{Mr. C is 6 months old!} Portland, OR family photographer

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!

Here are some pictures of the cutest 6 month old around!

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!

He wouldn’t stop flirting while eating! Watch out ladies!

After dinner we got some naked time and tummy time!so cute!

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!

{Jesse: One year old!} Portland, OR children photographer

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.

Its something about that little smirk that gets me every time!

So handsome!

Such the charmer!

This one wins as my favorite. Love those little teeth!

One with his Mama

So much fun! Luckily I get to take Jesse’s pictures every couple of months, his Mom is really great about that. So hopefully it won’t be too much longer til I see him again!

{Martine Family-new arrival} Portland, OR newborn photographer

The Martines had me out to their home in June to photograph their new edition, Mr. C. He’s their first child, and they worked really hard on his nursery and wanted to get a few pictures in it. Mom and Dad are adorable new parents, but Dad really captured my heart when talking about building his new son a tree house and all the fun they’ll have together. Too sweet!

Mr. C is a sweet little one, and if I remember right, he was about 3 month old when we did our session. Enjoy his cute face!

Love that little smile!

The teddy bear was Mom’s when she was a baby! I love that!

There’s nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby!

Love those little ears too!

My favorite shot of the day!

Thanks again Martines for having me out to take pictures of your beautiful son!

{Moehring Family} Beaverton, OR family photographer

I am obviously quite behind on my blogging! I am hoping to get caught up and be better about regularly blogging on here. I find it hard to keep up with a full time job, a part-time photography job, updating my Facebook pages-both personal and photography, my professional website AND this blog. Phew! I also have a personal blog that has been neglected for almost a year. I think I’ve mostly given up on it. Summer has been great, lots of business to keep me busy, I started a new job working at Daimler Trucks (aka Freightliner). Rick and I have had something going every single weekend since June, and that is going to continue through mid-October! I can’t really complain though, because its all been good things to do-and a lot of fun. We’ve had 3 weddings so far this summer, and I am shooting 2 more in September. So with all of that, I will defer to the pictures, and do my best to be better at blogging!

I met with the Moehring Family back in May (told you I was behind!) and spent a few hours with them. We went up to Camp Rivendell, on Cooper Mountain and it was really pretty. The flowers were just starting to bloom, thanks to our long winter and slow to warm up Spring. Their kids are beyond adorable and full of energy, as most kids are, so they were a lot of fun to shoot. We ended the session back at their house, which is always fun to get kids in their own element. Mom’s parents were in town and came with us to help wrangle the kids, and get a few pictures in as well.

How cute are they, all blonde headed!

Cute Daddy Daughter duo!

Grandpa & Grandma

Mom and her boy

Back at the family’s house…

Some fun with bubbles!

Who doesn’t love a tutu and rainboots?

And my favorite picture of the day!

Thanks again Moehrings for having me out to take pictures of your beautiful family. It was so much fun, and I hope we get to do it again!

Ruby turns three! {Portland, OR children photographer}

Ruby recently turned three and her Mom wanted to get some pictures of the big girl all by herself! Ruby happens to be my favorite three year old, so we had a fun time while taking her pictures. Thank you Ruby for letting me take such cute pictures of you!

We had to get one with her favorite blankie.

Such a sweet girl!

Playing is an important part of my sessions with kids!

Sisters & Best friends!

{Clark Family} | Portland, OR family photographer

I met up with the Clark Family in the Pearl District on a cold January day. Little Ella was grumpy, but we managed to get some smiles out of her anyway.

Ella has gorgeous baby blues!

Daddy is adorable with Ella

And Mommy is stunning

Such a cute family

Daddy is the smile expert I think

I love this cute chunky face

I think Mom and Dad have a little flirt on their hands!

Thanks again for coming to meet me for pictures Clark Family! You guys are too cute, and even a grumpy Ella was fun to take pictures of!

Connolly Family

Nichole asked me to take pictures of her whole family as a Christmas present for her parents and Grandma. We rounded up the whole family over Christmas weekend, and since it was a very nasty day outside, we decided to use the common room at Nichole’s condo building. It ended up working out well and we got some great shots of a great looking family!

4 generations of women

I love this one of Nichole and her brother

Nichole’s immediate family

Nichole’s brother and his adorable family

Its obvious this pretty girl has captured her Grandpa’s heart!

Nichole also wanted a few pictures of her with her fur family

With her beautiful Weimaraner

Love this one of the kitty and pup

And one last one of doggy

Thank you again Connollys for spending some time with me over Christmas. It was a joy to take pictures with you all!

Hall Family

At the end of November, I met the Hall family at Peninsula Park in Portland to take some family pictures for the holidays. It was really cold, but we lucked out with some dry weather! Peninsula Park is one of my favorites in Portland, and although its much nicer in the summer with the rose gardens, it offers a great location in the fall and winter for pictures as well.

I loved Eva’s frilly pink skirt!

This picture is ALL attitude! Watch out for the teenage years!

Dylan’s Aunt was in town from Florida and wanted to get a few pictures with her favorite great niece as well

Daddy-Daughter shots are always a winner!

I think this is my most favorite shot of the day. What a beauty!

I love adding props to pictures, especially for the holidays

We had to get a few with Eva’s pretty pink rain coat and adorable butterfly rain boots!

We took some time to play in the puddles…

Dylan & Jen had been coaching Eva on seeing Santa, and had been practicing how to smile for Santa. This is what she came up with! I love a good Santa smile!

Snack time!

Eva’s cute bootsThank you Hall family for a fun morning at Peninsula Park! Your family is always a joy to take pictures of!
