Paris & Anna | Portland Senior Photographer

I absolutely love photographing seniors. They are fun, vibrant and usually on the brink of their next big adventure. Working with Paris and Anna was especially fun because they brought out the best smiles and energy in each other. I am excited to see what their futures hold.:)

These a fabulous, Andrea! Great job with your posing… you really captured their personalities!

My family! [Portland, Oregon Family Photographer]

Yep!  I get to claim every single one of these folks.:)  Let me break it down for ya, cousin-in-law, second-cousin, cousin, second-cousin, uncle, aunt (and also my mom’s BFF!), second-cousin, cousin (and life long bosom buddy), second-cousin, cousin-in-law.  Did you keep track? 😉  I have been loved on and blessed by these people more than one blog post can contain, but let me try anyway.  From left to right: fixed my car while husband was in Afghanistan, gives me the best baby boy hand-me-downs, shares spiritual wisdom, helped clean my dirty old house before I gave keys to new owner (among many other things!), makes me things and friend for life, helped paint my two story house, loved me, fed me, and loved me some more.  Not sure where I’d be without them! 😉  Scroll down to see copious amounts of gorgeous photos and my smiling mug at the end.

One of the best, and equally most nerve-wracking, things I get to do as a photographer is photograph people who are near and dear to my heart.  It’s fun because it just feels like hanging out with friends.  It’s nerve-wracking because you love them so much you don’t want to let them down.  Courtney & Andy, I think the world of you, and you have inspired me in many ways!

(Cue the music:)

“Thank you for being a friend
Travel down the road and back again.
Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidant...”

Miranda, Portland Oregon Senior Photographer

Young and beautiful.  I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t one of the big reasons why I love to photograph seniors. 😉  But I will also add: fun, carefree, excited, hopeful, and ambitious.  It’s invigorating and sometimes contagious.:)
