Happy Thanksgiving to All!

I would like to take the time to wish you all a happy, relaxing and safe Thanksgiving Holiday. I am so thankful to all of you for your continued support in helping me make this dream a success. I so love my job and all the clients with whom I am so fortunate to spend such great times with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Now... I am going to shut my life down for a few days and take a much needed vacation from everything. I will be out of technology reach, but will get back to you on Monday Nov 30th. Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy!

Take care...Annie:)

From my little bro

So I love the art of learning and education. I think it stems from my previous profession as an educator. Anyways, my little bro has been really working hard in his photography skills and is doing awesome. I feel like a proud mama except I am not for sure I can take any credit. This image below is of his little son and I just love the composition of it. How many of us have found our children after a major tantrum or a long week of relatives totally passed out on the floor? They are never placed perfectly in the middle of anything either. If they are on their bed, they are usually falling halfway off, etc. Anyways, I think this image reflects this stage of children perfectly! I love it. Thanks for sharing bro.

Now get out there and keep shooting. You don't have to be a professional to come up with super cool shots! Take risks, especially if you are shooting digital. What's the worse that can happen... you have to erase it !!! OH MY! :)

What a beauty...

So today I had the opportunity to photograph a very beautiful and sweet young woman. It was such a an enjoyable session and I didn't even have to chase after her! (I love the little ones, but mixing it up is good for all of us!). Miss T has such a natural beauty that just screams in her photographs. Happy Sneak Peak and thank you for weathering the cold with me today... at least the rain held off!:)

OH I am in LOVE! Infant, Children, Family Photographer - Portland, Oregon

So I was shooting today with my kids, just practicing a couple different things and came across these three shots that just melt my heart. They almost bring tears to my eyes. Whether it is my passion for my children and my passion for photography combined, I am not sure, but images of my children that so blatently describe who they are and what they are all about are soooo precious to me. I want to cover my home with them as they just bring so much joy to my heart when I see them.

My little daughter can be such a little stinker.. but I just love that sassy side of her. She has always LOVED to hide and this one was just perfect. It is behind my white balance card!

Who wouldn't love a sandbox!! Well this boy is out in his sandbox that his papa built for him for his 2nd birthday just about everyday rain or shine. I am totally not kidding last week when it was pouring rain, he was out there with his rain gear on playing with his diggers. He loves it!

Miss little pinkalicious and her duck feet web toes! That pretty much sums that one up!:)
