Oh, February. I can’t tell you how many times I looked up plane tickets to warm places like Hawaii or Palm Springs. Luckily for H, they were all too expensive. Otherwise, he would have come from work one day to find that I had taken N to someplace much warmer and with far less snow! :) Last winter was so much easier to handle, because we escaped to Barbados in December. I’m already thinking we need to head to Hawaii next winter. So, if you’ve been there, will you give me your tips??? We’ve never been! [Yes, I know it’s crazy that I’ve been all over the world but never to Hawaii. That’s life!]

In late January, I caved and bought N one of the first – and only – super girly things she has. And uh, it doesn’t even even fit anymore, but the cute little flowers were adorable. Also, it snowed a lot. To the point where I wanted to cry every time it snowed. That view is a lot different now, thankfully!

A selfie with my cutie at her two month appointment, and a snap from her two month photos. It’s crazy to me to take her monthly photos on the same quilt, and see how she’s growing! I know that she’s getting bigger, but when I look at these photos from a few weeks ago, I can’t believe how much bigger she is already!!

N got her first real set of shots at her two month appointment, and boy, was it rough. First, I’m super lucky that N is a generally really happy go-lucky kid. She’s stubborn and goes from happy to hangry in a hot second, but she’s generally pretty awesome. So, the amount of fussiness after her two month shots nearly broke my heart. We snuggled all day long, and after a day or two, she was back to her usual self. I’m not looking forward to her next appointment, because I know she’ll get more shots! :(

N took her first trip to Seattle, which included lots of snuggles with family, learning to use a ring sling, and a 2nd birthday party. She was a total champ and napped like a pro in the car. Since then, we’ve flown to Portland and driven down the Tri Cities. Have baby, will travel! :) When we were over in Coeur d’Alene at Mother’s Haven to take some photos last month, we swung up to Paragon Brewery for lunch. The food was great, and H really liked his beer. N slept through most of it while we took turns snuggling her and eating.

My first shoot back from maternity leave (while still kind of on leave, haha) was to help my friend Amy, over at Inland Mama, announce her third baby. I am impressed by her tandem wearing, but tandem wearing while pregnant?! #momgoals

Every February for the past three years, a friend of mine has hosted a private Facebook group where we wear red lipstick all month long. I wasn’t as active as I have been in years past, but I found a couple new shades. I’ve found that red lips automatically make you look put together. No one realizes that you’re not wearing any other makeup if you’ve got a red lip.

I’m rounding out my first week back from maternity leave with a smattering of photos from my fall mini sessions. Back in October, I hosted a few days of mini sessions, and got to photograph a combination of old and new clients. I loved working with Alyssa, at Belle Journee Events, to put together a sweet setup for a couple of the dates, and I am already dreaming up what we’ll do for this year’s sessions!

At this point, I’m only planning to offer my mini sessions in the fall for 2017, but if there’s enough interest in spring minis, I may offer one day this spring. Spots do fill pretty quickly for the fall sessions, so if you’re interested in getting on the list for 2017 sessions, sign up here. I’ll send you info about mini and portrait sessions – and no spam, I promise.

Thank you again to everyone who came out and braved our unpredictable October weather last fall for sessions! I loved meeting new clients and catching up with my repeat clients, and I hope you had as wonderful a time as I did!!

From the moment I got Misha’s first email, I knew I was going to like this sweet couple! When we started chatting even more, and I learned that they used to live down the street, but now live out of state. You may remember that we did their South Perry engagement session, just days after the Windstorm hit. It was fun for them to see how much the neighborhood had changed since they moved a few years ago. It was also the first time we got to meet in person, but after countless emails and a few phone calls, I knew we were going to get along fantastically.

Planning a June wedding in Spokane is usually pretty easy, but the weather this year was unpredictable. Two weeks before, I was a second shooter for a wedding and it was in the 90s, but the weekend of Misha & Tony’s downtown Spokane wedding was filled with storm clouds and a more than a little bit chillier. Misha and Tony got ready at the The Historic Davenport Hotel, where we did their first look, and we wandered around downtown Spokane a bit for some wedding party portraits, before heading over to Barrister Winery. Luckily, the rain stopped in time for their outdoor ceremony, which was absolutely perfect. The sun came out briefly during their reception, and we snuck out for a few minutes to grab some portraits outside after dinner, and then they partied the night away on the dance floor.

Misha & Tony, thank you so much for trusting me with your wedding photos! I feel so lucky to have met you and your beautiful family and friends!!

Hi, I’m Emily!

Based in Spokane, I travel throughout the Pacific Northwest for weddings, portraits, private events, and more. You'll usually find me with a bag of Haribo gummy bears or a chai tea in hand. Thought lately, this little one has kept my hands pretty full....see full bio.
