William's 3 Month | Seattle Baby Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

Yes, William is already 3 months old!!! He seriously was just here for his newborn session

3 month sessions are challenging for us photographers for many reasons. As most parents know, tummy time isn't favored by many, but that's only one of a few poses you can really do at this age. Little William had the hardest time lifting that head of his, but that look he gave me during the second attempt at a belly pose was priceless. 3 month olds also are just starting to explore with their hands and arms. This little guy cracked me up the entire mini shoot because he was so interested in his clenched fist! It was an amazing sight to him! 

Although little William wasn't in the mood for smiles, I promise at his 6 month session to see some happy gums!

Kayla's 9 Month | Seattle Baby Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

Little Miss Kayla was back for more!! This time, for her 9 month mini milestone session. She definitely rocked her 3 month and 6 month sessions, so I wasn't surprised how adorably perfect she was for me this time. She has been the best model for me and I look forward to all of our future sessions together.

At 9 months, Kayla is now on the move, but we got so many amazing shots in the 25 minutes before she fully warmed up to me and decided she was done and ready to explore! Although we are really looking forward to her 1 year cake smash in a few months, I hope time slows down a bit because it's so bittersweet watching these babies grow!!

Baby Khloe | Seattle Newborn Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

Meet 7 week old Khloe!! She came into the world a little earlier then expected and her Grandma found me, but not in time to do a full newborn session. I really stress that newborns are best photographed between 5-12 days new to ensure we get a very sleepy baby into those adorable, squishy poses. After about the 2nd week of life, these little guys and girls become much more alert and difficult to photograph. However, little Khloe needed photos before she got any bigger, so I welcomed her into my home studio here in Maple Valley for a little mini shoot. 

She wanted nothing more then to sprawl out and not be touched! What an adorable little stinker ;). I didn't expect tons of cooperation from her, but I am happy with the few poses we got. I wish we were able to get more in our time together because mom brought some adorable little outfits. Happy we got one photographed… baby and leopard, oh my cuteness!!!

Owen's 6 Month Session | Seattle Baby Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

Little Owen is growing way too fast!! But, I am so happy I get to take his photos so often. We've had his newborn sessionholiday mini session, and 4 month mini session! I'm literally watching him grow through my lens… I LOVE that!!

We had a great 6 month session for him last week. Little guy was full of smiles and character, but the moment I held up my camera… so much seriousness!!! He was definitely playing a little game with me. 

I am looking forward to the sessions ahead. Great thing about my mini milestone sessions is that they are fast and affordable, so it's worth coming back every few months in that first year. Happy 1/2 year, Owen!!

The Carson Family | Seattle Family Photographer | Discovery Park

I had the pleasure of photographing the Carson Family last weekend. They were such a fun group to work with!! We couldn't make an evening shoot doable, so we headed out as early as we could. Here we thought we would be dodging that Seattle gloom and rain, but instead, we were trying to beat that bright, harsh sun!!!

We met at Discovery Park in Seattle. This was my first time there, but I knew exactly where I wanted to be. These old buildings were perfect and we found great shade!! We got a lot done in our time together: family shots, grad pics, and even adorable couple photos. 

Enjoy some of my favorites…
