Ayla in her Winter Hat

Our friends Aaron and Val have been staying with us the past few months while they sold their home in WA and bought another home down here. They were out the door to their new place today (in the process of moving) and Ayla looked so cute in her winter hat that I wanted to snap a few photos of her. :) In this first shot she was saying "shoe" as she was playing with her shoe.

Thanksgiving at the Beach

Josh, Jude and I got to spend our Thanksgiving with family at the beach and we had a great time! Lots of food, relaxation and card games. :) The weather was beautiful and I was amazed at how blue the sky was! One night we went for a walk on the beach with family and we got to watch the sun set as a full moon was rising over the little beach town. It was really beautiful! God's creation is spectacular!
My heart is so thankful to Him for all He's given me! All I am and all I have is because of the Lord. I love my Savior.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday too!

Happy Girl!

Sophia was one of the happiest babies I've ever photographed! She was all smiles and has the sweetest little one too. Here are a few of my favorites. :)

Katie's Senior Photos

Katie was one of my two photo reps this year and she did such a wonderful job!! We had fun doing her promo shoot last spring and it was great spending a few hours with her again this fall. She's so much fun to be around.
(By the way, doesn't she have amazing hair?! It's so beautiful.)
Katie is a growing photographer herself and has quite the eye!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from a few weeks ago.

Sweet Baby James

Our good friends & neighbors had a baby 3 weeks ago! His name is James and he's as sweet as can be. (You might remember seeing James' older sister, Daphne, in some of my post in the past). I don't remember my Jude "ever being so tiny"... something we all say, but it's true! I think I was too sleep deprived to remember much. :)

Well, I got to do my very first newborn shoot ever with baby James and I was sooooo excited about it! Rosie brought him over and I put together two settings I'd had in mind and we went to work. James was such a good sport and after having a full belly and heater blowing on him, curled right up and slept right where we laid him! He's a handsome baby boy and here are a few of my favorites.

Melea & Jeremiah's Wedding Day

I'm so happy to finally be able to share these photos with the bride and groom! Everyone's been so patient with this season's crazy schedule and deserves a pat on the back... and a Starbucks... I feel like I should be handing out Starbucks with everyone's CDs, but I wouldn't know what to order you, so I'll just leave it at a nice thought... :)

This wedding was on the river in Molalla on some beautiful property. And this bride and groom were surrounded by all their closest friends that day, and these two were so full of joy and LOVE for one another!

My friend Tyler assisted me at this wedding too (Wilson River Photography - check him out) and I included a few of his snaps from this wedding here on my blog too.
