Dita’s Birth

posted in: Birth | 1

Pamela’s labor started two weeks before her due date. In fact, I went to bed that night thinking the first thing I needed to do in the morning was send her an email reminding her when and how to get ahold of me, to keep me updated, etc. Instead, I was awakened in the night with the news that Pamela was already in labor!

I packed my bag and headed out in the early hours to the Mt. Vernon Birth Center. I was excited because this was my very first birth at this particular birth center. Pamela’s labor was moving at a steady pace and we all thought it would be a quick labor.

Pamela was amazingly strong! She pushed (by my calculations) for over 5 hours! I could not believe the strength and determination this woman has.

Introducing: Birth Day Sessions! {Bellingham Newborn Photographer}

posted in: Newborns | 0

Not every one wants birth photos, but every baby deserves his or her first days captured.

Birth Day sessions meet families where they are: hospital, birth center, or home. I come and capture your baby within in the first 48 hours of life. These sessions can include family meeting the baby for the first time, just mom dad and the baby, or just the baby himself. These photos are much more “lifestyle” images and very little posing is done.

{I took a very limited number of clients in 2012, so that I could focus on my toddler son’s health issues (he had two heart surgeries last year). During a lull in that time, I moved my blog, but many of my sessions never got moved over. I will now work on catching up on those sessions. My son is now doing very well and I am once again in full swing with my photography!}

Ezrah’s Birth: May 2011

Some labors are so fast, they don’t leave much time for photographing the “labor” part. Ezrah’s labor was one of those! He made his appearance faster than anyone imagined!

Sometimes I think the Pacific Northwest is most beautiful in the winter.

Soft fog that lends a magical quality to the air. That brings out the rainbow of nature’s palette.
