The End of 2014 | Photographs in Hiding

2014 proved to be a crazy and fun year.  The lack of posts as evidence of the crazy part.

Nothing is better than photographing the people you care about – friends, family, the places they live, or perhaps the most powerful – the places they once lived … before they left us.

While looking back on the year (and the tail end of 2013), I realized I had some shots in this category in the folder that never had a post but that were some of my favorites.

Admittedly non-technical at times, and in a few cases digital, here they are in all of their random disconnected-ness.

The Olmstead’s | Part 2 | Portland, Oregon Photography

I’m excited to finally post Part 2 of The Olmstead shoot – in video form.  In addition to being cute on film, the Olmstead crew delivered the cute on video as well.   The plan was to capture tons of video footage the day-of, but while editing I realized that we didn’t have enough to keep up with the music track I wanted to use (“Sneeuwland” by Oskar Schuster).

That’s where mom Kelly’s iphone videos came in… and they don’t need any explaining.  

Where the Wild Things are | Part 1 | Portland, Oregon Photography

When it comes to sleepovers at Casa di Uncle Pete and Aunt Lins… we have a lot of fun.

This “Where the Wild Things are” inspired day was no exception – we picked up the niece and nephew in their pajamas, properly outfitted them with their royal garb and ventured into the mysterious land of The Wildwood.  The little prince and princess crossed moats, bridges and rough terrain to finally claim their rightful throne at the end of the winding wooded trail. They hid from undercover woodsmen and listened for special messages sent from the birds through the trees – looking around for the hidden beasts.

Oh the joys of childhood…. (and adulthood — can’t say I wasn’t playing along.)

Stay tuned for Part 2

GIRLS | Portland Oregon Photography

I had the pleasure of shooting some lovely ladies this past weekend in Manzanita, Oregon.   The scene was perfect:  sunset … on the beach…a birthday gal and her crazy buds.   The pure joy and happiness I see in these photos reminded me so much of my teenage years with my hometown girlfriends that I’m still best friends with today <3  These photos are best served with this soundtrack playing in the background – queued up by Santigold – play it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5ocODl0fUI

Enjoy! <3

Kids in the Hood

I love a lot of things about Portland, but one of the things I love most is the cool people that live here (and their cool kids).  My neighborhood park is no exception. Now, first rule of this post – if you want to know the easiest way to look like a total creep, follow my steps below:

1.)  Go to local park with camera

2.)  Ask parents to take pictures of their kids

I know… total creep.  But if you know me, you know I have no shame really and there were some special conditions here.  The sun came out of the clouds 30 minutes before sunset {for the first time I think all winter in Portland} and I couldn’t help myself — look at these kids and you will understand.

The Southard’s | Portland, Oregon Family Photography

Get ready… because this post is out of control. Out of control on a lot of different levels.

1.) Gorgeous family
2.) Tiny houses made of cardboard for baby L
3.) I could have taken a whole days worth of photos of cute home decor
4.) Young parenthood at it’s finest… as told through the lens of sophie the giraffe. Can you spot Sophie?
5.) A lot of kids get bounced in the air by dad but Baby L gets some serious air time
6.) Apparently posts with 60+ pictures is going to be my norm… but I can’t help this..I’m spinning out… too much cuteness.

I was so lucky to spend the day with these 3 awesome folks  <3 Enjoy!
