Stella {3 months} | Seattle Baby Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

Stella came in for a 3 month mini milestone session with her big sister, Natalie. I haven't seen Natalie since she was 3 months old herself. She has gotten so big and so cute!!

3 month sessions can be very tricky, as posing is near impossible, and it can be even more difficult when a little one isn't holding up their head yet. We still got adorable facial expressions from Stella. Natalie wasn't too in to taking pics, but maybe at the 6 month session, she'll have a change of heart and we can get her smiling!!

Maria | Seattle Maternity Photographer | Point Defiance Park, WA

This gorgeous mommy-to-be booked a "Belly to Baby" package with me. I don't shoot outdoors as often as I do indoors, but I do love outdoor maternity sessions. As the weather warms up, I am definitely getting to shoot outdoors more and more. The change of scenery is nice. And, the location that Maria chose for her maternity session was very beautiful. She wanted bold, vibrant colors and I would have to say that Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA delivered just that. 

I brought a lace maternity gown for some poses and we had a great time with that. Dad-to-be was a great assistant and we shared some laughs. There were far too many favorites of mine from the session, but here are some of the top ones. I am so excited to meet their baby boy!!

It has been 7 months since I have seen Lennex and she has grown so much since her newborn session!! I will let these photos from her mini milestone session speak for themselves because she is just too cute for words!!!

Levi {7 months} | Seattle Baby Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

In the midst of many milestone sessions last week, I met 7 month old Levi. Him, his mommy, and aunty came to my home studio in Maple Valley and we had a lot of fun!! It's amazing how many shots I can get in under 30 minutes. This little guy definitely gave us all sorts of expressions! I can't wait to see and photograph him again!!

Elise {3 Months} | Seattle Baby Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

I had the pleasure of meeting 3 month old Elise for a mini milestone session last week. She was quite the cutie!!! It's a bummer I didn't get to photograph her for her newborn photos, but I am still very excited about our sessions to come!

Some of my favorites from her session…

Owen {8 Months} | Seattle Baby Photographer | Maple Valley, WA

Oh, how this little guy is growing! I am so lucky I get to photograph him every couple of months. His personality just gets bigger and bigger. 

This time, for his 8 month mini milestone session, Owen was on the move!! I try to keep my mini milestone sessions moving fairly quickly for a reason. Not because I want to rush you through your short session, but because babies under one have a very short attention span and once they realize what is going on, they are done. And when they are done, there is usually no getting them back! Especially with my crawlers… they kind of are unsure where they are and what we are doing, so they will sit and grin for us at first. But, the minute they are comfortable and wanting to explore, it's almost impossible to get them to sit where we need them to for longer than 15 seconds. My mama's definitely get a workout!!!

Can't wait to see you again at 10 months, little man!!
