I love when my couples get a little bit silly at their engagement sessions. And when you add in a few kids and their dog to this engagement session...well, you'll have to hop over to the blog and see how silly Jen and Matt got! #linkinprofile

Maranda & CJ's downtown Coeur d'Alene engagment session is on the blog today!! Catching up on blogging from last summer has me anxiously dreaming of summer, and being able to spend the evening out at the lake again. What part of summer are you looking forward to the most?
TGIF. I loved doing my fall family sessions in October last year. It wasn't as cold and the leaves were amazing. I blogged a few of my favorites today. I'm thinking of doing a day of mini sessions this spring...anyone interested? Comment below and let me know!
Robyn at @redletterevent had me do some head shots for her last summer, and as I'm working on getting my website together, I've realized I need to update mine as well. When did you last have your head shots taken?
I've been slowly, during nap times and in the evenings, going through photos from the last year, getting ready to update my portfolio, website, and branding. This cute moment between a mama and her little girl made me wonder what N will be like at that age.
I have so much stuff I want to blog, including this sweet family session I did for @alyssa_bellejournee in October, but maternity leave + new website = no blogging right now.
Tell me I'm not the only one with an epic to do list right now!
There's snow place like #MtSpokane for a winter engagement session! I'm currently booking weddings for 2017 and early 2018. All my Spokane area wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session, contact me for more information! 💍🎉❤️
With all this snow we've been having, I had to share this photo from Malain & Lucas's snowy engagement session last year. I'm a bit bummed that my maternity leave is keeping me from shooting in the snow, but I'm also trying to soak up every sweet moment I can with my little girl. I've got a couple projects I've been thinking over while I'm taking this little break, and I can't wait to share them with you in a few short weeks... if I ever get a chance to work on them. 😂👶😴 What is your favorite part of winter?
I shared one of Robyn's @redletterevent headshots last week, but I also took some glamour shots of her beautiful dog, @snickersbruns. Not something I always do, but if you have a pet, I'd love to have them along and photograph them too...although warn me first if your pet is of the reptile variety!
You can see a couple of Robyn's and Snickerdoodle's photos #ontheblog today!
Since @dustinmain had already scheduled his Lasik surgery when we did his session, we took a couple shots without his glasses too. The whole time I've known him, he's had glasses, so it's strange for me to see him without them!
You can see a few more of my #WDS portraits on the blog right now.
In August, I flew down to Portland to do some headshots for a few people attending #WDS . I've attended in the past, and WDS was the reason I finally felt ready to take the leap from thinking about being a photographer to actually doing this as my job. It's not easy, and I - of course - ended up in Portland on possibly the only days of the year where it was hotter there than in Spokane. In the 36 hours I was in town, I walked nearly 11 miles, I believe. But I was able to photograph some beautiful people, including Miss Amy, who used to be a Portland resident and now lives ALL THE WAY IN NYC. Waaaah.
You can see more from Amy's session (and a few others) #ontheblog today.
Your headshots should be professional, but they should also reflect your personality. Dropping a few sessions on the blog tomorrow, and I love this relaxed (distracted by sushi?) photo of @dustinmain, who is now glasses-less.
Robyn at @redletterevent wanted to update her head shots for her website this summer, so I went over to Coeur d'Alene and we did that. Updated head shots are super important for small business owners, because oftentimes, the photo is the first thing our potential clients see from us - even before they get a chance to read your carefully crafted about me - and it should reflect the you that is on brand.
Need to update your head shots? Contact me today for details and to book your headshot session. [makeup by @makeupbyevelynmauro]
Saturday is the first day of my fall mini sessions! If you've thought about getting photos done before the holidays, you need to jump on this deal. I've still got a little bit of space left. Drop me a DM or a comment with your email address, and I'll send you the details.
Yesterday I showed off a photo of Dan's tattoo, and today, I wanted to showcase one of the quick headshots we did. Dan asked me to photograph him quickly while he was in town, and we shoot around the neighborhood and in my backyard.
Get your headshots updated, my friends. It only takes a little bit of time, and it makes you look sharp.
My friend Dan came to visit me earlier this year and asked me to photograph his tattoo, which says "make your own luck", and was drawn by the incredible artist at @neithersnow. You can see more of the photos on the blog today.
Dan's reason for the tattoo - which is his alone to share - renewed my desire to get one. Do you have a tattoo? What's your tattoo story?
Love this outdoor head shot I did in Portland a couple summers ago. Head shots are such an important part of your business, and they should be done routinely.
We're hosting a day of head shots at a discounted price on April 14th in Spokane, why not carve out some time to get yours done?
I'm also available to shoot head shots outdoors and on location throughout the Pacific Northwest. Contact me today to get your head shots done!
