Miller Family

A Greenbluff Christmas Tree Farm Family Session in Spokane, WA

Millers! This is a session that I look forward to EVERY year! You all mean the world to me and I love watching you LOVE each other! The laughter, the inside jokes, the extra hugs...it all comes through loud and clear during your session and makes my job EASY and so much fun. Ryan & Heidi are church leaders at Branches while also running their own businesses at Mango Ink and 08 Left. So much talent, creativity, and inspiration in this family! xo

Naslund Family

A Greenbluff Christmas Tree Farm Family Session in Spokane, WA

I love working with new people, but there is something extra sweet when friends choose you to photograph their family. It always ends up feeling more like a fun outing and nothing like work! I left this family session with a full cup and a grateful heart for all the opportunities I have received through photography. Incredibly loving, generous, authentic, and filled with joy are just a few of the words I would use to describe these sweet souls and I am so thankful for their presence in my life. Thank you Jeff, Karissa, Maddie, + Ellie! xo

Planning for a Winter Session

It seems like I just shot this session, but it actually took place LAST November! Aren't these kids so adorable!? I get to shoot this family again in a few weeks, so it is high time that I share these images!

Anyone else notice the dramatic change in weather in the last week? October was beautiful and unseasonably warm in Spokane, but November is here and winter is settling in with expected highs only in the 40’s this week. This doesn’t sound all that chilly at first, but it gets cold fast especially when little ones are involved. I have had clients show up in light layers (no coats!) for winter sessions and within about 10 minutes everyone starts to look stiff and uncomfortable. Family sessions generally last 45 – 60 minutes in length and I can’t stress the importance of warm clothes enough! Layer, layer, layer! And please bring coats, hats, and mittens for little ones!

I love the outfits this family chose to wear and wanted to highlight this session for anyone else preparing for a winter session. And for more ideas on how to bundle up for winter sessions, visit my Pinterest board.
