Oregon is amazing, so is this girl.
High desert. High noon. High hopes. Bend / Tumalo, Oregon
Sweet little mini senior session in the sunny snow. Senior portraits photographed in Bend, Oregon.
This family is precious to me. These are the children of Dawn & Thom in my post earlier this week. So much goodness. What a beautiful day in Orange County at the end of November! I’ll be back soon. This family is a delight. Dawn makes a cameo in this post and so does their [...]
I had the privilege of not only photographing these two love birds when I was in Orange County this month, but I also spent a considerable couple of days in their home and in their daily lives. And I’m so blessed by witnessing the love & respect they have for each other and the unconditional [...]
Love these girls from this summer in Sun River, OR. Moments between.
One of two kabillion reasons I’m grateful I moved to Bend this year — aspen groves. Plenty of them. High desert air. Bright sun, an infinite expanse of blue sky. A mecca for my traveling clients. Nicole & Eli, thank you for freezing your asses off in the name of love. Did you the heaviest [...]
Levitating moment brought to you by Gina of Warm Pears. Nicole (from my recent engagement session) posted a quote on Facebook from the below creed and its entirety is keeping me breathing right now through this busy season. I pray it lends you grace. The Optimist’s Creed by Christian D. Larson Promise Yourself To be [...]
These two came to Bend for their engagement session and ended up spending the night at my place, so I photographed them on two days. I’ll share the next session soon! I hope you all had a wonderful, loving Thanksgiving Day. I spent the day traveling by plane so I could come down to Southern [...]
Happy 1-Year Wedding Anniversary! And I’ll dance with you in Vienna, I’ll be wearing a river’s disguise. The hyacinth wild on my shoulder my mouth on the dew of your thighs. And I’ll bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moss. And I’ll yield to the flood of your beauty, [...]
Lindsey & Ryan were married in late September and they enjoyed an incredibly adventurous honeymoon touring Colorado. Instead of photographing traditional engagement photos, I met them a week after their gorgeous wedding to photograph them together as newlyweds. Theirs was my third portrait session in a row photographing couples in the early morning; the dawn [...]
This is my dear friend Shannon Sewell. She’s one of a handful of people I’m able to go out of my way to see. I don’t get to see a lot of my friends on a regular basis, being such a vagabond, but I do love catching up with her. She’s an extremely talented children’s [...]
In your arms. A peek of the magic that occurred on my trip to Steamboat Springs, CO to photograph the wedding ceremony of these two. So blessed. More to come as soon as humanly possible. And I just realized the colors in this image match, perfectly, my branding. Perfect clients & fit in all ways.
This is my beautiful friend. She’s dear to my heart — a selfless woman who’s beautiful on the inside & out. She allows me into her home, makes me a part of her family, and gives me permission to love on her amazing kids, too. She’s also incredibly gifted in the photographic arts. You might [...]
These senior portraits were photographed on an organic family farm in Williams, OR on a gorgeous day in the late summertime.
I photographed Honor a couple of years ago — lucky me, her mama became one of my good friends. This was such a beautiful day. This child loves the water. Sand. Grass. Earth. An exploration-loving, independent girl. Sun River, Oregon
This girl is my favorite. She’s an amazing woman. She’s living in Italy right now. And her man is such a good man. It’s the best when that happens. Love nurtures. It inspires. It moves and circulates life and joy between two souls, and only when both are living and alive and loving. And that’s [...]
I’m getting into my car tomorrow morning to gently head east this week from Oregon to Colorado — stopping or camping in five states along the way within three days. I’m honored to and inspired by the opportunity to photograph a wedding in Steamboat Springs for a lovely, sweet couple — and the blessing of [...]
Senior Portraits in Bend, Oregon. Is there any other better place? I had so much fun with these beautiful girls (See Rachele) for two days shooting all over Bend / Sun River. Perfect. I’ve fallen so hard for Central Oregon, you have no idea. I’m also so grateful this is my second time photographing Maddie.
Two friends, two days of shooting senior portraits in a beautiful place, Sun River, OR, two times of day (evening and early morning), and two different hair-styles. Here’s one sweet girl I had so much fun photographing! She was a total natural in front of my camera. I feel like I get only the best [...]
The very first moment I beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone. ― Jane Austen, Love and Friendship Hope you all are having an inspired, adventurous, and meaningful weekend. And if those things may or cannot be, I hope you’re enjoying the last parts of summer in another way.
I’ve only lived in Bend for two weeks and already I have the opportunity to shoot a few portrait sessions here and in Sun River, OR. They don’t lie: Sun & River. Beauty surrounds and abounds. I’m so lucky to live in such a gorgeous place. I’m grateful that some clients turn into life-long friends [...]
In my last shoot, I shot a roll of 35mm film; the scanning isn’t the greatest since it came from a local lab, but I just love the look of film — especially when it captures water. Mmm. I love the little drop falling from her finger tip. Speaking of film, have you seen the [...]
There’s nowhere to be during summer quite like Oregon. There’s nothing like spending time by the river to enjoy it: warm waters, soft sand, large rocks to climb on, and a sweet, cool, dry breeze. There’s nothing like a first-time mother spending time with her baby girl by the river: swimming in the warm water, [...]
Imaged in Grants Pass, Oregon
I just booked my ticket to visit home–my original home in Grants Pass, Oregon. Whenever I come home, it doesn’t matter how much time I’m there, I feel like I never quite get to do all the things I want to. I’m really looking forward to a handful of things: A $0.25 Blue Fungus Fizz [...]
Wreckless has found a new home and this Place is more me than any other. I’m exited to invite you in to share in my life: travels, images, words, thoughts, and inspiration. This new Wreckless brand is collected, contained, and cordial. I’ve spent a lot of time sifting through my old blog posts (blogger, tumblr, [...]
I met Randi at 4:30 in the morning a few months ago when I first moved to historic Route 66 / Willams, AZ. She was a passenger in the same vehicle I was in, headed to the Grand Canyon, 50 miles away from home. We watched the sunrise at the GC together that really early, [...]
Brook is a dear old friend of mine. She’s not old: she just turned thirty. In Italy. I turned 30 in Finland last year. Today is her birthday. I could only wish for her a day spent in the dreamland that is Italy for someone so dear to me. She met North Carolinian Justin in [...]
I met Cali in North Carolina through a friend who went to photography school with my wonderful friend Alyssa, whom I met for the first time in real life when I flew out to NC for the holidays. This was, of course, before I decided to hang out in NC for over a month and [...]
Sweet, sweet Valentines of mine. Greensboro, NC | Heart Headband by Lady Like
These two got engaged yesterday. This makes me so happy. This obviously makes them infinitely happier than I am about it.
Here’s just a little peek into our fall/winter catalog for 2011. We’re feeling warm, wrapping up in these colorful skeins of yarn. This is my beautiful sister and the other is my bestie. Lady Like on Etsy
This is my friend Mackenzie & her amazing dad.
A sweet little family from Eugene, also photographers & friends, came down on a sunny yet blustery day for our mini family session. Cristie & Ed were first my clients years ago when Cristie was pregnant with Rowan (I love that name!), so to do a quick family session now was an honor! Rowan is [...]
One of my best friends, Sabrina. She inspires & encourages me.
Taylor and her sweet mama came up for a visit from Southern California; we had such a lovely time together photographing senior portraits in Southern Oregon. Grants Pass, Oregon
I’m taking 24 hours off to head to the coast with some of my best friends. Will return emails & such on Sunday. I’m absolutely enthusiastic about this girl! More to come soon …
