Adam & Erica

Adam and Erica are one of the most laid back (yes, even you, Erica), friendly, open, and fun couples I have ever met.  Photographing their wedding was truly a joy and was the furthest thing from work I have experienced in a long time.  They truly are a joy to be around, and they radiate love

Adam and Erica got married at a thoroughbred ranch in Wallowa County.  Their country-themed wedding was amazing, beautiful, and radiated love. Continue reading

One Quick {out} Take

My daughter and I ventured into the freezing (literally – it was 10° Fahrenheit) woods today trying to bring an idea I had in my head for a photoshoot to life.  I have been going through the images tonight, and they are exactly what I was hoping they would be.  At one point, I was having her blow some glitter from her hands, and the first time she did it, she got a little too enthusiastic.  Notice the puffed cheeks and cloud of glitter?  I was about four feet away from her and got showered with it!

I love that Reagan is so willing to be my guinea pig and go through torture when I have crazy ideas!

The Whitney Boys

When I have photo sessions, they are usually high school seniors or families, and it seems like I am usually photographing girls, and very rarely do I get to work with little boys.  One of my oldest friends was in town with his son for the Thanksgiving holiday, and we spent a morning having a photo session.  Dean and Flint are the first father-son session I’ve ever had, and there is something so unique and wonderful about that connection and relationship.  It was an honor for me to capture theirs.

Natural Natalie

I don’t know what to say about this sweet girl.  Even if I did, I wouldn’t know where to start.  She is Emma’s best friend.  If you ask Reagan, though, she is also Reagan’s best friend.  She is athletic, funny, smart, caring, compassionate, loyal, and she is a hard worker (school, the farm, everything).

We took part of Natalie’s senior pictures today because she wanted to have some in the wheat before it is harvested.  We had a great time tromping through the fields, knees giving out, tripping in coyote holes, and laughing.

Natalie is the part of our family that we don’t get to have around all the time, but she comes to visit often.  We all love her!
