Seattle Children’s Photographer
simple and timeless milestone photography
When these kiddos grow way too fast, documentation is everything. I capture babies and kids in a natural, authentic way with minimal distraction from their perfect little personalities.
Just let the kids be kids.
These indoor baby & children's photo shoots take place in my natural light studio in West Seattle.
Wondering what you need to bring?
You don’t need to worry about bringing anything! I’ve got a supply of minimal, organic toys for them to play with that compliment the studio aesthetic perfectly. I’ve also got several boy and girl outfit options from size newborn to 8T in my client wardrobe that is available for client use at no extra cost!
“Courtney is an angel! She made a connection with my toddler since the first second! Which is amazing because my toddler is very, very reserved and takes a lot of time to let go of mama. Her pictures speak for themselves; absolutely wonderful, calm, cozy, and happy; just like what our session felt like.”
The prices of Courtney’s children and baby sessions are broken down into a session fee + a minimum $100 towards a digital package.
The $150 session fee includes time of session, access to Courtney’s curated client wardrobe, and hand-retouching of the images. For inquiries on full pricing and availability, please contact courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the contact form.
My toddler is shy, how do I get him/her to smile for the photos?
I have worked with all kinds of babies and toddlers during my time as a photographer. After much practice and education, I have accumulated many tricks up my sleeve for getting even the most stubborn toddlers to warm up to me.
My primary goal is to make this photo shoot FUN. We play music, silly games, blow bubbles, play with balloons, and talk about their favorite things.
And most importantly, I keep the picture-taking short & sweet! I’ve found that 20 minute photo shoots are the perfect length for 1-2 year olds. Anything longer and we start to lose ’em.
Can parents be apart of these milestone sessions?
Yes! While it isn’t necessary, I love nothing more than when parents get involved in the photo shoot. They make the photos more personal, and moms especially deserve to get in front of the camera more!
Parents also have the option to choose clothing from my client wardrobe. I have hand-picked pieces that ensure the photos have that dreamy, minimalist look to them!
