You might recognize this little cutie from his newborn photos not too long ago. Well little Mr Michael has grown in size and personality for sure. SUCH a cute little guy. Mama really wants to capture his growth so we got together a little while ago to catch him at his 3 month mark. I had a ball playing with this little dude, capturing his smile and loving on him. I can not wait for our 6 month session!

Here are just a few to show off:

Terrie I will have the rest up very soon!

Hey Ya’ll! I hope  you all are surviving the crazy Oregon weather. Snow, rain, sleet, sun, you have to love spring in Oregon!

I wanted to blog this morning to show off a few images from my recent session for the ever so lovely Beth of she makes these ridiculously cute hairbands for little ones. I have had my eye on them for my own little lady and newborn baby clients for a while, so I jumped at the chance to work with Beth on a session. Check out a few of my favorites:



I also wanted to let you all know I have only 2 spots left in my spring mini session event this weekend! I would love to fit in a couple more cuties into my day, so if you are interested let me know asap!

    Dick - Great photos of a lovely and good looking couple! Great job on the pics Emily. Wish you were around when Mary and I were married. You would have been asked to take a few pics of our wedding as well. That was 43 years ago though.

    Wishing Jonny and Dana the best of life in their marriage and keeping God their primary focus.



Dana & Johnny are shnoogleicouse, what never heard of shnoogleing? Yeah it is a word they made up, and I LOVE it. I plan to work it into my every day life.:)


All made up words aside Dana & Johnny are adorable, funny, smart, and wonderful to spend a blustery spring day with. We had a great time hiking around Chamogne State park, giggling about shnoogle faces, and talking about their wedding just a few short months away.


Here are a few of my favorites from the session:


this by the way is shnoogle face, FYI


It was a crazy windy day, but these two kept each other warm.




The trees at Champogne are so beautiful, I am so glad these two made the trek out for me.


ahhh, they are so cute.


We also made the very muddy trek down to the river. I know Dana wanted to get some shots by the water.


we also found some great stone work at an old memorial. Perfect to put a cute couple in-front of.



Have I mentioned how cute these two are?


and one last shot of our happy couple.


Dana & Johnny, it was great working with the two of you! I wish you nothing but joy on your wedding day and in life. It was my pleasure to capture a little bit of love with my camera.:)As all new clients I would love to throw down a blog challenge for you! If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post, I will throw in an 11×14 print on the house! So leave some love people.

    Rochelle - A quick comment for Emily: I’ll confess I’ve been a lurker-follower of your blog since you took Welly’s birth pictures for Bryan and Leah (As a GFU grad, I’ve followed their blog for years…), so I was really excited to see you’d be taking pitures of people I know! Fabulous pictures, as are all of yours.

    Jonny: You two look great! Congrats to you and Dana– I wish you two the best in your marriage.
