My Muse!

Sometimes you meet people who simply inspire you.  Inspire you to try, to improve, to just do.  Justine does this for me.  She is a great friend, my #1 cheerleader, my go-to person for different ideas I have about my business and above all, my muse.  🙂  Aside from being obviously gorgeous, she’s also willing try anything- especially when it comes to my photography visions.  Like I said, she is a GREAT friend!   

This past Sunday Justine and I drove out to Harrisburg for a concept shoot with the ultra-fabulous, Kacy Jo!  I met Kacy this past summer and I just adore her.  She allowed us to play on her turf and although it was freezing cold, we had a great time and managed to produce some amazing shots!  Justine & Kacy- thank you for being awesome friends!  Enjoy!!

Reflection: 2008

Wow.  I cannot believe that a year has already gone by.  Where did it go?  Honestly…?  To say that this past year was busy would be a total understatement.  2008 was crazy- and I loved every minute of it!!  🙂  It has been a year of growth, discovery, purification and blessings.  I am so fortunate to have the support from family, friends and clients, to do what I love. 

As chaotic as this past year has been, I am hoping, praying and planning on doubling my workload as I push forward with my new brand, equipment, style and ambition!  2008 was good to me, but I can’t wait to see what 2009 brings!  Here is a little collection of some of my favorite images of 2008.  Enjoy!

Family Session- Mt. Pisgah

So, when my friend Shauna asked me to do her family’s pictures, the intention was to go to the snow.  Unfortunately, we have had the driest winter, thus far.  I have always wanted to do a snow session and it always seems that Mother Nature has different plans for me.  Is this a sign?  Possibly.  Will I still do a snow session if the opportunity presents itself?  Absolutely. 

Anyway,  when the day of the session finally arrived, we decided not to waste our time driving up to the mountains- what would be the point?  Instead, we opted for Mt. Pisgah.  It would seem that I have been doing a lot of sittings there lately, but it’s just so darn pretty there- no one can resist it.  🙂

To the Kief’s, thank you for asking me to do your pictures- I had a great time getting to know all of you a little better!  Happy Holidays and I hope you love your pictures!!  🙂

I think I CAN, I think I CAN!! {Giving Back!!}

So, the ever amazing Jasmine Star had a great post on her blog today- ways to get involved and give back to those less fortunate.  After checking out some of the links she included on her post, I was inspired to follow in the footsteps of Chris & Lynn, two amazing photographers out of Vancouver, BC.  So, are you ready for this?

I love to receive comments, so this is so perfect!  From the moment this post goes live until December 16th, 11:59pm, for every comment posted on my blog (to any post), the True Family will donate a canned good to Food for Lane County!  Could it be any easier?  Just post a comment and share the love!  🙂 

For fun, I will be keeping track and posting occasional updates!!

So many amazing Photographers nationwide & internationally are getting in on this!  What do you have to lose?  This is the time of year to count your blessings- I am counting mine!  Let’s come together and bless others in need!

Much Love,

Jeff, Holli, Cole & Addisyn

Family Session- University of Oregon

Two weekends ago I was asked by my friend, Sarah, to photograph her family on the U of O Campus.  Year-round the campus offers an incredible backdrop for photographers, it’s one of my favorite places to shoot in Eugene.  Although it really wanted to rain and tried to spit out a few a drops here and there, we managed to stay relatively dry and get some great shots!  Thank you so much for choosing me as your photographer- I had a great time!  I hope you love your portraits and had a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Brycen- Baby Session

When we found out that our good friend Ryan was going to be a dad, Jeff and I were thrilled for him.  He is a great guy with big heart and the patience of a saint- he also happens to be one of Cole’s favorite people in the whole world.  🙂  We instantly knew that he was going to be a great dad- and we weren’t wrong. 

I was so excited and honored when Ryan and Kendra asked me to take Brycen’s pictures.  🙂  Unfortunately, Brycen wasn’t really interested in being a model for us, but we did manage to steal some precious pictures of this handsome little guy.

Ryan & Kendra, I hope you love your pictures and I can’t wait to see all of you again!!  🙂

I <3 Old Stuff!

So, anyone who knows me knows my obsession with anything old.  Cars, barns, jeans, hats- whatever.  I feel the older the better.  The more wear and tear, the happier I am.  Is that strange?  Just call it a quirk, as I have many of those.  🙂  Anyway, for as long as I can remember I have truly been crazy abut old barns.  Every time Jeff (my hubby) and I go on a road-trip, we are always on the look-out for weathered barns.  Since Jeff and I have been together for over 12 years now, we have seen a few.  🙂  And in all these past 12 years, nothing has changed- I still “Ooh” and “Aww” like a child in a toy store.

Two weekends ago, while on a Senior Shoot, we came across this precious gem in Marcola- the Earnest Barn.

This historic barn is now quite fragile and is set to be demolished soon, which breaks my heart.  Apparently the roof is caving in and they have deemed it damaged beyond repair.  I took some additional time during the shoot to snap a few personal shots of the barn for me, I fully intend to get this one printed for my house because I just love it.  🙂 

You’ll see more of this barn when I post Brandon’s pictures next…
