Baby Kane {Lake Oswego, OR}

Baby Kane! Just 11 days old when I met him, this little boy is so incredibly handsome, with blue eyes and a head of thick black hair, I have a feeling he will grow to be as strong as his name sounds!

I joined his family on a bright and warm Monday morning, and was so excited to have such a beautiful family and beautiful home to photograph in. Heidi and Brett have it together, I was utterly impressed by how calm and capable they were as brand new parents. Kane was awake the entirety of our session, which made for lovely interaction with his parents.

Thank you Heidi and Brett, for allowing me into your home at this precious time to capture these images for you. It was a huge honor!




Where We Live /June 2014

I’m excited that June is my first month as part of a blog circle called “Where We Live”. Each month I will be publishing a post dedicated to the city I call home, Portland, OR. Be sure to click the link at the bottom to follow the circle and see other talented photographer’s unique perspectives of the places they call home.


When thinking about Portland and what I might photograph first in the city I love so much, there really wasn’t a question.  My most favorite spot in the city is the place I spend 90% of my time: The Woodlawn neighborhood where I live.

Gritty. Diverse. Colorful. Local. Walkable. Family-Oriented. Tattooed. Graffitied. Caffeinated. Bikeable. Neighborly.

Its a great place for Foodies, People-Watchers, Gardeners, Do-Gooders, Church-goers, and Imbibers.  Its not manicured. uniform or perfect, but there is beauty to be found here, in its uniqueness, and in the people who call it home.







Be sure to follow the circle and check out all the places my talented Photographer friends call home. Next up is Rebecca Hellyer’s blog. She’ll be showing us around her city of Chicago. I can’t wait to see what she’s posted!

Price Family – Double life

You can imagine how excited I was to meet up with the Price family again; their adorable twin girls, Madison and Kennedy, really stole my heart during our last session. This time around, I had the opportunity to shoot in their home, which was both challenging (being that I’m an indoor lighting novice!) and great fun (this family is the definition of JOY!).

This was also my first venture into “lifestyle” photography, and I loved trying to capture the small details and interactions of this family’s life. I was pleased with the results!
