Zenna in the Leaves

There’s this tree, actually I think it’s two trees, that I drive by every morning on my way to take Zenna to school. I drove by it everyday last year to pick up my nephew from school. It stands alone in a big field on the side of a playground for a preschool. It drops the biggest piles of leaves in a perfect circle all around it. This year I’ve been watching it. Just waiting for the perfect time to get some pictures of somebody playing in those leaves. That day was last Tuesday…We decided to do a spur of the moment shoot of Zenna in these leaves at golden hour.

Zenna sure had fun running, jumping and playing in the leaves! Just look at the smile plastered on her face as she’s about to dive into this pile of leaves at almost warp speed!

We just love Autumn leaves! Move over Christmas, because if you ask us, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year!

Brad & Zenna

Bradly is our nephew and right now he lives in California, but he has also lived in Hawaii, Japan, and Germany. (Jenny here!) My older brother is in the Air Force. :) So when he can, he comes to Spokane for the summer to visit our family. My mom asked for some updated pictures of Bradley and Zenna together, so I packed them up and headed to the park for a fun little session with these adorable Cousins!

We started at the playground to let them run around and have a little fun!

Then we moved over the park and got some great shots of them in front of the Mirabeau waterfall and the Spokane River. These sure are some good looking kids if I do say so myself. ;) Here are some of our favorite shots from the session. We hope you love them as much as we do!

Cute Lil' Bad Ass

Sometimes we just want to shoot. Sometimes it's your weekend and you get a wild hair and decide to have a little fun. That's how sessions like these happen.

We've tossed some ideas around for a while of doing some kind of tattooed kid shoot with Zenna just for fun. We had a stock pile of temporary tattoos from the dollar store, her birthday, Easter, etc. so we just decided to go for it. Once we got her all tatted up we decided she looked like a cute little bad ass so that's what we decided to call the session.

And of course she wouldn't be a bad ass without a bad ass bike to ride...

But even bad ass bikes sometimes need repair...

We had a ton of fun doing this session and Zenavieve loved being covered in tattoos. These are just fun memories that we will always cherish and we hope you love them too!

Kids & Leaves

We got to hang out with some of our favorite kids the other day, the sun was shining, and leaves were falling and looking beautiful so we decided to sieze the opportunity and had a spontaneous photo session with these cute kids. 

We started the day with just the girls while Owen was in school. And these two BFF's sure had a blast jumping, playing and throwing all the leaves. 

Once we had all three of them we knew we had to get some cousin photos. These three are all within just a few short months from each other in age and have been friends pretty much since birth. 

Here are some of our favorite shots from the day. We hope you love them as much as we do! 

And just for fun, because we all know Ben is a kid at heart, here is some of him playing in the tree too.
