once in a lifetime we may find our one true love… this is just the case for Katie & Tony. they are both successful, independent and amazing individuals but together they truly shine. from the moment Katie contacted me we hit it off. let’s just put it this way, her name is my phone is Cute Katie!
a beach about 1.5 hours south of me named Yachats holds a special place for them and was the perfect location for their shoot. the weather was amazing but oh my… the wind was something else. as you can see though, the wind didn’t bother them any because they rocked it.
we chatted about how they met, their jobs and family, but the whole time i wasn’t really focusing on the conversation. why? because their connection was unlike anything i’ve ever seen. i was in awe of how much they complimented one another. the way Tony watched her when she was laughing and helped hold the hair out of her face was with such love and tenderness.
moments like these are why i love my job. being able to capture the moments that take our breath away… amazing!
Who doesn’t just melt when you see a 2 year old in lumberjack clothing? Seriously, check out those suspenders! He’s ridiculously cute.
But don’t let that cute attire fool you, he was not going to let me catch that smirky smile easily. This is what happens when his mother is a photographer… bonus… my second shooter. Over the last 2 years it’s been a pleasure watching him grow, capturing his special moments and having so much fun with creative shot ideas. Now he’s turning “2”!
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?
Debbie and her family all met up in Lincoln City for a little family vacay, and wanted to celebrate by having their memories captured by me. When we met up at Fogarty Creek State Park we hit it off right away. They had me laughing the whole time and weren’t afraid to get comfortable and silly. During our session of course we captured the posed everyone looking at me photos, however, we also captured the off the cuff, laughing, jumping and falling in the ocean photos. These are some of my favorites to deliver as it’s real fun and real happy family moments!
