Welcome to Our Blog.

The Blog is a place we like to share some of our recent photo sessions, talk about the amazing people we get to work with, and let you in on a little bit of our crazy lives. We are a wife and husband team, who love our job and love working together. That's a photo of us on the right we took during a snow storm in Central Park. Leave it to us to visit New York during one of the worst snow storms in 60 years! Of course it did make for a great photo. We hope you stick around to enjoy some of our work and get to know us. We promise to share some of our crazy adventures. If you feel like it be sure to show us some love by leaving us Blog comments, they always make us feel good. Thank you for visiting! ~Brandy & Justin

Birth Photographer ~ Salem Oregon

I am still on a high from photographing this birth. I never thought I would say this but I really can't wait to photograph another birth! So, if anyone is interested, we are available for birth photography. Maybe I should state that a little differently and say I am availble for birth photography, this is a time when Justin will not be assisting me :-) Onto Lindsey and Baby Olive.

I have been wanting to share these photos with everyone but wanted to wait until Lindsey saw them first. This weekend, she gave me permission to share more photos from the birth of her newest little one. It's still hard to put into words how amazing the experience was and what an honor it was to be there for these precious moments. I had been in contact with Lindsey all day by text and with Sean by phone working to plan the exact time I should arrive. I arrived just a few minutes before they had asked and thank goodness I did because when I walked in the door Lindsey was pushing. In all of about 8 minutes, Olive was born. She was perfect, healthy and beautiful. I must say, I have always thought Lindsey was amazing and capable of pretty much anything but now I think she is even more amazing!

I can't wait to watch this little angel grow. Congratulations Lindsey and Sean! It was only fitting Olive's birth would be the first I photographed. You may have started out as the perfect clients but over the past few years, you have turned into wonderful friends. We are so happy for you and your now family of four.

Lindsay and Sean waited to find out if it was a boy or girl. The doctor was holding the baby up for them to see.
