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!

I was going through some images yesterday and edited a couple more of my Senior Rep, Paige. You can view her first session here. I love the way they turned out! I was thinking to myself how important it is to get everything right straight out of the camera so that very little editing and post-processing is needed. Photoshop is great, but I don't like to spend tons of time editing and I would rather just enhance an image as opposed to completely having to change it! So, today I have decided to post two before and after images. My hope is that this will show people that these photos were enhanced with a little bit of editing, but not changed drastically. And that it is not about what kind of camera you use, but more about how you use it and getting the optimal settings right before having to edit your photos. Enjoy :)
