This chic is super sweet, funny, athletic, and has the best laugh EVER! I’ve watched this beautiful girl grow up over the past 12 years and it’s unbelievable that she’s already graduating from high school. Whether Mckenzie’s on the basketball court or softball field her drive and teamwork never goes unnoticed. She gives it all she’s got ALL the time. During her session had some wind and mist, plus it was freezing but we ended up a complete success. Thanks Kenz for shooting with me and I’m looking forward to seeing where you future takes you.

I’ve been a little MIA the last few days feeling a little under the weather. Ok, so I’m downplaying my whininess for y’all… LIKE really really…

The first thing I love when I’m not feeling my best is tea. Herbal, black, peppermint, orange/passion fruit, you name it there all yummy. Add a little lemon and honey and it’s sweet perfection.

Then there are books… awe now were talking. I could be lay in a pile of books for days. Recently I was on Periscope watching Cyrissa over at Immerse Workshops, her periscope is @immersephotography by the way, you’ll want to check her out! Oh yeah… books.. ok. Cyrissa had said there was a book we should check out so I headed over to Amazon and snagged it up quick like. It’s called, Light Is The New Black by Rebecca Campbell. Hook line and sinker Cyrissa thanks for the tip girl, awesome read!

Of course there is the dreaded thermometer. It’s like a surprise waiting to happen. What’s it going to be this time Bob? 101.1 or 102.5…. I would much rather it say 98.6 but ya nope! So tylenol and motrin it is… Chase it down with some ginger ale and it’s all good. Back to the couch, with my hot tea and my new read.

I have nothing but LOVE for this amazing family. When Sarah contacted me we connected right away and the moment we stepped foot on the beach this family had completely stolen my heart. Their style is top notch and I love her hair… Yes, I hair envy over here! When I started shooting her brothers family they told me they haven’t had their family photos taken in YEARS… yes years! I kinda giggled a little bit as I had to confess that I hadn’t either. As a photographer my family images never come off my computer, sadly to say. This year I hope to get them up on my walls once and for all. Here’s to hoping….

The Olson family traveled all the way from Canada to the Oregon Coast for their family vacation. I was so blessed to spend this gorgeous morning with them on the beach, playing and having fun. Also, hearing Leah talk was like a bird singing, her accent is incredible. Seriously their pup loved wearing this hat and how stinken cute is he and his big ole smile?
