I love maternity sessions, something about finding the beauty of a pregnant woman always makes me happy. It also helps with that woman is stunningly beautiful, and has an adorable adoring husband. From the way these two look at each-other, I can tell this baby will be very, very loved. Elsa was a joy to work with in the studio, and thanks to some random sunny February weather we even got to venture outside.

Here are a few of my favorites:


Elsa thank again for coming down to see me. It was lovely to work with you two. I can not wait to meet your little one.  I will have your whole gallery done here shortly. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek.




I have loved working with the lovely Daria, Portland’s local radio queen over the last few years, and of course with her whole team over at 105.1 the Buzz. Of course they are smart, witty and hilarious, but they are just plain nice people to be around. So when Daria’s team asked if I could come shoot their annual Say I Do Again event I of course said yes.

The event was super fun, held at the lovely downtown Hotel Monaco. I especially loved the delicious bites brought by Saint Cupcake. ( I may have had a few). All of the couples were lovely to hang out with, I am pretty sure we all had a great night.

Here are a few from the evening…

Were you there? Did I take your photo? If so you can go here to find your images, and get your free download!

Thanks again to The Buzz staff & clients for letting me capture the event. It was great fun, and lovely to meet you all!

It’s not often that I get to work with families in my very own neighborhood. Aside from just convenience, it is always nice to meet people in our small but growing town. The D family moved up a few years ago from Texas. Bringing with them their darling boy and now adding a sweet little brother to the mix. It was a pleasure to meet the whole family, and to spend some time with the boys. Birth brother was fully of giggles and character, and little brother was gentle and sweet as could be.

Here are a few of my many favorites from our session…

Lisa thanks again for having me up to your house to meet your boys. They are both darling. I had a great time meeting you all. As always I love to offer new clients a little blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post, I will throw in a set of little brag books on the house. Have fun!

    remember when - […] The shoot was a great way to get out and stretch our creative muscles on the “off season” and do a fun protect with a group of local wedding vendors. The shoot was picked up on “Ruffled Blog” and just recently I was asked again for use of the images by an online Magazine called “Sweet Violet”. You can see their latest issue online here, our photo is on page 119. […]


Once again the Price family is on my blog, you may remember them from one of my favorite & most fun weddings, and then more recently from their newborn session. Well it is time again, and this time Mr. M is back and even bigger and more adorable! Oh the smiles, oh the chubby legs, oh the silly faces! This little charmer is such a pleasure to have in front of my lens. 🙂

Here are a few of my many favorites…
