Baby Garnet

A Newborn Home Session in Spokane, WA

Nicole & Lyle welcomed sweet baby Garnet in January. This family loves the outdoors so I think Garnet has many hiking, biking, and skiing adventures in her future. I'm willing to bet her two big brothers will show her the ropes...and she will be working hard to keep up with them! Congratulations Stagg family!

Wyatt | Two Years!

I last saw little Wyatt a year ago for his first birthday session and now he is almost TWO! We had all sorts of fun playing with his trucks and cars, but the real fun started when he found the bubble gun toy in my bag! It was almost as if he knew I had that in my bag and he found it almost immediately! There may have been a few tears when we had to put the bubbles away. I heard from his mom that he is getting one for his birthday!

Happy happy birthday sweet boy!

Sweet Siblings

There is something a little extra special about these four. During the session, I watched Michael help Kade tuck in his shirt. I saw Sage gently position Jocie’s head on her shoulder. I heard them all make each other laugh. All four siblings willingly grabbed each other’s hands and put their arms around one another. They were genuinely kind and sweet to one another and by the end of the session I was ready to bring them all home with me! Seriously, what a joy to photograph such happy kids!

Congratulations Mom & Dad – you are doing everything right!! 

Medin-Vaughan-Lipps Family

It is not always easy or convenient to schedule family photos and it’s even more complicated when your children are all grown and they have their own families! But oh when it happens….it’s so good and SO worth the effort! This extended family session was a Mother’s Day gift and happens to be the very first time this wife of 38 years, mother of 3, and grandma to 3 has family portraits of all of her most treasured people together! I know she will cherish these images for years to come! I can’t think of a more thoughtful and precious gift of time and love.

Miller Family

My husband and I sit in awe every Sunday as our pastor, Ryan, delivers his message. No notes. Just all from memory. Every. Single. Week. And his delivery…oh yeah, it’s flawless. We leave every time with a thirst for more and we feel incredibly grateful to be a part of the Branches community. Ryan and his wife, Heidi, are two of the most creative, loving, and encouraging people I know. In addition to leading our church, they own and operate Mango Ink and 08Left. Definitely click and check out these very cool companies! Oh and they are raising three pretty awesome and amazing kids too! Their oldest will be graduating from high school this June, so it was extra special to capture this family of 5 while Isaac is still living at home! 

Thank you Miller Family. It's hard to convey just how much you all mean to me in words. I am incredibly thankful for your friendship. And your session is one of my all time favorites!!!

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!
