Blog

Welcome to the world, Reese!

Tap, tap, tap. Is this thing on? It's been a wonderful and exciting last few months around here, and I have SO many blog posts I can't wait to share. But a quick note to hold you off until those start rolling... 

I took a lovely 3 month maternity leave from EFP after the birth of our first child, Reese. She is the sweetest little nugget and we couldn't be more in love. Life is so good. 

I'll be hopping back into photography full time now and look forward to hearing all the new weddings in the works as we hit engagement season, meeting new families for lifestyle sessions, and planning a productive 2018.

Priya & Arpan's Indian Haldi Ceremony

Priya and Arpan were living in NYC when they got engaged and both have family in India, but decided to split the difference and have a destination wedding in dreamy Obidos, Portugal. This three day Bollywood extravaganza was filled to the brim with love, traditions, color, dancing, and food (so much incredible food). 

Arpan hired me to take the photos during his traditional haldi (turmeric) ceremony. This is an event where the family covers the groom in a yellow turmeric paste to make him "glowing and beautiful" for his wedding ceremony. While Priya and Arpan had a pair of photographers for other ceremonies and events throughout the 3-day wedding, I couldn't have felt more honored to have this privilege to photograph this one because I knew we'd be blending joyful, playful moments with solemn religious moments as well. 

I mean, look at these incredible colors!

Taylor Family {Lifestyle}

I am so honored to introduce the Taylor Family. Their family is being highlighted in Cedar Mill Living, a community publication for the residents of our local neighborhood (more on the magazine, soon!!).

Steady rain threatened our photoshoot, but a quick peek at the doppler radar showed we had a break in the storm later that afternoon, so these guys were willing and flexible to shift plans! Above all else, they were so warm, fun to hang out with, and kind as can be.

Thanks for everything, Taylor clan, and I can't wait to see your published feature in CML!

American Ninja Warrior: Vu

Vu from Fit with Ninja Vu is about to head to LA to compete at NBC American Ninja Warrior next week. In preparation for his big debut, a local magazine wanted to share his story and asked us to capture a handful of parkour shots. An hour at the parkour gym playing around and I had a freaking ball.

Good luck next week, Vu! We're all cheering for you!

Ruthruff {Maternity}

I remember years ago, dreaming with Kenzie about the day this would finally come. Pregnancy is a miracle in and of itself and it gives me warm fuzzies having been able to capture these moments for these two (well, three!).

Snow and laughter and wonderful, heavenly baby bumps. Boy do I love maternity sessions. Especially this one.
