Family Session- Oregon Coast

Two weekends ago I was asked by my best friend, Andrea, to photograph her family at the coast.  As many of you know, the Oregon Coast is one my FAVORITE places on earth- so I was thrilled!  We met two weekends ago on a gorgeous Sunday.  This was my first chance to meet Andrea & Willy’s newest addition, Dain.  🙂  He was a doll- much like his older brother, Tauj.  Thank you to all of you for making the drive and taking the time to do this shoot- I think your parents are going to love them!!  (This is a surprise for them!)

Thank you!!

Just for fun!!!

So I have had some requests for some updated pictures of my two little ones.  It made me realize how long it has been since I have posted anything with the two of them- naughty mommy!  My goal is to go through some folders and find some cute pics of the kids from these past few months- shouldn’t be too hard- and post them in between some of my other sittings.  I instantly found these and I just adore them!!  If only we could all be kids again and feel so happy over a hose and running water!  🙂  Enjoy!!!

Spencer- Senior Session

As promised, here are some of my favorite pictures from Spencer’s session.  He was a total character and simply adorable- he had this one shot that he really wanted to do- you’ll see it below.  🙂  He was cracking me up with some of the things he wanted to try- it was great!  Thank you, Spencer, for a fabulous shoot!  I hope you love your pics! 

Haha!  Above is the “Spencer Pose”- isn’t it fabulous??  I love it!

Cody- Senior Session

The Sunday before last I met up with Cody’s family and his friend Spencer’s family for a double Senior Session.  We went to the gorgeous University of Oregon campus- truly breathtaking!!  We were there for a couple of hours and made our way through some very cool areas that I had never seen before.  Cody was a lot of fun to work with- he is a little shy and just adorable!  🙂  We had a great time and joked around a lot- there was a lot of laughter going on.  Anyway- I hope you love your pics Cody!!

I will post Spencer’s pics soon, as well as some very funny photos of the two of them together!  🙂

This picture just makes me smile.  This was his Disco Pose- we all felt it was appropriate with the jacket.  🙂

Jamie- Senior Session

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to meet up with Jamie and her mom, Janelle (hope I spelled that correctly).  🙂  We had a lot of fun making our way from downtown Eugene to a local park.  Jamie was so awesome to work with!  She was so trusting and willing to try anything- including sitting in the ice cold river (that had cooled about 20 degrees from the weekend before!)  Jamie also has the most infectious smile and gorgeous eyes!  All around- just a great girl!  Thank you, Jamie, for an fabulous shoot.  I hope you love your pics!!

So, I just realized the two above images are posed almost exactly the same- Oops!  I still love them both!!  I assure you, we had several different poses on the train tracks- but I love the wind in her hair in this one…

Favorite pic of the shoot (above).  🙂

An icy cold shock.  Haha!  So cute!

Johnny- Senior Session

On Sunday I met up with Johnny for his Senior Session.  We started out at his High School, then made our way to his Baseball Field and we finished our session at Alton Baker Park.  Johnny was a lot of fun- about halfway into the session (after his worked her butt off trying to get him to smile) I told him he could do a serious pose and he suddenly gave me a genuine smile.  🙂  It was adorable!  I kept joking with him and telling him not to smile- which he would then grin.  Thank you Johnny (and Kathy) for an awesome shoot- I hope you love your pictures! 

PS: No worries- no flip-flop shots were included in this post!!  😉
