Lindsay + Brian = Married! ~ Waco Wedding Photographer/Travel - Portland, OR

Brian has been a dear friend of my husband's and mine for years, when he said he was dating a girl named Lindsay, we could hear the excitement in his voice. A while later when he called and told us he was going to marry her, we knew she was the one and couldn't wait to meet her! Finally this summer we all went out to dinner and I loved her from the get go! Shooting this wedding was an absolute honor and priviledge, the love in the air was palpable and I'm so thankful to have been a part. Music is a huge part of Lindsay's life (in fact she and Brian met at Starbucks when she asked Brian what he was listening to!), so being the cool girl she is, she surprised Brian by singing a song she wrote for him at the reception (her brother helped play guitar -so much talent in one family!). Hands down one of the coolest moments I've ever been witnessed in my life. Lindsay and Brian, thank you for letting me be a part of your day, and for trusting me to tell your story, such an honor. xo 007xweb

In Love ~ Kjrsten & Pete ~ Portland Couples Photographer

I often get asked if its easier to photograph a total stranger or someone I know?  The truth is, there are pluses and minuses to both and I'm genuinely not sure if I have a preference. With that said,  what I do know is that photographing another photographer is most definitely nerve wracking, but, they do know how to work it. :) Kjrsten is a dear friend of mine and captured Adam's and my 10th anniversary for us, I was happy to return the favor. Kjrsten and Pete have been married for nearly 13 years and have 3 adorable girls, you can read more about their life and see Kjrsten's work here.  Kjrsten and Pete, this was too much fun (and at times a little scary (insert crazy cows)), I say we make it a little tradition? Kj, I miss you already, thank you for making my year in Portland that much sweeter. xo

Weeks Family ~ Portland Children and Family Photographer

It is really fun when I get to see a family grow and change year after year. Brooke hired me last year to document their family shortly after Maggie's arrival. (You can see that session here). Now Maggie is 1 and they recently moved from Washington to Oregom (so they came to me!) and we got to do some more documenting! This family is just as sweet as they are cute and we had a great time frolicking around Oregon City. Thanks Weeks family! xo

Cooper Family ~ Portland Children and Family Photographer

I loved my daughter's pre-school for many reasons, among those reasons were all the neat families that I met! Keeley was one of the first moms I came in contact with and it was fun getting to know her as the school year went on. I was so excited that she wanted a mini session before I headed off to Texas. We met downtown Oregon City and just walked around enjoying the sunshine. Thanks Coopers!

Auction Winner! ~ Portland Children and Family Photography

Several months ago I offered a mini session as an auction item for Brennan's pre-school fundraiser, and this uber cute family was who won! When I met Maris we just kinda clicked, and our husbands...oh man, they could talk forever! This family is just as sweet as they are beautiful and we had a great time out frolicking in the sun. Looking forward to many summer days spent together watching our girls play ~ thanks you guys!! xo
