Seattle Newborn Photographer | Newborn Baby Girl H

As a Seattle newborn photographer, I just love getting to capture growing families. This new addition was no exception! It is always so exciting to get to see siblings and how they interact with their new sibling.

I styled this newborn session with warm neutral simple tones and props. Cream is a big favorite of mine and a stable in every session. It just completed this sweet girl perfectly. I added a few digital fine art composites to the gallery that complimented the set ups and color tones used.

Check out this beautiful family and their new addition baby H at her newborn session which took place at the Dawn Rocks Photography studio in Lakewood, WA.

Seattle Baby Milestone Photographer | Tuckers Sitter Session

As a Seattle Baby Photographer, I love to capture babies not just as a newborn, but to watch them grow and get to document their milestones too. This little guy came in for his sitter session and it turned out so great!

I enjoy getting to see how they have grown and look back at their newborn session to compare to the now. I also love to incorporate some of the props and colors from my clients newborn sessions into their milestone sessions so I brought out the cream flokati we used for his newborn session and brought in some of the same color tones. 

He has the sweetest smile and eyes and I am just obsessed with how his session turned out!

Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia Newborn Photographer | New Product! Heirloom Wall Art

As a Newborn Photographer, I love not only capturing these sweet babies and documenting growing families but also putting it into photographic art that will not only be cherished by my clients but to pass down for generations to come. The newest product to be added for my clients marries these beautiful prints with a wood product that really fits my neutral and organic style. I love the hand crafted look of the finished product.

The heirloom wood prints can be printed in square, rectangle or circle shapes in a variety of sizes. Clients can choose individually or pre-designed wall sets that can be designed before sending it off for production to see how the images will flow together. I have included images of the studio sample below as well a sample proof for a wall set.

Seattle, Tacoma & Olympia Newborn Photographer | Digital Backdrops Before & After

If you follow the Dawn Rocks Photography, Seattle newborn photographer, on social media, you may have noticed the last few months the addition of some gorgeous really detailed set ups on some of my posts. I recently began incorporating digital backdrops as an efficient way to add something extra special for a set up or two into my clients newborn session galleries. Normally these set ups would take quite some time to set up and perfect and a newborn session already takes quite some time to get through all the set ups and poses as it is. I wanted to share a before and after of how I shoot in studio for the backdrops and how it comes to life.

I pose baby on a prop designed by the artist that created the digital backdrops. I use a variety of colors over the prop based on the digital backdrop to achieve a seamless and natural look for editing.

These beautiful backdrops are designed and sold by the talented Luisa Dunn Photography shop out of Australia.

Tacoma 6 month milestone session from this summer that is just too sweet I have to share! I am catching up on blogging and starting with this doll.

Tacoma Newborn Photographer Dawn Rocks Photography's 1st Anniversary Giveaway

I am so over the moon every day that I get to call myself a newborn and maternity photographer. What an incredible year it has been! I officially launched Dawn Rocks Photography as a business last August shortly after graduating with my BS in Computer Science and Systems from the University of Washington. I spent the next few months preparing for my husbands homecoming from a deployment, the holidays and gearing up for some really exciting things for 2015. In January, I made the decision to specialize in newborn and maternity portraiture and I have never looked back. Parenthood is such a beautiful time and being able to capture a memory - of how they were when they were that small and the journey of making their grand entrance into this world is amazing. Creating something to cherish that memory, not only for the parents, but for the children and the generations to follow. 

In February I had the opportunity to spend a week with a newborn photographer that I admire and follow Kelly Brown from Little Pieces Photography . Not only did I learn so much about my business and the art of photography, but it was life changing for me personally. I set some goals and my biggest one has already been accomplished. I opened my own commercial studio and this summer that is exactly what I did! It has been quite a task but I would not change a thing! 

So to everyone who has been here to support me and my business along the way, thank you. Your support and love means the world. I adore my clients, watching their families grow and being apart of that journey.  The fellow photographers who lift one another up and help each other grow in this community(Special shout out to Laura Ryan Photography for her friendship and being such a joy in the photographer community to share with and support one another). To my husband and kids who has been so supportive of my love for the art, becoming a business owner and pushing myself to set and work towards these goals.

Tacoma Newborn Photography | Adorable Baby Girl Wilhelmina Newborn Session

This sweet baby girl Wilhelmina came to visit my new photography studio in Lakewood, WA located just south of Tacoma and north of JBLM for her newborn session.

Her mom is a dear friend of mine and I was so excited to get to finally get to meet her! I love her hair! So much of it and it's got a little mind of its own. I saw something from each of her older siblings in her face and expressions - she is just so sweet and adorable. 

Check out the peek into her session below and see what I am talking about!
