Black Friday – Sale at SFP {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

What Black Friday means to me - Avoid at all costs any shopping that involves leaving the house A day to get my Christmas decorations up while Christmas music fills the house Christmas lights go on the outside of the house Sometimes venturing out to get the tree I respect those of you who do participate in the traditional Black Friday shopping. Perhaps you enjoy the thrill of the hunt. The pure competition of the event. Love to have bragging rights. I am simply cut from a different cloth. However, I was inspired this morning to offer up my own [...]

Erwin Family {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I'm not gonna lie - the weather has been STRESSING ME OUT  :-(  There is nothing like driving into PDX with the windshield whippers on wondering A) Why on earth the weathermen can't get it right (predicted a dry morning with rain only in the afternoon) B.  Will it ever stop raining on Sundays? When I called Shelly to see if they wanted to reschedule her answer couldn't have been better - nope this is where we live lets go for it! So we did and it totally paid off! This large family was a dream to work with. 5 [...]

I want to say Thank YOU!!!

I am so thankful for each of you! I really truly am! When I began this venture I had no idea what I was doing. I was literally taking it one step at a time.  I didn't even recognize that I was starting my own business - that I would be a small (tiny) "business owner"  :-o  I just knew I loved two things. People and photography and I wanted to find away to earn money working with both. I invested in the camera and you invested in me. I am so thankful to those who have trusted me with [...]

Field to Vase Dinner Tour – Woodland WA {Event Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

Last weekend I had the opportunity to be the event photographer for the Field to Vase Dinner Tour at the Holland American Flowers - or as I call it the Tulip Farm in Woodland.

Ravins Family – Hood River, OR {Family Photographer Portland OR & Vancouver WA}

I'm a Northwest girl through and through. I love this area! When the Ravins family reached out and invited me to photograph them in their home town of Hood River I was excited! I love that town! I lived there when I was very small but I've always thought I would love living there again (except there's no Target, PDX and the beach are too far away)  8-O  But besides that it seems pretty perfect! It is an awesome place for a photo shoot! Love the historic downtown, the river where we shot this time. But there is so much [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
