This post doesn’t need many words. The McMannis sisters have enough cuteness to last you for days, so I’ll let the photos do the talking. I will say that their mom and dad were some of my very first clients (thanks for having faith in me!). I shot their wedding at Priest Lake back in 2009 and it’s been amazing to watch their family grow.

Easily one of the best parts of my job is getting to watch clients go through the various stages of life and I always feel incredibly honored to be asked to capture these new chapters. Three years ago I had the opportunity to shoot Stephanie and Joe’s maternity session, when they were expecting their first baby. Now, they have two adorable little girls, Audrey and June. They recently moved back to Washington and I was so excited to catch up with this wonderful family of four. It’s not hard to see why Audrey and June made my job easy…quite possibly the cutest sister duo I’ve ever seen!

I know I’ve said this before, but these two make me smile. A lot. I might be biased because Sophia and Drew are my niece and nephew, but still. When my sister-in-law Susan asked to set up a session while I was back in Spokane, I was delighted. While I’ve been snapping shots of these two since they were born, it was really fun to take some more “official” photos. I honestly can’t imagine what it must feel like to have kids of your own, because I love all my nieces and nephew SO much (unfortunately for Drew, he is surround by a gaggle of girl cousins!) and it makes me sad that I don’t get to see them more often. I just hope they come and visit their Aunt Kathryn in New York soon!

Despite the gloriously warm temperatures in New York right now and the constant sunlight streaming in my window, I’m hunkered down editing all of my sessions from the past few weeks. I can’t wait to start posting some of the images! However, I couldn’t resist sharing a little sneak peek of Sophia and Drew’s session. I’ve found myself continually going back to the images from their session and always end up with a smile on my face. I mean, how you could not smile when looking at these two? They make my heart melt.

Earlier this year I photographed Megan and Bob’s wedding, so I was thrilled when they called me a few weeks ago to let me know that Jamison had arrived and that they wanted me to photograph their baby girl. It’s so wonderful to continue to be a part of such big moments in my client’s lives!

When I showed up for Jamison’s newborn session, my heart just about melted. I had never seen such a tiny, more precious little girl! Jamison was born several weeks early and weighed only 5lbs. 3oz. at birth. But she did so well during our session, even gracing us with a few little smiles and letting us put her in her dad’s firefighter helmet!

Megan and Bob, congrats on your beautiful baby girl! She’s lucky to have such wonderful parents!

Welcome to the world, Jamison Josephine!

Meet Baby Jamison Josephine. She might be the cutest baby girl I’ve ever met! I only just shot her newborn session yesterday, but I couldn’t resist sharing a sneak peek of this tiny 5lb. 10oz. princess. More to come soon!

Newborn sessions are still fairly new for me. But from the several sessions I have done, I know they have a completely different feel and rhythm than my other shoots. While I absolutely love the fast paced tempo of weddings and the liveliness of photographing children, newborn sessions happen at their own pace. There is no timeline, no enforced structure and lots of time to chat with the parents between nursing and diaper changes. I often get to hear about the birth stories (which always provides reinforcement that I’m not yet ready for children of my own!) and about the baby’s first days at home. Despite the lack of sleep and other adjustments parents are facing in these first few weeks at home, this time really does seem incredibly special.

This was most definitely the case with first-time parents Maru and Jonathan, who are simply overjoyed with their little Diego. I don’t think the smile on Maru’s face disappeared once during my time there. The love they feel for this baby was completely intoxicating and by the time our session was over and Diego was happily swaddled and in his mother’s arms, I wanted to pack him up in my camera bag.

Maru and Jonathan, thank you for inviting me into your home to capture such a special time in your life. Diego is so lucky to have such wonderful parents!

Meet Baby Diego…the adorable little guy I had the pleasure of photographing this weekend! I’ve seen my share of babies, but this little one was something special. Many more photos from his newborn session coming soon!

Isn’t he the cutest?!

Kylee and Hannah may quite possibly be the two children that have been in front of my lens the most. Their mom, Whitney, is one of my closest friends and for years I have been taking their photos around the holidays. It has been wonderful watching these little girls grow up. Every time I see them, I’m amazed at how much they have grown. For as long as I can remember, it has always been “Whitney and the girls,” but now they are lucky enough to have a little baby brother, Hudson (and hopefully a new photography subject for me!).

While I was in Spokane last month, I was able to make it out to Whitney’s lovely house and property outside of the city. It has become tradition to start our session at her uncle’s old barn, which has a gorgeous, faded door that I’m in love with. We spent some time wandering around the property and down by the river before heading over to her family’s horse stable. The girls had a blast playing in the hay, while little Hudson was content sleeping in Whitney’s arms.

Each time I drive away from spending time with Whitney, I’m always overcome by her immense optimism and unwavering “can do” attitude. Despite life’s ups and downs, this girl always has a smile on her face. And for that, I am always in deep admiration of her.

My time with Whitney, Kylee and Hannah is always special (although far too infrequent!). I am looking forward to watching Hudson grow up as I’ve done—and will continue to do—with his big sisters. I can only hope that this little family has many years still to come in front of my camera.

Meet the wonderful Dawson Family! I had a blast photographing Jeremy, Alana, Charlotte and Lily…they are an incredibly fun loving and happy family. Alana and I had exchanged many emails before our session and she had told me all about her two daughters and husband. By the time we actually met, I felt like I already knew them which is always a great way to start a family session! Jeremy is in the Navy and Alana is a dedicated wife and mother to their two little girls, which I know isn’t an easy job (I’ve heard many Navy wife stories from Christina!). I have so much respect for what they both do. Three year old Charlotte was very eager to start taking photos and was a total ham in front of the camera. Little Lily was completely content watching her older sister play…she is such a cutie!

Jeremy and Alana, you have such a beautiful family. Thanks for letting me capture this moment in your lives! Enjoy!
