I’ve known and worked with Shannon for over a year for her incredible business Urban Waxx. She is a strong, intelligent, gorgeous and hilarious business woman. Last week I had the pleasure of meeting her family and documenting her two adorable kids. We ran around, picked dandelions, and climbed trees. It was the perfect way to spend a sunny day.
Is this weather for real? It has been stunning in Oregon this Spring with blue skies, sunshine, blossoms! It’s stunning! Not the typical springtime drizzle. Katie and Chris chose the perfect venue for their engagement shoot during this early summer. We met at the Oregon Garden in Silverton Oregon. It’s a massive property with all types of landscapes, trees, flowers, fountains and more. We spent Saturday morning enjoying the weather and capturing some love. These two are SO cuddly and sweet. My goodness it was easy to work with them. I love love, especially when it is so easy to see in a couple.
I met Phoebe and Ze’en last week on their one year wedding anniversary. It was such an honor to spend a couple hours with them as they celebrated their love and commitment at the Hoyt Arboretum. They are planning to take trips and have portraits taken every year on their anniversary. How cool is that? This first trip was to my incredible home – Portland Oregon. Neither of them have been here before so I gushed about our incredible food scene and reminded them time and again how fortunate they were to have 60 degree weather and sunshine on their trip. It was perfect!
On a recent trip to Bend we visited with this incredible family. We met 6-month-old Ben for the first time and he was all smiles. Almost 3-year-old Cora has a huge personality packed into that tiny kid body. She is so smart, silly and always on the go. We had a moment one morning during our trip to photograph these four in downtown Bend. Complete with the bribes of pancakes and plastic toy planes on the other end of the shoot, they all cooperated and smiled perfectly. Oh, and sweet Walt, the Great Dane Irish Wolf Hound is the sweetest, most cuddly giant I’ve ever met. I loved how Cora is the center of his world. He watches her closely and plays with her so gently and patiently.
Thank you to all my clients, fans and followers who have made my dreams to be an artist and a creator a reality for the last 10 years! YOU, my fans and my clients have made this possible.
