Seattle Newborn Photography for Mother's Day - The Beauty of Watching Families Grow

I was just looking through the Seattle family photo shoots we did in May of last year (exactly one year ago) and it was so exciting to see how much our clients have grown...just in a year! I scroll through our blog and I find the same family’s maternity photos, newborn photos, 1 year birthday photos and then another maternity session for their next baby on the way! Being here for this growth is so exciting.  This is why we are so crazy about our Baby’s 1st Year package (4 Photo Shoots in 1 Year). We get to watch these sweet couples become parents and celebrate their first Mother’s Day. We see them at their first newborn shoot trying to figure out how diapers work and then we see them two years later with their second baby and they’re total pros!

Today, I unburied photos we took of the Riche family for their Mother’s Day newborn photo shoot in May 2015. We also took their maternity photos and I’m a huge fan of Anita’s Seahawks themed nail polish (wootwoot! Go 12!!) That baby’s being born into a good family ;) hehe As for their newborn photos, I’m simply in love with how pretty Baby Isla is all decked out in her pink outfit and baby headband (gotta love it!) and just chillin’ in the park with her awesome giraffe! (I want a giraffe like that - haha). -- Thank you so much Riche family for asking the Happy Film Company to capture these special moments of your life! Happy Throwback Thursday! Xx Chamonix

“I met Anita and Matt last year for their Seattle maternity photography session, and was so excited to meet their little cutie! Baby Isla is so adorable, with giant eyes and the sweetest lil smirk. I met up with them for their Seattle newborn photos for Mother’s Day. We cozied up and snuggled with some stuffed animals, played in the grass and through the trees, and even had some balloons! Isla was a champ, laughing and getting so many kisses from her parents. I love getting to meet all the babies of our lovely clients, and was so happy to see Isla in the flesh! Thank you so much Riche family for once again choosing the Happy Film Company to take your Seattle family portraits. We love working with you guys :) ~ Ashley”

Halpin Family's Beach Picnic - Family Photos Seattle - the Happy Film Company

Chan and Aiofe had a super fun mother daughter date on the beach! Aiofe yelled "beach!" the second her mom suggested it, and the three of us headed out of their Burien home into the sunshine. Aiofe had just turned two and was fascinated with sandcastles, seaweed, and flying her kite. One of her favorite things to do with her mom is twirl and dance! She even spun so fast her rainboots came flying off... more than once! ;) Chan brought delicious strawberries for snacks and even a cookie treat. I had so much fun running across the sand with such a happy family! Thanks so much Halpin family for choosing the Happy Film Company for your Family Photos, Seattle! We hope you love your sunny, happy photos!!

Tonee & Cici's Mother-Daughter Edmonds Beach Walk - the Happy Film Company - Seattle Family Photographers

My flip-flops were literally being carried away by the tide. I sprinted down the beach to save them and left Victoria with Tonee and Cici looking adorable on the beach. These two gorgeous ladies were our third mother-daughter shoot in the past month and it's so fun to see moms with their daughters at all these different ages. Tonee & Cici drew hearts in the sand, waded out into the chilly Puget Sound water and even picked up some slimy kelp (Cici's little face when she lifted it out of the water is one of my favorite expressions we've ever captured haha). Thank you so much Tonee & Cici for asking the Happy Film Company to be your Seattle family photographers! You're both so sweet and we had a great time playing with you on the beach. Enjoy! — xoxo Chamonix & Victoria
