Tacoma Newborn Photographer

I’m thinking I need to start naming my blogs something more search engine friendly, like “Seattle Maternity Photographer” or “Tacoma Newborn Photographer“… Boring, yet effective. If anyone wants to school me in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), I’d love to learn!

With that said, here are some pics from a newborn session I did on Sunday.

I feel so lucky that I am allowed to take photos of peoples newborn babies. He was my 9th newborn! I feel like I’m starting to get a hang of it. I’m ready to take on lots more newborns!! 🙂

I really wanted to use this prop. He was a little big for it, but I still like this shot.

Remember the umbrella maternity pics? That is this babies mama! She ended up delivery at almost 42 weeks, 7 weeks after these photos were taken.

I don’t think I ever shared more of those photos, so here are some of them…

Can you believe that little guy was in her belly!? Such a miracle 🙂

    Boy do I love the talent you have! These pictures are fabulous. I’ve recommended you to my pregnant bestie for her photos. She lives in Bellingham, but I know her and the hubs would have no problem driving to Tacoma either 🙂

    I’ll totally make you smoked salmon chowder. We really should make a date to become weird internet friends in real life.

    I love the pictures! You really do have a gift! If only you lived in the midwest! I swear I would hire you to capture pics of my monkey.

    I wish you lived closer so you could be my own personal photog; could you be further away from Boston???

  6. Kate says:

  8. Kimberly says:

  9. Marissa says:

    What great shots! I love the one with the little guy in the basket and his mouth is in the ‘o’ position, its adorable. I’ve been wondering, when shooting newborns do you use natural light or do you bring in extra lights? I always question which way its done but I never ask! The pictures always seem to have great exposure.

  10. Care – these are beautiful! i’m having a hard time picking a fav… i think it would be the basket shot…love love the belly shot with the carter blocks.

    fantastic job on these!!

  11. beautiful! I love the bump picture! Really cute idea 🙂
    Also my fav of the newborn(although they are all wonderful) is the very last one. What a cute little bundle!!

    Love the pictures, simply beautiful!! You have a great talent!! Let me know if you are coming to Houston to visit anytime soon and bring your camera, I’d love to hire you to get some family shots! lemon.miles@gmail.com

  15. GORGEOUS!! Would Minnesota be too far to travel when I have another baby?

    Had to ask.

  16. Sandy says:

    GORGEOUS photos! I will totally hire you to do newborn photos when I have kids (hopefully next year!). I LOVE the last five photos of the baby…especially that last one where he is swaddled…you will have to recreate that shot for me!

  17. Nicole says:

    WOW!!! Gorgeous pics!!! The basket shot is perfect! You need to move closer to Philly :), I would totally hire you to photograph my daughter.

  18. Keli says:

    Love all of them! What a sweet baby!

  19. Dani says:

    LOVE the newborn shots:) I have been attempting to prop newborns up with their arms and I have yet to figure out how to do it! I would love some advice. I love the simplicity of your photography. Simple but meaningful and beautiful!

    You had asked me for my website and blog and here it is:)

    and you can link to the blog from there.

  20. Care says:

    wow, thanks everyone!! What a great way to start my morning. 🙂

    Dani – thanks for the link, I love meeting other photographers. You do beautiful work!

    Katie – I’m actually going to Houston in late Jan/early Feb to photograph one of my best friends newborns. Maybe we could schedule a family session!? I will probably be there for a week!

    Cassie – Thanks for telling your friends about me. Bellingham is totally driveable… I’ve always wanted to go up there! I agree we should meet sometime. Not sure when/where/how, but it would be fun!

  21. So I semi hate when you post these gorgeous pictures because I get so jealous 🙁 I want photos just like yours of my Kaia! Are you ever going to be in the VA area so I could hire you? Or maybe I’ll have to come to you if we can ever make it out to see my best friend in WA.

  22. Desi says:

    Beautiful! I love love love these. What a gorgeous newborn you had to work with too :).

  23. You are very talented, Care. I am glad you are realizing your worth as a professional photographer!

  24. Mrs.F says:

    I could seriously stare at your photography ALL DAY LONG. If only you could be my photography tutor!

  25. Amber Ellen says:

    Gorgeous! I loved seeing the bump photos again. You did such an awesome job on those! 🙂

  26. lynn.marie says:

    Those newborn pictures are just wonderful! I think you definitely have the hang of it 😉

  27. Kristina says:

    Perfect Exposure! If you dont mind me asking…I was wondering what kind of lighting setup you used for these? I love them!

  28. Leah says:

    care — these are gorgeous!!! you did an amazing job! 😉

  29. kristin says:

    I just realized I never commented on this post- probably b/c I had 10.5 seconds online and that only allowed me enough time to simply VIEW your beautiful work! 😉 I love that second pose where the baby’s chin is resting on his hands- ahhh! How DO you do it, Care, haha! Will baby girl Stevenson be too young to mold into a cute picture like that? Haha, after you get a pic of her coming out, go ahead and pose her in the little hospital bassinet, will ya?

  30. Terell says:

    this article and also the rest of the website is really good.

  31. Your article helped me a lot, is there any more related content? Thanks!
