Memories on the farm!

Last winter we lost my father in law suddenly. It hit us all very hard, but we have found much strength in each other and our community as we have pulled through it. The farm has been a place of many wonderful memories for many years. It is such a beautiful playland. I did a photoshoot last week with EIO and all the grandkids. It was so much fun and quite emotional as well! Thanks for a great time! It is a shoot I will never forget! Love you and miss you papa!

Booking for July, August and September

Hello everyone! I know this time of year starts to get really busy, so I just wanted to put it out there that I am booking for July, August and September right now. I have spoken to many families who are interested in sessions, so I wanted to make sure that you were able to pick a time that worked well with your families hectic schedules! I have added a few more sessions to the calendar for the summer and fall as things have been filling up!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and were able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine!
Take care... Annie:)

Happy Sneak Peak Family T / Portland Oregon Family Photographer

So this family purchased a family session at our sons preschool auction and I just adore them! I have had so mcuh fun getting to know them and their children this year. They are so full of positive energy and such fun-spirited people. Thank you so much for such a fun session and I am so glad the rain held out to the very end!! Yeah!! Enjoy your sneak peak!

Everyone... meet my new best friend... MR GREEN!

I tell you what... I know I brag about this all the time, but I TRULY have the best clients ever!! As most of you know, I have started in person ordering and of course, the best way to see your images is in the dark. Problem with that is that it makes it a little difficult to see my keyboard, so I am always squinting and in about a 2mm range of my keyboard to see the keys. Well of course, what any NORMAL person would do would be to buy one of those lights that plugs into your USB port so you can see better, but it is not too bright. Well... not me! I pick them up off the shelf at the store and then put it back down convincing myself I don't really need that. Why???? Well I had a client send me the best gift ever today... MR GREEN. I am so excited about him I took a few photographs of him to introduce him to everyone! I know... I am a total goof, but I just loved it and was taken back by my clients thougthfulness and generosity! Thank you!!!! :)

Photo Tip of the Day

Change your perspective!! Get down on your knees and take a picture from there. Don't always shoot from your perspective!! It will change the way your pictures look!

Just a quick note that I had one cancellation in the middle of May, so please call soon if you were interested in a May session. Sessions are booked for June. July - 4 spaces left. Summer sessions are filling up fast! Don't miss out!:)

Have a great day!:)

Here a few of my sweet peas from a fishing day trip we went on on this past weekend. My son was hilarious. Of course, we forgot a cooler, so he put his fish on this stick and was walking around showing them to everyone. We got to the car and he was determined to take them home! UGH! So we put them in plastic bag and wrapped them up tightly so we would reduce the great odor, so he could have his friends sit on his lap all the way home! Yum! BOYS!!! Gotta love them! He then woke up this morning determined that we were going again today. I think he and his daddy share the same aspirations!!! :)
