Portraits Capturing the first year of life – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on May 25th, 2014

My journey with these two babies began in 2012. Both moms are friends of mine through working out together at Portland Adventure Boot Camp, and both decided to document their pregnancies and new babies with me. Documenting a the life of a new person here on earth is one of my favorite things to do, and when it’s a friend’s baby I treasure it even more! So these two little people turned one right around the time that my babe was being born. And their one year old portraits were the first portraits I captured when I returned to work.

Baby A is Janet and Darrell’s pride and joy. His sparkly blue eyes and warm smile draw you in immediately.


Baby P is the sweet baby girl of Theresa and Brian. That gorgeous thick mane and those chubby cheeks are just the most adorable finishing touches to the cutest little gal in Portland.

More with the gals next door!


There are two little lovelies next door to us, this little one is just hitting the 6 month mark and she is full of personality and as cute as a button. Her facial expressions are adorable. My little one and I have been enjoying sunny afternoons with these ladies, and I had so much fun capturing these portraits of our new friends.


Tiny friends connecting with a little touch of the hand. How cute is that!?


Marriage Equality Wins in Oregon!

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on May 19th, 2014


I’ve been happily photographing same sex weddings since I first started shooting weddings in 2004. At that time we had a brief moment of marriage equality in Multnomah county only to have it reversed and those marriages whose weddings I documented declared “unlegal”. But we just kept on getting married because you can’t stop love from happening. Today, gay marriages were declared legal again ┬áin my favorite place to be and my heart sings! Congratulations to all of my clients and friends who’s lives will be changed by this historic day.

Lately, I’ve been home a lot spending time with my little tot who just turned 3 months old today! I’ve had the pleasure of becoming more acquainted with my neighbors. I am especially enchanted with this gorgeous little gal. Today, she allowed for a mini photo shoot in our backyard. Her lovely mama took photos of my little tiger too, which I can’t wait to see. Here are just a few of my favorites!
