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!

Sweet Sophia // Seattle and Portland Newborn Photographer

“Babies are such a nice way to start people.”
― Don Herald

I was able to recently drive up to the Seattle area to meet my new niece Sophia and she is absolutely gorgeous! She is so tiny and the perfect cuddler in every way.  My brother and SIL are such great parents and I’m so happy that this little babe decided to join our family:)  Her adorable older brother was MIA in this set of photos so I’m going to make sure to snag some of them together the next time I see them!

Trees+Water+Smiles // Destination Kirkland, Washington Family Photographer

I spent a weekend in the Seattle area doing sessions with my old clients and this family was such a joy to photograph once again! One of the great blessings of moving to Oregon is that I’m still close enough to make the trip back every few months. I love that this session captured the Eastside (Kirkland, WA to be specific) so perfectly–Evergreen trees, Lake Washington, boat docks, and a happy family.  The views all around make me so happy to live in the Pacific NW.

Normandy Park Cove Maternity Session // Destination Seattle Maternity Photographer



All the tiny details– from the homemade flower crowns to the matching mom and daughter brown cowboy boots– made this session so beautiful and organic. It makes me so happy that I was able to take Sharlie’s first maternity and newborn photos, and now her 2nd baby girl is on the way! I was so happy that she contacted me to document their story through my lens once again.  The location at Normandy Park Cove has been the scene for both maternity sessions (and their wedding!) and was just lovely. Capturing moments like these make me treasure the true joy in life.

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).
