San Francisco Getaway

Last month I took a quick trip to San Francisco to see one of my photography heroes, Pete Souza speak of his time as the Obama White House photographer. To say his work (and stories) were inspiring would be an understatement. I also had a few days to spend with friends, visit the newly expanded SF MOMA, enjoy several Mint Mojitos at Philz Coffee, and even catch a showing of Beach Blanket Babylon

family portraits with college kids

Think college kids are too old (or too tall!) for family portraits? Think again! This adorable family of four includes a UC Cal Bear and a UC Davis Aggie.

Miniature horses, stallions, mini donkeys, goats, chickens, turkeys, tortoise, pigs, emus, a baby wallaby (my current favorite) and more...these kids are living the dream and doing so much good for the community at their ranch in Palm Beach county.

I'm back from Palm Beach and have lots of images to share! These lovely twins are first up...we were so lucky to have a morning of sunshine after a long day of storms. And I was sure to enjoy every single minute before returning to Portland!

Ah, beautiful fall sessions have arrived! It's hard to believe these portraits were taken a few minutes after a massive downpour just a few steps from the studio.

This gorgeous girl will be a featured speaker at TedX Youth Portland this November. I attended with my teens last year and it was a fantastic day!
