Elementary School Portraits

I had the opportunity this year to help an elementary school family with school picture retakes of their two children. The parents were not happy with the results of the natural light photography of the traditional school photographer. So, I was able to step in and help them with some well-lit images of the two siblings (a boy and a girl).  The images show beautiful catchlights in the eyes, while still retaining a balanced, natural, and outdoor feel that the parents were seeking. School pictures aren’t just for high school seniors!  If you want beautiful portraits of your children to document their school year or their current age, I can help!  Don’t miss this opportunity to capture beautiful images of this unique period in your child’s life.

Kade | Sandy High School

Kade is a senior at Sandy High School in Sandy, Oregon. He is very musically inclined and enjoy the small things in life. And musically inclined is a bit of an understatement, as he plays many musically instruments includig the bass guitar, tuba, and trombone. When he’s not busy making music, Kade says he also enjoys just sitting around and relaxing. Naturally, I asked Kade what his favorite music is. He responded by saying his favorite music is rock and metal, especially alternative metal. His favorite song currently is Infra-Red by Three Days Grace.
