Happy Thanksgiving {Cottage Grove, Oregon Photographer}

I know it’s been way too quiet on the blog lately, but things have just been busy around here, both business-wise & personally. I have a lot to get caught up on, but I just wanted to take a minute to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a wonderful time tomorrow with family, friends or whoever you are spending the day with! And for those who are braving the crowds on Friday…good luck!;)I have yet to decide if I will venture out, but if I do, it will be at a reasonable hour.

And since I can’t post without sharing a picture, here is a collage of pictures from a recent mini-session with Paige on the University of Oregon campus. She had a good time splashing in the puddles & playing in the leaves.

And yes, the kitty she is holding did take it’s own turn splashing in the puddles!

We had fun at the Haunted Photo Booth! {Cottage Grove, Oregon Photographer}

We had a lot of fun this year at our Haunted Photo Booth, and we even got our neighbor’s three Great Danes to sit for a few pictures!

If you came through the photo booth this year and gave me your email address, the emails with your complimentary web image will be sent out today, along with a link to the gallery where you can order prints if you didn’t already order a package.

Enjoy this peek at a few of the pictures we got on Halloween, including two pictures of my own cute, little witch!:)

Aiden’s 1 year portraits {Brookings, Oregon Photographer}

It’s hard to believe that Aiden is already a year old! This was my fifth session with Aiden over the last year (plus his mom’s maternity portraits last summer), and he just keeps getting more handsome! To finish off his first year, we used the same copper tub that we used in his newborn and 5 month portraits. It’s always fun to use the same prop at different ages to see how much they have grown throughout the year.

Here are a few of my favorites from Aiden’s 1 year session, followed by a triptych of him in the copper tub at different ages.

He’s grown up! What a cute kid though. Love those blonde wispy locks.
