This beautiful family came to my studio from Vader, Washington. It’s just a few miles up the freeway from my new studio in Kelso. I’m not quite moved in to the new space yet. After I finish some final touches, I will post some photos of it. I’m hoping to be done within a week or so, but with all the details, I’m not promising anything!

For this session we met at the local park near my studio and started with some fun outdoor shots. If I haven’t mentioned a million times already, I LOVE newborn sessions. They are among my absolute favorite to photograph. Little man “R” was an absolute perfect baby for me and we got a lot of great photos. I couldn’t resist sharing more than my usual.

After our outdoor session we headed back to the studio for some more photos. Since the weather is turning a bit cooler, we didn’t want to do the entire session outdoors. Don’t worry, we kept him nice and warm outside!!

I hope you enjoy the preview!


The new family.

    How fun. I love newborns–especially newborns as cute as that. Look at all that red hair! I am so jealous of the colors you are getting over there outdoors right now. Beautiful. They’ll love these.

  • Oh, so tiny and so cute… and I think I am seeing a bit of a pretty yellow wall…
