Introducing Baby Muna Najjar

14 Dec

Welcome to the world little Ms. Muna Najjar! I had the pleasure, once again, to photograph the Najjar family with their newest addition. Muna is not only one of the most adorable babies ever, she has one of the cheekiest personalities! I had the most fun playing with this family. Here are the photos from the event!

On one beautiful autumn day, I spent some time with Cori, her kiddos, and her daughter’s boyfriend at the trail near Lewis and Clark College. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and the family looked beautiful in their coordinated outfits. Here are photos from the session.

Ben the Man

I had so much fun hanging out with Ben for his senior photo shoot! This kid is really awesome to hang out with. Thank goodness he’s athletic because I made him prance and jump around for some action shots. Enjoy the teaser!

Happy 1st Birthday Alton!

13 Oct

Babies galore! I had such a blast photographing baby Alton’s first birthday. Alton enjoyed a fun barbecue meal, playing with his friends, family, bubbles and dogs, and eating his very first smash cake! At first, Alton seemed unsure about his very first chocolate, but then he began signing for “MORE!” Eventually, his face is covered with chocolate cake. Here are some photos of the event.




Alma and HK: 10 years later

29 Sep

On August 24, 2013, Alma and HK celebrated their 10 year anniversary with a vow renewal in their beautiful backyard. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. It felt like a meticulously planned wedding, although apparently, according to Alma and HK, the planning only took two weeks! This couple really do their best at everything. The ceremony combined various spiritual ceremonies and their friends and loved ones were involved in the process to make this event happen. Here are photos from the event:


Jason & Naoko

3 Sep

Jason and Naoko got married on July 20, 2013 at the beautiful Sylvan Dale Ranch in Colorado.  Jason and Naoko have an amazing story.  They met in Nagasaki, Japan while Jason was teaching English there.  They fell in love, and after Jason proposed they decided to move to the US together.  

This was one of the most special weddings we’ve been to, primarily because it was between two of our best friends.  Jason and Naoko are great role models for how international couples can be truly in love and take the best of both their cultures to create a great life for themselves and everyone around them.  We look up to them so much for how to do this!  

It was such an honor to photograph their wedding, and it was so moving that at times I had to wipe away a tear before taking that next shot.  They truly are an incredible couple.  We’re lucky to know them, and we’re looking forward to many more great years ahead!
