I have special connections with all of my clients, but these two really left an impression on me.

Because they each have extremely busy schedules, (she is a surgeon) they rarely get to see each other. Capturing their affection for one another came naturally during our time and I couldn’t get over how sweet and gentle they were!

The delicate florals and natural greenery of the surroundings of the arboretum, rose garden and park were the perfect backdrop to their tender love for each other. Their countenance was reserved and quiet, but they weren’t afraid to goof off and laugh together.

I felt honored to capture this elegant couple as they prepare to enter in to a lifetime together!

Mini Magazine reached out to me to do a lifestyle maternity session with Claire Coffee from the NBC TV series Grimm. I of course was more than willing. Claire is such a sweet soul and I know this baby will be so blessed to call her mom. I had the best time with her in her home. It was so relaxed and fun and I walked away so refreshed and happy to be doing what I am. Below are a few of my favorites from our time together. I hope you enjoy!

I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am to share these images with you all. The experience at the Jose Villa Workshops was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I learned so much from all these incredible artists and venders. Below is a wedding at Hacienda Labor De Rivera. All the details from the florals, the Lihihod gown and cape, the location, the overall design, and let’s be honest, just EVERYTHING about this wedding was stunning. I am thrilled I had the opportunity to photograph it all. Hope you enjoy!

Meet Sammi and her boyfriend Branden. Sammi lived with us this past summer and both Branden and her became family after watching countless episodes of Scandal. Sammi was in town a couple weeks back and we all decided to take some time to enjoy the beautiful Columbia Gorge. As you can see, I had to snap a couple photos of these two and maybe I got a little carried away? Love both of these souls! Thought I would share a few favorites with you this lovely morning.
