This summer I had a shoot in LA and was lucky enough to drop in and do an in home session for a longtime friend of mine.  

In home sessions are one of my faves to shoot...especially if you have little ones. Everyone is a little more comfortable and you get to capture what life is really like and...

The reality of nap time. 


I LOVE in home sessions! Whether it's just a couple or an entire herd of a family.

Everyone is much more comfortable and there's something so special about the everyday life that I think we miss while we're busy living. 

It's even more magical when my clients just let me immerse myself into their world and let me do my thing. That's the best. 




Married just over a year and expecting their first child, I think these two would say life has a funny way of working out, and being able to document their wedding and now their soon to be family, has been so fun.

Walking around downtown Spokane, in early Spring, can be an adventure weather wise, but it for sure held out for us and I think the results are amazing. Plus the right amount of wind can do wonders for a woman's hair....and let's be real, Tiff's hair is Beyoncé status.

Happy Sunday!


A few weeks ago I blogged these two (here) and their baby bump and I finally got to meet the little princess not long after. I don’t think I’ve ever seen two people more happy or in love. They’ve had quite the journey and it’s awesome to finally see them become parents.

One of the greatest things about being a photographer, is that I become friends with my clients. Especially when they have let me into their world more than once to document their lives. I was almost a little teary when I left their house because I had seen them so much in the last few weeks.

Congrats you guys! She’s beautiful!


Proverbs 13:12 // Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

This verse has been a long time favorite of mine because there are certain hopes and dreams that I'm waiting to see fulfilled, so I can only imagine what this couple feels just weeks away from meeting their daughter...their first born.  

The process has been a long and hard one for them. I remember having coffee with Alicia and telling her how her husband is going to lose his mind over this baby girl and watching her get emotional. 

Don't give up. Hold tight. Hope is coming for you. 


When you walk up to your client's home and you hear great music coming from it....you know the session is going to awesome. 

A beautiful home. A beautiful couple. Sweet kittens. This day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect couple to photograph. 

They are the essence of my ideal client. 


When I talk about lifestyle photography, this is exactly what I mean. Capturing your life as it's unfolding around you. It's an amazingly beautiful thing to be a part of. 

I've known Emily since second grade and it was surreal to watch her be a mom and wife. She and her husband are so good at being parents. They are chill and fun and those girls know that they are loved.
