Kaytlin’s Sauvie Island, Oregon Senior Session

Sauvie Island, Oregon Senior Session

I don’t head out to Sauvie Island often for shoots, it’s a long drive and it takes twice as much time getting around to all the different locations the island offers. It’s not for those senior’s (or parents) who tire easily. However, I knew that Sauvie Island was the one place that had everything we needed for Kate’s perfect session.

Last year I had Kate’s sister, Bailey on the model team. During that time, the Walton’s have become family to me and I was so happy to be able to photograph Kate this year. Getting to know Kate better this year has been so much fun. She’s much different from her sister but equally beautiful and amazing to know.

I’m so blessed that both Bailey and Kate’s sessions have been some of my all time favorite shoots! For Kate’s session we needed country chic, sunflowers and water. Sauvie Island delivered on all. The day started with Kate getting ready at the office with Aryka, then I enjoyed chatting with Kate and her mom on the drive out. We shot at three different spots on the Island, our last was on the beach. Kate’s outfits coordinated perfectly with each spot. It was a fun day filled with laughter and maybe a few happy tears.

I submitted one of Kate’s images to Senior Style Guide’s Hot 100 image contest and won for the first time! I couldn’t be more happy with this shoot.

Alyson’s Lake Oswego Senior Session at Luscher Farm

Lake Oswego Senior Session at Luscher Farm

Alyson’s first shoot rescheduled due to weather.  Since her new date would take place in a new season we changed up the location. Luscher Farm and the nearby field ended up being the perfect setting for Alyson’s session. The day was gorgeous and the light loves Alyson. Alyson is a smart, savvy, world traveler with her own style. And I have adored having Aly on the AMP Crew this season. The memories and experiences that Aly is gaining traveling is so exciting. The fact that Aly chose to include me in her senior experience is both humbling and a blessing.

Makeup and Hair, done by Aryka  at Aly’s family home was fun getting to know everyone there. Once Aryka had fulfilled Alyson’s dream of being a bronzed, golden goddess for her senior session we set out. Aly’s top request for her shoot was a field of tall grass, so we had to make it happen and I love the one we found. Next we headed to Luscher Farm. Luscher farm was empty and the light was gorgeous. My first time shooting at Luscher Farm was great and I can’t wait to go back again.

Elena’s Portland Pearl District Senior Session

Portland Pearl District Senior Session

Elena, what can I say? She’s just that kind of girl you want to be best friends with. She’s super sweet and kind but she has opinions and tons of personality to go around. She’s a beauty and a black belt. Elena plays softball and has a new injury almost every time I see her.  I just love being around this young woman and she’s so fun to photograph!

Elena’s Pearl District Senior Session suited her and her outfits so well. I love the light we had in the city this day. It was so much fun romping around the city with Elena, her mom and one of her best friends. Anytime you shoot in Portland you end up with a story, our shoot actually went pretty smoothly without too many interruptions. We just had one lady who thought she was a posing expert and tried to take over our shoot! HA! Elena had her hair and makeup styled by Aryka of Vivid Chromatics.

I have had so much fun shoots with Elena and I cannot wait to share photos from our beach and fair shoot at a later date.

Josie’s Portland Senior Portraits

Josie is such a gem and it’s been great having her on the amp crew team this year. Josie participates in student council, dance and her church’s youth group. Always on the go I’m glad Josie wanted to include AMP Crew in her senior year! Josie has been dancing forever and her favorite is tap.It just so happens that my personal favorite shots from this shoot are of her tap outfit! Makeup Artist Coreene glam’ed Josie up for her Portland Senior Portraits at the park for her session. Then we ran around the rose gardens and then headed over to the pearl district to get a more urban background to mix it up. After Josie’s senior session I was excited for her upcoming concept session at the oregon coast. Stay tuned for that blog post too!

Belle’s Rhododendron Garden Senior Portraits

Belle’s Rhododendron Garden Senior Portraits were a dream! Belle is a girl near and dear to my heart, she’s one of the strongest young women that I have the pleasure of knowing. I always admire Belle’s determination and drive, her kind and open heart. Belle brought some great outfits to her session, my favorite was the dress that had belonged to her mother. Every year I am so blessed by my clients. These girls have a light that shines despite the darkness that may be looming.

Belle and I met up with Makeup Artist Aryka of Vivid Chromatics at the park. Aryka pampered Belle and got her ready for the camera. I had so much fun running around the park, playing in the water feature and taking advantage of all the gorgeous light we had that day. I’ve had so many fun shoots with Belle in 2016 and I am really looking forward to her concept session coming up spring 2017!
