Krachinski | Family

Mandie was drawn to win my 300 Fan/Likes Mini Session giveaway back in July. In September I got to photograph her family! Though it rained for the first 5 minutes, they had a great attitude and we started the session in the rain! This bunch has some talented and crazy flexible kids. I had a blast with them, and I think I got some amazing pictures for them. Look for yourself!

Song and Photograph of the Week - October 27, 2014

Guess what?! One month until Thanksgiving, AND my birthday! As I've been saying, these months have been going by way too fast. If Thanksgiving is coming up, so is Christmas! I'm not ready!

I am taking a History of Rock Music class at PSU this term. We have finally gotten into the 50's and into real rock music. So, the song of the week is going to be an older one :) The Chords – Sh-Boom - Single Version 

My mom has been asking me about getting pictures for her Christmas cards. So I made them stand in the cold (I wasn't that cold, they were just complaining haha) yesterday when it got all sunny and not so blustery! This is just one I got of them!

Song and Photograph of the Week - October 20, 2014

Ive had a few great fall sessions this month! As much as I hate the rain, fall colors are beautiful! I am definitely not looking forward to the constant rain coming next month :(

Short post today, I have lots to do! :)

In one of my new favorite shows, Forever, I heard an awesome song! It's called New York - The Boxer Rebellion

Photograph of the week, picking one I haven't posted anywhere else yet! I really wish it had more fall colored leaves, but that's okay. I found this cute little stream on my hike to Ramona Falls.

Maleah | 1st Birthday Cake Smash

I just realized I never blogged my first cake smash session in July! GASP I know!! You guys have been seriously missing out!

I photographed Maleah when she was a newborn, and was so happy when her mommy asked me to do her 1 year old pictures. Little did we know she wasn't feeling great at the session, but she was still cute as can be! We went up to a lavender field in Corbett, and it was gorgeous! The honey bees didn't bother us at all, they were too busy with the flowers. I hope you enjoy her pictures as much as I do!

Blake | Class of 2015 Barlow Senior

I had the privilege to photograph this class of 2015 Barlow senior, Blake! I was so happy when he showed up wearing my favorite color! This was a relaxed session in downtown Gresham, my second session there. The relaxed and causal nature of the session I think, was perfect for Blake's reserved personality. I wish him luck as he finishes up his last year as a high school student, and continues on to college!

Song and Photograph of the Week - October 13, 2014

Middle of October already! Fall leaves are going to be gone soon, so if you're looking to get family portraits done inquire now! I only have a few spots available due to my crazy schedule! Family session information can be found HERE!

Song of the Week, another from my favorite band, Parachute! Parachute – What I Know
This song is a great example of my favorite sound. I love their voices! I hope you enjoy it too!

It was hard to pick an image for the Photograph of the Week. I shot a family session last night, and as I was driving home, a gorgeous fall sunset caught my eye. I had to stop and get a picture, the sky was on fire with gorgeous yellow, orange and pink clouds!

Song and Photograph of the Week - October 6, 2014

October already! Sad summer is leaving, but this is the most popular time for family pictures! Due to my schedule with school and my nanny job, spots are limited, BUT I am available for Fall Family Portraits! Inquire soon to get a session!

I've been on a classical (or classical sounding) kick for a while now. Its calming, and helps me focus. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do! The song of the week is Yo-Yo Ma – The Mission: Gabriel's Oboe 

I could not choose just one picture from a couple recent sessions! So you get to see one of a lovely family, and one of a 2015 Barlow Senior!

I absolutely LOVE this image! It shows off these ladies' personalities SO WELL!

I also love this image of Blake, great smile, and relaxed. It was not hard photographing this young man! (His session blog post is coming this or next week!)
