Spokane Family Photographer


You are right, this is a great time to get your family pictures!  :)

Get ready for some fun interaction and real smiling in the great outdoors! The Spokane region is filled with beautiful landscapes and I am excited to take you to them! High forested mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, grassy hills or even your own backyard. Your family pictures will easily find their way to your home and your heart. Invitations or Christmas cards? I have got you covered!

I am excited to capture you, being the easy going, fun loving, outdoorsy and adventurous family that you are. Lets get that perfect balance of casual and formal posed family photos.

Does this sound like the kind of family session you're up for?

Do you like laughing together, playing games and being outside hiking, camping, and loving life as a family?  Then we are a perfect fit! Your fun outlook on life will bounce off my camera to be remembered for years to come in your home.

Fun• CASUAL• Natural

Your Family Picture Experience


I am a respectful down to earth guy who likes to keep your photo session as fun and casual as possible. Why? When you are relaxed and having a great time - your photos will be amazing! To keep things casual we will move between directed poses and informal 'real life'  photos.


A studio just doesn't do justice to the beauty of natural light and the incredible sights available to us in the Pacific Northwest. I look forward to taking your family pictures under the backdrop of such beauty. 


What could be easier - send me a message and we will get going on your  family pictures! All I require is a signed contract to reserve your session.

Most families reserve a session 4-12 weeks before their session date.

Say Hello

Step 1 of 5

Printing your photos is the last step of any successful photo session and the best way to get lifetime value out of the the investment you have already made in your family pictures. You can print the photos on your own or go through me - just make sure to do it.

To help you get the most out of your session, a print and product menu will come with your contract. I offer 3 collections to choose from. All collections include at a minimum, an album, wall art and gift prints. Prints and cards can also be purchased al la carte. This is my way of serving you to the best of my professional ability.

Choose Your Prints

Step 2 of 5

Once you sign your contract, I will send you a family photo style guide that is sure to help you find the best look for your family. Rather than going matchy matchy - I aim for complimentary looks where each individual appears their best as they flatter others within the family unit.

There are so many incredible places for family photos in Spokane from the West Plains of Cheney and Medical Lake on over to Liberty Lake and Post Falls. South to Freeman and North to Mead and Deer Park. I look for natural textures and great light and find those in the many city, county and state parks around us. I use grass covered hills, rocky water ways, tree lined trails, a mountain scene or a backyard garden in full bloom to add a PNW vibe to your family pictures.

Style & Location

Step 3 of 5

To start the session, we will meet up at your chosen location and make more personal introductions. The first few minutes are all about you getting comfortable and enjoying your family in a beautiful place.

The first photos will be your whole family together while you are fresh and ready. From there, I break off into smaller groups and individuals. Near the end of the session, we will do whole family pictures again just to give you at least two looks. Depending on your session length we may have an outfit change or a good mix of locations and poses.

Your Portrait Session

Step 4 of 5

Woohoo! Your family photos will arrive as an online gallery to your provided email address. From there you can download your images and/ or choose which images to purchase.

The most exciting part of this journey is you opening the packages of your print order, sharing the photos and displaying them throughout your home. A family photo on a wall is truly a powerful visual element to communicate each persons esteemed value in the family. I am so excited for the treasure you will have seeing your family grow through the years.

Nate did a wonderful job with our photos! He was great with our 4 kids, picked a beautiful spot near our home and made it super comfortable for all of us! He was also very quick to respond, answer any questions we had and very quick to get the pictures back to us. The communication with the whole process was great.

Nate Robinson did our family pictures and they turned out AWESOME! After finding out where we were located he found an outdoor location (my request) close to our home that had an amazing fall vibe. He had never shot there so had gotten there early to scout it out prior to our arrival. It was an adventure, tall grasses above our heads, but our family will never forget this shoot. Nate was professional, funny, brought out our kids (12, 10) personalities and got their "real" smiles. I would recommend Nate to anyone looking for a fun, family session.

We have used Nate's pictures for our church and now for our family. Nate did a fantastic job taking our family photos. He is so easy to work with! He rides the line of being extremely professional and yet laid back in a way that keeps everybody relaxed. I would highly recommend him to anyone for any type of photography! You won’t be disappointed. If he can even make me look decent, he is a miracle worker!!

Nate has such a creative and unique eye for details and capturing the moment. He thinks outside the box and sees beauty where most see weeds. What a fun experience with him and my little man!

Are you debating on who to use for your photographer? Stop debating. Nate is SO dang good at what he does and he made my vision come to life and beyond! He's quick to respond and we received our edited photos in record time.Our family does wacky/themed photos that we don't share, even the theme, until the holidays. I had some ideas we weren't able to accomplish because my adult children were late, yet it all came together and was more than I could have hoped for! I've literally been looking at the photographs ALL day! In 20+ years, I've never had so many pictures of the hubby and me genuinely smiling and laughing. My heart is SO incredibly full and grateful for Nate! I will never regret these memories captured perfectly, I would have regretted saving a few dollars and going with an un-certified person with a camera.I'll be begging him to let us be repeat customers! Words cannot express my appreciation - THANK YOU!!!

I seriously was so impressed at how fun, quick and easy the whole process was and am so thrilled to have such gorgeous pictures to cherish for each of my pregnancies! If you are in the slightest leaning towards getting maternity pictures taken, just do it, you won’t regret hiring the best of maternity photographers in Spokane!

We use Nate Robinson Photography for all our family photo sessions. Nate has the right qualities to do the difficult task of getting our children to genuinely smile and feel relaxed while also choosing great angles and lighting for the family portraits.

Nate is so easy to work with, professional, kind, and his pictures are beautiful. He took maternity photos for my husband and I when we were expecting our first child, we will cherish these photos forever! I will also say that he ensures that the client is happy with the final product.
