Class of 2016 Senior Model Reps

Working with high school seniors is one of my favorite parts of being a photographer. Seniors are juggling so many activities, sports, games, friends, homework, events, and jobs!! The year is also filled with dreams, plans, and preparations for life after high school. I love that social media keeps me connected to these kids and I am able to see glimpses of their journey throughout the year. I am excited to kick off the start of senior season by announcing the Class of 2016 Senior Model Reps for Leaving A Mark Photography! Introducing...

Kate Grossmann | Mt. Spokane High School | Class of 2016

Kate is already concerned that her senior year will be over too soon (it hasn’t even started yet!!). I love that she values kindness, outreach, and the feeling of community at her high school. She is part of the varsity cheerleader and tennis teams as well as the National Honor Society and Key Club. She was recently selected for the role of Captain of the cheer team for her senior year. I have no doubt that she will make an excellent leader for the class of 2016!


Geena McNett | Mt. Spokane High School | Class of 2016

Geena is very involved with the DECA program and her favorite part about high school is working in the student store. Geena has been a gymnast since the age of 4 and started competing in middle school. I first meet Geena when she was just an elementary student; it’s truly a joy to be able to capture this final stage of childhood for her and her family.

I am so proud to have both of these beautiful and talented girls as part of my team!! I look forward to working with you and your families!

L Family

This family initially found me on Instagram! Tara booked the session several months in advance and I could feel the excitement in her words…this would be their very first family photography session. Their little girl was turning ONE and they couldn’t wait to capture this milestone. The entire session took place on their property – so beautiful!

Thank you Dee, Tara, and little Miss Ruby!

Expecting Baby Long

Photography has brought so many opportunities to reconnect with people from my past and each time it happens it is always such a blessing! I've known Damian since he was a little boy (his older sister was my best friend growing up), but I think maybe 15+ years have passed since I last saw him?! I have heard so much about his family and loved meeting them! They all came to their session ready to PLAY and I love that; so easy to get those natural and fun interactions. They are "home" in Spokane now, but will return to life in Kazakhstan later this year.

They were expecting baby #3 at the time of these photos...sweet little Tesla arrived about a month after this session. I will post her newborn photos soon! 

Thank you Long family!

McMurray Family

Darcy and I met at the start of grade school and 35+ years later she is one of my oldest and dearest friends. Our Cabbage Patch dolls and sleepovers have been replaced with a glass of wine and conversation that can last for days and days (if only we had that kind of time together!). This friendship is truly one that I will cherish for the rest of my life. In 2013 this family made a very difficult decision to move from Spokane to Portland, leaving behind family, dear friends and a community that cared so deeply for them. I am so thankful that they have come "home" to Spokane several times over the past year and that we were able to sneak in a family session with all SIX of them in the same place!! I love you all dearly!

Shelby + Graham

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 in love and so happy. 

Demske Family

Record temp of 101 degrees when this session took place in late July! Everyone powered through with the promise of treats and water at the end…it was HOT! This family recently moved back to Spokane after living overseas and we connected through a mutual friend…I am so grateful for referred business. Thank you Demske family!
