The Hastings family have been great clients of mine! You can see them here, and here, and here. They have little Rowan, and she has grown up so much since I saw her last. Look at that HAIR. Scarlett would be so jealous. Don’t they all look great in their coats?

Thanks again for your patience!
This is another Spokane session. They just keep coming!
I met this family just over a year ago when I shot Ava’s newborn photos. Now Ava’s all grown up and soooo cute. This time we got some nice shots of the whole family. I especially love these guys because they are so laid-back. I really think we could have been friends.
The Dershem family contacted me after we had already moved to Seattle about having a family session in Spokane. Fortunately, I was able to fit them when I went over at the beginning of the month. Even though our session was interrupted by a hungry baby and a bit of rain, I think we got some fantastic shots! Thank you to the Dershems for being so cooperative and so darn good-looking!
This is my favorite shot of the day.
I wanted to post these of Stella before I head to Spokane this weekend because I know I won’t get around to it once I’m home and editing like a mad-woman.
These pictures were taken at the beginning of September and are significant because she’s wearing a diaper cover that was made by her great, great, great grandmother for Grandma when she was a baby. (did that make sense?) And the dress was Stella’s grandma’s when she was a baby too.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel down to Austin, Texas two weekends ago to do this pretty lady’s engagement photos. Heather happens to be my favorite sister-in-law-who-just-got-engaged and she and her guy Jason decided that they would have me down for a visit. Of course Stella got to make the trip too, lucky girl.
Funny story: As I was going through security I said to the TSA guy, “I’ve got a big camera in that bag, do I need to take it out?” He said, “Yah, you’ll have to take it out because you can’t take it with you.” We argued back and forth for a few minutes. . . “What do you mean? You’re kidding, right?” “No, miss I’m not kidding. You can’t take it on the airplane, you’ll have to put it in the garbage can over there if you want to continue through security.” Etc. Back and forth, back and forth. Then he finally said, very loudly and in a most annoyed type of voice, “NO MA’AM YOU CAN NOT TAKE A HAMMER ON THE AIRPLANE!” I said in an equally annoyed voice “CAM. ERR. UH. I have a CAMERA in my bag. WHY would a girl like me have a HAMMER?” Then he told me about the 96 year-old woman who had a chain-saw in her carry-on.
Back to the real story. . . Heather, Jason and I trooped all over Austin trying to get some local flava’ in their pictures. Jason took us up to the UT campus where he showed me how to make a longhorn with my hands and he and Heather joined together in a gripping rendition of the Longhorns fight song. Thanks for that Jason. Anyway, we had a blast and I am so excited that Jason will be a part of the Tucker fam now.
Thanks again for having me down guys! I hope you like what we got.
And a word of warning- this post is extra long because we shot the equivalent of 3 normal sessions over the course of the weekend!
Well, the title should read “Jane Olivia and Friends” because technically her mommy and daddy and big cousin Bentley were in on the shoot as well, but lets be honest little Jane was the star of the show. Jane was weighing around 6 lbs when I had the opportunity to photograph and everything about her seemed so tiny! Maybe that’s because my Stella-belle is weighing a whopping 11 lbs by now, or maybe not. Regardless of size, I think Miss Jane is going to be full of personality. She certainly made sure that I knew who was boss. Before the shoot, her mother swore up and down that all little Jane did was sleep so I thought my work would be a breeze. Not so Mama, not so. Miss Jane did everything in her power to foul up our session, including ruining her daddy’s shirt. But, babies will be babies and I’m more than used to that by now. And when all was said and done, I think we got some really sweet shots.
While we were in the middle of a wardrobe change for Miss Jane, we took the opportunity to catch a few shots of her ever-so-handsome older cousin Bentley. It didn’t take long before Bentley’s mama had him laughing along to The Itsy-Bitsy Spider, and drooling excessively. Just look at those beautiful eyes! Really, drooling is permissible when your eyes sparkle like that!
So I kept looking through the pictures I edited from Scarlett’s little session and each time I felt like something was missing. I had quickly ran through the pics on my camera as we drove home from Pike and I remembered there being one really fantastic picture. Maybe it was my lack of sleep, maybe I was rushing through when I edited in hopes that I could finish before Stella woke up again, or maybe I have permanent “pregnancy brain”. . . . but somehow I left out the absolute gem from the session. This picture beats all the rest by a mile if you ask me.
So here it is in both color and black and white. Which do you like best?
Finally I’m posting because FINALLY she’s here! Okay, well she’s actually a month old today- but who’s counting. . . I’ve had my hands full!
Miss Stella Jane Tucker was born on June 28th and weighed 7 lbs 10 ounces (and that’s a week early!) and was 20 inches long. She is absolutely the sweetest and she is the perfect addition to our little family. We’re both doing great and enjoying settling into our new life in Seattle.
So without further ado. . . here is my littlest girl!
The pics above were taken at less than 1 week.
Below were taken at 2 weeks exactly. Notice the pink heart birthmark she has on her side? Cute, huh?
And one of both of my little girls. Ah. Love them.
