Cannon Beach 2014

It’s March. I know. But as a photographer there is always something that gets pushed to the side burner while I edit client sessions, or family sessions, play with g-babes, work on my yearly photo book, do the normal obligatory chores, watch TV, eat, sleep, work at my real job, and then do it all again.

Brings back memories so fond it creates longing to be there again right now. I know why you didn’t get to it until now, God was giving us all a gift five months later. That is a lovely picture of the Native American girl–I wasn’t with you for that one. Did you find her on the beach?

Sweet note Linda. Perhaps you are right about the timing of the post, and yes, the Indian girl was down by Haystack Rock as the sun was setting. I asked permission to take her picture. Mary

OK, that one with the banana slug was just gross. He does not deserve to have his picture taken. Otherwise, nice job. I missed you guys again this year. I love to have my picture taken! Part of the problem with us seals and sea lions (and other marine life) is that global warming is messing with our habitat and food supply, making it hard for us to survive where we used to live. I might not be able to come back to Cannon Beach. But wherever I am, I will fondly think of all of you. Keep up the good work, Mary!

Thank you KG! You are quite a sneaky little seal. For those reading that may not understand, one year we had an amazing seal on the beach that let everyone get close and take pictures.

While the work is hard, the benefits of getting to hold and be around these last two babies has been pretty special! (Makes me so excited about my g-babe Cole coming in May!) My friend, Gloria, has two sons and two-daughter-in-laws who each now have a daughter of their own. I know Gloria and Michael’s […]

What wonderful photos of our new little granddaughter! I am still smiling! I love the amazing job you did Mary! I’m just overwhelmed with how great these pictures turned out. I love how proud Blake and Sara are as new parents. What a special memory for us all. Thank you Mary!!

Omg Mary, you are amazing! I LOVE the pictures so much! You did such an incredible job and captured so many great moments! Thank you a million times over for taking the time to capture these precious moments for us!

Oh Mary, what a precious little baby girl and your pictures are fantastic. I am still laughing, picturing your gallant maneuvers to protect Grandma’s afghan. You are the BEST!
My favorite picture is the little doll with her pink hat and her little hands tucked under her chin. What a sweet family.
Love You Honey,

Addi is such a beautiful baby and Mary does such an amazing job at capturing her most precious moments. Well done!

Thank you everyone! I told Gloria she isn’t even my granddaughter and yet I want to put a big canvas on the wall of her! She’s a sweetie and I’m happy for everyone who gets to love on her each day. Mary

Oh. My. Gosh. She is absolutely perfect!!! What a good little client she was doing all those poses perfectly! The one of the hands on either side of her head reminds me of Sydney- not just the pose, but her expression and where her hands are. LOVE them all. You might want to reconsider your current thoughts on future newborn photo sessions. You’re so talented!

I Heart Faces Photo Challenge – “Everyday Life”

I volunteer taking pictures for church several times a year and this was taken this month. This little blonde cutie was in Sunday School and she brought her Jesus Storybook Bible along. She saw my camera and gave this sweet little smile. Now smile your way through the other everyday special moments over at I Heart […]
