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.

Jace’s Blessing…

A couple of Monday’s ago, on my Life Thru the Macro post on Nate’s blog, I talked about Jace’s blessing. As is the tradition at church, we presented Jace before the congregation and Nate gave him a name and a blessing. It was a beautiful experience. In that post, I spoke about my fears as a mother, about how in this day and age, there has never been a greater need to instill in our children the standards and values that we hope they can live by. The world is a dark place… new evils and evils as old as Cain himself seem to rampage through the Earth. At the same time, I am filled with hope. Filled with the knowledge, that our special little boy Jace is unique, and ‘strong and courageous’. There is no need to despair, because I have to believe that good will prevail. Here are some shots of our little family, and of the light of our life, Jace [taken by our sweet Mama photographer, Jen Perkes].
