Black Walnut Inn Elopement Photos | Judy+Chris

Hey guys! I was off work this past weekend, but it’s Thursday and I wanted to be sure you had something pretty to look at! This is the lovely Judy and Chris, who had a sweet little elopement ceremony at Black Walnut Inn back in September 2013. These are a few of my favorites! I hope you are all having a scrumptious summer, and hopefully staying cool. Remember, I am on Facebook [probably more often than I should be] and you’re welcome to hang out. I am working with my designer, andView full post »

Tualatin Wildlife Refuge Senior Session | Sierra K.

If you were paying close attention, you might have caught a glimpse of this stunning gal back in May at my Powell Butte Spring Session. Well, she is graduating and I got to see her again for her senior photos! Our original scheduled date turned out to be totally cloudy, which works well for moody photos, but I’m so glad she decided to reschedule for the next sunny day! We got absolutely stunning sunlight, and I think it suits her personality perfectly. This chick had just gotten backView full post »

Baby J | Portland Family Photographer

YOU GUYS. Remember the W. family from a few weeks ago? Well, little baby J was born earlier this month! So, three became four. I got to see them all again, plus the awesome grandparents “Ama” and “Bumpa”. I swear big brother M. grew at LEAST four inches since last month. How does that happen?! He’ll probably be six foot two, and baby J will be walking by Christmas. This is a short post to tide y’all over until next week. I have so many pictures! But thisView full post »

Heat Wave

What can I say? I am an Oregonian. If it gets above 90ºF, my brain turns to mush. My little cousin up there knows how to handle it. He’s playing scrabble in his underwear. Smart kid. A couple nights ago, the air started to smell cool and fresh. In my sleep, I had to reach for a blanket and it was divine. I’m getting a lot more done now that it’s not a hundred degrees, so I’m keeping this post short and sweet because there is a lot happening behind the scenes! I’mView full post »

A Sweet and Simple Ceremony | Oregon Elopement Photographer

On Sunday I photographed the sweetest little ceremony at my parents’ home. My cousin Sergei, his girlfriend Ariana and their little one all have the same last name now. I’ve photographed a lot of big weddings over the last few years, and I absolutely love them, but elopements are a great reminder of the things that are really important. The two year old played the prelude on the piano ;). My mom played while my grandpa sang, and then he preformed the ceremony. There was homemadeView full post »
