Meet Arden, a beautiful HS Senior from Scappoose, OR. I photographed her brother, Andrew, a few years ago and now it was her turn for the spotlight. She was super nervous in the beginning but we got her out of her shell in the end.
The first thing I noticed about Arden was her complete mustache outfit: Shirt, Belt, shoes, necklace, etc….. Loved it! After Kat, my lovely hair and makeup artist, had completed her look we were off to our first destination.
We started out at the Portland Rose Test Garden up by the Zoo. She looked stunning. To help ease her into the shoot we did some fun silly pictures with her and her sister. Such an amazing bond they had. The other visitors couldn’t help but watch the action.
Near the end we moved to a very quiet one way road (completely safe mind you) for a few shots. At one point we moved to the side as we heard a motorcycle coming. Funniest thing ever!!! The motorcyclist finally becomes visible fully decked out in black riding gear, tinted black helmet, driving an old Vespa Moped. Arden gave her best princess wave as he drove by. We got the shot(s) and moved onto the next location.
Downtown Portland was a place she frequently visited so it seemed only fitting to use that as our second shooting location. The waterfront was the perfect setting for our final location.
I know it was difficult for her to be the main focus but she did fantastic. I know it’s hard to view ourselves and not be critical but it makes me so excited when a model loves their portraits.
Such a stunning young lady! Show your support and comment below.

In my profession, having a model that is willing to try anything to get that perfect shot is always a nice treat to have. If that model also happens to be stunningly beautiful, that helps too! Luckily my latest target, Megan Granum, is both! On a cloudy and occasionally rainy day in downtown Portland, we had an amazing time moving, posing and generally being silly. Megan was willing to try just about anything with an unbelievable enthusiasm.
Her quirky attitude made for some interesting and funny poses. She brought with her a pretty colorful collection of outfits and we managed to get shots in each of them. The wind was not working in our favor while changing but was certainly appreciated when posing (who needs a wind machine when you have the real thing right?).
Megan is a smart young woman who is going to achieve great things in life. She is passionate and quiet the go get’er. I mean come on….this girl has already achieved getting her pilots licenses before she’s even graduated high school! Not to mention holding down a PT job at a law firm. AMAZING!
Over the weekend I took my youngest daughter Taylor on a Mother Daughter date. I wasn’t 100% sure what to do after but figured we could talk it over at dinner.
As we drove to Red Robin we passed a sign for the Hillsboro High School Play, Beauty & The Beast. PERFECT! I had yet to see a play even though my oldest daughter, Breanna, attends Hilhi.
We arrived early to get good seats. It was amazing how many people we ran into: Taylor’s teacher from last year, clients I had photographed, softball teammates, and friends we hadn’t seen in awhile.
I brought my camera unsure if pictures would be allowed. The conductor instructed the audience to turn off cellphones and no flash photography! Got it! No flash!
The kids did a fantastic job and the singing was amazing! I can’t wait to attend the next Hilhi Play.
I had the privilege of photographing this lovely young woman named Ashley. She’s an outgoing bubbly girl who shines super bright. Many clients you have to work for those smiles but not Ashley. I bet she’d smile ear to ear all day long if she could. Models like this make my job so easy.
Amanda Seyfried better watch out because she has a twin!
