I find it very difficult to show quick previews of wedding images. How does one summarize an entire day into a few photos? There are so many aspects of weddings.

So many details. So many stories, laughter, and tears.

Trevor and Angie’s wedding was perfect. I was truly blessed to be a part of their big day.

I hope you enjoy! More to come later!







When Ashley first booked me for her September wedding, little Ellie was just a tiny little baby. Now as the date comes closer to their big day, she’s grown so much and the love between their family has grown as well. Little Ellie has such spunk and she reminds me so much of my own little guy. Making funny faces and laughing. She is a pure delight!

They are getting married September 19th, 2009 at the Lewis River Golf course. From what Ashley tells me about her plans, it’s going to be an absolutely beautiful event. I can’t wait!!!!

Thanks for trusting me to do your photos. You were such fun to work with. I hope you love these images as much as I do!


The one on the right is my FAVORITE!!! I should post it bigger so you can see them laughing at each other. Beautimus!!!

akblog3how incredibly beautiful are they?!!!!

akblog4Perfect family.

Life is full of mistakes.

Since we are all human (and thus not perfect) we must all face the fact that we are wrong at times.

For some of us, it’s more often than others. I’m one of those that messes up quite a bit. I’m forever apologizing for my mistakes.

Saying ‘I’m sorry’ is sometimes the easy part. It’s the forgiveness that can take a long time. I’ve often wondered why someoneĀ  is still mad when I’ve said “I’m sorry” countless times. Of course, I’m guilty of not forgiving others at times.

‘to err is human’

or something like that.

But I still need to forgive.

As we all should.


I adore this family! I first met them when I did Carley’s senior photos (can be seen here). Since her and her older sister are leaving for college next month, Mrs. L asked me if I could do some family photos of them before they left.

Of course it’s no wonder where Carley got her gorgeous looks. Just check out the entire family!!!!


and I LOVE this next one…

(of course you know me and feet shots)


Thanks for having me do your photos!!!

After years of dreaming this day would come, I’m proud to announce that I’m opening up a studio!!!

We really didn’t expect it to happen so soon. Hubbsters and I thought it would be at least a couple more years, but things have all fallen into place and it’s working out better than I could have imagined.

I have an office/waiting area as well as a full studio set up (where I will do newborns, kids, and some family sessions). Nothing with my style will change, I’m simply adding a location where I can meet people. As much as I love meeting people at Starbucks, it’ll be nice to have a place of my own.

It’s located in Kelso, kinda off the freeway. When we’re finished renovating the office area, I’ll be showing photos and letting everyone know the location. Derrick has worked extra hard and put in long hours painting and doing the flooring (thank you honey!!). I’m picking out furniture next week and we’re hoping to be up and running by the beginning of September (at the latest October). It’ll be ready just in time for the cold weather. No more rescheduling due to yucky weather!! WHOOT!!

I also want to give a HUUUGGGGGEEEE thanks and a virtual hug for all those who love and support me.

I’m truly blessed to be in this position right now. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me and my little photography business!!!

and because my posts are worthless without photos, here’s a recent of Miss K in her fine swimming attire…..
