Gorgeous Hawaii Inspired Wedding – Lake Oswego, Oregon

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on September 24th, 2013


This summer I had the pleasure of documenting Alex & Teresa tie the knot at their lovely home on the Willamette River. Since Alex spent the majority of his childhood in Hawaii it only made sense for the couple to have a wedding with details inspired by the island. Most of the flourishes and details were planned by the lovely bride. She did a fabulous job keeping it simple yet vibrant.

With a lovely collection of family & friends by their side the two promised to stay together through thick & thin for the rest of their lives.

With singing, dancing, delicious food and wonderful weather, you couldn’t ask for a more perfect day.

Congratulations Teresa & Alex!

6 Month Old Portraits – NE Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on September 20th, 2013


Babies get so cute right around 6 months old. It’s a perfect time to capture portraits. They are developing cool personalities and they can sit up and interact with the world. I’ve been photographing this little one since she was just a pea in the pod, she’s one of my favorite subjects. I met up with her, her mom and her older brother at home for some play time and portraits on a beautiful summer morning.

We had a great time documenting this special age!



Family Portraits at home – Sherwood, OR

After working what Sharla a few years ago for some portraits I was thrilled when she called for some up-to-date family portraits at her mother’s beautiful home in Sherwood, OR. It was a beautiful summer evening and everyone looked gorgeous in the warm summer glow!


Family Portraits – Eastmoreland, Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on September 17th, 2013

Portland just has the best summers! I had a super fun – summery portrait session with this family at home this August. I also documented the next stage in baby A’s life, 6 months old! And growing up quickly. He loves watching his older brothers play; you can just tell he’s anxious to run around with them. And the older brothers obviously can’t get enough of their adorable baby bro!



Newborn Portraits at home – SW Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on September 3rd, 2013



Newborn baby portrait sessions are always very special. This one was particularly dear to me because the little one’s pretty mama, Ashley, is a good pal of mine from a business networking group. Ashley is the owner of a fantastic home & business cleaning service called Simply Green Cleaning, I highly recommend giving them a call if you are in need of a regular cleaning service.

I was also lucky enough to capture Ashley & Avery’s wedding day earlier this year! This little baby is coming into the world with a super sweet family, including the (reluctant to give up the lime light) family pup – Buckwheat. I can’t wait to document the family memories over the years for this adorable foursome.
