Childhood Milestone Session | Gig Harbor Child Photographer | Moss & Mint Photography

Meet Atlas:  adorable, dazzling smile, incredibly charming personality, and won me over in .02 seconds.  When my super-talented photographer friend, Bree (go check out her stunning newborn and baby galleries here: Tiny Dreamers), asked me to capture some photos of Atlas, I was simultaneously excited and terrified at the opportunity. I mean, her work is gorgeous and revolves around babies–so the pressure was on and I needed to make sure my photo skills were polished.  We chose an amazing location at a local nursery and she brought the cutest outfits for him, and he brought his smiles…and then we made magic!


I love being creative during sessions, and the two of us had so much fun with all of the pretty backdrops and colors, and the vintage style of his outfits added so much extra to the set. It was just perfect and you can see the result!  Thanks to Bree, I got to snuggle and get my baby fix, and I will definitely be incorporating more outfits like these into sessions.  This session really fed my creative soul <3

Hello and thank you for taking an interest in my work!  I’m Cheri, the photographer behind Moss & Mint Photography, and I am a storyteller.  My passion is capturing the real, the raw, the beautiful story called your life, and providing you with the tangible memories from our time together for you to cherish forever.  I specialize in lifestyle family photography, as well as celebrating childhood milestones from birth all the way through high school graduation. Through my lens, I find the magic in everyday life.  My images are rich in color and emotion, and often times set in gorgeous locations. I love warm sunsets and families dancing in it as sun dips behind the trees, photographing all the little details of exactly how you are at this moment.  When you look back at your images, you will remember the moments, feel the warmth, and experience it all over again.
