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 [...]

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, [...]

Family a beautiful thing {Family Photographer Vancouver WA & Portland OR}

Families grow up together. Siblings spend every day of their lives together, until they don't. Suddenly they are off to college, or off chasing a job or just off...And then sometimes they settle far away from one another with only rare precious visits. I'm very aware of this having two adult sons. I'm holding my breath as we near the time when spouses are chosen, jobs are found. I pray they will be close but who knows? At 20 I married and moved from Washington State to Florida! It's one of the reasons I believe holidays are so precious to [...]

Mason- Hendrickson Wedding {Wedding Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I've known Chase since he was a little guy. I was even his History teacher. Which means I suffered through several of his pranks. The most memorable being walking into a classroom only to be greeted with a viscous sprinkling from a class armed with squirt guns.  :lol:  Chase hates being upfront so I took great pleasure in finding ways for him to be upfront in my class.  :twisted: Ours has been a "friendly" war through the years. I just met his gorgeous Fiancee,  Katie this year. Man did Chase luck out with this girl! She is stunning, laid back,happy [...]

Black Friday – Sale at SFP {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

What Black Friday means to me - Avoid at all costs any shopping that involves leaving the house A day to get my Christmas decorations up while Christmas music fills the house Christmas lights go on the outside of the house Sometimes venturing out to get the tree I respect those of you who do participate in the traditional Black Friday shopping. Perhaps you enjoy the thrill of the hunt. The pure competition of the event. Love to have bragging rights. I am simply cut from a different cloth. However, I was inspired this morning to offer up my own [...]

Erwin Family {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I'm not gonna lie - the weather has been STRESSING ME OUT  :-(  There is nothing like driving into PDX with the windshield whippers on wondering A) Why on earth the weathermen can't get it right (predicted a dry morning with rain only in the afternoon) B.  Will it ever stop raining on Sundays? When I called Shelly to see if they wanted to reschedule her answer couldn't have been better - nope this is where we live lets go for it! So we did and it totally paid off! This large family was a dream to work with. 5 [...]

Ravins Family – Hood River, OR {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I'm a Northwest girl through and through. I love this area! When the Ravins family reached out and invited me to photograph them in their home town of Hood River I was excited! I love that town! I lived there when I was very small but I've always thought I would love living there again (except there's no Target, PDX and the beach are too far away)  8-O  But besides that it seems pretty perfect! It is an awesome place for a photo shoot! Love the historic downtown, the river where we shot this time. But there is so much [...]

Sieng Family {Family Photographer – Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

Those of us who have the opportunity to call the PNW home are blessed with beauty all around us! I absolutely love Fall here. And while it has been a wet one!  8-O  I am so thankful that I was able to get every Family Session scheduled shot during our record breaking wet month of October.  I'm also very thankful to the families that were willing to juggle their schedules around the rainy days. The beautiful Sieng Family was one of my families that had to reschedule and then reschedule again in order to get a dry day. They live [...]

Denon Family {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I met the Denon family last year. Natalie contacted me after seeing my work displayed at Lava Java in Ridgefield. It was a very exciting moment for me because I didn't know the Denon's and here was a call out of the blue wanting to book a family session. When we did their family session last year it was a hot sunny afternoon with no worries about the weather. This year would be a different story... Guy and Natalie are laid back, easy to talk to and a joy to work with. We had a fun hour in the Pearl [...]

Squires Family {Portland OR & Vancouver WA Family Photographer}

They simply don't come any nicer than the Squires Family! I was thrilled when they asked me to take their family photos. Rumor had it that Dad wasn't that excited about the prospect ;-) - but in the end he was grateful his wife "made" him do it. They are all to aware of how their young men are growing - no longer little boys. And what fine young men they are! Friendly and easy to talk with they are also quick to offer help me carry things, folding blankets, basically always looking for ways to help.  :-D The Squires [...]
