Turning the lens on Tuesday

I had a photo shoot with a sweet family this weekend. You may have noticed that I’m not taking many new clients right now… I’m working on extended maternity leave. Seeing the lovely little kids that I shot Saturday made me want to come home and capture some of what Tuesday is right now. Obsessed …

cut it out, gift it up

Our favorite twins turned two this week and we celebrated in style. I wanted to do something fun for their presents and decided to go with matching (well coordinating) tee shirts. Carmen’s husband came up with the idea to flip flop the colors for each twin and they came out great. The cow thing isn’t …

Newborn – baby M

This sweet little baby and his family were so fun to photograph. It was my first time using the poof, and a few other tools so Kristen was kind enough to come as my assistant. Mom found me via Google and since baby was already a week old when she called we didn’t have a …

Part of my bow pair.

I know you long time readers have heard me mention my “crew girls” many times. I’ve heard from some of you that you thought that meant my crew, as in posse. I call them crew girls because we rowed together at Oregon State. The summer between my Freshman and Sophomore years was my first as …

Your guess on pronunciation in the comments section

When Ceara was here for Christmas (yay!!!!) I was able to shoot her family. I know there are people I talk about over and over on the blog that you really don’t know, and Ceara is one of them. Ceara and I grew up together and really became close in middle school when she befriended …

And… begin!

Hello! Miss me? Because I certainly missed blogging. I have been so focused on this; my new site. Things like this are always more work than they look to be, at least I think so. I figured branding, new site, business cards, PDFs, care guides, contracts, piece of cake! Well the jokes on me. I’ve …

Scrapbooking and Shooting

Oh my those were some good family days. I love that most about the holidays, being together. My lovely friend was visiting from Vermont and I squeezed in a photo shoot for her on Christmas Eve morning. It was so dark and cloudy and yuck. But some creative furniture re-arranging and popping outside for a …

Salem Oregon Beach Photographer

Ha! I wish! For those of you who don’t know this area the beach is an hour away… and you can rarely get away with wearing anything less than a fleece. Yes, we’re back from a lovely Hawaiian vacation. So sorry if you were on the flight back with us and our sick daughter who …

Family Shoot on the Farm β€” Salem Oregon Child and Family Photographer

I squeezed in one more photo shoot a few cold weekends ago to capture my friend Karen and her twin 18 month old girls. It was so so cold, and the ground was very wet. But we lucked out and had clear skies. This is Karen’s husband; it’s his family’s farm. Love this one… the …
