Kellen and Ty
A Downtown Portland Engagement

Kellen and Ty are the kind of people you meet and you feel like you’ve known forever. Their kindness, style and heart are apparent right away and their love is truly fun and great to be around! We met up at their condo in NW near Forest Park to start and I fell in serious love with their open courtyard. We headed into Forest Park for a quick jaunt in the woods and then to the NE Industrial waterfront, which I rarely shoot at, so it was pretty cool and I found this great building that we all admired. We finished up the shoot at the SE docks at sunset. So happy to be documenting Kellen and Ty’s wedding this December at the gorgeous Sunriver Resort and work with Events by Mint! Beyond excited!

The Johnson Family
A Day in the Life at Home

Michelle, Alex, Leo and Ray are the cutest and kindest. I met Michelle a loooonnnnngggg time ago when she was at Oblation and of course… wedding industry so we met at a bridal show! After finding out that our home roots are also in Michigan and specifically, Ann Arbor we became friends and I actually photographed Michelle and Alex’s two year wedding anniversary photos long before the kiddos came along! Michelle now co-owns a great book binding company called Hitched Strung Stitched in town. After not seeing her in many moons, we ended up in a magical pre-natal yoga class together at Yoga Pearl! I was so happy and honored to be invited to their new home to photograph their sweet family. Leo is a cutie and such a good big brother to baby Ray! Alex and Michelle are great parents and even grandma and grandpa were able to jump in for a few photos! I love photographing families at home, in the familiar, the cozy and comfortable and gettin real moments rather than staged all too perfect traditional family portraits. The messy hair, the barefeet and the wildness of the days that make up the years that make up this beautiful life. Thank you Johnson family and much love!

Becky and Scott
Portland Lifestyle Engagements

#eyelashkissBecky and Scott invited me to their Portland home for their engagement session recently and I had no idea what I was in for! A stunning home, incredible gardens, cute kitties, flowers, berries and a greenhouse! Becky and Scott are SO inspiring, kind and compassionate and have planted their incredible garden by hand and with love. It makes perfect sense that their wedding take place later this month at the gorgeous Leach Botanical Gardens. I’m so happy to be documenting their big day!

Cara and Steven
A Cathedral Park and Waterfront Engagement

Cara and Steven share laughs, love and kindness and live in the darling St. John’s neighborhood. We started our engagement session at Cathedral Park, at the base of the St. John’s bridge and ended up at the waterfront with the stunning cherry blossoms. We had a blast in some of Portland’s not to be missed spots, and I can’t wait for their wedding next month at Hotel Deluxe!
