Yes, I know you’ve all been waiting for me to post pictures. I’ve posted a few on facebook the last couple of weeks, but none with a “real” camera. I’m still not *quite* done yet (few minor touches here and there) but overall it’s just about finished.

I’ve already had five newborn sessions in the studio and it’s been completely amazing to have all of my props handy. It’s also been really nice for client meetings and ordering appointments.

I’m so excited to finally have a place of my own!!! I’m still doing 90% of my sessions on location (so no worries folks, lemondrops is staying the same!). It’ll be nice to have a place to do sessions in case the weather is bad, or for newborn, kids, and the occasionally family session.

I will be having an open house sometime in the next few weeks. I haven’t finalized a date yet, but I will keep you posted when I do so you can come see the new place!!

Thanks so much for all the well wishes, prayers, and encouragement. I honestly feel like it’s a dream coming true!!!!

Aryn is totally an awesome girl!!! I’m mentoring her for her senior project on photography, so it was even more fun to do her session since we’ve already met.

We had her session out in Kalama and it was a blast! It’s nice to be getting back into the swing of things with senior sessions after a summer of weddings. I really enjoy seniors and have fun photographing them. Of course it’s really nice when they’re fun!!!

Thank you so much for having me do your photos, Aryn. I hope you love them as much as I do!!

asb5These are definitely in my top favorites of favorite all time sports photos.

Wow. Mouthful.

asb6Thank you Aryn!!!! You’re totally gorgeous!!!

If I could give an award for best dressed, this family would get it.

I ADORE their outfit choices for their little girl and themselves. It’s fun, it’s funky, and it photographed beautifully.

I met the “S” family out at the lake for their family photos plus Miss “A”‘s  one year photos. I couldn’t get over how cute she was with her outfit and her bow.

Thank you so much for having me do your photos. I hope you enjoy the preview!

sb1okay seriously, how cute is she??!!!!

perfect Christmas card.


Well, it’s that time of year again. The time of year when we have to start turning the heat on and it gets a little colder outside. It’s the time of year to start thinking ahead to the Christmas season.

If you’re like me, you like to send out pretty Christmas cards with your photo on it to all your friends and family. I LOVE getting Christmas cards and getting ones with photos are even better!!

So here’s my 2009 Christmas card designs:

Yes, that’s what my friend told me I was like. Normally that would be a strange comment, but for a photographer who tries to be stealthy when shooting a wedding, I try to be quite “ninja like.”

So thank you dear friend, for calling me “ninja like.” It made my day.

For your viewing pleasure, a few photos of me in action courtesy of my friend Elena.


that must be my thinking face. I’m not sure.

but its scary.


look I’m invisible!


I have no idea.
