If you’ve been around this blog for any bit of time, you know my love of Champoeg State Park runs deep!  Do you ever have those places that just feel like home?  Places where you feel totally at peace and where it feels like you’re supposed to be there?  Champoeg is one of those places […]

Champoeg family photos - hillsboro oregon family photographer

Fall is HERE!  Which means it’s time to think about updating your family photos for holiday cards–and October is the perfect time to book to get fall colors in your photos!  I’m back from maternity leave and still have a few weekend dates in October available for family portrait sessions, so contact me today if […]

Lisa and Jason were married in June at the Lan Su Chinese Gardens in an intimate, sweet ceremony on the patio.  After a week of rain, the skies cleared for a sunny ceremony!  Lisa and Jason are totally meant for each other: both have such kind, relaxed souls and they spent the evening enjoying the […]

  This session.  Oh my.  A beautiful couple in love, a summery Oregon field on a warm evening, and some glowing light–all of my very favorite things.  Emily and Ryan drove out from Forest Grove, and I’m so glad they did!  We had such a blast walking around Cooper Mountain Nature Park in Aloha.  I’m […]

Trini and Travis are getting MARRIED in a few weeks at a super epic celebration that includes ROCK CLIMBING!  So, naturally, we had to create some super epic engagement photos!  We met up at Rood Bridge Park so we’d have plenty of space for them to hang out with their sweetheart of a dog.  She […]

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Lisa and Jason and their adorable daughter to photograph their engagement session!  We chose the Jenkins Estate in Beaverton for their photo session, so that we could take advantage of their beautiful gardens.  Lisa and Jason, congratulations on your engagement and I can’t wait for […]

This is one of my very favorite family photos.  My good friend and fellow photographer Halsey took us to Sauvie Island last summer and we finally did our own family photo session!  For years, especially before my son was born, I did elaborate setups with a tripod in front of our Christmas tree and then […]

Jenn and Joshua’s wedding at Yamhill Valley Vineyards in McMinnville was such a beautiful celebration!  The Willamette Valley wine country is truly one of my top five favorite places EVER, so I was thrilled to shoot there again.  We had a day of epic weather–thunderstorms that cleared for the vineyard ceremony, warm rain to dance in, […]

I loved planning this wintery maternity session with my friend Halsey over the holidays!  Since I met her, we’ve had so many photo session adventures (here and here, for example!), usually with our toddlers in tow.  This session though, we left the kiddos with sitters and headed out to McCormick Park in St. Helens for […]

I’m so excited to share this fall wedding at NW Portland’s St. Patrick’s Catholic Church today!  That moment between the flower girl and the bride as they were putting on their jewelry?  My FAVORITE!  I have been waiting to share that forever!  Thank you so much to Heather Fitch Photography for inviting me to assist […]
