At a mere 6 pounds, this little girl was so petite and delicate in my arms. Perfect little features on such a beautiful little girl...
In my opinion, there is nothing more perfect and beautiful as a newborn child. To see the process of said child being born, is even more breath-taking. I have so much pride for each mother I watch go through labor...it's just such an amazing part of nature, that I am so blessed to be apart of.
Although the nurses didn't lay him towards me when he first entered this World, and laid on mama's chest, it was still a perfect moment to capture...
I walked in to a room full of sleeping giants, but one wide awake mama, still managing naturally through the pain of each contraction, taking each with beauty & grace.
Everyone was just so tired...and I was bright and chipper, at 6am, with quad-shot coffee in-hand! :)
This is why you have your best friend come to your delivery...massages!!!!
"I think it's time to start pushing..."
The look of Love...and relief.
...and now we eat :)
Sometimes I feel like I don't share enough of my personal life with my "fans" and followers...so here is my personal post for the week :)
My son is now officially a year and a half old. Wait....where did all that time go?!?!?!
These two guys are what keep me going day-to-day, even when it gets hard, they are always there with a smile and a hug to help me get through anything. As my fiancé and I come up to the one-year mark on our engagement, the only thing we have "set" is the date: August 31, 2013!! *squeeee!* We have a lot of planning ahead of us, but I am so looking forward to it.
The Holiday season is always a stressful one, what with my mother having 8 fully decorated Christmas trees every year (that stay up for at LEAST 2 months after...), trying to get all our family members together, and then...my Birthday (the 29th). So, I am thankful and blessed that I have a career that allows me to take the last 2 weeks of this month off for family and my own peace of mind.
I got IN FRONT of the camera for the first time since becoming a "professional", all thanks to Jamee, from J.Lynn Photography! She did a great job at capture my...........unique...........personality ;)

There are so many exciting things brewing up for 2013...I can hardly contain myself!! More details soon...
Good ole Spokane winter weather was actually good to us on this gorgeous sunny (but cold) day. This couple made being photographed look so easy and so incredibly natural...the love between the two of them is undeniable. Cannot wait until their wedding day...AND part ll of their e-session...as soon as it snows!!
I am so blessed to be referred to so many amazing families, such as this one. It makes my job that much more rewarding. This little man gave me a lot of serious faces, but I'm glad I could get a few grins from him :) He is going to grow up to be such a handsome young man...
These are just a few of the MANY adorable Holiday Facebook timeline covers I have available for my clients! Thank you to Birdesign & The Album Cafe.
