Session date:  March 24, 2014

Venue:  The Grotto 

To say that these are some of my favorite people would be an understatement of magnificent proportions!  And I am supremely thankful that they trusted me to take family photos for them earlier this year.

Photographing people you love dearly is actually more challenging than you might imagine.  Wanting everything to be perfect so they are happy with the outcome becomes even more important.  Even so, I managed to relax and have a good time in the beautiful and serene setting of The Grotto.  As you can tell, they are pretty fun to be around so it wasn’t too much of a chore. And, as usual when our two families get together, utter silliness ensued (if I posted outtakes from the parking lot afterwards you would see what I mean).

Thank you, Deiss family, for loving MY family and allowing us this opportunity to create some lasting memories.

Jordan: Senior Model {Class of 2015}, pt. 1 · EUGENE, OREGON {EUGENE, OREGON SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER}

Session date: June 1, 2014

Venue: Owen Rose Garden

I attended high school with Jordan’s awesome mom, Jennifer, so I was very honored to be asked to take her senior photos this past spring.

I adore Jordan’s timeless sense of style and her bubbly personality and had a wonderful time capturing some moments with her (even though, yes, I did feel old taking senior pics of the daughter of one of my own high school clasmates!).

Jordan is one of my 2015 senior models, so stay tuned for more photos of this lovely young lady in the near future.
