Carter’s 3 Month Session/Deer Park Washington Photographer/Baby Photographer/Love and Honey Photography

Oh my, oh my, oh my, Carter is just the cutest baby ever!  He was full of big grins this day.  I love the image where his mommy is kissing him and he is smiling big about it.  It’s such a sweet moment.  Carter is such a happy baby grinning from ear to ear no matter where I laid him down.  It was absolutely adorable when the kitten decided to join in.  He was curious about Carter and Carter was curious about him.  The kitten gently inspected his feet, since Carter kept wiggling them.  Carter wasn’t sure what was touching his toes back there.  Isn’t it adorable that they have the same color of hair.  I love this little session.  The whole thing makes me smile every time I look at it.

The Tracy Tribe/Spokane Washington Family Photographer/Finch Arboretum/Love and Honey Photography

The Tracy’s, or as they fondly call themselves “The Tracy Tribe,” met me for a family session at Finch Arboretum.  A gorgeous park in Spokane Washington.  I think when we first started everyone was a bit worried about the session, especially mom.  Six kids can be a handful when you are trying to get them to all pose.  I remember the old days of sitting in the studio waiting in line while my own little ones began to fall apart at the seams.  By the time we started the pictures smiles were hard to get.  As photography changes and styles change I’m thankful for the new trend of life style photography.  Kids are happy and show their most natural real smiles when they are playing and free to run.  I love catching these moments.  “How about you guys race to the tree while I take pictures to see who was the fastest.”  It’s so fun to complete an entire session without the kids really ever realizing it was a session.

I have to say for this day the huge old tree was the hero of the day.  Everyone loved it.  Who can resist climbing such an amazing tree.  I can’t even imagine how many children have been in that tree over the hundreds of years it has been alive.  If it could tell stories I would be sure to sit and listen.

On this day they ran, they played, they hugged and I snapped away.  The kids each got to pick their own place to pose as well as the way they wanted to pose.  It was a fun way to get to know each one a little better.  At the end I had them sit together on a blanket and drink bottled pops while I took the last pictures of their family time together.  My hope is that it will be a fun memory for all of them, and pictures they will enjoy and cherish for a life time.

Grandpa Charlie & Grandma Laura’s Day with the Boys/Deer Park Photographer/Love and Honey Photography

Grandpa Charlie and Grandma Laura came to visit the boys for a few days.  All three of their grand babies were in the same place on the same day, which doesn’t happen very often.  It was time to record the moment.  We walked together to my favorite place in the woods.  A little path that winds and meanders through the trees.  The sun is always shining in the perfect spots here.  It is quiet and away from the noise and commotion of the day.  Here in the woods we stopped.  Grandpa and Grandma helped to get the boys all situated in the wagon.  The boys loved being together.  They gave each other hugs having fun in the moment.  Grandpa swooped up his grandson and hugged him tight.  Grandma smiled and held on tight to the little ones.  They laughed as the boys made silly faces and did silly little boy things.  The moment was just theirs.  Smiles radiated from both faces, genuine smiles of joy.  Joy at being close with each other, playing with their three grandsons.  In these moments it doesn’t matter if everyone looks at the camera, if everyone poses just perfectly.  All that matters is they are together.

Sweet Miss Esmerelda

 

Glorious Summer days are the best ones for an outdoor session.  Little Miss Esmerelda was up from Salt Lake City, UT, for a visit, so we took advantage of a gorgeous day and went for a drive.  We drove around Chewelah, Washington, looking for just the right spot to hop out and take pictures.  Before we could find the perfect spot, Esmerelda decided it was nap time.  Ut oh, babies aren’t very good at waking up happy from short naps.  The session started out a little on the grumpy side, but once we went to the creek she became more lively.  This session actually taught me something of great importance, and that is to look at the flower you are sniffing before sniffing it.  I managed to snort a bug up my nose trying to demonstrate how to smell the flowers.  EEEk  I don’t like bugs and I especially don’t like them up my nose!  I’m not sure there is a polite way to blow a bug back out of your nose.  I’m pretty sure I didn’t care at that point.  Once I was rid of the bug, it was back to picture taking time.  This time with no flower sniffing.  Any way enough about my my nose, look at these adorable images of little miss Esmerelda.

Little Mr Robbie/Valley Washington Photographer/Chewelah Washington Photographer

 

Little Mr Robbie’s session was on a beautiful summer day.  The perfect time of year, the grass is green, the trees have leaves, flowers blooming and the sunshine warm on our skin.  Nothing is more fun than following a toddler around a beautiful yard capturing the joy of living.  I loved the cape his momma brought for the session.  Robbie loved it too.  I was also amazed at how sweet and gentle his dog was with him.  The dog supervised the whole session, letting Robbie crawl all over him, giving dog kisses when ever possible.  As I post this session I wish I were there right now enjoying the warm sunshine, listening to toddler giggles and smelling flowers.32293481422       23      10

Megan’s 2!! Session/Chewelah Child Photographer/Loon Lake Child Photographer/ Loon Lake Washington

Sweet little Megan Joy came to my home for a birthday session.  As a normal two year old she didn’t really want to pose, but she did want to play.  We had fun playing with balloons and looking out the sliding glass door.  Her brother even helped her a bit.  Megan’s favorite thing to do was hug her momma.  She is such a sweetie.  _MG_9835 _MG_0074 copy _MG_9758 copy _MG_9841 copy _MG_9852 copy _MG_0008 copy
