Baby Cam had a bit of a scary start into this world. He stopped growing like he was supposed to and so had to be induced at 37 weeks. He was even smaller than a normal 37 week old baby though and came out at 4 pounds 7 ounces. But my goodness, what he lacked […]

Ahhh Oregon. Beautiful golden light, birds softly singing, seeds and pollen drifting lazily through the air (maybe that’s an allergic nightmare) Haha. But what a gorgeous scene. Walking uphill through the trees together laughing and panting, woeful of how out of shape we suddenly seemed. Then at the top and standing quietly just soaking in […]

The weather forecast called for rain. Thunder storms even, all day long. Kody and Ali’s first look was scheduled at 12:30 and their ceremony started at 2pm. We kept looking out the window while they were getting ready…. no rain. We drove to the location where we were hoping to do outdoor pictures. It didn’t […]

Jamin and Melisa are good friends of ours. Our families have been close for years. I graduated High School with Jamin and then he went on to go to college with Sam! 🙂 It has been so amazing to watch them grow in their love story and now become parents. Melisa had an extremely hard […]

Daisy. Such a sweet, spunky, and delicate name. I absolutely love it! Photographing this beautiful family was a dream. Jocelyn is a rockstar and had a C-section just days earlier, but looked amazing! It was so sweet to see Sean and the boys take care of her and brand new Daisy. Her brothers just wanted […]

Sarah and Josh were so much fun to hang out with during their engagement shoot! They were sweet, goofy, and joyful. You can see their love for each other so clearly and I am so excited to photograph their wedding later this summer!

Okay, this is one of the biggest decisions that impacts how your wedding day will play out. Maybe you’ve heard of the traditional first look down the aisle vs. the private first look before the ceremony and you aren’t sure which one you like more. Well let me explain the three key reasons why a […]

This was definitely one of my favorite weddings to date! I think it was more special because I grew up playing softball with Shelby. Her dad, Steve, was our coach and I have so many good memories of that time! When I got the call asking if I would be able to photograph Shelby and […]

I love family reunions. They are chaotic, fun, and usually include a melt down or two. Haha but that’s what family is, right? I love to get a variety of posed group shots and fun, candids. This beautiful family got to enjoy a perfect coastal evening together and I’m so glad I got to be […]

I did Lisa’s family pictures with her and her three kiddos last year, but this year they added two new members to their family! Derick and Sole fit in perfectly. Derick and Lisa will be tying the knot soon and I am so excited for them! This beautiful family makes pictures so much fun. <3
