I had the pleasure of working with Miss C once again!  She is absolutely beautiful, inside and out!  I always have such a great time with her family.  They all have an awesome sense of humor and know how to have a good time!  Miss C is entering into her senior year in high school and will be a full-fledged Coug come fall 2010!  Great choice of schools, by the way 😉

Thank you so much for driving down for your session and for being up for anything!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

We had to use the old trestle in town because her uncles had done their senior photos at this location many, many, many (ha!) years ago


I just love how intense she is when she gives that serious face!


Such a gorgeous smile!


I swear, most people would’ve refused to shoot at this location, but while we were walking up to campus and saw this empty, overgrown lot behind a frat house, they were all for it!  We had to fight old beer bottles and spiders, but Miss C was awesome about it!


And one of my favorites of the session!  I loved how the color of her eyes changed with each location we shot in!


I wanted to do something a bit different with this session.  The A family was up for anything, which made me so incredibly happy!  We met in Moscow, ID for a more urban look.  They were so fun and funky, that this type of session really suited them!  Thank you so much A family!  You truly have a beautiful family (and the most adorable children!) and I had a great time at our session!  Here’s your sneak peek!


I LOVE this moment between A and Daddy!


A and B were about done with having their photos taken, so Daddy took them aside to read a quick book.  The look of sheer joy on A’s face makes me smile each time I look at this image!



I don’t typically share personal photos here on this blog, but I’ve been on vacation again and wanted to post something!  These are our portraits by Tara Staton of Sequim, WA.  She is an amazing photographer and an absolute sweetheart!  Really, if you’re ever in Western Washington, please look her up!  She’s wonderful!

There’s a MAJOR problem with all of these photos.  My issue is…I cannot decide which ones to blow up huge and hang on my walls!  At least one of these will be a 30×40 canvas. I’ll also be doing a couple 16×20 gallery mounts as well as storyboards.  I’m planning on a very large display in my living room.  In fact, I think I’ll post a sample display here so you can all see what I’ve decided on!  Also, it will give you a better idea of what a large display looks like!

I think this will be a storyboard!









I had the pleasure of meeting sweet baby K, his mom and grandmother the other day!  I had so much fun with them all!  I had them meet me up on the WSU campus so we could take advantage of the beautiful architecture before all the students returned.  Little did I know, the first place I set up to shoot was close to where both baby K’s parents AND grandparents had met for the first time!  It was really cool to photograph the result of the love shared between both couples in the spot where it all began!


I absolutely adore the moment caught here!


Don’t they look a lot alike here?


I love his coy little smirk here


I finally got away for a much needed vacation!  It was wonderful.  While away, I had the pleasure of meeting up with another photographer friend in Sequim, WA!  The incredibly talented Tara Staton and her gorgeous family met with us and we took photos of each other’s families.  It was a little crazy with two 3 year olds and a 10 month old that had missed her naps, but we still had a great time!  Tara is a fantastic photographer and I felt so honored to both capture photos of her family and to have her beautiful work gracing my walls!  Please check out her site at:

They are such a beautiful family!
