When we first started Fairies & Frogs Photography, we never dreamed it would be something so special as it is to our clients. Absolutely, photographing newborns the way we do is beautiful. But, when a mother let’s us know how extremely pleased and excited that they are about documenting those first few weeks to the first few years of their baby’s life…it’s magical. There really is no other way to describe it.
Fairies & Frogs Photography has been photographing newborns in the Puget Sound area for over 16 years now. Each little baby is so precious in their own right. Over the years we have collected many gorgeous antiques and clothing items to truly make your baby’s session unique. We carefully select only the best pieces and pride ourselves on always keeping it classic. Fairies & Frogs Photography is conveniently located in downtown Olympia, WA in a beautiful vintage craftsman studio on 4th Ave. We have beautiful light coming in all day long and our studio is always warm and cozy.
