Unfurl

Every image she sees - so full of light and shadow - has been telling her, her skin is not her own. She lost herself long ago when she invited past lovers, her husband, her children, society, to find comfort in the space between her flesh and soul, and amongst the folds where light and [...]

Authenticity

Everywhere I turn I see a message to be authentic. To be me. To be vulnerable. Instead, I have been delivering everything from under a veil, a "soft focus" of sorts, that attempts to hide the flaws. I don't feel like I've been truly authentic. So, here goes. When my emotions ran rampant as an [...]

Holli and Dar Wedding | Hendricks Park | Eugene, Oregon

Can I just say how much I loved Holli and Dar's… everything? From custom rings, to some amazing do it yourself details, to an amazing vision and execution, and to the couple's super laid-back attitude, I had an amazing day photographing this wedding. The feeling of the decor was of a bigger wedding, but they [...]

Kira.

Kira. It's hard to believe I've known you for four years already. Four years may not seem like a long time to any of you reading this, but it's literally a lifetime - my son's lifetime. You see, I met Kira's mom, whom I worked with at the time, when I was about 6 months [...]

Infant Loss Moms Photography Project Proposal

Hannah had a miscarriage before that. Throughout our pregnancies, Hannah and I were "pregnancy twins." We saw our midwives [...]

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). Then a couple of months ago this lovely gal approached me for a family session - they had a little boy! [...]

Life with Two Toddlers

If you know me personally, you know I have two very funny, bright, and adorable toddlers. If you don't know me... well, now you know. Life with two toddlers is crazy. Like, literally crazy-making, and some days I break out into my worst rendition of Ozzy Osborne. Some days, I can just ride the crazy [...]

Deep Woods Events | Elmira, Oregon | Glitz and Glam Styled Shoot

This styled shoot was inspired by old world luxury and glamour, with subtle hints of Art Deco flair. The cake, cake, escort cards, signs - and even a plum! – were adorned with gold leaf accents.
