HELLO SUMMER! ... bring it on. Hot sunny days... sandy feet after a day at the beach... trips to the local Dairy Queen. Kids can be kids, and parents can get a (little) break from the fast and furious pace of the school year. Take it all in. It'll be over in the blink of an eye!

While you're at it... consider getting your yearly pictures done now. Beach session, anyone? Maybe consider something new I'm doing called "one shot". For $75 you'll get one shot - beautifully edited and given to you as a digital image AND a 5x7 or 8x10 print. A perfect way to capture their personality now without a full blown session.

There is nothing cuter than a sleeping baby….  Lucky to be able to call this little guy’s grandma a friend, and I just know she’s going to spoil him rotten!



Look who just celebrated her first birthday!    I met up with this adorable ONE year old and her parents for a mini session on a perfect Fall day in downtown Portland.    It’s amazing how much babies change and grow in just a year.  She’ll be walking soon…  be ready Mom & Dad!

On one of the hottest days of the year… hitting almost 100 degrees in the afternoon.. Central City Concern celebrated summer in style with a picnic that brought together families in their Letty Owings and Family Housing programs.  I met so many great kids and families that day… including this little one who’s going to break hearts some day!


There’s something about Mothers & Daughters that gets me every time.    Mothers love you like no one else can, and daughters take care of you when you get old… love this mother / daughter shot from my session last night.

This lil guy is three months old and I’ve known his family for a long time… almost as long as they’ve been hoping for him and dreaming of him.  Someday I know he’ll understand the excitement that surrounded his arrival this Summer!  Congrats to this amazing family — he is adorable!


I had my first portrait session in the beautiful state of Washington last weekend with a family that will have a lot to be thankful for this Holiday Season!  A new sister was added to the mix earlier this year, and I’m sure it won’t take her brothers long to realize that the balance of power will be shifting…

The first time I met this little guy was at his newborn session when he was less than a week old!  It was fun to photograph him again after almost a year and see how much he has grown…  He slept through the last session like a champ, so it was nice to see his big blue eyes this time!


This little guy was all smiles when I arrived for his 9-month session, but I soon realized he had a lot more expressions to show me!    I just LOVE this one…


This is about the longest I’ve ever gone without updating the blog!  It’s not that we haven’t been busy… WE HAVE BEEN… and here are just a few of my favorites from the past few months!



Meet Tucker – 3 months old & visiting Chicago this weekend so his Mom can hang out with one of her childhood friends.  They’re both celebrating Mother’s Day for the first time this year… and celebrating together.  I love that!
