Graduation Portrait: Tracy in Corvallis, Oregon

Had a great time making both casual and formal graduation portraits with the lovely Tracy!  Isn't her smile contagious!

Hey, she can be serious, too.  When we were doing her formal portraits and I saw her beautiful satin dress, I just had to break out my fashion ring flash and asked her to "strike a pose."  What a great sport! Thanks to both Tracy and her mom, Shelly for the BEST day--I had a blast.


Baby Portrait: Evelyn at One Year in Oregon

I can't believe how fast Evelyn grew! It's hard to believe it's been a whole year. What a fun little girl, and she's so expressive with her hands with her delicate little poses. What a sweetie!

Senior Portrait: Sean in Corvallis, Oregon

Sean… a young man with many interests and talents!  An Eagle Scout, a lettered athlete, and a member of the 2012 Mr. Spartan program at Corvallis High School (a group organized to raise money for the Mario Pastega House, the Good Samaritan Regional Cancer Center, and the Good Samaritan Suicide Prevention Center).  What a great day capturing him representing these various facets of his life.  Thanks, Sean!
