The Webley Family {Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer}

Aw…this sweet family. I’ve said it before, but it’s so true…I absolutely love seeing my returning families each year and seeing how much their little ones have grown.

I first met this family in 2014, when their sweet little Reagan was turning 1. They lived further away, but her mom had a vision for their session and was willing to drive to make this happen. It was a magical session and one of my all time favorites…which I shared in this post.

The next year, I was so excited to hear that they were expecting another baby girl, and even more thrilled when they asked me to capture little Reese as a newborn. So precious…more of my favorites!

Fast forward to this past fall, when I was again excited to hear from this family and plan another session…and even more excited to see these little growing little girls on the move, and capture those precious sister interactions!

Big sister Reagan…sweet as always, and mastering her twirling skills… :)

Sweet little Reese – growing so fast!

Sweet sisters…

This sweet family…and a little back story on the reality of trying to capture little ones…it isn’t always easy…little ones wanting to be exert their independence, run and play and explore this fun new place to which their parents have brought them! These two wanted to explore just the same, but we managed to reign them in – I love what we captured and their family interactions are some of my favorites!

I love trying to capture those individual moments with both Dad and Mom…

Webley family….as always, I loved seeing all of you & capturing your precious, growing family!

The Anderson Family – {Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer}

A blog post! A real blog post.

I’m not going to lie….it make me cringe when I look at the date of my last post. Last year was truly an amazing year in so many ways. I met so many fun, wonderful families, loved seeing my past families and their growing kids, and worked with so many bright, inspiring seniors…and in the middle of all of the scheduling, shooting and experiences….blogging somehow fell to the wayside! While I love having this platform to share stories and more images from sessions….I realize that sometimes I just have to focus on delivering images that my clients love, while also balancing my full and busy life with my family. I know I’m not alone in this….life is a constant juggle for ALL of us. Time keeps moving forward, my girls keep growing and changing, and in the middle of all of this, sometimes, something has to give. With that said, I’m going to cut myself a little slack and move forward from here…trying my best to share some of my sessions and stories from this past busy season, while also sharing some personal stories and images from adventures with my own family!

So…no better place to start than right here and now! :)

I’m going to start with a family that just makes me smile….the Anderson family! This is my second year working with this family…their kids are busy, adorable and truly hilarious….every time I look through their images, I find myself smiling at my screen…I just love them!!

The theme of their session this year? Contain the busy toddler while on the busy downtown streets….thankfully, it was a quiet morning, but we know how quick toddlers can move!

Sweet Blake…your adorable and mischievous little smile!! :)

And big sister Brynn….such a love…full of personality and funny as can be!
Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0004
One of my absolute favorites of these two….good thing for a fast shutter, because little Blake lasted a matter of seconds in this position! :)
Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0003

A beautiful family….
Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0006 Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0002
And I loved having grandparents there for the session, and especially when we captured this generations photo! Brynn loved giving hugs (or some variation of choking-love) but I loved the expressions she created! :)

A few more of these cuties….

Anderson family….loved your session – a highlight of my season to see you all again and see how your sweet kids have grown!

The Graebner Family

One of the things I cherish most about my journey in photography are the connections, friendships and shared experiences I’ve had with other photographers. I’m not sure if it’s because we are like-minded, or if it’s the shared passion of photography and storytelling, but some of my very favorite people, in the history of ever, have entered my life through photography. Annie is one of those favorites! We first met in 2009 at a photography workshop in Tacoma (Thank you Me Ra Koh!) and I felt an immediate connection to her, and have always been so grateful for social media as we’ve followed each other’s journeys over the years….both in our business, and in the lives of our families.

Late last year, Annie and I connected again when she was talking about going through a rebranding process for her photography business (check out Annie’s beautiful work here!) and as part of this process, we started the conversation about having me capture a few head shots of her, but mainly, capturing more of WHO she is, to include images with her family that she treasures. I know it’s a common issue for so many of us….but getting yourself in the picture, when you always want to be the one taking them, is a challenge. And sometimes, there are moments in our lives that bring the importance of having these pictures to the forefront. I could hardly wait for the opportunity to capture these for my sweet friend.

We met at one of their favorite spots to go as a family….Golden Gardens Park. These five.….aren’t they the cutest??

If you follow my work, or know about my own children….you’ll know how these mother/daughter images have a special place in my heart.

Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0011 Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0009

Truly….I couldn’t get enough.
Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0031 Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0029

And we wanted to make sure to get a few behind-the-scenes with Annie capturing her family as well.

And we can’t forget about Dad…..

And seriously, this is one of my favorite “real” moments of our session!

And then sometimes, you just want to run and play in the sand and wind…

So many favorites…

Annie, thank you for asking and trusting me to capture these. This shoot was so special to me and I’m so glad we were able to make it happen – I adore every single one of you Graebners!! xo

Baby Isabelle – 3 months {Gig Harbor Tacoma Child Family Photographer}

Today, I’m sharing some fun captures from baby Isabelle’s 3 month shoot….boy, do I adore this crew. After their shoot that morning, I went home and uploaded their images…excited to see what we’d captured, and I literally laughed out loud at so many of their images. Their energy, candid interactions, and attempts to help and love on their baby sister….I was laughing so many times during their shoot & even more looking at the results. Their shoots are fast & furious & FUN.

We started out with capturing all 3 of these cuties, loving their sister…and attempting to hold her up during that early 3 month-not-quite-sitting-yet phase…

And it ended up being more fun to just lay on the ground together!

I’ve also quickly learned that, with these little ones, we attempt to go with some of my ideas and set-ups, and while I capture those quickly, it soon evolves into something funny, or even better than I had planned.

For instance, we start with capturing sweet Isabelle during tummy-time, and while the siblings joined for a few, sweet sister decided that it might be more fun to lay on top of her! (don’t worry….mom was nearby to save sweet Isabelle ;)

And when we start to capture a few of Isabelle on her own personal blanket, little Charlize just can’t help herself with hugs and love, and throwing a leg up and over sister. You know…snuggle time. :)

And then it’s always fun to capture these two running around together :)

And can we talk about those baby blues??

Some of my very favorites were these three in the tall grass together….

And then when their mom brought out this tutu…..you know I did a happy dance and likely squealed…..LOVE.

It was the perfect way to wrap up a very fun and busy morning….loved our time, and was already looking forward to their 6 month shoot – stay tuned! :)

Mika – Pure Joy! {Gig Harbor Tacoma Family & Child Photographer}

Oh Mika. This sweet girl. I’m not sure I can express what an absolute joy it is to photograph this girl, but I’m going to try my best. :)

A few years back, I was first asked to photograph Mika and her sweet family, and love that I’ve been able to chronicle a few priceless annual photos with this little lady. This year? The focus was all on Mika. And I think this girl was feeling it. She was ALL about exploring and trying out all sorts of tricks and poses for me.

A dream for me? Yes, it most certainly was. She didn’t need any encouragement…this girl is pure JOY.

We started at the steps of the State Capitol..endless options here!

Could she be any cuter?

And then we went to the beautiful gardens to explore….her coloring, the vibrancy of the flowers….I was in love!!
