I love when I get to continuously work with families! I was lucky enough to capture a Christmas session with Sarra and Chris a few years ago, and then family pictures AND their wedding since then. This time however, Sarra’s sister was in town and they wanted family pictures with them and all their cousins. So we went out to Moulton Falls Park on … Read More The Anderson Family
Can you believe that Edie and her husband have been married for 50 years?! This sweet family wanted a quick session out at Klineline park when the whole family was in town. While they originated in Vancouver, WA, they have spread out over the United States but come together now and then. I love working with amazing families like theirs!
Have you heard about the old Witches Castle hidden amongst the trees in Portland? Well, the Walton family and I decided to go and check it out. It turns out; it’s just an old bathroom from the 1930s that fell into disrepair after a storm and the parks department just left it alone. In any case, it makes an excellent spot for family photos! … Read More The Walton Family in Forest Park
It’s summer time, which means more outdoor festivals. And if you couldn’t tell, the craft brewing fests are my favorite. This last weekend I spent some time at the Craft Beer and Wine Fest in downtown Vancouver. It’s different than the Vancouver Brewfest as this has less beer, but adds wineries and distilleries from the area. But I did spend a decent amount of … Read More 2019 Craft Beer and Wine Fest
Being my first “official” destination wedding, I came WAY over prepared. I think I purchased 2 more camera batteries, ANOTHER GoPro, all three of my DSLRs, more batteries for them, and cleared off every single one of my SD cards that I have in my inventory (P.S. that’s alot). I didn’t want anything to go wrong and be stranded out here and not be … Read More Heather and John’s Red Rock Canyon Wedding.
Surprise! Cara and Andy are pregnant! I had to make sure they announced it first as I get a little excited when I find out the happy news. So instead of a couples session like originally planned, they had their very first family portrait session. Cara won a bid on a gift card that I had put in my friends’ auction about a year … Read More The Mobley’s First Family Portrait Session
The wintertime can be tricky here, especially to keep everybody happy for their family portraits. In the past few years, I have been lucky to have access to a little spot in the Academy in downtown Vancouver, WA. That little spot came in handy when the Zadaks wanted a fun session, without being wet and cold. And their little girl’s personality filled the whole … Read More A Family Portrait Session with the Zadaks.
It’s January, and I was going stir crazy. I wanted to hit the trails, but then again, I didn’t want to get soaked entirely doing so. So, to the internet, I went. After multiple articles and maps gone over, I decided on Silver Falls Park just outside of Silverton, OR. The park came up numerous times on the “best hikes in the rain” lists, … Read More Trail Report: Silver Falls State Park
Congratulations to Alex on his senior year at Heritage High School! Alex, his mom, and brother met me at the trail that goes around the WSU campus in Salmon Creek. I knew the rain was coming, but I thought it was at least going to give us a little bit of time. Started near the trailhead and worked our way over to the little … Read More Senior Session with Alex
