Oh friends, this session! The adorable family. The light. The dog. The swishy dress. The perfect little cheeks on the baby. I can’t even. Megan contacted me for a light and airy family photo session and I loved working with her on all the details to make that happen! We chose a field in summertime […]

This summer has felt like the summer of families bringing their DOGS to sessions and I’m SO FREAKING EXCITED about that!!  If you’ve read my past posts about family pictures with a dog, you know I love those doggos, and I adore when families include their pets in their sessions. It involves a little extra […]

Since we live in the beautiful (and rainy) PNW, I spend a good deal of my time watching the hourly weather forecast during portrait season!  Fall sessions in particular are pretty likely to get some rain during them.  I’ve written a little bit on how a rainy session could unfold here, and shared a rainy […]

Playing catch up on blogging fall sessions is just fine with me, because I get to relive all of these incredible moments with my beautiful fall families!  This sweet family showed up for their family photos in Newberg ready to cuddle and laugh.  It was PERFECTION!  We always chat about what my clients want in […]

This week has been so fun, going through all of last year’s work!  I’ve been pulling favorites from each session and trying to narrow it down so this won’t be a GIANT post, but it’s so hard!  I was blessed with some adorable clients in 2019, who showed up ready to love on their families, […]

How is it already the end of November?? July through October is my busy season between weddings and fall family portrait season, so those months always go by in a bit of a blur! Now that things are slowing down, I’m excited to catch up on some blogging–I’ve been working with some freaking ADORABLE families […]

I love when a client contacts me with a vision for their photos that is totally in line with my style!  Alaina contacted me to schedule a relaxed, light and airy family photo session in a summer field and I was ALL about that!  Alaina helped that vision come to life with her family’s outfit […]

I loved meeting up with this sweet family to update their family photos for them!  We chose Cooper Mountain Nature Park for a fabulous field (you all know how I love a good field!) and that VIEW!  I grew up not that far from Cooper Mountain (hey hey, Aloha High School!) and even though this […]

It really is the BEST part of my job when wedding clients come back to me a few years after the wedding for family photos!  By the end of a wedding day, I always feel such a connection to my clients–they’ve become friends as we’ve walked through the wedding planning process together.  So when I […]
