Fall Sessions {Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA Photographer}

I have eaten four bags of candy corn. Harvested my home grown pumpkins. Pulled out my boots and sweaters. Begun in earnest, to eat the trick or treat candy I bought to hand out. I've even eaten some pumpkin pie and enjoyed a fire in the fireplace. I am fully committed to Fall! But honestly the best part of Fall has been taking Family and Senior photos in the stunning backdrop we call home here in the NW. And yes we have had some rain, but overall it's been GORGEOUS! Here are some great reasons why Fall Family Session  are [...]


Fall Family Sessions! {Family Photographer Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA}

Fall Family Sessions I Fall for it every year. I'm often accused of wishing summer away but I'm not! Honestly. But the pumpkins in my garden and the sunflowers and the decorations in the stores are all reminding me that Fall is just around the corner. I do so love Fall. Now is the PERFECT time for Fall family pictures. The colors, the crisp air, the beautiful light we have here in the northwest, are all enhanced this time of year. It's time for you to get in the picture!!! You will not regret family pictures EVER. They are a [...]


A Mother’s Love {Family Photographer Vancouver WA & Battle Ground WA}

As a mom and a photographer I have to make a deliberate effort to have my picture taken. It's not that I enjoy having my picture taken its that I would simply like to exist... I have always enjoyed taking pictures. I fell in love with photography long before there was such a thing as a "selfie".  As a result, there are years of photo albums filled with pictures of vacations, birthday parties and various adventures  where you see my husband, kids and family members and while I was there... you will only see very few photos of me.  Existing [...]


Madison 2017 {Senior Photographer Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA}

I had the opportunity to be Madison's photographer recently. Tonight is a big night for this beauty. She will be graduating and moving on to the next big step in life!    I was thrilled to schedule Madison's Graduate Session while the cherry blossoms where in bloom a perfect match for her stunning coloring! Look at that gorgeous hair! We met at Fort Vancouver but took the time to drive up to Clark College where there Cherry trees were in full bloom! Spring came late this year but it was spectacular!    Madison will be graduating from the 8th grade [...]


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 [...]


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 [...]


Tick Tock, Tick Tock, Tick Tock….

2016 is quickly coming to a close. How do you feel about that? Are you the type that reflects back on the year and asks questions like How did I do? Do you compare years? Do you make new resolutions for next year? Do you pull out the list from last Jan 1 and notice your accomplishments? I have mentioned before I don't do resolutions. I do like to set goals for myself. For example I challenged myself two years ago to daily devotions and I have kept with that. I challenged myself last year to read 30 books this [...]


Let’s Celebrate together!

Did you enjoy the big snow storm yesterday? Or the icey slop we have this morning? I'll admit to having a bit of a temper tantrum just before noon when there still hadn't been any snow to speak of. It's such a rare event I keep hoping that this will be the time we get absolutely buried in snow.  ;-)  Maybe next time. I hope you have marked your calendars and plan to stop by on Sunday between 2-4 to visit my studio. I'm really looking forward to seeing you all and eating Becky's yummy food!  :lol:  Things have been [...]


Fry Guys {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I was stressing because I didn't know how I was going to find time for my own family shoot! How would that look?!  :lol:  It's like the cobbler with out shoes!  Sometimes the best things happen spontaneously! Last year we had sunshine and time to go to a Christmas Tree Farm and do our family shoot there. This year a combination of weather and availability meant there was no time on the weekends to shoot and with it getting dark so early a week night wasn't a possibility because of Jeff's job. Grrrrrr. Thanksgiving Day's forecast was for torrential rain... [...]


Cella Family {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I met Heather and her son Tyler this Fall when I took Tyler's senior pictures. We had such a fun time Heather asked me to do a family session with her entire family and I was thrilled to have the opportunity. Heather was beaming she was so grateful to have her family together and to be capturing precious pictures that will be cherished! I was able to meet Heather's husband Jeff, Tyler's big brother Michael and little brother Zachary.  Michael's beautiful girlfriend, Desi and their adorable son Braxley also joined in. Braxley was perfectly content in that box! I think [...]
