The Coggins Girls

Eight years ago I photographed 3 cute little girls in a tulip field. Being a photographer is such a joy that I get to follow familes.. Here are the girls this past summer..

Sweet Cala

This is a special image to me. She is a sweet little girl named Cala. I have photographed her family for 5 years now. She has a big brother named Ian and had an older sister that died of cancer at age 3, before she was even born. Her name was Lillian and I never had the opportunity to photograph her as she had passed before I met this amazing family. Cala was named because of her sister, Lillian, or Lily. I knew Cala was coming to the studio on this day, so I sent my employee to go buy a Lily. I placed this in the ivy so that it looked like it was planted there. I felt like representing her sister was important. Much Love to both girls...

mu little dolly

My sweet baby girl. I feel like she is a little doll and so I thought it would be fun to photograph her with some meaningful dolls. The doll on the left (the old one) was my Grandma's and the cabbage patch doll on the right was mine when I was a little girl, his name is conrad. Love my little Rosalyn..

Sweet baby Erik

I love photographing newborns, it is such a special time, the changing of lives, and the new beginnings and the love of a new one. John and Ahnyah are a couple that I photographed a few years back at their wedding, now with their little one, it is so fun to see how families grow and change....

a beautiful weeekend at the Lavender fields

What an unbelievable weekend! I photographed at the lavender fields this weekend and the most amazing part was that every photograph could be an oil painting. The light was sunny but provided beautiful back light romantic feel. This is one of my favorite images....

Beaverton Police K-9 unit

So yesterday 5 police officers came to the studio to be photographed with their dogs, he told me it would be tough because some of the dogs didn't get along and that it might be hard to pose everyone. In a matter of about 10 minutes, I had posed and taken the shots needed. He said "really we are done?"--surprised that it was all done so fast. Well it was a good thing because about a minute after that, they got a call and all had to go because there was a bad guy on the run... Ah but the funniest part was that my little studio was surrounded by 5 cop cars, people must have thought "what the heck is going on?" A little humor for the day!
