Salem Studio Photographer | Ruby

About a year ago, I photographed the wedding of Cameron and Kristin (their wedding post is HERE, if you’d like to see it) in Portland, Oregon. Technically, it was a year ago, yesterday! Since then, they’ve added little Miss Ruby to their family. She is, as you can see, ridiculously adorable. Their love for this little baby is so heartwarming and also super adorable. Side note: If our youngest had been a girl, his ┬áname would have been Ruby. Also, she was born on my oldest son’s birthday!
So, yeah, I think she’s pretty awesome.

Recently, they came down to my studio on Salem, Oregon, to have a little session with Ruby (2.5 months old). Our session went a little like this: Ruby smiled at me, then she spit up, then she screamed at me. Then, she stared into her dad’s eyes with amazement, looked at my camera with curiosity, got a free meal from mom, and then passed out. The end.

Now, I dare you to look at this baby and not want to gobble her up! She looks almost as tasty as a meatball sub!

Salem Oregon Photographer | glitter + lace + tattoos

glitter + lace + tattoos = a beautiful mess

You may remember the gold glitter shoot I did last year (if not, click HERE to see it). Well, I loved it so much that I decided to do a similar shoot, in an effort to create some wall art for the office of my new studio. I still have little bits of glitter throughout my house from both of these sparkly sessions. It’s a little messy (okay, it’s a lot messy), but so worth it because the results are fabulous!

I still haven’t had a print made for my office because I can’t decide which one to use!

Salem Portrait Studio | little dude

I snapped a few shots of baby Lucas, while his sister was having a photo shoot in my studio. I actually photographed this little guy’s birth, so it is always awesome to see how much he’s grown each time I get the chance.
