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 [...]

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 [...]
