This stunning Cathedral Park engagement session with Kristin and Jay was so much fun and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple or a more gorgeous evening. Kristin and Jay first set eyes on each other at a Seahawks game in Seattle. As fate would have it, they were brought together again in Portland several years later and things just clicked! We were joined by their dog, Russell (as in Russell Wilson! Go Seahawks!) and we spent a lovely evening wandering the beach beneath St. John’s Bridge, capturing stunning sunset photos along the river, and laughing over old memories the two shared. They’re getting married next Spring at Abbey Road Farm in Carlton, Oregon and I can’t wait!
Wowzah! What a stunner of a wedding! Ellerey & Dan are such a fun, laid-back, intelligent and gorgeous couple and their wedding was pretty much the same! Waverley Country Club is a historic, elegant and beautiful venue on the Willamette River. Ellerey & Dan planned a super fun celebration with so many unique and imaginative details. The Llamas were such a delight (RIP Rojo!) and brought smiles to everyone’s face and the neon light- champagne escort card wall was bonkers elegant and fun! With stunning florals by Blum, perfect coordination & styling from Bridal Bliss, entertainment by Event Team, and a gorgeous 5 tier cake from Dream Cakes, this was one amazing wedding for the books! Happy 1 year anniversary Ellerey & Dan! Cheers on a lifelong adventure of laughter, joy and love!
Christy is a beautiful momma friend of mine and I’m so happy to have known her for over 10 years! She is a delightful and hilarious momma who made two beautiful girls with bright spirts and wild imaginations. This boss-babe also owns the Original Photo Booth Company which is a rad photo booth team of cool booths and people and photos. These lifestyle and studio photos for mothers day of this year, though admittedly the shoot happened after moms day because… life! We first met up at my studio and then walked around the Mississippi arts area, including Ruby Jewel ice cream for the little ladies, which always makes for good pics (& bribes!) So fun spending a sunny afternoon documenting a fun family of incredible women. Celebrate family with a studio/street session!

Brett and Laurie recently welcomed the beautiful baby Hailey into this world and I’m so honored to have photographed their family. Not only did I get to document their new baby girl, I also had the privilege of photographing their fun wedding at Black Butte Ranch back in 2015! I love being able to document in people’s homes and I love the intimate details that make us this beautiful life, like dad’s thumb being held by his daughter’s tiny hand or the softness of mom’s shhhhing her baby girl to sleep. These are the moments and this is why I love what I do!!! Thank you Laurie and Brett for inviting me into your home!
Kids are friggin’ hilarious! My approach as a family photographer brings that crazy and wild joy to the typical family portrait. With over 15 years as an award winning professional family and wedding photographer, I love capturing all the unique things that make your family yours. It’s time you got family photos! The Autumn Mini Session has just been announced and spots are going quickly. With a sizable donation going to Unicef hurricane relief and a custom wood ornament, I think this is the best year yet!
Your 25 minute mini session will include your immediate family in a short and sweet photo session just in time for the holidays! To learn more read all about it on the Autumn Mini Session booking page.
I was honored to photograph Jennifer and Atom’s wedding and then came a baby! Baby Emma is a little doll and has the cutest cheeks pretty much… ever! I loved photographing this wonderful (and gorgeous!) family throughout Forest Park and Emma ate leaves for lunch. Good Times!
I was so excited to photograph baby Marek’s gender reveal party recently! Many couples cut into a cake and it’s pink inside if it’s a girl, and blue if it’s a boy! I figured that momma-to-be Liz, a professional baker herself, with her own book out on Amazon.com, would have the gender cake of the century! I was quite pleasantly surprised with the vintage hot air balloon theme and the basket pull! Dan and Liz were grinning ear to ear when the pink confetti showered them and everyone pronounced “It’s a Girl!” Baby Avalon is due this summer and her story is a long and miraculous one. I’m so happy for Liz and Dan and baby Avalon and their families! What a wonderful party!
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!
This beautiful family just welcomed a beautiful new addition, baby Grey, and we had a blast playing in the leaves at Laurelhurst Park on a beautiful fall day! Jackson, their oldest son, is such a great big brother! Maggie is a great and beautiful dog. She did so great for the camera!
Thank you Autumn and Eric for choosing me to document these cherished moments as your family grows! Congratulations!
