Van Loon Family | Salem Family Photography

I’ve been really enjoying getting to photograph toddlers lately, so when the Van Loons scheduled their session and told me they had two runners and a sitter I was thrilled! 🙂
Letting kids loose in a park and chasing them with a camera is a blast – and, added bonus, a great work out!

Here’s just a few of my favorites from this summer family session.


Katie & Todd Got Married! | Oregon Wedding Photography

I’ve been looking forward to Katie & Todd’s wedding for a really long time! I even remember the moment I met them at the Albany Bridal Show in January 2017. They stood in my booth and told me that they had met playing softball, they wanted to have their engagement photos taken at Mariner’s Stadium, and they were going to have a baseball themed wedding. Their love for each other was so apparent, and they obviously had so much fun together that I knew it was going to be an incredible wedding and I wanted to be a part of it!

I patiently waited a year and a half for their wedding day to roll around (Though, probably
more patiently than them I’m sure!) and it finally did. Outdoor May weddings are always a
gamble in Oregon, but Katie and Todd lucked out with some great weather – perfect temperature and no rain!

There is so much I could say about these two, their family & friends and their amazing wedding day.
But I’m pretty sure I’d communicate that better through photos – so here’s the story of Katie & Todd’s wedding day:

Katie & Todd, Thank you so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer!
I had such a great time getting to know you two and getting to photograph your wedding!
Can’t wait to see where life takes you. 🙂

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!
