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 [...]

Senior – Victoria {Senior Photographer Vancouver & Battle Ground}

Hello! I would like to introduce the gorgeous Victoria to you. She and her Mom wandered into my studio and I'm so glad they did! They are the nicest people! As we discussed her Senior Session I was excited to hear they wanted to shoot on her Grandpa's place and he had a shinny red truck they wanted in the pictures.   When we met at Victoria's Grandpa's place I noticed that he is a lover of old cars. He told me that he purchased this gorgeous red pick-up after Victoria's Grandma died so he and Victoria would have something [...]

Hey Class of 2017!

Yes, its true Summer is quickly coming to an end and it's time to think about school again. I have been getting lots of interest in Senior Photos so I thought it would be a good time to highlight my Senior or Graduate Sessions. To be honest Senior Sessions are my favorite! I love the luxury of working with one individual. All Senior Sessions are outdoors relaxed and fun.  You can choose the location or I am happy to suggest one. I have urban, country, river, forest, wide open fields and beaches to suggest. But maybe you have a great [...]
