E family. 5 year old A and 3 year old Y | Medford Oregon Family Portrait Photographer

I had a great time photographing this family for their mini session over the weekend. It was definitely a bit tricky to work around the high noon blarring light, but in the end we found some great spots and ended up with some great portraits. Mom was absolutely gorgeous, and the kids were just as stunning. A and Y were so adorable and sweet to watch together. I can honestly say that I have never seen boy/girl siblings this young, get along so well. They really, really love each other so much. A takes on the roll of the protective and proud big brother, and Y just adores him so much in return. Just precious. Thanks for sweating it out with me E family, I hope you enjoy your preview!

P Family part 2 | Southern Oregon Family Photographer

I photographed this family a while back, and as we got about 30 minutes into the session the baby girls both fell asleep! So we had to reschedule the second half of their session in hopes of getting the little ladies in the shots with awake, happy faces. I am thrilled to say, we were successful this time around! It doesnt seem like it has been that long, but all 3 of their girls seem like they have changed and grown so much. This is the best part about photographing familes as they grow; seeing everyone develop, change, and become little people with sweet personalities all their own. There were so many great shots this time around, I cant wait to show you guys the full gallery. But to hold you over for the time being, enjoy your preview! (and ps…tell Madi Thanks for being my little assistant!)



2 year old L was the winner of our recent cutest child contest, and he definitely was a cutie! Don’t be fooled by his gorgeous features (tons of very blonde hair and stunning blue eyes)… this one was certainly “all boy”. Handsome. Smart. Lover of baseball. And airplanes. And……are you ready for this….completely potty trained! Yeah, I am so jealous! I had a great time chasing him (literally) around and capturing some of those sweet, natural, 2-year-old-boy moments. I will be working on his full gallery this week, but for the meantime…enjoy your preview Mom & Dad 🙂


I decided to schedule a day in August to offer multiple mini-sessions. Mini sessions last about 30 minutes, and are a very affordable option for clients who are looking to just get a few updated portraits of the family or kids. They are also a great option for Mom’s who want a few great maternity portraits, or couples looking to get a few great shots together. *I dont recommend this option for babies under 6 months old who are unable to sit well independently, because this will be done at an outdoor location, with limited props.* We eliminate outfit changes, and location changes, and instead focus entirely on what we love the most, those gorgeous faces!

S & S Maternity Session | Medford OR Maternity Photographer

I had a great session with this couple yesterday. The Mom-to-be is 22 weeks pregnant with their first child, a little boy, and they are ecstatic to be welcoming the little guy into the world in just a few short months. These two were a photographer’s dream clients, in that they were truly willing to do anything in the name of great portraits. We started the session out indoors for some sleek, sexy boudoir style photos (which they have chosen to keep private) and then headed outdoors to finish up with some fun, rustic style portraits. This is my second time photographing them this year, and I am over the moon excited to photograph them again for a third trimester maternity session, for the birth of their son in November, and for his newborn portraits! I feel very priveldged to have been chosen to walk beside them and document this special time in their lives. Enjoy your preview Mom & Dad (to-be)! 🙂
