Here's a really fun Christmas portrait idea! Add your photo to Santa's Book or Santa's Nice List!
I had so much fun with these! What a fun way to add some magic to your Christmas!
I had a blast this year with Christmas portraits! Christmas can be so magical and the best way to get into the spirit is to be around little kids!
I photographed my grandkids this year and tried out some really fun editing techniques to get a sort of "Norman Rockwell" style.
What a pleasure it was to photograph Greg and Toni Rogers and their beautiful family! It was especially meaningful to me as this photoshoot took place on the anniversary of a horrible family tragedy that happened 40 years ago. It is always a hard day for me, bringing up sad memories and reminding me of all that was lost. Being with this family and watching them interact with each other brought joy to my soul.
I was so happy that Brooklyn chose me to do her senior portraits! Most of my work is real estate related and I don't often get the honor of capturing senior portraits. What a pleasure this session was!
Brooklyn was so much fun to work with and was totally willing to try all my crazy ideas! Brooklyn suggested that we have the session at Clackamette Park in Oregon City and I am so glad we did! It was a beautiful day and every portrait turned out so beautiful! It was hard for me to choose just a few favorites to share here.
I got out the quadcopter for something a little different!
It helped that Brooklyn brought her boyfriend along. I immediately put him to work holding reflectors, carrying stuff, and helping me get smiles from Brooklyn. (It was actually so easy.)
This is truly one of my favorites. It was Brooklyn's natural reaction when I asked her to
"Show me your best Instagram selfie pose." We all started laughing and I actually didn't get to see
the Instagram pose, but I am more than happy with this beautiful laugh!
After the laughter settled down, we got a couple of serious shots.
Beautiful scenery, beautiful model!
Every one of her photos is absolutely stunning. I wish I could share them all!
I tried out a smoke stick, for the first time. I had no idea what to expect. How bright would it be?
How long would it last? The experiment worked perfectly! I am so happy with the results!
Of course we had to get some shots by the river!
Isn't she just stunning?!!!

I am booking now for September.
What a pleasure to capture this beautiful wedding! It was obvious from the start that Teresa and Marty are crazy about each other and are so thankful to have found each other. The wedding took place on a chilly, but gorgeous December evening at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. The ceremony took place inside the Octagonal Barn. The venue was dark and crowded, and a real challenge to photograph, but we ended up with some great shots!
After the first look, the bride gave a gift to the groom.
It's a photo of his dog! He was so tickled to see it.
They both got a good laugh out of it, and seriously... how cute is this dog?!!
Now let's pause for a moment to adore the Bride's gown!
Hair and make-up were provided by the Bride's friend, Bailey.
They quite literally "tied the knot" during the ceremony.
Check out these Hershey's Kisses!

One of my favorite moments during the first dance!
A few more favorites, (because I couldn't narrow them down!)
Congratulations Teresa and Martin!
