I call this shoot a creative love child.  I had this idea of models with huge flower headdresses bouncing around in my head for a few months but had zero idea how to execute it. I reached out to a local styled shoot group and Annie Chen of Floral Sunshine was excited to take on the […]

This blog post is quite possibly going to be my favorite of ALL time, and there is a good reason. This session was a session that I planned for my mom and dad’s 30th wedding anniversary! YES, 30 years of an amazing marriage that I have had the privilege of watching and learning from.  Little […]

This couple means a lot to me because the man is my brother and the woman is my soon to be sister in law! We went to Vegas last November for my moms 50th birthday and while we were there I suggested we shoot their engagement session there. They agreed without hesitation and I knew It […]

As I always say, “Who needs feeling in their toes?”  😉 This is Holly and Andrew and these two were absolute troopers as I drug them around the top of Mt. Hood. Originally I thought we would head to a nearby lake where there was no snow, but the road was blocked off and we […]

More than year ago I shot these images. Yes, that long ago. Originally I edited them all light and pretty and sent a few out to the world. One of the two or three I edited actually got featured on a popular photographers site called Looks Like Film. It’s what I thought everyone wanted to see. […]

2017 was my busiest year to date. Maybe that is why I have been so bad at blogging. (Probably not the reason but sure, I’ll blame that.) I have been blessed to have so many amazing clients and to document many amazing life moments. I figured I should do a big end of the year […]

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve blogged anything! As some of you might have heard I moved! I didn’t go too far.  Only about 15 minutes from where I was but man, moving sucks. We are in the process of getting new flooring so we decided not to move in any of our furniture […]

I’m finally getting around to blogging this amazing elopement. Better late than never right?! It was a rare sunny day in February (In OREGON and on the beach!) when Derek and Kristin said, “I do.” The day was so peaceful and full of joy that I honestly don’t think there was a classic wedding day […]

I am so lucky that I get to play with cute babies all the time! This is Rowen and I hadn’t seen her since I shot her newborn images a year ago! She was FULL of personality and had the cutest scrunchy smile that could melt the hardest heart. When she was newborn she was […]

Welcome to the cutest blog post! <3 This is little Owen and it has been just an absolute pleasure to capture his first year of life. Those big brown eyes and long eye lashes of his just melt me EVERY TIME. He is the sweetest little guy and I think I’ve seen him cry for […]
