I had a fabulous senior session with the georgous Kensie! All 5’9″ of her got out of the car and I quickly turned around to go get my step-ladder :)We had a great time shooting around the Pearl and she brought her BFF with her for some comic relief plus she proved to be a great photo assistant too! Kensie is a dancer (unfortunately just had some serious knee surgery)and has plans to go to NYU! She was one of those people that I could have kept photographing for hours!

Well hello there Brady, aren’t you a cute little guy! You have a sweet (sometimes silly) sister that sure does love you and always wants to help mommy out. Thanks for hanging out with me for a few hours and being such a good baby. I can’t wait to see you when you are sitting up… don’t worry, you’ll love it!

I did the Nelson’s family photos last year and was so excited  that they asked me again this year! We had a great time over at Lewis and Clark and once again, the girls were amazing. I could photograph them all day- they are so funny together, such different personalities, and so great in front of the camera!

I was so excited when the Bissell’s asked me to take their family photos- they are such a fun couple and I had yet to meet their two children. What a beautiful night at the park. Cohen was hilarious, a total chatter box and he was running the show. He told us when to stand, sit, run… including me. Towards the end he figured out if he just wrestled with me, tickled me… tried to lick me… it’s hard for me to take his picture! He was so funny I didn’t mind :) Miss Claire was a doll, just quiet and staying close to mom and dad. I was amazed though that both kids were under the weather and did just great!

This is the third time that I’ve done family photos with the Boyd’s and it’s been so fun each time! I love it that they show up to their session ready to go. Snacks are packed, the boys are ready to be themselves/silly/fun/loving/relaxed and mom and dad just go along for the ride. After spending the evening around L&C we headed over to the track so that the boys could unleash their new track shoes and Hayden even brought his prized baton. Future track stars- look out!

It was so fun to have another family session with the Kopacz family! Riley was a baby when I shot them two years ago and now she is a big girl! McKenzie is the same, has ideas on what pictures she wants taken and and is totally silly. Mom and Dad, still SO incredibly relaxed (even when the kids were crazy)! We decided to go out to a friend’s farm in Forest Grove and it was perfect. I loved it when they pulled up and mom not only has change of clothes for everyone but props! Flowers, chairs, balloons and her old red wagon from when she was a little girl- awesome. We had a great time exploring around the barn, in the corn or just running in the field. I loved going through their images, you could just tell they were having a great time, enjoying eachother and being themselves. By the end, I was cracking up, because Riley was tuckering out, got a second wind and went crazy! She was running after me, attacking her dad, chasing her sister, jumping on all of them- too fun and wish that I could post them all! Can’t wait to shoot with you guys again :)

College friends of mine were home for the summer and came and stayed a couple of days with us.  They live in Barcelona/Girona, Spain and run an adventure/site-seeing company ( I know, how amazing would that be?) http://www.spanish-trails.com . If you are heading over there, you must check them out! They have the best activities and tour guides. Anyways, there was a ton of Star Wars, pirating, transformers, bike riding and light-saber fights, jumping and wrestling with three boys… my daughter just had to go with the flow. One night Tracy asked if we could ‘squeeze’ in a quick shoot before dinner… how do I say no?! Not to mention, they photograph so well!! It was the fastest shoot I have ever done, short and sweet and that was all we needed. Now, I just need to get over to Spain next year to do their family photos! :)

I was asked to photograph a 1 year birthday party and I was excited because I had taken her 6 month photos and she was a doll! The best part was that her little 6 month old cousin was driving down from Idaho with her parents to surprise the family! What makes this more wonderful is that little Mia has her second heart surgery in two weeks and she’ll get to go back home with tons of hugs, prayers and well-wishes from so many friends and family! You gotta love it when people are genuinely surprised, so sweet and yes, there was the ‘ugly cry’ shots that had to be taken. :)The rest of the day was a great family party celebrating Anna turning 1 and Mia being such a little fighter!
