Olympia Newborn Photographer | Ryleigh Mae

Apr

25

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. ♥

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
