One of my friends, who I went to Jr. High and High School, with recently had her first baby! I really enjoyed catching up with her and seeing the newest additions to her family, I can’t believe it has been 17 years since I last saw her! Its crazy how time goes by.
Her newborn son was two weeks old when he came in and was wide awake for the whole session, which was nice as I like to be able to capture some pictures of newborn babies with their eyes open. I absolutely LOVE how these newborn pictures turned out! Beautiful new Momma and gorgeous little man. Congrats to the new parents!

I don’t know if I already said this in previous posts, but I LOVE Tacoma! I use to live in Stadium District and it was walking distance from my favorite pub(Doyle’s!), right down the street from the waterfront, a short run to my work(at the time I was working as an Esthetician at Savi Day Spa), and minutes from my school(I was working on my graduate degree at UPS). Can you say perfect!? I miss it so much! OH! I forgot to mention, it was close to all of the pizza joints and I love PIZZA! My husband and I actually went on out first date at Malarkey’s! So many good times and memories.
I was scouting some locations and of course my little model came with me that day! I really enjoy just walking around Tacoma, as you can turn down a street and see something different and fun.

Happy Birthday to Audrey Grace! I love this little girl, look at her cute little face covered in frosting! I photographed Audrey when she was a newborn and I can’t believe how much she changed in one year. Parents, hold your babies tight, remember this time in their lives because it is true, it goes way too fast!
Audrey was all business, no smiles, but she totally rocked her serious cake eating face. I have to say I am really enjoy the creativity for the first year cake smashing sessions I have photographed so far – check out the pink balloon backdrop! I am so not creative so thanks to the parents who bring me these ideas!
Happy 1st Birthday Audrey! Now go stuff your face in some cake!

Bellies to Babies: Photographing Babyhood – Here he is at 2 months! I have to say, this little guy is so cute! He has been working his neck muscles and can hold his head up pretty well….and I actually was able to get him to smile today! I know more smiles will be coming but this is the first time I was able to capture it! CUTE! Wondering what he will be up to in a couple of weeks.

Scarlett Rose.  What.a.name!  This little angel is gorgeous!  She is 2 weeks old and I actually met her mom at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) on Tuesday and I had them in my studio the next day!  I am super excited as I finally had a little newborn girl in studio, most of the newborn babies I have had are boys and I haven’t had the chance to try out my headbands.  SO…Miss Scarlet was my headband model! LOVE!  Headbands were made by Missy Millan Designs – Check her out too! My favorite is the one is the green bow! I love green and sparkles!
