Magical Christmas Portraits! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2021/12/magical-christmas-portraits 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.

A Great Day for Family Portraits! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2021/11/a-great-day-for-family-portraits 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.

Senior Portraits Brooklyn Roberts https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2018/8/senior-portraits-brooklyn-roberts 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.)

Senior Portrait- Clackamette Park, Oregon City.Senior Portrait- Clackamette Park, Oregon City.Senior Portrait- Clackamette Park, Oregon City.

 

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.

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!

Teresa and Martin https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2018/1/teresa-and-martin 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.

Jason and Tanya https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2017/11/jason-and-tanya Classy, elegant, and fun. These are the first words that come to mind when thinking about Jason and Tanya's wedding. 

The weather was incredibly stormy the night before, but they both handled it with the grace that typical Oregonian's have when it comes to the weather. It is what it is. We hope it turns out nice, but we're okay if it doesn't. 

As it turned out, it was cold, and threatening rain all day, so the ceremony was held indoors, but we were able to get all of the portraits done outside without a drop of rain hindering us.

The ceremony took place in October at The Ainsworth House in Oregon City. The historic venue was built in 1851 and offers 2 acres of gorgeous gardens, plus a large ceremony/reception facility. It is truly a stunning venue. Everything about it is beautiful and classy!

Jason and Tanya, I'm so glad I was able to capture your special day. It's obvious that you adore each other, and I wish you many years of the very best life has to offer!

Here are some of my favorite images from the day:

Raimund and Tanya https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2017/11/raimund-and-tanya A beautiful wedding begins with a beautiful venue, and Lakeside Gardens in Portland, Oregon is hands-down the most beautiful venue I have ever seen. Gardens, lakes (swans included), gazebos, bridges... there's a little bit of everything, and it's all gorgeous. 

It was so much fun being a part of Raimund and Tanya's wedding. It was easy to see that the friends and family who were there supporting them were beyond excited about this wedding. Everyone was in perfect agreement that Raimund and Tanya were meant for each other. 

It had rained the entire week before the wedding and the morning of the wedding, we still couldn't tell which direction the weather was going to go, but it turned out to be a glorious September day! 

The ceremony itself was SHORT. 10 minutes at the most, but it was full of surprises!

 

There was no first look, so Raimund had not seen Tanya since the day before.

 

This adorable flower girl walked about half-way down the aisle, carefully scattering flower petals,
when suddenly she just decided to forget it and took off running the rest of the way!

 

After the bridal party had all walked in to the chosen song, and the flower girl was settled, there was a brief pause. Then suddenly the most unlikely song blasted from the speakers. When the "Star Wars Death March" started playing before the bride came through the arch, the Groom got a little worried. It was a complete surprise to him!

 

However, after a few lines of the death march, the music stopped, we all had a good laugh, and then a more traditional song began to play, and the bride came in, escorted by her brother.

Tanya was a stunning bride! 

 

The Best Man played a couple of pranks on the Bride and Groom when it was time to exchange rings. First he pulled this giant ring out of his pocket, which was also full of confetti. When the bride and groom refused to use it, he pulled out a Ring Pop, which they also wouldn't use. After one or two more options, he finally pulled out the real ring! 

 

Beautiful table decor at the reception!

 

 

I love this beautiful forever cake! Fun fact: In January,
I will be photographing the wedding of the cake maker! 

 

A sweet moment captured during the first dance.

 

This Groom was so fun to work with! He did whatever I asked him to do, and then put his own twist on it!

 

 

Portraits in the Garden

 

 

 

 

The Groom and Groomsmen enjoying a toast before the ceremony. I loved this room at Lakeside Gardens. It was so easy to get great shots of the guys here!

 

 

This little guy would not hold still for any portraits. We finally gave up, and I actually like this a lot!

 

 

The Groom and Groomsmen all wore "special" socks, and they wanted to be certain we got pictures of them.

 

 

Such a beautiful day! I wish Raimund and Tanya the best of luck, and many, many happy years together!

6 Great Locations for Senior Portraits https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2017/6/6-great-locations-for-senior-portraits It's that time of year! The time when you realize that your baby is now a Senior in high school, and it's time to have Senior Portraits taken.  In most cases, Yearbook photos are due in the fall, so now is a great time to book your session.

There are several things to consider when booking a Senior Portrait session.

  • What should I wear?
  • Weather!
  • Where should I have my session?
  • Which photographer fits my needs?

We'll address some of these other concerns later, but today, I'll give you some suggestions on a few really great places for Senior Portraits, and what makes them so good!

These locations are all in or near Oregon City, and are not necessarily in order of greatness! If you know of another great location, please let me know in the comments!

 

1. Hillendale Park

Hillendale Park, located off Clairmont St. in Oregon City, is one of my top 3 favorite locations for Senior Portraits! There are wooded areas, streams, bridges, lots of benches, and a grassy field. If you'd like a duck to co-star in your Senior Portrait, Hillendale Park has those too! The Senior Portraits below were all taken at Hillendale Park.

