Meet Finn! Brand new in Sept 2011

Have I mentioned I'm behind in my blogging? Baby Finn is like, 8 weeks old now! He's practically crawling! Just kidding. He did get a Facebook album so this little cutie might be familiar :) Meet Finn; my kiddo's 2nd cousin:

Then we also updated at 5 weeks in my studio :)

The Wedding Event by ABC Oregon at The Benson Hotel 10.29.11

First of all congratulations to all of the engaged couples (or not quite engaged but dreaming) who attended last month's beautiful bridal show at The Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon. There were so many beautiful displays and a very relaxed, but elegant vibe to the show. I hope everyone was able to gather helpful information to help with their engagement journey! A special thank you to everyone who put the show together, to my fabulous booth assistant Suzannah Stanley, who I met when she became a 2011 Studio 623 Photography Bride. 

Some awesome vendors came together to make this show happen and to showcase beautiful options for unique wedding days. It's obvious that everyone in attendance is an artist, and is very skilled in what they do, just waiting for the right brides to come along to whom that style speaks to! This is such a fun process!

Not every vendor got a photo... and I apologize for that. I didn't get to spend as much time "playing" as working that day but that's a good thing!

Sweet Fall Session

Here is another session from last month, taken on Studio 623 Photography property! Have I mentioned how much I love my new home and studio? I do. Very much :) I've been loving the fall colors and splendor that our trees have to offer. It's only going to get better! This session was for old friends of ours and I got to meet their youngest daughter for the first time. She is such a sweetie. Big sister loves her very much, I could tell!

Riley - Class of 2012

I was pleased and surprised when I got an email from my my husbands Aunt and Uncle about taking their son Riley's senior photos. Surprised only because it surprises me each time someone from the "kid" generation of our family... i.e. those who were little kids 10 years ago and now they're adults :) needs senior photos taken. WHAT? He or She is a senior already? What's even funnier about it is that it seems like time is flying for me, but I remember very well what it was like to be 16-18 and how I thought it was ridiculous when adults said stuff like that. 

We did this session at a couple of private residences in Sherwood and I even got to sneak in some family photos too! Riley was a blast, had lots of good ideas and lent very cool personal touches to the shoot. I hope you have a great senior year and it was nice getting to spend some time with your family!
