Erika & Andrew’s Wedding | Oregon Wedding Photographer

This was such a fun wedding to photograph. Andrew and Erika got married on the property that Andrew grew up on. His family are farmers so it was no surprise when I found out that this bride and groom planted all of their own flowers that was in their wedding. Where a big area of dirt sat a year before, was now the prefect spot to say “I do.” You can’t get much more country than this and these two really knew how to do a country wedding right.

Scott & Kristin’s Engagement Session | Salem, Oregon Wedding Photographer

These two love birds are pretty darn cute together. I got to shoot these engagement photos last weekend and for an early February day, it couldn’t have been any better. No rain, mild temps, and just enough overcast to make these dreamy images. Thank you Scott and Kristin for asking me to be a part of this special time in your lives! I can’t wait to capture your special day later this summer.

Robbie’s Valentine’s Day Session

The 30 minutes that I spent with little Robbie and his loving parents was enough time to make me fall head over heels for him. As soon as I saw those baby blues with the red bow tie, I was done. This little guy is obviously not old enough to talk, walk or really do much but sit there and look adorable, but he sure did make an impression on me. Not just because he may be the world’s biggest flirt, but because he is a fighter and a true inspiration. The bond that he shares with his mom and dad was really an honor an photograph. Take a look at the handsome little guy yourself…

A look back at 2015

I know I say this every year, but seriously, 2015 was full of beautiful moments and was quite possibly the best yet as far as photography goes. It was a year of growth, challenges, risks, failures, accomplishments, and my personal favorite, wonderful people. Old, young, and everything in between. Three years ago I thought about giving up this dream of creating photos. My confidence was shattered to say the least. The key to overcoming this has been: 1. NEVER comparing myself to photographers that make a SERIOUS living at this work. That only breeds jealously and envy which are 2 things that will get me no where. 2. Focusing on what I am good at. 3. Trying new things, even when I’m scared sh*tless about failing. Here is a look back at my 2015 year. There were so many of you that I couldn’t get all of the wonderful people I photographed but please know that the gratiude I feel for each of you is emense. Thank you for investing in my work and I am so excited to see what 2016 will bring.

Mini Sessions at Perryhill Farms | Yellow Arrow Photography

This last week I did my first Christmas mini sessions, ever… and it was AMAZING! I rented a wedding venue called Perryhill Farms, located just outside of Dallas. It was the perfect place for this event and I couldn’t be happier about how everything turned out. I wasn’t sure if I could get enough people to sign up. There’s always those thoughts, “What if no one signs up?” or “What if they sign up but don’t show up?” That wasn’t the case. I had 15 groups and everyone came out looking fabulous, and looking forward to being photographed by me. I was so humbled and I am so grateful for this past weekend. My soul is happy for the opportuntiies I got with each family to help capture memories for each of them. The investment of trust that was given to me by each family means the world to me!! Here are some of those memories…
