Man I love it when friends ask me to photograph their families, it is always such an honor. But when that friend is also a talented photographer that honor comes with a little bit of nerves. Last time my friend had a baby it was my pleasure to capture darling little Willa, now they are back in-front of the camera with not one but two more sweet babies.

Vivian and Graem did not make it easy on me, not one bit, but I loved getting to know their sweet faces, their tiny quirks, and their pint sized attitudes. I especially loved the mad house crazy time that was family photos, Willa cracked me up! It was a challenge, you know me I love a challenge! I think we came out of it with some pretty cute images, and I personally have a whole new respect for parents of twins! I am so happy for these five lovely people and my dear friends. I look forward to seeing all three of these little ones grow up and keep their mama & daddy on their toes.

Here are a handful of my favorites.:)

Christy & Kurt thanks again for trusting me to capture your family again. Your newest babes are just adorable, and Willa is crazy adorable. I wish you all nothing but the best as a larger, and a bit louder family. I hope you all are getting more sleep and cuddles these days.:)

Look at this face, just look at it.

Gah this little guy did not really want to sleep for me, but man was he charming! He of course came with a house full of family that loved him, quite possibly the biggest dog in all of Portland, and a pair of baby blues that stole my heart.

I had a great time working with this sweet family, and loved meeting this sweet little man. I am so looking forward to seeing him grow up this year. Welcome to Portland little Ottis, we already love ya.

Man it has been quite the baby boom around here! I love it, all the beautiful new life is such an honor to capture. It is the perfect way to spend a cold winter day.

But summer time, that is different. I do love a baby in the summer, don’t get me wrong, but I love spending my summer days photographing beautiful weddings.

This week I spent some time on a beautiful new sample album for the studio. Mary Elizabeth & Mathew got married this past August at the McMenamin’s Gearhart Hotel. It was a beautiful weekend. You can see the full post here.

Here are a couple of the album spreads I put together, i can not wait to see the whole thing in print!

 

You can see the full album in the studio of course. If you, or anyone you know is getting married this summer have them contact me asap! I still have a few weekends open on my calender, and can not wait to get out there again this summer!

It was just 6 months ago we welcomed darling little Addie to the world. Before that it was my pleasure to capture her Mama’s beautiful wedding and maternity photos. Well miss Addie is back and even more adorable! She is so full of personality these days. We had a great time playing around the house and taking a quick walk outside before the weather turned. I just adore her sweet little face, and super sweet Mamas. This whole family had my heart.

Check out the cute!
