Miss Aurora just had her very first half birthday (if you know me, you know I’m a big fan of half birthdays)! We recently got together to photograph her 6 Month Session. I did her Newborn Session when she was just 6 days old. It’s going to be so fun watching her grow in her first year!
I always love catching up with this family at our sessions. They are always lots of fun to spend time with!
This little girl has the best expressions! She is such a fun happy baby!
Thanks for another great session guys! Looking forward to seeing you for your First Birthday Session and some Cake Smash fun!! : )
I recently had the pleasure of meeting a super sweet little one-year-old guy! He came to visit me for his first birthday photos, and boy oh boy did we have a fun time! :) He has the brightest baby blues and beautiful full eyelashes!!
We started off our session exploring a little outside. He recently mastered his clapping skills and was happy to show them off to me during our session. What a happy smiley little man!
I just love that baby curiosity. It’s so fun to watch them learn about the world.
What a fine looking family!
On to the party!! What better way to celebrate your first birthday than with a special cake all to yourself?!

Sometimes you gotta get your feet into it :)
All the sweet sticky details!!
Thanks so much for sharing your first birthday with me, Mason!
Wow!! 2012 was a big year for JP Photography! I am so blessed and thankful to have such wonderful returning clients, new clients, and new friends! Thank you all for being a part of our year.
What a relief that the world didn’t end, and we can look forward to another fantastic year ahead! :) Here’s some big moments, milestones and some favorite times from 2012…
I kicked-off 2012 by celebrating this little man turning one!! It’s such a privilege following my littlest of clients through their first year, and this guy is just so adorable with his beautiful blue eyes he always makes my job easy! :)
A huge highlight for me this year was a special project for my JP Portfolio. This was a stylized session, Trash the Dress: Prom Edition! This was my baby for the summer, something I had planned and worked on for a long time before even shooting it. I am so happy that this was part of 2012 for me.
On a personal/half-business note.. my husband and I bought a house this summer!! I say it’s half business because, well… you see those big beautiful windows? That means, it’s been the PERFECT home studio setting for natural-light newborn sessions! I even created a nursery in one of the bedrooms for a private place for moms to feed and snuggle baby during breaks. Come check it out :)
I keep forgetting how exciting 2012 really was until I look back at all of these!
I had the opportunity to go down on the field at the Tacoma Rainiers Game to photograph my favorite non-profit, Peace Out, throw the first pitch!
Every year I go to the fair, and every year I am dying to do a session there! Well, 2012 was my year! I shot a very fun and colorful session at the fair during the golden hour of the setting sun. Photographer bliss!
This beautiful family was the icing on the cake! ..or should I say the jelly on the scone? lol, maybe I shouldn’t.
In September, I took a huge step with JP Photography, and a huge leap of faith. JP Photography went full-time! This opened many more doors for my business, including the opportunity to shoot weekday sessions, which can be very important in Newborn Photography.
I had the opportunity to photograph so many beautiful newborns since going full-time. For the sake of keeping my readers, here’s just one of those beautiful babes.
In 2012 I offered my first (likely annual) Holiday Mini Sessions for clients, and boy were these a hit!
I could go on and on sharing my beautiful clients of 2012 :) Thank you all for being a part of my year. Returning & new clients, and those of you who’ve referred JP, I appreciate you all so much!! Looking forward to 2013!!
