Hillary and Zander....and Lance....

I know Hillary through a friend of mine. We are both super into horses and, therefore, this was a wedding I could really sink my teeth into. Her and her husband are pretty hard core...as in they do fox hunting in Illinois.... FOX HUNTING!! How cool is THAT!! I had so much fun at their wedding, it was hot, and I was 8 months pregnant, but it was so worth it. These two know how to party!

I loved this photo. Their love for animals really shows in this one.

I couldn't help myself. It was just too perfect.

Sasha and Efe

I have known Sasha since I was about 13 so we have become good friends.  She and her husband, Efe, got married at the beginning of the year but haven't yet had "engagement photos" done. So we took care of that right away! They are both photogenic, THAT'S for sure!

Diamond 57 Purses

Is this chick not GORGEOUS!?! Her hair is nothing short of amazing and she really represented Diamond 57 Cowboy Boot Purses perfectly! Its always fun to do photoshoots for Sue and capture the artistic visions that she puts into her hand made purses. Lots of talent for sure!

Baby Caden

This was my first newborn shoot in a few years. I did NOT feel confident when I started setting up because I had no idea what to expect. Luckily, I know the parents really well so it wasn't as nerve racking as it could have been. Once I got started it was a TON of fun!!

He was so good for us while we took pictures. We were playing around with him for three hours!! He was such a trooper.

He is just SO cute!

Congrats Cameron and Emily on the new baby!!

Ahlia's maternity shoot

I got to take Ahlia's engagements AND her wedding pictures last year and now she and her husband are getting ready to have a baby boy!! I was so excited to take these maternity pictures for them!!

The light and colors were so gorgeous that night. I love the colors reflecting in the water! And not to mention that Ahlia is super photogenic.

She has the most amazing eyes... period.

Will and Sierra

Sierra and her husband's family were in town for his brothers wedding last week. They are from Vegas and used to live in Idaho at the same time that my husband and I lived there. I took their engagement pictures a few years ago and it was so nice to be able to see them again! We had a lot of fun shooting these pictures, other than the fact that it was extremely hot that day (from an Oregonian's standpoint... remember... they're from vegas.) but we made it through with out dying! 

That is one good looking family!

Dan and Beth's Wedding!!

My little brother got married this last weekend and his bride has AmAzInG taste! I wasn't the hired photographer but I brought my camera anyway so I could take some pictures of my own :) just LOOK at these flowers!! They were so flippin' gorgeous!! My good friend Deborah designed all the flower arrangements for the wedding and they we so beautiful!!

This was her bouquet! So lovely!

Ok so this was the backdrop for the ceremony, stunning.... even with the torrential downpour! We were all prepared for summer weather and mosquitos and just as the ceremony was about to begin - THIS happened....  the bride made this arch and wasn't even able to stand under it! We were stuck in a tent. 
If there was ever a couple that were completely meant to be together, its these two. I have NEVER seen my brother like this with ANY girl. But when you get Dan and Beth in a room together, you can really feel how much they love each other. And I am SO excited that Beth is a permanent part of our family now! She is so awesome!

This is by far my favorite photo out of the ones I took. I was really trying to stay out of the photographer's way but I'm so glad I snagged this gem!

Congrats Dan and Beth! 

This was the reception venue.... GORGEOUS!!!
