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

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 Salazar Family || Portland Oregon || Sunset Session

Okay get ready for an over share, because this family was so gorgeous, the light so perfect, I just couldn’t stop snapping.

I had a really hard time choosing which photos to share because I just love them all!

Without further ado, I will let these photos speak for themselves. But let’s just say I’m already looking forward to them scheduling their next session!

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!

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.

untitled-15-2

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