Old Mill Park Family Session | Silverdale Family Photographer

It was so cold and windy during this session, but you'd never know based on how happy this little girl was. She literally smiled non-stop the entire time we were walking around Old Mill Park.

The cold weather gave us the excuse to take a lot of snuggly pictures and pull out the mouse hat... which is the cutest thing you've ever seen.

First Look | Downtown Bremerton Family Session

It was a rainy afternoon in Downtown Bremerton, but it's always a blast with this crew.

First Look | Port Orchard Family Session

When shooting in new locations, I always get there early to scout out spots. I really wanted these two pictures, but was worried asking a new family to climb up in a window would send them running for the hills. They were game for anything and I am obsessed with the resulting pictures! 

Happy Birthday, H! | Silverdale Cake Smash Photographer

Y'all, my last cake smash in Washington couldn't have been more perfect. When I took my first test shot with the background, I knew this was going to be one of my favorite smashes. The pinwheels, her birthday hat and bubble bath at the end... I don't know if it gets cuter than this. 

If you saw the sneak peek, then you already know how her smash went. She loved her cake for about 5 minutes. Then she pulled off her necklace and tutu... and then she was done! Like, basically feel asleep on the floor done. 

First Look: Milestone Session | Bremerton Child Photographer

She is sweet as can be and an excellent backward scooter. She was mostly quiet except when her big brother would crack her up. I've photographed this sweet girl from her first few moments on earth to now, 6 months. Oh, how I'll miss this family.

Rewind a few months. She was so sleepy for her newborn session. We did so many setups! 

Rewind a few more days. She had daddy wrapped around her finger before she even opened her eyes.

I did their little brother's newborn session in January. A few weeks later, everyone came back to do a sibling session. Three kids under 3 made things a little crazy, but nothing some fruit snacks and cuddles couldn't fix.

Simplicity | Bremerton Newborn Photographer

During the Newborn Retreat, a guest photographer spoke on natural newborn photography. I gasped and ran to show my husband. It was so simple yet took my breath away. 

While I had already started taking steps to strip down my newborn sessions, I am so excited to embrace this mindset and simply my work! 

Oh, and can we talk about this boy's hair?
