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!

I always look forward to photographing this family. They are so real. So genuine.
I’ve known Robyn for years, having grown up with her sister Traci, and reconnected with her and her husband Andy a few months after their gorgeous twin girls Lily and Emma came home from the NICU after having a rather rough start to their little lives. Actually a rough start is putting it mildly. During Robyn’s pregnancy they were given a less than 1% chance of their girls surviving. Although I was not in direct contact with Robyn at the time, Traci had shared with me what was going on and my heart ached for this family. Along with countless others I prayed daily that these sweet girls would continue to fight, I remember when Traci told me the girls had both come home from the hospital. I cried tears of happiness for the miracle that was these little girls. I immediately told Traci I wanted to gift them a photography session to celebrate this amazing time, the day so many told them would never come. Both of their precious baby girls had come home from the hospital.
We arranged a day to meet for that first session and the rest, as they say, is history. That was in September of 2012. Nearly three years and multiple photo sessions later I have come to know and love this family so very much. Robyn has been an amazing and true friend to me, being there for me in so many countless ways I cannot even begin to count. I love her as my own family and love watching her sweet kiddos grow up! It has seriously been a challenge trying to narrow down which photos to include in this blog post! I look at these photos and I see real life, there is no pretense, there is no posing for the camera.. Just them, being real.
For this session we decided to meet at a play ground connected to an old school along Coburg Rd out by Harrisburg. I knew it would be the perfect place to start, let the kids run some energy out and of course snap some amazing photos. After the playground we headed down the road about a mile to Andy’s cousin’s house where we caught some beautiful late afternoon rays and played in the field. “Wish” flowers were among a favorite of the kiddos that day as well as making sure we got some good photos with a beloved green frog that came along for the session. This family never ceases to keep me on my toes! I love how this fun and crazy session turned out.

They say time flies when you’re having fun and it sure has been zipping by!
It’s already January 16th?? OKAY how did that happen?
Well, I guess I kind of know how that happened…
I shot the most amazing wedding ever on NYE.
I spent a long weekend in Eugene meeting with clients and catching up with friends.
I’ve had a couple of absolutely adorable babies in front of my lens over the last few weeks.
I’ve been finishing up some gorgeous family sessions from the month of December.
And I’ve been cuddling my man and my puppy.
Along with moonlighting at a friend’s bar a few nights a week…bartending is hard to get away from!
Blogging is on my mind…and I keep meaning to get caught up. So for now a few of the gorgeous faces that have found their way in front of my lens over the last few months.

I love this family so much. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Robyn over the past year and am continually amazed by her beautiful spirit. She is truly lovely inside and out and I am just so happy to have had the chance to photograph her gorgeous family again! The first time we did family photos their sweet twin girls were only a few months old. Now they are 20 months old and on the go! Here are some of my favorite photos from our day.
