Well here we are at the cuff of our moving date and I'm feeling sentimental.
I'm sitting here waiting for the future to happen and it's happening before my eyes.
I'm realizing that there's nothing I can do to stop the move from happening.
Another day, another move, another change. I prefer to call it another adventure.
Thank you Spokane for all of life's happenings, I'm thankful for all of it, good, bad, sad, and happy. I've learned so much from it all. The good memories will be cherished forever and the not so pleasant ones will be taken as lessons learned and hopefully will never be made twice.
I shall miss this place so much, especially the good friends that we've been blessed with. It's amazing how many wonderful people came into our lives, made us laugh, cry together with, sitting around the fire with, work, eat, cook, and create memories with. I'm overwhelmingly happy.
Adventures wont' stop here-I have a feeling-change is definitely in the air, oh yes I feel it.
I won't be working in St. Louis in the next couple of years, but I will continue to work on different projects I've been putting on hold and will continue to shoot for fun and also to work on my travel photography-my first love.
You know what moving does for me? It forces me to look at life as the big picture-the ultimate reason why we are alive. The people that God brings into your life and the people that you picked to be in their lives and how it shapes and influence you to be the person that you are today. There's reasons for all of it and many times the reasons are unknown to us.
Moving also helps me to live life to the fullest-because you never know when you may again your favorite neighbors, eat your friend's world famous enchiladas or walk in your neighborhood park.
I will walk away from Spokane with some of life best memories. Upon reflection of it all, I still cannot believe how everything and everyone of our friends came to be... I can only thank God for every detail it all.
May God bless you all richly in all that you do, thank you for reading this far.
And remember, live is really short, live it to the fullest.
Much love always,
Before we leave Spokane, we wanted some photos of us in some of my favorite locations around town so I asked my friend Lacey Browne to help us and she left us incredibly breathless with her amazing talent with her camera- Thank you Lacey!
Hope you enjoy the slideshow below.
Goodbye Spokane-thank you for being so good to us!
Meet Ashley, a 2012 high school senior I photographed recently. Ashley had a really fun style and a great sense of fashion, so our session felt like it was a being photographed for a fashion magazine-which I love! Ashley was beautiful, sweet, and just had the best attitude about life.

We've been talking about doing a family session for sometime-but with the unpredictable weather and busy work schedule, we have had to wait. But oh how perfect the timing of the session was though! The weather cooperated, the time of day, the weather, and most importantly everyone was there and ready and excited for the session. Including little Ellie. Now, let me tell you about photographing little kiddos-most often time, I get their attention for only 10-15 minutes. But with Ellie, wow, was she a delight! She thought I was funny almost the entire shoot and kept giving me the most expressive look-Ever! What a happy little girl she is. Well, it's not hard to understand why she was such a happy little camper when having loving and wonderful parents like Ken and Shaena. Thank you all of you for coming out to play in the sunshine with me and for letting me document your precious family.
Check out Ellie's little face!! I never laughed so hard watching a little child's expresions!
Meet a very handsome young man Pavel- a very kind and intelligent person he at that too! Pavel needs to put together an set of images for his modeling portfolio and we worked together on some ideas for him and these following images are what we came up with. Because Pavel is a very humble person, it was hard at times trying to be model serious, so we ended up laughing through most of the session. Best wishes Pavel with the career!
Meet my senior model Megan. A very sweet, intelligent and beautiful young lady who's my senior rep this year. We had a blast her session!
