I met up with the Foteff Family at the beginning of October, out at Liepold Farms’ pumpkin patch. I had never done a shoot at a pumpkin patch, but I thought it was such a great idea, with corn fields and pumpkins for background and added color! The little one is 6 months old and even though she didn’t want to do much smiling for me, she was still adorable and a lot of fun to photograph! Hope you enjoy!
I met up with the adorable Skelton family at Laurelhurst Park a few weekends ago, on one of those awesome sunny Fall Portland days. I had never met them, but it was so fun to run around the park with their beautiful and busy daughters!
Such a cute family!
I really love this one of Miss L
Megan and Johnnie are high school sweethearts and friends of mine! After being together for years, they finally decided to tie the knot in September. The wedding was held at the groom’s sisters home, with a large open field, surrounded by farm land. The weather was not good, it rained all day and at the last minute they decided to move the ceremony from outside to under the reception tent. We made do with the weather and did our best to get pictures between the downpours!
Megan’s dress was simple, but gorgeous. It was totally her.
The first look, his face is too cute!
Its hard to believe its already time for Mr. C’s 6 month pictures! Time is flying! I have been keeping really busy with weddings, families, seniors etc during late summer and early fall. Now that the weddings are over for the year, I can take more time to edit and update my site and blog. Yay!
Mom wanted to get a few shots of Mr. C in his Halloween costume. Too cute, little Lion Man!
I actually really loved Mom’s idea of doing pictures around their family home, just doing regular routine things around the house. She wanted to capture some of dinner time, since baby is just recently eating food.
I loved this “baby bird” shot!
Emily and Brandon are such great parents. I love watching them interact with their little one!
Such a big boy!Thanks again E & B for having me in your home to capture some precious moments with your little one! I’m looking forward to our next time already, and seeing how Mr. C will grow and change!
Nik and Rachelle are friends of mine, and their gorgeous July wedding was one that I got to attend as a guest, rather than a “working” guest. However, I can’t resist taking lots of pictures at weddings, even when I’m not working, and since Rachelle was such a stunning bride, I have to share some pictures!
Their wedding and reception were at Nik’s parent’s house, on the Sandy River. It was a perfect night-not too warm or too cold, great food, drinks and friends and we even got to end the night with a wedding beach bonfire! I loved the whole thing. So, for some pictures!
I loved Rachelle’s dress, it was so amazing on her.The sun hit her just right as her step dad walked her to the aisle
Becky is my best friend in the whole world! We have been best friends since the 3rd grade-going on 24 years I think. Sadly, she lives all the way in Boise, while she’s in school, but she came into town in July and we were able to take a trip to the beach together, which was a lot of fun. Becky’s Dad recently got married and his new wife requested a large picture of Becky to hang in their hallway next to pictures of her kids’ senior pictures. I happily obliged and we were able to take some time while at the beach and get some frame-worthy pictures!
Becky has always been gorgeous, and with a good location and some good light, she’s even more so!
In July my friend Kelly and I attended the Eddie Vedder and Glen Hansard concert at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall (or Schnitz as we call it!). It was a truly amazing show, in a fantastic venue. A good portion of the concert was Eddie playing songs on his ukelele, but he also did some Pearl Jam songs and I really loved that it felt like you were just sitting in his living room listening to him playing. It felt unlike any other show I’ve been to, plus he had 2 long encores. I could take pictures of Eddie all day, but here are a few of my favorites from the evening!
Welcome to Eddie’s “living room”!
Since I’m not really upkeeping my personal blog anymore, I am going to try and put some personal posts on here as well about some of the fun things that my husband Rick and I do. We are both super busy and social and I try my best to take a lot of pictures of all the fun things we do.
We had a really fun 3-day 4th of July weekend filled with fun and friends. Here are some pictures of our weekend!
Rick and I both play in a kickball league and were invited to play in a fun game that weekend. The only rule was you had to have a drink in hand the whole game. It was really fun, they call it Slosh Ball Here’s a shot of all the participants…Rick is in the white shirt in the chair and I’m in the orange on the right!

Around firework time we headed over to the Marriott on the waterfront. Our friends had rooms there for the night, with balconies overlooking the Blues Festival and the firework show. The rooms were on the top floor of the hotel, directly in front of the firework show. It ended up being the most perfect spot to watch the fireworks and gave a different vantage point of the city that I hadn’t seen before.
The Marriott from our vantage point…lots of other people on their balconies too
Jesse has to be my favorite baby to photograph. I met he and his parents at Overlook Park over 4th of July weekend to get some shots of Jesse to to commemorate his turning one! He is so stinkin’ cute and happy and I always enjoy when I get to spend some time with him. Prepare yourself for some serious cuteness.
