The Beautiful You Project/Love & Honey Photography/Valley, WA

This project is close to my heart.  I was having a rough winter.  Working through the feelings that come with loss, sickness, grief.  I was feeling so low.  I felt like God put on my heart to reach out to other women and to lift them up.  To create a session where I could help them see how beautiful they are.  How worthwhile they are.  The song Beautiful, by Mercy Me, really fit with what I wanted to say and express.  I reached out to my photography followers to ask if anyone would want to join me for this project.  I had the perfect volunteers.  Women who I love and respect and who I really enjoyed hanging out with for an evening of photography and gabbing and laughter.  I love all of these ladies so much.  Each one is making it through life in their own way.  Each one has things they are excited for and looking forward to.  Things they are working on.  I hope you love this project to.  I hope it speaks to your heart.  You are beautiful, you are treasured, you are loved!

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

Elinor’s Mommy and Me Session/Mother’s Day Session/Loon Lake Washington/Love and Honey Photography

This little cutie is my granddaughter.  She is sooo adorable.  Catching her and mommy and all of the fun expressions in this session is my absolute favorite thing.  Time flies by and Elinor will only be this little for a short while.  Pretty soon she is going to be a big sister.  Her little brother is growing bigger and bigger in mommy’s tummy.  Aren’t these two so cute!  Grammy thinks so!

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 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.

Chris & Jessica’s Gender Reveal/ It’s a Girl!/Cheyenne Wyoming/Love & Honey Photography

Little girl number 2 is coming to this sweet family soon!  Jessica chose to not find out if she was having a girl or a boy at her ultrasound.  Instead she had the doctor put it in an envelope.  Her friend ordered the confetti cannons, and they all met in the park for a little gender reveal party.  On the count of 3 they twisted the cannons and poof out flew pink and white confetti everywhere (all biodegradable of course). It’s a girl!!!  Afterwards everyone had hot apple cider and cookies.  It was such a cute party.  Congratulations Chris and Jessica!!!

The Beusan Wedding/Coeur d’Alene Idaho Wedding Photographer/Love and Honey Photography

Rob and Robbin’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous.  I was the second shooter this day for Simplicity by Megan Wright.  Megan is one of my very best friends, so shooting a wedding with her is always a great day.  I was impressed with all of Robbin’s choices for the day.  I hadn’t met her before this day, but everywhere I looked there was one more thing to ooh and aw over.  The day was just filled with beauty.  I loved the dress she chose, the flowers, the decorations, every little detail.  I enjoyed seeing how Rob and Robbin interacted, they were so in love.  Rob gave her the sweetest looks through out the day.  Love filled the air. The day was perfect, and I spent it with my best friend shooting, talking, laughing, and enjoying a gorgeous wedding.
