Meet the Harris family. They recently welcomed their son into the world, and I had the joy of documenting their Newborn lifestyle photography session, in Spokane Valley. There’s nothing quite like the first few days home with a new baby; as wild as this time may feel, the days are long, but the years are […]


In support of World Breastfeeding Week, and the PBAP, some local Spokane mamas joined me for a group breastfeeding portrait. After the incredible response from last year, I invited these mamas to share their stories. Thank you again to each of you for participating; it’s truly an honour to share your portraits, and your stories. […]


  • These are GORGEOUS photos. And I loved reading each mother’s breast feeding journey. I struggled with breastfeeding my own daughter and only ended up doing it for one month because she was never able to really latch on properly (even with professional help), I’m grateful that I was able to at least give her breast milk for the first four weeks of her life. :)ReplyCancel

On the morning of this wonderful homebirth, I received a text saying mama’s labor had started, and then slowed down again, so everyone was heading home to give her some time and space (even dad headed out to work), and we all planned to return when things picked up again. A few hours later, I […]


  • What a fast delivery! I have had a couple moms that had very short labors, but none so quick in progression that a dad has missed. So good that she has those precious images from right after birth!ReplyCancel

You might recognize this beautiful family from their recent maternity photos. They also invited me to document their Fresh Baby session at Sacred Heart hospital, in Spokane, WA.
