Happy Birthday David Jr! - Salem, Oregon 1st year Birthday and Cake Smash Photographer

It's hard to believe that this was my 4th time photographing the very handsome baby David Jr. I still remember just how tiny he was when I photographed him during his newborn session.

I honestly cannot put into words just how much I looked forward to photographing this young man over the last year. Every session, he had changed so much, and the same is true now that David Jr is a whole 12-months old! Mom says David Jr is already walking and totally active.

Crazy how fast they grow up, huh?

I can't wait to show you our pictures. Here's David Jr in all his 1-year-old glory!

Ring Family - Albany, Oregon Family Photographer

Welcome back!

Let me begin by saying that I had the greatest time doing the session I'm about to post. This was the first time I've worked with the Ring family and I loved every minute of it at Monteith River Park in Albany. The kiddos were so full of fun!

Clearly, their parents have done a marvelous job raising them. Hopefully I'll get to work with them all in the future again.

Without further adieu, meet the Ring family!

Evie + Mommy Tea Party in the Park - Bush Park - Salem, Oregon Photography

So we meet again, dear blog readers! The topic of discussion for today is none other than Miss Evie, a marvelous little girl from Salem. If the name or face looks familiar to you, it's because I've photographed this family before.


I was over the moon when I got a message from Sarah saying she wanted to book a session with her darling little girl. I remember when Sarah booked me to take their family session in November at Keizer Rapids Park, as well as the many times I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them before. I was happy to know that they enjoyed me as much as I enjoyed them!

“Evie can’t quit talking about you since today. It only took 3 years, but she loves you,” says Sarah. I'm so honored!

The session was to celebrate Evie’s 3rd birthday as well as capturing some beautiful mommy and me photos for Father’s Day. Evie was as beautiful and fun as ever. It is so fun watching her personality develop!

As expected, Mom did a wonderful job preparing them for our session. She picked out the most amazing outfits and helped provide props for our tea party and story in the park.

Because my last session with the McGraw's went so well, I knew it wouldn't be any different this time around. And I was right! Check it out for yourself:
