Fall Family Portraits – Sauvie Island, Oregon

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on October 29th, 2014


A lovely day with one of my favorite families! I have been photographing this foursome since they were just a twosome.  A family of four can be a great challenge to capture, especially with toddlers. From looking at these beautiful portraits you might not suspect that these toddlers were… fussy.  Just an little chasing, playing, patience and finesse, oh, and a fast camera is helpful too! Andrew & Jennifer were thrilled with the results, and so was I.  Family portraits are a wonderful way to commemorate the warmth, connection, and love in a family.


Family Portraits with Pets – SE Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on October 21st, 2014


I recently met with and captured portraits of this gorgeous couple and their sweet pups in SE Portland. Allie & Katie are traveling nurses working here in the Portland area for a spell and they got in touch with me for a portrait session. Most likely because it is SO beautiful in our fine Pacific NW.  The ladies are originally from Virginia (which is where I am originally from too!) so we bonded over sweaty summers and being different in a red state!

They have the most adorable one eyed pup named Little Bit and another furry baby named Willow.

The five of us had such a great time creating portraits on a perfect summer evening in Portland. Thanks ladies! Come back to see us soon.



Family Portraits – Oregon Coast

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on October 12th, 2014


This summer I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Jody, Cat & little M. The three of them joined me at the Oregon Coast for some family portraits. M immediately captured my heart with his warm smile and dashing good looks. The four of us had a fabulous time running around on a warm summer evening – and I got some of my favorite portraits of the year!


Couple Portraits on the Oregon Coast

Ah love! It’s a beautiful thing. Especially when you are on the spectacular Oregon coast on a perfect summer evening!

I met up with Kelly & Brian for an engagement portrait session for the wedding they’re planning for next summer in California, in their hometown. What an adorable, fun, and relaxed couple they are. I had a great time frolicking on the seaside, capturing portraits of these two lovebirds. Congratulations Brian & Kelly!


Family Portraits – Laurelhurst Park

Family Portraits SE Portland
I met up at Laurelhurst Park on a perfect summer evening with the sweet family, and the four of us had so much fun romping around in the beautiful light while I captured Baby T and his parents as they basked in the summery splendor of the park. I love watching little ones grow and capturing their evolution over those precious first months and years, and Baby T is certainly no exception. Thanks to Ben and Angela for inviting me to capture their little one as he crosses the one-year mark and moves into toddlerhood. Watch out, world!
