The many expressions of Caleb - 3 months

Here is a sweet boy that I have the privilege of watching grow.  His parents purchased one of my 1st year Baby Plans.  I love seeing all the changes in both personality and looks when these little people come back to see me every few months.  Caleb is so laid back and normally smiles a lot, but on the day of this session, he decided to provide us with many OTHER expressions.  lol  Take a peak at the video and you'll see what I mean.  This set cracks me up!  :-)

The Schmidlin Family

This family has a great sense of humor!  I really enjoyed this session.  You can click on the image or the link to view the preview video!  :-)

The Hall family - the beauty of adoption

There is something incredibly special about a family who opens their home to a new family member through adoption.  The Hall family is a wonderful group who loves each other and their new baby brother very much.  We laughed a lot and had a great time getting their story on camera.  Hope you enjoy the preview video.  :-)  Please choose to watch in HD 1080p by clicking on the number on the bottom right of the video viewing box on youtube.

What do you see when you look at this image?

I was driving home from a family session earlier this month and just had to stop my car on the side of the freeway to get this shot.  It's been said that I have a great imagination.  I must say that it is true and that it makes reading and art so much more than just words on a page or a pretty picture.  This image speaks volumes to me, but I'm interested to see what it says to you before I share my thoughts.  What do you see when you look at this image?

Crystal & Brad - video preview

What an incredible day!  Crystal & Brad were married at the beautiful Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm near Woodburn, OR.  It had been pouring down rain and was supposed to continue raining, but about 20 mins before we headed out to do the pre-ceremony photos, the rain let up and by the time the ceremony started, we had sunshine!  This was a very fun group with amazing energy!  We had a lot of fun!  Thanks to everyone who played a part and a special thank you to Heidi Scarbrough for being a wonderful wedding planner!  Here's a video to give you a little idea of what we saw: Please remember to watch the video in HD 1080p.
