Taylor Ann + Kaylie: Friendship Shoot

“A sweet friendship refreshes the soul.”

These two girls were so fun to shoot with. We caught a quick break in the rain and found some spring blossoms perfect for their friendship shoot.

Amanda – Class of 2017

“Beautiful minds inspire others.”

Amanda was so fun to photograph! Even though it was pouring rain and she was sick, she was energetic and lively. Her bright & kind soul shines through to all. She’s a very talented artist, and I can’t wait to see what beautiful works she will create in the future. Best of luck, Amanda!

Kirstin – Class of 2017

I’m back! After a TWO year blogging hiatus, I am back for good. I never stopped shooting, of course, but vigorous blogging while finishing my degree was quite difficult. I salute all those who are vigilant enough to blog faithfully. I admit it is a difficult task at times. The last two years were quite wonderful. I graduated from Southern Oregon University, studying history, and spent four months traveling Europe. I am back in the states and working a “big girl” job. Yay!

Kirstin Wilkes, a senior at North Valley High School, was so fun to shoot with. It rained, snowed, and was exceptionally cold. Luckily, we were able to snag a break in the rain. It was so worth the wait! Kirstin, you are a delightful and kind human being. I wish you all the luck in the world. You’re unstoppable!

South Beach

I’m back! I had a crazy September traveling from the west coast to east coast. I’m back in Oregon and just finished my 3rd week as a junior at Southern Oregon University. Life has been crazy and fast paced, but a beautiful blessing. Here’s a few of my favorite shots from last weekend spent in Nor Cal with the family.
