Destination Wedding

My friend, and roommate in college, is getting married! Sarah and Mike chose to get married at Beaches Resort and Spa in the south Caribbean. It is a small island southeast of Florida. Not only do Katie and I get to shoot their beautiful destination wedding but we get to spend 7 days relaxing in the sun! We will be there October 4-11. Their wedding is on Friday October 10th!! I am so excited for Sarah and Mike and truly look forward to being a part of this special time. My first destination wedding!!! P.S. Jen is going too!!!!

My Favorite Subject!

When I got home from work yesterday my wonderful husband and daughter surprised me with flowers and a spa gift certificate. Just to let me know how much they appreciate me. It made me smile! Not only were the flowers beautiful but they were my favorite kind and color! It was very thoughtful! I just love taking pictures of Sierra, she is my favorite “subject” to shoot and thought some pictures of her with the flowers would be precious!

Weekend Away in Bend

We just got back from a relaxing & fun party weekend in Bend! It was Darin and Alethas birthday so to celebrate we rented one of the cabins at McMenamins. We might have been slightly annoying since we called about 10 times to have the propane tank re-filled. I think if they heard "Hi this is the Nunnery" one more time.........

The weather was PERFECT. 55 and clear blue skies! I took picutres all the way there and all the way back. If I could have only had my camera on Saturday when we went skiing at Bachelor! The view from the summit was spectacular! I posted some of my favorite pictures!

A New Beginning.........

As many as you know I have always had a passion for Photography. I hope you enjoy the pictures I post on my blog as much as I enjoy taking them. The last two terms I have been taking photography classes at PCC and working every Friday for Katie. Last week Katie offered me a part time job ,30hrs/wk, and I accepted!!! I will start my new job March 1st as Studio Manager with Katie Jervis Photography. I will continue to work part time at StevensMckissick Advertising & Design, about 20hrs week.
Katie has already booked as her second shooter for 7 weddings this summer! I can't believe where this past year has taken me. Meeting Katie (many thanks to Joanna!) has been a pure blessing on many levels. Not only am I a huge fan of her work but she has become a true friend and a joy to work for. If you know anyone who is looking for a portrait or wedding photographer you now know who to call! I can't thank my husband, family and friends enough who have been such a HUGE support during this time of transition. Here is to a new beginning...........

The Power of Photoshop!

A woman that Aaron works with asked me to see if I could edit a few of her old photographs. Here are a couple just to show what an editing program can do! I will post more later!

McClure Family Visit!

Aaron’s dear friend Sean and his family came for a visit. Sean was in the Navy with Aaron and is interviewing with Bonneville just like Aaron did last year. His wife Erin and beautiful son Ian were able to come along this trip! Ian is 8 months and a very HAPPY baby! We have enjoyed having them and will be sad to see them go. They like to hang out and eat good food just like we do! They will have to move from their home in Colorado when Sean starts his new job in June. One of the places they could move to is The Dallas. We took a long drive to look around at their possible new home. Along the way we made many stops. Once for lunch at the Full Sail Brewery and the others to take pictures. We went up Hwy I-84 and came back on the Washington side. A little longer drive but worth it. Cheers!
