“Well your mama made your pretty
And your mama made you sweet
Your daddy gave you daydreams
And more cushion in your seat
Your mama gave you those windows
To your beautiful soul
Your daddy got more love for you
Then you could ever know

You remind me of you
Yes you do now
You remind me of you”

Gabriela ~ Portland, Oregon Senior Photographer

If someone would have told me two years ago how much I’d love photographing seniors, I might have looked at them and thought, senior-citizens?  I was fresh into starting my photography business and focused mostly on families and young children.  Fast-forward to today, with dozens of family shoots under my belt, and the change of pace of a senior session is a welcome one.  It’s calm, it’s smooth, it’s fun, and I can take my time composing beautiful photographs.  Not to mention, I get to meet awesome, and inspiring young women like Gabriela.:)

The ‘H’ Family ~ Salem Oregon Photographer

As a photographer, it is always wonderful to have repeat clients.  It’s affirmation that I am doing my job well.  In this case, this family is extra special because they were some of my very first paying customers!  I photographed the little tyke in her dad’s arms back when she was a newborn two years ago.  It was so long ago that it even pre-dates my blogging days.:)  So thankful for the folks who believe in me and what I do!  I wouldn’t be where I am without you.:)

The ‘A’ Family ~ Salem Oregon Family Photographer

Oh Oregon, you are so pretty in the summer!

When Janna contacted me for photos, she said something that really stuck with me.  We were talking about the ages of their children, and how fast they are growing up.  She said, (to paraphrase) These really are the best years of our lives, and we want to remember them.  I cannot think of a single better reason to have family photos done.  Life is busy, but let’s cherish our children while they are still in our homes, and make sure we have something to remember them by when they have flown the nest. <3
