Stone House

This is my new favorite spot to photograph. The lighting is beautiful in the early morning and before sunset, so it gives me more freedom with scheduling. There are lots of trees, grass, rocks and, of course, the stone house. Here are some of my favorite shots from a session I did there recently:

We even had some fall leaves in the background.

The Swenson Family

Let me start out by saying that I love this family! They're so fun and very photogenic. But sometimes, let's be honest, all the cute pinterest ideas don't matter if the kids aren't cooperating! That's real life. Here's what real life looks like sometimes:
But then, I always manage to catch them at their best too:
Look at these two cute brothers
I love this shot of mom & dad
 And the birthday boy found a rock...that would make any kid smile.
So remember, sometimes family photos can be stressful, but the memories are worth it :)

I admit, I was a little anxious preparing for this photo shoot. I had never had the opportunity to photograph newborn twins before and I didn't know what to expect. I spent hours on pinterest getting ideas. Here's a sneak peak at Alexis and Michael's shoot from this morning:

I seriously can't get enough of them!

Meet Brenda and her baby-to-be

Maternity shoots are my favorite to do. I love a glowing pregnant belly and Brenda was very photogenic on top of it.

Bateman Family

Not only is this family very photogenic, but I love the colors they chose to wear!
 Little Dax getting all the attention!

 Sometimes the candid shots I get are the best!

The Grissom Family

This family, despite having 3 little boys, was really easy to photograph.
 You can almost hear the laughter in this photo!

McInelly Family

I love photographing this family! They live in Washington, so usually I get to do their family shoots when I'm up there visiting my sister. This year they had a new addition...the first granddaughter, Kennedy.

Mom with her daughters and granddaughter:

 Proud Grandma & Grandpa!

This is Kennedy. What a doll!

Brittany & Jackson

I headed up to beautiful Seattle, WA for this wedding. The weather was perfect, of course, so I had amazing lighting to work with.

They were such a fun and beautiful couple to work with and I wish them a "Happily Ever After".

Busy summer!

So far the summer has been busy! Here are some great photos from my last few shoots:
These are my own two cuties, Beckem & Ella sharing some laughs in the orchard.

I love baby-feet-grabbing photos!
 Look at these two cute brothers:
We headed up to Madera Canyon for this family's shoot.

Baby Annabelle

Meet Annabelle. She was born on June 2, 2013.
She was seriously the easiest newborn I've ever photographed. No pee, poop or crying!
