This queen is a senior! I have known Abby for over 5 years now. She has become like a sister to me and is a good friend. Abby has spent somewhere close to 100 hours over the past two years watching my boys and I couldn't be more grateful for the love and care she gives them. Abby has grown up so fast and I was honored that she wanting me to capture her senior year.Read More
Our family friends had asked me to photograph their younger kids (Oldest is off at college - don't worry Ethan, we didn't forget about you) so I headed up the mountain to their house. We had a great time chasing dogs, dodging sprinkles and talking homeschool, but for real our time together was awesome. End of Summer / early Fall is my favorite for family pictures.Read More
After Ben + Brenna got married we made plans to take some bridals while we scouted out a new spot in Oregon, and finally, those plans came to life. We made the 2-hour drive and then spent an hour getting lost and doubting all good things as the sun started to go down (ok maybe this was mostly me) the sky was cloudy from all the forest fires and it set off a crazy orange-pink hue.Read More
This summer has been filled with so many awesome weddings! I was so honored to shoot Kayla + Josh's wedding in Oregon. I went to school with Josh from middle school to high school, so I was pretty excited when I heard from him and Kayla to photograph their wedding.
Kayla + Josh's wedding was held at Langdon Farms, in Aurora Oregon. They were surrounded by close friends and family, all came to see they two sweethearts tie the knot. I was most touched by all of the love surrounding Kayla + Josh, there were so many special moments and my goal was to capture them to the best of my ability.
Enjoy guys!Read More
This one is close to home (literally it was at our house - well my parent's house)! My little sister married her best friend! Mollie + Bobby asked me to photograph their wedding when they got engaged last year and I was honored to capture her big day at her side.
Mollie + Bobby got married in Hockinson, Washington at my parent's barn. There had been months and months of preparation for this wedding with remodeling, tearing down, building up and creating this magical place for their wedding. It all came together on a very hot July day, in the field next to the pond. And as I was taking pictures during the ceremony I couldn't help but take it all in from a different perspective than I had before. But taking pictures for my sister on her big day was one of the most special moments of my life and in my career.Read More
My job goes deeper than taking pictures, it's 100% about making connections and getting to know the people I photograph. At times I feel like I get to be a part of their lives for a season. And for this season of Genevieve's life, I felt a roller coaster of emotions, the kind that as a daughter and young mother myself I feel deeply for Genna. But seeing her with Dante brings me so much joy when they are together you sense Dantes protection for Genna. The protection of her heart and their little family, it gives me goosebumps thinking about it. I have been there for the engagement pictures, the family pictures when I got to meet little EJ, and see the three of them work as a family.Read More
Olivia + Kyle's wedding took place in one of the most magical places, atop Mt.Hood where they exchanged their vows. They were surrounded by guests that came from all over the world to witness their special day. The weather was wonderful for us as we had on and off cloud coverage throughout the whole day. To be on the mountain in the summer was surreal. The views were captivating and the valleys spread out as far as the eye could see.Read More
Aleysha is a barista at my local coffee shop, and yes that is where we met. I got to photograph Aleysha + Josh out in the gorge next to the Columbia River last month. We hiked through wildflowers and dodged sheets of rain as we got to know each other.
I cherish moments like this because if it wasn't for Aleysha's boldness of always engaging in conversation with me we would still just be strangers. So next time go out of your comfort zone and talk with someone, meet someone new <3Read More
Chera-Lee and Austin are celebrating 5 years of marriage to one and other. So naturally, we decided to celebrate their marriage by documenting their love. Chera-Lee got her dress out of storage to wear, while Austin put on a suit + tie. We went to Portland, Oregon and headed down to the Portland Studio.

Since Rowan was born I have tried getting a decent picture of the boys together. We usually try to turn it into something fun for all of us, and it usually ends the same. I may not have gotten a picture of the two of them smiling at the camera, but we got some fun ones.Read More
