Beautiful Teen Girl Portraits and Family Portrait In The Studio

These sessions are a favourite because the Teens transform in front of your eyes. 

It's not just about the hair and makeup. I get guys in the studio too. It's because they have the freedom to express themselves for who they are and we have a lot of fun. 

For this shoot, we did have hair and makeup by the amazing MJ Park. We also added a Family Portrait session in at the end.

Habitat for Humanity Portraits - Portland Oregon

I had the wonderful pleasure of being able to photograph the families who have been accepted into the Habitat For Humanity Program for this year. These low income families will contribute 500 hours toward building their new, interest free homes.
If you would also like to volunteer for Habitat, just visit their website. If you are a "creative" (photographer or graphic designer etc) and would like to volunteer with this or other organizations, you can register with Creative Cares . They will fit you to the right nonprofit, as they did with me. It always feels good to give back to the community in a way that makes best use of your skills. For me, it feels as though I have really made a difference.
On that note, I would like to send out a huge thank you to Matt Kallio who assisted me with the shoot. He not only helped haul gear and set up but he went a little out of his comfort zone by using puppets and funny faces to help make the set a happy and fun place for the families.

Family of Six Photographed in West Linn - Family Portrait

What a fabulous family and wonderful children, each with their unique outstanding personality made for a fun afternoon of  shooting.

This family have an avid appreciation of photography so I had to keep on my toes and come up with some different ideas as well as add in a few more traditional ones.

Clearly at ease with each other, the family fell into poses very naturally. I suppose because we were in their home, this added to their comfort.
