Lilac Coronation

First off I must state for the record- I am NOT the official photographer of the Lilac Festival. These pictures are not my normal standard of photography as I was there working within the Lilac Festivals requirements. I attended the Lilac 2012 Dream and Reach for the Stars Coronation at the request of some of the parents of the Fab 14 girls. I was there to document the event for them, as well as cheer on my Creatively Yours Senior Girls- Bethany Hand, Mt. Spokane High School and Linnea Kessler,

The Journey Never Ends

One of the things I love about photography is that the learning never ends.  I love that there is always something new to discover.  It doesn’t always make the old way wrong, or even the new way better.  It just is something new.  One of the ways I continually learn is being on different online forums.  Two that I call home are 4 the Love of Focus and Inside the Locker. Thanks to the women on 4 the Love of Focus I was able to fix one of my favorite pictures of my daughter.  The day we

Let It Snow

The other day I blogged about the G Brothers out in the snow.  Lucky for me they also brought along Gabe’s girlfriend- Mykel!  Mykel is a gorgeous girl and was willing to brave the snow and cold for me. I’ve done maternity and family pictures in the snow, but never a senior.  Lucky for me Mykel along with Gabe and Michael were willing to help me out!  Senior pictures all always so fun and unique, adding in the snow just took them over the top.  When you book your senior session with

Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow

It won’t be long until we’ll all be there with SNOW! One of my all time favorite movies is White Christmas.  I love the scene as Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen are sitting in the Dining Car singing about the snow they are sure to encounter in Vermont. I’ve kind of felt like them this waiting expectantly, excitedly for snow, and nothing had come.  Until this last week that is.  I love doing pictures in the snow.  I’ve done maternity and family

Best Friends Senior Pictures

Best Friends Forever {BFF}

As I’ve been going through 2011’s files I realized that I had totally missed blogging Jennifer’s BFF session that she had this fall with 2 two BFF’s!  You might recognize Jennifer from her senior session she had with me this summer.  We all headed into downtown Spokane to have some fun and capture their time together as seniors in high school.  BFF sessions are always a blast.  It is a great time to document who you are as friends before everyone heads off to college

Best of 2011

I love this time of the year.  Christmas is over; a New Year ready to begin.  Time to reflect on all the that has happened in the year almost done, and ready to tackle a New Year.  I love getting out a new calendar and going through it and marking (yes, I still use a pen and paper version) all the important events, birthdays, and anniversaries to come.  The making new goals, and dreaming of what could be fills me with inspiration and hope.  We’ll talk more about that later. Today is all

Glamorous Senior Portraits

Angelica {Class of 2012}

I had the pleasure working with Angelica the end of October in the middle of our beautiful fall colors.  This was the third time I’ve had the pleasure of working with her family.  In the summer of 2009 I took her families photographs and then in the fall of 2009 I took her brother’s Senior pictures.  Angelica had her makeup professionally done by Shasta Hankins, and once again Shasta did a great job- Angelica looked beautiful!  As I edited her session one phrase kept coming to mind,
