Baby W was a dream baby. He pretty much slept and let me pose him any which way for the entire session. The family was so laid back and go with the flow, even when we had the inevitable accidents which happen when you hold a naked newborn. I also captured one of my favorite sibling poses ever in this session, with Baby W. and big brother. Thank you for letting me into your home and capturing these sweet moments with Baby W!

 

Meet Baby W.

He was a looooooooooong baby. So adorable and squishy though.

Contemplative baby.

These cute hats were knitted by Baby W’s aunt.

Adorable frog baby!

The sweet daisies were placed there by big brother

Big brother and Baby W.

He slept through pretty much the entire session and let me pose him

I’m very behind on my blog posting! This sweet family was actually shot back in September 2010. Baby A was adorable and so alert for a newborn. I have to admit, all the baby girl newborn sessions end up with very alert and sweet babies. Baby boy newborns tend to be sleepier. I guess girls […]

 

I’m very behind on my blog posting! This sweet family was actually shot back in September 2010. Baby A was adorable and so alert for a newborn. I have to admit, all the baby girl newborn sessions end up with very alert and sweet babies. Baby boy newborns tend to be sleepier. I guess girls really do want to have fun!

 

Meet Baby A.

Hello, pleased to meet you sweetness! Look at that eye contact for a newborn, so alert!

Taking a moment with dad

I love how little she looks in dad’s hands here.

I did manage to capture some sleeping shots as well.

Hello Miss A!

Big brother snuck in for a shot or two as well.

So much cuteness in one family.

Once outside she did cooperate to fall asleep

Mom and Baby A

The entire family. Thank you for letting me capture this moment for you!

Big brother is now a big boy of three, and was a very good helper during little sister’s photoshoot. Thank you for allowing me to come capture Baby S and your entire sweet family! Enjoy your sneak peek.

 

Meet Baby S. Don’t let this picture fool you, we spent a big part of the day trying to get her to sleep.

Look at Miss Sweetness!

you’re never too young for diamonds

Mom told me that she came out with her hands wrapped around her ears, so we recreated that pose here. Heh!

having a mom and daughter chat

Dad was pretty awesome in being able to lull Baby S to sleep

Sweet sibling kisses

Big smiles from big brother

This picture doesn’t show it, but it was very windy and COLD this day. The family trooped out twice to have a family picture in the wind and cold, you can’t even tell, don’t they look happy?

{Two Sisters} Seattle Area Child Photographer

January 31st, 2012

I’m a out loud talker. If I’m in the grocery store, I’m the person talking about what’s on my list, and where can I find the red wine vinegar. My husband makes fun of me for doing this, but even he concedes that when you ask for something, you have a better chance of someone […]

 

I’m a out loud talker. If I’m in the grocery store, I’m the person talking about what’s on my list, and where can I find the red wine vinegar. My husband makes fun of me for doing this, but even he concedes that when you ask for something, you have a better chance of someone answering your question than if you never ask aloud. The age old adage, “ask and you shall receive”. Along that vein, a friend of mine was posting on a social media site that all her parents wanted for Christmas was a picture of both her girls together in the dresses they received from grandma. There were several problems with getting the picture as a) my friend works out of the house, b) the girls are both under the age of three and dragging them to the mall seemed like a chore and c) it was about a week before Christmas. I offered to come over to her home and take pictures of her girls for her. I’m way behind in my blogging, since these pictures were taken last month, but it was a win-win situation for everyone. Thank you for letting me photograph your adorable daughters!

 

Meet Older Sis. She was a hoot to capture on camera, and was so fun!

 

Ok, sit primly in this chair? I can do that for you, Ms. Photographer.

 

Little Sister was a tougher nut to crack to get to smile at me.

 

Look at those eyes! So soulful.

 

Older Sis was a dream, she pretty much did anything I asked. I love her expression here! It came out a lot.

 

But oh so adorable.

 

I finally coaxed a real smile from Little Sister

 

Oh look, I got them both into the same frame! Aren’t those dresses just precious?

 

And a last picture of a pretty pretty pink princess.

