Lucas James ~ 7 Days Old {Lake Stevens Newborn Photographer}

We welcomed LUCAS JAMES POTTER into this world on

February 11, 2013 at 11:29 AM.

He weighed 8lbs 9oz and was 20 inches long.

We are so blessed by this little miracle.

 

 

Lucas’ Daddy is a hunter. He’s been hunting every year with his dad since he was a little guy.

Danny was thrilled when we found out we were having a boy…now he will get to carry on the tradition with his son.

So, when I came across this knit hat…I couldn’t resist it!

 

 

Baybee Toes!

A few pictures of his nursery…

WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK

Here is the handmade quilt that my Aunt Joyce made for Lucas.

She made one for Kylie too and I’m so grateful she took the time to hand stitch this one for Lucas!

Being a model is tiring work!

Smile!!

(Shh! I know it’s probably gas, but it’s still cute and I will pretend he was smiling at me!)

So in love with this shot below.

Dad and son looking at each other. The tattoo is a tribute to Kylie and all of our struggles we went through to get her.

(He’s currently designing one for Lucas, too!)

Trying to capture some sibling shots when you are dealing with a newborn and a 14 month old…

This proved to be quite difficult. so we didn’t push it too hard!

Kylie is giving her little brother a kiss!

My cup runneth over…

All my Loves.

 

Many thanks to my parents who came over and entertained Kylie while we photographed Lucas.

Also to my husband, Danny, for all of his help not only during this session.

but for all of your help during my c-section recovery…

I am so grateful for you and to see you as a father makes me love you even more!!

Do you have to go back to work next week?!? ;)

2012 – A Look Back

I cannot believe today is the last day of 2012! What a year this has been.

As we head into a new year, I’d like to take a moment to reflect back on what a great year 2012 was for me both personally and professionally.

I got to enjoy being a mom for the first time this year and cannot believe Kylie is already a year old. And, as an added blessing, we will be welcoming Baby #2 this February.

This year also marked the first full year I was working full time as a photographer and not just in addition to another job.

(Well, full-time when I wasn’t busy being a mom or being bogged down with morning sickness from pregnancy #2!)

I cannot thank my clients enough for what has been my busiest year to date!

I appreciate all the referrals, repeat clients and kind words of encouragement from everyone.

Photography is my passion and to be able to do this as my “job” is truly a blessing.

I hope that 2013 brings many new faces as well as returning clients…

because that in my mind is one of the greatest compliments!

 

I will be on maternity leave from now until probably mid-March depending on when

Baby Lucas decides to make his grand arrival.

In the meantime…

Here are some of my favorite photos from my 2012 sessions!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A very Happy New Year to you all!

Baby Pike ~ 8 Days Old {Woodinville Newborn Photographer}

Baby Pike has arrived and we all couldn’t be more excited!!

I had the extreme honor of photographing his adorable newness when he was just 8 days old!

His parents, Zach and Katie, just happen to be some of our best friends…

So, we are thrilled that Pike is finally here and we can start creating new memories with their little man!

Future CEO??

Or maybe a star baseball player?

Baseball is his Daddy’s favorite sport!

 

Santa Baby!

Pike’s Daddy plays the drums, so it’s only fitting that we got some shots of him on Zach’s drum!

Grandpa and Grandma Walker got to visit for a few weeks from Florida.

This was the same rocking chair they used to rock Katie and her siblings in!

Grandpa and Grandma Fogle getting their snuggles in too!

Pike’s nursery is absolutely adorable.

Complete with striped ceilings, a wall of books and plenty of touches from when Zach and Katie were kids -

Pike is sure going to feel warm and cozy in this inviting space!

 

 

Congratulations my dear friends on your biggest accomplishment yet!

Pike is just precious and I can’t wait to be there along the journey to witness him grow up.

He is blessed to have you both as his parents!

 

Adrienne – 9 Days Old! {Edmonds Newborn Photographer}

These mommas sure do have their work cut out for them. With 3 adorable babes under the age of three -

Many would assume their house may be chaos…But that is not the case!

I arrived and while setting up all my stuff  Adrienne’s older brother and sister were quite curious as to what was going on in their living room but they were so good while I was taking photos.

Sweet Adrienne was just 9 days old when I got the pleasure of doing her newborn session.

She was a total champ for the whole time!

Mom Kitzen hand crocheted this adorable outfit and all three kiddos have worn it!

Getting sleepy….this model stuff is hard work!

Lil’ wave for the camera.

Pretty sure there is nothing cuter than baby feet!

 

Older brother Pel’el  (2.5 years) posing!  Love those eyes!

