Fall with the Dickinson Family  

This family… I just can’t begin to explain how much I adore them.  I get to photograph them every year, and it’s like spending an couple of hours with old friends. I’m pretty sure their cuteness speaks for itself, so I’ll let the images do the talking.



Little Sebastian  

I had the joy of photographing Sebastian before he was born, and shortly after he came into this world. It was so much fun to spend another afternoon with this little family of three capturing a few moments of his toddlerhood.

Jason + Alyse  

Are you guys ready for a super sweet Hillsboro wedding?  Jason and Alyse got hitched last weekend at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church surrounded by dear family and friends.  I love Alyse’s tea-length dress and bright blue sash. And those groomsmen suits?  So handsome!  Don’t you agree?



Teuta’s Head Shots  

Teuta is a talented attorney and partner at Hecht & Norman Immigration Attorneys.  She needed updated head shots, so after she got out of court, we popped over to Terry Schrunk Plaza for a quick session.  Be sure to click “Continue Reading” to see Teuta’s adorable giggle.  It’s so more than worth it!

Reinwald Family  

Fall has been absolutely stunning here in Portland. And this lovely weather made my shoot with the Reinwald family at the Hoyt Arboretum so much fun! Check it out!



Ben + Amaia  

You guys.  This wedding!  I am so excited to share it with all of you! Ben and Amaia have become dear friends in the past couple of years.  I shot two engagement sessions for them in DC, one amid the gorgeous fall colors and the second under a canopy of cherry blossoms in the spring.  Both were full of laughter, snarky humor, and intelligent conversation – right up my alley.  Then, in June, I moved from DC to Oregon.  Luckily, their August wedding was set to take place in Chehalis, Washington just a couple of hours away!  The stars aligned, […]

Lauren’s H.S. Senior Session  

This girl is one tough and talented cookie. She was selected captain of her Varsity soccer team this year, and she made the Region IV ODP (Olympic Development Program) Soccer Team which means that she’ll be representing Region IV while traveling this fall! Lauren may be a soccer rockstar, but she also looks super adorable in a sundress. I’m looking forward to seeing where her final year of high school takes her!



Matt’s H.S. Senior Session  

Matt is a senior in Beaverton this year. As you can see, he loves basketball, so we incorporated that into his session. I also incorporated a bit of encouragement to go to the University of Oregon next year. I do what I can to steer youth in the right direction. What can I say?

Kartik + Rathna + Holi = Love  

I am over-the-moon thrilled when my clients bring fun and interactive ideas to their sessions! Kartik and Rathna are a special case-in-point.  They are obsessed with Bollywood movies and many other parts of their Indian heritage. Holi* is part of that heritage, and these two characters knew they wanted to incorporate it into one of their engagement sessions. As you can see, this idea produced SO much fun and laughter. These two are bundles of joy, and I loved every second of photographing their Holi powder fight. 😉 *Holi is a spring festival also known as the festival of colors […]



Summer Cushman  

I love Summer. And when I say that, I mean both the season and this gorgeous woman – Mrs. Summer Cushman. She is, simply put, a beautiful human both inside and out. Check out our session in her home town of Bellingham, Washington. And when you’re done enjoying all the stunning scenery, pop over and check out Summer’s work at www.summercushman.com (where these images will soon be featured!).

The Rea Family

Like me, the Rea family has recently transitioned back to the West Coast from DC.  And now I’ve gotten to photograph them on both coasts! I first met Nathan in late 2012 at a meeting in Congressman Greg Walden‘s office.  Nathan was Rep. Walden’s Legislative Director at the time, and I gave him my business card (like all good DC networkers do). A few months later, Nathan scheduled a family session with his lovely wife, Emily, and their one-year-old daughter, Gwenyth! We captured photos in the Capitol building and shortly thereafter they moved back to the Walla Walla Valley to […]



Daniel Seymour

Danny’s senior photos include two of the most important things in his life: golf and the family ranch. We spent an evening on the course at the LaGrande Country Club and the following afternoon on the Seymour cattle ranch in Haines, Oregon capturing photos of him in his element(s). I quite like the results!

Sarah and Levi

Moving back to the West coast certainly has its perks … like getting to meet my 5-month-old nephew for the first time this week! I didn’t just meet him, though, I got to spend an afternoon photographing little Levi and his mom, my sister-in-law, Sarah. He was several weeks premature, but you’d never guess by his pudgy little legs and arms now. He’s such a little chunky monkey, and it was an honor to take his first photos!



The Sweet Family

I’m quite certain that a family could not be more aptly named. I mean, these folks are just about as sweet as can be. They were in town for the Easter Egg Roll at the White House, and made time for a little Easter family photo shoot on the Mall beforehand. Little Madelyn was super camera shy, but she was simultaneously so darling that it didn’t even matter.

Kartik + Rathna

Kartik and Rathna. Oh man. I cannot say enough good things about these two! We met when I documented their epic proposal story, and this week we joined forces again for the first of two engagement sessions! (Stay tuned for their holi-themed session coming in a few weeks!) From the moment I met these two, their love for one another was readily apparent. They share a passion for all things Bollywood, spend the majority of their time together laughing, and my goodness if they aren’t one of the most beautiful couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph.  On top […]
