The past few weeks have been such a blur with Thanksgiving, family gatherings, Christmas preparation, life and business. Not to mention, the crazy winter storm that took over our town 5 days ago- the snow is still here, as we haven’t been above freezing temperatures in over a week. For some of you, I know this is the norm this time of year, but we live in a valley where we rarely get snow, rain is our forte. ;) This isn’t me complaining, don’t get meClick for more »
Oh. My. Goodness!! Over the weekend I posted a link to the details of our 2015 Senior Rep Program on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Over the past six years, we have been fortunate enough to have worked with hundreds of seniors from all over the Northwest, which is absolutely mind blowing! Our amazing Senior Reps are who help us make itClick for more »

In just twelve short months, I have learned a lot. About life, about people, about business and about me. I’ve had a bit of an awakening and so many things have been exposed in perfect clarity. If you are a long time follower, you know that inspiration has always played a central role in my business. Much like Young & Free, Be Inspired is simply who I am. Yet, lately, I have been feeling uninspired by some of my choices and experiences.

I have been submerged in marketing & forecasting for 2014 and to say that I am excited about what the future holds is the understatement of the century.

To celebrate CYBER MONDAY, for one day only, we are offering $250 off your registration to one of our 2014 workshops! Space is limited to just 8 attendees per event. I have found that this is the magic number for Workshops. Having a smaller group allows me more hands-on time with each of the attendees, I love that! The shooting groups are also smaller, (2-3 photographers per group, maximum!) which results in more interaction with our lovely models and more imagesClick for more »

It’s amazing how a series of words can inspire you in ways you never imagined. These particular words resinate with my heart more than I could possibly ever explain. Lately, there has been a stirring in my soul to dream bigger, to follow my heart, to take the unknown path without resistance. Because I have always committed to living a life without regrets. I have to ignore my fears and allow my dreams to thread themselves to my soul, like little wings. SeekClick for more »

During a recent workshop, one of the attendees asked me why I hadn’t blogged many of my personal/concept shoots. My answer: Because I didn’t know where they fit with Senior Portraits. Sound silly? Yeah. It does to me, too. I mean, it’s MY WORK, shouldn’t it fit simply because I shot it? Of that, I’m still not certain… A few years ago, after making the decision to specialize in Senior Portraits for Girls, I worked very long andClick for more »
I have been eagerly waiting to feature Annie’s beautiful senior session on the blog! :) Annie is one of my Bend clients, though she opted to travel down to the valley and do her session on my turf- which was awesome! We hit up one of the gorgeous vineyards that the Willamette Valley has to offer and took full advantage of the breathtaking scenery and beautiful sunlight. I absolutely adore Annie, she is so sweet, funny and full of life! Not to mention, she wasClick for more »
I have so many sessions to post and I can’t wait to get all of my gorgeous clients featured on the blog! As I mentioned yesterday, don’t be surprised to see me post two blog posts in one day- I am quite behind on blogging and have so much I want to share. :) Today, I am thrilled to share Jessica’s beautiful senior session! In early fall, I met up with her and her mom in Brownsville. There are infinite reasons why I love doing sessions in Brownsville, as itClick for more »
Today marks Day One of New Beginnings. Fall is always VERY hectic for the True Household, between a busy shooting/editing/work schedule, back to school, our kiddos sports practices and games, photography workshops, school events and life in general- we basically fasten our seat belts and enjoy the ride the best we can. :) “When I get back from Palm Springs…” has been the start of countless sentences from my mouth. In many ways, Palm Springs was theClick for more »
