The getting ready portion of your photographs can be the most difficult - only because often times, these rooms are small, cramped, and dark. So what steps can you take to make sure these photographs come out as some of your most cherished of your whole day?

PORTLAND OR ENGAGEMENT, PORTLAND OR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I think Callie is the only dog to remotely hold a candle to my dog in cuteness - because look at that face!

I spent the morning of my New Year's Day with this little family in their Portland studio and, ohmygosh, i...

JAY COOKE STATE PARK ENGAGEMENT, JAY COOKE STATE PARK, CARLTON MN

I had a feeling from the moment I knew they had corgis that we'd probably make an amazing fit. Evelyn and Rick and Callie and Poe (spelling to be determined, cuteness is clearly evident) all braved some i...

COLUMBUS OH WEDDING

For my first visit in Ohio, I think this set a pretty high bar. From Columbus' oldest church to the most gorgeous athletic club I've ever seen, the tones and colors of this wedding were knocked out of the park.

It's about to get all sorts of vulnerable up in here.

In honor of my exciting start into boudoir and intimate in-home couples sessions, I thought I would share a piece that I wrote almost two years ago about self-worth. It's been sitting in my blog drafts for a little o...

NEW YORK, NY ENGAGEMENT, CENTRAL PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION

When I started chatting with Andrea + Matt about their session in NYC, I knew I had to jump on board the Central Park bandwagon. It is unbelievable just how freaking gorgeous this green space within the city is, a...

No, it wasn't an accident. I left it there on purpose.

These types of images are typically declared "unfit" by the usual photographer when they're removing the bad images from your gallery. And that's not in bad taste: for some people, that just isn't their vision, and...
