Senior Pictures in Portland Get Gritty and Floral

Recently I had the honor of photographing some senior pictures for a good friends daughter back in Portland. All the cities I have ever lived in I know very well. I’m an explorer and always search out new and interesting areas. But back when I lived in Portland I wasn’t photographing portraits, so I didn’t really have any go-to locations. I know what type of backdrops I like to use for shoots, so I had a general idea of where I wanted go but when I get the opportunity to explore and create in a new environment, I get excited and a anxious all at the same time. Remember, in an outdoor setting, it’s a race against the clock and the sun. Choosing the right location for the right time is something that you get better at with time and experience, but sometimes, all those choices can still make me a little anxious. You just never know if your going to eat up a bunch of time running around trying scout out what your looking for. I basically had the entire downtown city of Portland to work with, and three hours to do it. Yeah, it was a like a scavenger hunt. I had to find the locations, create the portraits, and then run off to find the next one I was looking for. Luckily with this shoot though, my choices just synced up with everything else and it turned out even better than I was hoping for. Summer has great style, the weather was fantastic that day for pictures, and the places I chose to shoot at just really worked out. Whewww- I couldn’t be happier!

    Nice photos. Extensive too. I don’t remember getting so many pictures for senior year. I think maybe got one pose and that was it.

    Beautiful, you always make normal people look like a fashion model. Good job! =)

    Love #5. While that may not be the typical senior picture since the subject becomes just a small part of the shot, it’s so different from the “norm” that it stands out as something other than a senior pic. Good work!

    You do really extensive layouts. Really nice.

    You guys are good!!

    These pictures are just too beautiful for my eyes only:) Surely you must know what I like you to shoot when ever you get the opportunity to explore and create in a new environment. If you get excited and a little nervous at the time then maybe I can help you out:)

    Awesome! That sure is a far cry from the one pose that everyone did back when I was in school. I would have loved a set like this.

    These are great pics but a couple really stand out to me, the one where she looks serious with the city as a backdrop and the one where she smiles with a faded image of the city behind her.

  37. September 21, 2012 at 5:52 am

    Nice pics! I love the one with the roses! Romantic…
