Seattle Newborn Photographer | Eden Bao Photography bio picture

    As a mother of two (that's me to the right, with my eldest), I know all too well how fleeting these moments are---the beauty of pregnancy, the awe of a new baby, the excitement of their first milestone…those priceless moments fly by so quickly. As you start your adventure with your baby, your love for them will grow while early memories of them will fade. Your baby will only be new and tiny once in their lifetime. You have one chance to capture that moment before it passes you by.

    One of Seattle best maternity photographers and Seattle newborn photographers, Eden Bao Photography is based out of Bothell and offers premier maternity, newborn and baby portraits to the Greater Seattle metro area in Washington.

    I would be honored to capture these precious memories of your baby’s life from within the womb to their first birthday so that you and your family may cherish them forever.

Here comes another adorable newborn! It’s easy to get eye candy photographs when a picture perfect family comes into the studio. I was honored that Aziz’s parents chose me to capture the first two weeks of his life. Isn’t he handsome like his parents? Life is great as a Duvall newborn photographer when you get to see super cute babies regularly.

Most newborns usually sleep through the session. However, we were able to get a few wide-eyed photographs of Aziz, which is rare at his age.

As a Seattle Family Photographer, I love it when I get the chance to take photographs outside. My outdoor shoots are unpredictable because of lighting and the weather. However, the scenery and landscape always make up for it. Instead of creating a suitable background, I look for nearby places of interest. It’s these locations that will make the photograph unique and memorable.

There is nothing like having nature and sunshine in your photos. I believe that no amount of studio lighting can ever compare to that of natural light! My responsibility as a family photographer is to ensure the best timing to take pictures, which is usually during sunrise or sunset. There is usually less people around during those times too, so it makes photo editing much easier.

This beautiful Mama chose to include her family in her photographs, instead of the usual studio maternity shots. (I’ve photographed her first maternity session in studio, newborn session, baby session, and cake smash session.)

If you look closely, you might even see her belly. Congratulations to this lovely family of three, soon to be four!

Okay, I admit it. Out of all the different services I offer, my favorite is that of being a Maternity Photographer. Sure, I get ridiculously cute newborns and babies coming to my studio. Not to mention beautiful families and family reunions. Yet, it’s something about photographing a pregnant woman that brings me the most satisfaction. It must be the fact that this is such a short period in a woman’s life- at only nine months. Having been pregnant myself, I know that this is a time of great joy. There is a little person inside you! It truly is a miracle. I love that part of being a maternity photographer in Bellevue.

I am honoured that Sarah chose me to capture this brief period of her life. The couple also brought in sentimental items- clothes for the new baby and a special t-shirt. These items will be memorable for their new daughter. I’m so glad we were able to capture this all on photo.

Congratulations Sarah. You look absolutely gorgeous!

As a Renton maternity photographer, I am constantly looking for new props and settings for my studio. It’s my goal to shoot the most unique and beautiful photographs for all my clients. Therefore, I was super excited to get a new vintage French settee! Janet is the first client to use the prop for her maternity shoot. I placed her in what I call the ‘settee of roses’, instead of a ‘bed of roses’. She looks gorgeous!

It’s important for a new Mama to feel glamorous during the tough nine months on her body.  Congratulations Janet!

Sometimes unexpected things happen and parents can’t make it to a Newborn session within the 2 week period. As a Redmond Newborn Photographer- and a mother myself, I am all too familiar with the unexpected things that can happen.  Kamden came in to our studios after having surgery at 2 weeks old and three weeks following recovery. He’s a tough little guy, just like his brothers!

It is possible to get newborn photos done at anytime up to 6 weeks old. A good newborn photographer can photograph babies at any age and the memories from the session is what’s important.

I do shoot newborns up to three months old. However, the older the baby, the less likely he or she will look or pose like a newborn. A baby past two weeks has developed further along and their ligaments have strengthened. They may not be able to tolerate some (or even most) of the “curled up” newborn poses. They are more alert and less likely to sleep through pose changes, so there will be less variety of poses. Instead of swaddling, we will focus on a wrapped baby, open-eyes and parent/sibling shots.

That being said, all babies are different and I have photographed older infants with great success in the past. Some babies this age will allow me to do the typical newborn poses. There is just no guarantee that your baby will be one of those!

Kamden did well in his photoshoot and I was able to get some newborn curly poses in there.  Welcome to the world, Kamden- you’re a brave little guy!
