"When the mountains call, I must go."

I never really understood that quote. Growing up in Washington, we were water people. My grandparents and great-grandparent had houses near and on the water. We had a cabin on an island and a boat. We weren't much of skiers or snowboarder, and when we hiked. We hiked to the beach. So, my experiences with the mountains in Washington were limited. And it is safe to say I was a bit sheltered when it came to knowing of our mountains and their greatness.

I must say, I am hooked. There is something so surreal about being up at Mt Rainier in the summer. And there is no proper way to explain it. For me, it feels like you've walked into a story book. The trees are lush, the birds are chirping, the flowers in full bloom. It is heavenly...

I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful Tacoma family for their summer family session, and it was so much fun to walking around and playing in the sunshine. I love it when families show up relaxed and ready for whatever I throw at them. And they did just that. We sang some songs, and got to know each other a bit. But, for the most part I just let them be. I let them enjoy their sweet baby boy, and it was so fun to document...

Over the years of photographing families all over the Seattle and Tacoma area, I have noticed one thing that truly sets apart a beautiful gallery from an extraordinary one and that is the clients are themselves. They come and have fun. And though I do lead in to some poses that allow more natural interactions, I love seeing people really laugh and enjoy the moment. Because, that is really what having a photo is about right? Capturing a moment...

When working with each and every couple and family, it is so important to me that they are comfortable with me and enjoy their experience. It brings out so much more expression and love when you are comfortable with your photographer.

As most locations in the Seattle and Tacoma area, there is a nice variety of spots around the park to shoot making a nice variety of images within the gallery. Mom changed dresses and we switched spots and I was so in love with the softness of the yellow with the cream lace...

Each newborn session is done slightly different, as each family's color and prop preferences are different. It is so fun to see parents pick and choose colors that they love, and be apart of the session and styling. Our Seattle newborn photo studio is full of gorgeous handmade headbands and bonnets. We are stocked full with buckets and baskets, wraps and pretty layers. Making your session as easy as just showing up with baby. 

Working through this session with this gorgeous family, we had selecting lots of neutral and pastels for their styling and it all turned out so lovely.

Parent shots are one of my favorite series to document in a newborn session. They are so incredibly sweet and tender moments where parents get to hold, snuggle and smell their sweet babe. It is amazing how quickly they grow and often times when parents come back for their viewing appointment a couple of weeks later, baby has already grown so much they could never snuggle them in their two hands. The parent and newborn posing really does show perspective of how little they really are...

As a Seattle children's photographer, I just love when someone considers me to take their child's milestone photograph's.

I love being able to document the little details of the chubby legs and squishy little toes. As these features of little babies go away way to fast in my opinion.

Though every baby is different, as is every session and day. I always do my best to engage with baby to bring out the emotions every Mom and Dad want to see and remember. I often get told that I was able to capture their personality. And that is the best compliment. I want you to remember their personality at the different stages and milestone.

2018 - Seabrook Summer Beach Experience - Washington Family Photographer

As a Seattle and Tacoma area family photographer, I get to explore our local puget sound beaches with lots of families. Currently a resident of Brown's Point, Tacoma and with a photography studio in Sodo, Seattle; I have LOTS of beach spots that have become my favorite go-to's. But, growing up in Washington state there was something special about being able to go the ocean. The sand was soft, and the waves were big. The air was salty and local towns were adorned with cedar shakes. 

Over the years, I had been asked if I would travel to photograph at the ocean. I loved the idea, as we had spent summers traveling and camping the Washington coast. I just wasn't sure the logistics of getting my Seattle families out to the ocean, and finding an appropriate location seemed like a task. Until we arrived at Seabrook.

The town for those who haven't had the pleasure of visiting, is a bit picturesque itself. Adorable shops and sweet cottages dressed with quant coastal decor. This was it! I had found my little coastal photography session hostess!

seattle family photographer hoquim family photographer coastal beach session family beach photographs

Little did I know, the town was only one little slice of the big picture and my experience at the beach for this family's beach photo session was going to be nothing short of amazing!

