I had the pleasure of photographing this little guy in his first few days of life (can be seen here), now three months later his blonde hair and blue eyes are mirror images of his sisters. These cuties were sweetly happy and a lot of fun play with.  These sessions with little ones always moves me as I see the true beauty of God at work.  Thanks for choosing me to catch these precious moments.
I’m extremely grateful to be able to do what I love so much.
I hope you enjoy your preview!
sb1blogsb2blogsb3blogsb4blogand because this one cracked me up so much, I just had to share!

You might notice a few things that are different around here if you’re used to coming to my site. I’ve completely changed my logo and I’ve added a new background paper.

This whole change has been in the works for quite some time. I needed a fresh look and something that reflected my style a bit better.

I’m still playing around with background papers and slideshow images. Don’t worry though, I’ll get it figured out!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Paul and Rachel tied the knot on June 6th, 2009 at The Community Church here in Longview, Washington. They had a romantic candle lit ceremony and were surrounded by their friends and family. You could tell they were both totally excited to be getting married. It was a beautiful wedding and every detail was absolutely perfect.

Thanks so much for having me photograph your big day. I hope you enjoy your preview!!


how girls get ready…


how guys get ready…


I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had with these folks. As my regular blog readers know, I don’t like traditional group photos. I’m always looking for fun and creative ways to photograph large groups. These guys totally made my job easy and fun!!

sb41sb51Paul and Rachel didn’t see each other before the wedding, so we had some extra time to get nice portraits of them by themselves.


sb10Mr. and Mrs. Strickland!


Congrats on your marriage, Paul and Rachel!!!


You might remember this handsome young man from his newborn session here or from his six month session. I can’t believe he’s grown up so fast. His mama and I are great friends and we often take our boys to the park to play together. My littlest guy is just a few months older than “B.” I had so much fun doing his pictures!

Thanks Bri for being such a great friend and a great mama to this wonderful little guy. And thanks Mr. B for letting me steal your wife to hang out!

okay seriously can’t resist this little face. How cute is he?!!!



I’m in love with this golf shot. Total perfection!


I just wanted to give a quick sneak peak of Paul and Rachel’s wedding. I’ll have a complete preview up in the next week. I couldn’t wait to post just a few from their big day.

Thank you so much for having me do your photos, Rachel and Paul. I hope you had fun on your honeymoon!!!
