The sweet people in these images are near and dear to my heart. I met Shaliena in high school nearly 25 years ago and we have been friends ever since....college, weddings, babies, moves, jobs, and so much more. She has been on my side through it all. I don't get to see her as much as I would like as they live on the other side of the state, so the time we do have together now is so precious. They made a special trip into Spokane from the river during their vacation this summer to do this session and I am so thankful are schedules aligned to make this evening possible. Sophie is 12 and quite possibly the most photogenic 12 year old I know! Wow! James is 10 and had me cracking up with all his different funny faces and poses. I love you all dearly and look forward to seeing you again soon. xo
With 3/4 of their kids in their 20's now, it's getting harder and harder for the Alley Family to all be in the same place.
Two under two! A beautiful mix of chaos, patience, love, and tenderness.
Craig & Jenny are high school sweethearts and have been married for 14 years.
Kathryn and her boys love being outdoors, traveling, movie nights, and going to the beach (me too!).
First ever family session for the Mandel's!
John and Jenny have 3 adult children (19, 20, 23) and it's been years since they last had family photos - it's not easy to get everyone together in the same place these days!
What a perfect night and beautiful session!
I was driving to this session in the RAIN, but the SUN came out just as we arrived (hallelujah!) and we had the most perfect weather!
he weather, the location, and this adorable family made all my maternity session dreams come true!!
