Early Morning Family Session
June 4, 2021 8:37 AM BLOG
I met the Bermensolo family at Champoeg State Park, near Portland Oregon, early on a Friday morning; the sun was shining and we had the entire place to ourselves. It was the stuff of dreams! Just hanging out in the tall grass, taking the pup for a walk, soaking in the scenery and getting some exploring in. We also had very deep conversations about marshmallows. Lol Such a super chill family and a relaxing, wonderful session. When there are little ones invo ......
Moody Oregon Spring Maternity & Family Portrait

It was raining. Again. My clients (the GORGEOUS Khemlani family) and I had agonized over whether or not to reschedule, but with no clear skies in the foreseeable future, we decided to just go with it. I'm so glad we did! The rain broke as soon as we arrived and started up again JUST as we were leaving. The stormy skies and even, overcast lighting created such a wonderful mood. When I was working on location proposals for Shinel and fam, her wishlist included somewhere with views, tall golde ......
Columbia River Gorge Family Portrait

With all of the idealistic New Years posts we have been seeing lately, I felt compelled to state the obvious. What you see on social media is not real, perfection is an illusion.

I thought this session illustrated the idea beautifully. This client is a very close and dear friend of mine and an ......
Andy & Zach’s Waterfall Elopement
October 23, 2019 7:30 AM BLOG
These gorgeous men were originally scheduled for a couples session, when Zach text me saying he had proposed to Andy, and would I capture elopement portraits instead? The answer was, of course, a resounding YES! I stopped photographing traditional weddings three years ago, and ever since then people tend to assume I no longer shoot elopements, either. Not the case! I still happily except elopement assignments and absolutely ADORE them. I met Zach,&nbs ......
Sauvie Island Sunset Family Portrait Session
June 19, 2019 2:49 PM BLOG
When I had the pleasure of capturing Nancy and Ricardo's maternity photography session back in April of 2018, I myself was seven months pregnant. I fell in love with this warm, funny, generally wonderful family. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when Nancy contacted me about a family portrait/one year session for Tiago. I took them to one of my favorite spots on Sauvie Island, where the grass is wispy and tall, and the sunset light peaks through the trees juuuuuuust right. With a balanc ......
