The first few weeks and months of welcoming a baby into your life are a whirlwind of love, exhaustion, and getting to know one another. These tender and intimate moments with your partner are incredibly special as you navigate this new chapter together. As a Puyallup family photographer, I consider it a privilege to document these fleeting moments for new parents.

What To Expect During A Family Portrait Session

If you’re considering family portraits but aren’t sure what to expect, let me shed some light on the process.

At Salt And Ink Photography, my style combines candid and portrait photography. In a typical family session, you can anticipate:

  1. Candid and posed family portraits, capturing the essence of your family bond.
  2. Moments of connection between parents and children, both posed and candid.
  3. Detail images that focus on the tiny features of your little ones, like their fingers, toes, or the swirl of their hair.
  4. Solo portraits of your children, highlighting their unique personalities.

Optional: If you’re currently nursing, we can include nursing portraits to document those sweet moments of snuggles and bonding.

Once we’ve taken care of the initial steps, we’ll work on wardrobe ideas and bring your session to life.

After the session, we’ll schedule a design and ordering appointment to create custom artwork showcasing your family’s unique beauty and connection.
