meet Trisha

Hi, I'm Trisha! I'm a maternity and newborn photographer in Spokane, WA. I have grown up in Spokane and graduated from EWU with a degree in Business Administration & Marketing. I satisfied my creative side by working as a marketer and graphic designer for several years before pursuing my love of photography professionally. When I first started out, I thought I wanted to be primarily a wedding photographer, but have since discovered a passion for celebrating new life through photography, so I switched gears to pursue maternity and newborn photography, and found myself falling in love with photography all over again! I have had the priviliege to learn from several wonderful photographers, in person from Crystal Madsen Photography and Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel, and through online classes and videos from Kelly Brown, Ana Brandt, and many others. I find it so important to keep learning and growing, so I'm always pushing myself to do that :) 

I am happily married and we have two wonderful daughters - Nora and Lucy. Nora is an adventurous, very spirited, 2 and a half year old. She is what inspired my love of photographing babies back when she was just born - they grow so incredibly fast that it's really made me appreciate how important it is to have those memories documented :) And we just welcomed Lucy this past December. We are of course still adjusting to life with a toddler and newborn, but we already can't imagine life without her :) Rounding out our craziness are our three adorable furbabies - Hagrid, Luna, and Peanut. (Peanut came with the name, though sometimes we joke about renaming him Dobby so he wouldn't feel left out lol).  Clearly I'm a big Harry Potter fan ;) 

I'd love to hear all about you and discuss how I can capture your memories for you. Send me a text at 509-230-8517, an email at trisha@trishabruininks.com, or fill out the form on my contact page :)
