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 [...]

Cousins Camp – Silver Lake {Event Photographer Vancouver WA & Battle Ground WA}

I have been invited for the past 3 years to be the photographer at a cousins wake-boarding, water-skiing, tubing, playing in the water - camp. It is a big beautiful family with a fantastic tradition that goes back at least 4 generations on this lake. Throughout the day I would hear the grown ups tell stories of how they nearly died doing various daredevil activities when they were kids. They were telling me these stories while occasionally yelling out to their own kids to be careful and not do such and such. Which made me smile.  ;-)  It was a [...]

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

It was so fun working with Julia. It is an interesting process photographing people you have just met. It is my job to help them relax and feel their beautiful selves in a matter of minutes. So I can get to work and capture this exciting time in their lives. I met Julia and her mom April only a few minutes before our Senior Session.  I immediately knew this would be a great session. She was friendly, open and confident - a breeze to work with. I appreciated how easily she trusted me and happily posed for the camera. I [...]
