Warmest Congratulations - x2 || Bend, Oregon Photographer

Last weekend I was honored to photograph my step-sister's newborn twins and big brother, Marcus. I could write a book about how much fun I had, how nice it was to take a little road trip with my oldest son, and catch up with my college buddy and her family to boot (thanks, Kell-Kell for the hospitality!) ...

But really - you just want to see the images, right?

As you wish...

Sleepy Melia, and hungry Marisa - this pretty much sums up the shoot. 

Light tester. Road trip partner. 

Warm, cozy & ready for their close-ups...

Snug as two cute little bugs could be...

{sigh} could be my favorite. All tangled up...

Ok. Maybe THIS is my favorite. Not sure I should play this game. They're all pretty cute.

Melia - sacked out.

I do love daddy pictures. Little frog... happy girl.

Chillin' out with mama.

A handful... or two.

Sweetness... {love the teddy...}

What {a Fair Visit} looks like || Bend Oregon Photographer

Together with five other Oregon photographers I am continuing a lifestyle blogging project entitled "What ___________ looks like," an idea inspired by a group of photographers out of Montana.  On the third Monday of each month I will fill in the blank with my own word or concept, and link to the next photographer's blog until the circle is complete.  I hope you take the time to enjoy this monthly photographic journey, and enjoy each of our monthly projects. 

What {a Fair Visit} looks like!

I realize the Deschutes County Fair happened way back in August - but I've been simply too busy to have even looked at these images until now. We moved on August 1st, and by the 3rd, we were ready for a major unpacking break. With our moving helper in tow (and fellow blogger, Gary Irwin - a.k.a. my dad), the boys and I set out for a fun day of elephant ears & sunshine. We also were hoping to run into my favorite "bunny gal," Amanda and her mom. Amanda is my bunny expert & wrangler for the Easter Bunny photo event, 3 years and counting! We did, indeed, run into Amanda - and had a first-class tour of her award wining pigeons!

We've arrived, and are ready to find us some animals!

Look who we ran into! Max's classmate & friend Alisa, with her chicken.

Separated at birth?

Don't think my ginger didn't fall in love with this lil' hopping ginger... 

Beautiful bird details.

Queen of the pigeons. And bunnies. And more....

Fair buddies... they had a great time together
Now, head on over to Erin Berg Photography & check out her day at Todd Lake!

They're coming!!! || Bend, Oregon Photographer

I'm just a wee bit giddy because my brother and his family are coming over for their first visit to our new place this weekend! It will be short and sweet, but... the SWEET outweighs the short by a long shot!

I'm sure we'll spend some time sharing lots of our family memories, and hold discussions about their 3 new {pregnant} milk goats they are getting on Sunday!

In honor of their visit... I've re-published my article from True North Parenting Magazine's June/July 2012 issue about Planting Seeds of Memories - based on our trip to Alaska. You can read the entire article here on my travel blog.

And just for fun... here are a couple non-Alaska Irwin-Teichrow adventure images:

Cascade Head Nature Trail... with Grandpa Irwin.

Found a snowman... perfect prop!
Belknap Hot Springs Snowy fun

Our own Fourth of July parade!

Fun Silliness as we work our way down the Northern CA coast.

The Studio is OPEN! || Bend Oregon Photographer

Well, the outdoor studio at least!

I'm SO excited to share these images - not only were they the first official session on our new property, but just so happen to also be with longtime friends and their adorable daughters! What a treat for me, I'll always cherish this inaugural session! The best came (of course) at the last... so be sure and scroll through the whole set!
