Kenzie | Simplicity Concept Shoot | Eugene Senior Portrait Photographer

If you are at all familiar with my blog, you’ve probably seen pictures from our Simplicity Concept Shoot we did late last fall.  Simplicity is a concept that I absolutely fell in love with and knew I had to make come to life!  The motto was Simple & Clean.  We did the entire shoot in a studio on a clean, white backdrop.  No fuss, no props, no bold colors.  All emphasis was kept on the posing and the connection with our gorgeous models.  It was such an amazingClick for more »

Kayla | Simplicity Concept Shoot | Eugene Senior Portrait Photographer

When I was putting together the concept for Simplicity, I knew I had to call upon one of my favorite girls to work with, Kayla.  This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to work with her and loved every single second of it- so I was quite eager to get her back in front of my camera again!  :)  I loved my first shoot with her, but can I just say that the second time around knocked my socks off! Simplicity is a concept that I fell in love with several months ago.Click for more »

I am a dreamer | Oregon Senior Portrait Photographer

This past weekend, like so many other photographers, I spent hours on end watching the ever amazing Sue Bryce kill it on CreativeLIVE.  As I listened to her share her savvy business knowledge and admirable beliefs, I sat there thinking to myself, “She’s talking to me right now… She is so talking to me!”  She reminded me of something I had forgotten about myself, only I hadn’t realized it until she said the words. You see, dear internet, IClick for more »

Breanna | Simplicity Concept Shoot | Eugene Senior Portrait Photographer

With Spring taunting us in the distance, I can tell you that I am eagerly awaiting her arrival!  Going back and looking at sessions we did this past fall has given me the itch to get out and create.  This has only been magnified since tuning in to Sue Bryce on CreativeLIVE today.  :)  She absolutely rocked it today and I am incredibly inspired by her approach, style and business methods- she is a girl after my own heart, for sure.  If you aren’t familiar with herClick for more »

Be Inspired: Online Workshop | Senior Portrait Photography

The past twelve months have been a whirlwind…  Last year at this time I was preparing for my very first workshop.  I was nervous and scared and absolutely thrilled- all bundled into one.  I was fearful of failure.  But I had a strong yearning within me to teach and pay it forward.  You see, I am so passionate about the photography industry and I crave sharing this passion with anyone who will pause long enough to hear it.  :)  Since last year we have beenClick for more »

Sierra | Bend Oregon Senior Photographer

We have been very busy behind the scenes here at HTP- lots of crazy amazing things happening!  :)  In between editing and answering messages and emails, I also gave my website and brand a huge overhaul this past few weeks.  I am a user of Showit, a fabulous website company that allows me the freedom to create a custom site that reflects me and my brand.  That’s right – me.  :)  Having the freedom and power to design something that is true and honest to who IClick for more »

Emma | Bend Senior Photographer

I have been absolutely dying to get all of the images on our blog from our concepts that took place in the fall.  I have no idea where all of the time went, but it has someone escaped me.  Between being sick, the holidays and traveling, blogging has fallen to the wayside, which honestly breaks my heart.  I have been promising on Facebook that this will be changing- and it will.  I am dedicated to blogging at least 3 times per week now- hopefully 5.  Please, dearClick for more »

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 »
