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!
I adore the Ritter Family. They have been a large part of my life since kindergarten after meeting their oldest daughter and my best friend The Natural Ginger. They have a breathtaking piece of land nestled in the Cascades and a thriving business at Ritter Farms specializing in weddings and events.
When they get a chance to be in the same place at the same time, we’ve managed to capture a few photos. We had the opportunity when the extended family had a photo session, so we had to take full advantage of the opportunity to get some new family portraits.
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.
Thanks to Katelyn and her Mom & Dad, we spent a crisp fall evening-luckily free of rain- wandering their beautiful property just outside of town.
There was endless gorgeous greenery, a pond or two, mud, cows and a couple tractors. Katelyn is a sweet and super silly kind of gal, so we kept it light until we actually had NO daylight. Time flies when you’re having fun!
Wishing Katelyn a successful Senior year and a glowing future ahead!
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.
I have been very lucky to have met some really amazing people by way of photography.
I met the two wonderful people below a few years ago through a mutual friend’s referral. I was honored to photograph their wedding and later take photos of their new baby. Baby C has been growing and is turning two. We spent a beautiful fall morning playing at Priest Point Park. After some warming up, I had a chance to really capture the beautiful smile of this bright and beaming little girl.
