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 [...]


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 [...]


Happy 1 year to me!

That went fast!!! While I have been a full time photographer for almost 3 years I moved into my little space in Old Town Battle Ground a year ago!  At the time I had signed a 6 month lease and thought "why not?!" I'll give it a whirl and if I have to close up at 6 months I will. As I reflect back on the year there were a few times I really came close to closing and moving back home. Those cold dark days of winter can be scarily quiet for a photographer... 8-O Happily I didn't and [...]

Ben + Tara = True Love {Battle Ground WA and Vancouver WA Family Photographer}

Have I mentioned I love my job?  ;-) Last Sunday I met up with Ben and Tara for their photo session.  The weather was perfect, warm with just enough breeze  to keep us cool and give Tara that awesome super model affect with her hair 8-)  Tara had requested that we do the photo session at Ft. Vancouver which I love! They were in the middle of  celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary. They had finished dinner and were heading for cheescake after our session. Ben and Tara are a fast paced energetic couple. Married a brief 6 months after they [...]


Variety is the spice of life

I get bored really quickly. I try not to! I try to live in the moment, savor the experience... and sometimes I'm successful with that. But more often than not I'm thinking ahead to what is next. One of the things I love about photography is the variety found in clients, locations, subject matter. This month I have found lots and lots of variety! I have done Senior sessions, graduations, professional head-shots, a real-estate shoot, two different events as well as a wedding and I love it! I love meeting new people, making new friends, being part of happy exciting [...]