Atlua (11 months) and her gorgeous red locks!

They weren’t exactly thrilled with the idea of a sibling photo! LOL!

Kitzen and Jennifer –  Thank you so much for letting me come into your home and photograph your precious family.

I wish you ladies all the best!

Chloe is 3 months old! {Everett Baby Photographer}

It’s hard to believe that Chloe is already 3 months old!

The last time I photographed her she was only 11 days old! It’s amazing how fast time flies and how quickly our precious babes grow up!

I am looking forward to being able to watch Chloe grow and change during her first year.

 

Look at those cheeks!

Giggles for her Momma!

Wut?

Ah, the infamous crying Christmas photo!

I think every baby has one. At least she didn’t do that when her parents took her to meet Santa Claus!

Much better! Cozy on Dad’s chest.

 

Clearly, we were keeping her awake with all the photo taking! :)

She showed us and just went to sleep!

So precious.

“Sleep in heavenly peace” Little one!

All tuckered out! This being cute for photos is hard work!

I hope you guys enjoy your first holiday season as a family!

Looking forward to seeing how much she has changed for our 6 month session.

 

Baby Caleb ~ 10 Days Old {Bothell Newborn Photographer}

This is Caleb and I had the pleasure of photographing his adorableness when he was 10 days old!

Snuggles with Momma!

Happy Family!

Baby Toes!

Got the smile! ;)

Trick ~ or ~ Treat!

Thank you Dawn and Mike for allowing me to capture this moment in your lives for you.

Caleb is just precious and I wish you guys all the best!

Chloe Noelle ~ 11 Days Old {Everett Newborn Photographer}

Say Hello to CHLOE NOELLE!

This little precious bundle of joy entered our world on 8/22/12.

She weighed 8lbs 2 oz and was 20.5 inches long!

I had the honor of photographing her when she was 11 days old!

She was a champ the entire session…my best sleeping newborn yet!

OMG…Newborn Tutu = Adorable!

 

Seriously, those lips! So sweet!

Chloe’s proud parents, Erik & Heather

Nothing beats a Mama’s lovin’!


 

Thanks you guys for letting me capture this moment in your lives!

Chloe is just precious and I can’t wait to see what her future brings!

Madeline Mae ~ 11 Days Old {Seattle Newborn Photographer}

Meet Madeline Mae

I had the extreme pleasure of getting to snuggle and photograph this little lady when she was a wee 11 days old!

She was a champ throughout our session and oh, that hair, what can I say about that full head of hair!

Adorbs!!

Button Nose. Baby Lips. Nothing better!!

Here’s the whole family…..

(Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this family?

Well, I do…they are awesome and I am so grateful to be able to call them my dear friends! )

Anyone who knows me knows that I am sucker for baby toes!

This is Miss Olivia Lee. I have had the pleasure of taking her newborn photos and another session a few years later.

She is a little over 3 years old now and is loving being a big sister!

How fun to each have a book after their own name and matching stuffed animals to go with their books!

Madeline doesn’t know it yet…but she was created out of some seriously smart genes.

With a teacher for a mom and a lawyer for a dad…we had to get a shot of her looking studious from the start!!

Sleeping like the little angel that she is!

Thanks for letting me capture this fleeting time in Madeline’s life.

Seriously, getting to snuggle with newborns is pretty much the best part of this job!

 

Kylie is 6 months! {Seattle Baby Photographer}


I can’t even believe that my little monkey turned 6 months old on June 9!

It’s crazy to think it’s been half a year already since we welcomed her into our lives

(considering neither one of us can remember what life was like without her.)

 

I had to hold off on posting these photos since we worked on a little surprise for Daddy for Father’s Day!

 

 

Everything in her mouth and nonstop drool = My little teether

She actually just had her 2 bottom teeth pop through.

Squishy Baby Cheeks!!

She’s becoming a bit more curious in her old age!

 

 

OMG…We are smitten with her.

‘Nuff said!

Baby Leanna {Arlington Newborn Photographer}

 

I was sooo excited to be able to photograph this lil beauty when she was only 6 days old!

She is the teeniest little peanut!

She weighed in at 6lbs 3oz and was 18.5 inches when she was born!!

She  was awake for quite a bit of the shoot which can make these sessions a bit more difficult…But, we managed to make it work!

The longest fingers I’ve ever seen on a wee lil baby!!

Mama’s soothing touch!

And back to sleep she goes!!!

Love that nose and those lips!!!

A mama and her daughter…

Welcome to the World Leanna!!

Katie and Halden – thank you for entrusting me with your precious babykins to capture this moment in your lives for you!
