Ephraim is ONE Month!

Seattle, WA

My baby boy turned 1 month old today! I can’t believe the milestones are already happening.  Ephraim is a lot more social, locking eyes and starting to make fun noises accompanied by big grins or stink faces. Big stretches and deep snuggles after a full tummy from nursing are some of my favorite moments with baby E. Happy 1 month little man!

Newborn Madeleine

University Place, WA

Meet Madeleine. She was one of the most sweet spirited and calm baby I have photographed that was awake! Usually when I do newborn portraits I ask the mother to make sure their baby has just been fed and is about to or is dozed off if possible or if I can come during their nap time. It helps because they do not get frustrated or irritated when you are trying to situate them. Yet, Madeline was wide-eyed and ready. She made quite an adorable model and one that was ready for the camera! She will be rooted in French culture as her mother whispered french to her to sooth her and her room was decorated in lavender and Eiffel tower art. I loved it. It brought back memories of my time in France and Switzerland. I have missed this dialect and it made this precious time with her so much more fun! Welcome to the world Madeleine!newborn_Madeline newborn_Madeline_12 newborn_Madeline_11 newborn_Madeline_10 newborn_Madeline_9 newborn_Madeline_8 newborn_Madeline_7 newborn_Madeline_6 newborn_Madeline_5 newborn_Madeline_4 newborn_Madeline_3 newborn_Madeline_2 newborn_Madeline_1

Cullinane Maternity

Vashon, WA

Aly and DJ are expecting a little girl mid-April! This precious baby girl will be named Kennedy Rae. I am so excited to meet her once she is here and hope to do some newborn shots! We planned this photo shoot on Presidents Day this last week. I was nervous we were going to have to re-schedule because the weather was so horrible! The day before was very stormy and poured all day! Yet as the morning came, we had a window of time where it cleared out for some cold, but clear weather! So we ventured out on the beautiful winter beaches of Vashon Island where our family beach homes are located. Isn’t Aly a hot mama?!
