Spending time with this family is always so enjoyable. Like really, really, really enjoyable. They never fail to have fun, smile and be themselves during a session.

Meet the C family.

They probably look familiar to you if you follow my blogs. I have actually known them since their oldest was a brand new baby. So it is always a treat to be able to visit with them and sit back and capture them all just loving on each other.

For their session, we spent most of our time at City Beach in Sandpoint Idaho. This evening we were happy to find that the beach was empty and quiet. This gave them all plenty of room to run, roam, scream, play, laugh and bury each other in the sand.

One of the many reasons why I really enjoy photographing this family is because they are REAL.  They are not afraid to show their true personalities, moods, or even their true feeling for each other. These two kiddos Рbrother and sister, get along so well and even hang around each other so nicely. They have moments just like any other siblings, but it is so refreshing to watch them play and love on each other.

Same goes for these two love birds.

This moment was the sweetest. Hubby grabbed her hands and looked into her eyes- and he like REALLY looked at her. His smile was so sweet and although I couldn’t hear what he was saying to her, you can not deny how much in love these two are for each other.

It has been such a blessing watching this family grow all together. I will never want to stop photographing them!!

As a mom of 5 kids, I know that moms everywhere imagine that they would love to spend Mother’s day all snuggled up in their bed with coffee, comfy pajamas, and the remote to the tv.. and food brought to us on demand. Possibly having the kids super quiet doing something productive with dad and no one leaving a mess behind for us to find and clean the next day. Even though that might seem like I just need a break from “mom”, I know that doesn’t mean I don’t love my family to pieces. In all the chaos, meltdowns, chores, laundry and long to do lists, I still cherish being able to celebrate the reasons why I love being a mom.

I want to document those reasons for you. I want to you have something that you can look back on and hear the laughter of your children or the sweet way they say, “I love you mom”. If you have older children or teenagers, I want to document these moments of you all having fun, being creative or just being together. Because there will be a time in your life where all is calm and quiet and you just crave to hear the word “mom” again.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing women!

Pinks, purples, dresses, painting pictures, playing with momma and loving on sister…. these are things that tell their story.

This beautiful momma welcomed home a new baby girl for all to love and snuggle on and for their storyteller session, I was welcomed into their home for a little sneak peek and introduction of new baby, Miss Hadley.

While baby sister was able to get some rest, her big sister and I spent some time playing with eggs, puzzles, dress up and more! Here is a sneak peek into their storyteller session.

Not too long ago, I posted a giveaway for 2 people to win a Storyteller Session. One of the lucky families is actually a family member of one of my clients so it was very exciting when her name appeared as one of the winners.

 

Session day arrived and as I was welcomed into their home, I just shared with them that I was just there to document their day- taking a peek into their small moments that happen. We had nothing planned or set up, just a family being together and being their normal self. I loved every moment of it. It was calm, quiet, peaceful, simple. The furry pets were even a part of the day- showing their personalities and loving on their humans.

 

Here is a sneak peek into a Storyteller Session of the A family. I enjoyed watching playtime, snuggles, feedings, thumb wrestling, feet flying, laughing, tickle fights, a daddy winning and a momma loving.

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.
