Peterson Family...{San Diego Family Photographer}

I know, I am behind. These next few are from my San Diego mini-sessions last Oct.
Wait, did you say LAST Oct? Yep, I did...right after I got home from shooting these bad boys I found out I was pregnant and the sickness came..and pretty much didn't leave until I delivered.
These are one of my very bestest friends children. I love her, I love them. Here are a few of my favs.

Baby Time...

I am super excited to have my last little baby in 2 weeks and 4 days. :) Yes, I am counting down.
Obviously I have been terrible at blogging but this baby has made me pretty dang sick for the WHOLE 9 months. I will resume shooting after baby is born and I spend some time with my family.
I will be doing some small sessions in Utah end of July. I can only take 2 more, so if you are interested let me know.
August is booked for Portland, and the first part of Sept. If you need senior pics or holiday/family pictures please contact me soon!
This year is going to be about my little ones! ;)
I will post pictures when Charlotte Kate arrives... happy summer time to you!
Wish me LUCK!

Nay Family...{San Diego Family Photographer}

Man, I always have the most adorable families...beautiful parents, beautiful kids, and a few Matilda Jane dresses, and we are in business.
This is another California mini-session...most of my clients do Christmas cards along with their session and I have to say it was one of my favorites!
Thanks Nay family...anytime you want to come out and play golf in Oregon, I have a good connection! :) (and us girls will shop, I also have a few connections there!)

PS. Business news!!! I am booked solid through June when I start my maternity leave. Any new sessions need to be in Aug/Sept. You can contact me if you want more info.


Waldron Family....{San Diego Family Photographer}

This is one of my favorite families. Seriously their kids are just beautiful,(not that the parents are real shabby either).
So not only do I love shooting them, and hanging out to see how big the kids are, but they just happened to be my very first customer when I started.
I told Missi (the momma)that I needed a beautiful family to practice on and she graciously said yes. It just happened that she was pregnant we got to do maternity, newborn, and family Christmas cards all in about 3 months.
I will never forget that she took a chance on me when I started and she has since referred many a customer this way. Thank you day if you ever want to sell a child I am first in line. ;)
You can see their starting sessions here (umm, just reminder that I was just starting, try to ignore the neon colors and crazy blues) ;)
and here and here and here woo, we've come along way...newborn cards, christmas cards, baptism cards and everything in between.
Love you guys...sorry it took soooooo long. ;)


Kolb Family {San Diego Family Photographer}

I know, many of you have seen this lovely family on FB, but I am going to put a serious effort into blogging the next 12 families from Oct thru the present.
I wish I could say that at 24 weeks pregnant I feel better..but sadly that is not the case. I am still super nauseous which is soooo fun! I am very excited for our little girl to arrive this summer. Until then, I will make a valiant charge to blog more. (you've heard this right?) I promise.
This is the start of my mini-session in the San Diego area. I love the light down there, it's been interesting learning the difference between San Diego, Salt Lake, and Portland, but it keeps me on my toes.
What a beautiful, California can see more on my FB page.

Emily King....Papers Edge


So last year I had the chance to take some pictures for my friend Emily and her AMAZING company Papers Edge. Not only does she have an the coolest art, she has an great, clean style that I love. And you will too.
A few days ago Nie Nie featured her work on her blog and her artist interview...go here
It is super fun seeing my photos in print again, and her great interview.
I need to scan the beautiful art she did for my Ella and Zach. She made each around their room colors and likes...beautiful.
Go see her stuff...she sells limited edition prints and things go fast. I am in LOVE with her missionary piece and want it for my sister.
See her full interview and my pictures here.
Lovely work Emily...I wish you all the success in the world!

Bates Senior Pictures {Portland, Oregon Senior Photographer}

There is something really great about talking senior pictures. It takes me back to the good old days of when I used to put a small beauty mark above my mouth to make me look more like Cindy Crawford. (don't be jealous you didn't think of it first) Which as a strawberry blonde is sorta hard to pull off.
But high school was a great time for me...I loved it. First loves, first time I got my license suspended (long story, but I am the BEST driver now trust me), I even went to college to be a music teacher..that is until I actually student taught in a high school and then changed my major to PR in my last year. Oh the choices and craziness. Good times. Good times.
Well onto this beauty. She is a stunner and pretty dang sweet..I loved that she is an equestrian. (I hope I used this term correctly, I know nothing about horses except that they are big, and seem pretty nice). Anyway, she had an awesome outfit and I loved how her pictures turned out. Here are a few of my favorites.
Thanks Rachel! Good luck with everything in your last year of high school.
