I often get asked why I photograph babies. Well, when it is a job that is 90% snuggles, 5% creating beautiful lasting art, 3% pee and 2% poop, I often respond with why wouldn’t I photograph babies? (Not to mention I get my baby fix, which to be honest, is a huge relief to my husband…)
When you hire me to photograph your newborn, you aren’t just hiring me to photograph your sweet little one. You are enlisting me to help you remember a fleeting moment of feelings that you just can’t put into words. That feeling that you experienced looking at this fresh new face and you were sure your heart would just burst. That moment when you first locked eyes, and the Earth’s gravitational pull made sense. That moment that “unconditional love” took on a real, tangible meaning. It’s the moment you fully transition from being in love to being a family. The moment you see your piece of forever. And that, my friend, is really why I photograph babies.
If you are in the greater Seattle Tacoma area, I would love to chat with you about being your Seattle newborn photographer.
