Everyday Life | June

Little by little I am working my way through personal edits which always seem to take a back seat to client images, but still SO important to me to capture bits and pieces of our everyday life! And just when I need a little encouragement to keep moving ahead with this project I find out a friend of mine and amazing photographer in Western Washington, Lisa Jump, is joining me in capturing and posting her Everyday Life as well! Take a moment and check out her blog here

A few of my favorite moments from June...first nail polish for Emily, summer evenings in our backyard, band concert, Twins turned 13 (how in the world is that possible?!), playing in the Spokane River, celebrating with my Dad on Father's Day, a Frozen Princess Party (thanks Jill!), and a weekend at the cabin.

I started Everyday Life, a monthly blog post, in January 2014 as a personal commitment to keep shooting, editing, and sharing my family photos. Follow along on Instagram too at @leavingamarkphoto or #oureverydaylife2014.


Clara Jane

Clara Jane is the 4th baby girl I have photographed this Spring/Summer! So many sweet little girls this season and I have loved every minute with these precious newborns. Clara’s session was double the fun since she has a big sister, 3 year old, Evelyn. As you can imagine, baby Clara is receiving most of the attention at the moment and Evelyn was so good during the session. Mama planned small little gifts for Evelyn to open during the session which kept her very busy! :-) Miss Clara did not want to miss any part of her newborn session and was wide awake for most of it...I love the photo where her hand is up near her mouth, almost as if she is telling her Mama a secret!

Congratulations Hill family! Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture these precious moments!!
