Spokane Family Photographer / Pentecost family in Riverfront Park

Their story began meeting here in Spokane while going to school. They moved away for work, got engaged and had their wedding in Spokane. Then made another move for school and had a BABY! Now this cute family has happily made it back here for good. It was fun capturing them downtown to show off their "new" home. And it was fun meeting their baby girl for the first time!


Spokane Baby Photography / Vanessa is one!

I feel like I'm on a role of 1 year old babies lately! All my clients had babies at the same time last year (including myself). Here is another sweet girl that did amazing for her shoot. Big brother too! Mom and Dad even got their own photo together... they look just like they did when they got married.


Spokane Family Photographer / Mommy & Me Day at the Studio

I've never done this before, but I decided to have a free walk-in day for Mom's and their children for a Mother's Day special. It was a quick and simple shoot to capture them together. Moms always seem to be the ones taking pictures, rarely in them, unless of course holding a cell phone out and hope the kids (and Mom) look o.k.! This was just a fun chance to capture a more frame worthy photo without planning, scheduling and purchasing a whole session. I had a lot of fun doing it and will hopefully do this and some other similar things in the future! Here are a few favorites from the day. Mommy and MeMother's Day photosmommy photos in studio

Destination Family Photographer / McClelland Family in Meridian, ID

I visited Boise, ID last weekend and photographed a friend's family there! Both of us from Anchorage, Alaska and now both of us in the lower 48! It doesn't seem as impossible to see each other now that it's a car ride away rather than a plane ride away. I've known Whitney since kindergarten and it's amazing to see her kiddos growing up now! Her boys are 9, 6, 5 and 2. On Mother's Day we visited a park nearby their home in Meridian and had lots of photo opportunities. A perfect Mother's Day gift from all her boys to cooperate for photos for her!!! And the weather was perfect.
