The summer skies were cloudy and the air was brisk. Rain and fog rolled in and it was all so magically PNW summer weather. Little baby girl had not yet been given a name, she was that fresh 😍. Congrats @babesandbrutesphotography ! Hannah is an absolute gem ❤️.

“Because I have a sister I will always have a friend.” ⠀
Being a big sister to this one right here has been something that I’ve cherished more + more the older I’ve become. She used to be the one that would annoy me as I played with my Barbies when we were younger, to the one that I now visit on a lazy Saturday afternoon as we share a bottle of wine while watching a movie. She’s truly become one of my best friends + I’m so thankful God created her specifically for our family 🖤 One of the kindest people you will ever meet + just an all around good person to know. Love you lots Libby + I hope you’re having an amazing time in one of my favorite cities 😘 📷: @anerisphotos MUA: @maranda08_mua

the second photo speaks volumes for me. sometimes we’re blinded by our imperfections where we can’t see our beautiful reflections. sometimes we need someone to help us realize that. •
shooting with hannah & nate (& erica being there too!) was so beyond fun & amazing. to get creative people together & bouncing creativity off of creativity is something i’ll never get sick of seeing/doing. love these beautiful people that i’m so lucky to be able to create with.🖤✨
Posting twice... most likely 3 times today because I just can’t help it. .
I arrived a few minutes early to this session which meant I came before a big brother got to meet his new little sister and oh my gosh, it melted my heart. He laid right next to her the moment they met. 😍😭😍
This is my love language.
Quality time for me is uninterrupted, intimate time spent between two or more people without distractions. No phones. Just talking, vibin’, + enjoying shared space.
The strongest bonds are formed when you get to know someone outside of their social media portrayal. If I miss anything about the 90s, I miss the lack of tangible technology. Parents were forced to play with their kids + engage with their peers over phoneless dinners. Now we text emojis or memes to check on people or count FaceTime and “time spent”. It’s not the same. This moment reminded me of the good ole days. Mommy + her bundle enjoying Mother Nature, no phones, just good ole quality time 🧘🏽♀️💚 #soulphyphoto
I love Instagram in the way that I get to interact with so many cool people from all walks of life and I get to share personal experiences and my most recent work BUT what I don’t understand is how maybe 10% of my friends and clients are seeing my feed. That is so bizarre! From what I’ve read, if you can comment and like any picture in my feed then you are more likely to see it pop up in your own.
I guess what they are trying to do is make us interact more;) so this is the long and drawn out way of saying, “Leave a girl a comment, like and share if you have time.” Thank you guys!!! I really appreciate it.

I haven’t done a #fridayintroduction in forever so hi everyone, here’s the face behind the photos on this page. 👋🏼
I’m Grace and I’m honored to have you following along. I’ve been obsessed (and when I say obsessed I mean REALLY obsessed) with photography since I was a kid. I’m married to a real-life superhero (ok maybe not but he’s superkind and supersmart and supercute so basically a superhero 💁🏻♀️) and together we’re raising the happy little girl named Easton who is waving at you in this photo. I was born and raised in the beautiful PNW and recently moved to the not-quite-as-scenic-but-still-kinda-cool state of Iowa. We travel a lot and like avocados a little too much and have lots of house plants just like all good millennials. At the end up the day though I’m just another person who lives a real life that’s not half as perfect as all the pretty photos I post, who has lots of hard days and good days and mediocre days too and who is profoundly thankful that Jesus and forgiveness and hope exist. ✨
Thanks for reading friend!

I wanna hear from my peeps who have side hustles! This ish is HARD. Working a 9-5, coming home, cooking + cleaning, trying to find some free time for sanity and some quality time with the man to make sure *that* garden stays watered too—and then running around like a chicken with its head cut off doing shoots + editing on weekends—it adds up. It's demanding. But as of right now, I'm still enjoying it. If you see me go a few days without posting, though, this is probably why 😂
Do you have a side hustle? Tell me about it!
I met Willie in 2008 when I started working at UCLA... and now here he is with his beautiful wife, starting their family. What an honor to capture this time in their lives 💜 #brendamunozphotography

I was so honored to capture these moments for my friends Paula + Matthew as they welcomed their third son, William, into their family. (Swipe ➡️ for more)
Their boys were over the moon excited to meet their newest little brother.
As a member of the 3 boy club myself, I couldn't have been happier to be able to watch this unfold in front of my camera. There's really no bond like the one between brothers.
Congrats, friends! 💙💙💙
