Today my family went out to our friend, Ben’s, farm – Oregon Organic Acres to marvel at his beautiful creatures, and marvel we did. We tromped around in the mud, and had a miraculous little rain break that ended just as we headed out. And it becomes more and more clear that the slow and […]

Oregon Organic Acres

I honestly don’t know where to start with sharing the beautiful, tender love story of Nick & Anna. It is truly epic. I met them in person for the first time at a little coffee shop on a rainy Portland day Thanksgiving weekend 2015. As with any meeting of people you’ve known only on the […]

I have dreamed of having a floral half sleeve done by Alice Kendall of Wonderland Tattoo for at least 6 years… and in September we finally made it happen. I love it so much, and am so tickled that my incredibly talented friend Katy Tuttle was able to photograph it for me!!!

One warm, no HOT, summer evening, I got to photograph some of my favorite smart, powerful, creative, beautiful young ladies. These guys are my girl’s best friends, and I absolutely adore them. So much. Now head on over to the fantastic Stacey Montgomery‘s […]

10 on 10 March edition

Hello! Welcome to 10-on-10 February Edition! Those of you who came from Breanna Peterson’s blog, thank you for following the blog circle to me! Portland rarely gets snow.

10 on 10 February Style

Well hello there! Its been awhile! I was delightedly invited to join a most awesome group of photographers for a 10-on-10 project for this year.  I am notoriously awful at projects… when I think of doing a 365 photo project I feel a panic attack coming on. Last year I attempted the Sundays weekly project, […]