2. Clackamas Community College

My newest favorite location for photos, is Clackamas Community College, located in Oregon City. The grounds are beautifully maintained and you'll find all kinds of fun architecture, artwork, trees, flowers, benches and more. The Sculpture Garden features some crazy stuff, including a couch (although it's not a very comfortable one)!

3. Singer Creek Park

Singer Creek Park can be found off of Linn Ave, in Oregon City. There is a beautiful meadow, surrounded by trees and a walking path. All of the following photos were taken at Singer Creek Park, although not all of them are Senior Portraits. You can see why I love this park! In the spring, it is lush and green and in the fall, it is absolutely glorious. Also... there are apple trees!

4. Molalla River State Park

Molalla River State Park oddly enough, is located in Canby, not Molalla. I just love this beautiful park! It's a great choice for Senior Portraits because of the different types of scenery. There are wooden fences that are great for sitting on, grassy fields, lots of trees, and ... the river. The following photos were from a family portrait session I did there.

5. Rivercrest Park

Rivercrest Park in Oregon City is a convenient location with lots of trees and grass to work with. It can be a bit of a challenge, because there are many houses surrounding the park, and several parking lots. However, you can see by these photos, that although it may be challenging, it's not impossible!

6. Wait Park

Wait Park is a gorgeous little park in the center of Canby, Oregon. I have done an engagement session there (photos below) and just loved it. There are plenty of trees, bushes, flowers, benches and the gazebo to work with, so there are lots of options. This park is also surrounded by houses and parking, but it's really worth the extra effort!

Jason and Tanya Engagement https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2017/4/jason-and-tanya-engagement Engagement sessions are probably my favorite kind of portraits. It is just so much fun! My clients, Jason and Tanya, and I had been trying hard to get their photos done and the weather kept destroying our plans. However, Friday night we hit the jackpot! The weather was sunny and warm and the flowers at Crystal Spring Rhododendron Gardens were in full bloom. Jason and Tanya were so much fun to work with and their photos are stunning. They will be getting married in the fall, and I can't wait to photograph their wedding!

 

 

It's obvious they are crazy about each other.

 

 

Everybody wants to be famous and have their photo on the internet, so we had a few photobombs, including squirrels, geese and this duck.

 

I love this moment, which happened, right after I directed them to do a certain pose. These two have fun together!

 

Have you ever seen anything so romantic?

 

 

 

 

I'm so glad we waited for good weather instead of moving our location! I hope to be able to go back again some time!

Special thanks to my husband, for being my voice activated light stand for the evening. He doesn't know it yet, but I plan to employ him more often. I mean, he works for cheeseburgers, and follows directions (mostly), so I can hardly pass that up!

Year in Review -Portraits and Events! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/year-in-review--portraits-and-events 2016 was a busy year! Not only did I shoot 110 houses and properties, but I also had the honor of photographing hotels in Idaho Falls, Tacoma, and Ocean Shores. When I wasn't shooting houses or hotels, I was capturing smiles. I did somewhere around 15 business head shots, 15 portrait sessions, a baby dedication, a baptism, an awards banquet, and a birthday party/band concert. I love this job!

 

Here is a short video highlighting some of my favorite photos from 2016. Enjoy, share, and... as always... your referrals are very much appreciated! I do real estate, weddings, engagement, portraits, maternity and even pets!

Year In Review- Real Estate https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/year-in-review--real-estate In 2014 I photographed 51 homes listed for sale in the Portland-Metro area.

In 2015 I photographed 89 homes.

In 2016 I photographed 110 homes. Working part time only.

I was able to cut back my hours on my "day job", and with new, interesting, and fun technology to work with, plus a little more availability, I'm hoping to shoot 150 homes in 2017. Momma needs an SUV!

I love this job, and I'm grateful for all of the real estate agents that have worked with me this year. I've had the opportunity to photograph some beautiful, interesting, and even some "cosmetically challenged" homes. I was able to meet turtles, bunnies, deer, snakes, frogs, birds and many, many friendly cats and dogs.

Not very many dragons, though.

 

Watch the video below for highlights from some of my favorite homes.

Baby Damien https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/baby-damien While I don't photograph babies often, I did have the wonderful opportunity to capture a friend's new little one. Damien slept through the entire session, to the disappointment of his parents (who wanted some photos with his eyes open), but to the joy of the photographer. Babies are much easier to photograph when they are sleeping like little angels. It was so hard to choose my favorites from this session... they're all so cute!

It was tons of fun, the food was spectacular, and I got to practice concert photography, which is much harder than you would think.

Anyhoo...

Here are some highlights from the event.

