The Jenkins Estate was abloom with so many Rhododendrons!!! I spent a lovely evening with this beautiful, soon-to-be, graduate. It was the perfect evening, catching up with her mom (we used to teach together) and walking through these amazing gardens. I love photographing high school seniors, hearing about their plans for the future and thinking about all of the amazing things that lie ahead. Congratulations Julia!
My nephew graduated today!!! I had the pleasure of photographing him last summer while vacationing at Eagle Crest with family. I am so proud of his accomplishments and look forward to watching him begin the next chapter of his life. And just look at that smile! Congratulations Jarrod!
My last session for 2017! And my 5th year since I started my photography business. There is a lot to love about this job, and one of those is creating relationships with clients and getting to see their littles grow. I had such fun seeing this family again. I taught with this mama before we were moms and took family portraits for them a few years ago. It was wonderful to get them all in front of the camera again! If you are interested in scheduling a session for 2018, it is never too early to get your family onto my calendar. If you are interested in gifting a session to a loved one, I do have gift certificates available. Message me for more details.
My final round of mini sessions for 2017! These sessions were rescheduled due to rain and we lucked out. While it was a definite chilly, fall day - the sun was out, the trees were in full color and this adorable family was a blast to work with. When you get to photograph one of your best friend's family, the session feels like play time.
I have no idea why I haven't been photographing families at this park in Beaverton before now. The amazing trees and plant life here made for a dreamy session with this wonderful family.
I was delighted when I was finally able to book a session for one of my childhood friends. She needed some new headshots and we were able to combine her personal session with a few photos of her beautiful girls and their dad too! Here, in Oregon, we are being spoiled with some amazing Fall weather and I am hopeful it lasts a few more weeks until the rest of my family and mini sessions are completed for the season.
Another super fun session with a super fun family (who I also happen to be friends with). When you get to share your love of photography by capturing some pretty sweet moments with a good friend and their adorable kids, you know you are following your joy.
We've been having a few of those amazing, Oregon fall days and this was one of them. The icing on the cake is getting to photograph your friends families. I don't know if these two kiddos are just naturals in front of the camera, or they felt super comfortable since they see me around quite a bit, but either way take a peek at their adorable smiles.
It has been a few years since I have had the pleasure to photograph this lovely family. As I dive back into my photography business it is rewarding to be able to reconnect with families. We were able to find some early fall color on this gorgeous day. Mt. Tabor is one of my favorite Portland parks. I am grateful for adventurous families willing to hike up and meet me at the top! Happy Fall!
One of the things I enjoy most about being a photographer is the opportunity to sustain relationships with clients and watch their families grow. I last saw this little beauty just days after she was born. A year later and she is busy exploring, jumping and running all over the park! The leaves are changing colors and the air is finally cooling down here in Portland, Oregon. I must admit that Fall is my favorite season. Take a peek at these photos and you might see why.
