Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

The Gray Family at Willamette Mission State Park

February 5, 2021

It’s not often that I get to shoot another photographer and her sweet family. But that’s exactly what this session was at Willamette Mission State Park! Erica’s little girls just absolutely MELTED my heart! We also had some amazing glow from the sun and the very start of some changing fall leaves. This session was amazing!

How We Met

Erica got a hold of me through social media for her family session! She is another fellow KJ photographer so we have similar styles, that light and airy natural look. For those of you who don’t know who KJ is, her name is Katelyn James and she’s one of the top wedding photographers/educators in the industry! She’s amazing and I am so blessed to have made so many friendships and connections with other photographers through her education group! I was also super excited to hear that Erica and her family only live about an hour away from me. It’s so amazing to think such great friendships and connections can be so close. One of the many things I’m so grateful to KJ for!

Erica is expecting her third little one and you can see the joy radiating in all their faces. This baby is so loved already! I could not get over how sweet and cute her little girls were together. I kept finding myself awwwing at them practically the entire time. Everything about this session at Willamette Mission State Park was simply perfect. This family, their outfits, the location and light. Perfection!
