Professional Maternity Portraits | Puyallup's Maternity Photographer

I could not wait to share their stunning gallery with this gorgeous family from their Maternity Portraits! They were all dressed to perfection! Mommy to be is wearing one of the gowns from the collection I offer exclusively to my clients! The sun was out and I couldn't help but capture the gorgeous natural evening light for Cyprina's Professional Maternity Portrait Session! I can't wait until their fine art print order comes in! It will make for a BEAUTIFUL display in their home to enjoy this special time in their life time and time again.

Cake Smash Session | Tacoma Puyallup Photographer

I can't believe it has been 1 year since I have taken little Kane's newborn portraits. He was my first newborn client in Washington since my move from Texas. Kane couldn't have been more perfect of a baby and slept his whole session. 1 year later, here we are and he is still handsome as ever. It really does tug at my heart strings being able to be a part of these special milestones and seeing how my newborn clients have grown. 

 

Kane was all smiles for his 1 year portraits. I felt like I was really able to capture and see how his personality has developed and grown over the year. He definitely isn't a fan of cake though! We figured that one out real quick. Enjoy a peek into Kane's one year old portraits and cake smash (not so much smash) portraits! To Joe and Mandy, It has been amazing being a part of your lives and I appreciate and am so happy you chose me to be your family photographer. 

 

PS

Joe is an amazing tattoo artist and owner over at Clever Rebel Tattoo in Federal Way, Washington! Follow the link to check out his work. My husband is still trying to convince me to let him get another tattoo :P 

 

I love being able to share my clients fine art portraits displayed in their home! It brings such a smile to my face that my work is enjoyed daily.

Our family had decided that now, since we are in the Pacific Northwest we would get a live Christmas tree every year. It would be a tradition we can enjoy with our children as they grow. It is much more than just getting a tree though. It is the adventure and memories created in the process. This November marked our second year in Washington and we are loving every bit of it.

I am so thankful to have met the Smith family! Owners of S&S Evergreen U-Cut Tree Farm. This is their first year opening and I couldn't have been happier with the lovely selection of tree's they offered. You couldn't go wrong. Every tree was perfect! But after walking their farm, we found the PERFECT one for us. 

I of course was so excited to document our story this year. It is our first year celebrating Christmas as a complete family of 4!  

Kaleigh has recently discovered her love of 'candy cames' as she calls them. So when S&S Tree Farm gave her a candy cane to take on her adventure of finding a tree, her eyes lit up! I think that candy cane has a special appearance in every lifestyle portrait taken on our Christmas Tree Adventure.

My husband even snuck a few portraits in of me and the little man Carson. He was not so thrilled that day due to us waking him up from his nap. But he enjoys looking around at everything while being snuggled up to his mama.

I am so thankful for these times.

We shared many laughs and kisses  (sticky candy cane kisses I might add). I am happy that I can document this memories to relive. They are like little treasures I now have to hold on to that I can share with my kids when they are older and tell the stories of how we picked out our tree, and how she dropped her candy in the dirt and used the tree to clean it off (gross, I know) or got to ride their tractor with the tree farm owners son. These are all sweet little tid bits that I will hold tightly on to. Plus, did you see that guy up there ^    I mean, not to toot my own horn, but how did I get so lucky? He is so amazing. 

This is what I love about photographs. They have the ability to capture a moment that is gone forever.
