Jennifer & Brian 7-19-14 Sunriver, OR

Seriously - I don't even know where to begin at how gorgeous our setting was yesterday, but I will share some pictures so I don't go ON and ON.  Because I could...

Also, the best man (Chris) and his wife Erin are good friends of mine, so we snuck out right behind the bride and groom to grab a couple quick shots of the two of them as well :)

I drove 4 hours down to Bend with my 2 kiddos and a baby-sitter. Then, I drove another 20 minutes to this amazing golf course that overlooks Mount Bachelor to be able to capture some amazing memories for Brian and Jennifer Anderson. They were an adorable couple that were surrounded by friends and family speaking nothing but good things about them throughout the evening. The speeches were heartfelt and my friend, Chris Dixon, sang the song that they were listening to when they first realized they fell in love.  Here is that performance:

As it stands right now, I drove the 4 hours home today, did a load of laundry and packed my kids up in a different car to drive 2 hours MORE north to church camp to video high school kids this week.  So, I am hooked up to a personal hotspot trying to get all this amazing-ness uploaded so they can enjoy their memories, their week, and I can let loose this week trying not to get my lenses pummeled by crazy high schoolers! :)

Please enjoy their demo video as well!!!!

Williams Family

I feel so blessed to have so many great friends through out our marriage.  Kevin and Shelby are one of those!  They have been an amazing example to Josh and me in how to parent, work, and "do life" together like a family. We love them so much and miss them greatly now that they live in Seattle and not in Vancouver/Portland by us.

We were so lucky to have time to stop and see them and capture their family quickly at a park down the hill from their house. Can you believe they have that view so close?  Ironically we have a similar view to Mt. Hood down by us!  I love that we have this similarity!

Miss you guys!!!

Newborn Laila

I have loved newborns this past year.  I have loved learning more about them and how to photograph them. I know that I still have a long ways to go, but I see growth in every single session. Laila's session was no different.  Her momma, Mollie, is a friend of mine through being a previous client (I did her engagement photo shoot and did video at her wedding!!!).  So it was really exciting for me to invite her over and take a couple shots of her new baby girl for fun!  Enjoy!

Fireworks - 2014

Thank you to friends and family for indulging my photography habit and blowing off fireworks just so I can take photos of them! :)
