I recently had the pleasure of spending an hour with this lovely lady at Cathedral Park capturing her senior portraits. Working with high school seniors is such a delight because I get to see a personality unfold during our shoot at such an interesting time in a person’s life. High school seniors have a fantastic sense of style and humor. Especially the women of St. Mary’s Academy! We had a great time and got a wonderful collection of images that really capture this young woman’s essence.

What pure joy it is to revisit old friends. Ten years ago I photographed the wedding of these wonderful women.  This summer they invited me into their home for some family portraits with their sweet daughter. We had a great time exploring their home and garden, looking for treasures, enjoying each other’s company and capturing a fabulous series of images that perfectly illustrates the calm, connectedness and love within this family’s home.

Reconnecting with past clients and capturing a glimpse of their current lives is certainly my favorite part of working as a family portrait photographer!

I hope to see this glorious trio again soon.

It brings me such joy to help a family celebrate a new life joining the fold. I was recently given this opportunity with this little foursome. Kim, Nick and big brother B were more than happy to show off their favorite baby girl. Portraits at home are the perfect way to get natural and beautiful newborn portraits. newborn-kid-portraitsnewborn-baby-family-photographykid-portraitsfamily-portraits-Portlandnewborn-baby-portraits

Family Portraits and Senior Portraits – SW Portland

These kids are so fun to hang out with! I met up with this adorable foursome after school one day this October. This has been an especially soggy October in Portland but we manage to find time for a shoot between the storms when all 7 of us could meet! That was quite an accomplishment. Big brother, Sam is a high school senior so I paid him special attention while also capturing the rest of the family. The kids arrived first while mom and dad made their way to Tryon Creek State Park from downtown. This gave me lots of time to pal around with the kids. We had a great time running around the park, goofing off, and taking photos.

By the time Erin & Matthew made it to the park we only had a few minutes of good light left (thanks the the next storm on the horizon) but we managed to get a few gorgeous shots of everyone together. Thank you Johnson-O’Brien family for such a wonderful session! Thank you to the Branstrom-O’Brien family for introducing us!
