McMinnville Family Photographer . . . Backyard Family Photos

 Every fall I travel to the home of this awesome family to do their family portraits.
Their property is the perfect backdrop for our sessions, even if the weather is absolutely crazy like it was this day. You'd never know that during our shoot we had rain, wind, clouds, and full sun. 

It always blows me away to see how much their boys have grown, even though they are the same ages as two of my own kids. It's always more shocking to see how someone else's kids have grown.


Salem Wedding Photographer . . . Simple Backyard Wedding.

Andy & JoyLynn got married in a beautiful and simple backyard ceremony.
Their venue was filled with adorable details, a lot of laughter, and a ton of love. 
Their whole day was laid back, happy, and really to photograph.

Although I don't have any photos, their food was amazing. 
Guests ordered custom made brick oven pizzas and they were delicious!

Thank you to my wonderful assistant, Michiko, for helping me out with this one.
