I am so completely honored and grateful with each family that chooses me to be their Tacoma newborn photographer.  This is year has been especially wonderful for my small business.  I have had the chance to photograph babies from as far north of Seattle as Kirkland, and as far south of Tacoma as Olympia, and all the places in between like Bonney Lake, Puyallup, and Gig Harbor!  I captured newborn photos for several families stationed at JBLM too.  I thought it would be fun to put together a little “baby award” post to share some of the highlights for 2017, along with this born in 2017 collage.Seattle Tacoma Newborn Photographer Butterfly Kiss Photography babies 2017

Many of these sweet faces were also featured in my artwork display at St Joseph’s Hospital in Tacoma…you can take a virtual walk through of that HERE.

This year I photographed 49 Newborn sessions, 55 babies total, with 6 sets of twins!  I have photographed babies for same sex couples, single parents, foster babies, adopted babies, and babies resulting from fertility treatments.  I have photographed African American, Asian, Native American, Hispanic, Caucasian, and mixed race babies.  It was such a joy to celebrate with each of these unique families and capture their precious new arrival.  I thought it would be fun to do something besides just share this collage and I came up with these fun “baby awards” to highlights a few newborns in particular.
