Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Here you will find a culmination of things including tons of photos of my children, random thoughts on life and my journey to build a Photography business, sneak peeks for clients, and who knows what else :) I.LOVE.PHOTOGRAPHY.

I am a mostly self-taught Wedding and Portrait Photographer and I am always looking for new clients. I prefer on-location, natural light Photography and I am always looking to challenge myself! I recently relocated to Central Oregon and am available for photoshoots in any of the nearby areas. Please feel free to contact me if you like my work and are interested in scheduling a session with me! I would love to hear from you!

Grab some coffee and stay awhile :) And if you see an image you like, feel free to leave a comment...I love comments!

My poor blog has been ignored for some time now, but with good reason....we recently got back from a week long vacation that was definitely needed! We packed the kids up and drove all the way to Virginia Beach, VA to visit some Navy friends that we have known for about 4 years and met when we were all stationed in San Diego...it had been way too long since we last saw them! The drive was long but the kids pulled through and we had a great time. And we had the opportunity to stop for a night on the way home in Ohio to visit more Navy friends of ours that we have missed dearly :) All in all it was a great trip and I am so glad we took the plunge and went!

While in VA, I snapped some photos of the Lemonds' together. They were excited because they never really had engagement photos done (they have been married for three years now) and they needed some updated shots of the two of them. And Allen is getting ready to leave for a deployment and we wanted to get some fun photos that he could take with him while he is away. We went down the beach and boardwalk for a few and then headed to a local park for the rest....I think they turned out great!

Thank you Allen and Megan for spending some time with us and I hope you love your photos....I posted a ton of them because there were so many that I loved :) We wish you guys the best through this deployment and we are here for you always....you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Storyboards are my favorite right now and I love the vintage processing of these shots...

We had some really nice light to work with which is always a plus...
