Welcome to the world baby C! Portland, Oregon Newborn Photographer

Welcome to the world baby C! For being on the older side of newborns, this little guy did so well. I have never gone through a couple blanket changes before without my little newborns waking up... well not baby C! He was sound asleep! Apparently he had been a party animal the night before, so maybe that was in my favor. Anyways, I so enjoyed my time with little C. He is just the most precious little baby. I so enjoyed getting to know his wonderful parents as well. Thank you for giving me the joy of photographing him at such a precious time in his life! Enjoy your sneak peaks!

Talk about FUN! Children's Photographer, Portland, Oregon

Ok this session seriously was so much fun. This family purchased my session at their school's auction this winter. I spoke with the mom briefly over the phone and said, "just bring whatever makes your children them!" and she did. I just LOVED it! These kiddos have such personality, color and a great LOVE for life. What a reflection of the love their family shares. Thank you so much for such an inspiring, colorful and completely playful session. I had a ball! Enjoy your sneak peaks!

Happy Birthday Little Miss Blue Eyes! Children's Photographer Portland, Oregon

I just feel so privileged to watch my little newborns grow. It is such a miraculous year to me that goes by all too fast! At what other point in our lives to we go from being basically a minuscule cell to a beautiful walking being. Wow!! That blows me away.

So baby S and I played all morning. We set out to celebrate her birthday and have a some fun. She enjoyed the balloons, but like a really good girl, loved the sticks and dirt best! Can you blame her!??! Her eyes are to die for! I always have a sweet spot for beautiful baby eyes.. ahhh... and those lashes!! Anyways, this little girl is a cruiser. Her mommy said she has been walking since 10 mths! Woah.. watch out mom and dad! I definitely got my workout, but I couldn't have had more fun!

Thanks baby S for such a fun session and I wish you a wonderful belated one year old birthday and many happy happy returns!!

Thank you for letting me take part in the festivities!

I am back but a little behind! Children's Photographer / Portland, OR

Hello everyone. I am back. I am sorry I have not posted in a really long time. I dont have one of those cool I Phones that helps you stay in touch while you are gone nor am I connected to the internet on my phone, so when I am gone, I am truly gone. I had a WONDERFUL time at the conference. I learned so much and met so many amazing people.I roomed with some awsome ladies from Portland. It felt great to connect with women who do what I do locally. Anyways, all around a great trip and you will see some new things happening here in the next few months. I am just trying to catch up from being gone, but I promise to post some fun shots soon. Hope you are doing well and enjoying this spring weather. Yeah... no rain!

My little baby girl is turning 3! Portland, OR Family Photographer

My little baby girl is turning 3! How can that be??!! My mom always said, make sure to enjoy the little things because time flies by too quickly with children, and she was right. It is going way too fast. Well she is definitely growing up. She is full of personality, totally loves her princesses and ballerinas, and can play soccer with the boys like the best of them! She has fire, but is such a sweetheart (when she wants to be... hehe). We are so blessed to haver her in our lives!

I was supposed to go to a preschool conference this morning and opted out choosing to hang out with my family before I leave for a week-long conference. I am sooo happy I did that! We were going to the zoo, but once we arrived realized everyone in the world had the same idea! Man... we were bummed. We drove around for 15 min trying to find a parking spot! Oh well.. we went with 2nd best, the castle park, as Etta calls it! We played hide and go seek, went down the slide and hunted deer tracks! Etta says she didnt see a deer, but she really saw bear tracks!! She was so convinced! She and I snuck away for a little hike of our own and it was such a peaceful and memorable one. We were warmed by the amazing spring sunshine and so enjoyed all the new floral scents that filled the air. She, once again, proved that her legs are just a tad bit quicker than mine, saying, "you can't get me... the whole way!" It was great. Now everyone is home and the boys are out working on the yard and I am making some bday cupcakes. What a great day!!

It feels so good to just stop and drop all those must do's and enjoy being a kid again!!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Lots going on - Family Photographer - Portland, Oregon

I just wanted to give you a heads up that I will be in and out for the next week and a half. I will be attending a preschool parenting conference on Saturday and then off to the Wedding and Portrait Photography International Conference on Sunday for the week. It is intense from what I hear, so I will most likely not be shooting or blogging that week. I am so excited to go and learn from all the AMAZING resources. I will have so much to share when I return... so WATCH OUT!!

Until we meet again... enjoy the incredible journey of spring as the flowers start to bloom, the birds begin to sing more often and earlier, and dusk starts to creep into the evening later and later. Oh I just love watching it all unfold! Enjoy!

A few from the digital drawer - Children's Photographer / Portland, OR

Hello everyone. I am back and had such a wonderful weekend observing my friend and amazing photographer. I will post images shortly of our sessions on Saturday, but I wanted to share a few from a workshop a while ago. I was updating some of my materials today and came across these images that just spoke to me. As digital photographers, we sometimes have a bad habit of keeping beautiful works of art hidden in our digital drawers. I am trying to be better about this as all these images have a right to be seen and adored. I know it is hard, but try to do something with your digital images, but know... you aren't the only one who struggles with the never ending task of finding time to work with them. Anyways, sorry for the ramble, just wanted to share these precious kiddos with you! Have a happy day!
