Benner Family - Fall 2012

You always remember your first friend when you move somewhere new. We've been in Spokane, WA, almost three years now and I am so beyond blessed to have my first friend here as one of my besties. 

We've done a few photoshoots now, but this one is extra special as it is Landon's 1 year pics and Addison's 4 year pics (she and my Addison are little buds {bonus}). 

We were blessed by perfect Fall weather at the Finch Arboretum and the whole family was able to be there. 

Thank you Adrienne, for our sweet friendship. You are so real, easy-going, and a true gem.

Diego Kona Batac - Born August 27, 2012

Our dear friends, Frank and Dawn Batac,
brought their first child into the world on August 27th, 2012.
He is such a sweet, precious little baby boy.
Here are a few images from our photoshoot yesterday.

Thank you for giving me the honor of taking your pictures
during your pregnancy and now of your sweet little blessing.
He makes my heart twinkle. Love you, Dawn!

The Daddy Chain

When trying to figure out the best way to help my 2 1/2 year old daughter understand the concept of time and the many days daddy would be gone while on his deployment, I remembered back to when I was child and what it was I would do to count-down the days to when something exciting would happen; we call it "The Daddy Chain"

There is a link on the chain for every day my husband is gone, and every night before bed we take a link off The Daddy Chain and Addie throws it away. It is always something to look forward to at night, and it is such a feeling of relief and accomplishment, to everyday take off a link and know we made it through that day and we are just one day closer to when we will all be together again.

Every night, as Addie walks to the trash can to throw away that day's chain, she says the same thing, "Yay, Daddy is coming home!"

We are more than half-way done with the deployment and everyday the chain gets shorter and shorter, such an amazing feeling.

The Dixon's - Maternity

We love Spokane, the city is lovely, the people are wonderful, and at the current moment it seems that more than half the population is pregnant!

In our short time in Spokane, we have had the honor of befriending a lovely couple, Mike & Evah Dixon. The Dixon's, like most the population, are pregnant. Evah is at the point, she is very ready to not be pregnant any longer. In an attempt to help make these last few weeks a little more enjoyable before baby Natalie is born, we all got together and did a maternity photo shoot. It was the most fun I've had taking pictures of people. They are so cute and in love, Mike is the ultimate joke-ster, as you can see from the many silly images, and they were BOTH so willing to do anything to make the shoot fun and even a tad bit risque.

Check back soon for newborn pictures of Miss Natalie.
