We captured Lori & Michael’s maternity session in the beautiful rhododendron gardens of Crystal Springs — one of my absolute favorite places to photograph. Fall was coming to a close, and winter felt very near. It was a bit windy, and brisk, with a light mist in the air. But that didn’t stop us from finding the beauty in every little nook of the garden! While we captured photos, leaves having already changed color, gracefully fluttered down and decorated the ground in a mosaic of colors. Lori & Michael couldn’t wait to meet their little baby girl in just a few weeks. You can just see the excitement in their faces.
Ramona & DJ are simply a match made in heaven. They've been sweethearts since high school, followed each other to college, and have now graduated from WSU together too. This session was to celebrate their love, and all that they have accomplished together. But as an amazing twist to this sweet couple's graduation story, DJ surprised us all and proposed to Ramona AT graduation!! I am so excited for these two lovebirds as they begin their journey towards marriage. Many years of hard work and happy memories have brought them to this point, and I am sure there are many more years of wonderful memories to come. Congratulations Ramona & DJ on both your graduations and engagement!! I can't wait to see you two say "I Do!"
This sweet (and super stylish!) couple is about to have their first baby and I couldn't be more happy for them!! The day of their session, I asked Matt and Ashely if they had brought any props to their session that they wanted me to photograph. To my delight, they pulled out a pair of the cutest little brown leather baby shoes I have ever seen! And not only were they adorable on their own, but by coincidence, Matt & Ashely's shoes even matched!! I couldn't resist incorporating the shoes into several of their images.
We photographed their session at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden amongst weeping willows, and Portland's beautifully lush backdrop. Just by looking at their images you can tell how deep their love for each other is, and what loving parents they will make. It's days like these I get so excited about my job!! I love capturing these priceless memories for my clients to cherish for years to come. And nothing brings me more joy than getting to share them with you!
Check back soon to see Matt & Ashley's baby boy, Henry, once he's born in a couple weeks! (P.S. How precious is that name!?!)
