Garrett - Senior Photography

Along with all those Christmas sessions I had going on, I also was busy with some senior photography.  Deadlines for yearbook photos are quickly approaching and it's the time seniors really start to get serious about getting senior portraits.  Garrett is a recent transplant to Oregon, coming recently from Oklahoma.  His school has an earlier deadline than many, so it was imperative that we got them done quickly.  We ended up shooting on a gray, wind and wet day (which is pretty much all of winter in Oregon!).  He was a trooper though and didn't complain despite the fact that we were standing on a windy bridge in the biting rain and sitting down in puddles of water for shots on the ground.  Kudos to him!  His photos turned out absolutely wonderful and it was a pleasure to meet his father, who came along on the shoot with him.

It's Christmas Mini-Shoot time!

October and November have been crazy months for me!  I've done so many sessions these last two months and have enjoyed every minute of it.  I love the families, I love the adorable kids, I love the smiles and the laughs.  It has been exhausting and crazy busy but so wonderful!  Here's some of my favorite shots from some of the mini sessions I've done in the last two months.

The Johnston Family

This shoot was so much fun!  I went out to their house in the country and shot in the leaves from a huge tree in their front yard.  It was relaxes and easy and really cold but so much fun!

 Oh yes... even Donut the dog got his own photo!

Baby Maija

Baby Maija was 9 days old when we photographed her and she was having a bit of a grumpy day.  But in the end persistance and patience (and a lot of nursing!) won out and we ended up getting some wonderful shots!  It was such a pleasure to shoot her and catch up with her mom, Kristin.  She and I were next door neighbors until age 10 in a little town about 150 miles away.  It's crazy that photographing her baby brought us back in touch.  I'm so thankful for the little extra things that make this business so special and fun!

Pisha Family

This family was so fun and adorable!  They even did a great job of scouting out the site and finding places they liked for photographs.  Here are some of my favorites!

Jackie, Steve and the kids

Jackie came to me on referral from Kate's Mom (see Kate's photos below).  I hadn't met Jackie or her family until this day but it couldn't have gone better.  They are just relaxed, no muss kind of clients and I love that!  Plus they have adorable, active twins (Hi to Jude and Kyza!).  They were so much fun!  Here's a few of my favorites.

Carter's Playdate Session

I love these short and sweet playdate sessions for the little ones.  Carter is two and very active but we were able to get some great shots.  Isn't he just adorable?!?
