Infant Loss Moms Photography Project Proposal

I "met" Hannah in a mom's group on Facebook. We were both really early along in our pregnancies, though Hannah was a week further along than I. I had one child already, who was almost 2.

Rose and Charles Engagement Session | Fern Ridge Reservoir | Veneta, Oregon

The Bradley Family | Thurston Hills Natural Area | Springfield, Oregon

I first photographed this lovely couple when they were engaged. We did a cute engagement-style session right across from where I live (there's a cute little church with beautiful grounds covered by grand oaks).

Life with Two Toddlers

Jack’s 5 Year Photos

For the past 5 years - from the time of his birth - I have taken pictures of my nephew Jack around his birthday. This year we did the photos at his home. These were my favorite set yet, because they show Jack where he feels safest. I loved each smile, giggle, and every bit [...]

Baby Henry’s Birth

I first met Kristyn and Joshua when they were looking for a photographer for their wedding. They were so warm and kind, and I just knew I wanted to have them as clients, so I was thrilled when they booked me. About a month and a half ago, Kristyn contacted me letting me know that [...]
