Carli - Salem, OR Maternity Photographer

Let's start this off with a little pitch for bycarli. Carli, my oldest sister is wildly creative, perfectly domestic, and quite pretty. Oh, and she makes amazing hand-crafted items for baby, mommy, and home. Me and Megan of Red Pearl Designs have been assisting her in starting her business, and I'm pretty excited about the amazingly cute products she's creating. You'll have to keep tabs on her blog to see her new business unveil.

When I called asking to do some test shots of Carli she agreed and It's been over a month since I took these. We met at Vitae Springs Vineyard, borrowed Megan's clothes, and had a grand ole' time. Her oldest, my nephew Isaiah who's 5 came along, was quite a pill, but we pushed through.

My Fourth Of July

Alright, time for a little slice of my life. It's crazy to think that a year ago I had recently arrived back from my schooling in Mass. I remember cause it was the day before the Fourth of July, and my life was somewhat of a whirlwind.

To make a long story extremely short, a lot has changed; bored is now busy, regrets are now past, lonely is now loved.

I cherish my family, tremendously. Perhaps that's why I love holidays so much, perhaps the amazing spread of food we put out. I love my two nephews 'Saiah & Zeeky, my dad for his strange humor and strong political views, Michael for singing words, Sally for her intense sounds affects, my mom for her presentation. Usually an element of chaos, (two more on the way).

I'm rambling, so here's a few fun photos from the day. Oh, and I shot some video for the first time with my Canon Mark II, someday I'll figure out how to edit that and put it up here!

Matt & Beth Tibbs - Salem, OR Maternity Photographer

To all who've noticed a month go by without a post, your wait is over. I've been booking so many sessions it's like a bunch of Oregonians starving for their brief glimpse at sunshine!

This is a particularly fun post for me because of how much I enjoyed this session. Matt emailed me a while back informing me that he had convinced his wife Beth to have maternity photos taken of her first pregnancy. By now they've had Lucas, despite his being two weeks overdue! Bless that women!

But getting back to the shoot. Ryan and & met them out at Vitae Springs Vineyard and spent the next two hours getting to know these two and capturing the sweet love and care they have for one another.

I shot this in the midst of one of the most chaotic weekends of my life, and it was a much needed breath of fresh air.

Meet Matt & Beth Tibbs, new fresh new parents. II'm actually doing newborn photos of Lucas, and can't wait to meet the little guy. If he's anything like his parents, he'll be a ton of fun and really easy going!

Aren't they just grand?!
