Carter | One Year!

I have been following Carter’s first year of life through his mama's Instagram posts and finally had the chance to meet him at his first birthday session! I met Carter’s mom, Trish, when my daughter, Hannah, entered the 2nd grade. And even though Trish is married now, I will probably always affectionately think of her as “Miss Cudney”. This session took place in January during a 2-week stretch of FROST that covered pretty much all of Spokane and I just love the look in the final images.

Happy 1st birthday sweet boy!

Expecting baby Lipps

Josh & Deanna are the sweetest couple. I was posing Deanna at the end of our session and at one point Josh just said to her, "You look beautiful!" and truly she did look beautiful! There is something about that pregnant GLOW...Deanna has it! I can't wait to meet little Adelyn or Griffin and good for you guys for waiting to be surprised!!! That is not easy to do!

My very first session of 2014 – thank you Kerr Family! This was an extended family shoot and the photos are a gift for Grandpa’s 90th Birthday in March. What a great gift! Lots of fun photo groupings with all the family members – cousins only, grandkids + grandparents, ladies only (I think they are a bit outnumbered!), men only, and more. Makes me want to do this with my own family!! It was cold & windy for this early January session – thank goodness for North Face + hand warmers!

Fresh snow just one hour before a scheduled session at a tree farm? Yes, please! Ryan & Andrya live on Bainbridge Island, but came home to Deer Park over the holidays, and we met for photographs on their family farm. The timing of the snow was perfect - everything turned fresh and white! Miss Audrey (age 2 1/2) was wearing the cutest and tiniest pair of Hunter boots I have ever seen...just adorable. Andrya is in the process of starting her own Interior Design business - her business is just getting started and you can find her here (just a splash page for now - but coming soon!). Thanks Cooper family!
