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!

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!

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!
