Sweet & Spunky Mama – Pregnancy Session

Mama called last week and was right in the 34-36 window. Perfect timing! She had the perfect little round belly and she still fit into her pre-pregnancy SKINNY JEANS (be sure to pick up your jaw from the floor, I had to)! Of course, the session would not be complete without daddy. Both mom & dad are in the Navy. Dad had to travel from Bremerton while my is stationed here in Oak Harbor. We kept the session simple, with just a few clothing changes for mom and one backdrop. But mom kept it upbeat and full of giggles with her joyful and magnetic personality! Beauty and fun all in one! Thank you so much for choosing me. It was such a pleasure to work with you.

Never Too Old For a Little Cake Smashing – Birthday Session

Every birthday is not complete without cake. For my birthday sessions, I welcome cake at any age. This session was no exception. I had not seen little M since she her older sister turned 5. That session was done about 4 years ago, so she was just a little over 1 year old.  Mom said she was going to be very shy, and she was… for a few minutes. She soon perked up and was acting like every 5 year old I’ve photographed, spunky and giggly.

She was SO ready to get into that cupcake. So she didn’t really do a whole lot of smashing and getting messy with her cupcake, but she did dig in with a nice, big bite! Purple frosting all over and she loved it! Mom & I got a kick out it also. We just made sure that she didn’t wipe or drop any on her dress.

Sweet Little Cupcake – 1st Birthday

I’ve known daddy for at least 10 years. I remember when he was young and girls were gross to him. The next thing I know – he’s an adult. Then he got married, then his first baby was born. Time has surely flown by so quickly. It’s amazing and such an honor to be able to capture these moments for the next generation.

Little G was ready to go when she came in. She wasn’t shy at all. But she did prefer to have the stage to herself. Although I know she loves her mommy and daddy, when it came to this session, she owned the floor. We quickly did a few family portraits and then set up for cake. She was all ready to go and then, she paused. It’s quite common at these cake-smash sessions. Some kids just stop and stare, maybe wondering what they are supposed to do with it. Dad gave her a little taste of the frosting and then her eyes lit up and she was digging in.

Happy Birthday again little girl! I look forward to watching you grow up.

Oh The Places You Will Go! – Pregnancy Session

I was asked to do portraits of and in the nursery for this session. It was fun to see and capture all the little details. Mama’s sister was visiting from out of state and painted this little guy’s nursery with Dr. Seuss’s cotton-like trees to go with his theme. A “Cat in the Hat” doll was also included along with books and knock-knacks.

Once we were done in the nursery we headed outside for a just a few more images of mama. We literally went around the corner where there was some shade, evergreens, tall grass and two cherry trees that had blossomed. I had scouted the area when I first received the inquiry and am so glad we didn’t go anywhere else. Although at first glance it looked kind of plain, it was perfect for portraits. A big thanks and shout out to mama’s sister who was my awesome reflector assistant!
