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.

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 with such a beautiful towhead; not in my wildest dreams would I have imagined my blonde haired-blue eyed baby. Well, my reasoning was that most likely, his hair will darken with age. And most likely the curls will lose their volume once we cut it. Nate, however, was raised by a VERY wonderful mother who encouraged her boys to look well-groomed and handsome. A valid point. Nate and I struck a few deals and both made some compromises and finally the date was set. One of my conditions was that we had to do a photo shoot with Jace before his cut… Nate’s condition was that I had to do it. It was HOT. It was late. Jace was tired and so was I – but here is what I captured in our 20 min photo session the day before his haircut.“Girls? Gag.”Goodbye, luxurious locks.  “Ok, Mom. You ran out of jellybeans, so…. I’m done. Let’s go find Dad.”
