3 + 2 = Love

One of things I love the very most about photographing families is that I get to be a witness to pure love and adoration. These photos of Miss Saoirse and her parents are such clear testaments to how much she is loved. The wonderment when they gaze at her is so powerful. I feel so […]

Her Name Means Freedom – Portland Family Photography

I met Sonja several years ago, while she was the co-owner of Spielwerk Toys in the Sellwood neighborhood. (the Sellwood location is now a thing of the past, but the Williams St store is GORGEOUS! Stop in often!) Sonja is as lovely as they come, and we have had many insightful, supportive conversations over the […]
