Fruit | Portland Wedding + Family Photographer


I’m sure you’re all very surprised to learn that I’ve started another photography project. I did the photo-a-day project in 2020, and I’m so happy I did! However, I always go into that with the intention of flexing my creative muscles, but 98% of the time it just turns out to be a documentary of the year, haha.

So, I was talking to my friend Jenn, and was telling her I was thinking of creating monthly “homework” assignments for photography, so I could just keep trying new things and pushing myself creatively. She loved the idea and decided to join me! So, each month we will take turns choosing a theme and then photographing it! I chose the first theme for January – fruit flat lay.

It’s so cool to just start with a blank slate and just start putting things together for no other purpose than to just CREATE. I love setting this example for Lily. I did this during James’ nap, and Lily was all about joining in. She wanted to create her own flat lays too and I just couldn’t stop smiling while she did it! We took turns creating our pieces, and then I photographed them for us. She even took some photos of me working on mine. It definitely pained me a little bit to cut leaves off of my plants, but I really love what they added to the layouts!

She forced encouraged me to create a third flat lay after I said I was done, and I’m glad she did 🙂 Lily is the best little sidekick and I love seeing her create! It started to get a little weird at the end, because she decided to do a cheese/dairy flat lay, which she then poured into a bowl with water and made “soup” for the rest of the day! Anyway, here are the results!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
