Looking back on this session from Sept I have to laugh, as it turned out to be one of the most “unluckiest” (is that even a word?) sessions ever. The family was fantastic, the location was great, the children were amazing. However, you’d never know that during this session we had an ambulance show up that needed to go down the path where we were (what are the odds), and then the oldest kiddo was stung by a wasp about 40 minutes into the shoot! The parents took everything in stride and were so laid back (we literally had to rush out of the way on the final picture shown here). Loved working with this family though, as we seem to have parallel lives…former co-workers/teachers, 3 kids (2 girls, 1 boy, in the same order) and our children were all born within 6-ish months of each other! I think we even moved into new houses around the same time! Thanks for letting me capture your family!

So there are three littles commanding my attention day and night but I was able to squeeze in some special sessions in over the last 6 months, including my own babies. Time to dust off the good ol’ blog and share some photos!

Oh how I adored this little baby and his family! This little guy was born several months ago…he was so sweet during the entire shoot…and his big brother was such a cutie! You can tell that everyone is so in love with this little guy, lots of cuddles, smooches, and smiles in this house. Congrats on your new addition!

What a beautiful summer morning to capture this family of 4 on camera! The sun was out, the boys were playful, and we all had a great time snapping pics. :) I just love their sweet smiles and the tough boy hug in the first picture. Their mama is one of the fiercest athletes I know, as she is a fitness instructor and running coach. I loved getting to hang out with her and her family!

I had an incredible time with this family of four at a park this summer! The parents were so relaxed which made it easy to capture all of them on camera, toddler and preschooler included. Their mama is the kind of person that you just instantly want to be best friends with…laid back, funny, and genuine…not to mention beautiful! I have had the privilege of knowing her for several years now as we were in the same mom’s group after having our first kiddos (who are both now 4 years old). Our “second” kiddos are also just months apart!

We took a quick head shot for the mama, as she owns Baby Boot Camp of Beaverton! Isn’t she beautiful?!?

Another amazing family that I have had the pleasure of shooting since their little boy was tiny! I feel so blessed to call this family close friends and love that I get to spend time with their kiddo on a regular basis. Certainly a super special time for this family! Thanks Allie!

Um, seriously, how cute are these two kids?!? They laughed and messed with each other the entire time, I loved it! And mom and dad were just as much fun to work with too! Thanks Steph!

I’ve known these sweet little kids for a few years now and they are oh so cute! Their mom is a kick-butt trainer with Fit 4 Mom and is amazing! It was my first time photographing them and I enjoyed every minute of our session and capturing their love! Thank you Amy!

I adore this family and I love repeat clients! I’ve been hanging out and snapping away with this family of five a few times now, and they never fail to bring smiles, laughter, and fun to our session. The love between these siblings is immeasurable…they are so sweet and kind to one another, and are always willing to try any of my zany suggestions. Thanks Kiley!

This little boy is ridiculously full of energy and love! He means to world to us, and has a special connection with my daughters.

Dec-Jan was a whirlwind of sessions, celebrations, and house hunting, so sadly this blog was a little neglected. Now that Christmas is over, and families have had a chance to post, share, and mail pictures from sessions this last fall, I am excited to share with you some of my favorite sessions… it is always fun and rewarding to receive Christmas cards with familiar faces. I’ll be putting new sessions up as I have I time here and there to do so…

2013 fall sessions included regular clients as well as a few new ones that were a ton of fun! First up, a family of four that I have had the privilege of shooting several times over the past few years! Oh how I adore this family! They are such wonderful people and the love just spills out from them during their sessions! From the sweet snuggles, to the baby suspenders, to the cutest smiles, this session was amazing!

This was quite possibly my most favorite unplanned family session I have ever done (besides of course, taking picture of my babies!) I couldn’t wait to share these pictures, but being that they were a surprise for their mama, I had to wait several weeks before posting online! I consider these boys to be part of my family…they belong to a dear friend of mine that I have been BFFs with for 15 years. They wanted to surprise her with a going away present since she will be at the Oregon State Police Academy (aka bootcamp) for 6 months…I can’t imagine being away from my babies for that long! Anyhow, we thought it would be fun to surprise her with some hand painted picture frames full of photos of the handsome men in her life. We headed to the park to play and captured some moments of the boys just being boys! Congrats Andi, I am so proud of you!

I am excited to launch my new blogsite for my photography adventures, thank you for visiting! This blogsite has been in the “making” for about a year now. We started working on it last year before I had my 2nd baby girl and have worked on it here and there in between raising a toddler and a baby. I am thankful to have a husband that is techie…he has poured many hours into this project as well and I am so grateful to have his support!

I still consider being a mommy my #1 job which you all know, but I will be scheduling sessions this year! I plan to book during the non-rainy months which will range anywhere from April to November. I may throw in a shoot here and there between the off months, depending on how the weather is. I will be doing mini-sessions throughout the year as well–they are so much fun! Please stay tuned for those dates as I will be announcing those sessions here on my blogsite as well as on Facebook. If you have any questions, use the contact form on this site as I am much more likely to see your email here, as opposed to seeing an email through Facebook.

In the next few weeks I will be updating and adding pictures from sessions that I have done in the past few years, so my “portfolio” is kind of sparse right now…check back to see more of my work if you are considering scheduling with Posers! Thanks again for stopping by!

Hudson was the sweetest baby boy at just a week old. This was such a fun session for me, as I decided to ditch the beanbag, props, and posing, and went for a comfortable, take-it-how it is approach for photographing newborns from now on. Although I love cute babies in fancy hats and baskets, my heart has led me to pursue more lifestyle images of mamas and daddies with their precious little ones…I want the focus to be on the babies–not the props–and for the families to be comfortable in their own surroundings as they adjust to life with a new baby. As soon as we finished, I knew I was in love with the realness and authenticity of this type of session. Who doesn’t love a baby curled up in their mamas arms?
