Portraits at Costco

Costco-Leaves-2016

It’s our sixth time playing with the colorful leaves at Costco. I’m happy that our kids love this tradition of playing in the leaves and we’ve managed to catch them before they’re all cleaned up or the rains come.

A Touch of Tungsten

Collage of photos in tungsten white balance
I experimented with my new camera and left the white balance on tungsten. The photos looked more interesting than auto white balance, so I created a set of photos with the blue tint.

Fall Photo Portraits with Friends

Brandis Family
We always enjoy a session with new parents. We photographed Tim and Trina’s wedding six years ago and we were blessed to photograph their growing family.

Penny Family
We met the Penny family through our mutual friend Leah Brandis. They have an unique aesthetic to their portrait sessions that provide us an opportunity to explore new areas of Portland.

Stan Family
We were connected with the Stan family for our first daughters through the Bradley birth course. We’ve photographed their family over the years and it’s always a fun reunion to see their daughters grow up.

Dunn Family
Russell and Shannon first started dating when we were newlyweds. Over the years, we have been witnesses to their wedding, for their daughter, and now, their latest addition to their family.

Lamont and Maria

Collage of Lamont and Maria's wedding photos
Lamont and I work in the same department at Vernier, but I didn’t know him until we sat beside each other at a Blazer game. Not long after, I saw him in passing at church, and we began chatting here and there.

I learned that he had been with his girlfriend for several years and he had two beautiful little daughters near the same age as my own daughters. I remember praying that he would marry his girlfriend someday. Not only was that prayer answered several years later, Jenni and I were invited to be their wedding photographers.

We couldn’t be happier for the both of them.

Sisters at Sunset

Vi and Kadie at Lake Sacajawea This is one of my favorite photos of our girls. I love the innocence of their hand holding, Kadie intrigued by the dust kicked up, and the sunset light bringing out the debri in the air.
