High School Senior~Samantha

Samantha was another wonderful senior referral from the Gresham area.  These girls have been giving me more business than local people. :)  I shot her photos at one of my favorite spots and the weather was just as gorgeous as this girl.  A self proclaimed tomboy who spent most of her life in her swimming suit, whether it be as a lifeguard or competing, Samantha was just stunning.  We had so much fun laughing, along with her mom (moms are great supporters, along with being prop master and wardrobe consultant).  At the end of the shoot, we did some photos in the water, luckily, it wasn't freezing for her!  Congratulations, enjoy your senior year!

Family Photo Shoot~The "B" Family

Haha this photo shoot almost didn't happen.  While dealing with a semi sick kid, weather that looked like it REALLY wanted to rain and some phone tag, we made it happen! We busted through this in 30 minutes. Woo hoo!  Thanks so much to my friends and their adorable children for being so flexible! :)

Family Photo Shoot~The "G" Family

I've been friends with Miss Virginia for quite a few years, our youngest babies are only a few weeks apart in age.  She is such a wonderful, caring woman and her family is such a delight.  I regret that there isn't enough of me to go around to spend the time I REALLY want to with all of my awesome friends, but cherish it when I do and find it the highest compliment when they want to hire me for family shoots!  

Large families can always present different challenges, lots of kids running around, you never know if you're going to get even one good shot of EVERYONE looking in the right direction.  But this group was so AWESOME, probably one of my favorite family shoots I've done.  They were so natural in front of the camera, they flowed with my creativity and the result were some adorable moments caught forever!
