Meet Katie~21 days~Duvall Newborn Photographer

Another new life arrived for photographs this week.  She was 21 days new.  She brought along her adorable big sister who enjoyed all of Olivia’s toys and patiently waited her turn.  We started at Lake Rasmussen which is a close to my place.  It was as beautiful as ever there.  This was also the first time big sis (she is two) got to hold her sister.  It was very sweet to watch.  She was very gentle and loving as you can see.

I used some very precious tie backs from Carli.  The white fawn and the green ones are from her shop.  If you are local and make newborn props message me.  I’d love to add some more pretties to my collection.

Here are just a few of my favorites of this darling family.

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~

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.

Emma is One~Duvall Studio

This little cutie was back for her one year photos.  The highlight of course was the cake smash.  It was exploding with cuteness for me to watch her devour her cupcake.  She didn’t hesitate for a second to begin digging in.  Just a few crumbs remained.

Since the weather had been so terrible, dark, and rainy I’ve had many of my sessions  postpone in hopes of the sun making an appearance. But this doll could come hang in the studio.  So we had no problems capturing her curious nature and that million dollar smile (I had that saying said about my daughter so it makes me laugh inside to write it out with the memory attached to her too).

After a year goes by you see this totally different tiny human arrive.  It’s really amazing.  One thing remained the same, however, her sweet happy nature and the joy in her mamas eyes as she watches her.  I’m sure I have the most obnoxious smile on my smile observing. So pay no attention to my expressions while I photograph you.  Inside my head I’m screaming I LOVE MY JOB! Next up are a couple of family sessions.  So make sure to come back for a peek.

Here are some of my favorite images~

 

Meet the Wiggins~

Here is a special session with a family I adore.  These images were taken at their property.  So please don’t hesitate to have me come to your place for sessions.  Parks are great.  But your home has such special meaning and uniqueness.

And what about all those fall colors!!!  We are coming to an end of the fall season of photo sessions.  If you missed out please plan ahead for spring.  It’s the next best time of the year for sessions.

And now time for my favorites.  What a gorgeous family inside and out.  And the most expressive 3 month old I’ve ever photographed.  I just love her.

Meet Emma~2 weeks

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.

ENJOY

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 Josie~In Studio, Duvall

Hello Spring!  Hello new little humans. 

My first new little lady to meet is Josie.  What a real little dolly.  She’s three weeks new on this day.  A very alert and curious sweetheart.  It was a dark overcast day, but we captured the little light we could.  Of course now we have summer weather happening here in the PNW.  Weather is sure a gamble in these parts.  We played, snuggled, wrapped, unwrapped, and played some more.  I thought it was super cute that she liked to be sitting up when changing outfits.  I like a girl that knows what she wants!  😉IMG_2146

So here is a new layout for the images I’m giving a try.  I have some new upgrades that I have purchased so feel free to private message me feedback.  I have a new online gallery that is superior to the old format.  So make sure you check it out.  I do not have all the older sessions uploaded.  However, if you would like to have yours up to see what cool things you can now purchase just let me know.

Enjoy this little beauty!

Meet Fidel~Newborn in the studio

I had the pleasure of working with this family and their precious boy!  He was a gift to work with.  He was awake and alert.  I always forget how teeny tiny newborns are.  So it’s always a treat for me to have met another baby and share in the joy surrounding them.

I love this saying:  a baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was missing.  Isn’t that the truth!  You will find out what that means when you have this experience in life.  So for me to know that feeling and then see others love for their babies, I’m pretty much blissing out.

Thanks for listening to me ramble and enjoy the highlights on this session.

Meet the Cooks~Lake Rasmussen, Duvall

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.
