Prom Photos

There is a lot going on in our country right now. And while it may seem trivial in the grand scheme of things, maybe a glimpse of something happy is just what we need. Most high school proms were cancelled this year due to COVID-19. But for a lot of the ladies, isn’t one of the best parts of prom dressing up, anyway? So why not get fancy and do a mini photoshoot with your prom date? That’s exactly what this couple did – and I was honored to be a part of it.

Porch Portraits | Week 2

Because so many people in my neighborhood have been staying home over the last few weeks, I offered neighbors the chance for porch portraits – a quick photo session from a safe distance for an excellent price. Here are a few from week two!

Newborn Portraits | Baby Elaine

I am always honored when I’m asked to photograph a newborn, and doubly so when it’s for a new client. Little Elaine is a truly precious gift, and she did great in her modeling debut! It certainly didn’t hurt that Dada & Papa did an amazing job collecting props and coming up with ideas. Isn’t she perfect?

Family Portraits | Long-time Friends

My first portrait session was about 12 years ago – an engagement session for this couple. Now they live across the country and have three kids who are growing up way too fast. But when they’re back home visiting family, I always love catching up and taking their photos. I was honored to shoot these in the church where they got married!

Fall in Columbia River Gorge

A few weeks ago I traveled to Portland, Oregon for a work conference, and I took advantage of the opportunity to visit the Northwest by renting a car on the last day to drive the Columbia River Gorge scenic drive. Not only was Multnomah Falls as impressive as expected, that drive in autumn was one of my all time favorite drives. And all of the waterfalls along the route were gorgeous!

Despite the pouring rain, I explored much of the area, almost in complete solidarity at times, and I loved every minute of it. Here are a few of my favorite shots – most with a new wide-angle lens, which proved to be perfect for waterfalls and scenery.
