The Last Moments :: Truth Session :: Portland Photographer
Her email started with everything I wanted, besides the fact that her due date was the next day. Luckily, that baby waited for me and didn't maker their debut!
She wanted to surprised her husband with a truth session - they hadn't done photos yet but knew there should be some documentation of this journey. So I showed up, and there they were. A family of 2 with 2 pups. A baby, with unknown sex is about to make their debut.
These moments, these are truly a moments that only last for a few days - then life changes.. for the better.
until that baby comes, here is Gretchen, Taylor and their pups!

Lauren & Boys :: Portland Family Photographer :: Truth Session
When I pulled up to their house I was met by one of the littles, he was excited someone else was going to come over and take their photos. Their mom, a photographer herself, always takes his photo but this time she needed some of her in them.
Life with littles can seem like groundhog day, the same things. Eat, clean, play, time out repeat. A Monday feels like a Friday, and a Friday feels like a Tuesday. The days are long, but the weeks are short. These moments fly by us, and these little beings grow up entirely to fast.
When Lauren had me over I was excited - she was nervous. Nervous to be in front of the camera - to ...

Well, thankfully they are amazing people and I got a text a few days later asking if we could have a chat. They didn't want much, but after a quick phone call they decided that their story was worth telling. So, 3 weeks later I was camera in hand at their wedding.
The day was a short and sweet one, they said their I do's and they partied hard. They cut a cheesecake and ...

Everyone Deserves Good : Portland Photographers
You know when your scrolling through Instagram and you find that one account with all the beautiful curated photos? The guy with the top bun, tattoos and just perfectly fit. The girl in her high wasted jeans and the beautiful wide brimmed hat. They are in no doubt some BEAUTIFUL spot in a National Park. You know that feed - or something close to it.
Now, heres the thing. There is nothing wrong with that. I mean, Kellen has tattoos and at one point a top knot. I've never looked good in high waisted jeans but I do have that wide brimmed hat. So, don't get me wrong, those photos are amazing and oh so beautiful.. But what if you don' ...

Sarah & Jason :: Married in Reedley, California
When I first got a quick message from Sarah, a long time friend about perhaps shooting her wedding I didn't realize what I was stepping into.
I met Sarah many moons ago when we were both single, living in California and going to small basement church. We bonded over the fact that we both wished we were Canadian! Fast forward YEARS later and she was getting married to a man who has quite the story.
This wedding was filled with so many emotions, and so much love. He was widowed and came with 4 kids, and she came with an open heart. Its amazing, the way these stories have intertwined. Its all because she liked a photo on Facebook. The love tha ...
