SebastienΒ was such a sweet boy for me. I expected nothing less from this wonderful family. You see this darling baby boy has a very important mama in my world. She is the smart lady who get my midnight calls when my own babies are sick. The trust between a freaked out mother (me) and pediatrician has to be a strong one. So when she asked me about photographing her brand new baby boy I was thrilled to give her a little something back. I even got to hang out with their adorable pup Phoenix. It was a pleasure to see them all together, and capture a small slice of the early days of a new family.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Shannon thanks again for coming in and sharing your sweet baby boy with me. I hope you are all settling in well, and he is letting you sleep a bit these days.Β  I hope you like your sneak peek. I will have the whole set done very soon. As a new client I would also love to offer you a little blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post I will throw in a set of those cute little brag books you checked out. So leave some love people!

    Kathy - That is a whole lotta coffee….YUM!!


i adore this family, it is just that simple.

You might remember them from a sunny day maternity session not too long ago. Well this time the bump was gone, replaced with a sweet, smiley, darling baby boy. It was so nicely to see them all together. Eli was so good for me too. I could have pointed my big camera at him all day long.

Here are a few of my favorites from our session.

Shannon, Jory & family thanks again for having me into your home to meet your newest love bug. He is darling. It was so great to see you all again. I am so happy for your family. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek. As you know I love my blog comment challenges. If you can get 30 people to comment on this little post I will throw in a set of darling brag books. I will have the whole set for you very soon!

When I first started chatting with Christine about wedding photography I knew we would get along. She is sweet, kind and so full of joy. Her smile is infectious. I was excited to meet her, and the super sweet fiance she had told me about. When I discovered they were George Fox students it made it all the more fun. We got to chat about our favorite haunts here in Newberg, the beautiful campus, and falling in love. These two high school sweet hearts were just so lovely to chat with, I was thrilled when they said they wanted to hire me for their wedding.


We also had a great time on the George Fox campus creating some fun engagement photos. Here are a few of my favorites from our session…

Christine & Willy thanks again for being so fun to capture. It was wonderful to get to know you guys. I am so looking forward to capturing your big day for you. As always new clients are subject to blog challenges. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in an 11Γ—14 on the house. So leave some love people!
