Who Does She Think She Is? Family Photographer - Portland, Oregon

Being a woman and an artist in today's society is not an easy task. We LOVE what we do with our children and family on a daily basis and would not take that away for the world, but trying to fit art and creative expression into that can be a very challenging feat. When you have that burning desire to create and capture it is difficult to stifle or push it aside as it is so much of what makes you who you are. I came across this little video on women and the arts and was very inspired by it. Within in me I struggle balancing my passion for the arts and photography and my passion to be a wonderful mom, wife, friend, etc. It is a balance that is so difficult to strike. This movie clip reminded me so much that I am not alone and neither are you! Don't be afraid to take time for yourself and the passions that you hold near and dear to you. In the long run, the benefits will be so great!

Our new specs! Children's Photographer, Portland, Oregon






This is my son and these are his new specs. Aren't they sooo stinkin cute. He picked them out because he liked the green on the inside because it reminded him of John Deere Tractors (his love in life!). You know when you hear the doctor say that your child can't see very well your heart just sinks. How long has this been going on for and how will this change him? Will he get made fun of in grade school? Will he fight wearing them or will he be a champ? This is the second pair we have had for him, the first one didn't correct his vision enough. So a specialized worked on this prescription and I think this one is a go. Although, the other day he did say, "Mom I can't see in these glasses." and my response was, " Well hmm... I need you to understand the difference between telling me the truth and a fib. If you REALLY can't see out of them, then mommy will need to make another appointment and they will have to put more drops in your eyes and your eyes will feel all funky and we will have to be at the doctors most of the day to figure this one out again. So, if you are fibbing then it would be a bummer to spend the whole day doing this. If you are telling me the truth, then this would be a good way to spend our day so we can get the prescription correct." His immediate response was, "Mom, I think I can see just fine now." Haha... I got a kick out of that one! He has been such a champ with this process and Nonnie's green MASSIVE garbage truck sure helped the situation along! Thanks Nonnie... I am not for sure who appreciated the truck more, me or Finn:).

So here he is... a wonderful, sweet, maturing (yes... he is maturing.. ahhhhhhhhh finally!!) and loving little boy with his new sweet specs!

Yummy yummy lollipops! Children's Photography Portland, Oregon


Ok so I took my daughter out today for a little photoshoot and we had a ball. I have had this sucker just sitting staring at her on my desk for a LONG time and she has been begging to "Yeat It!" So I gave in today and decided today was the day. She is such a hoot and has been SO fun to watch grow up, especially these last few weeks. She just has such spunk and personality! It was a fun morning playing around with her singing songs about raindrops and telling jokes about pickles crossing the road. Children are just so beautiful and simple. It truly amazes me how much fun and high on life they are when you stop and focus just on them! The only sad part of our shoot was at the end, as she came running down the hill and I repeatedly said... BE CAREFUL!!! and after I took this last shot, splat she went sucker and all. Oh it was not a fun way to end a great morning. But in her true form, she recovered like a true champ!!







Session Special!!


The first 5 clients to book a session by February 6th will receive a complimentary 8x10 from their session.

Session must take place by April 15th, 2010.
