I just adore this girl. She’s the bee’s knees. She’s the sweetest puddin pop in the pack. After our first colorful fall gallivant, we went up to the¬†Dee Wright¬†Observatory via the scenic bypass near Sisters, Oregon. It’s a short drive and totally worth the little, gorgeous detour — but, the road closes off for the [...]

I wouldn’t mind re-living this beautiful couple’s wedding again any other day. Southern Oregon wedding photographed in O’brien, Oregon at a lovely ranch.

Happy Memorial Day! Crystal is an incredibly strong woman who served our country in active duty for nine years. She’s amazing: I had a wonderful and inspiring two days to be mesmerized by her incredible stories and adventurous travels. I’m so happy she stayed an extra day so we could also enjoy a little hike [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

On my journey to Colorado from Oregon, I stopped along the way and did a little camping. Never really knowing exactly what I’m getting into (especially in regard to campgrounds — not knowing where exactly I’ll stop along the way), I was hoping there’d be a space available at the Three Island Crossing Campground. I [...]

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 [...]

Green represents envy. Oregon is green. Oregon will never grow out of trees. Therefore, one should be extremely envious of it, right? I am! I’ve enjoyed my first twelve hours here (even if my luggage was a day late in arrival). It’s beautiful here. It feels humid compared to Arizona, which is odd–humid is never [...]

I’m headed to Oregon for at least a month starting this weekend! I’ll be in southern, eastern, and northern Oregon during that time. I’m incredibly excited to be in my home state again after a six month stretch of being away. As much as I’m carried away by the breeze on a whim, headed Any, [...]

This would be my third trip to the Grand Canyon (can you blame me? It’s only an hour from where I live), but my first time with Adam. He took me to a place I’ve never been: the Bright Angel Trail where I proceeded to do a little hiking in my recently-thrifted for $4 Minnetonkas. [...]

I’m usually by myself when I’m vagabonding .. except for that time I was in Italy with Gina and the recent times I’ve been vagabonding with Adam. She took a few pictures of me there–one of which is for sale as a pretty print. This image was photographed in Flagstaff unbeknownst to me and I [...]

I shared a little bit about why it’s important for me to go on little photographic adventures here. The second purpose for doing this–taking a camera anywhere and exploring with it–is that it sharpens my skills. Blog design has become a huge part of my life these days (way more than I ever intended it [...]

One of my favorite things to do when I’m not photographing clients or working on blog designs is going on a short drive (or not a drive at all–just a walk across the driveway, sometimes) and exploring a Place with my camera (or hey, let’s be real here, my cellphone). I love findings. And treasures. [...]

Last month, I began researching a fun hike in Sedona (slightly over an hour away from where I’m currently living in Williams, AZ) using Cosmic Ray’s¬†Favorite Hikes Flagstaff & Sedona, which is pretty amazing as you can see! I just might love this hiking guide as much as I loved hiking in such a stunning [...]

This past year, I traveled from Norway to Oregon to visit my family and photograph a wedding–not realizing I’d intend to stay in the states. Then, I traveled to North Carolina for the holidays (the whole of them) and fell in like with a wonderful man. So, then we both moved to Northern Arizona–I live [...]

I’ve recently taken up the practice of taking full weekends off. It restores me–especially when I find little treasures like this on the side of a back road. I am grateful for my weekend wanderings and for the friends and loved ones that choose to share the journey with me. Between Williams, AZ and Flagstaff, [...]

Hello again! I’m returning to the states tomorrow through Sept 8, officially (possibly longer, we’ll see, or I’ll return in Oct/Nov.) to shoot this couple’s wonderful wedding! If you’re on the west coast (Seattle down to Cali), I’ll be available for a month for photoshoots & mentoring. Just shoot me an email. To make a [...]
