Sweet Little Mr L - Newborn Photographer - Portland, Oregon

Mr Little L just LOVED to snuggle and be swaddled. Can you blame him? I just wonder what babies would say about the transition from mommy's cozy, warm belly to this crazy world full of weird and new sounds, smells, and temperatures. No wonder they like to be close! What a cutie... oh and I am so in LOVE with his little swaddled couch shots. He looks so happy! I so enjoyed getting to know baby L's parents. They are such warm and welcoming people. Thank you for inviting me in to capture such a special and intimate time in your family's journey. I look forward to sharing the rest of the images with you!

Happy Sneak Peak!

Summer Photography Tip - Talk to your subject

When you are trying to get a cute picture of your child.... PLEASE dont tell them to stop and say CHEESE!! Take the opportunity to talk to them. Ask about anything... about what they love about summer, what they love about school, their favorites cartoons, anything... just please, please, please dont ask them to say cheese. We know that everyone can say cheese, but try and capture who they really are... your beautiful and precious kiddos. SO go... give it a try. It does take practice, but you can do it! Enjoy and have so much fun in this gorgeous sunshine!

Sisterly Love! Children's Photographer / Portland, Oregon

During one of my many trips to the post office recently, I met these two little girls and their mommmy and just fell in love. They are just simply adorable! They are 2 months apart and could not have more different personalities. They both have very sweet sides that shine in such different ways. Once they warmed up their spunky sides started to shine a bit and we had fun! Thank you for filling my morning with sunshine even if it was on the verge of rain!! :)

Enjoy your sneak peak!

Does it get any cuter!??? Family Photographer, Portland, Oregon

Ok, really, does it get any cuter. So a few days prior to this session, we thought for sure the skies were not going to cooperate. We almost made a backup plan just in case. But the evening came and it could not have been more beautiful! It was such a fun and playful evening. I felt like I was just a tagalong on a family picnic (except nobody really ate.. hehe). I spent some time at Family P's house prior to our session and noticed all the antique cameras displayed around their house and started talking about them and thought it would be perfect to bring them to their session. I just love pulling in personal items that make families so unique. Anyways, what a great family, what a great night and woah!! this has been a hard edit! Just too cute!
Enjoy your sneak peak!

To All The Daddies Out There / Portland, Oregon Family Photographer

I just wanted to take a special moment to wish all the amazing fathers and soon to be fathers a wonderful and happy father's day! Your work and your unconditional love and dedication to your family does not go unnoticed! So today is the day that is totally yours. Go and do what brings you joy!

I love this little quote below because no matter if you are a mother, a father, or a grandparent, there is nothing that brings greater joy than hearing these little voices call us by name... daddy, mommy, or nonnie, papa, etc. May we try to remember to stop and enjoy these fleeting moments with our children as they seem to go all too fast!

I just finished hanging a new display at Whipper Snippers in Wilsonville, OR. It is a great little place to have your child's haircut. The staff is very personable with the children. It is so colorful and fun! There are a wide variety of action-filled chairs to sit in and a big play structure to play on while waiting! Check it out the next time your little one gets a little scraggly!! :) Enjoy!
