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.

I had way too much fun with the Sharp family yesterday! This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family and I was stoked when they agreed to meet me at my hidden park I’ve discovered. The fall foliage is stunning right now and we had a blast playing in the leaves and running around snapping photos.

It was one of those late May days that wants so badly to be summer despite the cool spring breeze that still lingers. I met Colin, Annie, their incredibly adorable daughter Billie Mae and their wonderful dog Teddy at their home to take some photos. Nestled in a charming neighborhood among the SW hills of Portland I loved everything about this in-home session. These types of sessions are some of my favorite to shoot because everyone is so relaxed and truly able to be themselves. I love capturing people in their “space” and always find the results so true.

I have been sitting here for weeks with this blog post in draft status. Each time I sit down to finish, the words somehow escape me and I am left staring at a blank screen. How can I adequately put into words what I felt while photographing this beautiful family.
This beautiful family of four who I have been blessed to call friends. This family who, to many will now only look like three. I could talk about the immense love they so clearly have for each other. I could tell you about the way Nick glances at Kate and you can tell she is his world. I could say they look down at their baby boy Eamonn, as if he hung the stars. Because all of that is true. But than there is this other side. The side I know too well. The look of longing, the pain in their eyes because part of them is missing. A piece of their heart is gone forever. They are so excited for family photos and if you didn’t know you would never know. To the world they appear the ever care free new parents happily doting on their sweet new babe. Because they are. But they are also dealing with an immense grief. A few months ago my amazing, courageous friends were forced to say good bye to their gorgeous son Ruan, Eamonn’s twin brother. How do you adequately put into words the joy and the love and the sorrow and the grief. The millions of emotions that swirl around your brain when your child dies. You just don’t.
There are zero words to say when someone loses a child. It just shouldn’t happen. But it does. This sweet life that was, but oh so briefly. He was here. He matters. Ruan. A strong name for such a strong little man.
I loved this session. But it was raw. I knew it would be an emotional session for me and it was. I admire Nick and Kate so much. I am honored to have captured their sweet family.

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.
