PDX Photographers Award | Lemonade & Lenses Honorable Mention

Lots of new awards to add to the collection, which I’m always very excited and honored to be able to do.

First off I received another honorable mention for a cover contest over at Lemonade & Lenses.

Lemonade & Lenses is a popular photography magazine and gets thousands of entries for their cover contests so to be picked as an honorable mention is quite the accomplishment.

It was their business issue so I submitted this photo from Candice’s beautiful session (which hasn’t been blogged yet, but once it is I’ll provide a link here).

I also had two of my images chosen for the PDX photographers award for their 4th collection of 2014. PDX photographers is a “Collections of images from the top portrait photographers serving Portland, OR showcased quarterly”

The winning images were of the beautiful Amber & the stunning Olivia.

Taylor | North Clackamas Christian School Senior Photography Clackamas OR

Taylor is a 2015 Senior at North Clackamas Christian School in Oregon City,OR

She is such a sweet girl & so beautiful. We had fun changing up her looks, she wanted to keep her look casual and natural. Her friends came a long for moral support and they were so much fun and a big help with everything.

Taylor’s Mom saw the log and suggested we get some photos with it. Everyone remembers getting their cheesy senior photos with the fake log right? Well we did that but with a modern twist, no cheesiness here. I actually love how they turned out.

Taylor plays guitar so we included her guitar in her photo shoot, the sun was going down when she pulled out her guitar and It was just gorgeous! I really enjoyed getting to know Taylor & entourage (as I called them) during her session.  One of my favorite parts of the session was when Taylor was telling me her Mom found me for her photos, so she really didn’t know much about me or my photography. She admitted she was really worried I’d be really really old and not cool.

Kyle | Senior Portrait Photography Gresham, OR

Kyle is a senior spokesmodel for Reynolds High School, Class of 2015. This Handsome guy is pretty great at water polo I’ve been told and just went to the Junior Olympics.

I had an awesome time at his session with him and his sister Kelsy. Kelsy was a senior spokesmodel for me 2 years prior, and still is the record holder for the most referrals.

Kyle’s Photo won senior guy of the week over at Senior Style Guide, you can check it out HERE
