look back at their portraits as critically as I look at them now?  There’s a million things I’d change; a million things I’d improve upon.  In the last three years, my skills improved drastically.  I was hopeful that they’d see how much I’d grown and that they’d want to hire me again.  I LOVED working with this family, and I wanted the chance to redeem myself.

Turns out, all of that worrying gave me unnecessary wrinkles.  A couple months into their pregnancy, Chelsi hired me to be their Seattle newborn photographer.  Let me tell you, I owe them big.  Huge.  This was a redemption to end all redemption stories.  Haelyn was a freaking dream.  Dare I say, this may have been my best session to date.  I could have photographed her for hours and hours.  Every shot we took we nailed.  She melted into poses and was as malleable as play dough.  She was born to model.
