{Skelton Family} | Portland, OR family photographer

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!

We made sure to take some time for FUN!

I really love this one of Miss L

A nice one of Mom and Dad

The pond color was a little suspect, but I’m glad the water is back at Laurelhurst finally!

Such sweet girls!

Thanks again Skelton family for spending the morning with me! It was so much fun, I hope we get to do it again!

{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!

{Eddie Vedder concert} Portland, OR Photographer

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”!

The amazing Schnitz!

Eddie with Glen Hansard and 2 of the Sleater Kinney girls

and lastly, the marquis!

{4th of July, 2011} Portland, OR Photographer

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!

On the 4th itself we met some friends down on Waterfront Park to people watch before fireworks

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

This has to be one of my all time favorite Portland pictures


What a great night!

{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!

{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

I love this cute chunky face

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

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

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