Battersea Park in Autumn

It is my favorite time of year again! This year I have found myself in London, where autumn is as stunning as ever! Here are some shots from my stroll through the Battersea Park this week. There are more oranges and yellows than the red we get in the PNW, but it is still just…

London, England (Part 2)

My British friend, Rachel, kindly took me out on the town to show me more amazing facets of London. This day we explored Tower Hill, traced the infamous fire of 1666, and a few other neat sites! This city never stops proving itself.

London, England (Part 1)

I couldn’t move to London and not take some photos of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Westminster and some of the other main sites and sounds downtown. These came from a day when my brother and his friend came to visit and we toured around together. Such a dramatic day with the late-summer, billowy clouds and…

Battersea Flower Station

Right behind our home here in London there exists an ally-turned-flower-station that runs the whole city block. I can’t get enough of the scenery in this little pocket of paradise. Enjoy some photos from late summer.

The Chain Lakes, Idaho

Definitely one of my most favorite places in all the world – the Chain Lakes. This series of lakes is rich with wildlife and killer scenery! We took my dad and stepmom here for a weekend of camping and boating last week, and aside from the poison oak, it was one stunning trip! If you…

The Driggars

My favorite little second cousins spent some time with me at the Sandpoint, Idaho beach the other day. As cold as it was, they all plunged in with reckless abandon! Glad I had my camera to catch these sunny, summer moments of their childhood.  

Tom and Jan’s Wedding

This beautiful backyard wedding took place this summer in the mountains of North Idaho. Although simple and small, it was absolutely overflowing with deep and precious love between these two precious people. I haven’t shot many weddings, but I was blessed to be present for this one!

The Palouse

Hands down one of my most favorite drives in all the world.

Baby Hope

Sweet, little six pound baby Hope Palmer made her entrance into the world a little over a week ago! Renee and Cody, some of my dearest friends, are elated to welcome this precious lady into their home. Among many other distinctives, she has the longest fingers of any baby I have ever seen! Harper, her…

The Birdsall Family

It is always a joy to take photos with Nate, Bri and Carter! A year ago we did family photos together, and now with a baby on the way, they needed some new ones that included her adorable bump! We are so excited to meet their sweet little girl this fall!

The Reed Kiddos

Grandma Raylene is one of my mother in-law’s closest friends and she is downright obsessed with her four, beautiful grandkiddos! Can you blame her? She did such a good job getting them all dressed up in nautical themes for our photoshoot in downtown CDA a few weeks ago. Such a precious little family with a…

The Benoit Family

The Benoits have recently become some very precious friends to my husband and I. They  had all their family in town for a lake weekend in Harrison, Idaho, where we shot some pictures of their whole clan. I especially love the grandparents! This was certainly a family of big personalities and lots of laughter!
