Love is in the Air {Wedding Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

Love is in the air. It seems men are dropping to their knees proposing to their girls all over the place! Even if Spring is delayed this year there still seems to be something in the air.... LOVE. Which makes this wedding photographer very happy  8-)  After having to reschedule once due to weather (surprise surprise) we scored a dry day in PDX for Amber and Clayton's engagement session. They are such a beautiful couple and very... smoochy... which I LOVED!!! Look at that dip! They know what they are doing! I made sure they were planning on doing the [...]

Chase those dreams big and small!

Some people just don't get me. And that's OK I usually don't get those people either.  A week ago I was wandering around Oklahoma and Arkansas with my friend Becky. She had generously proposed that we spend her Spring Break pursuing my dream of visiting all 50 States. While there we found ourselves explaining ourselves over and over again. Which was met with various reactions. "Where are you two girls from?" to which we would respond "Washington State" the next question was inevitable, "what brings you to Oklahoma (or Arkansas) This question would lead to us explaining my quest for [...]

Boyce Family {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

Beautiful days are a rarity around these parts lately. But when its gorgeous outside it takes your breath away! And in my case if you have the opportunity to photograph a beautiful family it is just the icing on the cake! This sweet family was so fun! I meet Brandon who is an electrician over a year ago through a business networking group. Last time I saw him he wasn't yet a dad. I was thrilled when he called to say he wanted me to take family pictures of their new addition! We headed to a park in Camas and [...]

Happy Momma! Spring Break 2016

My boys are home! We will be leaving for the beach Sunday. I could not be more excited! We have not been together as a family of 4 under one roof since Thanksgiving! While we have seen each other its just not the same as having them home! Jeff and I came up with a plan. We planned to WIN! I noticed that I have some friends that win with their kids because of certain advantages - usually in the form of vacation homes, plane tickets or other goodies that insure their kids will come home for the holidays. After [...]

Marshall Family -{Family Photographer Vancouver WA & Battle Ground WA}

How many people do you know from Arkansas? I grew up pronouncing it Arrr-KANSAS pretty sure I didn't get that right until I was an adult. We just don't encounter too many people from Ar-CAN-SAW in these parts. The Marshall Family is from Arkansas and they are good people! I'm happy to say I now know 3! And they are lovely! Matt and his wife Sandi just transplanted themselves out here last Fall. After assurances that no it doesn't really rain here that much  ;-) they packed up and moved across country. Their daughter Autumn who still lives in Arkansas, [...]

Hello #48 {Travel Photography Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I have travel goals and I take them seriously. Does anyone else share this passion with me? Of course as a photographer one of the joys of traveling is finding those unique landscapes to capture with my camera and bring home. Landscape photography is very therapeutic for me and the best souvenir I can bring home from a trip are some gorgeous shots.  I have been VERY blessed with opportunities to travel. So the majority of the places I've been to have, for the most part, just happened. Because of my job or life's circumstances I have had lots of [...]

Fear – Live your Life {Vancouver WA & Portland OR}

Why does FEAR hold such power of us? Fears of failure, embarrassment, being injured (might be helpful here), falling short of expectations, .... I've been told by a few people how BRAVE I am in starting my own business. When I think about that I have to laugh because I honestly didn't realize that was what I was doing. I was just finding the courage to become a photographer. To be able to say with confidence I'M A PHOTOGRAPHER meant pushing through fear...       When I began I seriously did not deliberately set out to start a BUSINESS [...]

True Love ~ Family Photographer {Vancouver WA & Battle Ground WA}

 Mawwaige that blessed arrangement,  that dream within a dream.  :-D  Any Princess Bride fans out there? I had the privilege of meeting Howard and Berta. They will be celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary this April. Their sons have arranged a family celebration which will fall on their actual wedding date of April 9th. And since this is such an important milestone, they are taking the time to have some portraits made to help celebrate.  :-D  As a photographer, I'm always a tad nervous about meeting people for the first time. Especially when it is right before their photo session. While [...]

Ryan Graduate Class of 2017 {Senior Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

This is Ryan, he will be graduating from the 8th grade this Spring. Graduate session are some of my very favorite sessions as a photographer. It is a luxury to be able to work with one individual. As a photographer one of the largest challenges I face is to make sure EVERYONE in the picture looks good. So with only have one person to focus on  ;-) is a real treat.  But most of all its just an awesome age group to work with. It doesn't matter which graduation it is its always an exciting mile marker in an individuals [...]

Family Photographer {Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I've said it before and I will say it again {and again} family is such a beautiful precious thing. It becomes more precious as children become adults and people go on their separate paths. To have the opportunity to photograph a family that comes together and see they joy they have in being together is a privilege. I feel the responsibility of capturing this special and rare moment in their lives.  Say Hello to the Fabulous Hansen Family - This session was very special because I have known the Hansen Family most of my life. Kind, loving people they have [...]
