A Family in a Field of Flowers // Portland Family Photographer

Tonya wanted to capture her cute family in the beautiful Oregon landscape before they head off to Arizona after a 5 year Medical Orthopedic Residency.

She found the nearby field.  I brought my camera.

 It was MAGIC as the sun was setting after that…

A Dreamy Oregon Coast Session // Cannon Beach Family Photographer

As I was driving the scenic Oregon highway to get to this session I was so completely psyched at the beauty of the day.  It was a bit chilly, gray and cloudy, and the PERFECT conditions for these Colorado natives to capture their Oregon Coast Vacation as a new family of 3.  I am a sucker for cloudy days–it’s the perfect diffused light and the PNW notorious green landscape always pops with such deep and rich color!  Brynn and Zach were such a delight and their 7 month old baby Ivy is the sweetest!  I was in awe of the windswept landscape and the coast couldn’t have been a more ideal location to show their love.  This place is so dreamy, and I love that this awesome family wanted to capture a moment in time in such an ethereal way.

Among the Trees // Beaverton Family Photographer


This mini-session has me grinning ear to ear!  These two little girlies are simply adorable and I just loved capturing their cute smiles–and occasional frowns, haha!  Such a down to earth family and I loved spending this time with them.  I really like mini-sessions this time of year because it’s quick and painless on both parents and kiddos.  It’s what we all need during the holiday season and so I am happy to help out in any way that I can:)

A Practically Perfect Session // Destination Seattle Family Photographer

Photographing another Photographer can always be a little intimidating, but I choose to look at it as an easy break because our expectations on how a session should go are relatively pretty low:)  We understand and embrace that life is messy and unpredictable and how capturing those candid moments are just as important as the perfectly posed.  Tiffany is a rockstar in her field so it’s such a compliment that she chose me to take her family photos.  The most important thing to her was that she was IN them (a rare moment in our profession) and I think we nailed that and then some.  I adore the vast field and gorgeous Fall foliage that truly embrace the season.  I’m going to call this session that included melt downs, chocolate bribes, chasing, and a few tears…Practically Perfect In Every Way.
