Can you believe these pictures were taken in this Mama’s backyard?  It was so gorgeous and green and the epitome of the NW in the Spring. Alana was absolutely beautiful and so naturally at ease in front of the camera! I couldn’t get over how well behaved her two children were (m&m’s aside:) and it was so evident that she and her husband are amazing parents.  Although we just barely met, I am so happy for their baby to come into such a loving home. What a lucky girl!

I could not have asked for a more gorgeous evening to photograph this lovely Mama and her cute Family!  They are shortly inviting a little girl into their home and capturing this upcoming event could not gone any more beautifully. Selam and her cute belly were STUNNING.  I mean seriously, I felt like I just had to stand there with my camera and click and they would all turn out perfect. Their vibrant clothes and the colorful season truly brightened my day. I am so grateful to have had the chance to document their family of 3-soon-to-be-4 and I can’t wait until their sweet baby girl arrives! Photographs taken at the oh-so-perfect George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego, OR.

Hello, Hot Mama! This natural and romantic maternity session has such special meaning to me since I photographed Erin and Luke’s Wedding in Florida almost six years ago!  I feel so honored to document such tremendous milestones in their Love Story.  Their patience and perseverance have given them the gift of twins–a boy and a girl! These babes are already so so so loved. Erin will always have such a special place in my heart because she was my son’s first speech & language pathologist at Children’s Therapy Center .  Eight years ago she instilled hope and assurance into my Mother heart and helped me laugh through such frustrating circumstances. I hope that the joy and beauty shown in these photographs can repay her for that triumph in some small way. XOXO

PS!  The GORGEOUS floral crown was made by Monica of My Forever Crown whose work is outstanding! I was giddy with excitement as I took these dreamy photos with Erin wearing it.

I can’t get enough of these Mother’s Day Sessions!  I was so thrilled to photograph Iris and her darling kiddos, even if we did spend the majority of the time chasing that cute boy of hers! I adore the sweet glances-dandelion blowing-stealing kisses-fun, and most of all the love that is so evidently seen through my lens. 2015-04-03_00072015-04-03_00022015-04-03_00092015-04-03_00152015-04-03_00012015-04-03_00032015-04-03_00102015-04-03_00112015-04-03_00062015-04-03_00142015-04-03_00042015-04-03_00122015-04-03_00052015-04-03_0008

Spring has Sprung {Lake Oswego Family Photography}

This family was adorable!  It was such a perfect morning at George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego that I am officially in love with Spring! Between the ducks, water, and colorful blossoms I could not have asked for a better location. I was so excited before we even met because I have photographed both of his sisters and their families in Seattle.  I think I can officially call myself their Family Photographer, amiright? And can we talk about these little girls?  So. Flipp’n. Gorgeous. They certainly take after their parents:) Thank you Neeleman Family for such a lovely morning!2015-03-28_00012015-03-28_0004
