As a Redmond WA maternity photographer, I want to make sure that each woman who comes to me feels beautiful when looking at her photographs. You may not be too happy with your body while it’s changing so drastically, but my job is to show the beauty that is evident to everyone around you.
It’s true–you really do glow when you’re pregnant. There’s a luminescence to your skin, and you often walk around with a tiny hint of a secret smile on your lips, long before you start to show your secret to the world.
For Erin, it really shows through the photos from her Snoqualmie maternity session. We waded in a creek near Fall City, WA and got a bit wet, and then ended the evening in Snoqualmie while watching a herd of elk march across an open field. It was the perfect summer maternity session, and it was a magical ending to a beautiful season.
Being a Redmond WA birth photographer is also a true blessing, and I never get tired (well, actually I get exhausted) of the stories I get to watch unfold, knowing that I am one of the very first to meet a brand new person. In just a few short weeks, I’ll have the honor to be present during the birth of Erin’s first child.

As a Seattle maternity photographer, it’s wonderful when your best friend asks you to capture her own maternity photos! We connected over our boys and their love for Transformers toys, our mutual love for photography, and our puny statures. She was already super pregnant and soon to give birth with her 3rd–Alice, whose grand entrance I was blessed to be able to capture as my very first attempt at being a birth photographer.
When my friend told me she was pregnant again this past winter, I admit, I was shocked. A NEW BABY IS COMING! Commence the impatience and excitement.
Fast forward to TODAY. Little Clara is soon to be born. Probably today, maybe tomorrow (though for my dear friend’s sake, I hope it’s today.)
I’ll be waiting in that room, right alongside her, and I couldn’t be more happy. Being there for my sweet friend, to cheer her on, and to capture all those first moments of Clara’s life–is my idea of a perfect day. Seattle Birth Photographer + Most Awesome Friend + New Baby = Pure Bliss.
Clara, we are all ready for you to arrive.
