Concannon Family – Vancouver, WA Family Photographer

Concannon Family – Vancouver, WA Family Photographer

This is the beautiful Concannon Family! They bid on and won my Silent Auction Package for Camas Christian Academy’s Annual L.I.T.E Auction last year! You can find out more about their wonderful fundraiser HERE.

Photographing this family was such a treat for me! Their children were in school at CCA with my children as well, so it was just like hanging out with friends!

I really love the style that Koreen decided on for her family images! The colors were so perfect for fall, very warm and rich.

We decided that the Washougal Dike would be the best place to capture her family memories this year. I sent Koreen some images of other sessions that she may like, and she loved the images on the Dike at sunset.

This family is so fun! I love their laughter and happiness! And I especially love their daughter’s disgusted face at the sight of her parents kissing!

I hope you enjoy the Concannon’s Family Session!

Sofia Senior Portraits – Vancouver, WA Photographer

Sofia Senior Portraits – Vancouver, Wa Photographer

Hello friends!

It’s not very often that I get asked to photograph high school seniors, but when I do it is such a treat!

Meet Sofia! I met this sweet girl through my sister-in-law, Elizabeth. You can see her gorgeous family session HERE and view her website HERE. Sofia takes lessons from Elizabeth, and her mama is one of Elizabeth’s closest friends! I was thrilled when Sofia’s mom, Amy, told me that she had a dream about me photographing her daughter’s senior portraits. 

Sofia, Amy, and I met at a little local coffee shop to discuss the session. We wanted to nail down the date, style, and location of Sofia’s senior portraits. Since Sofia was graduating from Washougal High School, we decided to keep the location local. We chose to do the session on the gorgeous Columbia River! We started at the Pedestrian Tunnel next to the Pendleton Woolen Mills, and then made our way up to the dike and then down to the water for a gorgeous sunset to end her session. 

Sofia had her hair and makeup professionally done, so she didn’t have to worry about any of that the day of her portrait session. She and her mother chose fantastic outfits that suited Sofia and also showed her personality. 

Her mother felt like there was an element missing from Sofia’s wardrobe choice. So she asked if I had anything in my studio wardrobe that might work for Sofia. I brought all the gowns that I had in Sofia’s size to our coffee meeting, and I was thrilled when they both chose the red lace gown! Sofia looks like Snow White to me in the red gown!

I hope you enjoy Sofia’s senior portrait session!

Vancouver, WA Newborn Photographer

Vancouver, WA Newborn Photographer

 

Working with newborns is such a passion for me. I love swaddling up these tiny humans in beautiful different wraps. One of the things that I believe sets me apart from the rest of the industry, is my monochromatic setups. I do appreciate the elaborate setups that other photographers do. However, for me, it’s all about the baby. I love taking the time to pay extra attention to details; tiny fingers, tiny toes, itty bitty nose and ears, the perfect lips, and the dark fringe of lashes

I like using tiny bows on baby girls. These velvet ones are just so delicate, and compliment baby’s features so well. The soft pink color enhances the baby’s gorgeous skin color and doesn’t detract from her beauty.

Using flowers on tiebacks is another favorite of mine as well. It just adds an additional feminine touch to the images. I love the silk flowers with the dainty pearl centers. Each of my tiebacks is handmade, either by myself or by a vendor that I have specifically chosen.

Bonnets are another favorite of mine to use. Each of my bonnets is hand made by Mama Knits, and often has a matching handmade wrap as well. Ashlee finds ethically sourced wool, which she hand dyes herself and then knits into these luxurious bonnets and wrap sets.

Vancouver, WA Newborn Photographer -Abigail Lyn Everly

Vancouver, WA Newborn Photographer – Abigail Lyn Everly

Meet the beautiful Abigail! I had the pleasure of photographing her newborn images in my home studio in Vancouver, WA!

Abigail is a special little lady to me. Before I was a newborn photographer, I used to nanny her older brother, Calvin, when he was just her age! Calvin is the same age as my middle son, who is now 14!

Her mama and I had a wonderful time catching up since it had been a while since we had seen each other. Abigail was the perfect little newborn model for me, too. She slept so well during all of her setups, and never made a peep!

As many of you know, I focus mainly on a monochromatic scheme for my newborn sessions as I feel it leads the focus on the baby as opposed to the props used.
My in-home photography studio is filled with a monochromatic color pallet with bonnets, wraps, and tiebacks specially created for newborn photography. I know it’s such a relief for parents to not have to think about bringing their own props to sessions!

I especially love this bed by CBC Prop Shops, I have one in pink as well!

Having props that are speically made for newborn photography is so important. A lot of places offer crochet items, claiming they are newborn sized when in reality they are for a older and larger baby. 

I hand pick each of my newborn props from the best of the best vendors. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to support my vendor friends, knowing I am getting a hih quality and ethically sourced product from them. They take as much care and pride in their prop work as I do with your precious baby for their newborn photography session.

Vancouver, WA Newborn Photographer – Atlas Levi

Vancouver, WA Newborn Photographer – Atlas Levi

 

Meet Atlas Levi! What a fun name for this little fella! I rarely have duplicate names in my Vancouver, WA photography studio, and this little guy is no exception!

I met Atlas when his mama, a local photographer, was hunting for someone to do her newborn photography session! Courtney is an amazingly talented photographer in Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR area! You can view her work on her website, Peace Mountain Photography. We met when we were both on location for family sessions in Portland, and I noticed her amazing camera bag! It was friendship at first sight!

Atlas is close to one of the chubbiest babies I have photographed yet! He was so squishy, and fit so well in my posing ring!

Atlas’s nursery is Super Mario themed, so his mama brought in a tiny Mario stuffie for us to use during his session! It is fun when parents bring in items for their babies to be photographed with that match their nursery decor.

Vancouver, WA Children’s Photographer – Stella’s First Birthday Session!

Vancouver, WA Children’s Photographer – Stella’s First Birthday Session!

Welcome to Stella’s First Birthday Session!

I’ve been photographing Stella since her mama brought her in to my Vancouver, WA studio for her newborn session. I’ve also had the pleasure of photographing her older brother, Topher, for his first year of life as well.

While I enjoy cake smash sessions when baby’s turn One, I really love when mama’s have unique ideas for their babies first birthday sessions. Stella’s mama knew she wanted pink and gold and girly! So we decided on a glitter session to celebrate her turning One! We decided on the light pink backdrop with the gold glitter falling stars, with the gold glittne ONE. I love how the glitter stars tie in with the gold glitter falling stars on the backdrop!

Stella’s mama made the onesie, tulle skirt, bow for the session! While Stella wasn’t much for keeping the bow on, we did manage to get a few before she ripped it off her head!

hello!

Uncategorized  Photography

Many of you already know I’m a photographer who posts a ton about my business, and not infrequently about my enormous and obnoxious cat.

But every now and again I like to toss up a post that tells you some things about me you probably didn’t know. And since it’s properly winter outside, this post’s theme will be entirely cold-weather related.

Ready?

I have a love-hate relationship with winter weather. I LOVE to watch the snow fall, but I really dislike being so cold! I always crave warm soup and hot tea to warm my soul.

This winter, I’m really into hot tea and reading. My favorite thing to do on a chilly morning is get a cozy quilt, some hot tea, and read my current book, Larkrise to Candleford.

And I love nothing more than watercolor painting in the evening.
Nice to meet you!

Tell me something interesting about you!
