Here’s to 2018!

The beginning of 2018 has gotten off to an amazing start. Winter in the pacific northwest is kind of quiet in the wedding photography world. However, because I have been focusing on low light and fun, backlit portraiture, it has been a busy winter for me. Getting soaked by rain while getting those shots has been so fun and rewarding. Yay for weather sealed cameras! … Read More Here’s to 2018!


Tragedy in the Gorge

A horrible tragedy has hit us in the Pacific Northwest.

Some teenagers were playing with fireworks near Punchbowl Falls on the Eagle Creek Trail and ended up lighting the entire gorge on fire. We have not had rain here in weeks, everything turns to tinder in the summer. One careless act has taken away so much.


{Highway 101 Road Trip} Day 2 Lincoln City to Bandon, OR

Continuing on our trip along the coast, we head south again along the 101. First stop? Thor’s well and Spouting horn. During high tide, these two sites are amazing (and dangerous) but our timing wasn’t the best. We had a date with an animal park in Bandon, so we stopped and checked it out at low tide. While it’s still really cool to see, … Read More {Highway 101 Road Trip} Day 2 Lincoln City to Bandon, OR


{Highway 101 Road Trip} Day 1 Pacific City to Lincoln City, Oregon

I haven’t shared some of our adventures in awhile, so I thought I would share some of the longer road trips and longer adventures that we’ve enjoyed as a family. My bucket list consists of visiting all the National Parks. I have been to quite a few, but my family hasn’t, so we starting planning our family vacations around them. My husband’s passion is … Read More {Highway 101 Road Trip} Day 1 Pacific City to Lincoln City, Oregon


No Reservation Camping Day 1 – Lake Quinault

For the last few years, I had gone through all of the routes we wanted to take on our road trips, made reservations, and kept a timeline. This year, we tried something different. No reservations, no plans, and no timeline. It helped that we were only about 6 hours from home at any given time, so if it didn’t work out, it was just … Read More No Reservation Camping Day 1 – Lake Quinault


{Wahclella Falls} The Scouting Mission

When I started in photography, waterfalls were my main subject. I loved just to sit by them and watch everything around them. Completely took me to a different world, which at the time, was exactly what I needed. My dad just passed and I knew I had to do something to help myself. I grew up camping and hiking with him, so I decided … Read More {Wahclella Falls} The Scouting Mission


Backpacking the Siouxon

When my husband asks me what I want to do for my birthday, I almost always say backpacking. I grew up hiking and camping with my family almost every summer and while sometimes it seemed I wasn’t enjoying myself, looking back, those are my fondest memories. My husband and I are just now getting back into it. I prefer backpacking and primitive camping compared … Read More Backpacking the Siouxon
