Welcome TO THE

Ohhh, I was so excited for this session!  Whitney shared that it had been awhile since the family had family portraits done, and it was time to add the littlest girls to their family photos!!  We looked for a location with tall trees and glowy light and decided on the Jenkins Estate in Aloha. The […]

When one of my favorite families came back to me for this year’s fall photos, we decided to try the same location we’d shot at before (see it here!).  We wanted to make sure it looked different enough, but still had the field that they loved.  We used the beautiful field area at Cooper Mountain […]

It’s October and wedding season is slowing down, which means I have a chance to blog some of the fabulous things I’ve been up to these last few months!  First up is this totally gorgeous engagement session from early August.  Hailey and Jeremy planned a small courthouse wedding, and wanted to have some portraits done […]

Extended family sessions are so fun!  A lot of times, I think families really only get professional photos of the WHOLE family—grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, grandkids, everyone–at weddings.  Which is awesome and obviously something I enjoy, BUT–there’s a whole lot of life that happens before and after weddings!  There’s nothing better than photos like these […]

Extended Families

It’s been a while since I shot at Rood Bridge Park!  Every time I go back, I remember how totally magical it is, and this family session last week was no different.  It had been pretty hot all day, but then as I climbed the little hill into the forest, the most perfect, flowy-hair breeze […]

I love, love, LOVE when the family dog gets to come along to a portrait session!  I’ve had dogs my whole life, and since we don’t have one right now, it’s always a fun day to meet another family’s dog and make some portraits!  Molly and Pippin brought their A game to their family’s session […]

Let’s talk adorable couples in love.  Lacey & Taylor are IT.  They are getting married next year, and they are working through all of the wedding planning looking like this: her, snuggled in against his chest, or holding hands and laughing, and completely enjoying each moment with each other.  They’re a self-proclaimed super lovey-dovey couple […]

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 […]
