When I first talked with this cute momma to be, she mentioned that her style is more black and white and very simple! It was a great sessoin and I can't wait to meet her sweet baby boy.

{last holiday family of the year!}

Boy, oh boy! these past few months have definitely been filled with a lot of beautiful families! I feel so honored and blessed that so many of you have chosen and entrusted me to capture your families sweet little moments. Just for fun I went back and counted just how many families I have had the pleasure of meeting since the beginning of September (which is usually when the holiday rush begins) this family makes the grand total of 73! I then went to my archive of 2008 (Sept-Dec) where I had just 26 sessions in those same 4 months last year. What a difference a year has been for my little business! I feel so blessed and am in complete awe that I have more than tripled my clientèle within a year!! I truly believe I am the luckiest person in the world! I get to do what I looove doing, and I work with the most amazing people... YOU! Thank you for allowing me to make my dream a reality!
Without any further blabbing... I have had quite a few return clients from last year come and visit me again this year, and I love seeing how they grow! This sweet family of five, didn't change too much.. but those boys sure got taller! It was so nice to see you guys again!

don't ya think?

{i'm back!}

Wow- I am finally getting caught up with things, it is amazing!! It's been a whole six days since my last post, seems more like a month! But I'm back! Love this sweet family, who braved the cold weather... although they did luck out and we got this session done a week before Portland hit 22 degrees, yikes! Aren't they all adorable? Don't get too excited... they are all taken!

{Miller. Seven Days.}

I'm back! We survived! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Now to get caught up on all these galleries and previews!
It's been a few weeks since I have had a newborn session... I missed them! Miller was the perfect baby boy- such a sweet sweet baby. Hardly heard a peep! He is the fourth child into this beautiful family, and is so loved.

Just had to sneak this one in of the two big sisters. While little Miller was being fed, Miss S had a great idea; "Let's sneak a picture of me and my sister, so my mom can put it up on her blog! It will be a great surprise!" {How can I resist?}

{Mini-Session Previews!}

Last Saturday I put together a mini-session day, it was the first time I had ever had so many sessions in one day, but it turned out awesome. I was able to meet some beautiful families, and the weather... well, we dealt! Here are just a few, all I have time to put up tonight, I'm sure I'll add a few more next week! {Your CDs will be ready at the end of next week! Don't forget to email me your addresses!}
I am leaving out of town for Thanksgiving, all emails, orders, and phone calls will be replied to... when I return on the 3rd of December! Happy Thanksgiving!

All I have to say is this momma and daddy, are my heroes! 4 kids under the age of 3, and such gorgeous kids they were! How cute is the littlest? 2 weeks old and just slept straight through it all! Don't you just love the color coordination? Perfect!

I love meeting up with this family- I first met them last year around the same time, and it's always a pleasure. I love working with large families.. nothing like all that love!

Such a sweet family! These two little ones were just kind as can be, so well-behaved... and just very pleasant! I loved seeing the bond between them, it is what I hope my two babies will be like when they get a bit older!

Twins! Yay! I love working with twins! My second set of the day! Although it got quite tough getting these two to crack at the same time.. we still managed a few! I have a lot of twins on my calendar, and I get excited each time... there is nothing like the friendship involved with a set of twins.

{under the bridge}

when this cute family mentioned wanting to meet up under the St. John's bridge, I was super excited! I love new locations! This one was awesome! In fact, I decided to hold 6 mini-sessions there the same day {previews coming tomorrow!} Why hadn't I heard of this park before??? One of my new favorites!
{please note: I will be out of town Nov 25th- Dec 3rd, please place digital orders by midnight tonight if you would like them to be sent out before I take off!}

it was fun to catch up with this family a bit- we miss our old neighbors, now you guys just need to move out this way so we can have our fun bbq's again!

{sweet brothers}

I think every session from here on out was freeeezing! I have the bravest clients! Sweet baby Lily, got a little cold mid way through the session and her sweet brothers did everything to try and make her happy, my favorite trick: two little boys singing "twinkle, twinkle little star" to their baby sister. So precious!
