The Smith girls

Busy, busy, busy! It just so happened that all of my October shoots fell within 10 days. I am a little blind now, with how much I have been sitting in front of this computer. But, this was my last until November, and what a great one to end on. These girls were SO easy! Not only were they beautiful, but completely understood what I wanted them to do, and added their own uniqueness to every shot. I also loved the new location my husband found for me on his way home from work! It had everything I love using; a barn, a variety of fences, a field, bright autumn trees, and even some train tracks. The only things missing were some barrels! :) I really liked the colors they chose. They went perfectly with this spot and season.

I am absolutely LOVING my new chair!

The trees were so perfect! I knew we had to use this spot quick before the leaves all fell.

And we just had to get some with their cute little pup "Max."

Thanks again girls. You were beautiful, inside and out!

The Wedding After

This was such a fun experience for me! Josh and Colette got married in July, and I actually did their engagements back in March. Well, this time they wanted to get back in their wedding attire and get some more non-traditional pictures. I LOVED it! I have been wanting to do a shoot like this for a long time. So, we started out at a little field in Beaverton for the classic country, then headed to the east side for the grungy and urban. We had a blast!Like my new chair?? It was my Goodwill score of the week!I love these! She looks like a supermodel!We definitely got some strange looks, putting a beautiful bride in the grungiest part of town...but that's what I loved about it!
Thanks so much you guys. This really was such a special treat for me!

The Kotka Family

I had the privilege of photographing this great couple and their dog, Ella, this past week! We got rained out last weekend so I was very excited to see the sun on Saturday morning! It only took about 2 weeks but we finally found a cute little park/trail in Beaverton to meet at! I kept finding all these great spots around my area but they all turned out to be either "Private Property" or "No Trespassing." I was getting shut down everywhere, but then we found this, and it worked! This is Ella. She is definitely a part of the family!

They were so great in front of the camera. I felt like all these shots were actual moments they shared, and that's what I love about photography!

She has such beautiful eyes!

Thanks for your patience and flexibility guys-I'm so glad we finally met up and that it worked out so well!

Little Miss Kylee

Photographing this girl was such a riot! She has such a personality; we were all laughing nearly the whole time! We met down in the Pearl to find some fun brick and old architecture. She was a natural in front of the camera, a super-model in the making! She did keep me on my toes, however-she is such a busy girl. If I wanted a shot, I had to take it quick!
I love this one...she has to know she is cute!

She would just make these faces randomly throughout the shoot! So hilarious!
Thanks guys for the fun time, your patience and enduring the cold!
