    Best Maternity Photographers in Puyallup

This little guy is part of my Bellies to Babies Campaign: Photographing Babyhood and I can not believe he is already four months old! I could photograph this guy all day. He just discovered his little chubby toes! I love it when babies “discover” their toes, and it always amazes me how flexible they are at this age too. He can’t quite sit up yet by himself, but look at him try with his momma’s help. Check out his little baby arm chub! I love four month old babies!


I can’t believe Landon is three months old! It seems like yesterday I was doing his newborn portraits. Landon is so cute! Look at his little face and his little hands! I love babies at this stage as they are able to provide some expressions and usually start smiling! And we were able to get a sibling picture, that was a challenge, but somehow we pulled this off! Happy Three Months to Baby Landon!


This is the year that you will give the mom’s in your life, yourself included, a gift that will last a lifetime.

Moms, when is the last time you had a picture with your children? I know some moms, myself included, will say, “Oh, I’m too fat or I don’t look the way I want to” and bow out of pictures.  When will you ever look the way you want?  By that time, will you be too old? Will your children be grown?  Will your new excuse be “I look old, I have too many wrinkles”?

The time is NOW. Stop waiting for the “perfect moment” to exist in photographs for your children, exist in them NOW!  Life is so short, and you don’t to look back and say “I wish I would have been in that picture”.

I have no pictures of myself and my mom while I was growing up, I wish I did. I wish I saw how my mom was back then. Even if she thought she was overweight, I still see her as BEAUTIFUL! She’s my mom and I want that memory of her for myself and my daughter.

Moms be present in pictures, leave an image of yourself  for your children and  future generations.  I believe every woman deserves at least one beautiful picture of herself AND I believe her children deserve at least one picture of themselves with their mom.

These sessions will be all about a mom and her love for her babies, so there will be no props or fancy backgrounds. Be prepared to laugh, snuggle, and love on your kiddos during the time we are together.  I recommend wearing a simple wardrobe of soft colors such as beige, soft grays, whites, creams, etc.

I love photographing Tweens as I have the opportunity to document the transition from childhood to the teenage years. There is still that innocence in a tween and I enjoying being able to capture that. I had an awesome time doing this Tween’s Modern Beauty session in my home studio in Kent, isn’t Ayden gorgeous!? She has so much potential and I am looking forward to seeing her life unfolds!  Hair and Makeup: MaeBelle Lei Ann with Downtown Lash and Beauty Co.  Remember this special time in your tween’s life, it’s only here for a short time.


I absolutely LOVE doing maternity portraits! This is such an amazing time in the lives of the parents to be and even more amazing for the mother as she can feel the baby’s every movement. When I was pregnant, for some reason, it didn’t even cross my mind to have pregnancy pictures taken. I was busy with appointments and getting the house ready. I wish I had slowed down long enough to enjoy that time and I wish I had beautiful pictures of myself so I can look back at that time now.
Don’t be me! Document this time in your life so you will have gorgeous pictures of yourself when you were pregnant! Celebrate the beauty of being pregnant. I know, you might be saying, ugh I’m fat and uncomfortable and don’t look good. WELL! That is where my team comes in! I have a very talented makeup artist and hairstylist who will pamper you and make you feel gorgeous! Take a day for yourself to have your hair and makeup done, to feel beautiful and let me help you document your pregnancy. You deserve this and you need a little bit of “me time” before your new baby comes. Embrace your new shape!
