Two of my closest friends asked me to be with them in Asheville for the birth of their baby boy. We waited… and waited… and waited… I changed my flight twice, and I had just enough time to photograph this beautiful soul’s entrance before I had to jet away for my next gig. There are really no words to describe what it’s like to be present when a new life comes into the world. So much love for this little one.

    Oh, gosh. Yes! These are beautiful. I love that you captured them in black and white. There’s just something about L&D photos in black and white. Gorgeous work, Cori.ReplyCancel


Debbie and I met online years ago, before Pinterest existed and wedding styled shoots were rare… we had created our own blogs to gather inspiration and somehow stumbled onto each other’s in the process. After a few years of keeping in touch, we both ended up working in the wedding industry and moving to the same state. It’s been so fun to watch her go through the process of planning her own wedding to now owning the top wedding coordination and rental company in the Hood River area. I’ve been able to work along side Hitched in the Hood for multiple weddings now, and her whole team is fantastic. I’ve also fallen in love with photographing anything and everything in the Columbia River Gorge. These images are way past due sharing, but photographing her family was the perfect way to spend a beautiful fall day. We spent the evening exploring an insanely gorgeous property and then watched the sun set over local brews and conversation. Dream day. Looking forward to photographing many more weddings that this talented lady brings to life!

I was so happy to photograph this sweet baby boy after capturing his parent’s wedding in Los Cabos a few years back. Welcome to the world Keegan, we are so excited you’re here!
