Hailey M. Graduation

Okay, so this day was amazing! Not only was the weather and location on point but the model was oh soo gorgeous and she couldn’t stop smiling! Like literally; we tried to do some serious poses and it just made her laugh and smile even bigger! 

Hailey, your smile can brighten up an entire room; you are such an amazing and kind hearted girl. I wish you all the best in your future and know you have amazing friends and family cheering you on all the way!

This post wouldn’t be complete without the crown vic photos…After all the formal photos were said and done, this wild bunch suggested they climb on top of the crown vic for a couple pictures. I wasn’t the only one taking photos, even some passersby were taking snapchat photos. I just hope they got my good side and used a flattering filter on us before they posted it to their story!

Welcome Baby ‘B’

I feel I may often over stay my welcome when I go to a client’s home to photograph their newborns. It’s just too hard to leave those precious little ones and their doting mothers who quickly become friends. There is nothing better than staying in touch with clients + watching their families grow.

This session was a special one because I got to fly into Spokane + stay a few days in the home of one of my favorite families. Big sister doted on her new brother and her parents did an amazing job of making her feel just as important as ever. I gotta say they are doing a bang up job raising their kids. I’m guessing it must be from all that time watching my husband + I raise our boys. . . and then doing the opposite!

M&A maternity

I’ve had the privilege of working with Amy for the past 2 years and honestly, I don’t think you can find anyone sweeter or more kind. From the day she announced she was expecting until now it’s been fun watching her bump grow and seeing the excitement that she has for the arrival of this baby.

Finally being able to meet Mark after all the stories I had heard from Amy at work (all good ones I promise!!) I could tell how much he admired his wife and how proud and excited he is to become a dad.

With parents like you two and the love you have for each other this baby is such a lucky one.  There is no doubt this baby will be loved unconditionally (even if baby turns out to be a bomber fan 😉 )

So excited for you two and I cannot wait to meet baby k!

The ‘P’ Family

This was supposed to be a family session but it didn’t quite go as planned. Poor mama was feeling under the weather but lil ‘A’ still needed his 6(ish) month life documented. In their first year they change so much + we don’t want to forget that chubber rolly polly stage while it’s still considered adorable!

Not wanting to go too far we used their backyard to get the job done. This ended up being a great choice because the boys felt comfortable in familiar space. Not to mention it kept a certain brother ‘fenced’ in!

Every time I photograph this family I am reminded of the bond between brothers. As a mother of two boys myself, I love watching how each brother is unique, yet the same + how that bond evolves over time. These boys have amazing parents + I can only imagine the great adventures this family will have together!p_0012p_0010 p_0013p_0017 p_0016p_0014p_0015p_0011p_0020 p_0022 p_0023 p_0024 p_0025p_0018p_0019p_0021

R&C engagement

When I first saw that Cameo and Robb had started dating I thought to myself, ‘now there’s a perfect match!’ So when I got a text one day from Cameo saying, “I have news to tell you!” I knew right away Robb had popped the question!

These two are seriously so sweet! I loved watching from behind the lens as Robb would tease Cameo, making her laugh and just seeing the big smiles they have for each other. Hearing the story of their first date was too adorable. Robb took Cameo out to supper at the Fireside Bistro, they were both so nervous and wanted to impress each other. (I’m not to sure if it was Robb or the mushroom linguini that won Cameo’s heart first 😉 )

I’m so excited for you two and I wish you more than the best
