Nate & Luisa bio picture
  • 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.

Sheri Morales - Between Nate’s super talent and the angel (cherub) subject of my grand son, I just just can’t help but smile and giggle at this beatiful boy of ours. My heart beats faster when I see his pictures or hear his voice, including his Hi to us. Thank you mucho for the up date in the blog, cant wait to see the Utah trip up date. WE LOVE YOU GUYS.

Jen Perkes - I want to eat him up!

Ken Perkes - Baby Thor with cheerios!

Diane Godbout - Did you keep his locks in a scrapbook?

Sheri Morales - You guys are so cool, I know that it is hard to cut such beautiful hair. Luisa, do you remember when we finally cut Alexanders hair for the! st time, and we took those studio pictures ( His curls were more tight though), so we waited til he was 3. I love it. Anyway, Jace’s personality still shines through just like Alexander and his beautiful smile.

Alison Perkes Sullivan - We is so adorable. I think he would have a great time playing with my son Finnian. He has the same big blue eyes and blond hair yet not a curl in site!

Ken Perkes - Well, even without that the long golden curls, he is adorable! Great barbershop photos!

The Controversy…

Nate and I have fought long and hard about this topic. We agree on almost everything that really matters in life… but on this, we DID NOT agree. JACE’S HAIR. I think that Nate wanted to start cutting it a year ago. I thought it was miraculous in the first place that we ended up…
