I met the Kennedy family a little while back while shooting an amazing wedding. They are cute, kind and hilariousness. I loved working with them that winter on family photos last year. When Nicole called again this year to schedule a shoot with just the kids I jumped at the chance.

We caught some pretty autumn weather and leaves this year for our backdrop. I am not sure how it is possible but the kids were even cuter, sweeter and even more fun this year. We are still getting used to the whole sibling thing in our house, so I love seeing siblings have fun and be so kind to each-other.

Here are a few of my favorites:


Nicole & Gabe thanks for bringing the kids up to Newberg this year. It was great seeing you all again! Your kids are adorable, and were so good for me. Please tell them to keep getting cuter and I will gladly tease them with my dumb jokes any time. πŸ™‚ I will have the whole gallery up here shortly. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek.




I love maternity photography.

One big regret I have in my life is I did not have maternity photos done with my first kiddo.Β  it was such an amazing time, so many big changes, and so much joy. The few snapshots I do have just do not capture it, oh well. So when I had my son almost 2 years ago (wow where did the time go!) I ended up having one of the most photographed bellies of all time. And I love each and every image. Knowing I will never be doing it again, I am so glad I captured it. πŸ™‚

So when I get a chance to capture this special time for another soon to be mama and couple I just love it. Becca andΒ  Ian were great to work with. They love the outdoors and wanted to celebrate this important time in the beautiful fall leaves. We lucked into some great weather a few weeks, and made some great images.

Here are a few favs from our session.


Becca & Ian thanks again for being suck good sports, and up for all my wacky ideas. I really loved working with you two. I can not wait to meet your little one here soon! The whole gallery will be up here shortly as well.




Sometimes it just clicks.

A beautiful baby

A loving & sweet family

A stunning home with great light

And decor & textiles that make you swoon.

Sometimes it just clicks, and this was one of those times.


I met up with the F family to capture baby Arlo in his newborn stage. Being slightly older than my average newborn I did not know how the session would go, but man he was good for me! He is sweet, gentle and over the top adorable. The was also lucky enough to be born into a stunning Portland home filled with good art and fun textures. His room alone made me swoon. πŸ™‚ I am SO looking forward to watching Arlo grow over this year and getting to know his whole family more.

Here are some of my favorite images from our time together.

Meaghan & Ben thanks again for having me into your home. Your precious little boy was a pleasure to capture. I had a great time chatting with you two as well. I am so looking forward to working with you all over the next year. This time next year lion coat! I hope you have enjoyed your sneak peek. I will have the whole set for you very soon. As new clients I would be happy to offer you a fun little blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post I will throw in a darling set of little brag books on the house. πŸ™‚
