Meet Natalie~In studio Newborn, Duvall

Summer has started at our house with a mean dose of allergies.  But we press on through swim class, water balloon fights, and trampoline jumping.  More to come for sure.  So stay tuned!  Maybe I’ll do a personal blog here soon.

A sweet beautiful baby girl came in the studio this past week.  She preferred being awake which is fine by me.  There is nothing like some eye contact from a new little baby.  I could stare at newborns for hours.  However, I have to be a busy bee if they snooze for a few minutes.  And that’s what happened so I moved quickly during that few minutes.  And at the end we did some headshots for her Dad.

I want to wish this family the best.  They came to me before a move back to the islands.  ~Aloha~ I’m glad we met before you left.  You have such a beautiful little princess.

Here are my favs~

♥Sweet baby love on the blog this lovely Saturday♥

Baby number three in her family arrived and has been showered with love by her family and friends.  Isn’t she just precious!  I had so much fun playing with her and she looks so adorable in all her outfit changes.  All the outfits are a collaboration her mother and I put together.  The board with her name on it was an etsy find and I just adore it!  Someday I’d like to craft one myself.

This was my sixth session I’ve had with this awesome family.  I love seeing all the kids grow up.  It’s a special part of my job.  And all the baby snuggles are a fantastic part as well.

I hope you’ll enjoy these images with the same love I have for them.

Meet Maverick~Newborn Photography, Duvall

Here’s a little man who stole my heart.  He’ll call me Aunty.  And I may spoil him because that’s what Aunties do.  My daughter is also obsessed with him and all the things she will teach him to do and to eat.  She talks about him daily.  There is something special about cousins isn’t there.

Since I know his Daddy really well, I knew what theme would be perfect~ A tiny little fisherman.  I had the little outfit for months waiting his arrival.  The adorable knit outfit is from https://www.etsy.com/shop/HatCharacters?ref=below-listing-title.  The fishing rod detail is amazing.  I wish I had knitting skills like that.

I hope you enjoy my favorites from our session.

Lincoln//2 weeks

Welcome to the world this sweet beautiful baby boy.  He’s a dream.  He smiled, he snuggled, he slept so soundly, and he was just too precious.  It was a glorious sunny day in the pacific northwest.  We went outside for some family photos and decided to do some of his portraits outside in the sun.  He loved it and the doggies were digging’ in also.

This was our second session.  In case any expecting mamas are wondering about sessions,  I highly recommend the nesting package so you can have me capture your maternity and the newborn images.  Ask me about it!

What a pleasure to work with this adorable family!  Here are some of my highlights from the session.  ❤

Meet little miss Reeve

 

 

 

This little miss will steal your heart.  She’s 10 days new, all cuddly and sweet.  A little miracle for her lovely parents.  She didn’t want to catch many zzzzzs while I was there.  She was very inquisitive and curious about what was happening. So we used some tricks and tried some new poses out.

I love when the parents are included in the session.  It’s so beautiful to see the love beaming from their faces.  I tear up seeing that.  I just try to hide my emotions so I can focus.

I am not liable for any baby fever you have after you look through these images!!

Meet Eva~Lynnwood Newborn

Eva was one of the names I loved when trying to pick one for Olivia.  And this little one is such a joy to her parents as ours is to us.  She was awake for most of our session which is wonderful.  I know you see so many sleeping baby pictures that are beautiful, but so are images of babies awake.  She was conveying so much in just 8 weeks of life.  Watching for look at her mother was breathtaking.

Doing what you love for work really is a blessing.  I’m out having fun, enjoying a little break from my life to joyfully observe others in their happiest occasions.  I have so much time to reflect on my own precious moments.  I don’t take them for granted.  And I end up making wonderful friends in the process.  In fact, Eva’s mom and I hope to have a coffee date soon.

Here are the highlights of my time with this little angel baby.

Meet Blaiz~Newborn

IMG_9294

Oh little Blaiz…..What a cutie!  What can I say about the sweet pureness of being only a few days old.  He’s another perfect little being.  I just wanted to cuddle him.  I was so excited when the family asked to come back with baby number two.  He has a lovely big sis watching over him and wonderful parents.  He was wide awake for most of the session which I am partial to.  I love newborns awake and asleep.  I love their curious nature and innocence.

So I ooohhhhed and ahhhhhhed over him

And came up with this batch of favorites.  I hope you have some ooooohhhhs and ahhhhs too.

Meet Alexis~Puyallup Newborn Photography

Here we are on a late Sunday night blogging away.  The weather has been changing so we’ll be back outside soon.  But we’ve had a baby boom in my business.  All the sessions have been little newborns lately.  And I’m LOVING it.  You guys are welcome to bring over as many as possible!

This little one was so content.  The parents were natural pros, adoring her every minute.  I noticed they were crafty and creative when I arrived at their home.  So we incorporated some of the décor into the shoot. They also had homemade headbands made up ready to use.  I was impressed.  So here is just a glimpse of our session of oooshie gooshie dreamy baby bliss.  Awwww……

And here’s a huge thank you to Andrea for giving this gift to the family.  What a wonderful friend you are to be so generous!  You are a gem!

Meet the Speers~Newborn Photography

I have returned from vacationing in sunny Mexico.  Boy, it was great to feel the warmth of the sun on my body.  But most of all I’m thankful that the four of us spent every second (well mostly) together for 8 days straight.  We needed it and I’m sad to be back to the long hours away from my love.  So I’m saturating my time editing photos.  I have so much to share with you all.  First, is this wonderful newborn session with a gorgeous family inside and out.

They welcomed a daughter the end of January.  She is an oooshie gooshie delight.  And big brother is loving her!!!  She was smothered with love and kisses.  So adored by her family.  What a gift!  I am very happy for them!

“When they placed you in my arms, you slipped into my heart.” ♥

Meet Conner~Mill Creek, WA Newborn

Life is such a miracle and blessing.  I really treasure each time I’m allowed into a family’s first moments experiencing their new lives with that new miracle.  It’s as if life stands still for me in those two hours.  I’m lost in the warm and happy environment playing and snuggling the soft skin.  So I’m grateful to all the families inviting me in their lives.  You guys have touched my heart.

I love this little guy.  I hope you guys enjoy what I captured of his family.

Thank you Mandy and Eric!  Congratulations on having such a wonderful addition. 

It’s great to see my brother’s childhood friend grow up to be such a wonderful father.  xoxo
