Happy Baby Smiles! Federal Way Baby Photographer

Little Miss J is ready for spring in her flowery outfits. Isn't she pretty? She gave me lots of smiles during her 9 month portrait session, showing off her budding new teeth, as well as ability to stand and crawl. Those are the key developmental aspects I like to capture at this stage. Which is your favorite portrait?

Cherry Blossom's and Images Within | Federal Way Photographer

The first cherry blossom's are appearing, heralding spring's arrival. I like the contrast of the lively pink blossoms against the somber background, as in life renewed after a sleepy dormant winter. Photographed from my within my warm, dry kitchen on a cool, windy, rainy day.

What to Wear | Federal Way Photographer

Having been duly chastised for my lack of blog posts, I'm recommitted to posting here on a more regular basis, rather than just the Facebook posts I've been doing. So to start things up again, thought I'd post a helpful clothing guide for your next portrait session. Choosing the right clothing is an important factor in creating a successful portrait, and one that can be stressful for the person (usually mom) putting it all together. I have some general tips on my website, and, upon booking your portrait session, I always email a list of session specific tips, do's and dont's. A visual example really helps one to imagine the possibilities though, so look for more of these in the future.
