I was happy to be able to preserve the memories of this special day for my cousin Tyra and her new hubby, Nathan! We were very lucky that the heat decided to settle down a bit and give us a beautiful day.  This Northwest girl is definitely not used to the Southern Indiana heat and humidity! We started our morning at Jagged Edge Hair Studio where the ladies were pampered with mimosas, bagels and lovely hair and make-up. Tyra wore a beautiful cream colored dress with simple details from Magic Moments in Evansville, IN. It was timeless and elegant. Her veil was made by her mom, Terri.  It had beautiful little flowers in it. 

We all braved the midday sun for portraits at the Schaeffer Barn. I may have jumped out of my skin as a rabbit ran past my feet while I was checking out the area! :-p Then it was off to the church! Tyra and Nathan were married at Redemption Christian Church in Jasper, Indiana. Family and friends gathered at Huntingburg Old Town Hall to celebrate with a delicious fajita bar from Agavas Mexican Grill, cupcakes, margaritas and dancing!

Congrats Nathan and Tyra! Thanks for allowing me to be part of your day!

It's possible that I've been bugging Trevor to propose to my sweet cousin Kari for a few years now. ;-)  So imagine my very big joy when he messaged me to see if I would photograph their engagement when I was home this summer.  We crafted a little plan to use them as guinea pigs for some new photo ideas I wanted to try (as I often do) and voila.  All the family snuck in at the end to enjoy the moment and no Lemond celebration is complete without tons of home-cooked deliciousness.  Thanks for letting me share in this moment with you guys!! I will try to wait patiently for the wedding. :-D Love you both!!

Christian and McKayla celebrated their love with a Alice in Wonderland tea party themed wedding at the Ecotrust building in Portland, OR this May. McKayla and her friends enjoyed getting ready at The Society Hotel and after the ceremony everyone enjoyed the incredible food of Elephants Deli (I seriously have to go eat their soup again sometime soon!). And the cupcakes from Toadstool Cupcakes were really like none I've ever had before. I might just have to hunt them down the next time I make a trip into Portland! Anyway, enough drooling over food. Congrats Christian and McKayla! I wish you lots and lots of happiness!

I took a little trip out to Wilsonville last weekend to meet Scott and Charissa's sweet new baby.  April has the most beautiful hair and eyes. She was wide awake for much of our time together and loved to stare right at the camera.  Congrats family! She is so sweet and so very beautiful!

Charissa and I taught together for a couple years before she and Scott were married and moved away.  So fun to catch up again and photograph this next stage of their lives.  And isn't she a beautiful mamma?

Is it bad to comment on the weather ALL the time??  Because seriously, March in the Northwest...we couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening. Can't wait to meet sweet little April very soon!

The last time I was in Jonathan and Hilary's home was on their wedding day.  Their in-home, intimate wedding was certainly a favorite.  When Hilary texted to say she was pregnant, I was thrilled for the opportunity to connect again and celebrate another intimate moment in their lives. Little Aria is beautiful, sweet and cuddly.  Congrats Jonathan and Hilary, she is just perfect! And thank you so much for trusting me to capture these precious moments. <3

Family Photos in Long Beach | Vancouver, WA Photographer http://www.sophiarose.photography/blog/2018/2/family-photos-in-long-beach-vancouver-wa-photographer Visited Long Beach, CA last week for a bilingual conference and while I was there, caught up with an old friend from college.  We rushed around, chasing daylight, and captured a few photos to remember this life stage.  And how amazing is it that I was in a tank top and totally comfortable!! What a wonderful change from the wet and dreary northwest winter.

And later that eve I was able to roam around Long Beach a bit and capture some of the city.  I got a new Lensbaby Edge 50 for Christmas and hadn't really been able to use it much aside from desperately trying to chase my children around and photograph them with this manual focus lens...tricky!  So it was super fun to take it out and use it for something a little different.

Happy to share a few images of my beautiful friend Sara and her sweet family.  I enjoyed photographing big sister's newborn photos just a few years ago so I was honored when Sara got in touch and asked me to photograph sweet baby Bo.  I love capturing those tiny details and what fun it is to see a dad playing Barbies.  The best dads play Barbies with their little girls. Congrats you guys.  Bo is absolutely precious and little B has grown into such a fun little gal.

The last time I photographed these guys all together, it was 30 degrees out.  I'm not even exaggerating.  It was a surprise Christmas gift for their mom and dad. So, the wind and 40-50 something temps were chilly but quite an improvement! I know I say it all the time, but I do love capturing families year after year.  I met Sara our first year of teaching. Going through the first year together is like experiencing walking through trauma together...it's a bit bonding, probably because no one but another teacher can even fathom what that's like. ;-)  I photographed Sara when she graduated with her Masters in Education.  And then her younger siblings.  Then it was the whole family, followed soon by Sara and Vern's engagement and wedding and not long after, Ashley's baby (still some of my favorite newborn photos).  Thanks for calling me yet again...and thanks for getting together in the Fall and not waiting till December!! Ha!

I must admit, I watch the weather with some obsession when I have Fall weddings. Fall in Portland means rain, rain, rain.  In fact, just over the river, it was pouring while we enjoyed a dry day! Stephanie and Justen were a pleasure to work with.  They were surrounded by friends and family who clearly adore them.  It was a packed house! And oh how I love bubble exits.  No fear of having my hair set on fire and they  just photograph beautifully.  If you didn't catch the little boy's face during the kiss, go look again.  Cracked me up! 

Congrats Justen and Stephanie! I'm so happy for you both and wish a happy marriage!

Family Fun in the Fall | Vancouver, WA Family Photographer http://www.sophiarose.photography/blog/2017/11/family-fun-in-the-fall-vancouver-wa-family-photographer I moved around a lot when I was little.  A lot.  Most of my memories of growing up are really fuzzy.  BUT I have one memory of Fall.  I believe it was our house at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.  Which seems odd because I feel like big trees don't make sense in a desert area, so perhaps my memory deceives me but I remember a big tree in the front yard with lots and lots of leaves falling in Autumn.  I would rake those leaves but not in a big pile for jumping.  I liked raking pathways around the yard and then running around the paths. 

Our yard here in Vancouver mostly has evergreen trees so the girls don't get to experience those pathways of leaves but these little gals had a great time playing in a small pile of leaves around the tree during our session.  Reminds me that I need to get my own girls away from the house and find some leaves for a little fall family fun!

Spent an early morning enjoying time around Portland with sweet Alice and her family. How has it been a year since she was a newborn? While thick fog settled over the river, just a few miles away, we enjoyed a chilly yet beautifully sunny morning at the park. Happy 1st birthday Alice and happy 3rd birthday Jack!  I always enjoy our visits.  And as usual, I can't narrow my choices and share too many. :-)

I had the privilege of photographing my cousin and her hubby's marriage celebration at the end of September.  It was an absolutely perfect weekend for a Fall, backyard wedding.  Beautiful weather, family, and a lot of laughter. My family's property was the most fabulous location for the event.  The caterers served the most delicious chicken I've ever eaten and when the sun went down, we danced the night away.  Kate and Seth, thanks so much for letting me capturing this day for you and for a super fun weekend!

Spent a nice evening at Lewisville Park with Kyle and his family.  Kyle enjoys playing football for Hockinson High School and spending time in the outdoors.  Of course, living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, how could you not love being outside!
