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.

A Blue Eyed Family Session // Portland Family Photographer

I had no idea that the roses were still in bloom at the International Rose Test Garden and it could not have been more beautiful! I loved meeting this cute family there and really capturing this lovely Fall season in Portland. Their little man just turned 1 years old and he was simply adorable! We got REALLY lucky when a dog passed by to capture his smiling attention for some photos because he was just about as wiggly as they come:)  They are seriously the nicest people ever and I’m so glad Jackie found me and asked me to capture their cute family!  I couldn’t love these photos of them any more. Jackie works as a News Reporter for KATU NEWS in Portland for so make sure to tune in to see her hard at work:)

A Family with a little Country // Portland Family Photographer

This session was absolutely darling!  We met at Columbia Farms on Suavie Island and it was such a perfect backdrop for this cute family to play.  The kiddos were the SWEETEST and so in love with their new baby brother.  I should have counted the kisses that happened just within an hour:)  Everything from the hay bales, the colorful backdrop of dahlias and the flourishing Autumn fields made this session SO dreamy. My favorite part was driving off in my car and then seeing “Elsa” and “Batman” using their powers on Dad.  I slammed on my breaks quick to get that last pictures and I am so happy I did.

Smith Family Photos // Beaverton Family Photographer

I just loved doing a mini-session for this incredibly good-looking crew!  We had a few melt-downs from a certain sweet little girl, but looking at these photos you would never know:) It was quick, fun, and the weather cooperated for us which is always such a blessing in the Pacific NW.  And can you get over their stellar outfits? Such good style. I loved every minute:)

Fall Family Sessions are in full swing so contact me to schedule yours!

Walking on Sunshine // Beaverton Family Photographer




This session will always always always remind me of September Sunshine.  We soaked up every bit of light on this playful evening and I really couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful location to showcase their sweet personalities. Berry-picking farm?  Check.  Gorgeous light? Check.  Adorable Family? Check! Check!

I love my clients and I love that I have the privilege of capturing their interaction as a family through my lens.  There are many reasons why I like this cute bunch, but I’ll just name a few…

1. They like Chick-fil-a.

2. They are willing to camp out to be one of the first 100 customers at the said Chick-fil-a that is being built near us.

3. They got me an ice cream cone after the session, hence, future clients better step it up:)

I think that covers the most important aspects of our relationship.  And the fact that we are forever bonded through photographer-client privilege now (I’m not exactly sure what that means, but I bet it’s super special).
