[ teske ] – Walla Walla Newborn Photographer

This little guy is my DARLING nephew. I’m a terrible blogger…He was born in March!

I love that I have the opportunity to capture so many of our families important milestones. Baptisms, weddings, births, senior portraits. I’ve done them all. But some of my favorite family photos are ones that show the joy two cousins share together. Or the closeness of an Aunt and niece. Good stuff.

I often struggle with newborns. They never seem to sleep the way I want them to. Aiden was no exception. It took about 3 hours for him to finally give in. I have decided to quit fighting it and take more of a lifestyle approach to newborn photography. In the home. With both parents. Awake or asleep. I feel like my calling was not to capture babies balancing on their chins in cute hats. But I’m not getting rid of the hats. I love to knit the hats.

Enjoy these darling pics!

[ Photos by Sophia ] – The Making of Photographer

My daughter, Sophia, is 12. She has been coming on shoots with me for years. I think weddings are her favorite. She asked me if she could shoot some pictures while she helped me at this wedding since I now have 2 cameras. She used my Nikon D3s and a variety of lenses. The direction I gave her was this. Make sure you meter and focus on the face; and don’t always put your subject in the dead center of every picture. This is what she came up with. Proud of my sweet girl. The editing was done by me.

I think I have a second shooter in the making. I am a firm believer that you can learn all the fundamentals of photography, but you must have passion and an eye to make art. However, Sophia has already told me that she does not want to be a photographer. Baker, Fashion Designer and Model have all been said over the years. I’m putting my money on something creative. It will be fun to see who she will be.
