I was looking through my portfolio from 2016 and I realized that I have a gap of ages. I often will photograph a newborn and not see that kiddo again until they are 2 or so for another round of family photos. This in between age can be tricky because they can’t stay out too late to get the pretty sunset shots and if they are young enough, they can be a bit floppy! 🙂

So a goal of mine this year is to photograph more babies between 6 months and a year and a half. It works really well to hold these sessions in your home. Most babies love visitors and they get to snuggle with mom and dad in the comforts of home. If you have a baby in this range, you won’t want to miss capturing those chubby cheeks, big eyes and happy smiles.

This particular session took pace in the Seattle area. So I can now call myself a Seattle baby photographer! 🙂

Last year I ended up photographing only a handful of maternity clients. I really missed them so I made an effort to save room in my calendar for more bellies!  I love these shoots because it is nice to not have to worry about kiddo bedtimes or other restrictions which means we can wander around any find pretty pockets of light. This lovely couple came over on the ferry from Seattle and we met at the Bainbridge Island docks. I am so used to shooting in nature that it takes me a minute to adjust to an urban environment but I love finding cool walls and thinking of new ways to use light.

Just last week I got to meet the sweet little babe in this belly in person. Those photos coming soon!

This month our challenge was “video portrait” and I must admit, I did struggle with a concept. And then once I had the concept, my subject wasn’t cooperating! But I am pretty happy with this portrait of my youngest.

Another newborn session that took me across the water! This time to Snohomish. Even though the words Bainbridge Island and Seattle newborn photographer are written all over the place on this blog, I love going beyond those places. On the way to Snohomish,  I got to drive through some very pretty areas that I had never seen before on my way to meet this cute little babe. We lucked out with some great light and also a very fun pup! People always wonder if they can include their dog into their session and I always say yes! It can be a little unpredictable but it always results in some sweet images. Dogs all seem to have the same energy towards new babies, they are not too sure about this new little thing but it is clear they need to be gentle and they always are. When photographing dogs and babies, the goal is not to have a posed portrait between the two but instead capture some natural interaction. I always try to get the dog smelling baby’s little head!

So two takeaways from this session: I love to travel 🙂 and I love photographing dogs and babies together!

This has been a winter full of newborns and I have loved all of them. Every once in a while, I will get to travel to Seattle or beyond for newborn sessions. I love to travel so I always get excited to go on newborn and family session adventures outside of Kitsap county. In fact, only two of my newborn sessions so far this year have taken place in Kitsap county. So if you live across the water in Seattle or beyond, feel free to message me! I love coming over on the ferry. Interestingly enough- all my sessions this year outside of Kitsap have taken place in Kirkland, WA, a lovely town I have enjoyed visiting. A very fun coincidence.  I have a session later this month coming up in Snohomish County and another in Everett! I feel very lucky to meet families all over this side of the state.

However, this has shown me that I need to make my presence known better here in Kitsap county for mama’s to be 🙂 So Kitsap moms and dads, if you are ready to have sweet little babe and want some low key, snuggly photos of them, you have a Kitsap newborn photographer not far away and would love to meet you! I also offer reduced maternity photo packages when booked with a newborn sessions.

Another month, another video project! This time our theme was “get in the frame” and I had a much grander idea for this video than I was able to produce because my skills are not quite up to my creativity! But it was still so fun to film this with my girls!

 

Next up, you can see Tiffany Kelly’s video HERE. 🙂
