I am a very lucky girl, I have the word’s best job, great family, and a area to call home.

Even better is when thoes things combine.

Here are a few head shots of my ever so talented sister I took a few months back I neglected to blog. I loved working with her again, we had fun and made some pretty images if I do say so my self.

With the addition of my new studio space, I will now be offering more of these types of sessions. Creative types, let me know if you want to discuss studio or on-location headshots! I would love to work with you.

Sonja contacted me a while back to set up photos with her sweet little boy and family. When she said she found me through a dear friend (and fellow rad wedding photographer) and her super rad former neighbor (Portland’s Reining Radio Diva) I knew we would have fun with this session. We met at the family’s beautiful NE Portland home and played for a while, after a bit we ventured out to a local park. We scored some seriously beautiful weather! We had a great time bouncing around, following the little guy in charge and makeing some photos.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:


Sonja & Todd thanks again for being up for anything! I hope you like the sneak peek. Thanks for having me out to capture your beautiful family. I had a great time getting to know you all.  As a new client 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 darling little wallet brag book. Perfect for showing off a certain adorable family . So leave some love people!
