A Day in the Life {family session preview}


A few months ago my sister-in-law asked me to join her at her parents' property for a family session. Well, when you put over eight people together, including ages 2 years to 82 years old, perfectly-posed portraiture tends to go out the window and is replaced with timeless, playful candids depicting their lives, their loves.  Join me as we peek into a day in the life of my niece Addie at 'Grammie and Googlely's'.

Adeline (age 2) and Adeline (age 82)

So much love and appreciation and hugs to all the Furlow's

Sneak Peek | Ms. K and Mr. A


          This handsome fellow right here is my Aiden.  
          He's my most favorite nephew in the whole wide world.
          His little cousin Ms. K is just as adorable.
          I am so lucky the cutest kids in the world happen to be a part of my family.  <3

Thanks to NBA & K for the fun stroll in the park.  I already miss them!

Big Hugs and Much Love!

A Glorious Giveaway | Tina Steinberg Designs & Didi Danielle Photography CLOSED

Back in June I received an email from Tina Steinberg of Temecula, California.  Her family was joining her on a trip to the PNW and she wanted to book a session with me to get updated portraits of her kids while in town.  Since living in California, all of their portraits featured the typical SoCal backgrounds and Tina was ready for a change.  We shot their session on the Willamette River, using the fabulous Portland city skyline as the backdrop.  You can see their session sneak peek here.  

After learning that Tina is a fellow 'mama-preneur', I jumped on her website and found children's fingerprints embedded in sterling silver charms...  genius!  Since discovering her unique and 'unordinary' jewelry designs, we decided to join forces and treat our friends and clients, followers and fans with a glorious giveaway too perfect to pass up.  

When I met with Tina to discuss the design, it happened to be a bit of a pivotal time in my life.  I was about to celebrate my 10th Anniversary with my husband, weeks away from our daughter starting first grade, enjoying my career and learning to let all sources of negativity in my life just fall by the wayside.  It was Tina's idea to create a necklace that focused on the greatest loves of my life; my husband, my daughter, and my passion for photography.  She created this piece just for me, and it's called the Love Tags Necklace.

Graduating Senior Sneak Peek

When someone feels uncomfortable in front of a camera, it is quite difficult to change that.  Trust me, I understand the feeling, it's usually the uncomfortable ones who choose a career of being behind a camera.   ;-)  But given that Alyssa really had to step out of her comfort zone with me, I think she gave it her all.  Her Aunt Jen tells me she might have even enjoyed it a little.  :-)

Alyssa and her Aunt took me to Cook Park in Tigard, Oregon for my first time.  It's a huge 79-acre park, right along the Tualatin River.  I really liked it, i'm glad they took me there, and I will definitely have to come back for the Festival of Balloons.  How lucky are they that they live right next door and get to watch the hot air balloons from home every year!?


Alyssa and Jennifer,
Much Love and Appreciation,

Sneak Peek | Baby Love

This little beauty turned the big O-N-E this month, and there is no better way to capture such a milestone than to book a mini-session.  Thank you to her sweet parents for choosing me to catch some precious moments with your lovely little doll.  She is so special!
