Michael & Rachael’s Family Session/Valley, Washington/ Family Photographer/ Love & Honey Photography

He loves her, she love him and they love little Ashton.  On a beautiful evening in a gorgeous field we caught their hearts together.  One of Rachael’s favorite songs puts it perfectly.  In the words of Lee Brice, “Be best friends, tell the truth, and overuse I love you.  Go to work, do your best, don’t outsmart your common sense.  Never let your prayin’ knees get lazy, and love like crazy.”

Best Friends/Spokane Washington/ Spokane Washington Photographer/ Love and Honey Photography

These two crack me up.  This is my daughter Mahala and her best friend since birth, Bethany.  This started out to be an 8th grade graduation session for Bethany, but she wanted to bring Mahala along.  Well guess what, it turned into a best friends session.  These two laughed and giggled and laughed some more.  They had so much fun together.  I loved following them through the park letting them come up with ideas, and coming up with some of my own.  It’s hard to believe they are so grown up now, time flies by so fast. I loved seeing them feel pretty in their dresses.  Finding their favorite rose bushes to pose by.  At the end we brought out the pop bottles and straws, more giggling followed.  I was just noticing a really cool tree they could climb when all of the sudden they started wading out in the creek.  I watched thinking they were coming back, nope, I was wrong.  They ended up jumping in and swimming.  I guess that was the signal that the session was over.  Luckily it was the perfect day for swimming.  I sat and relaxed while they swam.  I’m pretty sure I can count this as a successful session, well at least a very fun one.

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.

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
