The Sweetest Mother and Daughter | Seattle Family Photography

Spending time with Jessica and Penelope allowed me some peace of mind. They were just this perfect little duo. In these photos when it looks like it is the two of them in their own world, it absolutely was. I felt in that moment that if I only ever had Rufus, it would be so special in its own way. On the other hand, I immediately wanted a sassy, snuggly, precocious little girl of my own. Jessica was a winner of my motherhood session giveaway and I could not have been happier. I love what Jessica says in her interview about how hard it is! Haha. It just is so much MORE than I could have imagined. When you are so invested on being the best mother you can be, it takes every ounce of energy and love, not to mention time, that you have. Here is Jessica and Nellie’s Seattle studio mother-daughter photo session and Jessica’s thoughts on motherhood:

What is a "Fresh 48" Photography Session and Why You Should Do It!

When I was pregnant with Rufus, I sort of knew what a fresh 48 was. I got that the gist was a photography session in the hospital right after your baby is born. The only photos I had seen from fresh 48 sessions though, were of bloggers and influencers with their hair and makeup done (usually professionally) looking fresh and perfect and frankly, unattainable. At the time those images and the idea that Rufus would just be a little squishy maybe not cute newborn was enough to turn me off of the idea.

An Energetic and Joyful Motherhood Photography Session in a Seattle Studio | Seattle Family Photographer

I am bringing you another mother interview! Jessie won a session around Christmastime, and I photographed her family early in the new year. I now follow her on Instagram and ask for parenting tips constantly (actually, now that I am really thinking about it, I might be obnoxious.

Not all parents are into baby wearing. David wasn’t interested. I was a diehard. I loved wearing Rufus. I had a sling, a wrap, an Ergo…you name it. The first year of his life babywearing happened every day, and I continue to wear Rufus in the ring sling even now!
