Haelyn | Seattle newborn photographer
There are very few things I enjoy more than redemption stories. Several years ago, an old high school classmate of mine reached out to hire me as their family photographer. I was a newer photographer, was just really taking this game seriously, and was flattered that she thought of me. I shot the session and was pleased as punch at the results. In the grand scheme of things, it was actually a pretty great session considering how fresh I was.
Cue a few years later, I noticed on Facebook that Chelsi was pregnant. And I began to hope they’d hire me again. And then I began to worry. What if they look back at their portraits as critically as I look at them now? There’s a million things I’d change; a million things I’d improve upon. In the last three years, my skills improved drastically. I was hopeful that they’d see how much I’d grown and that they’d want to hire me again. I LOVED working with this family, and I wanted the chance to redeem myself.
Turns out, all of that worrying gave me unnecessary wrinkles. A couple months into their pregnancy, Chelsi hired me to be their Seattle newborn photographer. Let me tell you, I owe them big. Huge. This was a redemption to end all redemption stories. Haelyn was a freaking dream. Dare I say, this may have been my best session to date. I could have photographed her for hours and hours. Every shot we took we nailed. She melted into poses and was as malleable as play dough. She was born to model.
