My Kid’s Favorite Books to Read Themselves

I have 2 kids in elementary school and I am constantly on the lookout for new books to keep my kids interested in reading. My son just turned 9 and he has always been a pretty good reader but at first, he wouldn’t choose to read on his own unless there was some sort of…

Playing in the Sun | Portland Oregon Child Photographer

This weekend we finally got some sun! It’s been so rainy, my kids were going a little stir crazy being stuck inside after school every day. Sunday ended up being amazing!
