Making it Official {Photographer Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA}

Last Friday evening I found myself laying on my photography studio floor about an hour before family and friends were to arrive for final preparations for the Grand Opening. As I laid there starring at the ceiling many thoughts ran through my mind. I tried to calm myself. I tried to focus.  I thought back over my journey to that moment, the moment where I was laying on the floor of my very own photography studio. I was literally floored.  I talk often about the importance of setting goals. Goals keep you moving forward, they give you a feeling of [...]

Double Trouble {Family Photographer Battle Ground WA & Vancouver WA}

I believe I have mentioned a time or two how much I love my job, every part of it! I will admit that some sessions are just a little extra special to me and this was one of them.  Christina is the beautiful momma of this gorgeous family and she is a former student of mine.  She was one of my favorites! :-)  Whenever I have the opportunity to photograph former students it just thrills my heart. I loved my years teaching and it is such a blessing to be able to connect with them again and see them with [...]

Setting the bar high…{Goal setting in your life}

Hi Friends, Thanks for stopping in. I really appreciate those of you who have supported me personally and professionally as I stumble along my path. 8-)  I'm feeling a bit intimidated and overwhelmed as of late and I know it is helpful for me to get out what is banging around in my head so here it goes.... I have dreamed of having a space on Main St. Battle Ground. The added viability plus the simple hustle and bustle of people walking by on the street would be a vast improvement over my current ghost town corner. I could not [...]

Things are changing! {Vancouver WA & Battle Ground WA Photographer}

Hi Friends! It seems I have forgotten how to blog!  :roll:  It's time for me to get back at it! Today I would like to update you on some things... Change in my opinion is good! I do appreciate stability in my life but if SOMETHING isn't changing I get very restless! Change should equals growth and where my business is concerned there are some aspects I will never change (quality customer service, great communication, fairly priced) . The bottom line is I want to grow! This Summer SFP will be moving into a new space the beginning of July! [...]

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 [...]

Ryan Graduate Class of 2017 {Senior Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

This is Ryan, he will be graduating from the 8th grade this Spring. Graduate session are some of my very favorite sessions as a photographer. It is a luxury to be able to work with one individual. As a photographer one of the largest challenges I face is to make sure EVERYONE in the picture looks good. So with only have one person to focus on  ;-) is a real treat.  But most of all its just an awesome age group to work with. It doesn't matter which graduation it is its always an exciting mile marker in an individuals [...]

Family Photographer {Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I've said it before and I will say it again {and again} family is such a beautiful precious thing. It becomes more precious as children become adults and people go on their separate paths. To have the opportunity to photograph a family that comes together and see they joy they have in being together is a privilege. I feel the responsibility of capturing this special and rare moment in their lives.  Say Hello to the Fabulous Hansen Family - This session was very special because I have known the Hansen Family most of my life. Kind, loving people they have [...]

Greetings from Big Lake Youth Camp {Event Photographer Vancouver WA & Portland OR}

Happy Monday friends,  I hope all is well with you. Yesterday I drove down and over to Central Oregon to a lovely camp I know. I have the awesome opportunity to be the photographer this week for Winter Outdoor School here at Big Lake. 6th graders from 9 different school will be arriving today to spend the week learning. For this week their classrooms will be outside in the snow sometimes even in snow caves. How cool is that! Yesterday was the day for the counselors, teachers, cooks and photographers to arrive. I have to say this is an awesome [...]

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 [...]