The Halverson Family Fall Session https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/the-halverson-family-fall-session The Halversons were so much fun to hang out with! It was a beautiful fall day, at Hillendale Park in Oregon City. The kids behaved as well as can be expected when having a photo shoot right by the playground! Towards the end, I ended up just taking a more journalistic approach, because the kids were DONE posing.

Here are a few favorites:

Favorite Fall Mini Session https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/favorite-fall-mini-session Yes. I admit it. I have a favorite fall mini session. No offense to any of my clients, but this one happens to be my daughter and my grandson, so I can't help it. Also, their "session" went on for quite a while, in between clients arriving and departing, and after I was finished with all my sessions.

At first, Charlie refused to sit in the wagon, so Sharayah sat next to it and that's as close as we could get.

He was not in a smiling mood, either.

He refused to even look at the camera, so we made it a Vogue shot.
He may or may not be flashing gang signs. I'm sheltered - so I don't really know. LOL.

We let him do some exploring on his own and he had a great time looking for spiders, rocks and apples.

And THEN... we finally got him into the wagon!

 

Tasty apple!

The Roberts Family Fall Session https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/the-roberts-family-fall-session I had so much fun with Fall Mini Sessions this year! I borrowed a wagon, added a few simple props, and settled in for a couple hours of photos at Singer Creek Park in Oregon City. The Roberts family brought their adorable dog, Marty, and I fell in love with him.

A few of my favorites:

Ruthann https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/ruthann Once in a while, I get to work with someone who makes my job so easy. Ruthann is one of them. She seemed to be completely at ease in front of the camera. She required little direction and smiled as if she grew up in front of a camera lens. It was such a joy to shoot her Senior Portraits! It was hard to choose only a few favorites for this blog. They're ALL my favorites!

This session was held at Singer Creek Park in Oregon City, on a beautiful fall day!

The Tone Brothers https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/12/the-tone-brothers I am so very behind on blogging my portrait sessions! Therefore, without further ado, I give you "The Tone Brothers".

These guys were so much fun to work with! Okay, 2 of them were. 2 of them, (Bill and Dave) were being uncooperative and obnoxious, but it would be out of character for them to behave any differently!

It was a cold day at Clackamas Community College, but it really was fun and I'm humbled that they trusted me enough to take their band photos. Also, if you ever want to hear some rockin' tunes, let me know. I've got connections with these guys. :)

Here are some of my personal favorites:

 

It's possible that the person being a goof in this photo might be my husband.

Family Portrait Day https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/6/family-portrait-day One of the fun things about being a photographer, is documenting my favorite people as they journey through life. Recently I took family portraits of my daughter, her husband and my Grandson Charlie. It was Mother's Day, and it was also the day that Charlie was dedicated to God in a short ceremony at our church. Afterwards, we went outside for photos. 

If you've ever tried to have family portraits taken with a toddler in the equation, you know how challenging it can be! It was loads of fun though, and the photos actually show him the way he really is- a toddler full of energy and wonder, with a tiny bit of world dictator mixed in.

No one is allowed to tell Charlie when to smile. He will smile if he feels like it.

 

He allowed his people to kiss on him. Briefly.

Tickles were required to make him laugh.

And... he's done. He abandoned us for the playground.

Caught a candid smile while he was playing with Momma.

A Family Affair https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/5/a-family-affair What an honor to take photos of the beautiful Erdmanczyk family! They made my job so easy! The shoot took place at Molalla River State Park, in Canby. It was a beautiful setting and even though it was just barely drizzling, we were still able to get some fantastic photos! Here are my personal favorites:

Senior Portrait Session Part 2 https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/5/senior-portrait-session-part-2 By the time we finished Jeremy's Senior Portrait session in February, our fingers, toes, lips and noses were frozen. We decided to wait until spring to get a few more poses done. We had a beautiful, WARM, sunny day and we took these photos at Hillendale Park in Oregon City. Here are some highlights from session 2.

 

No, I didn't carve the "Class of 2016" into the railing. Ha! That's the magic of Photoshop.

There's a funny story behind this photo! His mom requested a staged photo of him on the phone (because that's how she sees him all the time) and not long after that, he actually got a phone call, so I told him to go ahead and answer it. I snapped a bunch of pictures while he was on the phone, no staging or acting required!

Senior Portraits! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/5/senior-portraits We started Jeremy's Senior Portraits in February, to meet his yearbook photo deadline. It was a beautiful, sunny day, but it was around 28 degrees, with a wind chill factor of "I can't move my lips". Jeremy was a good sport and we got through it as quickly as we could. Here are a few favorites.

Stay tuned for part 2 of Jeremy's Senior Session. We finished up in the spring, on a much warmer day!

