Just recently I had the privilege of capturing Danielle & Rob’s maternity session, they are always so lovely to capture.

Well the little family is back, with brand new Sophia! She was such a good girl for me. She is so fun to capture already. I am so looking forward to watching her grow up this year!

Here are a few of my favorites…


R&D thanks again for having me into your home to capture your darling baby girl. I hope you are all settling in nicely.:)

I will have the whole set done very soon!

It was just a few short weeks ago I was out on a sunny afternoon capturing a darling family of three.

And now this darling family is back, but with one special addition, a baby brother!

These boys were SO, so lovely for me. Baby brother was chubby and sleepy. Big brother was sweet, gentle and oh so patient. It really was quite ideal.

I could go on and on, but I won’t let’s just skip to the photos!




C & C thanks again for having me into your home to capture your family. Your boys are just so lovely. I am so happy for you all, and look forward to watching your little ones grow.

I hope you enjoyed your peek. The whole gallery will be up very soon! For now I would love to offer you a bit of a blog contest. If you can get 30 people to post a comment on this page, I will throw in a set of darling brag books on the house.:)

So leave some love folks!

There are many things I love about my home town, one is the Camellia Festival.

The Chehalem Cultural Center does an amazing job every year of celebrating the city of Newberg’s heritage, along with lots of pacific rim related arts, crafts, food, music, and performances. I worked for the center a few years ago, and was so pleased to be asked back to photograph the event.

It was an AMAZING day, filled with so much beauty and detail.

Check out a few of my favorites from the day.



If you are a local community member that attended, or vendor that took part in the day and want photos from the event please email me or leave a comment below. I am happy to share images of the day.:)

Just catching up with my “kind words” page and raided my thank you card box. I did not realize how many sweet words I had received from clients over the last few months. I feel like I am tooting my own horn, but it always makes me so happy to hear from clients. Photography is kind of a solitary thing Monday through Friday so it is always nice to hear from real live people!

Here are a few of the love notes I have gotten lately.:)
