I met Henry just a couple weeks ago during his little brother's newborn session. He came to my home studio here in Maple Valley last week for his big 2 year shoot!!! I know first hand how impossible it can appear to get just a single shot of a toddler around this age, but we just worked with what he wanted to do. Henry made me laugh, pulling many different props in to sit on, but hey, at least he sat and gave us some smiles!!

Boy oh boy, did I hit the jackpot with this little guy! He was THE BEST newborn I have photographed to date. I feel very spoiled. Little Ethan didn't mind sleeping the entire time and nothing in the world could disturb him. The few moments he was awake was all too precious and just as still as can be. I absolutely adored everything about this shoot. Thank you, Ethan!!
Mom and dad were just gorgeous and I am so pleased with the family shots we got. Even with furry, big sister Lucy, we got perfect photos. I am so happy how the new year is coming along for me. It really gets me excited for all the babies due soon. I really want to focus and continue to grow with each shoot.
Here are just SOME of my favorites!!

My very first newborn session of 2015 was this little guy… 12 day new baby William! He came into this world a little earlier than his due date, but mom and baby got out of the hospital just in time to celebrate Christmas!
Big brother Henry (who I get to photograph for his 2 year session in a couple weeks) wasn't all too interested in taking photos with his new baby brother, but I was able to snap some kisses from Henry AND some smiles from William.

I came across this location last year (so hard to find since most photographers don't like to share locations!) and I am so happy I finally got to use it. This old abandoned place that people refer to as the Mayflower Dairy Farm in Puyallup doesn't have an exact address, but since I don't believe telling other photographers my locations will hurt my business, here is a mappable address: 4412 Military Rd E, Tacoma WA 98446. You're welcome ;)
Michele is expecting a baby boy next month and we got her in for maternity photos just in time! We got very lucky with the weather, and although it was a pretty foggy day, we avoided the rain and freezing weather. Pretty good for the first weekend of January in the Pacific Northwest!! Not only did we get great shots with dad-to-be, but big brother "Trooper" made an adorable appearance for some poses. He's a great little guy. Here are a few of my favorites from their session. Looking forward to photographing their newborn for them!!
It has been 4 months since Owen's newborn session and he was just as good this time around as he was then! It is so amazing how much these babies mature in just the matter of a few months. He is one happy guy and we got tons of expressions from him during his mini milestone session. Mom surprised me with the fact that he is already starting to sit up on his own… only 4 months old!! I can guarantee we will get some awesome shots at his 6 month session coming up. It is so nice to be able to watch this little guy grow through my lens.