Allison and Dolly- Best Friends https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/3/allison-and-dolly--best-friends Such a fun day with Allison and her horse, Dolly at Beaver Lake Stables in Oregon City! Allison was a joy to work with and Dolly was friendly and cooperative. It was easy to see that these two girls have a very special friendship! Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

Holiday Mayhem https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2016/1/holiday-mayhem The holidays can be a busy time for photographers. Between the last week of November and the first week of January, I shot 3 Christmas events (one included Santa!), 2 Hotels, A Holiday light display for a business, a huge birthday party, 2 Senior Portrait Sessions, and 4 houses. Here are a few highlights:

 

In December I had a Senior Portrait session with Brylee Moyle. It was so much fun! Brylee brought a few of her track medals along and we took an edgy, dramatic, approach to her session.

 

Next was a Senior Portrait Session at Clackamas Community College, with Jeremy Carnahan. It was in the low 30's that day, and the wind chill factor brought the temperature down to the 20's, but the sky was blue and it was an otherwise beautiful day!

 

Detail from the Christmas Light display I shot for some Executive Offices.

Here's my cousin and me, hamming it up in between shooting all the family portraits at this Family Christmas party.

 

After the holidays, the pace picked up quickly and I shot 2 homes in the first week of January.

This Oregon City home had multiple offers within 48 hours of being live on the market. I'd like to think it was my photography that drew buyers in, but more than that, it's a beautiful home, in a great neighborhood.

 

Lastly, another Oregon City home with lots of original charm, on a huge lot, and expected to sell fast!

So there you have it. A tiny little glimpse into my world over the holidays!

Marissa and Malachi Tie the Knot https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/11/marissa-and-malachi-tie-the-knot Last weekend my youngest daughter got married. Talk about an emotional roller coaster! I was the anxious and nervous mom, and I was also excited and so happy for her. Marissa married a great guy. Two years ago, when he ate a dried up, dead scorpion because the reward was dinner and ice cream at our house, I had a feeling that he was probably going to hang around.

He did... and we couldn't be happier for them.

The wedding was dreamy and romantic. The bride was stunning. And the groom looked pretty good too! We hired a photographer for the ceremony and portraits, but here are some highlights from the prep time and reception that I took and I'm so excited to share them with you!

Getting into a dress with miles and miles of material requires a lot of assistance!

Time to go!

 

This wedding was so much fun!

Sunny Days and Blue Skies https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/10/sunny-days-and-blue-skies When you're a photographer, you can control the light, your gear, and even your subject, to a degree, but one thing you have no control over is the weather. Sunlight can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Clouds can create beautiful, soft, diffused light and add interest to a photo, or they can make your photo look dreary and sad. And then there's rain. That's a completely different set of challenges! Fortunately, I've had the very best luck lately with perfect weather! Here are a few of my favorites:

Fall is here and the rain is coming, so I'm glad I got these properties in while the sun was still shining!

Abby X 2 https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/9/abby-x-2 A beautiful day. A beautiful setting. 2 best friends. These were all the necessary ingredients for a super fun photo shoot at Hillendale Park in Oregon City. When the girls first arrived, I learned that their names are "Abby" and "Abby". It was suggested that I call them "Abby 1" and "Abby 2", but I kept forgetting which one was "Abby 1" and which one was "Abby 2". I resorted to calling them "Abby Tall" and "Abby Short", because one was taller than the other.

 

We did individual Senior Portraits for each girl.

 

Then we did some best friend shots.

There may have been some silliness....

These girls were an absolute joy to work with. I had a blast, and I think they had fun too!

My Happy Thoughts https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/9/myhappythoughts I started out this blog "episode" by writing a really sappy intro. It was so sappy, even I didn't like it. So this is the do-over.

This blog isn't going to be a showcase of real estate, or my fancy photography (or what I "fancy" to be my fancy photography). Instead, I just want to show you a few things I am thankful for.

These are my happy thoughts. Every single day.

 

Be it ever so humble, old and half-finished... there's no place like home. Someday we'll polish it up. For now, we gave it a face-lift with a new coat of paint. Thanks to my husband, son and daughter and her boyfriend for helping us get this project done! I love this house and I'm thankful for it.

My Grandson, Charlie. He makes me smile every day.

My kids, the wonderful spouses they brought into (and are about to bring into)
this family, my husband, our grandson. (And coming in October, a Granddaughter!)

Tanner. So obnoxious. So lovable.

Buddy, so ... not brilliant. So snuggly.

What can I say about Optimus? She is beautiful, and special to me.

 

 

Speaking of special... these next two photos are my 2 dearest friends. These are the kind of friends that you share something special with. Even though there might be miles or years between the time we get to spend together, there is still something unbreakable there.
I'm so very thankful for these two ladies.

It's embarrassing and stupid that I can't find any recent photos of me with my cousin, BFF and partner in crime, Kim. This photo was taken in 2010, I think. My husband says when we get together we act like teenagers. He's probably right... but it's all her fault.

And this is me with my dear friend Shannon, who has been special to me since we were kids.
It's truly an honor to be able to call her my friend.

