The McCrea’s Family Session/Loon Lake Washington/Family Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

The warm evening light falling down from the shoulder of the mountain covered them as they played on the little dirt road.  Together is where they are meant to be.  Together through the ups together through the downs.  A cord of 3 cannot be broken.  Sometimes they are silly together, sometimes they are thoughtful together, sometimes they laugh together and sometimes they all yell at the same time.  They are family.  Not perfect, not imperfect, not defined by that, but defined by their love for each other.  Their up and down and all around crazy days and laughing days and crabby days and regular days, that kind of love.  The kind that says lets be together, the 3 of us, because for us together is perfect.

Gideon’s Newborn Session/Newborn Photographer/Spokane Washington Newborn Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

If you were a boat, my darling
A boat, my darling
I’d be the wind at your back
If you were afraid, my darling
Afraid, my darling
I’d be the courage you lack

If you were a bird, then I’d be a tree
And you would come home, my darling, to me
If you were asleep, then I’d be a dream
Wherever you are, that’s where my heart will be

JJ Heller, The Boat Song

{Family}/A Day at the Park/Spokane Washington/Spokane Washington Photographer/Love and Honey Photography

We hold so many mem’ries in our hearts
So close even if we are far apart
Standing on the edge of new beginnings
I can’t wait to see just what you’ll do
And every time I think of you
You make me laugh a little louder
You make me dream a little bigger
My life is so much sweeter
‘Cause you make me
Better than I would have been without you
Better than I’ve ever been before
I treasure every moment we’re together     – JJ Heller, Better

Tyson’s 9 month Tub Session/Spokane Washington Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

Rub a dub dub, my 4th grand baby session in this tub!  And who do you think he be?  Tyson James, my snuggly wuggly little grand baby.  Oh how I love this little man.  He is so quick to smile.  His little eyes shine with a sweet sensitivity that says, I have a really really big heart.  He gives the snuggliest hugs, but he is also growing into a big boy.  He is following two big brothers as fast as he can.  At this session he was crawling like a champ trying to keep up with everyone.  Mommy just called me today and told me Tyson is off to the races, he has taken his first steps!  I can’t wait to see for myself.  He is coming to visit me soon.  He and his brothers are 3 of my very favorite people on planet earth.  Be still my Grammy heart, just look at all the cuteness and all of the bubbles!

A Woodsy Little Get Together/Spokane Washington Child Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

Let me tell you now, you will be best friends, cousins, adventurers.  You will follow trails, climb rocks and jump in lakes.  You will laugh and giggle and say silly things to each other.  You will have food fights and water fights and maybe even some real fights.  You will say some sorries, but it will be worth it.  You will love each other, laugh together, find bugs under rocks, fight with stick swords and yell silly words at the top of your lungs together.  You are cousins, and these are the things that cousins do.  Cousins are the best friends God gives you, and God gives the best gifts of all.

I love you, so much all of you little cuties!  I can’t wait to take pictures, to watch you, maybe to even conspire with you on some of these silly adventures.  I love you sooo much!

Love Grammy Debbie

Elinor’s 1st Birthday!!!/Spokane Washington Child Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

This little peanut is one of my favorite people on planet earth, and she is already one!  Little Miss, as her family sometimes calls her is beginning to explore her world around her.  She is walking and getting into baby mischief as much as possible.  She loves it when her Daddy chases her up the stairs in their house.  In fact she will call over the rail to him to make sure he notices where she is.  She loves reading books with Mommy any time and all the time.  Mommy has begun to teach her the animal sounds, and so far she likes the sound the sheep makes the best.  Every animal says baaaaah, then she will say the other sound.  She loves to play in the sprinkler on her patio.  Water is a favorite right now.  As you can see here she loves the frosting more than the cake.  She also really felt she should use a fork, as food should be eaten with utensils.  Oh how I love this little munchkin.  Miss Ellie B as I like to call her.  I am her Grammy Debbie, and I am so excited for the mischief we will get into together!  Happy Birthday Elinor!!!

A Family Day at the Park/Spokane Washington/Spokane Family Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

Bryn lives in Alaska, but loves to come down with the littles to visit her family.  This time Grandpa and Grandma and Bryn’s brother all met with us at the park for family pictures.  The littles loved playing and running.  Sissy is just beginning to walk, and brother showed us how fast he can run.  He also had a jumping contest with his uncle and played with Grandpa.  Grandma and sissy played, and mommy took turns with the two littles playing and exploring.  It was a happy little moment carved out in time.

Family is a beautiful thing to have, and the sweetness is even stronger when the visits are far between.
