This little peanut was an absolute doll. She slept almost the whole time and was a perfect angel. She was 13 days old when I captured these photos a few days ago. She was a tiny little munckin at birth and she’s doing a great job eating and getting those cute little baby rolls. We did the session at my studio in Kelso. Having the new space is such a dream come true and so far every session I’ve done there has turned out great! While we were there, my dad came over to put up my new backdrop holders and helped me finish the studio area. I am SOOOOO close to being finished and I’ll be taking pics of it tonight!!!

Thanks so much for letting me photograph your precious bundle of joy. I hope you enjoy the preview!

oh how I love baby toes


her mama brought this cute little stuffed animal. Isn’t it adorable?!


M and her gorgeous mama

This beautiful couple are getting married next July 24th, 2010. They wanted something unique and different for their engagement photos, so I scouted out a brand new top secret location for their session. I’ve learned that I work best when faced with different environments. I think these turned out great and we had an absolute blast getting these photos.

Enjoy the preview!

blog3gorgeous light

blog4I’m in love with this field.

Apparently they’re in love with each other 😉


Thanks so much for a wonderful session. I hope you love your photos as much as I do!!

My step-sister Lynsay just had her first baby a couple of weeks ago. I got to take some photos at the hospital for them, but we finally had his first “official” newborn session this last week. He was an absolute perfect model for his aunty. He slept for a good couple of hours and I was able to get a bunch of great photos of him. He’s already model material. We talked about it before he was born so he would be prepared for his crazy auntie who takes lots of pictures. He didn’t seem to mind me much. Thank goodness!!

Thank you Mr. M for being so beautiful and perfect.

I love you little bean. Welcome into this world.


so precious


LOVE this face. Okay maybe it’s “aunty eyes” but he’s so stinking cute when he yawns…



sb5LOVE these


yup, Perfect.


look at those sweet baby rolls…



Lynsay’s favorite color is green. We had to include it somehow!!!

These little girls were a hoot. (yes, I’m an owl now).

Other than being so completely adorable, they were fun to work with!!! Meet Miss M who is seven and Miss L who just turned one. Their mom wanted to make sure she captured this sweet time in her little girls’ lives. Thank you so much for choosing me to do their photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!

sb3LOVE this storyboard

sb1Seven year olds are so much fun!! I hope her mama is prepared for all the boys that will be calling her in a few years….

Check out those sparkely eyes!!!


A perfect one year portrait!


This one is too funny not to share. She kept making this face over and over. I couldn’t help but take a photo.

I title it..

“I’m soooo gonna lose it right now if this stupid lady doesn’t stop making stupid animal sounds to get me to smile!!!!!”

Happy friday!

I’m going to warn you ahead of time, this will be photo overload.

I couldn’t help but post a ton from this amazing session. It’s not too often I get a family who wants a lifestyle session. When I do, I go kinda nuts with the photos. This family called me all the way from Seaside, Oregon to do their photos (I was beyond flattered). When asked if I would travel to do their session, I didn’t hesitate. “YES OF COURSE” I said while jumping from my seat. In our phone consultation we decided that we would get some fun lifestyle shots on the beach and then end with some pictures by the ice cream parlor. These types of sessions are what I truly love doing. I feel the most at ease when families are being themselves and I’m able to capture special memories.

Okay, sorry. I’ll get to the point.


I hope you enjoy this sneak peak….


the lighting was absolutely perfect for this session. A perfectly warm summer’s day.

I couldn’t agree more.
