This Portland trip has been busier than most, but Kayla and I managed to carve out a couple hours for a quick shoot. It was a gorgeous day in Portland, so the window light was perfect. There's something to be said for working with the same models for years. We are able to spend less … Continue reading Kayla – September 2019
We had talked about doing a shoot almost two years ago, but hadn't actually had the opportunity until recently. Lisa is an awesome person with no modeling experience, but she still made my job easy. We wandered around the Ulm area, then headed up to the First Peoples' Buffalo Jump. It was great to finally … Continue reading Quick Shoot with Lisa
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
I've been trying to come up with a metal-themed print for the wall of my buddy's office building. I shot trains, random abstract metal, and anything else I could think of, but none of them really impressed me. Then I realized it needed to be a portrait. Luckily, I have friends with kids who thought … Continue reading Metal Portraits with Mya and Kaylee

I'm not what you'd call a *family* photographer. But every now and then, friends ask me to take their family portraits. And who can say no to friends? I admit I had a great time shooting this group. It was cold, and the light was flat, but we perservered.
Ashlee and Kayla wanted to do a crazy makeup shoot, and I needed to test out the new Sony A7ii, so we got together to experiment. I turned my family room into a studio and we started shooting.
A quick morning photoshoot with Meagan. More images after the jump.
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.
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.
