The Johnson Family

Put two fun-loving brothers together with some Halloween decorations, cowboy boots, and hats, and what do you get?  A good time!  Thanks, Johnson family, for letting me be a part of it all!

Boedecker Cellars

Husband and wife winemakers, Stewart Boedecker and Athena Pappas, founded Boedecker Cellars in 2003.  According to them, "our focus is quality, our love is the elegant, food friendly Oregon Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, grown by the finest vineyards in the Willamette Valley." With unusually impeccable timing, I stopped by their Portland winery this past weekend on the first day of harvest.  What fun!

Happy harvest! For more information, check out


This past weekend, I did a pregnancy shoot for Lauren and Chris.  Lauren is expecting their first child in January, and they're both excited about the upcoming special delivery. Boy or girl?  It's going to be a surprise, just like back in the day!  They don't want to know ahead of time. This session was extra fun because Lauren is like a daughter to me.  She's my daughter's best friend, and I've known her since she was just a kid!

 So, Chris is English, and soccer's his game.  This baby had better be ready to play...boy OR girl!

 In case it's a girl, Lauren's got the prequsite tutu!

Best of luck to Lauren, Chris and the wee little one!
