Seattle Children's Milestone Photographer - Twin boy & girl session

I am so happy to share this special milestone with you all. I photographed these two for their newborn session. And as a Seattle newborn photographer, it is always a special time when you get to photograph TWINS! There one year session did not disappoint either. They came full of personality and fun. Here are some of my favorites from their Twin One Year Session...

It is so fun to see the dynamic between siblings and when you have twins in the studio, they really do run the show! It's interesting to see how different they are with one another and then how their personalities change a bit when they are one on one...

This little miss was so darling in the studio's vintage dress. This is one of my favorite pink dresses to use for milestone sessions. Its so quant and unique, and the details on it are so lovely!

Seattle Baby Milestone Photographer - One year milestone & Cake smash

As a Seattle newborn and children's photographer, I just love seeing babes come in for their one year milestone session after I photographed their newborn and/or 6 month sitter session. You get to see so much personality come out and yet I still see so much of them as a little baby. 

This little man was so much fun, he rolled with every set up and was in such a good mood. He made my job so easy!

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

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...

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...

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!!

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

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?!!!!

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.

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...

{ I found this vintage apron dress at a local shop in Tacoma. I always love when I find vintage pieces that are well taken care of. It became the perfect outfit for this session!! This piece is still in our studio wardrobe for borrow during your children's milestone session! }
