Katie, Tom & Baby Ellie

A Yelm Washington Maternity Session

Katie and Tom are the cutest…seriously… don’t try to argue. They are just the most in love, sweet, fun couple you could hope to meet. After meeting up and being hired to shoot their amazing wedding at North West Trek last year I was overjoyed (seriously, there was squealing like a kid on Christmas morning) when they told me they were going to have a baby!

Fast forward a couple months - and here we are! A new house, two busy pups and getting ready to meet baby Ellie soon! Nothing like a few major life changes at once right? I’ll be shooting Katie’s Fresh 48 in the hospital as well as a traditional newborn session in my Tacoma studio once this sweet girl is Earth side! Katie was a glowing, gorgeous bride for her Autumn Wedding…and she’s just as pretty in the full bloom of pregnancy - check out that hair! Ohh laa laa!

We got together at Cochran Memorial Park in Yelm - a sweet little gem hidden in this rural residential community. It boasts a great pond, some trails, and lots of various plants and trees - so it’s a great spot year round for photos. It was definitely chilly, being January in Washington - but we got so lucky with a beautiful dry, and sunny late afternoon.

I am so beyond excited to meet this sweet girl in another few weeks! The countdown is on!
