pregnant photographer!

this past weekend i shot my last wedding of the season- now i'm on maternity leave through summer!
look for blog postings and complete wedding galleries from annie and eric's wedding in seattle and erica and conan's wedding in portland soon...
in the mean time, here is a photo that katie took while shooting my last job with me. oh my goodness!


baja california

earlier this month i traveled with my sister to baja california to take photos to accompany stories she was working on about travel in that region. the trip was wonderful in so many ways: the warm and sunny weather, quality time with my sister, the beautiful stark scenery of that part of the world, the food.... it was truly an amazing opportunity! i am so excited to see which photos of mine are chosen to appear with the articles, but in the mean time, here are some of my favorites from the trip.


julie & karrie

after postponing our first portrait session because of rain, julie and karrie had weather redemption a couple weeks ago! i met up with these two (and their adorable pugs!) on one of the most beautiful spring days portland has had yet. we walked along the eastside esplanade and took in the amazing views of downtown, the willamette and the steel bridge. the blue skies, the scenery, and this great couple made for an amazing portrait session- thanks you two!


40th anniversary photos!

a couple weeks ago i met up with my mom and dad in portland for a visit and to take some photos of them. this month they are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary- wow! i obviously wasn't a wedding photographer yet in 1968, but i love the old photo and thought it should be included. i like the "then and now" symmetry of the two photos. congratulations mom and dad!
