::Justine & Chris:: Oregon Lifestyle Photographer

I have known Justine for several years now, her gorgeous face has made numerous appearances on my blog.  :)  To put it bluntly, I love this girl.  She and I became friends rather quickly, I have often referred to her as my muse, as she has inspired countless photo sessions, sometimes behind the camera and sometimes in front of it.  There are few people in this world like her and I feel so blessed just to know her and to call her my friend.

::Carisa & Shane:: Oregon Photographer

We recently got together with these two to do this session, as Shane was only days away from deployment.  I have known Shane since the 6th grade and can easily say that he has always been one of my favorite people.  :)  When we were in school, he and a few other friends would come over to play Uno with my grandma, which we always talk about whenever we see each other.  :)  Shane is a natural comedian, so you can guarantee that when you are around him, you will beClick for more »

::Tristine & Garrett:: Oregon Wedding Photographer | Ata Vista Farm

I have been spending a lot of time trying to figure out everything I want to say and how I want to say it.  There is so much within me, bursting to come out, but as I sit here, I am struggling to put any of it into words… I come from a very tight-knit family, my cousins have always felt more like brothers to me- and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I have watched Garrett grow from an accident-prone boy with skinned up knees to an incredible, loving man.Click for more »

::Posing & Lighting Workshop:: Portland Oregon | TNT Workshops

It was over 2 years ago, while working at the credit union, that I had a lengthy conversation with my dear friend, Justine.  The conversation was all about a vintage inspired photo shoot, complete with WWII aircraft, and how I was dying to make it happen.  I didn’t have access to planes, but I had a vision.  It was about a week or two later than Justine came to work with a huge smile on her face and the July 2009 issue of Harper’s Bazaar in her hands.  SheClick for more »
