Resendez Family

I met with the lovely Resendez family in Laurelhurst Park in SE Portland. They are a stylish and kind-hearted family. I loved playing in the leaves and climbing trees with this fun and cute family. Their little baby boy, Abdi, is a chamer and has a ton of creative and friendly energy. He said hello to everone who passed, how cute is that! Their dog Margot is a sweetie. Their grandma also came and got in a quick photo as well!

Thank you Alina and Brian for this fun photoshoot!

Amber, Kody and Baby Keaton
Portland Maternity Photography

Amber and Kody and I all met up a few months back for their maternity pics in Laurelhurst Park. Love the sun, their rad pups and their baby Tom’s shoes… so adorable!  Congrats to them on their baby boy Keaton!
You may remember their wedding from 2009, it was lovely! It’s one of my favorite things to document a couple’s wedding and later have the privilege to document their family.

Rachel and John
Portland Engagement and Pet Photography


Rachel and John and I all met at Laurelhurst Park recently for a fantastic time in nature with their pups! Rachel is a veterinarian, and the couple love dogs! Guinness is the big black dog, Zoe is the black and tan German shepherd mix, Griffin is the blue Merle Aussie and Ziggy is the puppy Aussie! It was a lot of fun getting individual portraits of each pup, but the group photo was a bit challenging! 🙂 We made it happen and all the pups were really great and sweet. I love the pic of Rachel with her oldest pup, Guinness. The weather was overcast, but it made for some great light and plenty of snuggling. They are so cute and happy together! I’m so looking forward to working with this kind, loving and fun couple in May!

Danielle & Sean – Portland Engagement Photos

Se_Portland_Engagements.jpg one of my personal faves!

Se_Portland_Engagements5.jpg Danielle and Sean are super fun and we had a blast on the photo shoot. I couldn’t stop laughing with them!

Se_Portland_Engagements8.jpg Yes, this is their campaign poster of love.

Danielle and Sean are in love with laughter, fun and each other. We met up recently at Laurelhurst Park in SE Portland and they brought some fun props like bubbles, candy and American flags that were made in China…. We laughed a lot and had a great time gallivanting around the park finding cool backdrops for the pics. I’m super excited to photograph their May wedding, which is right around the corner. Hope you love the pics D&S!

Come on in, the water’s fine.

Kami and Brett are a super kind-hearted couple. We photographed at Rejuvenation in SE Portland.

Oregon_Engagement_Photos5.jpg Photographing through the lighting fixtures. Love this shot.



They met while parking their cars at the same time beneath the Hawthorne bridge, this is the exact location.

Kami and Brett are such an awesome couple who are getting married in May of this year. For their engagement session we had quite the adventure! We started at an architectural salvage shop because K&B just bought their first home together and love to work on home projects together. Then we went to the waterfront beneath the Hawthorne bridge to document where they first met. I was completely inspired by their story and their positive energy and I can’t wait to be a part of their wedding soon!

Sally and John and I met up at Laurelhurst Park in SE Portland for their fun engagement shoot. The weather was perfect, the colors were incredible and Sally and John are in love… What could be better? Sally and John met on Alberta Street and are inspired by nature, God and each other. I can’t wait to be a part of their July wedding at the World Forestry Center in the Hoyt Arboretum! Enjoy the sneak peek S&J!

The Petersen Family!

I love how Isaiah’s watching mom and dad kiss!

Some of you might recognize the cutie pie blonde baby in these photos as Isaiah from his 6 month session! Well… He’s already a year old and such a big boy:) They grow up sooo fast, he was walking all over the place! I met up recently with the lovely Kehau, her amazing husband Dean and their great family at the beautiful Laurelhurst Park. When I originally photographed Isaiah, we focused mainly on him (how can you not!) This time around however it was a super fun-filled day with Mom, Dad, Grandma and Cousin! Kehau is originally from Hawaii, so her mom and niece flew in for the b-day party and we were all able to get together for the nature-inspired family photos! Hope you love the sneak peek and your comments are always encouraged!
