Andrea and Josh are hilarious. They are smart, funny, witty and so very Portland. I mean really they wanted to show their love for the Portland Timbers, Artisan Ice Cream and Locally Brewed Beer in their session… SO very Portland in the best possible way. Really these spots are not just beloved by Portlanders, but special to this couple. The Brewery was the location of their first date. The ice cream shop is a favorite dessert pit stop, and they are huge Timbers fans. It was so fun to see these two in their element, and sharing a foggy afternoon with me.

I had a great time, I am so looking forward to their summer wedding.:)

Check out a few favorites…

A&J thanks so much for spending the afternoon with me. I had a blast with you guys! I hope all of your wedding planning is really coming together. I will have the whole set done very soon.

For now I would love to throw down a blog contest, if you are interested. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post, I will throw in an 11 x 14 wall print on the house.

So leave some love folks!

I had so much fun getting to know Caitlin & Russel. We recently spent a foggy morning chatting, laughing, and walking around their alma mater Linfield College. These guys had some great stories!  We somehow avoided the rain with perfect timing, and shared so much laughter. It was such a lovely morning.

I am so looking forward to their wedding this year!

    Amy D - Congrats Caitlin and Russell- the photos are fantastic- love the colors and the structures! And as Emily G knows, I am a sucker for a comment challenge so fitting that I get to leave the 1st comment ;)


As many of you know I share a studio space in NW Portland with couple photographer friends. Over the years things have shifted and changed, and recently we added to our share a group of amazing women. The ladies of Brave Birth Doula Care have been wonderful to get to know and work with the past few months.

It was my pleasure to work with them this past weekend on their studio open house. I got to meet so many sweet families and babies! I set up just a little corner photo booth/mini session area to welcome them into the space. It was a great morning filled with love and cute kiddos. I really look forward to working with these folks again!

Oh man I love watching families grow, and especially these guys. Always SO fun to capture, and so full of life. Their home is always beautiful too. It all started years ago with sweet baby Liam. I got to capture him as he got bigger, and bigger. And now he is a big brother! And such a good sweet big brother to boot. Baby M is just as adorable, and so fun to capture.

Check out a few from our session together in their lovely home.
