Thank you all for such a beautiful year everyone...! Whether I photographed you personally, or you supported my page by liking/commenting, I appreciate you beyond words.
2017 was a year of many milestones for me, both personally and professionally. I am so looking forward to what 2018 may bring not only myself, but for all of my loved ones. I had a total of 262 sessions this year, which included 11 births (4 of which were doula clients), 37 maternity sessions, 42 newborn sessions, 23 milestone sessions, and the remaining 149 were mini sessions throughout the year. I am beyond blessed to have each and every one of you in my life...Here is just a very small highlight of my 2017 sessions; I couldn't even fathom fitting them all in one of these templates!
If you are looking for a Maternity | Birth | Newborn | Breastfeeding portrait photographer, I would love to be considered to document these moments for you. Cheers to a beautiful, and peaceful 2018 for all!!
We had our first serious snowfall in Spokane over the weekend, and I begged my [ very sick ] husband to snap a few photos of my 24 week bump...because it is a-growin'!!! We go in for an ultrasound this week to see our sweet baby for the first time, and we are so excited to see his or her face! Four babies in, and sometimes, I feel like it's the first time all over again...so anxious/nervous/happy...all of the emotions at once.
We are finally set on names for both sexes (for now, haha!). Since we give all of our children two middle names each, it truly gets harder and harder with each child to figure out THREE names that we all love enough, and all agree on (since we now need the older sibling's input too, of course). We had the girl's name picked out since we were pregnant with Simon (and also didn't know sex), so we've kept it hidden away for the potential second girl someday. And Porter, well, we both just really like it. I half blame it on my husband's love of beer though. But alas, we have:
