Olympia Newborn Photographer | Ryleigh Mae



I have struggled so much with my identity in saying something as bold as “Olympia Newborn Photographer”. Weddings? Absolutely. Newborns are a completely different ball game. But I love them just the same. Newborns and weddings are my yin and yang. For weddings I bring all the energy! Newborns are filled with white noise and slow movement. I tell all of my newborn mommas how humbled I am. The babies call all the shots for me. We take as much time as necessary. The learning curve is different. The light is different. The bodies are SO different. There’s no cracking a cheesy joke at just the right moment to get the shot I’m envisioning. There’s just the white noise and any training’s and tips I can find in between the throws of wedding bliss.

Why offer newborn portraits? Because when I’ve developed such amazing relationships with my brides, I just can’t say no when they come back a year later. 😉 ♥

I picture a day where I’m shooting 1-2 newborns a week and weddings every other weekend with all the engagements and maternity inbetween! What can I say? I LOVE this stage of life.

Give me all the love, marriage, and baby carriage years!

Thank you so so much to Sydney and Nolan for inviting me to document sweet Ryleigh’s newborn portraits! I am so excited to see your family grow as you cherish each milestone as Mom & Dad to another beautiful baby girl.

Drop your vote blow!! Who thinks Ryleigh is a red head like Daddy?! It’s a hot topic and my studio lighting sure thinks so!

Welcome to the world baby girl. ♥

They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
