Oliver's Ice Cream Social (4th birthday party)

It's hard to believe that the one that made me a mommy just turned 4! 

We are beyond lucky and counting our stars that we have so many great people to share in our lives and celebrate with us. I regret that I didn't get photos of every lovely person that attended, but here are some of the ones that I did get! <3 For his actual birthday we took him out to Great Wolf Lodge, as we are trying to live in a way that values our experiences over items. (Although some items hold great value and give us joy, which I believe is an experience itself). 

Beach House Trip for 30th Birthday!

Growing up my husband often got to stay with his cousins at their beach cabin in Rockaway Beach. For my 30th birthday he finally got to share those wonderful memories with me and his children, and make new ones! Sightseeing, hiking, playing board games, snuggling to the sounds of the pouring rain, watching movies, so many of my favorite things crammed into one weekend. I had always dreaded 30, but thanks to my family I'm sure it'll be an amazing year. 

Baby Henry

Some of my favorites from this sweet newborn shoot! Henry is so adorable, and he was so content and sweet during the whole session. Congratulations Noelle and Jacob! <3 

Novella & Evan - Wedding

I had the pleasure of capturing the special day for these two amazing people. She is a winemaker and he is a chef, what a perfect combo! I loved listening to the stories from their loved ones, seeing them smile and glow at one another, and watching them enjoy the company of their friends and family many of which came up from California and elsewhere! 

Congratulations to you guys, yet another amazing journey for you to embark upon! 

Baby Elijah

This little guy is just so sweet and was full of the cutest smiles! <3 Congratulations to Amanda and Rich, he is absolutely perfect! 


Camping at Fort Stevens 2016

Every year our family goes on a camping trip to Fort Stevens. And when I say family, I don't just mean Oliver, Robert, and I. I mean my husband's, maternal grandmother's whole side of the family (just about all of them at least). An amazing bunch of cousins, aunts, and uncles. This is the 47th year that the family has done this trip! And now that we all have little ones, we really see how important this trip really is! We couldn't have done it without our awesome cousins Shannon and Juliann taking the reigns and organizing the trip for our families. 


Juniper Ann

This little darling gave me a run for my money. ;) But she is so adorably sweet in every way! 
I am so happy for you Brooke and Shane, you guys are already amazing parents!

Amanda & Rich Maternity

These two beautiful souls are completely overjoyed and eager to meet the baby that they prayed for.
Getting to photograph them was so much fun, they were full of love, laughter, and excitement. I know that they will share their wealth of love with their little bundle of joy. 



Brooke & Shane Maternity

These two have been good friends of ours for long time. The love between them is so apparent whenever you're with them, and I know they'll share that love and more with their baby girl. We are overjoyed that they are on the path to becoming parents and can't wait to meet her! 

Baby Landon

I got the pleasure of photographing baby Landon at barely a week old. His parents are humble, amazing people who prayed and worked so hard for Landon to come into this world. He is lucky to have such wonderful people to guide him through his journey of life, and they are such lucky parents to get to learn from him and love him unconditionally.
