Friends.  Last night…did you catch that glowy sunset?  I was lucky enough to be out in the fields around Newberg for a family photo session and we got some GLOW!  Jenni reached out to me for family photos because their oldest daughter was headed out of state for college soon.  They wanted to be sure […]

This sweet family is in a season of change: graduation parties, college acceptance letters, and new homes!  When Emily contacted me about gifting a family photo session to her mom, I was so excited for them!  Of course, I always think that family photo sessions make good gifts, but it’s especially thoughtful when kids gift […]
