This little angel slept for THREE hours during our session. He was a one in a million baby and I could have photographed him all day!!!  He’s the youngest of four kids and fits right in, I’m sure.

I had such a great time with him and his mama. I’m truly blessed to have all these little babies to photograph lately!!!



they’re both smiling!!!


love that scrunchy face



SO exctited to get this photo. I’ve tried with three other babies, and he’s the first that cooperated!!!

I had a blast with these two for their engagement session!!! They traveled all the way down from Seattle on a Saturday. The day happened to be RAINY (of course, LOL). So instead of rescheduling, we made it work.  They were such troopers while we went from location to location finding fun spots to photograph in that wouldn’t leave them soaking wet. I think it ended up being a really amazing session and I couldn’t have planned it more perfectly.

They are getting married in July and I can’t wait for their wedding!!!!

Thanks so much Krista and Ian for a wonderful morning. I hope you love your photos as much as I do!!!!


they are so perfect together


these are some amazingly good looking people right here!!




blog9so fun!!



Krista, you are absolutely stunning.


Hellooooo beautiful family

(another favorite)


What can I say? I love putting dogs on chairs. Especially cool dogs like this one.

I had the opportunity to spend a morning with this beautiful couple, Orrin and Betty. They will be celebrating their 70th anniversary in September. Yes, that’s SEVENTY years.

When I was contacted to do this session I was overjoyed with the opportunity to meet such a couple. It’s a rare thing for people to be married that long, let alone still being in love. Just watching the two of them interact brought tears to my eyes. They practically finished each other’s sentences and would gaze at each other lovingly while the other was talking.

I took photos and they told stories of their lives. They have three children, eight grandchildren, a “whole bunch” of great grandkids, and one great great granchild.

My life forever changed when meeting these two. I hope someday to celebrate my 70th anniversary with my hubby.

Just a warning, these two may melt your heart and make you cry. Have tissues handy….

I’m trying to get caught up on editing all these beautiful photos, but wanted to give you a super sneak peak on one that I really love.

Baby “B.”

I got to photograph the most beautiful pregnant gal this last week. She’s got the perfect little belly. Her and her husband were wonderful to work with and we got some amazing images.

I’m so excited to meet their new little on in March. I hope you enjoy this preview of their session!
