Is there anything more adorable than a 4 year old girl with blonde ringlets?

Yes, yes there is, it is a 4 year old little girl with big blue eyes, blonde ringlets and the cutest British accent you have ever heard. This little darling comes complete with a super cute little brother with perfect baby blues and chubby cheeks to boot. I am telling you the cuteness was off the charts at this session. The whole family was lovely to work with, but the kids really stole my heart. We had a great time tromping around their best friends home here in Oregon during their visit to the states.  It was so fun to see these two little ones interact, and play for the camera.

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

Caroline, thanks again for making time in your vacation to see me. It was lovely meeting you all, especially your little ones. They are so adorable, and were so good for me. I hope the rest of your travels were fun, and you had a safe trip home. I will have many more images to show you very soon.

please be prepared…

this is going to be a long post…

Ok a super long post…

Ok really a massive post..

See the thing is that I adore Katie & Jim, they are massively awesome. They are funny, kind, full of energy and they know how to throw a wedding.  You might remember them from their engagement session not too long ago. Well the wedding was even more fun. The big day was held at the always beautiful Mt. Hood Bed & Breakfast above Hood River. The morning started out a bit wet, but gave way to a beautiful day. The entire property was perfectly set, and the mood was so fun to be around.

It was a wonderful wedding, and ended up with SO many photos. I warned you, get ready for a long one.

Katie & Jim it really was my pleasure to capture your amazing wedding. You two are so fun to be around, your love for life & each other is infectious. I wish you two so much joy in your life together. Katie I have to say that you were one of the most entertaining brides of all time. Your energy is infectious, and the chemistry between you & Jim was my pleasure to capture.  Jim you looked dapper as well, and you are awesome, but really your lady’s dance moves & bright stole the show.  It really was great to meet & capture your entire group of family and friends. I hope you have enjoyed your sneak peek. I will have many, many more for you soon. Friends & Family if you would like to see the entire gallery when it is ready please leave a comment below and I will send the link out when it is all ready. 🙂

    Theo - Hello! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us
    so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Wonderful blog and brilliant design and style.


How can you not smile at these two. Meet one of the cutest sets of twins I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The little mr & miss were darling, and the whole family was just adorable. Even with a last moment venue change we had a great time tromping around a local park on this warm summer morning. Talking about bugs, looking for fish, and giggling, allot of giggling. For real, my job is pretty amazing.

Here are a few of my many favorites…

Colleen thanks for meeting me out at the park, and being so flexible with all the timing & locations snafus. I think we ended up with a great spot, and had a good time. Your entire family was lovely to work with, and your little ones were adorable. I hope you have liked your sneak peek. I will have more for you very soon. For now I would love to offer you a little blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post, I will throw in a set of darling brag books.

So leave some love folks.

Check it out yet another beautiful belly! I just love maternity sessions, especially with lovely couples in stunning settings. Lee lives in Hood River and wanted to showcase her love of outdoors and the Columbia River Gorge. We met at one of my favorite parks and took some images of her, her growing family and beautiful belly right before sunset.

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

Lee thanks again for meeting me out in the Gorge. It was really wonderful meeting the both of you, and capturing this special time for you. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek! I will have the whole set for you very soon.
