  • A Note From Rose

    Thank you for visiting, and checking out my work. I feel so privileged to be able to do what I love, and contribute to my client’s lives in a way that ties us as friends. I did not decide to become a photographer because I thought it would be a lucrative career path, I chose photography because it makes my heart sing. The emotion, the light, the story, it makes me feel like Christmas morning, and if you know me at all, you know how much I love Christmas. My love for my work is what challenges me to continually hone my skill, and keep discovering new ways to convey my heart through Photography. This is what I do. I would be honored to photograph your love, and become your friend. This blog is a place for me to post my latest work, share my thoughts, and connect with the world. Feel free to leave a comment if you've visited or enjoy my work. Cheers!

Love Portraits | Dana + Susan

What a special photo session this is for me to share.  Meet my awesome In-laws, and seriously, isn’t Susan the most beautiful lady!?  I remember when I first met them many years ago, when me and my now husband, Peter, weren’t even dating yet.  They are kind, warm, and authentic, the kind of people you feel lucky to call friends. Susan is an artist and Dana an Engineer, much like Peter and I.  We learn so much from their example.  And I am ever thankful they raised such a kind and respectful son for me to marry!  These photos are especially special because these are the first professional photos they have ever had taken.  I am so honored they asked me to capture these special moments for them.  37 years later and they are still so evidently in love.

Dana and Susan I am blessed to have you as my Father and Mother In-law. My life is richer because  you are in it.

Fabulous pictures of two wonderful people.

Downtown Spokane Wedding | Amy + Peter

The last wedding of the season was a awesome one, taking place all over our lovely city.  We started off at the Davenport Hotel for getting ready and then headed to the Gonzaga Campus for photos.  These GU alums were happy to walk all over campus to take photos.  The ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Aloysius Church with all their friends and family present.  I love the deep purples amy picked for her colors.  This wedding was warm and lovely just like Amy + Peter.  After the ceremony we headed to the rooftop of the convention center overlooking Riverfront Park for the reception.  I had a great time hangout out with these guys and all their friends as they danced the night away.  We were even graced with a glorious sunset after a dark cloudy day.  Oh and did I mention the Mariachi Band that made a surprise appearance?!   Good job Peter, how awesome.  Enjoy a peek into this wonderful wedding day.  Amy +Peter, it has been great getting to know you and document your love over the past year.  Best wishes on your new life together as Husband and Wife, you guys are awesome!

Newborn Photography | Baby Abraham

Oh my word, this little one is such a cutie!  Having photographed his adorable parents for their maternity session this past summer, I can’t say I am surprised.  I especially love how they call him ‘Abe’, and also affectionately ‘Ham’ for short.  Too cute!  Take a peek at this handsome new bundle and his glowing parents.  Ahh sweet baby.

Meadow Springs County Club Wedding | Hope + Sam

One of my favorite weddings of the year.  Hope and Sam are awesome so it only make since their wedding was one for the books! This lovely wedding in Richland WA was full of love, laughter, and joy.  These two were married on the river at a private estate and then held their reception at the lovely Meadow Springs Country Club. And let me tell you, the light out on that course was just divine! With a group of friends who know how to party and fill a dance floor, there was never a dull moment throughout the whole night. Grandma even got out and danced!  Hope + Sam I wish you much joy in your new life together as Husband + Wife.  You guys make such a stellar pair!
