The Moyer Family || Dorris Ranch, Springfield OR || Lifestyle Session

This session made my heart happy.

I’ve known this girl for 22 years.. we’ve been through a lot together and nothing makes me happier than being able to capture her beautiful family and the joy that radiates amongst them all.

I think its easy to allow the day to day to get us down, it seems everyone is always going in 100 different directions. Sometimes it’s hard to slow down and see the beauty within your own life.

And that is precisely why I love what I do so much, I want to be there for those moments. The ones that make all the other stuff worth it. The moments that make your heart just almost burst.

This entire session made me feel that way.

The Salazar Family || Council Crest Park, Portland OR || Lifestyle Session

I had such a great time meeting this sweet family. Wesley absolutely stole my heart with those bright blue eyes and that gorgeous smile! We started the session in his nursery, than moved on to their neighborhood park. I love photographing families in their “spaces” (homes, parks, places they frequent) I always feel it adds another element, makes it extra special when the location means something.

If it’s felt like I haven’t been around lately…it’s because I haven’t.

This sweet bundle arrived January 27th and turned our world upside down in the best way possible.

untitled-77

She stole our hearts from moment one.

untitled-95-3

And we knew…life would never be the same again.

I’ve spent hours upon hours staring at her perfect face. And even more than that kissing her sweet cheeks and tiny hands.

untitled-27

She’s been growing so fast. She needs to slow down.

untitled-39

I could spend forever marveling at the wonder that is her.

untitled-70-2

But I’ve also been starting to miss work.

So as my sweet girl approaches her 3 month birthday, I know it’s time to jump back in.

Thank you for your patience as I took the time to bond with this cutie pie.

Fun with Marley at 5th St Public Market | Eugene, OR

This family, gosh I love them. I get so excited when fall rolls around and it’s time for our annual shoot. This year we decided to head down to 5th Street Public Market and I am beyond in love with how these images turned out! It kind of helps that Marley is seriously the cutest thing ever —- I mean come on! Is she for real?

We had such a fun afternoon exploring the market, taking photos and eating sour patch kids, of course. Here is a handful of my favorites.

Rustic Fall Session with the Anderson Family | Eugene, OR

It’s always such an honor (and slightly nerve wracking) when a fellow photographer asks you to photograph her family. I have known Stacey for quite some time now, having met years ago when I worked with her sister in insurance. Over the last three or four years we have had the chance to shoot together at a handful of weddings and I have had the pleasure of getting to know her better. Stacey is such a sweet, kind hearted soul. When I was pregnant with Harper she took our maternity photos and last year after her youngest, Alex was born I went to their house to shoot her newborn photos.

I was SO EXCITED when she contacted me to do some updated photos this fall. I knew I would end up loving whatever we came up with and I was definitely not disappointed. The relationships within this family are so special, they are so kind to each other, their love is so abundant. Choosing which photos to preview here has been a task because I LOVE THEM ALL.

Mason’s Pumpkin Patch Excursion Preview | Lone Pine Farms, Eugene OR

My good friend, and fellow photographer, Jamie had a baby and five and a half months later I finally got to meet him. AND I got to capture his first trip to the pumpkin patch! I cannot think of a better way to celebrate being 5 1/2 months old.

To see the world through the eyes of a child is an incredible thing and this little guy was so curious about all of it! Capturing the first time he felt (and okay tasted) hay, a pumpkin, the grass…I just loved it all! Here is a little preview of our fun afternoon!

Kephart Family Preview | Lone Pine Farms, Eugene OR

I just love watching this family grow up. Not only are they a fun, gorgeous family of four but they are some of our best friends so any excuse to see them is always a plus! It’s hard to believe its been almost six years since our first session.  We had a blast hanging out at Lone Pine eating apple cider donuts and choosing the best pumpkin.

Did I mention how much I love this family?
