My miss Millie got a new outfit today and promptly proclaimed "Mom, lets go take pictures!"

I of course jumped at the chance since she has been very difficult to get in front of the camera lately, she goes through phases. So goes the life of a photographer's daughter. Some days it's all about making the camera competition for attention, and when it suits her, she becomes the attention. Today was one of those rare days indeed.

Another great night

It was another great night out. I live for this stuff, the light was challenging, and the skies threatened rain...

We were able to beat the weather, and these are a few of my top picks from the session. No doubt Mom and daughter will have other favorites, but these just shine for me.

I truly think every individual is gorgeous and unique that I get to work with, I love my job. How can you go wrong with freckles and dimples, I mean come on! I don't mean to gush, I just have so much fun out there!

Enjoy! As always, I will have a gallery up soon of proofs.

Super Sneak Peek

As fall would have it, yesterday was no exception. I found myself counting down to the scheduled session time, wondering if we would be rained out. It rained all day, but I still help out hope. Then, a half hour before the session, the skies cleared and the sun broke out into the most gorgeous light and we were ON! And so it goes for Autumn in Oregon.

Here's a super sneak peek for you from last night. I have several sessions scheduled soon, let's hope for "little miracles" for each. If not, it's "reschedule until we get it right" or next spring even I am afraid.

Enjoy, I hope to have the rest of these up within the week.

fun with the blues...

I have a blue image of my daughter here on my desk, and "K"'s Mom saw it an ogled over it. So I took a bit of time to play and here's what I came up with. People tend to love these or hate them. Personally I love anything non traditional, so this is fun for me!

10-19-2007 OK, so the general consensus from almost everyone is "Creepy"! Right on I say. It's the eyes and the milky glow... With Halloween right around the corner I guess it is only fitting! Sorry "K".....

Senior Portraits

Some of you that have been around my blog for a while may recognize this model-esk (is that even a word? Um no!) girl! I have had the pleasure of doing a session with her each year for 3 years now. It's so fun to watch clients grow up! I have literally watched her grow up as her Mother is a dear friend of mine.

Saturday we took off to a local park kind of off the map, and did some senior portraits. Some traditional and some very much not... Yep, she's a senior already! Seems just like yesterday she was 6 and tugging me down underwater in the pool with her friends. OK, I've embarrassed her enough no doubt! I will add more images to this post as I start to go through them, here's a super sneak peek for you guys! Stay tuned for more...

And a few more...
