Noah’s Senior Session/Colville Washington/Senior Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

The oldest story in the world.  One day you’re seventeen and planning for someday, and then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today, and that someday is yesterday and this is your life.        – Nathan Scott

The Lambo Family Session/Manito Park, Spokane, Washington/Family Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

It was a beautiful day for a session in the park.  The Lambo family met me at Manito Park.  The park is gorgeous this time of year.  Little love was a little sleepy, and only stayed awake for half of the session.  Isn’t she a doll baby?!  Such a sweet heart.  Mommy and Daddy are definitely in love with her!  I loved getting to see them all again.  Last time it was for a newborn session.

The Strassenberg Fall Family Session/Deer Park Washington/Family Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

Family is a beautiful thing.  A group of people who live together. Journeying through this amazing life.  Watching over each other. Growing together as they learn and discover.  Keeping watch over each other, encouraging each other and growing more and more in love as the days pass.  It’s a beautiful thing.

The Kelso Family Session/Black Bay Park, Post Falls, Idaho/Family Photographer/Love & Honey Photography

I had never been to Black Bay Park until the day of the Kelso’s session.  It was a beautiful place to take pictures of a beautiful family.  As I look at the images from the day a quote from, Walt Whitman comes to mind. “We were together. I forget the rest.”  All that really matters in life as a family, we were together.

Jay & Wendy’s Wedding Day/Lavender Manor/Deer Park Washington/Love & Honey Photography

On a beautiful day in September, Jay and Wendy said, “I do”.  Their wedding was held at the Lavender Manor in, Deer Park, Washington.  The smoke rolled in that day from forest fires to the North and East of Washington.  It gave the images an almost antique look.  Despite the smoke the bride and groom wore beautiful smiles all day long.  Their’s was a day of happiness and laughter.  It was the best day ever!  A beautiful wedding day dream come true.

A Visit With the Nicholas Boys/Cheyenne Wyoming/Love & Honey Photography

As soon as I saw you I knew a grand adventure was about to happen.          -Pooh

It is always a grand adventure visiting the Cheyenne Nicholas family.  Last time I had to be Balto and hide under the table in my cave with Jackson and Carter, who were also Balto.  This time I was the troll and Jackson was the billy goat gruff.  That involved me saying he couldn’t cross the bridge.  He then would head butt me in the leg and I would dramatically fall to the ground. Carter just randomly yells, SKUNK GHOST! Which is followed by lots of running from imaginary stinky Skunk Ghosts.  These boys think up the most entertaining games.

Grandpa got in on it sometimes too.  He also had fun reading to the boys.  The boys loved him to pieces big beard and all, especially when he brought home dried fruit to share.  Mom let us make a big mess in the kitchen when we made cookies.  She also let the boys suck on these huge suckers just so Grandma could get them to hold still for a few minutes.

I love visiting Jarred and Christina and their boys.  There is never a dull moment, and life is full of hugs and sticky fingers and dirt and wrestling and creative games to play.  I can’t wait for Thanksgiving when I get to have all of my grand babies in one place.  Oh the fun we will have pretending then.
