::Be Inspired:: An Interview with Matt Kennedy

Today has been a bit surreal, to say the least.  :)  Yesterday I was approached by Kevin, one of the amazing guys from Showit, asking if I wanted to be a guest on their live show today.  My response was an immediate and completely stunned, “Um, yes!!”  As many of know, I have been a Showit user for years now and I absolutely LOVE their products, as well as all of the amazing things they’ve done for the photography industry.  Jeff and I tune in to theirClick for more »

::Garrett & Tristine:: Eugene Engagement Photographer

I have always been very close to my family, growing up we all spent a lot of time together.  Me being the only girl, I had to learn to be rough and tumble from an early age to keep up with all of my boy cousins and brother.  :)  We would spend hours playing cops & robbers, hide-and-seek, freeze tag, Marco Polo and occasionally I would convince them to let me dress them up.  Haha… No, Garrett, I am not going to post the evidence.  ;)  I know that I am a luckyClick for more »

::Alyssa & Ryan:: Eugene Engagement Photographer

Wedding season is just around the corner, which means engagement sessions are in full swing here!  :)  We absolutely LOVE weddings and are always giddy when June arrives!  Engagement sessions are a vital piece of the wedding puzzle for us, we love to get our clients in front of our camera before their wedding day so we can see them interact with each other and learn what type of relationship they have.  Are they super romantic, do they like to play and joke with eachClick for more »

::Be Inspired:: An Interview with Emma & Josh Smith

I have to begin this post giving thanks to the brave ones who put their lives on the line for our country.  Having family member’s in the military, I know how it feels to have them be hundreds or even thousands of miles away, fearing where they are or what they’re doing or how they are.  From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU, for all that you have done and all that you will do for our country.  :) Last week, while in Seattle, Jeff and I were finally ableClick for more »

Happy Sunday, readers!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  We are celebrating the holiday weekend by staying low-key and finding fun things to do as a family, which has been absolute perfection!  :)  Our lives have been a bit chaotic lately, which we love, but it’s also nice to settle down and just unwind a bit.  There are so many amazing adventures in store and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it all, some of it seems almost surreal.  We have soClick for more »

::Seattle PASS Premier::

We were giddy- talking about a mile a minute, grinning from ear to ear, unable to control our overwhelming excitement.  This is usually how we feel whenever we are around the amazing crew at Showit, however, with the addition of Zach & Jody and Promise Tangeman, it was escalated to all new high.  I mean, we were so thrilled, we couldn’t fall asleep until 4am that night.  Or, I guess that be considered morning…  :) Showit‘s main goal is freedom forClick for more »

::Ashton, Caitlin, Cydney & Morgan:: Bend Senior Portrait Photographer

We just got back from Seattle last night and let me tell you the past few days have been an absolute whirlwind!  :)  We were fortunate enough to be able to attend Showit’s PASS Premier launch in Seattle and telling you it was AMAZING would be a huge understatement.  It was so much more than that!  I’m not going to get into too many details yet, but be on the look out for my post tomorrow and I will tell you all about my amazing experience with the ShowitClick for more »

::Be Inspired:: An Interview with Zach & Jody Gray

I am so excited about all of the events that are going to take place this week!  For those of you who don’t know, Showit is officially on tour and are currently making their way, via a killer tour bus, up to Seattle, Washington.  There has been a lot of talk about what exactly this tour will be about, while I still don’t know *exactly* what it is, I do know that they are getting ready to launch brand new software called PASS.  If you know anything aboutClick for more »

::Look who’s 30!!!::

The day is here, May 19th 2011. We all look at numbers of age and kinda get a little scared when a new set comes in and the old set goes away. 20′s are gone and 30′s are here. Holli has not been scared for this day though, and why should she be? She is still a kid at heart. When the sun shines she will kick off her shoes and run in the grass with the kids. Open a box of sidewalk chalk and the WHOLE area is going to get doodled on. Snow day meansClick for more »

::In Memory of Officer Kilcullen::

There is something to be said about living in a smaller town.  When it comes time to celebrate, we cheer together, louder than most.  When it comes time to rally, we pull together, like no other.  When it comes time to grieve, we mourn together, all feeling the pain.  Eugene is a tight-knit community, which is one of the things I love most about the town I have spent 29 (almost 30!) years of my life in. Tragedy struck here a few weeks ago and it affected all of us.Click for more »

::Be Inspired:: An Interview with Lisa Otto

The last 3 to 4 weeks of my life have been complete and utter chaos.  But the good kind, you know?  Lots of sessions, loads of editing, road trips, out of state house guests, the workshop…  I could seriously go on and on.  We had to take a little hiatus from the blog, which included a little mini break from posting the Be Inspired Interviews.  We truly LOVE bringing these interviews to you, it has been so great getting to know our peers better and share theirClick for more »

::Olesa:: Portland Senior Portrait Photographer

I am so humbled by the outpouring of love and support I have received from the attendees who came out to our Be Inspired Workshop last week, as well as from my peers in this industry who have been my personal cheerleaders.  I appreciate so much more than I could ever begin to express.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!  The Be Inspired Workshop is so near and dear to my heart and something that I am so passionate about- it was a dream come true to share withClick for more »

::Ben & Mindy:: Eugene Lifestyle Photographer

I have to start this post by wishing all of the amazing mommies out there a Happy Mother’s Day! :) I can easily say that there is nothing better in this world than being a mommy. Today was an amazing day for me, one that I spent with my hubby and kiddos. Although we really didn’t go anywhere or do anything out of the ordinary, we spent it together, and there is no place I’d rather be than with them. :) I hope your day was just as perfect!!