The light was gorgeous, and the sand was as soft as I remember it was as a child. We had styled this family's photography session with gorgeous soft muted tones, and some outfits from the studio wardrobe. The sky was the perfect accent to their color pallet and it made for some gorgeous portraits...

The typical shenanigans went down, as well played and laughed. The kids ran through the breeze and we documented some amazing moments for this beautiful family. 

The 2018 Beach Session registration is LIVE and I am so excited to be photographing family sessions at the beautiful Seabrook this summer! You can register your family, and begin planning your coastal get away HERE .

Seattle Newborn Photographer - Baby Boy Newborn Session

As a Seattle and Tacoma area newborn photographer, I am lucky enough to meet lots of babies and lots of families. 

These perfect little humans come in to my Seattle photography studio, and are all so different and unique. It is so cool to see how truly unique each and every baby is. From eating and sleeping to soothing preferences, I have a lot of learning of each little babe in the couple of short hours we spend together.

seattle newborn photographer tacoma newborn photographer baby boy newborn photo ideas

Though some photographers may a have a standard go to of ways they handle a baby. As a posed newborn photographer, I like to see what baby enjoys the most. Does baby prefer to have their back patted or rubbed, Do they prefer a "shush" or a "humm"? Do they prefer to be wrapped or not? Do they prefer a sway or a bounce? Each baby is different, but once we get each ones soothing preferences figured out we can always get amazing portraits... and sometimes even some smiles when we nail it!

Seattle Newborn Photographer - Newborn Baby Photography Session

Just as each and every baby is different, every session is slightly different. Each client I work with gets a pre-session consultation where we get to talk about colors and tones, and plan their session accordingly. I love this part, as it really makes their images their own and allows their images to go beautifully in their home.

I love working with neutrals on both baby boys and baby girls as they create these gorgeous simple, low distraction, classic images. Don't get me wrong, I love me the props and as you will see I incorporate plenty of buckets and bonnets in my sessions. But, I always try and get some simple shots of baby on the bean bag with a neutral tone.

Seattle Children's Milestone Photographer - Baby Girl One Year Milestone

As a seattle newborn photographer, I get to see a lot of babies reach very special milestones. This is by far my favorite part of my job. Being a newborn and milestone photographer in seattle lets me be apart of documenting a babies first days, sitting up, walking and climbing. It is so fun to see how they grow and such a blessing to be apart of their lives. 

seattle baby photographer seattle newborn photographer seattle milestone photographer one year baby girl photoshoot

I was lucky enough, I had photographed this little girl for her newborn session, as well as her six month milestone and was so excited I was able to document her one year milestone session. 

Our seattle studio is fully stocked with most lovely props for babies to children, as well as dresses for Mama...and even a few coordinating shirts for Dad :)  This lovely sage romper by the talented My Darling Emma . Her gorgeous outfits are perfect for my milestone sessions! My seattle portrait studio is stoked full of gorgeous coordinating wraps and props so all my parents have to do is show up!

This little sweet pea was accompanied by her older brother, who I had photographed his one year milestone session a few years back. It was so special getting to see him as a big brother. The two of them laughed and played...it was so heartwarming.

Styling my sessions brings me so much joy, and being able to provide outfits for my clients make me so happy. It is so nice to see families come in, and just pick from a wardrobe than come in stressed out with trying to find "just the right outfits for their session" .

While sister took a little break for a snack and outfit change, I couldn't help but get some photos of just brother. 

We had so much fun, and how cute is he in his little suspenders?!!!! I just love suspenders and bare chest for boys, its so classic. 

When clients book me for a session, I love being able to discuss what colors and textures they use in their home. I like to get an idea for places they would enjoy seeing portraits hung and what colors those rooms look like. 

Grey and pink has been a very common theme on baby girl nursery colors, and I love being able to incorporate these colors in to the session and stylize with the end result of hanging portraits in a clients home.

I always save the cake smash portion of a photo session to the very end for multiple reasons.... First off, its usually a mess if it's a good smash! Secondly, some kiddos don't respond to the cake as well as others. I was really hoping his good mood would spill over in to the cake smash and we would have a good smiley one year cake smash session...

