What a fun afternoon! Children, Family, and Senior Photographer - Portland, Oregon

I had two senior session in a row on this day and the girls couldn't have been more different but both equally enjoyable! I just love coming across young woman in today's world that are delightful, confident, and enjoy life. It is a true testimony to the families that raised them. This young woman was so much fun. She even brought a cheering group with her, which was a great idea. It immediately relaxed and we ran with it. She had so many great shots to pick from it was hard to narrow them down. Thanks so much for a great day!! Happy Sneak Peak...

What a joy... - Senior Photographer, Portland, Oregon

Okay so there are people out there who are just innocently beautiful both inside and out and they are so humble about it. This young woman had such a sweet spirit. She was quiet and introspective. She was enjoyable to carry on a conversation with and just took beautiful shots. I think your mom will be very pleased with her gift from you. Thank you for the opportunity to get to know both of you! Enjoy your sneak peak..

Wildwood Preschool - Last Day...

Hello everyone.... Wildwood Preschool, yesterday was your last day to order. If you couldn't meet the deadline for some reason, please call or email and we can talk.

I will be in and out today. Not feeling the best and trying to battle it by laying low (with a two and four year old! haha). The occasional sunshine sure does feel good!

Hope you are staying healthy and well!

What a beautiful day!

Oh my I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the fall. I am a midwesterner at heart so this fall has really felt like home to me. The colors are just truly vibrant and so amazing. I just think nature is so miraculous in its ability to display such vibrancy!! I think that nature is sometimes the root of so much of my work... especially the fall! It is a time of true joy for me. I will leave you with that and off to rake leaves with my kids and probably find ourselves jumping in them too! :)

Such great friends!

I love photographing close friends... it is so fun having the opportunity to play with their kids and give them my undivided attention. I feel like I get to know them even better:). This family is so sweet, colorful, and their little ones are just insanely cute! Their eyes.... oh my! Here's a quick sneak peak!

My little sis....

So as I have told you before, when I was back in Minneapolis in September my little sis got engaged to a wonderful man and I just couldnt be happier for them. I did a little impromptu photo shoot for their engagement and it was just so fun! She is just so beautiful, vibrant and full of life... and I miss her so much! Love to you both and many many many wonderful years to come!! Sorry these took a bit to get to you!! :)

Holiday Card Special! Don't Miss It! :)

Okay.... so where has the time gone!!

I am sooo sorry I am so behind on my posts. The last few weeks have been so crazy busy that it has been enough to just keep up on work and life. No excuses, but just needed to touch base with you and let you know what was up on my end. We have also been dealing with the "Four Year Old Blues." Oh me oh my... has it been a wild ride. I LOVE my son dearly, but oh boy... he has been quite a handful. Sometimes I feel like I just want to run as far from home as possible and then he pulls a really sweet one out of his hat of tricks and reels me back in. He is a sweetie... but lately... oh my. it has been a rocky road. Any advice on four year olds that you feel like passing my way would be SOOO awesome!

Well better one... he is screaming at my feet as I write... will get caught up on posts... I promise! Thanks again for being not only awesome clients, but awesome friends!

Take care and happy fall!

Happy Birthday!

And would you look at those eyes!!! Oh MY! What a little sweetie little Miss M is. It was so fun to see her one year later! It truly is amazing to me how incredibly miraculous our bodies are. To watch the development of an infant to a one year is truly phenomenal. Anyways, I had a great morning playing with little Miss M. She has such a beautiful little personality and sucks her thumb with her blankie in her mouth just like my daughter does. Congrats family W on such a beautiful little one and thank you for the opportunity to spend time with her!

Take care and Happy Sneak Peak!

Miss little sweet pea...

This is the 2nd time I have had the opportunity to photograph this warm and loving family. Their daughter, Miss A, is just a doll. She has such spunk and love for life already at a young age. I love it! During the session, she grabbed her little camera and started going around and taking pictures. As I was watching her, I realized she was totally mimicking me and she did it soo well!! It was just hilarious!! Thanks for a great time Miss A! Welcome to the world sweet little baby C. You have lots of fun in your future with your big sis! Enjoy and congrats on your entry into this world and your beautiful family!!

Ok... for real...

So I have been editing these sweet little newborns all day and came across some images of my daughter that made me laugh. What happened to that sweet sweet newborn stage!! Haha.... She definitely provides entertainment for us all at this stage. All I have to say is enjoy every stage because the ALL go fast and ALL are fun!! Happy Smiling!

Oh what a precious little one!

This was a such a beautiful newborn session.... and this is why I SO love coming to your home to phtograph these sweet little miracles. This mom is a violinist and a teacher as well. Her grandfather was an influential person in starting her violin career and so it felt so appropriate to include the handmade violin from her grandfather in these images. To a wonderful family...thank you for such a memorable day... happy sneak peak!!