 

So there's a tiny little peek into my life. These are absolutely not all of my happy thoughts. I've just run out of time and room. I am more than thankful for my Mom, my Brothers, my Mother-in-Law, my Co-Workers, my Boss, and my Church and the people there who have loved and encouraged us.

And last but not least... I'm really thankful for chocolate. And ice-cream.
I'm so thankful, I'll probably go eat some right now.

 

Thanks for reading this. You can subscribe to my weekly email for interesting photos, stories, discounts and drawings.

Real Estate Highlights for August https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/8/real-estate-highlights I have such a fun job! I get to tour all kinds of homes, from the lovely to the not-so-lovely, and the spacious to the teeny tiny. Here are my favorite shots from the last 2 weeks of real estate photography.

 

Logus St. Oregon City

This home lives in the Historic Oregon City area, but was built in 2007.
It has a great view of the city from its two front decks!

 

Tonya Ct. Beavercreek

This home has been thoroughly remodeled. Everything is new, and it sold in less than a week.

 

Childs Rd. Lake Oswego

Charming home on the Tualatin River. Wouldn't you love to sit on your back deck every evening and enjoy this view? So peaceful and calming. There's actual river access behind those trees.

 

Abby Ln. Clackamas

Speaking of wonderful backyards, check out the back deck of this Clackamas home! You could have some serious barbecues on this deck!

 

There you have it, my favorite features of homes I have shot so far in August. Which one is your favorite?

Oregon Angel Fund Event https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/7/oregon-angel-fund-event It was a beautiful evening atop the old Washington High School in Portland Oregon. It's called "Revolution Hall" now. The school has been tastefully and artistically remodeled to include a few bars, an auditorium and an elevator to the rooftop "Deck". Revolution Hall hosts weddings, concerts, corporate luncheons and more.

It was on the Deck of Revolution Hall, that Oregon Angel Fund held their event. Oregon Angel Fund is an investor driven angel fund which supports new startups such as Globesherpa, RYNO, ActionSprout, and many more. At the event, the cherished "Exit Award" was given, and start-up company representatives were given a moment to share about their companies and thank investors for their support.

My contract with Oregon Angel Fund does not allow me to share any photos with people in them. Some of the investors prefer to stay anonymous. However, here are a few shots of the view from the deck and some of my favorites from the evening.

Looking West from the Deck at Revolution Hall (1300 SE Stark St. Portland).

 

Looking East/SouthEast from the Deck.

 

There's some kind of dip buried under all that fish.

 

Dessert!

 

One of my favorites from the evening. I sort of took advantage of somebody's drink they left unguarded.
She actually caught me in the act and predicted that it was going to be a great shot!

 

The event lasted from 7pm-10pm. It was very challenging, as the light was constantly
changing, and there were tented, lit areas as well as open unlit areas to shoot.


I'm very excited and honored to have been asked to shoot this event.
Thank you, Oregon Angel Fund, for a great experience, and thank you
Revolution Hall, (and of course Portland), for the great view!

Real Estate Highlights July 9th-20th https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/7/real-estate-highlights-july-9th-20th I cannot wait for you to see the highlights of the wide variety of homes I have photographed in the last 2 weeks! Tiny, large, older, newer, traditional and even WEIRD. Here are the highlights. Be sure to watch the Virtual Tour (it's towards the end). You'll see a very unusual home!

 

Dewey St.

This adorable Oregon City home is under 1000sf. and sold within 3 days of hitting the market.

This is a lot of kitchen for such a tiny house!

Dunhill St.

Next is this light and bright Damascus home. I LOVE the wood floors. So beautiful.

Alder St.

This beautiful, 3 level, West Linn home has a living room, 2 family rooms and 2 kitchens.
You know, in case the kids never move out.

This home also features a view of Mt. Hood from the deck, which can be
accessed from the living room as well as the Master Bedroom.

Ramsby Rd.

This one will blow you away! I'm including the entire Virtual Tour here so you can see the whole thing. This is the most unusual home I have ever seen. It's located on 19.87 beautiful acres outside of Molalla.

Isn't that the most unusual home ever? How about those indoor sidewalks?

 

 

Friday I received a call from a Real Estate Broker whose photographer injured his foot. She had 2 listings that needed to be photographed right away! So I drove out to NE AND SE Portland in one day to get them done for her.

SE Belmont St.

This is a charming older home with a finished basement and adorable backyard.

Prescott St.

Another older home, this one in NE Portland with a mostly finished basement that
is rumored to have a room that would be perfect for growing... "plants".

Those are the highlights for the last 2 weeks! I'm curious to read your comments on the virtual tour!

Hemstreet Maternity Session https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/7/hemstreet-maternity-session Last October, I had the privilege of photographing Ren and Cassie Hemstreet's wedding.

