Melissa’s Head Shots – Branding Session // Spokane Head Shot Photography

Recently I’ve started working with more small businesses and entrepreneurs, and y’all, I really love it! There is something so great about being able to help another person make their business or dreams come true by creating beautiful photos for them. Melissa emailed me last summer (don’t these beautiful blooms have you dreaming of summer? Gosh, I can’t wait!) about doing some head shots because she was writing a book, and she needed a bio photo for the book and for all her launches. We met up for a quick little head shot session, and she now has a bunch of beautiful, natural, photos to use for her branding. Branding and head shot sessions can be as little as 20 minutes, or we can work for a full day.

Oh, and Melissa’s book, Who Will Love Me? on available on Amazon.

Jamie + Melissa – Hill’s Resort Wedding // Priest Lake North Idaho Photographer

Anyone remember Jamie + Melissa‘s gorgeous wedding up at Priest Lake from last spring? Gosh, it was such an absolutely perfect day, and I’ve been thinking ever since last May about what to say for this post.

Jamie + Melissa reached out to me long distance from Florida. They are both in the Navy, but wanted to get married in Idaho, where Melissa is from. We sent a lot of emails back and forth over the months, and chatted a couple times on Skype (with most of our pets making appearances) before I drove up to Priest Lake for their wedding. We were prepared for all sorts of weather, but ended up with the most gorgeous spring day. From the moment of their sweet and emotional first look, to the beautiful vows and the epic dance party, this wedding was one for the books. Jamie + Melissa had family and friends come from all over, and from all different parts of their lives. I think one of the things I love most about weddings is that you finally get to have all the people you love in your lives together. And, for Melissa and Jamie, they got to bring them all to Priest Lake and Hill’s Resort, which made the day even more sweet for them.

Thank you two for having me up at Priest Lake for your wedding! It was a joy to meet you both in person, to meet your wonderful families, and all your friends!! Check out all the wonderful vendors at the end of the post!

Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii – Traveling with a Toddler // Personal Post

I know how lucky we are to travel as much as we do. We’ve been able to make decisions that have helped us pay down debt, and we make choices every single day that allow us to travel fairly regularly. A lot of our travel is to visit family, or is tagged on to a work trip for one of us, but we try to get in one good vacation each year. A few years ago, we realized that the best way to survive the long, dark, and cold winters in Spokane was to get away for a warm weather break. So, when I was pregnant with little miss and we knew we wouldn’t be going anywhere that winter (and it was a rough, rough, winter), H promised me we would finally go to Hawaii the next winter.

Maui was a dream, you guys. I’ve traveled all over and been to tropical islands before, but Maui is like living on a different planet. It was the most beautiful kind of place, and I left a little piece of my heart there. That said, it wasn’t the easiest vacation by any means. N was recently mobile, is a 100% winter baby who prefers snow and cold weather to hot weather and sand, and we made some key mistakes. Oh, and it rained half the time we were there. It was weird. But these photos don’t show that.

Trip notes:

— We stayed near baby beach in Lahaina and really loved it. We walked into town a couple times and also drove in once or twice as well.

— Places we loved: Down the Hatch, Frida’s Mexican, Maui Brewing Company, the Pride of Maui Snorkeling Tour, the Maui Ocean Center.

— Baby beach was shallow and perfect for littles, but a little tame for our more adventurous swimmers. It’s nice and flat, which I loved. 100% would go back there, and there’s a decent amount of parking by it too.

— Please wear reef safe sunscreen anytime you’re in the ocean. Save the fishes.
