Oh, friends.  This anniversary photo session that happened in Newberg last week.  It has a BEAUTIFUL story behind it.  Briana and Nick were DESTINED to be together.  They were born one day apart, in the same hospital.  Their birth announcements appeared in their local paper right next to each other.  So when Briana’s mom clipped […]

Anniversary

This morning, I posted some happy anniversary wishes to one of my favorite SSP couples, Lacey and Taylor.  They got married two years ago at Camp Turnaround, and I saw them just recently for an anniversary session.  I’m so glad they chose to do an anniversary session, and it got me thinking about all the […]

Do you remember Danielle and John’s summery Lake Oswego wedding at The Foundry?  Where they had the boatful of people cheering them on during their bridal portraits and I was 10,000 months pregnant?  It was so fun to see them again and reconnect this summer at their anniversary session!  We reminisced about their wedding day: […]

Last August, I blogged about this EPIC IDEA that I had in the middle of the night, just a few weeks before celebrating our own 8 year wedding anniversary.  I needed to gift my clients ANNIVERSARY SESSIONS!  By the time we’ve planned and photographed an engagement session and a wedding together, I am INVESTED in […]

Anniversary

So about a month ago, I had one of those moments of early morning total clarity.  I’d just woken up and I was thinking about what I needed to do and what I actually wanted to do that day, and about how it has been EIGHT YEARS since I started my photography journey.  And I […]
