Forest Fairytale on the Oregon Coast


Thankfully, July on the Oregon Coast doesn’t just have gorgeous light (peep those sunbeams through the trees.. I die), but it also has gorgeous weather. Which meant despite their heat index reading high, we had lovely 75 degree weather for this session.

I had some free time in my schedule, and responded (along with several other local photographers), and within a day I’d connected with these two…


Connecticut Pride Session at Platt Park | MJ + Angela


It’s June … and for those of us celebrating – Happy Pride! I knew coming into this year that I wanted a session that was incredibly romantic, soft neutral tones, and gorgeous landscape. I put out a model call in a local LGBTQIA+ social media group asking for a couple who might want to participate in my session – and I met MJ and Angela through that group…
