Four {Bellingham Children’s Photographer}

Bellingham Children's Photographer

My sweet boy, my Apollo turned four last month. You might look at this photo and see a thin, curly-haired boy.

I see so much more. A heart warrior, heart surgery survivor a fighter.

A boy who has suffered too many medical procedures in four years, but come through with his spirit intact.

A little guy who has learned to eat a variety of food, but still depends on his g-tube to grow. A little boy who is loved and adored by 13 older siblings and two parents.

Happy birthday, Apollo XIV!

Despite a few worries about the weather interfering with this maternity shoot, the day turned out perfectly. Erica was stunning and little Millie may have tried to steal the show a few times. With that adorable face and big eyes, who wouldn’t be charmed? I can’t wait to photograph the arrival of this new little one in July!

 

Eliana {Bellingham Birth Photographer}

I have had the honor of being a Bellingham birth photographer for almost four years now. Each birth is so unique, so beautiful. I have especially enjoyed watching mamas who use hypnobirthing. Whether in the hospital or at home, these mamas have amazed me. Eliana’s labor looked like it was going to be long and slow, but at is turns out, her mama was just extremely relaxed and focused on her birth. In the end, she was born more quickly than anyone expected.

His big sisters were supposed to be out of the house, safe with their grandma and grandpa, but instead got to witness the birth of their little brother while daddy tried to distract them with an ipad.

Cody {The Superhero Project}

Three year old Cody (or Cody Bear, as his mom likes to call him) totally stole my heart. I seriously fell in love with the little guy in the short hour that I had the honor of photographing him.

His mom, Shawna, says: Cody was born with Trisomy 21 or Down syndrome. He’s been blessed with good health, but struggles with his extremely low muscle tone, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Speech Apraxia. Despite those obstacles, he is a playful little boy who loves to tease and give hugs and kisses. He loves music, Sesame Street, Baby Signing Time, and farm animals.

 

 

 

Mordecai {The Superhero Project}

{The Superhero Project is a personal project I’ve been working on to highlight children with special needs. My goal is to have these children view themselves as the strong, capable individuals that they are, not to focus on their struggles. You can also view photos of superheros: Avery, Victoria, Apollo and Avi.}
