Can you even stand how adorable this family is! I am so happy they came to me for there portraits. They are some more out-of-towners visiting family and scheduled a shoot. I photographed the mom some years back before marriage and her adorable baby girl came along.
They brought along the adorable props. The childhood heirloom chair, the giant pink balloon~I’m obsessed. I think the 8-12 months age is just heaven. They can’t run from me yet! Everything that comes in their path is amazement and wonder. I wish I could share the entire session!
*But here are my absolute favorites*
I was able to photograph this sweetheart thanks to an online referral on a Facebook discussion board for Bellevue. I have no idea who that was, but I am so thankful. I really want to thank all my clients for all their referrals. You guys are so appreciated!! I feel like it’s the absolute best way to find the best clients.
I adore these three. Emma was such a sleepy dream. I love those wrinkled elbows and shoulders. LOVE them! I am really able to get my baby fix with these little tiny humans. The little cries and facial expressions are so sweet. I miss that. So I hope this gives you guys that little “baby fix” as well.
One of my favorites family came back with a new edition to the family! She is so precious and snuggly! I could have played all afternoon with her. She was very alert the whole time. And big sister was loving on her. It was so adorable to watch.
I’m so happy for you guys! Thanks so much for having me back. It was so special that your parents were there too.
Here are some of my favorites. I may have a special fondness for newborn photos. There is just so much love around them beaming from everyone’s faces. The emotions are streaming all around too. I hope you guys enjoy these!
This post is full of love and joy! I just love these guys! They have such an adorable little chubster with the most amazing lips! You just want to squish him!! We have lots of fun together. I can only imagine the fun times ahead. I feel very honored I got to photograph this trio.
I happen to have a pretty awesome little lake a few blocks away that I love to use for sessions. So some of the shots are taken there and the others at my house. I hope you guys enjoy some of my favorites.
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!!
It’s wonderful to watch your clients growing families. Since newborns, I have been capturing these two. They are just about perfect every time. I don’t even have to run to chase them. :)- I did however, try out a new product I have to capture their attention. I used a camera lens buddy off Etsy. And it worked like a charm. If you have the time you could knit one for yourself pretty easily.
This location is right by my house. This works well to have some studio shots and outdoor shots in the colder weather months. So then the kiddos are only outside for around a half an hour or so. Here are a few of my favorites from our session.
I hope you all enjoy your time off with your families this weekend. AND….. Go Hawks!!
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.
I’d like you guys to meet a couple of miracles I know. These two are so special to me…. I couldn’t possibly know where to begin except it’s a miracle they are both here with both of their parents. I cry just thinking about it. For awareness sake, this is the condition that almost took everything from them.
But here they are healthy and happy today. They are surrounded by loving family and friends, thriving with happiness.
We all hug our babies a little tighter and longer because of them. I love you guys!
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.
What a bunch of cuties right!! I had a cousin shoot recently which is a wonderful idea for the family gift. What else can you get your parents that they would treasure forever and can’t get themselves. Their grandchildren’s beaming faces is one such gift. I’ve done this personally and it’s perfect.
We went to Heritage Park in Kirkland above the waterfront. It’s great it you want a dry place for the kiddos and still see the water. Also a great place to take your pooch.
Each of these cuties is full of energy,as you’ll see, and big contagious smiles. I hope you all enjoy the lifestyle shoot.
