Snuggled up in the mountains of Northern Idaho, is a cozy little town called Coeur d’Alene. Where the trees give off the most amazing fresh smell and up until recently, the grounds were covered in snow. Back in March, I held a Simply Baby session in my home studio that was gently set up with a big fluffy white blanket on a bed. The family that came to see me, I just adore. I was able to meet this momma back when she was pregnant with her little guy and since then, kept in close contact with each. Most Sundays I was able to visit with her during church and I just about peed myself every time she offered to let me hold her little guy. Oh, I love that little man. The sweetest smiles, gives me hugs and during worship, he will sing along in his adorable baby sounds. And his sister….. oh my- what amazing eyes she has!! Here is their last session we did with big sister just flashing her big blue eyes and loving on me!

In the studio, the kids played together, jumped, crawled, bounced, played peek-a-boo and acted like a kitty. Baby S loved up on his favorite blankie and drooled the crap out of Sophie the giraffe. Just being these kiddos and their momma always makes my heart smile.

 

Here is a sneak peek into our simply baby session.

I am Jackie from Jax Creations Photography. Capturing moments and documenting life is my passion. It is so important to me to work on being present in my own family’s life and for me, taking photos of every day moments is the best way for me to do that. It helps me remember a funny moment, a certain facial expression, a sound, a touch, a feeling. It is my way to share my story with my children. That is why I enjoy doing what I do. It is a way for me to express my love in many ways.

I offer photography and video services to clients- just like you – to help capture, document and share your story and your memories. I want to help you remember the crazy messy hair your child has when they wake in the morning, the time you let your little one (or big one) help you make pancakes, or be there to capture your child’s perspective of him building a fort. I want to help you see your story!

Jax Creations Photography is located in Coeur d’Alene Idaho and servicing the areas of Sandpoint, Hayden, Spirit Lake, Post Falls, Spokane Washington. On location and in your home. Studio sessions are available for newborns, babies and maternity as well as milk bath sessions.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – Leonardo da Vinci

It it time to play a little catch up now that the holiday season is over. Wow, what a busy but fun season it was. Hopefully soon, I will have a big blog post all about it to share all the adventures we did as a family and share my own Christmas Pure Moment Film.

Before Christmas came, I had some great company with a friend of mine who I always just enjoy being around. She is just this beautiful woman, so sweet and so calm – like a breath of fresh air when we so desperately need it in our lives sometimes. As moms, even though our days may be simple with just raising children, it can be difficult for us moms to get out of our bubbles and make time for things outside of our mom life. After all, raising children and being a  wife is a full time job. But on this day, we had made some time to see each other and be in each others company.. and of course I had begged if I could grab a few photos of her adorable baby girl since the last time was when she was born.

Here is a sneak peek into our little Christmas session together. I loved this mini session because baby S really gave me a mixture of facial expressions which is always so much fun. Babies in this stage are just started to really have their personalities bloom and it is so much fun for me to be able to capture it. For the most part, I am a stranger to a lot babies so I get to sit on the floor with them and play, sing, laugh, dance and be silly. We get to explore and in return I get baby loves. The parents get to sit back – within safety distance, and just watch their little ones be themselves. And of course if their little one is on the move, they get to be my baby wrangler. Pictures shouldn’t be always about the smiles. They should be about the personality. The facial expressions. What are the cute little things they are doing right now in this stage of life?

I remember getting the message from this baby girls mom and I remember getting so excited that my hubby asked me what was so exciting.

I first met this momma years ago and have had many opportunities to capture her and her adorable son in front of my camera, but this time I was able to meet and capture her newest precious baby girl. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on her and snuggle and see some PINK! Boys are cute, no doubt but those girls are so adorable in pink bows, tuts, anything feathery, furry, flowerly.. anything!

Baby Clara is a sweet ball of 6 month cuteness. She is rolling all over and sticking her bottom up in the air like she is trying to crawl. She LOVES her big brother and smiled the whole time at him during photos. They are going to be the best brother and sister team! Baby Clara is a fan of  peas, green beans, apples, pears, carrots, and butternut squash. Her momma seems like a pro at making homemade baby food. I wish my little people were babies, that I did that – seems so fulfilling. I guess now I just have to wait years for grand-babies to come along to try my hand at that. YIKES- grandbabies- that just seems weird to say.  Back to baby Clara…. Let’s give her and momma a big high five for surviving her first tooth coming through!

Here is a sneak peek into our outdoor 6 month session – isn’t she just so cute!?!

Growing up as a military brat, we moved a lot. A LOT!! Which means that I constantly had to make new friends and attend new schools then I would have ever imagined, but it also meant not being near extended family. Nana’s, grandpa’s, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins! As much as I loved seeing the adult family members and getting loved on, I loved it even more when us cousins got to hang out. I miss that.

When a recent phone call came in to schedule a family session – focusing on the cousins, I knew this was going to be a special day. This was going to be the first time all of these little girls were going to meet. When family lives across the states AND you have kids; hoping in a car for a road trip is equivalent to being a juggling ninja hoarder. So much stuff- little car space- then need to plot out mentally how you are going to entertain any child sitting in their car seat for more than an hour- YIKES! It is just one of those things that just take planning. But finally these sweet sisters (the moms) were planning a visit with family- to meet family.

It is hard living far away as my brother and his family are states away and visiting them seems more like a 20 year plan.

 

Just days before our session in Sandpoint, Idaho, the weather was beautiful. Spring looked like it staked it’s ground. Then our session day rolled up and the clouds rolled in – RAIN. A little change of plans, but I was game for whatever these little ones wanted to do.

We all gathered in the dining room and I just watched and clicked away as I witnessed them being around each other and also watching them be who they were separately. I always find it so enjoyable when I get to just sit back and just watch babies be babies… and kids. Children are what they are and they are not {usually} afraid to show you that. I enjoyed my time with the girls as we played bubbles, bounced balls around, played with stuffed pony, and just let them be.

And cute they are!!

Here is a sneak peek into our session.
