The Ihdes | Portland Family Pictures

I absolutely love getting to work with this family every year and see how the boys have grown! This year we went to the Jenkins Estate and had an awesome time goofing off around the property. Ryan and Jeannie are actually my accountants as well, so if you happen to need someone, they are amazing at what they do!

The Shaver Family | Portland Family Portraits and Senior Pictures

The Shaver family owns an awesome tugboat company! They hired me a few weeks ago to take some family portraits as well as photograph their son Chris, who is a senior this year at Sunset High School. It was such a beautiful evening at totally unique location. I loved getting to climb up on the tugboats along the river and photograph Chris amongst all the machinery. Definitely a shoot to remember!

The Smith Family | Mt. Hood Family Portraits

I love taking pictures in locations that are both beautiful AND meaningful. You see, these gorgeous parents actually met at Timberline Lodge! Crazy, right? It’s a place that is really near and dear to their hearts, and to their children’s hearts as well since it’s been an annual vacation spot since they were little. So when Tina suggested that we take their family pictures up there on the mountain, I couldn’t have been more excited. Not only is this family amazingly photogenic (Jessica is a professional model), but they are fun, kind, and playful too! And somehow, someway, Oregon decided to cooperate and give us the most beautiful winter day imaginable.

Definitely one of my most favorite sessions to date 🙂

The Benoit Family | Portland Family Pictures

This is one of the most beautiful little families I have ever seen, and they were an absolute pleasure to photograph! Can’t believe we managed to get gorgeous Oregon sunshine in March!

The Lee Family | Portland Family Pictures

The Lee family is a bit quirky.

Nina and Jay are twins and their entire family has a very well developed sense of humor. I think you’ll be able to tell.

Oh- and special thanks to Nina for building/gathering all the props and coming up with these awesome ideas! This girl has mad talent.

The Ihde Family | Portland Family Portraits

The Ihdes are a quintessentially beautiful little American family. If I ever have children, I hope my kids are as cute as these little boys. Seriously.

Ryan Ihde is my amazzzzzzing accountant, and I love taking his family portraits every year! It’s so fun to see how the kids have grown in the last 12 months! This year we took the photos at Summerlake Park in Tigard, as well as a few next to the fountain/lake by the New Seasons on Barrows Road. Gorgeous locations! Gorgeous people!

 

 

 

 

The Curtis Family | Portland Family Portraits

As soon as I walked in their door, they asked me if I wanted a glass of wine. Or a shot of tequila.

Yup this family is pretty awesome.

They live right up the street from me and Jessie and I actually went to high school together. All five of them were home during the last week of March, so they decided a family portrait session was in order! It had been years and years since they last had pictures together!

 

Robin | Portland Senior Portrait Photography

Robin is my other senior rep this year! He has been the student body president at the ISB (International School of Beaverton) for a few years now and he is also my best friend Cissey’s little brother! He’s probably one of the nicest (and smartest) guys I know. I was super happy to take his senior pictures a few weeks ago, now that he finally has his braces off! We went downtown to the northwest end of the Pearl to shoot the first half of these pictures, and then finished up at waterfront park near the fountain at Salmon and Naito Pkwy. Cissey came with us and I even got to take some fun shots of the two of them together! Sibling love makes me happy, haha.

Anyway, if you are a senior and you haven’t taken your senior pictures yet – send me an email! I’m booking for the last week of September and into October right now. Can’t wait for fall!
