{Chasing Memories – Mine on Monday} Spokane Photographer

Or also titled “Frozen!”

The area where our house is has been covered in fog for a week+ (though the sun did finally break through today and was so so nice to see!) and the fog froze to the trees and they were so pretty! I had to take Emery out for a little photo shoot yesterday using the frozen trees as a background.

Love her…she is such a trooper!








She really wanted a picture with our dog, Zoey, who was not too happy being out in the cold.  😉


Spokane Family Photographer | Jaidean Baker Photography

Wow! She is looking SO grown up! Holy moly!!! Love that tree, too. Gorgeous!

Jaidean, these are incredible! I’m so amazed by frozen fog on the trees. I hope you plan on making prints of this series for your home.

[…] may remember my session I did with my own daughter during this time period, as […]

Ahhh…I LOVED this session so much!   The weather wasn’t all that great and we debated canceling, but it ended up being perfect (big puddles for jumping in at the end of the session = perfect and so much fun!).  I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. 😉







Showing me his new talent – winking!  😉


Lots of rock throwing into the river!



Showing me his new reading skills!  LOVE!!!



Nothing better than some puddle jumping!

{Chasing Moments – Mine on Monday} Spokane Children’s Photographer

My daughter turned 6 (SIX!!!!) yesterday and this weekend we had a spa party for her and her friends. It was so much fun and all the girls had a great time! Thought I’d share some pictures from the party for this month’s Chasing Moment’s post.

I got the invitation (and what I based the colors off of for the party) from Etsy seller Purpleberryink.

Spa Invite Emery final

Everyone was greeted at the door with a smoothie and asked to put on slippers and a headband.

We had three different stations. Everyone started at the table and we did facials made of yogurt and oatmeal with cucumbers for the eyes, of course. 🙂 Then they took turns at the other two stations which were pedicures/manicures and getting their hair crimped and colored (chalk).



















Whew…I survived my first ever at-home party with 8 little girls! 🙂 Really, though, it was a ton of fun to put together and host!
