OREGON: there and back again.

We had an absolutely WONDERFUL vacation in Oregon! We spent the first few days touring Portland and Vancouver, Washington, then finished up with a few lovely days on the Oregon coast. We stayed in the most adorable little beach cottage and loved every minute of it! One of the days there was so much ocean mist and fog that you could barely see the ocean. It was so cool... literally... one day it didn't get above 60 degrees! Our boys were wonderful little traveling companions, despite 12 hours in the car both ways, and it was just nice to get away together. My big boy and I spent many long evenings combing the beaches for treasures. He would get so excited when he spotted a shell or rock. He even carried my tripod and used it as his own "camera" and told me "take pictures like mommy!" (That's why he is packing the tripod, not because I make him be my pack mule!) My little one didn't really love the cold ocean much. He just wanted to be snuggled and didn't really enjoy making sandcastles like his big brother did. Both boys really loved the sea lions sitting on a dock in Newport. They were so loud! I think we all really enjoyed ourselves. We laughed a lot together and made many wonderful memories.

{N} Family

I love this family! They are good friends from our old neighborhood and it was so much fun to see them again. Little miss Brooklyn was so excited for her pictures to be taken and was posing like crazy for me, she is so photogenic. Baby Eliza was a lot more alert than the last time I took her picture... she's practically all grown up! These will be my last for a few weeks, I'm taking a much needed break. We have lots of fun things planned, so stay tuned, I'll be back soon to share some of my summer fun!

little big boy

This is my baby! He just turned one last week. I can hardly believe it! He is every bit as sweet as he appears in his pictures. He has been such a perfect baby and I can guarantee that his mom, dad and big brother love him just as much as he can possibly be loved!

{C} Family

Here they are! These kids have so much personality, and where so much fun to photograph. They are such a great looking family!I think I usually tend to post a lot of color and not as much b&w. I just noticed that a lot of my favorites from this session were black and whites, so enjoy it... it's something different!