Yesterday, I had the honor and joy of photographing their maternity session. What fun! Here are a few of my favorites, although, I admit, they are so photogenic, it was nearly impossible to narrow it down to just a few!

 

Baby Esmee is scheduled to arrive the first week of September!

 

These 2 (and a 1/2) are so easy to photograph!

 


We were all laughing because I placed them in this pose, but then said they looked like a 2-headed monster.

 

Cassie was such a good sport as I had her getting up and down and sitting and standing.

 

 

I can't wait to meet little Esmee and I hope I'll get to see her once in a while.

Good luck Ren and Cassie! It's obvious that little Esmee is already loved beyond measure.

Real Estate Highlights https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/7/real-estate-highlights I shoot a lot of Real Estate, especially in the Oregon City area. While it's not always the most interesting stuff, sometimes I do get to photograph some very nice homes, or homes with unique features. I have to keep this blog updated to help my SEO. So, I'll be posting a "Real Estate Highlights" blog once a week, that will highlight the most interesting or unique features of homes I've photographed.

These are some interesting highlights from my most recent real estate endeavors:

 

Ferguson Rd. Oregon City

I loved this particular shoot on Ferguson Rd. in Oregon City. The people were friendly and made me feel welcome and comfortable. Like we had known each other forever. In fact they made me wish I HAD known them forever. These are the kind of people that somehow reach into your soul and make it feel better. Sadly, they are moving to Redmond, Oregon. One of the things I enjoyed about this shoot was visiting the horses (who I discovered did NOT appreciate my speedlight- in fact they seemed downright offended by it). I also got to see the very impressive display of a Killdeer, who was protecting her nest by "playing" injured and therefore distracting me from stepping on it.

This is the kitchen at the Ferguson Rd. house. Not too big, not too small, not too fancy, and check out that toe-kick light around the island! I could definitely see myself in this kitchen!

 

Beckman Rd., Oregon City

Last week I got to shoot a house on Beckman Rd. in Oregon City. This home has its own private air-strip. According to the owner, it doesn't get much use anymore, but many of the surrounding neighbors still have small airplanes parked in their hangars. If you have an airplane, you should buy this property.

 

Clairmont Way, Oregon City

This home on Clairmont Way in Oregon City has this huge tree in the backyard, complete with swings. It made me think of my grandkids and how much fun they would have on that swing! That is, when they're old enough to even play on a swing. :) 

 

14th St. West Linn

Check out the clouds in this shot of this 1940's remodel on 14th St. in West Linn!

 

Here's the kitchen inside the West Linn house. So spacious and functional!

 

 

That's it for this week. I'll post another "Highlights of Real Estate" some time next week.

Gotta keep those search engines happy.

John Natteford's Head Shot Session https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/7/john-nattefords-head-shot-session In spite of the near 100 degree weather today, John was a great sport and patiently posed for over 40 clicks of the shutter. We wrapped it up in around 30 minutes, to get out of the uncharacteristic heat. (We Oregonians don't normally get this kind of heat until August. We're not ready!)

Here are a few of my favorites from today's shoot.

 

Thank you John, for driving all the way from Aurora to have your photo taken by Angie D-Photography. Best of luck to you in the future!

Marissa and Malachi https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/6/marissa-and-malachi What fun to have the honor to shoot the engagement photos of my daughter Marissa, and her fiance Malachi! We headed to the gazebo at Wait Park in Canby, because it holds special significance to them. They became officially engaged there, so it was fitting that they had their engagement photos taken there. There were so many beautiful photos, it was really hard to narrow it down to just a few for this blog!

Such a cute pose in the gazebo!

 

 

 

Pinky Promise...

 

 

This shoot was a bit of a challenge, as we were not the only ones at the park. I had to place Marissa and Malachi very strategically to keep people, cars, bikes, kids, you name it - out of the photos.

It was worth it!

As a photographer, this was such a fun photo shoot! As a Mom, oh boy... this was a tough one. My baby's getting married! These two are very much in love and are committed to facing life together, whatever it brings. I wish them many, many years of love and happiness.

A Springtime Photo Shoot https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/4/a-springtime-photo-shoot Last weekend I took a break from Real Estate Photography to get some shots of my adorable little cousin. I think she's a 3rd cousin to me (my cousin's daughter's daughter), but it's just so much easier to call her my cousin.

I've been shooting so much real estate lately, it took me a few minutes to warm up. You don't have to wait for a house to smile, or tell it where to put its hands! Emory was a little shy at first too, but once we got in a groove, we were able to get some of the most adorable photos!

 

She is just so stinkin' cute!

Don't let that adorable smile fool you. I think her eyes are hiding just a pinch of mischief!

 

Thank you Jamie, and Emory - for the repeat business, and the little person smiles. I so enjoyed this opportunity!

