Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!

Homemade Coconut Milk | In My Home

Naptime won. Yessssssss. We got outside for several walks and got all those wiggles out […]

A Summer Home | A Minimalist Approach to Decorating

I have never really considered myself a “decorator” by any means. I just really love simplicity. Simplicity and vacuum lines in my carpet. Ask my husband. He’ll tell you I’m crazy.

David, Julie & Baby Mackenzie | In-Home Newborn Session | Portland Lifestyle Photographer

I first met David and Julie last spring when they celebrated their wedding in Lake Chelan at Karma Vineyards. Ahh, it was one of my favorite weddings of 2016! I’m not sure if it was because of the trolley ride up to the vineyard to share toasts with family and friends, or their wine cellar […]
