June… it is traditionally a huge month for weddings, but here in the northwest of course we have do do things differently.:)Here in Oregon, at least in my experience, wedding season heats up late July and really gets busy in August & September. I see why, our weather tends to be better, and less chance of rain makes for great photos. But there is something romantic about June. The spring flowers are still bright, the grass is still green. I love June. Maybe I am sentimental as it is also the month I had my first baby.:)Either way I love June! So if you or anyone you know is having a June wedding get a hold of me! I still have lots of availability in June and early July, and would be happy to add to my calender. I will be offering the first two lucky couples a special booking discount as well. So lets talk wedding people!

I love it when couples order albums! Designing albums is one of the most fun parts of my job. I love the story telling it brings, and reliving the wedding. Sometimes it can take a while for a couple to order their album, so it ends up being quite the stroll down memory lane. Scott and Brynn were married 2 summers ago at the oh so beautiful Mt. Hood Bed & Breakfast.  You can see the blog post here. As I design this album and I remember how much I loved this wedding. I will be back in the Gorge to do a wedding of some of their close friends this summer, I am sure Lily & Calder’s event will be just as amazing! I do have several spots still open for this summer, and many for 2012. If you are planning a wedding call or email me today. I would love to capture it for you.:)

    Lilly - Like!


Does it get better than a cute baby girl? I am not sure it does. Little Lucia was sweet, funny, and full of life. When her mama said she loved the rustic look I took the chance to take them to one of my favorite local parks. We had a great time running around after a certain baby girl, talking about puppy love and enjoying the sun. After running around the park we headed to their darling home and took some more photos. Lucia was adorable showing me her room and introducing her beloved puppy.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Shannon thanks for contacting me and sharing this fun time with your little lady. She is absolutely darling! I had a great time getting to know you all. I hope you dig the sneak peek. As a now client I would would love to throw out a comment challenge for you all. If you can get 30 comments on this little post, I will throw in set of cute little brag books on the house. So leave some love people!

We all need a reason to smile Monday mornings right?

My reason this fine morning is I get to start designing Sarah & Nick’s album today! I just adore these two. You might remember them from their engagement session here, wedding here, and extra special doggie session here.

It is going to be a fun album to design!
