Good Samaritan Hospital Fresh 48 | Bridge Family



Baby Jordan is finally here! Kayela and Austin made their way to the hospital expecting Jordan’s arrival, only to be sent back home the same day. I know so many Mama’s that can relate to this story. Those last couple of weeks are so long and exhausting. False alarms, hospital availability, and so many other factors come into play during this waiting game we call the third trimester. I remember waking up each morning thinking, “Wow. I’m still pregnant.” I am sure Kayela woke up feeling the same way!

A week later, Kayela was admitted and Jordan was here in no time! I got the text, scheduled a drop off for Jamie & Leo, and made my way to Good Samaritan Hospital! This is only my second Fresh 48 Session and my goodness do I love them! Unlike a maternity or newborn session, Fresh 48’s are very photo-journalistic. I observe and document, taking very little control over the situation and it is beautiful.

Little Parker was my last nanny baby before starting SJP and welcoming Leo to the family! He taught Jamie how to be a big brother and me how to care for two little boys at one time. We went on walks almost every day. One baby in the carrier, one in the stroller, their family pup on a leash, and Leo in my belly. WOAH. That is allot when I break it down, but we had so much fun!

Having the privilege to document Parker meet his little brother for the first time was priceless. He wanted to hold Jordan almost right away. Parker gave Jordan kisses and was a master “ssshhher” as he heard Jordan cry for the first time. There was so much concern in his urgent “SSSHHHH SSSSHHHH SSSSHHH” everyone couldn’t help but smile. ♥

I loved being able to document each moment as Kayela’s surgeon, nurse, and Jordan’s nurse made their rounds. I hope you scroll through these portraits and see more than pretty baby skin and love. I hope you linger a little longer on the ones that speak wonder, devotion, innocence, and eternity. I am so excited to have more Fresh 48’s to come.

We’ve done pretty well on our summer bucket list! Top of the kiddo to-do’s was a fire and smore’s. Not pictured: Pizza Sandwiches wrapped in foil. They weren’t a huge hit. This was our last family day at Am’s house in Rockport before she moved. I’m happy we were able to make some cozy memories […]

I google myself once in a while. Not always a great idea as you spend more and more time working with thousands of people over the years but I thought I’d give it a go today. I was pleasantly surprised to find my name included under Tacoma Top 10 Wedding Photographers. I was scrolling through […]

When Clynn and the boys and I were nomadic we spent two or three nights at Hotel Indigo Everett Waterfront and I had wanted to revisit ever since! About a year later, Am and I needed a little local get away after a crazy week it was an easy and incredibly satisfying go-to! As someone […]

Sarah and Michael’s family hosted a cozy, close friends and family, Private Estate Wedding in Ronald, Washington! When I arrived, it had begun to rain. Luckily, the family was prepared with a covered event tent just in case. The rain hung around through the ceremony (with a little thunder, too!) and couple’s photos. Then, cleared […]
