.Duerksen Family.

A family very near and dear to my heart asked me this fall to take their family photos. What better place to set it in than the beautiful Green Gable Farm in Philomath. With beautiful fall colors, eccentric pumpkins and beautiful faces, it was hard to go wrong :)

Here is a little sneak peak of the fun we had.

.Leaf Family.

I was so excited when Rachel wanted me to take their family photos! Rachel and I have, quite literally, travelled the West Coast together. We graduated high school in a dinky Placerville, CA high-school in 2010, and now 5 years later, we live not even 2 miles from each other in Corvallis, OR. Needless to say, following her families progression through life (and growth!) has been a total blessing.

Rachel and Robert have a precious soul of a baby (not so baby anymore), Xander. His dazzling eyes and charming personality had me swooning the moment I saw him. Plenty of “aww”-ing happened. To top it off, they wanted to announce the new addition to their growing little family. What better way to break it to mom and dad than looking through pictures from a “Family Photoshoot” and oops! how did that picture of “we’re expecting” get in there?

Here’s a little taste of the fun we had:

.Messner Wedding Prep.

It was a year of family! My sister and I both got married this year. The blessings were abundant and never-ending.

While I got to be in this wedding and not photographing this wedding, I did manage to sneak a few shots of the preparation process (what can I say? I couldn’t resist).

.Pearson’s 2 Year.

As a photographer, I get the opportunity to be with people during some of the more life-changing experiences in life. What I didn’t realize when I first embarked on this journey was that those changes in other peoples lives would also change mine.

When I was first asked by Alex to photograph him and Shauna’s wedding, I had no idea the journey they would be taking that I would get to follow. Shortly before they got married, Alex fell extremely ill. In a testimony of courage and love, Shauna set her life aside to support him, stay by his side, love him unconditionally, and lift him back up.

Two years (almost three!) later, with a battle scar on his head and a solid rock of a wife, Alex and Shauna continue to do amazing things. I get the opportunity to capture their amazing love every so often. Here is a taste. Enjoy.

.Messner Engagement.

What an awesome blessing I was granted to be able to photograph my own sister as she journeys into a new phase of life! Chelsea and Nick have such an amazing bond and dedication to each other — I can rest assured that my sister is in good hands.

We are moments passing by each other holding on, letting go, opening and closing again.
