Say Hello to Channing Averie - 8 weeks old

Miss Channing and I had a photoshoot yesterday while her big sister was at school and I am ob-SESSED with how they turned out. I really didn't want to do them in my apartment because I don't get great light anywhere but the bedroom and I wasn't sure I could pull a photo session off successfully with no props and no help but I am here to tell you that you can make any space into a beautiful photograph. These were all taken on my bed with my blinds open for some really nice light. This one was my favorite of the bunch! I know I'm biased....but holy cow this girl is a cutie!

She has some super captivating eyes. I love this baby!



When I first opened this photo, my first thought was to rotate it so she wasn't upside down, but the more I worked with it the more I really liked this composition. What do you think??



I'm pretty proud of myself for capturing this without someone else there as an extra pair of hands. I had to be quick but it worked!

We love having this little girl in our family! She is perfect for us.

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!
