This is ONE | Celebrating Your Baby's First Birthday with a Family Portrait

Oh how time flies!  Wasn't it just yesterday that we were photographing Ciara's maternity session in anticipation of sweet Cedar's arrival?!  Now this darling boy is one year old and ready to take the world by storm. 

 Anytime we get to spend with the Paulus family is a treat!  Our camera loves them almost as much as we do!  Always looking like they stepped right out of a magazine *a million heart eyes here*

We love the way Ciara kept each of Cedar's styling bright and simple!  Everything about his wardrobe speaks to his family's love of all things nature-inspired.

Celebrating Dad this Father's Day

We know you don't need an excuse to tell the world how awesome your Dad is and how much you love him, but isn't Father's Day a perfect opportunity to brag a little!?  We believe that the bond between a dad and his kids is powerful and beautiful, and we consider it our privilege to work with families in documenting that relationship throughout many different stages of life!

Fun with Daddy - Celebrating 8 months with Cedar

Paulus_father-son-contemporary-portrait

Our favorite boys were back in the studio for Cedar's "Watch Me Grow" eight month old baby portraits, and in case we weren't sure of it yet - it's official, they've stolen our hearts (*insert a thousand heart eyes emojis here*)  We cannot get over how effortlessly this father-son duo rocked it out in front of the camera!

One of the best ways to shake up your baby's session is to let Dad jump in towards the end and share the spotlight.  Not only are you documenting this milestone in your baby's life, but you're also preserving this special time in their relationship.  It's a guaranteed way to bring out new smiles for everyone!

If Cedar and Ben have reminded us of anything, it is that there is just something special about the way dads interact with their kids - high energy and playful in a way that is unique to their relationship!

425 Magazine featuring Mom Ciara + Baby Cedar

Did you see Ciara + Cedar featured in the January issue of 425 Magazine? There is just something magical about these two humans every time they step in front of our camera.

We feel so fortunate to get to document this sweet baby boy and watch him grow during his first year of life.  The bonus? (Convincing his beautiful Mommy to be part of his photographic journey too!) 

Chic Fall Family Portraits? Yes, please!

Wow, wow, wow -- I probably sounded like I had been caught in a loop when Mom Shari and her beautiful family arrived for their Fall family session. Dressed in chic burgundy and grey, even the baby was a showstopper.

So here we are...sprinkling leaves down on Seraphina (it took like 3 seconds before she decided to put one straight into her mouth) Frankly, that was better than her eating dirt (which has happened on far too many occasions with my own kids)

The leaves are just now starting to drop and in 2-3 weeks, the entire tree line will be golden, bronze, and burnt red.

First Family Portraits for the Lung Family

Meet the Lung Family!  I adore them. Like seriously, they are so awesome and funny and wonderfully kind that I could almost forget to mention how photogenic they are... which would likely not be problematic because you can see that for yourself!  Alan and Charlene bought the babies (yes, plural... because we count fur babies as part of the family too) for their first ever family portrait and it was tutu-perfect from beginning to kissy-face end.

"Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth"

"Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth" Words of wisdom from fighter Mike Tyson. Might be one of my favorite quotes ever by the way and so very true on this shoot day! Our proverbial one-two punch was not to the face on the day of our Masud Family portrait however, but rather a Seattle right hook of massive rain! I know what you are thinking "What, rain? Seattle? - shocking" But hear me out... we do have some very pretty winter days that while cold.... are still dry and gorgeous. Today was not one of those days. Soooo... Plan B was put in motion... and by plan B, I really mean Studio B -- we simply did the entire shoot inside our Issaquah studio and it could not have been any more perfect. (aka warm, dry and wildly photogenic)

Shout out to Mom Mikaela for her A+ styling of all her fellas and one delicious little princess. The textures, the layering, the color coordination...just exceptional. (And inspiring for all of the Mom's looking for wardrobe ideas for their own family pictures!)

Baby Faces with Avery 5 months

Baby portraits of 5 month old girl in tutu_photographed by Brooke Clark at Studio BBaby Faces 5 months is SO fun and Avery is showing us why! The first year milestones for our baby girl were on full display as she smiled, rolled, and executed her perfect tummy-time moves. 

Getting Dressed Since the babes spend a great deal of time on their back and tummy. I like to recommend that we focus on skin and accessories... keeping outfits as simple as possible so that we highlight personality and expressions.  YES, there are a ton of great outfits to come, but those are best for the 8-9 month shoot where baby has mastered sitting un-assisted and pulling up to a standing position.

Favorite Photography Style Ideas for Babies (age 4-5 months)

For Girls: Tutu's, headbands, pearls

For Boys: Diaper covers, blankets, hats

One Year Baby Portraits with Unicorns + Rainbows

one year portraits with big confetti balloon and cake one year portraits with unicorn one year portraits with balloons one year portraits cake smashOne year baby portraits don't get any better than unicorns, rainbows, and balloons. So much love for this sweet baby girl's first year birthday photo shoot! But weren't we just photographing her newborn portraits yesterday?... Now she is walking, laughing and cake surfing like the big girl that she is!!!

And on a complete side note...how cute is her cake? Almost seemed like we shouldn't smash it -- it was just SO pretty and in the beginning... our birthday girl seemed to agree.  Mommy was just outside the camera's lens prompting her and sampling to get her going. (As you can see... she did come to the "cake is delicious party")
