One of the best compliments a mom can give her is referring her friends and family for their newborn pictures.  I was honored to be Sylvia’s Bellevue newborn photographer after this guy’s sweet mom shared my information.  Bellevue is not too far from my Sumner studio location, especially since you are heading the opposite direction of morning commuters.  I am sure Sylvia’s mom would agree, it was worth the drive.  Sylvia was full of smiles for her newborn session. I was quick enough to capture several during our time together.

As a Tacoma newborn photographer I usually work with families from Sumner, Bonney Lake, Puyallup, Tacoma, Seattle and the surrounding areas to capture their brand new baby photos.  However, being close to Joint Base Lewis McChord, or JBLM, I have the unique opportunity to photograph babies whose families are from all over the United States!  It was so fun at Dakari’s newborn session getting a chance to hear about mom and dad’s travels and their family back home in North Carolina. All their family on the East Coast might not be able to snuggle this cute little guy yet, but I am sure they are enjoying having these photos to get a peek at the newest addition for now.

I am always so honored when a family chooses me to not only capture their baby’s newborn photographs, but also for additional sessions to capture their first year.  Check out this Tacoma newborn session for Aniston HERE and then take a look at how much she has grown in one year! We celebrated her first birthday with some classic styled images….and one of the great things about having your milestone session done in studio is that I provide all the outfits and props!  Mom choose to add a cake smash as well, and the lavender cake she brought (purchased from Safeway) matched Aniston’s first birthday party decor. I was inspired to add a touch of spring with some real pansy flowers.  Mom just loved how the final pictures turned out with this special touch!

Over the past several years, I have met so many great people in the birthing field. Some of the best relationships I have made have been with the lovely ladies at Tacoma’s The Birthing Inn freestanding birth center, where I had all three of my own children.  When this mama got in touch to ask me to be her Tacoma newborn photographer, I was especially honored because her sister is one of the midwives at TBI.  In fact, mama and I even had the same midwife for our natural birth.  When we met at her maternity session about a month before baby arrived, I felt an instant connection with Megan.  It was such an honor to capture these moments for her, when her sweet baby Goldie was brand new.  I am always happy that Megan offered to share her birth story here with you all.

My husband Jimi and I were so anxious for baby Goldie’s arrival. The news of her was a bit of a surprise as we we been recently engaged and planned our wedding and honeymoon weeks before finding out I was pregnant. We had planned on having her at The Birthing Inn located in Tacoma where my sister Katrina works as a midwife. We chose to have her involved but not be the clinical lead. She suggested we go with Neva and we loved her!Tacoma newborn Photographer goldieTacoma newborn Photographer goldie

As the pregnancy went on I began to realize I how inpatient I am, I wanted to hold our baby now! I couldn’t wait! As the weeks went by and my belly grew, I kept a countdown of how many days until she was due. I prepared my body as best as I could for a natura birth. I researched anything to help. Teas, exercises, diets to help with labor, and many many supplements.Tacoma newborn Photographer goldieTacoma newborn Photographer goldie

As we passed her due date, now by 4 days I was determined that she was going to come sooner then 41 weeks. On the morning of March 18th, I woke up and felt like today could finally be the day. My husband Jimi had mentioned a car show he wanted to go to so I encouraged him to get out of the house. By the time he left I felt those contractions getting stronger, “FINALLY” I thought! I talked with my sister about what was going on and stayed at home until they progressed even more. I showered, did my hair and makeup, even decided to paint my nails between the now intense contractions. I swept our kitchen floor while listening to what I call cardio music… DMX and other rappers. By 2pm I knew that Goldie is making her appearance soon! I told Jimi he needed to come home at 3:30. He got home At 4 and I told him soon, like really soon she is coming. At 4:15 my water broke and it was go time! He grabbed our bags and we headed to The Birthing Inn. Luckily it is only 15 minutes from our home. The only problem was that our Midwife Neva was out a bit longer then 15 minutes so my sister got there and met us at the parking lot. She was ready to catch Goldie in the parking lot!Tacoma newborn Photographer mom poseTacoma newborn Photographer goldie

We got inside and settled into our room. It was a sunny day at about 5 o’clock now. I was sitting hunkered over during contractions with a cool breeze on my face and could see the gorgeous spring day when I could focus between those intense contractions. Neva came, Tiffany the birthing assistant came and my sister could now be the sister instead of the clinical role. I moved to the lovely bed when it was push time. I wanted the fan on my face for breeze. I held my husbands hand in one hand and grabbed Tiffany’s pants with death grip on the other. Sorry again Tiffany! Push by push Goldie finally was here! When she came out at 5:50 all I could say is, “she is real!” and “I love you so much”. She laid on my chest for a while before moving to Jimi’s chest. One of the best things I have seen in my life. Our family. Wow. The overwhelming love in that room. I feel so blessed to bring a child into this world the way I did with a wonderful support team and family. Cheers to Goldie Rose Smith!Tacoma newborn Photographer dad with tattoos

I already shared a sneak peek from this Tacoma newborn baby photography session, now here is look at some of the best photographs from her photoshoot.  When mom and dad brought sweet little Penelope to my cozy natural light studio in downtown Sumner they were in for a treat.  I planned a classic neutral earthtone inspired session and incorporated fresh flowers and greenery as well.  The resulting images fit them like a glove! I first met these parents at their maternity session just a month earlier, but it was like we were old friends.  I heard about the arrival of their baby girl, and they shared how life was now as a family of three.  Of course they also had plenty of time to relax while my assistant and I took care of their little one and posed her for her adorable newborn portraits. I am really looking forward to see how Penelope looks as she grows and changes during her first year and beyond.

This Lake Tapps baby photographer just might have swooned when little miss Avery arrived for her Watch Me Grow session.  I mean seriously, could she be any cuter??! Not only is this girl adorable, she was full of expressions.  She pretty much let me do anything I wanted. She let me play dress up with all the classic, yet girlie, baby clothes I have in studio.  The nice thing about these Watch Me Grow sessions is that not only do we capture your little one at each stage, like tummy time, sitting, crawling, standing and first birthday, but everything you need is provided including props and outfits.  All you have to do is bring your baby and you will go home with beautiful artistic images. Images that are sure to become family treasures.
