It all started with a sweet chubby newborn, then just a few short months ago it was my pleasure to capture a growing baby, this time around he is full on toddler. Really how the heck did this year go so fast! This time we lucked into some fair weather, and happy boys at a local park. Owen constantly amazed me with his big brother skills, and Wyatt kept me on the move for sure with his fast feet and sweet smiles. We even got to sport daddy’s new motorcycle for a photo or two! I just adore these boys, as always the whole family was a pleasure to work with. 🙂

Here are just a few of my favorites so far.

Dani thanks again for having me out to capture your family. You guys were great to work with! It was my pleasure to watch your boys grow, and I look forward to seeing how big they get in the future! I hope you dug your sneak peek the whole set will be ready shortly. 🙂

Ok lets be honest for a bit, growing up I could not WAIT to get out of my small town. I was ready to live in a big city, with big things to to. Well I left, I traveled, I lived in the city, and in the end I came back. For many reasons it is still weird, but I do love my little town. So when I was asked to photograph an event here in my own hood I was happy to do it. The Camellia Festival was a great day, celebrating art and culture  in the pacific rim. The Chehalem Cultural Center is a great venue for it too, we are lucky to have such a great space with such a dedicated staff in our little town.

Here are a few of my favorites from the event:

back to babies & weddings very soon!

I mean really, me with a big camera, good looking couple and beautiful evening light, my job just does not get much better.

Emily & Christopher are planning a mid-west wedding back home, but wanted Portland to be the backdrop of their engagement photos. We started out in one of their favorite local parks, then strolled down to NW 23rd. I had a great time chatting with these two and just enjoying the beautiful night.

Check out some of my favorites so far:

Emily & Christopher thanks again for meeting me out. I had a great time chatting with you two, and wish you both nothing but the best in all of your wedding planning! I will be done with the set very soon.

Yet again the N family met up with me for photos of their adorable boys. It really has been my pleasure to watch this family grow. N is a super sweet & caring big brother, and new baby M is heart breaker cute. Really I could point my big camera at these people all day long. This time around we even lucked into some beautiful weather and fun spring flowers!

Enough of me blabbing, on to the photos!

Danielle, thanks again for meeting up with me and sharing your darling boys. I hope the big move is going well! I will have the whole set done for you very soon. I can not wait to see the new place here soon! I think some big prints of super cute boys are in order for the new walls!
