It was a beautiful early summer evening in Oregon when I got to hang out with the Harris family. The wind was blowing, the wildflowers lined the roads, and the sun was slowly dipping behind the mountains. As I breathed in the fresh Oregonian air, my heart felt so FULL. That night reminded me of […]

My sweet James Richard. 365 days ago I was in the early stages of labor, still trying to convince myself that I was having Braxton Hicks contractions so I wouldn’t get my hopes up. For nine long months you grew inside my belly. I still remember the first time I felt you move, and how […]

I’m a huge fan of the tall grass, green trees and flowers everywhere. It’s my favorite time of year […]

Happy Thursday! I hope today’s pictures bring a little smile to your face, because the definitely did to mine. Every time I see sweet little Jude, I can’t help but grin from ear to ear… He’s one of the cutest and sweetest little boys out there! I go to church with Jude’s family, and have […]

I remember being a little girl in elementary school and going on field trips to a local pumpkin patch. It was my favorite […]

How is it already back to school time? I could have sworn that just the other day I was hugging my kiddos good bye for the summer, and now here we are… just a few weeks away from the start of a new school year. Growing up, this used to be my absolute favorite time […]

First off, isn’t little Uriah just the cutest?! I mean, the minute I saw his chubby cheeks and sweet smile I was in love. These baby sessions I’ve been having lately are giving me all sorts of baby fever, y’all. 😉 Uriah’s mom, Kasidy, and I went to high school together, so when she reached out […]

These pictures are very special to me. When my pastor’s wife reached out to me and asked if I could take some family pictures for them, I didn’t think twice. I absolutely love my pastor’s family, and they were actually my very first paid clients, so they will always hold a special place in my […]

I am so excited to share this shoot with y’all! I had the greatest privilege to work with one of my high school classmates the other day to celebrate Mother’s Day the best way possible… By taking maternity pictures for her soon-to-be-here baby. When she first reached out to me, I was thrilled. Not only […]
