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 [...]

Tyler – Senior @ Camas High Class of 2017 {Senior Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I taught high school history for 24 years. While I'm thrilled to be a photographer I do miss the "kids". That is one of the reasons why I love Senior Sessions. I get to spend some time with some pretty cool teenagers and Tyler is definitely one of them! After being rained out of our original date we rescheduled for a gorgeous Wednesday Fall morning. Tyler is a local Camas boy so we planned to do part of  his shoot in the historic downtown area which I love! Brick walls, tree lined streets, stairs, colored doors all features this photographer [...]

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 [...]

Mr. Tabor 1 year shoot – {Family Photographer Battle Ground, WA & Vancouver, WA}

Little boys just do me in! They seriously do damage to my heart! They make me miss my little guys so much I find myself with ideas of grabbing total strangers kids just to squeeze them for a bit! Happily Tabor's shoot was scheduled on a day where the weather cooperated beautifully! It was last Monday a week ago - and I find it difficult to believe as the rain pours outside my window... Happily I was able to get some squeezes on with Mr. Tabor after he finished his big photo session. Tabor just turned 1 and with 4 [...]

Little Miss B – {Family Photographer Battle Ground, WA & Vancouver, WA}

Life has been CRAZY!!! I think Fall is always this way and frankly I wish it would just slow down! There are gorgeous reds, yellows and oranges for the eyes, pumpkin flavored everything for the tummy and a lovely crispness in the air that means boots! It is my favorite and it just flies by so quickly to that hectic, frantic thing called Christmas....Oh how I wish I could hit the pause button! Today I wanted to share some pictures of the adorable Miss Bristie! Oh what a cutie patootie! We had fun talking about princesses and practicing her princess [...]

Senior Megan – Class of 2017 {Senior Photographer Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA}

I loved meeting Megan for our Senior Session. It was another gorgeous day and we met at Lewisville Park for her shoot.  I think almost the first thing I said to her was "you have gorgeous eyes!" With her fabulously curly hair and her sparkling blue eyes I loved photographing her! She lives in the Camas area but choose to come up my way for her pictures. Megan is musical and brought along her ukulele for some of her pictures. What I didn't anticipate is that at the time of our session there was also a cross country race with [...]

A Beautiful Story – The Richardson Family {Family Photographer, Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA}

I was busy planting my garden back in the late spring when my cell phone rang. Marian was on the other end. I didn't know Marian and she didn't know me. Something extraordinary had just happened in her family and she was looking for a photographer and wondered if I would be available to do a family session in September. You see after 49 years of marriage {and family pictures} there was one more that needed to be added. A son, a big brother, another member of the family. As I stood in my garden listening to her story of [...]

Happy Monday?

I woke up this morning with my head swimming with a long list of things to do AND worry about from now until 5am Thursday morning. It is a LONG list. 8-O I'm sure I'm not the only one waking up on the wrong side of the bed today.  :-| First on my list was to help my kid load the last few items and say goodbye to him - again. I'm so thankful for a Grandpa that is available to help Josh move into his new duplex. I will get to do this again tomorrow when Ty heads out. [...]

Senior – Jackson {Senior Photographer Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA}

I met Jackson's Mom Cathy last winter when she was working in the office across from mine. Cathy is cheerful and bubbly and loves her kids! I was excited when she booked her son Jackson's Senior Session way back in the Spring. She told me he didn't want senior pictures but she had bribed him by saying he could fish during some of them.  ;-) I didn't meet Jackson until we gathered at the park for his Senior Session. Whether he was there against his will or not he never let it show. Polite, friendly, and willing to pose for [...]
