Sweet Baby Ryker – Redmond Seattle Newborn Photographer

DO you remember my beautiful friend Chelsi and her daughters from their maternity session last month?  Well, Mr Ryker Reid made his safe debut into the world recently.  And Chelsi brought him into the studio for his newborn session – and I was so happy she did.

What a beautiful baby boy – his little rolls, his chubby cheeks, his soft blond hair.

I was so honored to photograph Ryker for his first newborn portraits.  Congratulations G family on the safe arrival of your sweet little man. xo

Levi James is 9 months ~ Bothell Seattle Photographer

I get excited every time I get to see the K family – Mr Levi James – I was one of the first people to meet you him on his ”birth day“  and it has been so fun to watch him grow this year (here is his newborn and 6 month installments).

The K family joined me in the studio for a mini milestone session.  His personality has grown and his cheeky grin became a sure sign he was going to wiggle away on us.  Since I saw him last, he has popped through a few teeth and I dare say, he is almost walking…

The last 9 months have gone so fast, and I am excited to see him again soon for his 1 year installment.

Anticipating baby Jack – Bellevue Seattle WA Maternity Photographer

Lovely momma to be Becca (from B. Jones Photography) and I had been planning this maternity session for months.  We both had so many ideas about how we wanted to capture this moment in time for her and her husband.  She wanted romantic images that were soft and girly and showed off her changing silhouette.  We even did some nude boudoir photos which are for their eyes only.

After talking over email for so long, it was so wonderful to meet her in person and we laughed and chatted more than we photographed. Those are the best sessions I think:)

I cant wait to meet baby Jack when he makes his appearance in a month or so.

Welcoming Cade – Seattle Newborn Photographer

Two and a half years ago, I had the honor of photographing Indira when she was only 9 days old.  Recently she became a big sister when baby Cade arrived. And boy did she love him – she couldn’t wait to tell me about his little hands and his tiny toes.  She was so gentle with him as she snuggled him for photos.  These two will be the best of friends as they grow up, I can already tell.

Cade is my latest baby planner, so I am so excited to see him as he grows this year. xo

Welcoming Damian – Kirkland Newborn Photographer

Photographing the birth of a baby as he or she is being welcomed into the world and take it’s first breath is one of my greatest honors.  I had the privilege of being one of the first people to welcome Damian into the world, and then I had the double honor of also doing his newborn session.

I also got to meet his big brother Sebastian who was so excited about becoming a big brother.  He just wanted to hug and kiss his new little brother over and over – it was so sweet.

Damian had this soft blond hair and pouty lips that were just kissable (don’t worry – I didn’t;)) and the most perfect creamy skin.  He was 10 lbs of perfection and I was so honored to do his first newborn portraits.  xo
