Welcome Baby Zachariah | Seattle Family Photographer
Whenever I pause to reflect back on past events, I'm always in awe of God's perfect timing. I booked tickets to Seattle (my hometown) months earlier, and I later learned that my dear friends, Alison and Mark, were going to have a baby around the same time I'd be in Seattle! Who knew that baby Zachariah was going to make his debut on July 6th (a day after his expected due date) AND while I'd be in town?
We started out by photographing some beautiful portraits of Alison holding baby Zachariah. I had Alison stand next to the window (I'm a huge fan of natural, window light!) because I wanted to use the soft light that was organically coming from the window. I thought it would be meaningful to capture the tenderness and intimate connection between mother and child during the first few weeks of a baby's life. We captured a few portraits of Mark and Zachariah later in the shoot, too, to also illustrate the connection between father and son. I want parents to be able to remember the joy of holding their babies because they're only little for so long!
We also captured candids of the two older brothers and the interaction they were having with Mark, their dad. They were eating popcorn, and Mark was balancing Ty beanie babies on their heads! It was so funny, and their giggles and smiles were priceless. We captured additional portraits of the whole family inside and outside their home, and it was perfect in every way! Baby Zachariah, you are so loved by your mommy, daddy, and older brothers :)
To capture the wonderful gift of family is one of the greatest honors and joys I have, and I'm truly blessed to do what I love to do! Enjoy the photos.
