I have been watching these sweet little girls grow up over the last year and it has been so much fun! This is one of the things I really like about our baby photography plans. I get to see the little ones three times during their first year and then we get to do a cake smash for the first birthday party! I have a few more cake smashes coming up this month! I can’t wait! It is just too much fun. If you have a little one with a birthday coming up — give me a call. A Cake Smash session is such a great time to capture those special moments.

Homemade tutus and smashing cakes are moments too cute to pass up.

I was just going through some of the photos I have been working on over the last month or so and I just had to share these images of this adorable newborn. I just loved this sweet little girl. Such a little cutie!

It was a wet wedding day last weekend for Jody and Jordan, but a few drops didn’t get in the way of a beautiful day. It started out with the girls getting ready at the Hampton Inn, followed by a sweet and sexy first look by the ferry. The two met on the ferry so it was fitting to have the ferry in the background. Then it was off to the church to  tie the knot, followed by a high energy reception at the Kitsap Golf and Country Club. The rain never did let up, and neither did the love and happiness of the day. Enjoy out the slide show from their day.

It was so much fun to meet young Peyton today. I have known his mom since she was in grade school, so it is fun to see her grow into a mom herself. I photographed this couple’s wedding just a year ago and now they have started a wonderful little family. Here is just a sneak peak from today’s session.

This little miss dropped by for her 3 month session as part of our new Baby Portrait Plan. I saw this little tyke as a newborn, and I’ll see her for a 6 month session, a nine month session and her 1st year cake smash! What a cheerful little girl she has become. We are looking forward to watching her grow through the next year. So sweet! Have a look at a quick sneak peak. More to come later!



Meeting baby C was such a delight after working with her parents Christine and Eric on their maternity session. She was definitely a challenge as she was not in the least bit tired or sleepy, but it was worth the effort. Eric’s dog was so sweet. I can not believe how patient she was with the baby and the long wait she had to endure. She was just wonderful with the baby and so funny! Such a good pup! Congrats on your sweet little girl, Christine and Eric!

This sweet little thing was only three weeks old but already clearly a live wire! She had no interest in sleeping through her first photo session. She wanted to make sure she was part of the party! You’ll be seeing more of her as she grows over her first year as she is now officially a member of our baby plan “The Bebe Collection”. I’ll be photographing her at important stages all during that important first year. If you want to know more about our baby plan, just drop me a e-mail.

I love the Manette neighborhood, so when Lacee suggested we use the waterfront for her maternity session, I was all over the idea. They live in the area and walk around the neighborhood daily, so it made perfect sense for them. Lacee and Chris are such a great couple. I can’t wait to meet their little girl. She will be here so soon!

We had a smashing good time celebrating Sophia’s first birthday in our studio. She is such a little sweetheart – with a great mischievous streak! I have had so much fun watching her and her big sister grow this year. It has been an honor to document this special year for this great family!
