The only Oregonian girl friend I've made in my new neighborhood is MOVING! I wanted to photograph her before she drives off to build her new mid-western life. She has these fabulous old cowboy boots that she never wears, so this seemed as good an opportunity as any to get some use out them. They're great, and so is she! I'll miss you Claire, best of luck in St.Louis! :)

Jessica's Family

I could make excuses. I could say, it was moving across the country. I could say, it was because I was busy rebuilding Smatt Wedding Photography from the bottom up. I could say a lot of things but, the fact remains I have neglected this blog for far too long! Well, I'm BACK NOW!

I flew down to Florida to shoot for a medical magazine in the Palm Beaches and while I was in town I got a chance to catch up with my old friend Jessica. Quite a few things have changed since meeting in middle school. One of the more obvious is that she's been busy procreating! Now that she's made some beautiful babies with her fab partner Dave, it was high time for a family portrait.

After shooting something a little more classic, we filled a blow up pool and let little Noah go wild! That FL sun is SO bright, so my flashes and I really had a battle, but that's what keeps me loving this job. There's always a new challenge!
