Some things are just cool no questions asked. Like archery for example, or really nice people. I had the pleasure of shooting both of them at once! Here is a peek at Jacob's senior portrait session.

This season I have found that in the absence of  the plethora of weddings that came with summer my idle hands have inspired to an extreme imagination. I have decided to be braver than ever and actually try to let some of the images fly out of my mind and into reality. In short it is fun, it is hard, and you can expect more artistic photography from this lady! 
Jesta and Gabe have an awesome relationship, I don't know them very well... she is only my sister haha. They are goofy and different and cute and did I mention goofy?
Jesta goes back to school in La Grande  soon and wanted some pictures of the two of them together to help when she misses him (all together now: "awwwwwwwww!") so that is just what we did!
We headed over to Wildwood Park and took some beautiful pictures and also some funny ones, you have to stay true to who you are, right? Right! 
Here is a little peek at the session     (a hint: keep an eye on the shadows)

I love that I get to take pictures of people, really I do! That being said, every once in a while I get the chance to take a weekend off and no matter what it is I always come back so rejuvenated and excited for photo shoots. There is something about not having to take pictures that reminds me that I want to! Seeing little things that beckon me to photograph them and being able to snag great photos of the people that I love always sparks an artistic fire in me.
These are a few pictures from an amazing weekend with some people I really love that reminded me how much I love what I do! 

These two share such and obvious and amazing love for each other and a deep desire to better themselves and serve the Lord so being able to take engagement pictures of them was a joy! 
We were bathed in the beauty of a southern California beach sunset, warm ocean water, and lots of laughter.
They have such a natural way of showing affection and happen to be gorgeous so we got a lot of beautiful images, here are just a few of my favorites for you to enjoy!

Luck came my way when I got to be a part of this special day. This couple has an obvious and amazing love for each other, not to mention adorable little ones! 
Here are just a few of the moments from the day that I love, take a look!

I love it when a couple wants to get pictures together for no reason. I always think it is romantic! No need for a special occasion when you are so in love! The shoots are always fun and seem to turn out great! 
Take a look!

I happen to have a really awesome, talented, beautiful friend that I was able to hang out with and this was the outcome





Basketball is a passion of mine that I will never be able to let go of and I love it when I get the chance to photograph a game. Especially when family is playing!

What happens when you take a couch into the wood and toss in an awesome couple like Matt and Eli? 
Well you get a fun, adorable, silly, and did I mention adorable engagement shoot!

Seriously this shoot was so fun! Here are just a few images to show you why!
