Hamilton | Farnes Family | Salem Family Photography

Last year I got to photograph Amy’s daughter’s senior photos, so I was thrilled when she contacted me this year for family photos.
This time we included Amy’s Fiancé, his daughter AND his brother’s family!
Extended family sessions are always a blast – there’s nothing like having your aunts, uncles & cousins all trying to make you laugh for photos 🙂

Even though it was an fairly hot early-June day in Salem, the shade from the tree cover and the breeze from the nearby creek kept us nice and comfortable during their session.

Will you be getting together with family this summer and want to do an extended-family session? Shoot me an email, I’d love to do one with you!


Patricia, James and Family! | Washington Family Photography

Patricia & James are getting married this fall and decided to make their engagement session a family affair! After being rained out a few times we finally lucked out with an absolutely beautiful sunny day for their family/engagement session.

Whenever possible I like getting to do photo sessions at locations that are special to my clients. James frequently drives by Louis Rasmussen Day Park for work and loves the area, so it was a
natural choice for their photo session.

Not long after we settled on a fun beach location we were photo bombed by a beautiful huge sternwheeler coming in to dock – which made for a fun backdrop.

Patricia & James; I had a blast with you guys! Looking forward to hanging out with the whole family again at the wedding!


Donahue Family | Salem Family Photography

I had SO much fun getting to hang out with the Donahue Family! My husband went to highschool with these two, so we hung out quite a bit back in the day, but I hadn’t had a chance to meet their kiddos yet and boy was I missing out! Have you ever seen such sweet and adorable kids?
The twins are celebrating their 3rd birthday and the newest member of the family is already 6 months old, so it was time to get photos as a family of 5!
We spent some time exploring the kid’s great-grandparent’s farm and even got in some
teddybear-tossing and dandelion-blowing – so you know it was a successful photo session!
