So this is Ashley, about to enter her senior year. She’s close to her family and enjoys time with friends. She a writer, and loves nature. She loves the Lord. Our time together was spent roaming in the beauty that surrounds us. The world is hers … and she will do amazing things.

Melia … Class of 2017

She’s sweet. She’s strong. She’s kind.  She’s confident. She’s a beautiful girl, on the inside as well as the out. And I couldn’t be more pleased to have Melia as my class of 2017 Grants Pass High School senior rep.

It was so much fun to hang out with her for an afternoon and evening, through hair and makeup, a stroll through downtown, and then onto our beautiful evening venue. We even squeezed in the last few moments of light as we came back into town with a stop in Murphy …

Stunning hair and makeup by Whitney Tuttle of Peerless Beauty Lounge. And amazing venue that I was so excited to go back to … the Summer house.

Shad + Sarah … husband and wife

I was beyond thrilled to have been given the opportunity to travel and document Shad and Sarah’s wedding.  On her parents country property in northern Oregon, Shad and Sarah said “I do” surrounded by family. It was simple, yet ever so elegant, and totally them. Their love was tangible.

And to top it off Sarah’s parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary the same day!  It was an honor to be part of their family’s celebrations …

Tim and Shallamay … married

On a beautiful summer’s evening, surrounded by family and friends … Tim and Shallamay said “I do.” It was ever so sweet, intimate and completely them. Every detail captured their personalities and their story. From cars to converse, even their beloved pup made an appearance! I have loved getting to know them and now consider myself blessed to call them friends. Congratulations …

Cade … senior year

So … what did I love about Cade’s senior session? Well, it was crazy, unique and way too much fun! And it was just one more reminder as to why I love senior sessions …  documenting individual personalities and passions.

With his dog in tow, we headed out to Cade’s favorite place … the Illinois River.  Store Gulch to be exact. It was close to sunset. Beautiful, peaceful, a place to be perfectly content in nature. And the ideal spot to do what he loves, rock climb!

Thankful for the adventure …

maddie … class of 2017

All the way from the Portland area and I got to do her senior portraits … what an honor! I LOVED hanging out with Maddie and family while we shot in and around Grants Pass. Simply a beautiful girl … inside and out.
