They deserve every last bit of their success!

Holly & Nace

We had a small contest earlier this month for a free Valentine's Day photo shoot. Based on their wonderful email, Holly and Nace won the contest! Josh and I knew we chose right within a couple minutes of walking around the waterfront with them. They are so cute together. Not only do they act like a newly engaged couple, but there is also such a deep love and bond between them that we just don't see in new couples. They have been married for 15 years and they have two beautiful children together. They still laugh together and look at each other with loving eyes. It was refreshing to photograph them!

As I was working on these photos I found myself smiling and even laughing out loud at times. Holly has such an infectious smile and they were so silly together at times. We love working with couples that enjoy each other so much. Enjoy some of our favorites below!

Well, we have some stuff in the works this Spring, but right now, we are hanging out a lot more and getting caught up on the little things before the wedding season gets going. Oh, and American Idol is on whether Josh likes it or not :)

I just thought I would post an old photo that always makes me smile. This was a bride from 2006 named Lindsey. She was a cowgirl and she married her cowboy out in Pendleton Oregon. Their reception was crammed into an Elks Lodge that said "maximum capacity 150" and they fit about 300 people in there. The whiskey was flowing like water and the dance floor was packed. My face hurt from smiling so much. I caught Lindsey in front of a fan trying to cool off and she said in her Texan accent "No, you don't want a photo of this!" And she laughed as I snapped away.

I just love this and it captured the night in a single moment. Thought I would share!

New Pricing!

We are happy, excited, and anxious to introduce our new pricing options for weddings! We have decided to introduce a new "half day" package on the lower end of the scale and a bigger, better, more exciting package on the other end. Oh, and we went back to our Coffee references for package names. Gotta love that caffeine! It has it's grips on our lives. Check em out and spread the word!


Baby Kiersten

Here are some more photos from hanging out with our niece Kiersten over Valentine's day. She is coming up on 3 months. Man she is a cutie. She smiles a ton and wiggles around like no other. We are all excited to see what a beautiful little girl she is turning out to be!

Baby Aiden

It feels great to go full circle with our clients. Stacey and Nathan were married last year in April. We photographed their engagement and wedding in 2007 and now they have a beautiful baby boy Aiden who is now only 2 weeks old. Josh swung by their house the other day and grabbed a couple great shots of the little sweet baby. Here are some of our favorites below!

Sweet Kiersten

Baby Kiersten is already growing up so fast! She is almost 3 months old! My brother and his wife were down here in Portland the last 2 days and we got to spend some much needed time with my niece Kiersten. I took a ton of photos, but here is one to hold you over until the rest are finished up in a couple days. Ain't she a sweetie!

Heidi & Justin Valentine's shoot

We held a mini contest this past week for a free Valentine's Day photo shoot. We got a great response for only having a couple days for people to apply. In the end it was way too hard to choose just one winner. We did choose one couple for the hour long photo shoot prize, but we offered free 30 minute sessions to all the couples that applied. Here is one couple that took us up on the offer: Heidi and Justin. They were wonderful to work with and the weather was amazing. It had been raining all morning and then 5 minutes after we were supposed to start the photo shoot, the sun broke though and it ended up being a perfect day for photos. We walked around the waterfront and 1st street.

Next year Josh and I have decided to do a "Free Valentine's Day Photo Shoot Extravaganza" and do a full day of free photo shoots so that we don't have to choose just one winner. Don't forget to check back next winter for details!

Greyhound Extravaganza!!

Sophie got to meet her own kind today! We went to something called an "Italian Greyhound Meet-Up" here in Portland. There is a whole group of us out there that own these silly dogs. Within a few minutes there was at least 30 Italian Greyhounds running around a small room. Sophie was nervous at first but she started playing more as time went on. It was fun. For those of you that don't know Sophie, she is the light colored one in the second photo down. She didn't have any trendy fleeces but she was rocking her purple collar.

p.s. if any of these dogs are yours - contact us and we can send the pix your way!
