Becca's In-Home (and Fall City Maternity Session | Seattle Maternity Photographer

I have been photographing Becca since I started my company. She was a new mom and a new style blogger. I remember that she brought her husband, Jonathan, along for her session for support and help with the sweetest little red haired baby I had ever seen - Macey. The rest, as they say, was history. I photographed their family many times over the next couple of years. A family session at the site of their wedding, a studio session for photos for her blog, street and Pike Place Market Photos to show off her style. I have watched Macey grow into a hysterical toddler (go to Becca’s Insta Highlights and watch Macey talk about wine). I have watched Becca grow confident and then pregnant. Ha!

Brooke & Prim, The Story of a Toddler Just Not Having It | Seattle Family Photographer

For most of my life I have prided myself on my Mary Poppins-esque gift with children. Since I launched my business I have been quite good with children…or so I thought. It turns out that I am good with children, and I have a crazy amount of patience for kids for sure! A patience that only extends to kids, mind you. Not waiting in line, not waiting for a text response, and certainly not for my husband. Rufus, my sweet insane toddler can hit me and tell me that no one loves me on repeat while I just offer to hug him and tell him that “You don’t have to love me right now, but I love you no matter what.” So, working with children has been natural and fun for me in my photography. Something happened in the last few months- the toddlers revolted! They have staged an uprising. I have had a handful of little ones this spring that are just not having it. No cuddles, no bribes, no kisses or laughing. Every time I walk away from these sessions I am giggling and confident. Did I have to give up on my prompts and games/tricks/poses? Yes! Did that mean ruined photographs? NO! Hopefully you take family photos regularly. Children change so much, it is kind of fun to document their moods and whims. I have never walked away from a session thinking that there was nothing beautiful captured.