{Oh So Silly} Seattle Area Child Lifestyle Photographer

January 30th, 2012

So picture this scene. I’ve got the boys fed. Everyone’s gone potty. They aren’t fighting with each other. No lego robot wars are going on, or any stealth ninja Jedi swordfights. They even agree to sit on my little photography setup next to each other and I think, oh goodie! I’m finally going to get […]

 

So picture this scene. I’ve got the boys fed. Everyone’s gone potty. They aren’t fighting with each other. No lego robot wars are going on, or any stealth ninja Jedi swordfights. They even agree to sit on my little photography setup next to each other and I think, oh goodie! I’m finally going to get a nice shot of the boys together!

Then I snap the picture and get this. Ah well. I can always try another day. As much as I love the posed shots, I think the silly shots show off their personality much better.

Baby E., his three year old brother, and his parents came to visit me today for his newborn shoot. Baby E is a fireball who came four weeks early, so at the shoot today he was about the size of a full term newborn, about seven pounds. I have to admit, I have a real soft spot in my heart taking pictures of brothers together, and I was happy that Big Brother O. was amicable to posing with Baby Brother E for me and the camera. Even if I did have to break out the sweethart candy bribes. Big welcome to Baby E and congratulations on the new addition to the family!

 

Meet Baby E. I love shots like this, because it shows you just how tiny they are at this moment, and they’re never going to be this tiny again. Here he is, cradled by daddy.

 

Giddy up, little cowboy

 

Such sweetness! I love just how peaceful he looks here.

 

Don’t let all the sleeping poses fool you, he was a tough cookie to get to stay asleep. But when he was asleep, you could just nom on his little nose.

 

This is my favorite brother pose. Big brother is all, what IS this in my lap? Baby E is all, hey, I’m cool, just chillin’ in my blanket which matches my eyes.

 

Big Brother wasn’t so sure about all this picture taking.

 

They were much happier outside, I even got a little smile!

 

The new family of four!

{Trip to Tulip Town} – Seattle Area Child Photographer

Every year, we drive a little ways to see the tulips blooming up at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Mt. Vernon, WA.  Last year there was snow on tulips in late April, this year we were greeted with blustery winds and a sky which rained before and after our visit, but not actually on us while we were there.  The Tulip Festival is beautiful and gorgeous and such a bright display of color and light in an otherwise dreary Pacific Northwest rainy day.  My oldest son even showed up in the Seattle Times  (not my picture) wandering around the tulip fields!

My favorite thing about the festival is looking at the flowers.  My boys?  Obviously, the puddles and jumping over them.   Followed closely by the tractor ride around the tulip fields.  I don’t think we were able to keep my youngest out of any of the puddles there, and frankly, there were a lot of puddles.  The look of sheer joy as he stomped his foot to see the splash come back up was worth the drenched clothes.  Overall, it was a cold and wet visit, but it’s a family tradition which I wouldn’t give up for anything.

Welcome to Tulip Town, Mt. Vernon, WA.  The tulip is world’s peace flower.

This is a storyboard, which tells a story.  In this case, I wanted to showcase all the gorgeous blooms from the different tulip varieties. 

My oldest kept doing this for all the pictures.  I’m not sure if it was because it was super-windy and he liked the feeling of the wind between his arms, or he’s just being funny.  Most likely the latter.

See, the arms are up again!  He has a much more gleeful expression on his face in the red tulips, perhaps he liked them better than the pink ones.  :)

I tried to get both boys into the cute tulip action, but my youngest wasn’t having any inkling of cooperating with mommy.

I had much better luck sneaking up behind them.  I love how you can see the dried mud on both of them from their numerous falls in mud puddles while walking around the tulips.

This is perhaps, one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken of my boys.  I love that my oldest is still attached to the ground with some mud strings.  I love that my youngest is so bundled against the cold he looks like a sumo wrestler about to chest bump his brother.  And I love the puddles you can see them both trying to jump over. 

Another storyboard.  This one showing off my oldest son actually jumping over a puddle.  I love the lean he has in the first picture! 

Did I mention my son likes to jump?  :)

The required “go stick your nose in the flower, son!” pose.

By this time, he was wet, cold, tired, and oh so done posing for me.  I think his facial expression sums it up quite well.
