::Monique:: Eugene Portrait Photographer

Winter is generally a slower time for me when it comes to photography, though with the holiday chaos and cold weather, it’s always a little refreshing to take a little break.  However, when January approaches, I always get anxious to do a shoot!  So, you can imagine my excitement when I received a message from Monique, a local model, about doing a lifestyle session.  :) Despite the arctic-like conditions, we decided to meet-up the morning of New Year’s Eve.Click for more »

Emma | Eugene Oregon Senior Portrait Photographer

I recently met up with Emma for a mini shoot, which was so unbelievably cold!  We were working against daylight, so we had to act fast, as we only had about 45 minutes to get it done!  :)  It pushed me to try new angles and crops, knowing I had to make the most of the little time I had available.  I feel that when we challenge ourselves, it allows us to grow and learn- it is so important to continually do this.  I absolutely love the way the images turned out!  OfClick for more »
