Spokane, WA, Destination Wedding Photography | Family and Baby Photographer » Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is almost here. That means my sons 1st birthday which I still have yet to plan (poor guy, its tough to be the 2nd child). And lots of seeing friends and family for the holidays. All while (yes I’m crazy) trying to potty train my 2 year old. But even though it is so challenging it has been so nice to only have 1 in diapers for 2 days. haha I mean who knew it could be so nice. Having 2 kids in a row I just did know the luxury. I am just hoping and praying that she will finally get it and we can leave the house for more then a quick trip here and there. So my fingers are crossed and we are chugging a long with our days.

I was thinking of what photos to blog next and I really wanted to show you all the progressing of beautiful baby Huntleigh. Like I have said before Olivia booked my 1 year collection so I was able to capture her 1st year of life and it was such an amazing progression. So without further ado here is a few from her 3 month photo session.

If you would like to check out all her sessions from before please do

So now that I have a 2 year old I thought I would finally share Hayley’s 1st birthday party. It is long over due but it was just featured on Hostess with the Mostess and Kiira from Eye Heart Pretty Things couldn’t be more excited!

Kiira was a huge part of making this all come together. If you ever need any paperie done for your birthday, wedding, save the date, you have to contact her because she is absolutely the best at what she does. Or just need an event designer she is your go to girl! I can’t say enough about Kiira truly she is just that amazing!

We had so much fun putting everything together! From the geometric garland to painting the backdrop for the Photo Booth. One thing I do love about throwing these parties for my kids is the memories of hand making all the little details. I will never forget all the time and love that went into each project. Even though I am always rushing to put everything together and it only last for a few hours. It has been an unforgettable time in my life. Birthday parties have always been such a huge joy in my life. I want to keep that tradition going in my kids lives.

Head on over to Hostess with the Mostess HERE to see our feature and what I had to say about the party



While trying to keep the party a little budget friendly Kiira and I went to Lowes to collect tons of paint chips to make this geometric garland. We cut out all different shape and sizes, then I used my sewing machine to sew them together. It was pretty easy.



We also glued paint sticks together with wood glue then used different colored paints and masking tape to paint the triangles on the paint sticks. Kiira did this project. She is just way better at masking things off and painting then I am. Also Kiira designed the perfect geometric paper goods for Hayley’s party.


A Huge thank you to everyone that helped make this possible for our little girl! It was such a special day!

It was just yesterday when I remembered my water broke as soon as I was going to lay down to take a nap. But my little girl had other plans. She came 2 weeks early and was a feisty little girl as soon as she came out and still is. I love it though! We have been having so much fun lately with all her talking and singing songs all the time in the car.

Hayley girl I am so thankful that God chose me to be your mommy. You amaze me every day with your knowledge, humor and silliness. Your daddy and I love you SO MUCH! Can’t imagine our lives without you. You are such a joy. We can’t wait to see what God has for you in your life of being 2 years old. We are soaking up these times. May you always keep your amazing laughter for everything.

Happy Birthday to my little 2 year old girl.


Thank you to Emily Young Photography for capturing this perfect photo of our girl. Her true happy place at the beach running through the water.



Well, I am back home and back to life as usual. Back to HOT weather, which in all honesty I am so ready for fall weather. The crisp cool air coming through my open doors in my house. Really does help me because it makes my house feel a little bit bigger and trust me if you see my house thats a huge PLUS. As of right now we are barley living in about 400 square feet. But more on that later.

Right now I have to show you such an amazing and super fun wedding. I was thinking as I photographed the reception,”This would be an epic wedding to attend!” A Great, I mean Great DJ who knows how to work the crowd and get you on the dance floor!

2nd shooting with Lydia Messenger is pretty amazing. She knows how to WORK IT! You have to check her out because she got it people! So head on over to her blog HERE


Jordan and Stephanies first dance was a smiles. Perfection.


So I love a good bouquet toss. Being a 2nd photographer I love that I get to put my focus on the crowd. You never know how they are going to react!


Can’t thank you enough Lydia for having me work with you on such a fun wedding!


These last few years I have had the privlage of 2nd shooting with such amazing people. I love being a 2nd photographer. You get a chance to see how other people work with their clients, photograph in a way you usually don’t being the main photographer and building new friendships with people. I have so many weddings to share with you all. Just thought I would start with a little diy wedding in Carpinteria.

I worked with such a lovely photographer named Karen Barnes.  Make sure you head over to her site to check out all her beautiful work.

Here is a little taste of this lovely wedding.



I couldn’t get enough of this beautiful little flower girl with her baby’s breath flower crown. I mean look at her baby blues.


I loved seeing all the succulents incorporated in the wedding. They really do bring such a uniqueness to the wedding day.


Thank you Karen for having me work with you on such a fun, relaxed day.
