Belle’s Rhododendron Garden Senior Portraits were a dream! Belle is a girl near and dear to my heart, she’s one of the strongest young women that I have the pleasure of knowing. I always admire Belle’s determination and drive, her kind and open heart. Belle brought some great outfits to her session, my favorite was the dress that had belonged to her mother. Every year I am so blessed by my clients. These girls have a light that shines despite the darkness that may be looming.

Belle and I met up with Makeup Artist Aryka of Vivid Chromatics at the park. Aryka pampered Belle and got her ready for the camera. I had so much fun running around the park, playing in the water feature and taking advantage of all the gorgeous light we had that day. I’ve had so many fun shoots with Belle in 2016 and I am really looking forward to her concept session coming up spring 2017!

I had a great time getting to know this wonderful young lady more over coffee before the start of her session. I was excited about the different looks we had planned out for her session. Makeup by Madi did a great job with her hair and makeup for each look. Hanna’s Lake Oswego senior session was definitely one of my favorites from class of 2016. We started out with a Grace Kelly look because Hanna loves old movies, Elvis and listening to her vinyl. Her chic boho look down by the river was a definite favorite too. Hanna wanted a floral crown for her senior session too so I made a custom crown to go with one of the dresses she was bringing. The deep blue paired so perfectly with her blond hair and blue eyes. Check out a few of my favorites from her session!

Briana is about to graduate from Lakeridge and I had so much fun with her pearl district session last fall. We started out getting ready at Vivid Chromatic’s salon on 10th and glisan. Aryka always does a great job with our seniors and it’s always a treat being able to get ready in her salon in the pearl. I love doing shoots in the pearl, there’s so much variety in backgrounds and the energy is always so much fun. Briana’s session did not disappoint, the weather and timing worked out so well we were able to get some shots on top of a parking garage just before sunset. The outfits Briana brought for her session suited the city chic look perfectly, here are some of my favorites from the day!

Bailey’s senior session out at her horse’s barn was absolutely magical! The location was to die for and the weather was just what you’d hope for! The saddest part for me was knowing that I was not likely to ever shoot this location again because it’s private property and alas, Bailey no longer keeps her horse there =(  but I digress, this is about Bailey! Teddy was not overly fond of the camera but we captured some solid shots for her equestrian senior session and Bailey is such a fun, beautiful spirit.

We started out the day getting ready at the office, Beauty by Hannah pampered Bailey and gave her the absolutely most perfect, camera ready look for her session. The makeup and hair just suited Bailey’s look and personality gorgeously! Bailey brought some great outfits and it was just one of those days where everything aligns and goes so smoothly. We had so much fun and I can’t wait to share some of my favorites from the day!

Jasmine, one of my class of 2016 Senior model’s had her official senior session at George Rodgers Park in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Her bff and my intern, Ella, helped us out that day too and we had so much fun! Jasmine goes to Oregon City HS, and if you don’t know, that’s where I graduated in ’04 😉 We started out the day at my office where Aryka of Vivid Chromatic’s salon came to do her makeup and hair. Jasmine’s camera ready look was flawless and suited her so well. We headed out to the park on a gorgeous day and finished up before it got too hot! I am sure missing those summer days right about now. Check out a few of my favorites from Jasmine’s day!
