To say that Bjorn and Dominique are super cute is kind of an understatement. To say we laughed while taking these photos would also be an understatement. We had so much fin hiking around Rocky Butte park, talking about weddings, families and dogs. We really did laugh a lot, I think Dominique wins the prize though for cutest giggle face.I could go on and on about how charming , funny and utterly in love these two are, but for now I will just leave you with the photographic proof.

Here are a few of my many favorites from our session..

Bjorn & Dominique thanks again for laughing at my cheesy jokes, and being so fun to work with. I am really, really looking forward to your wedding in just a few short weeks! I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek! For now I would love to offer you a blog comment special. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post i will throw in an 11×14 wall print on the house. So leave some love people!

    Heather Rosewarne - I just googled bjorn and dominique to find their wedding website and found this website instead. It is SO GOOD to see! I have yet to meet Dominique, but in the years of friendship with Bjorn I have never seen him so radiant! What fabulous pics!

How has it been a year since I first captured darling baby Brin? Her newborn session was one of my favorite last year, and here she is a darling, giggling, toddler! Just look at those curls, and those stunning blue eyes! Gah she is so cute it is just too much. I had a great time playing with her and Grandma & Grandpa’s farm in the Banks Hills. Warm day, nice people, cute baby, I really have the  best job ever.

Here are a few of my favorites so far…

Tasha thank you again for trusting me to capture Brin’s first year. She is just darling, and it has been great working with your entire family.  I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek. I will have the whole gallery for you here soon!

When Matthew & Alyssa first contacted me they let me know they had already done engagement photos with a photographer friend of mine. Due to her pregnancy timing she was unable to do their wedding. At the meeting we totally hit it off, and I was super excited to do the wedding this fall. As I said before they had already done some beautiful & romantic engagement photos, but as I always say none of my wedding clients get out of the pre-wedding portrait session, so we thought outside the box for our time together. The day of our meeting I had stumbled upon a quirky store down the street from my studio. The Portland Fixture Store really has a little bit of everything, shelving, signage, mannequins of all shapes & sizes, and so much more. I half jokingly brought it up to Mathew  & Alyssa as an option and they totally jumped on it. I LOVE an adventurous couple!  We had so much fun checking out the store and taking fun photos. We also ventured outside in the neighborhood and even down the street to Lippman’s Party Store. Such a fun day!

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Mathew & Alyssa thanks again for meeting up with me for photos, and being up for anything. I am really looking forward to your wedding this fall! I know it will be an amazing day! For now I would love to offer you a blog comment special. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post i will throw in an 11×14 wall print on the house. SO leave some love people!
