Kayla had some ideas for a towel shot, so we figured we'd make a whole boudoir shoot out of it. It's been awhile since I've done a shoot like this, but we figured it out. Kayla rocked it, as always, and we ended up with some great images. The window light was great, but we … Continue reading Boudoir with Kayla
I have a tendency to overbook myself when I come to Portland. Obviously, I want to spend as much time as possible with family, but there are other people I need to see when I'm here, too. My three favorite models are some of those people. I have a shoot with all three planned for … Continue reading Quick afternoon shoot with Ashlee
Back in 2011, I shot Malala's senior photos: This week I had the opportunity to get her in front of my camera again. Hopefully, we'll find time to do more shoots when I'm in Portland.
Steve and I had the opportunity to get some drone footage inside the Cascade County Courthouse this week. Flying inside is never quite as easy as flying outside, but the fact that this is a 115-year-old building on the National Register of Historic Places made it even more challenging.

A while back, I had the opportunity to photograph three beautiful women in a collaboration project with a hair stylist and a makeup artist. We didn't move as quickly as planned, and Kayla ended up with only a few minutes of camera time. Since then, we've tried to get together to do another shoot, but weather and schedules always seemed to get in the way. This weekend, we finally had a chance to shoot.
I've been in Portland now for almost exactly half my life. Long enough to occasionally be able to say, "I remember when..."
When I first moved out here, this sign looked better. My buddy's girlfriend lived right around the corner from here, so we spent quite a bit of time at Coach's Bar in this little strip mall, too.
This one is another collaboration with Krystal of August Hair Artistry. She brought in Dallas and her awesome airbrush makeup skills, and they enlisted the help of Becca to model for us. Becca was one week away from a competition, so she was completely ripped.
