Jeremiah William-One Week Old *Bellingham Newborn Photographer*

I've been doing a lot more newborn sessions lately, and I have to say I love it. I've always thought of my photography geared more towards families and weddings, but I am enjoying this shift towards newborns and maternity. There is something so special about a fresh newborn baby that lifts the soul. Seriously! I held little Jeremiah, and I thought my heart would just jump out of my chest! I don't know if all photographers feel this way when they shoot little new babes, but I can't get enough of them! Just take a look at this little guy!! (His big brother is pretty cute stuff too!)

Cooper turns 1 *Bonney Lake Child Photographer*

Cooper just turned one, and poor guy had to have his first birthday party cancelled because he was sick! :( How sad is that?! Anyways, he and my daughter Clara have a very special friendship. Cooper gave her a bracelet after she was born (even though I think he was still in the womb when he got it). When that bracelet broke, he decided to get her another one for her 1st birthday. He is a month younger than Clara, and of course I have enjoyed photographing these two babies together over the past year. He is a happy-go-lucky kinda boy, and so easy to photograph. Our vision with this shoot was to have this HUGE blue balloon as a thematic element. But after I snapped my first test shot, the balloon quickly became untied and floated upward. It was sad watching it slowly disappear into the grey of our Washington springtime sky, but Cooper was so charming, I soon forgot about that balloon.

Well Almost....

Fun Visits and Pretty Tulips

Chris' mom, Jennie, flew out to visit last week. His parents moved from Bellingham to Orlando two years ago, and we miss having them around sooooo much! Chris, Madeline and I constantly scheme on how to get them to move back here, but once you leave the damp and cold winters of Western Washington for golfing everyday on the best greens in Florida, I guess we have our work cut out for us! Here are some photos from our jaunt to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. I can't say my dear husband was as thrilled as we were to visit, but it sure was beautiful. And take note... if you've never been before, wear boots. The fields can be really muddy!

Cheers,
