Class of 2013!

It felt like summer this weekend. Summer is senior portrait season, you know. I'm looking forward to seeing the class of 2013 this July and August!

Natasha is a woman of many faces. She's been in front of my camera in the past, as you can see!


When she asked to be a senior rep, I was delighted. We scheduled a session while the cherry trees were in full bloom. The result was ... stunning.

I still have openings for reps in the Salem and Portland areas. Give us a call!

Donna lives in Hawaii now. "But I want a Moonlight Madness portrait!" she said.

"No problem," I replied. "I have photos of a crescent moon, taken last summer. We can photograph you in the studio, and create a fantasy portrait."

"And I want white tigers," she added.

So she caught a flight here, we spent a couple of hours catching up (thank you, Donna, for the vintage wine!) and then it was showtime. One moon + two white tigers + Donna = magic!

And Moonlight Madness.

(The Madness returns August 1.)

Classic Love

Andi and Mark are a beautiful love story. Andi is an accomplished musician, playing violin and music, while Mark owns Poison Frog recording studio and plays guitar. They share not only a love of music, but also a perspective on family life reminiscent of times gone by. "We've got a 1950's outlook," giggles Andi.

For their engagement session, I wanted to capture their classic mindset. We visited a local landmark, Deepwood Estate, and I positioned them on a balcony to take advantage of rim lighting, I added a slightly stylized look in post-production.

The stylizing is mine. The love is all theirs. Can't wait for the wedding!
