Archive for Maternity

So, I’m horribly behind on my blog for regular sessions and weddings, but I just HAVE to post the most exciting thing that’s happened in my life ALL year!!!

My older brother (my only blood sibling, older by 18 months) and his wife, miss Natalie had their first baby on August 29th, 2010. I was photographing a wedding when I got the news that I was an auntie to one beautiful little girl. I cried when I heard the news!!!!

Because I’m so far behind in posting, I hadn’t even posted their maternity session yet, but I figured I’d do it now and introduce the prettiest little girl I’ve ever seen (other than my own!).

I’ll be doing their first “regular” newborn session next week, so I’m sure I’ll be back showing her off a little bit more 😉


Natalie, you are GORGEOUS!!!


this is love.


these two are AWESOME. This describes their fun relationship perfectly!!!




not even fair to look that good while pregnant 😉


my absolute favorite. I can’t even explain how much I love this photo!!!



beautiful family


this photo of my big brother and his little baby girl just makes my heart melt.


okay, she’s ridiculously ADORABLE!!!!!!!!


her foot in his hand.

Thanks for letting me share my exciting news!!! I’m off to catch up on the rest of my work now!!!

I can’t even begin to explain how much I love the people I work with. Every single one of these sessions was a blast and the families are just incredible.

I’m about to get all blabby and emotional, so I’ll just let you get to the photos…. 😉


Miss H was one of my best friends in junior high and high school. It’s so exciting to see her expecting her first little one.

Pregnancy looks great on you!!! Can’t wait to meet the new addition!!


Isn’t this little bundle absolutely perfect!!!

His parents are totally awesome too. 😀


LOVE this one.



they’re both smiling.

this one’s my favorite.


HELLLOOOO canvas baby.


I’ve been photographing this little man for three years!!! He just turned four and I absolutely adore him and his family.

I can’t even believe how time flies!!


His mama totally “gets” me and my style and knows how much I LOOOOOVVVVVVVEEEEEEE lifestyle sessions.

Kids being kids.

Doesn’t get much better than that!!!!


I’ve had a record amount of sessions lately. I’m getting closer and closer to hiring a staff member just to keep up. I would like to publicly thank my AWESOME and amazing husband for doing all the dishes and cooking. Without him, I think I would lose my mind! He’s taken up the hobby of creating delicious meals and I’m taking up the hobby of gaining weight from those meals. It’s fun for everyone! (minus the whole pants getting tighter sort of thing….)

Anyhoo, I love love LOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVEEEEEEEE my clients for being not only gorgeous, but amazing people to work with. So thank you all!!!

Without further babbling, here’s some fun from this last week….


Hello cutie pattootie. I could seriously take her home.

Okay I guess that will be all today. I have more sessions to edit, kids to play with, and sleep would be nice as well!

This gorgeous mama-to-be and her hubby are expecting their first child in a few weeks. I got the opportunity to photograph them out at the beach on the Columbia river at one of my favorite locations. It was perfect!!

I can’t wait to meet their new arrival!!!!!!




hello beautiful couple!


hello little baby in there!

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!
