2701 miles in six days along Highway 101 on the Oregon Coast up through Washington. We stopped at Crater Lake, The Oregon Sand Dunes, Umpquoa Lighthouse, The Devil’s Punchbowl, Indian Beach, Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock, Cape Lookout Forrest, Titelow Beach, Narrows Bridge, Cape Meares Lighthouse, Pikes Market, Daniel Lakes, and indulged in the most amazing food I’ve ever had.

I’ve always felt a strong connection to the coast and now I know why….it is simply magical. One minute you are driving through the dense forrest and then you are looking at the beautiful ocean. The weather was moody and perfect, fog, drizzling rain, and pockets of sunshine. So many contrasting colors from the green moss, the red sand, black rocks, it was perfect. Here are a few of my attempts at landscape photography.

Cute Family + Grandparents + Snow + Hot Chocolate = Happy Photographer

I love photographing Jill’s sweet family because they are always up for having fun. We knew it was going to be a cold one. They decided to brave the freezing temperatures and bundled the little ones up, we shot for about 30 minutes and then Jill had the idea of going to Starbucks to warm up with some hot chocolate.

Her sweet parents joined us from Maine and I had a great time being educated about coffee from her endearing father. The relationship these grandparents have with these little ones is priceless.

Sessions don’t always go as planned.  Sometimes the weather can make for an adventure, children may not be happy but I promise you if you focus on the beautiful dynamics of your family you will always end up with pictures that speak to your heart that you can cherish for years to come.

Jenny and Brandon had me swooning from the minute I saw them.

Something so real between them you can see it in the way they look at each other.

From playing on the long board, trying to figure out how to actually light the Chinese Lantern and make it fly before it caught on fire, and braving the freezing temperatures, this photo shoot will go down as one of my favorites. Thank you guys for being up for all my crazy ideas!
