Wednesday + Nicky // Raleigh Engagement Photographer

I had the most gorgeous evening with the most gorgeous couple tonight.  Wednesday and Nicky were an incredible joy to photograph! Be prepared for A LOT of smooching, folks!  After our original plans got foiled (a wedding was taking place!), they were up for a quick location change and what was captured was absolutely magical.  I love their free spirits-and at the same time how grounded they were in each other. Army life has made their distance a challenge, and so it felt a bit like I was watching a scene out of a romance movie once they were in each others arms again.

We arrived last minute at the Historic Oak View County Park and it was just as dreamy as everyone says.  A quaint cotton field, white fences, huge Oak trees–I mean, what could be more romantic?  After we parted all I thought was that I wish this sweet couple the most joy a lifetime together can bring.  They represent what LOVE looks like so beautifully.   Gosh, I love my job!

A Whole Lot of Kisses

Be prepared for a whole lot of kisses and love and romance and the sweetest couple celebrating their One Year Anniversary.  We took these photos on their actual anniversary which made it all the more special.  It was cloudy all day (which I love with diffused light) but the sun suddenly came out with all it’s dreaminess at the end of our session and I am so in love with how it captured their happiness. We traveled around charming Downtown Columbus, Ga and celebrated with historical cobblestone and quaint brick.  I loved every minute of it.  Congratulations, guys.  Your adoration for each other is something special for sure!

Autumn in the South // Columbus, Ga Family Photographer

Having just recently transplanted from the the NW to the South, I started to think that Fall was simply part of my old life  But look!  It’s here!  It’s colorful and even chilly!  I met this sweet family at Flat Rock Park in Columbus, Ga.  Their baby could not be any cuter–even with his serious nature we got some smiles.  As Thanksgiving approaches I recognize that I have so many things to be thankful for and I think photographing this cute family definitely made the list:)

It’s Family Photo Session Season!  Contact me quick for your session- I still have a few openings left soon enough to send out your Christmas cards!

A Whimsical Willow Tree Session // Columbus, Georgia Maternity Photographer

On route during my recent move from Portland, Oregon to Columbus, Georgia I stopped in Oklahoma to photograph my sweet cousin and her growing belly.  She wanted a Willow Tree in the background and found the most gorgeous spot with a few of them.  What transpired was ethereal and beautiful and I can’t take my eyes off her photos.  There is something so sacred about photographs of expectant Mothers, but somehow these elevated to so much more.  I can’t wait until you get to hold that sweet baby boy in your arms, Jensynn and Carter! Congrats!



Chasing the Sunset // Portland Maternity Photographer

I had such a good time galavanting across the countryside with these two (soon-to-be 3!).   The fact that this beautiful landscape is in our suburban backyard is just mind blowing and the look of love with these parents-to-be made it only more dreamy.  Adrienne and Jeff were such good sports as we chased the stunning sun-setting light and probably most definitely trespassed a teeny tiny bit with the getaway car ready and waiting.  I would do it again in a baby heartbeat:) #worthit #hotmama
