What a pleasant way to spend an afternoon in Portland! I met the Lim family last week and we adventured around Cathedral Park for a couple hours. Summer is right around the bend and weddings are about to kick into high gear. This is the last photo shoot I have before things get busy soon. I love the anticipation this time of year for a busy and fun summer ahead. Bring it on!

I met superstar crafter Lia Griffith last week. What an incredible woman doing amazing things. I loved seeing her home. It was stunning. Every inch of it is thoughtfully designed, beautiful and cozy. She works from home with her creative team in a beautiful office. The most refreshing part of the trip (aside from meeting her adorable dog Enzo) was learning she grew up posing for her parents who ran a photography business. She completely understands photography, posing, and natural lighting which made her amazing to work with. Also, she is stunning, so that helps too Not only does she create all these amazing projects on her site (http://liagriffith.com) but she also stages and documents them. So cool! I love my fellow talented photographers!

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!
