The Gillies Family || Lifestyle Session || Portland Oregon

This session was meant to be. It took a lot of planning and re-planning to get us all in one place at one time. But when we finally did- magic happened.

We had, maybe 20 minutes before the sun would fully set and we were headed to a location I had never been. I’m not gonna lie I was a little worried.

As you’re about to see, I shouldn’t have been. I love every image of this gorgeous fam<3

The Krueger Family || Lifestyle Session || Portland Oregon

So many amazing sessions this fall! I’m a little late but determined to get all of these beautiful sessions posted!

Amy + Chris and their two beautiful kiddos, the day ended up way chillier than expected but the sunset was gorgeous and they were troopers about the cold!

Happy 5th Anniversary Lily + Arya!

Five years ago today I photographed the most beautiful, most magical wedding.

And today I share with you some beautiful images of this family five years later ( I may have to share some wedding photos too….they are still my absolute favorite!)

Omi is the sweetest, silliest kid and I absolutely love our yearly sessions catching up with this family!

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.

The Barker Family || Portland OR || Lifestyle Session

The annual photo update for the Barker family couldn’t have been sweeter. I love when get to watch kiddos grow up through my lens. We’ve been doing family photos ever since miss Zoey was about six months old. It’s hard to believe she’s going to be 7 in March!

Studio Sessions || Have My Heart || Portland, OR

A while back a client of mine contacted me with a vision of something simple, something laid back, something to capture this time in her and her girls lives.

“What about a studio session?’

I had been swooning over a natural light studio in SE Porltand for some time and this seemed the perfect opportunity.

Dana was in and we started planning all of the details.

Let me tell you, I didn’t realize quite how much I would love the results. Because I am obsessed!

Living in Oregon, once the rainy months hit it can be difficult to plan outdoor shoots, I love in home sessions but this gives another option. Its such a beautiful space.

I’ve decided going into 2020 I will be offering more studio sessions, possibly a mini session day! Stay tuned for details on that, but in the meantime check out these dreamy images and contact me if you’d like to get your studio session booked!

Piper Addison January

untitled-75

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

untitled-94-3

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.

untitled-127

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.

untitled-2

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

untitled-5

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

Coming up this week I will have the adorable Duke up on the blog!

 

 

 

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.