Christopher and Nicole's Engagement Session https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2015/3/christopher-and-nicoles-engagement-session It was a beautiful, sunny day in February. Winter in the Northwest has been exceptionally warm, and it felt like spring. It was perfect for an engagement session at a big red barn in Eagle Creek! Christopher and Nicole were so much fun to work with! Christopher was brimming with ideas for the shoot. Here are a few of my favorites:

Thank you Chris and Nicole for being such good sports and making this engagement session so much fun! I can't wait to photograph your wedding! I'll see you in a few months!

'Tis the Season! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2014/12/tis-the-season I expected the holiday season to slow down for me as a photographer. I couldn't have been more wrong! So far this month I have been ridiculously busy with real estate photography and I am very thankful for that! However, the really fun stuff is portraits! I ran my very first "Holiday Special" and did a couple of mini sessions that day. I had so much fun working with these families!

 

The Hatton family was an absolute joy.

These three boys were busy, but cooperative and very well behaved.

 

The next mini session consisted of my Aunt and Uncle and their clan of kids and grandkids. What fun! It's always a treat to see the Garners and this day was no exception.

These girls LOVE their Grandma and Granddad!

 

Savannah is very skilled at pulling Granddad's hair.

 

Yesterday I got to take photos of some more super adorable kids! Meet Emory and Brodie Goodpastor!

It started out with the challenge of getting them both to look at the camera AND smile at the same time.

But once they warmed up a little, things got really fun!

 

Near the end of the shoot, Emory was pretty tired of me telling her what to do and started "calling the shots" herself. Here are a few of her chosen poses....

I want to thank all of these families for trusting me to preserve your precious memories. I had so much fun and I hope we can do it again soon!

A Tale of Two Weddings https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2014/10/a-tale-of-two-weddings When I was asked to shoot 2 weddings in one weekend, for the same family, I thought it had to be a typo!

As it turned out, there really were two weddings taking place, a son - Ren, on Saturday and a daughter - Ashli, on Sunday. Both weddings were to take place at the Portland Airport Shilo Inn. I accepted the job, (after some pep talks, a whirlwind of events and some soul searching) and began my preparations. Preparing for these weddings meant purchasing and learning an entirely new camera system...in one week. I feel pretty fortunate that I did NOT die of a heart attack!

 

Both weddings were picture perfect. (No pun intended...)

 

The setting was absolutely stunning. Who would think that a hotel could dress up this romantically?

Wedding #1:

Cassie- wore a beautiful lace gown with cowboy boots.

Gorgeous BrideGorgeous BrideThe beautiful bride adjusting her dress.                                                 

The wedding party was so much fun to work with! Everyone was so friendly and good natured about being followed around by the photographer.

 

We did some traditional portraits...

And some not-so-traditional portraits...

It's an understatement to say that the ceremony was lovely...

Wedding #2:

Ashli was positively glowing!

Both the bride and groom were excited to have their 3 children with them during the ceremony.

           The reception room was gorgeous!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We did a few traditional portraits, and lots of candid shots during the partying! This little guy pretty much stole the show during the first dance...

It was such a fun wedding! It was a thoroughly exhausting weekend, but I was honored to have been asked to preserve such precious memories. I learned so much from the experience, and was able to re-connect with a cherished childhood friend and meet her family, which was a special highlight for me.

Thank you Ren, Cassie, Ashli, and Derrick for letting me share in your lives. May your marriages be blessed with love, laughter, health and happiness!

Sarah and Gary https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2014/10/sarah-and-gary Sarah and Gary tied the knot on the grounds of the Newell House Museum at the beautiful Champoeg Park. They were a joy to work with and seemed completely comfortable in front of the camera. The ceremony was beautiful and the company was fun! This was my first wedding to shoot, and I was anxious to get it right, but it went smoother than I expected. What I didn't expect was being completely exhausted for THREE days following the wedding!

Here are a few highlights from the day:

The bride wore orange bloomers and cowboy boots under her beautiful, vintage-style dress.

 

Such a beautiful wedding, in a beautiful setting, with so many fun photo opportunities.

It was an honor to shoot this wedding.

Here's wishing Sarah and Gary Smith many years of happiness and delight!

The Happy Couple https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2014/9/the-happy-couple Today I spent some time at the park with my Aunt Patti and her husband Mike. They've been married for several months, but didn't have any pro photos from their wedding, so they wanted some portraits together. It was a beautiful day for a photo shoot and these two are very much in love. What a pleasure it was to be able to spend some time with them! Here are a few of my favorites from our session.

 

 

 

 

They were practically giddy...

 

They needed very little encouragement when I asked them to kiss...

 

They are both so grateful that they found each other!

 

And they are very much in love...

The Best Day Ever! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2014/8/the-best-day-ever Yesterday I had the joy of taking photos of my lovely 9-months-pregnant-daughter and her husband, who is not lovely, or pregnant-but he IS a great guy, and he's quite handsome.

My grandson is going to be beautiful.