Seattle Children's Milestone Photographer - Magical Five Year Photoshoot

top seattle children's photographer best children's photographer seattle milestone photographer five year old milestone twin milestone session

When these girl's Mama messaged me about photographing their 5 year old milestone session, there was a part of me that just broke. As a Seattle milestone photographer, I get the pleasure of meeting and photographing lots of newborns, baby and children's milestones. These girls however, have been clients of mine from the beginning and watching them grow has given me so much joy...

top seattle children's photographer best children's photographer seattle milestone photographer five year old milestone twin milestone session

Just as my son, these twin girls were going to be heading off to kindergarten in the fall and Mom wanted to document this 5 year old milestone of theirs. And I think we both knew it needed to be special and magical...

top seattle children's photographer best children's photographer seattle milestone photographer five year old milestone twin milestone session

Being a spring session, the weather here in Seattle is always a concern. But, we got SO lucky. The sun was shinning and the temps were warm. Since we were shooting at a park, I wanted to compliment the beautiful grass and scenery as much as possible while not distracting from the girls so gold tones seemed to be the best bet...

It is amazing how much you can get out of kids if you just let them be. I blew up some balloons last minute as I had pulled a ton of different props for this session not really knowing what would fit or go while in the thick of shooting a twin 5 year old session at a park HA HA!!

top seattle children's photographer best children's photographer seattle milestone photographer five year old milestone twin milestone session

And as you can see, balloons for the win....

top seattle children's photographer best children's photographer seattle milestone photographer five year old milestone twin milestone session

As the sun started to peak through the clouds there was a beautiful pocket of lovely light, and well the girls saw my bubbles in my bag so, why not!? We headed over and while Mom blew bubbles I told the girls to pop and twirl and it made the most beautiful portraits of their personalities...

In closing...as I am writing in the middle of January! I AM SO READY for Spring time!!! 

 

Seattle Children's Milestone Photographer - Terrific Two Milestone Session

Two. The tricky age that has so many bad connotations to it.

I must say, I may be crazy but I LOVE TWO! I think two year old's have so much personality and they are so unfiltered still with their emotions making it so fun to photograph them. 

I love being able to see the wonder and their curiosity in their eyes! By the way, isn't this sweet girl's eyes just magical?!!!!

seattle children's milestone photographer toddler milestone session two year old girl milestone

When I first met this sweet girl it was a year ago when we were photographing her Mama's maternity session and she was becoming a big sister!! 

I love being able to see families grow, and it is a huge part of why I am a photographer. I love staying connected with families and watching kids reach milestones. 

seattle children's milestone photographer toddler milestone session two year old girl milestone
seattle children's milestone photographer toddler milestone session two year old girl milestone

One thing I've learned over the years with my own children and as a Seattle milestone photographer, is it is best to keep things short & sweet. 

Avoid too many props. Avoid too much chaos. Avoid just simply too much.

I shot this series within 10 minutes. And the first 5 minutes consisted of me just talking with her, and having my camera at my side. I kept my conversation light and fun. Talking about what they saw on the car ride to the studio? Any fun animals or cars that made silly noises? 

And then I let her talk, kept a high shutter speed and shot through our conversation about silly sounds and special animals...

I was able to capture the giggles, and still able to get her sweet innocent baby face that will soon be gone after these fleeting toddler years...

It is already 2018! And I can hardly believe I am almost a half a year behind on my journal posts! With the new Seattle studio move, the fall and winter family session craze, and enjoying the holidays with my family. BAM! It's the New Year! So forgive me while I catch up and share some beeeeaaaaaauitful sessions with you. 

First up, this beautiful baby Lola. She was my first newborn session in the new Seattle photography studio. I just love me a sweet baby girl in some neutrals and pastels, so as you will see this session won my heart.

I have had this teeny tiny bucket in the studio as a prop and had yet to find a little baby that fit in it just perfectly. We dressed this set up in the most beautiful peachy pink knit blanket & bonnet from one of my favorite knitter vendors: Mama Knits

This pretty peachy pink goodness reminds me so much of cotton candy!!! And isn't this teeny tiny little bucket just perfect for this sweet 6 lb babe?
