Shelby + Graham are High School sweethearts, but they recently said goodbye to one another to start a new chapter of their relationship...a long distance relationship! We met for this session just two nights before Graham left. Everything was about to change for them and it was really special to be able to capture their love and friendship right at this very moment...so in love and so happy.
I first met Robyn in 2008 when my husband and I were househunting. We stopped to look at a house and Robyn came right up to us, welcomed us to the neighborhood, and encouraged us to go and peek in the windows since the house was new and empty. A month later we became neighbors + friends! This family is so fun...our session was a mixture of running, wrestling, climbing with lots of love, laughter, and joy! Thank you Dan, Robyn, Mia, Colin, and Owen!
This was a fun session...a new location and this gorgeous family made for a great afternoon! And there is really nothing better than taking photos for dear friends! Ryan is my pastor and one of the most creative persons I know. And Heidi, also incredibly creative, beautiful, and so loving. Together they own a fabulous card company right here in Mead, WA - Mango Ink. I've ordered from them many times over the years and love the quality and personal service. Three years ago they planted a little church called Branches. My family and I attended that very first Sunday and knew immediately that this was the start of something awesome and we were all so excited to be a part of it. It was an honor to photograph a family that I hold so near and dear to my heart! Thank you Ryan & Heidi - I hope you cherish these photos for many years.
I first met Corbin and Parker at a session we did in April this year at Riverside State Park...these two are fun, sweet, and full of energy!! They recently became big brothers to baby Sophia so it was time for a family session. The boys managed to pick up nearly every stick on-site and swing them like swords...I think their little sister will be well protected!! That dreamy sunset light came near the end of our session (the kids were in the car warming up) and I was able to get a few shots of Jon & Shyelle together - just gorgeous together and so in LOVE.
I have been blessed to capture several milestones for the E family this year including maternity, birth, newborn, and now family photos! Thank you Scott & Cara for the opportunity to capture such priceless moments. I have loved watching your sweet little family grow!
This family knows how to have FUN! This session took place in their yard and they had all sorts of awesome ideas for photo props...things like tire swings, tree houses, pets, the bbq, a football, 22 year old MHS t-shirt, the backyard campfire, a hard helmet, pick axe...just to name a few! Rich and Jen are high school sweethearts and will be celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary later this month. They moved back to the Spokane area a couple years ago and I hope they never have to move again. Our friendship dates backs over 25 years (I met Rich in Junior High School!). Wonderful people. Awesome family.
