Welcoming a New Little Life {Seattle Newborn Photographer}

I adore babies and I would have ten more if I could. But since I can't, I'll have to stick to photographing them. To me, the most natural place to photograph a newborn is in the baby's own home. This is the environment in which they are going to grow, form relationships, and reach milestones. I adore lifestyle sessions. The focus is on connections, and not simply pretty photos of the baby. One thing you don't have to worry about before a lifestyle newborn session is cleaning your whole house top to bottom. Of course, clearing out some clutter helps, but we really don't need a ton of space. The vast majority of this session was taken on the master bed. 

This family was so sweet and his big sisters were clearly so in love with their new little brother. They doted on him and it was so lovely to watch. It's always special to see a family with two girls and a boy, because that was my family growing up. I was the second girl in mine, and I know that this little boy is going to continue to be loved on and looked after, with maybe just a few scuffles involved ;)

Five Minute Photo Shoot with your Baby {Seattle Newborn Photographer}

Welcoming a new baby is exhausting and sometimes taking photos can be the furthest thing from your mind. But you know it goes so quickly and you want to document this new precious life too. Here's a quick way to get a variety of images in less than 5 minutes. I recommend using the master bed, but the crib works well too. The best way to get a variety of images is to change your shooting angle. Stand above the baby, then side on. Take a whole body shot,, then zoom in (or lean in if using a prime lens) and just photograph the face. Take the detail shots (belly button, hands, feet) then change angles again. Shoot above, then from the side. Keep it simple. Often we overthink things, but this is such an easy way to get variety and it can be done in a short amount of time. Watch for facial expressions too. Whether they're awake or asleep, newborns have a variety of cute facial expressions that you'll want to capture. These images below were taken in about 3-4 minutes. Have fun and enjoy that baby!

Welcome to My New Site {Seattle Family Photographer}

I am so thrilled to have a brand new site here. My old one served me well for several years but I felt like it was time for something new. My focus lately has been on in home sessions and I wanted a new site to reflect that. 

I adore in home sessions. Families are in their most comfortable space and instead of stressing about all that's going on around them, they can relax and just be with one another. Sessions with me are a giant love fest. The whole time is spent loving on your kids without any awkward poses or fake smiles.

I'm so glad you're here. Take a look around and if you have any questions, please drop me an email!
