Portland Stylized Whimsical Rustic Wedding

I couldn’t be happier with the opportunity to capture a beautiful, sunset styled shoot, with some of Portland’s most desired wedding vendors.  Melissa, with Twigs and Twirls, had a vision and she executed it perfectly.  She collaborated with Something Borrowed Portland for rentals, Peggy at Island Girl Floral Design for the gorgeous Floral Design, and the ever amazing Seri with SeriousCake.  Everything came together at just the right moment for that most desired sunset lighting. Thank you, Ryan & Britney […]

Children’s World War II era Styled Session

I haven’t wrote a blog post in a while, but I realized I couldn’t share ALL my favorite images on FB or IG, as it would be a major picture overload.  So, here I am sharing this beautiful session styled by my sweet friend Tami. Tami, has a history in film costuming and makeup, and has so much talent it overflows.  Her vision for a styled session with her children has been milling over in her mind for some time, and […]

Depaoli Baby – Fresh 24

I’ve heard them called “Fresh 48,”  but this is an official “Fresh 24.”  24 hours after Amelia “Mia” Louise DePaoli was born, Jacey and Micah invited me into their hospital room to capture this treasured time.  I call it a privilege to have a peek into their first full day with their newest little daughter.  Baby Mia joins big sister Evy in the adventures of life.   These two little cuties will without a doubt be full of fun and A LOT of […]

Norman Family Session

My family and I may never move.  Why would we ever move when we have THE greatest neighbors, who are more like Friends and less like quiet strangers you choose to ignore.   EVERYday our children are outside playing, riding bikes, scootering, or just sitting around chatting together.  What’s even greater?  The adults are all out doing the same thing, okay maybe not scootering, but you’ll find us outside, hanging together. Husbands and Wives out catching up most days.  I don’t […]

Maternity Session with the Spiess’.

  Tyson and Michelle invited me to capture their growing family on a summer evening out in the beautiful community of Mulino. I’ve visited places all over Oregon, but have never been to Mulino.  As I drove through this area filled with trees and rolling hills I surprised by how picturesque the area was and grew with excitement as I got closer to our destination.  The private property was amazing and Michelle was wearing a breathtaking headpiece and beautiful lace dress.  It was a perfect evening session and here […]

Oregon Coast with the Buckmasters

Ah I love this family.  I’ve been capturing their lives for the past 5 years.  Family sessions, newborn sessions, and now my first beach session with them couldn’t have been more fun. Yes, it was a bit chilly, and foggy, but they had the best attitudes and we really enjoyed the morning.  Wading through the water, capturing them nestled in the rocks, and strolling along the beach together was a perfect way to end their vacation getaway.  Thank you Terri and […]

Fults Children- Portland, Oregon Photographer

Peyton and Tyler are the funnest children.  We set out on a late Sunday evening adventure, just the three of us to see what trouble and fun we could find.  My children and the Fults children play together daily and they always find some fun imaginative game to play.  Typically T is a choo-choo train, and Peyton and my Ella are found playing with their dolls or riding bikes.  On this evening we headed out and captured their sweetness toward each […]

Baby Amaia, Portland, Oregon Photographer

Sweetness shines through baby Amaia.  She was such a good baby and even at 8 days old she was calm, sleepy, and easy to photograph.  I typically schedule our sessions at about day 3 or 4 after baby is born, but we were all fighting colds and flu’s.  I was a bit nervous about scheduling out so late, as babies are typically starting to come out of the baby coma.  But this baby girl was precious and was a blessing […]

Araujo Portland Maternity

A maternity session for the ages.  A great, long story, very short, Jake (dad to be) and I go WAY back. We had the best time serving in our church’s grade school children’s ministry. Long before we were married to our amazing spouses, and maybe even while Jake was in High School.  13 years later, here he is married to his gorgeous bride and welcoming a baby boy….name to be announced.  I can’t wait! I had the difficult job of […]
