  • WE ARE…

    ... THE PERKES. We still consider ourselves newlyweds [we've been married for almost 5 years]. Our firstborn, Jace, is now 2 years old, and became a big brother when Sofia Rain joined our family in November 2012. We are from the East Coast [Luisa is from MA and Nate is from NH]. We are Bronco's Fans [We've lived in the Boise area for almost 5 years]. We are travelers. We are athletes and we are dancers. We are enthusiastic about food. We are spontaneous. We are addicted to the sun. We are in love.

    Most importantly... we are HAPPY. We are the Perkes.

The photography is just beautiful, and I also enjoyed sipping my Hot Chocolate to the pretty music. My daughter is also a photographer…we are lucky. I'm learning to use my new Nikon D-90 in Manual Mode….little by little.

Our First Christmas Tree!! . The finished product! It was the classic tree-decorating evening, like something from a movie. While we listened to Judy Garland Christmas, and had homemade white and milk chocolate chip cookies with Eggnog, we looked outside and it was WHITE everywhere. We enjoyed our first snowball fight of the season, and…
