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 Rogers Family: A Cannon Beach Extended Family Session

June 21, 2023

The beach is one of my happy places! Photographing a beautiful family on the coast is simply heaven!! And Cannon beach is definitely one of the best locations. I’ll even just drive out there for the fun of it because it’s such an amazing place! Who doesn’t have a place like that? This gorgeous extended family session on Cannon beach was an absolute dream. They coordinated their outfits together so well. The glow of that early evening sunshine and the tall, soft beach grass made this session magical. We had so much fun running around the sand and getting into the water a little bit!

Out of State!

Madison and her sweet little family with her one year old princess reached out to me from out of state. She was coming into town and wanted to do a family session and include her parents and siblings since they were here. Of course I am always ok with adding in more family to the sessions! What a special memory for this family to have at this stage in their lives.

This session was like having half of an extended family session and half a regular family session with Madison, Ryan, and their sweet little almost one year old, Emma-Kate. She was just loving Cannon beach! She loved getting into the water and just wanted to run around and play. Emma-Kate was just the sweetest and most beautiful little girl! You could really see how loved she is by her whole family! I’m obsessed with all the super sweet cuddles she got during the whole session! I hope to see this adorable family again soon and be able to watch their family grow! One of my absolute favorite things is to see families over and over again and document such precious memories they will cherish for years to come!
