Around the Farm

Capturing textures and details can be the best part of taking photos. I spend some time finding different lighting, color, and texture a few weeks back. It was time to take a small break from the fun family sessions that have been keeping me so busy!

Grandmother’s Pride & Joy

I’ve known my favorite family with the big red barn for many, many years. Many of those years were without a photo of everyone at the same time in the same place.

When asked by Grandma Kathy to take photos of the many kids who have called the family property home, I was happy to get the camera out and capture a moment in time for her.  It was a cold and very windy day- and everyone did their part to make it a fun and QUICK photo session.  I see why there is so much of a Grandmother’s Pride & Joy in these photos as each grandchild brings laughter and happiness to her in their own way.

Toby and His People

There is nothing that brings more warmth in my heart than a loving dog.  Toby is just that.  His parents- Tammy and Jarrod decided to have a photo session featuring their favorite goofy fur kid.  We managed to have a great time on a really beautiful fall morning out on the family farm.  Toby managed to stay out of the water and puddles and be the star of the show. Good Boy Toby.

The Sweetest 1st year

I love that over the last few years, I have had the pleasure of taking photos for families as they grow.  Stacy and Victor are no exception. I was honored to photograph their incredible wedding, and the first few weeks of them welcoming Baby C into their family.  Now, a year old, she is mobile, and bubbly, and so so so sweet. After postponing due to fog, we managed to snag a few minutes to capture their darling family in action.

What This Country Needs

I recently had the opportunity to work with Broken Trail out of Olympia, Washington. They are a mainstay in the Pacific Northwest country music scene, and asked me to do some new promotional photos for them.

Broken Trail formed in 1996 and consists of four outstanding musicians and an incredible sound engineer. They play a mix of classic country, a little rock, and some of their own original songs. These guys have been known to rock local casinos, clubs, and private events.  They have a self released album, “What This Country Needs” and several scheduled performances this summer.
