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 [...]

Happy 2017 Cheers to a New Year!

So here I am sitting in my office Jan 4th 2017. It is FREEZING outside by the sky is an amazing blue. Lucy is at my feet chewing on a treat and I am all caught up on my editing. On my desk are two long to do lists so even without editing I have plenty to keep me busy. My oldest is in the final 30 min of a 10 hour 38 min flight from Heathrow to San Francisco. Sadly for him he has two more flights today before he finally arrives back at WW.  My youngest is in [...]

Akrawi Family {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

Baby it's COLD outside! Originally this family was scheduled for their photo session on the day of our first snow. But these California transplants opted to move the session up a day and I'm glad we did. We were rewarded with blue skies but a chilling east breeze kept us moving! We had gorgeous light to work with thanks to those clear skies and I loved the fall colors the Akrawi family wore. Which made for some beautiful pictures. Evan had the coolest coat! We were all about ready to climb in there with him! Emma had firm control of [...]

Mason- Hendrickson Wedding {Wedding Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I've known Chase since he was a little guy. I was even his History teacher. Which means I suffered through several of his pranks. The most memorable being walking into a classroom only to be greeted with a viscous sprinkling from a class armed with squirt guns.  :lol:  Chase hates being upfront so I took great pleasure in finding ways for him to be upfront in my class.  :twisted: Ours has been a "friendly" war through the years. I just met his gorgeous Fiancee,  Katie this year. Man did Chase luck out with this girl! She is stunning, laid back,happy [...]
