I love capturing growing families and especially when there is an extra special connection. Nicole and I met in high school and our lives intertwined again recently when my son began going to the same preschool as her sweet daughter Mikayla. That said, I was delighted when she asked me to document the arrival of their second child, Ryder - now already a month old! Each time I photograph a maternity session I fall more in love with the process. And seriously, how could I not?!
Kelsey and Josh - It's not every day that you meet a couple that epitomizes everything about young love. These two began dating in high school, went to Oregon State where she danced, and just this summer they were married in a beautiful ceremony at Gallon House Farms in Silverton. I don't typically blog bridals specifically, but these two hit it out of the park, so I wanted to share more. Here is a mini-blog post featuring many of my favorites. Congratulations you guys!
Often times pictures can take the place of a thousand words. This may sound a bit cliche, but in the case of the Manchik's, the saying holds true.

I believe these images capture some of their love story (at least I hope so!) with their amazing little guy, Lev. Enjoy. #baby #rustic #scenic #love #romance #family #couples #portraits #marria

For an Oregon summer, the day was perfect; with clear skies and just enough of a breeze to cut the heat. Beth and Eric are a couple that most photographers dream of shooting. They were absolutely stunning and their happiness and love for one another was felt throughout the day. It was difficu
Patrick and Sarah share a love of Japanese culture and originally hoped to shoot their engagement pictures at the Japanese Gardens in Portland, OR. However, after learning that portrait photography was prohibited at the Gardens, we shot at the next best place (and coincidentally right across the street!), the International Rose Test Garden. We caught a few amazing shots before the much-welcomed rains prevented us from finishing. We followed-up the second half of the shoot a
Callie and Jacob were married last summer and were my first "official" clients when I jumped into the craziness of wedding photography. They took a leap of faith allowing me the opportunity to document their day (having only worked as a second-shooter previously!) They were married at Oakview Acres in Canby, OR and their wedding was right up my alley...country-rustic with a pop of glamour! Callie made the most beautiful bride and Jacob the best love-struck groom. Throughou
