Last summer, I took photos of Marina with her adorable baby boy in her stomach, at this exact same location in Oregon! That was a session that became very special to me, which is why it was such a joy to be able to come back to the same spot with her husband, Alan, and with Mason […]

I had been looking forward to this shoot before I even got to Portland, when I first planned it with Makayla. I love shoots with couples that are so in love with each other and these two also happen to be beautiful and photogenic!! I loved spending some time with them on the Columbia River […]

I met Kelsey a few weeks ago in Portland when I took some portraits of her to use on her fashion blog! I had such a lovely evening with her and when I found out that she is engaged, I knew I wanted to snatch up the opportunity to take engagement pictures of her and […]

When Sam and I were discussing possible locations for her shoot, she suggested Cathedral Park, and I was so happy!! I saw plenty of pictures of Cathedral Park before coming to Portland when I was browsing the web for shoot locations, but I hadn’t shot there all summer! So, I’m thankful I had the opportunity to […]

I met Rose last week at the Pittock Mansion to start off our shoot! I had been there before to visit and knew it was beautiful, but I didn’t think it would help my photos be THIS beautiful!! Although, I shouldn’t give all the credit to the mansion, most of it should go to Rose […]

I met Violet on Sauvie Island in Portland to take her senior photos. This has quickly become one of my favorite locations here! There is so much green, farm land and since it’s an island, you have a gorgeous view of the river as well! Not only is Violet absolutely beautiful, but she is such […]

Kelsey is a fashion blogger who lives in Portland and regularly posts about her fashion and life over at her blog, Ladies in Navy. I think one of my new favorite things is to work with fashion bloggers! Why? Well, they are use to taking outfit photos daily so they are completely comfortable in front of the […]

I took photos of Alyssa when I first got to Portland and had such an amazing time! When we were planning her shoot, she mentioned that her band could use some photos, and I was thrilled! This was my first time taking photos of a band, but they are all so sweet that I instantly felt […]
