    Best Maternity Photographers in Puyallup

Today was pretty awesome as I had a chance to meet up with a fellow photog Holli Margell. (http://holliwithani.com/) We met at Sculpture Park and I didn’t realize how cold it was going to be so I wore a short sleeved shirt and capris pants, YIKES! I brought Rio with me and poor thing, she was freezing her little buns off, even after I gave her my coat. I really enjoyed meeting Holli and getting to know her, she was very personable, down to earth, and fun! I usually don’t have a chance to just stare at someone’s face when I first meet them, that would be creepy right!? But during my post production, I have the opportunity to really study people’s faces and really see them and their beauty. Holli is gorgeous, she has a contagious smile that radiates through her whole body and lights up her whole face. I am so glad to have had the chance to meet her, have you ever met someone and were immediately comfortable with them, like they were an old friend or like your souls recognize each other? That is how I felt with Holli, totally awesome experience! Anyways, check her out! OH!!! The picture that has horrible coloring (it was my metering test shot) I added that one because you can see my stalker daughter in the background creeping up on Holli, I thought it was cute!

This little one was the first baby to be photographed for the Bellies to Babies Campaign, can you believe it has been a month since I did this kiddo’s newborn baby session?  He’s no longer a newborn 🙁    and he is changing so fast.  He was wide awake for this session which was awesome as I had the chance to photograph his gorgeous blue eyes.  We posed him on a Seahawks blanket and he held his head up for us…is this a sign?  LOL! I don’t know if it is a good sign for the Seahawks but it sure made for a pretty epic picture! Looking forward to seeing this little one next month for his portrait session.

This little man came into my home studio in Kent today for a mini photography session. He is adorable! We had a good little conversation before the session started, he was all smiles and had a lot to say. I’m really glad he came in with his little hat as it was super cute. I love how chunky his little legs are, I forgot how chunky babies are – LOVE! baby-boy-in-owl-knit-hatbaby-boy-in-owl-knit-hatbaby-boy-in-owl-knit-hat

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day that I had to get out and do something. Rio, and I met up with my dad at the Tacoma Children’s Museum , awesome place by the way, if you haven’t been there, go check it out! There were a ton of kiddos there and a lot of activities to keep their little bodies busy. Rio of course loved the water tables, I am sure if she were able to, she’d jump right in and play for hours!  This would be a fun place to do some lifestyle type portraits.

This is the second family session I have photographed for the Babies to Bellies campaign.  This little man is adorable!  Can I say it was quite an adventure having him and his brother in studio –  Lets just say there were plenty of messes to clean up!  But I think we all had  a good time.  I love this newborn’s toes, so cute!  I think my favorite picture is of the baby and his brother, his brother is already giving him a mischievous look . . .