It's hard to choose "favorites" from the photo shoot. They ALL turned out SO good! Here is a very small selection of my favorites...

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We were fortunate to find a quiet, secluded park, that we had all to ourselves.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It's easy to get beautiful pictures, when your subjects are beautiful.

 

Of course, our little guy was very cooperative as well. He was just along for the ride....

 

Breathtakingly beautiful....

 

We tried some fun, creative poses.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Just when you're about to get the perfect shot, somebody "photobombs" it...
which actually ends up making the shot even better!

 

She was truly "glowing".

 

And of course, we can't forget big brother Linus!

A Fun Photo Shoot with Luke! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2014/5/a-fun-photo-shoot-with-luke Yesterday I had the pleasure the taking some pictures of my cousin's son Luke.

Luke is one of my favorite people. It's easy to make him smile and he is so good natured and cooperative, it's ridiculous. When prepping for this day, I was concerned that I might not have what it takes to get him to smile (I'm not a naturally funny person), but Luke was in the best of moods and was one of the best subjects I've ever photographed.

 

It helped having his Mom and Sister there to make him smile, but after about the first five minutes,
Luke seemed to be completely comfortable in front of the camera.

 

Even towards the end, when he was really sick and tired of the whole thing,
he never complained. He just kept smiling and doing whatever we asked.

 

Luke's smile is enchanting. He's graduating this year,
and I'm betting all the girls are going to be so sad!

 

Thank you Luke, for a really fun day. It was an absolute honor
to take your pictures. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you like the results!

A Senior Portrait Adventure https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2014/5/a-senior-portrait-adventure Once in a while, when you're a girl with a camera, someone comes along and asks you to take some pictures. In this case, it was my daughter's boyfriend Malachi, who needed a couple of pictures for his Senior Slideshow right away. Coordinating schedules was a little complicated, but we ended up meeting at a nearby park on my lunch break for a quick mini Senior Portrait Session.

 

10-05-16 Liza Hottel 10710-05-16 Liza Hottel 107

It was a beautiful day, with just the right amount of sun and clouds for perfect shooting conditions.

 

Malachi was an excellent subject. At first he may have felt a little
awkward, but by the end of the photo shoot, he was a pro.

 

We ended up with several shots he can pick from for his Senior Slideshow, as well as quite a few fun shots
like the above, and even a couple of bloopers! I'll let him decide if he ever wants to share them....

The Dalton Family https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2013/12/the-dalton-family The Daltons are the kind of people that just make you feel at home right away. They are warm, friendly, inviting, and also a little silly. These people know how to have fun.

Connie surprised Bob for his birthday, by flying his kids in from out of town. It was the perfect opportunity to have some photos taken together.

The Dalton's beautiful home was the perfect setting.

 

Baby was such good sport the whole time!

 

Lowery_0193Lowery_0193

Did I mention something about silliness?

 

And a little more silliness, in case you haven't had enough yet....

 

They were all so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.

 

Such a fun and beautiful family!

 

Thank you Connie and Bob for letting me into your home to glimpse your family in action! It was such a fun morning!

Tess! https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2013/11/tess My first appointment with Andy an Andrea Van Gorder was canceled due to bad weather, and I am SO glad we rescheduled! Today, the weather was completely gorgeous. Blue sky, crisp and cool, but not biting cold. It was perfect.

This was my very first maternity photo shoot and I was beyond excited. I scoured the internet for inspiration, and the Van Gorders brought some of their own ideas too!

They were excellent subjects- as if they do this every day.

Baby Tess was very cooperative (at least as far as I could tell).

 

Thank you Andy and Andrea, for the privilege of taking your photos today. I hope I'll get to meet Tess after she makes her grand entrance into the world!

Autumn Afternoon https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2013/11/sunny-autumn-mix Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the Landrum family. We took a few family portraits, some head shots, and some photos of their opening-soon daycare.

The weather was absolutely perfect for a photo shoot and the Landrums have a beautiful, wooded, walking trail down the street from their home that made a great setting for a family photo.

 

I especially enjoyed interacting with their son, who alternated between flirting with me and completely ignoring me and wishing me away.

Things I learned from this photo shoot:

1. Check, double-check and triple-check your camera settings to avoid embarrassing yourself.

2. Next time, bring an assistant.

3. Be confident, smile and have fun!

Emory Goodpastor's 1st Birthday https://www.angied-photography.com/blog/2013/10/emory-goodpastors-1st-birthday I was beyond excited to get to shoot Emory's very first birthday! What an honor to be included in the special day!

 

 

 The "Sunshine and Lemonade" themed party took Emory's mom and some Aunties many hours of preparation. The park was decorated beautifully!

We took some time out from the festivities for a quick, private session:

Emory was a good sport throughout the day, and handled her fame with grace and one-year-old style.

What a beautiful little girl and an absolute pleasure to work with!
