meet winston.

June 29, 2009

i got to meet this sweet little guy on saturday morning.  he finally decided to make his arrival almost two weeks ago.  i have had the opportunity to photograph his sister and family a few times before, and it’s so fun to get to capture a little part of their beautiful family as they grow:)  you can see their previous sessions here and here.

winston wasn’t in the mood to sleep much, but it worked out just right.  enjoy:)

bad blogger

June 6, 2009

i have neglected my blog lately.  we have been back from our vacation and my brother’s wedding for a week, and i have yet to blog any of the pictures from our time.  i have a lot to share, though and i hope that in the next few days i will get some things up here.  i had minor surgery done on my foot this morning, so i am basically stuck on my couch…that might help me get some of  this done since i can’t do much else:)

i will share a picture of my beautiful boys the morning of my brother’s wedding.  paula (my new SIL) asked me to make these little vests and ties for the boys to match my brother’s.  they turned out pretty good…i especially love the black vans that all the guys in the wedding party wore…too cute!

a couple of days before the wedding my sister jessica was playing with dylan’s hair and putting sunglasses in him.  the next morning he told eric ” aunt jessica thinks i look like edward from twiwight”.  so we did his hair like that for the wedding, and he loved it!  he thanked me for making his hair “fwuffy”.

we had four days at our family condo in tahoe before the rest of the family arrived.  we spent it hiking and soaking up the rays at the beaches.  it was so nice to get away with my three boys, and just spend time as a family. lots to share from all of that.

after the wedding on saturday early afternoon, i was able to take my brother and his new wife out to some amazing locations around the lake to photograph them.  tons to share from our afternoon together…

and two weeks ago today my friend rendy and i ventured into downtown portland with paula in her wedding dress, and take some amazing bridals.  everywhere from a park, and an old building to shooting inside anthropologie and powell’s bookstore.  she was fearless in her dress, and it made the pictures that much more fun and creative.  we ended the evening in a field out here in battle ground at sunset.  more to share from that than you can imagine.

as you can see i have so MUCH to get through so that i can put it up here for you all to see.  sooon i hope:)

please check back…
