three things to love about rachael…April 14, 2010

1. she went from a teenager to a mother in 9 months, even if she hadn’t planned on it.
2. she is a gifted artist that has been altering and creating since I can remember.
3. she has the most beautiful, talented and wise middle sister in the entire world.





We went for a walk on mom’s farm during a break in the rain with no intention of shooting a maternity session, but when the sun came from behind the clouds, it seemed only proper to make some photographs of her belly even if it was for 5 minutes.

I can hardy wait to meet my nephew and see my little sister as a mom.

peace.

three reasons I love oregon…April 11, 2010

1. the green. there is a color green in Oregon that is unlike any other that I have seen. It feels like home to me.
2. the sky. so big, so blue, so fresh.
3. the hills. sometimes covered in snow, always covered in trees.

as expected in Oregon in the spring it rained and snowed most days but on the very last day the sun was out and the sky’s were amazing. We instantly jumped up and went for a walk through the “enchanted forrest” and it was truly enchanted. From the sounds of kash and leah singing as explored, to the wildflowers that seemed to bloom as we walked. It was the perfect way to end another perfect week in Oregon.

Happy trails to you.

peace.

three reasons i love easter…April 11, 2010

1. easter dresses… Leah, chose hers with my mom, notice the patten leather boots… that’s my girl!
2. easter egg hunts. we do things a bit differently the easter bunny leaves clues from place to place. little poetic rhymes that leave you guessing, wandering and eventually leads you to some candy, eggs and another clue. It is the BEST!!
3. sugar eggs… this is something we used to do when I was a kid with my grandpa and we did it again this year. It has been a long time but we had a great time remembering how!
