Going home again…

Attn: Portlanders.

I will be in town from March 8th-17th.

Please email me if your interrested in a photography session and details on special rates

Aloha!

So my husband and I are going to be out of town until the 22nd of September. We’ll be shooting Genelle and Buzz’ wedding in Maui! I cannot wait to be apart of this momentous occasion! So while we are in paradise, I’m going to try my hardest to work at little as possible. If I have been in contact with you the past few weeks, do not fret, I’ll be working on your weddings and shoots, but I probably won’t be answering too many emails or phone calls. So please don’t think I’m trying to ignore you, I’m just wanting to kick back and relax with my husband…

On another note, most of you know that Daniel and I are expecting our first baby at the end of November. Abigail Lauren will hopefully enter this world November 21st or 22nd so I’ll try and take some time off during November and all of December. If you interested in wanting an engagmeent or family shoot before Christmas, please email me so that we can schedule a session as soon as possible. Thanks again for all of your love and encouragement during this new chapter of our lives!

Welcome to the New Blog!

After months of procrastination, making decisions and then changing my mind, my new blog is finally done! For those of you that are waiting for pictures, they will be up soon. quite soon! But right now I must must thank some people because without them, this project would have never happened.

First and foremost, I have to thank my wonderful friend Abi because she was the one that told me to stick with my gut and even if I had paid for another blog and designed it, but it still wasn’t me, that I needed to start over. Abi: thank you for your endless encouragement, your never-ending advice and always, always answering my questions via text.

Secondly, I have to thank my brother, Ezra, who is an amazing graphic design artist and pastor. I don’t know how he does all of it, but he does. When I came to him with my branding, all I had was an idea and he transformed it. For those of you that know me, you know I am a little scatter-brained to say the least. After countless emails and the amount of patience that would impress Mother Teressa, he exceeded my expectations. Thank you for all your help and making my vision come to life!

I must also thank Andrew, my 17 year old brother-in-law. This guy is one of those modern day Reinissance men. If he tries it, he’s not only good at it, but A-maz-ing at it. So when I approached him about taking my new portfolio pictures, he was excited, but I was nervous to say the least. It’s hard as a photographer to want to be in front of the lens. You feel awkward and personally, I like making other people pretty. I had high expections and Andrew blew me away. Thank you Andrew for making me look oh so dramatic:)

And finally, I must thank all of you readers for encouraging me and your kind sweet words. There have been times that I’ve wanted to throw in the towel, but you’ve encouraged me all the way. It’s what gives me fuel to tell your story. So as this new year, has just begun, I hope that you enjoy the new blog and the new name!

And what would a post be without a picture? Here’s just a taste of my next post.
