45 year anniversary session

I’ve known this amazing couple since I was just a kid.  And now they are serving as full time missionaries in the beautiful country of Costa Rica.  We recently got to visit them at their home, and when they asked me to take some anniversary photos for their 45’th wedding anniversary, it was a no brainer!  There truly couldn’t be a better example of a beautiful marriage than these 2.  They still laugh and play, and love hard.  Also bonus points that we got to be in Costa Rica for this session, because hello gorgeous!  What a joy and delight. 


Fruit Bath Toddler Session in our Brookings Oregon Studio

This little one adores fruit the way most kids adore cake (though I suspect she likes cake too!) So it seemed only fitting that we create a whole bath full of her favorite fruit, some cute little flowers, and some sunshine and plop this adorable baby right in there!  She was 100% down for this fun.  I’m not sure that she will ever be interested in bathing sans fruit again.  We may have spoiled her for life with the princess treatment.  She definitely felt the need to clean each piece of fruit thoroughly before enjoying her strawberries, and overall had


Mill Beach Family Session

I had such a blast with this super fun family. They were visiting the coast from beautiful Colorado. And even cooler they were on their way to becoming full time missionaries in Quepos, Coasta Rica. Since this visit they have moved their whole family there full time. They are working with Foursquare International, and also partnering with Seeds of Hope bringing hope and the Good news to Coasta Rica. I was so happy to be able to capture this amazing family before they left for the mission field. Their love and laughter was infectious!


Brookings Oregon Beach Engagement Session

These 2 cuties traveled to Brookings all the way from their home state of Utah. We had an absolutely gorgeous evening with the most perfect sunset. It was the perfect way to celebrate their engagement and their love together. It’s easy to tell when a couple is madly in love, and Bradyn and Gentry are definitely in LOVE. These 2 made my job so simple. It’s a joy to capture the true emotion between people. I feel so honored when I’m invited in to a couples story and especially when they have so much love to share. It’s truly beautiful.



“I’m a pretty simple gal, I love Jesus, my handsome hubby and my 4 not so tiny kiddos teenagers. I love the beach and feeling the sun on my shoulders and the wind in my hair. I love wild color, and crazy love. I love coffee and bacon and tacos. Tending my garden and chickens feed my soul. If you will let me in, I promise to capture a little part of your one wild and beautiful life, and all the things that make YOU happy.”
