PBSF Labor & Delivery Photographer | A Baby Story | Lifestyle Photography

"For the rest of my life I will search for moments full of you" - Anonymous

It's amazing how such a little person can turn the whole world around
and how watching your family grow can change how you value everything.
The world just doesn't look the same.
These people, these babies, these moments,  they're all that really matter.
I'm blessed to be a Nana, again, to this new little person.

Welcome to the world Everly Rogue. 
This is where your story begins.

 This sweet baby was in no hurry to evacuate her cozy place. 
For two days this mommy labored at home like a champ 
and once again, she and her husband amazed me. 
The two of them make such a great team.
 Checking in to L&D during your toddlers bedtime requires some creativity,
especially when Nana is the toddler sitter and the l&d photographer
Thank goodness my rocking skills are up to date 
and the doula was sweet enough to swap places a few times so I could capture these.

 Her labor was quiet and peaceful. 
She was focused in mediation throughout the process. 
It was just as she had hoped it would be. 
She worked hard for this. Together, they worked hard for this.
 And then, just like that, literally, just like that...
a new little person comes into the world. And it's a girl.

And absolutely perfect.

And so it begins again. My children continue blessing me.

A special thank you to Andrea Zajonc for second shooting this with me and holding my hand through a few times. 
It was a pleasure...many blessings to you! 

A Tribute to Buddy - 14 years loved.

I'm honored that the Holbrook's let me share a bit of this day with them. 
My heart broke for all of them as they experienced this incredibly difficult decision.
I remember this sweet old boy as a rambunctious puppy, 
with his intense love for rocks and all things fetch-able!
He lived a life well loved.

My dear friends, 
I wish for you healed hearts 
and the memories of this beautiful boy 
to continue to warm your soul.

Diamond Hill Australian Shepherds | Puppy Session | La Center, Washington Pet Photographer

When Donna & Jamie of Diamond Hill Australian Shepherds asked me to photograph their puppies 
I was up for the challenge. I mean how hard could 16 eight week old puppies be?

I really thought, with four, capable adults we could rally them all together in a single frame.
Not so much. But it sure was fun trying.
They're such good babies!

Looks like I'll be adding that to my bucket list!

Keep watching the blog for these adorable little pups individual portraits - All 16 of them!

Love you both, more than you know!
