Happy 1st Birthday, Aurora! | Tacoma Photographer

I cannot believe that little Miss Aurora is already a whole year old!! It’s been such an honor and so much fun to photograph her and watch her grow up in this first year of her life! Here’s one photo from each of the past year’s sessions: maternity, newborn, 6 month, and 1 first birthday! : )

How fun to look back on her first year! At Aurora’s first birthday session, her parents presented her with her birthday gift. This was her first time seeing it and her reaction was priceless!! They gave her a custom-made Patatine doll with every feature hand designed and significant to Aurora’s life. Watching how much this sweet one year old appreciated the doll was beautiful to see!

Then we got the party started with Aurora’s cake smash session!! Her mom and dad MADE THIS cake! AND this was their first time doing so! Came out pretty darn incredibly! Aurora’s nursery colors and theme are peacock and they’re her mom’s favorite so it was incorporated into her session! I love this first shot of Aurora sneaking a peek at me while her mom was getting her dressed :) JP Photography (13).jpg

Happy 1st Birthday! // Tacoma Cake Smash Session

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!

The 2012 Highlight Reel // Tacoma Photographer

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 EditionThis 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 :)

Only the best for my JP Newborn Families :)

2012 also brought a very fun Band Session for Emily Randolph & Innocent Bystander!! 

These guys were so fun to work with!

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!

This was a fun, fast-paced day with 10 back-to-back sessions!
