Baggenstos Pumpkin Patch | Musa Family

When Summer reached out to me about wanting to do a family session at a pumpkin patch, I freaked out! It was her 10-month olds first time to a pumpkin patch so I knew it was going to be the cutest ever! This is exactly the kind of family shoot that I love to do. Just you and your loved ones hanging out and being cute. It was slightly rainy (because Portland) but we made it work umbrellas and all! So excited to share this shoot!

In October I held fall mini sessions at Jenkin's Estate and got to photograph this adorable family. How freaking cute are these kids!? The little girl, Cosette was the only person able to make baby Marcus laugh. Can't wait to capture this family again next year!

Backyard Beach Wedding | Kaitlyn + Janden

I met Kaitlyn and Janden for the first time on their wedding day. As soon as I said hello they both welcomed me into their lives as if I'd known them for years. Kaitlyn is so loving and thoughtful and seriously the smiliest person I've ever met. It was so clear why Janden fell in love with her. They're the kind of couple that you look at and it just makes sense. 

They had an intimate backyard ceremony with only their closest friends and family. It was seriously magical watching the sun go down as they said their "I do's".  I'm so happy that I was able to capture this beautiful day.

I'm so happy Abby reached out to me for her senior shoot! She's totally adorable and was so fun to work with. She was a little nervous at first because she had never had professional pictures taken but...as you can see...turned into a complete model almost immediately. She brought her best friend along too so we got to take cute friend pics!

We had so much fun at Emma's senior shoot! We found some cute spots around Cooper Mountain Nature Park and hung out as it usually goes with senior sessions. She really wanted a field backdrop so it worked out perfectly! What an amazing end of summer evening.

Abiqua Country Estate Wedding | Sarah + Jason

I met Sarah and Jason for the first time at their Silver Falls engagement session. I was so excited for their wedding afterwords because their love was so easy to capture on camera. It was so obvious that they truly were meant to be together.

Cut to their wedding day 3-months later held at the amazing Abiqua Country Estate in Silverton, Oregon. They couldn’t have chosen a more perfect venue. We were surrounded by beautiful green trees and a gorgeously manicured landscape. Even with the smoky skies from the Canadian wildfires, the light couldn’t have been more magical.

Within the first 5 minutes of meeting the wedding party and invited guests, it was clear that I was not the only one who saw how generous and loving Sarah and Jason’s beautiful souls were. Everyone there was so elated to share this moment with them and I had a hard time holding in tears during the speeches and prayers.

It was a gift to my life to meet these beautiful people and their families. I will never forget this perfect day.

 

Thank you so much to my second shooter Michelle Allan for helping me capture so many special moments.

Washington Park Engagement | Stephen + Melrose

Washington Park Engagement | Stephen + Melrose

Stephen and Melrose reached out to me a few months ago to shoot their wedding and engagement session and I was SO EXCITED! Stephen lives in Texas and was coming to Portland only a few days before their wedding so we could fit their engagement shoot in before the big day. We went to the beautiful Washington Park and enjoyed the PERFECT golden light.

Aaahhh! I love this shoot so much. My friend (and favorite model if you can't tell) came back from her 3-month journey abroad. We got to catch up and stroll around the near empty International Rose Test Garden while making art together. My favorite kind of friend date. Rae also has a blog that you should totally check out if you're interested in wellness and cute pictures.

I've known Jade for about 10 years and she's one of my oldest friends. We met when we lived in the same condominiums and played on the playground together occasionally during summers. When I was old enough I started to babysit her and we had the best time eating pizza and talking about boys. Now Jade is off to start a huge chapter in her life - college! I'm glad we got to do this fun late senior shoot before she left for Ashland.

I can't begin to explain how lovely this couple was. They were both so warm and welcoming and they're love was so true and apparent. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in August. I can only imagine the amount of joy and positive energy that will envelop their day.
