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!)

Song and Photograph of the Week - September 29, 2014

One more day of freedom! Fall term starts tomorrow for me with classes from 10-4pm with 10 minute passing breaks. My free time this term will be at a minimum with having something going on 6-7 days a week. Whoo!

This week's song of the week is Howard Shore – The Fellowship Reunited - feat. Sir James Galway, Viggo Mortensen And RenĂ©e Fleming
This song is from Lord of the Rings, and was found under the intense studying genre in Spotify. I thought it was fitting since school has started for everyone now :) You can get your study on now with some awesome music!

Photograph of the week! This one was taken last week on Monday (day before the first day of fall) at sunset. I do love fall sunsets, but I will miss summer :(

This is God's fall handiwork :) Pretty brilliant!

Scott and Shelby | Family

I had the great opportunity to photograph a long time neighbor and family friend back in July! They had gotten a new great dane puppy, Lincoln. She has grown so much and so fast! I think they make a pretty cute family. They were a breeze to photograph, and might be my quickest session yet. We cranked out their session in 20 minutes! I thought we had gone at least an hour...nope! I block out up to 2 hours in case pets, children or clients need breaks, but Scott, Shelby and Lincoln rocked their session!
