I was given the wonderful opportunity to photograph the {L} family.  Their sweet little boy just had his first birthday and wanted to capture that wonderful milestone with family pictures.  He absolutely melted my heart with his sweet smile!  They are expecting baby #2 next year.  I just adore this sweet family!!

Terry Brown - Great pictures! I loved everyone of them.


I love dogs….love, love, love them.  I could never imagine my life without them.  They are truly mans best friend and such a beautiful example of unconditional love.  I take pictures of them all the time.  In fact I always have.  I got my first camera (a Polaroid) when I was 11 years old and recently my parents gave me a box of all the pictures I took when I was a child.  I would say most of them were of my pets or at least had one of my pets in them.   I have even taught one of my dogs to “say cheese”!!  It’s adorable…..





Our family took a trip to the beach in July and I am finally getting this up on the blog.  We were in a very remote area on the Oregon coast.  We had no internet, no cell and minimal TV.  My kids were a little in shock at first, but as it turned out it was a wonderful break from the technology world.  On the second day of our trip I ended up breaking my toe.  So I didn’t get as many shots as I would have liked because let me tell you, walking on sand with a broken toe is mighty painful. 🙂  My kids flew kites, built sandcastles and learned how to skimboard.  Here are just a few of my favorites from this memorable vacation.
