Two weekends ago I got to photograph three week old Lawrence. I arrived at the family’s house in The Dalles and was so happy to discover a small, sweet house flooded with natural light and two beautiful little boys. Lawrence was beautiful, sleeping in his bassinet, and his proud big brother hovered nearby. The whole shoot was sweet, relaxed, and playful, which is my favorite type of energy to photograph.

Early this fall our family headed up to a friend’s cabin. Our other friends, Ben and Lindsey were there with their daughter Emmeline. I’d photographed Emmeline when she was a newborn, and hadn’t seen her in quite some time. She’s grown into a beautiful toddler, and she’s got a baby brother on the way. This wasn’t a full family photography session, but she is one photogenic little girl…

I first met Katie and her beautiful girls at our neighborhood park. Her daughters are close in age to mine and we quickly found ourselves crossing paths constantly. From the time we met I was struck by how sweet, joyful, and engaging her two children were. Then, just before the holidays she asked me if I could photograph her family and I jumped at the chance. Once you scroll down to look through this family session you’ll understand why; Ellie and Mary couldn’t be any cuter. The weather was turning very cold the day we took these family pictures so we are going to do another mini-session this summer. I can’t wait!

Nicole and Aaron contacted me to come take photos in early fall, which happens to be my favorite time of year for taking photographs in Hood River. The trees are bright and starting to change, the apples are ripe, and the lights is golden. Their son, Henry, had just turned four months old. He was dressed in dashing button-ups and bow ties and we spent the afternoon capturing his silly faces out in the Keim’s orchard. This was a really fun family session.

Late this summer my beautiful sister welcomed her second, and third sons! Her twin boys were born at the end of August and I couldn’t wait to see them (and photograph them). It was so wonderful to have an opportunity to photograph all three of my nephews. Josh loved playing with his baby brothers (a.k.a. riding trucks and planes around and on them), and the baby boys enjoyed every second of it (a.k.a. slept). I’m so proud of my big sister and her truly extraordinary family.
