Sellwood Senior Session | Emily

Sellwood is one of my favorite areas for shooting. The main park, riverfront and wetland area make for perfect backdrops and give so much variety without adding in a lot of travel. Emily’s style and outfits were perfect for her sellwood senior session and the weather was so perfect that day. Coreene met us on site to give Emily a natural summertime camera ready look for her shoot. Even girls who don’t like to wear a lot of makeup can have a great camera ready look and not have to stress over trying to do it themselves. I had so much fun photographing miss Emily and her amazing smile and I’m just obsessed with all the gorgeous light we had for Emily’s session, here are a few of my favorites!

Canemah Senior Session | Alondra

Canemah was the perfect location for Alondra’s senior session and really suited her outfits perfectly! The day started out a bit stormy and at one point we had to wait out some rain under a huge umbrella! Once the rain passed, it was gorgeous and I actually love the moody stormy look we captured right before the rain hit! Since we were shooting in Oregon City, we started out the day getting ready at the Oregon City office. Makeup by Madi perfected Alondra’s camera ready look for her Canemah Senior Session. Here are just a few of the favorites from the day! I just love the view up there.

Hillsboro Senior Portraits | Jennie

Hillsboro Senior Portraits with Jennie from Hillsboro High School.  Jennie chose Rood Bridge Park in Hillsboro, Oregon for her senior session. It’s such a BIG park with lots of different settings to choose from and worked well with her outfits. Jennie was also sporting some of the clothing she bought at our exclusive event at the Francesca’s boutique in Clackamas Town Center Mall.  My awesome stylist Coreene met us out at Rood Bridge Park to do Jennie’s Makeup, for her senior session Jennie decided to wear her gorgeous long hair down and naturally straight. Like a lot of my girls, Jennie doesn’t like to wear a lot of makeup on a regular basis and she wanted to feel comfortable and look like herself. They were so pleased with the look Coreene did for her, highlighting all her natural beauty without looking over done. The light was so pretty for Jennie’s session and we found a pretty patch of blue flowers and created some amazing images for Jennie, which ended up being some of their absolute favorites!

Jennie is so laid back and easy to work with, and I don’t think she even realized how truly stunning she is! I had so much fun sharing her images with her parents Doug and Cheryl at her Premiere, it was entertaining to watch mom and dad debate over which was the best image to hang up on their wall. Mom and Dad’s almost always have a different opinion and it’s always interesting to see who wins 😉 I can’t wait for them to see their prints!

West Linn Senior Portraits | Cassidy

Today I’m sharing Cassidy’s session for her West Linn Senior Portraits. Cassidy is such a sweetheart and I had so much fun running around the pearl district with her and mom Linda for a morning session in Portland, Oregon.  Cassidy started out her morning meeting up at the Vivid Chromatics Salon with Aryka, for Hair and Makeup. It’s so nice to be able to offer my clients this service, being pampered before your shoot is always fun and takes away the stress of having to figure it all out for yourself.  Cassidy doesn’t normally wear a lot of makeup, so Aryka made sure she felt comfortable while still giving her a camera ready look.

Since Aryka’s salon is in the pearl district, we just had to walk a block down the road to officially start our shoot! Cassidy brought 4 casual chic outfits for her session, my favorites were the bright pink top and bold blue that looked so nice with her eyes and hair. Many of her outfit choices were purchased at our exclusive Francesca’s boutique event at the Clackamas Town Center Mall. Armed with cute outfits and the perfect senior portrait look, we roamed the blocks of the pearl district looking for beautiful light and backdrops, which were easy to find!

We ended the day getting lunch at my favorite, Lovejoy bakers!

I was so excited to get home and edit Cassidy’s session and even more excited to present them to her and her mom at their premiere. Luckily I had just bought a new box of tissues for the office because their were definitely some mama tears of joy shed at this premiere =)  Truly there’s nothing more rewarding for me as a photographer to see my happy clients enjoying their photos!

Here are a few of the favorites from Cassidy’s session!

Senior Pictures Oregon City | Haylee

Haylee was my last class of 2015 senior before graduation! Big shout out to her and all my other 2015 seniors who graduated this past week! We met up for her Senior Pictures Oregon City session, starting at the office for Hair and Makeup. I love Haylee’s style, the outfits she brought to her session and she was an absolute natural in front of the camera. Simply Stunning.

We started off shooting in the alleys of downtown Oregon City. I especially loved this  green wall that looked gorgeous against the tones of her skin and hair. Haylee wanted some natural rough textures for a background so we headed over to the covered wagon, which surprisingly was a great little area to shoot!  We wrapped up Haylee’s senior picture experience at Canemah with some gorgeous light! I hope you enjoy her pictures, they are some of my favorites! I hope I get to work with this gorgeous girl again some day =D

The light was just AH-MAZING for this session!
