I'll never forget Riley's session. Not for as long as I live. You know why? Because a raw chicken LITERALLY fell from the sky. Literally.
I hold my breath when a redhead walks into the studio. Like...I don't get excited about TOO many things but when I know I'm going to get to photograph a redhead....whoa. Give me space for my happy dance!
Smile, laugh, share all your joy, Hailey. You're going places in this world. Enjoy it!

Elizabeth, thank you for being so fun to photograph. I started that day with low energy and, if I'm being honest, I was a little grumpy about all the things I had on my plate. When I started photographing you, all of the stress just melted away and I couldn't stop giggling. You are so sweet!
She couldn't be more different. More unique.
I mean, who can rock a Harry Potter wand for their Seniors? This girl. Obviously.

Featured Upcoming Seniors:
My name is Meghan Wood and I'm in the graduating class of 2017. Some of my interests include volleyball, hiking, or really anything outgoing. I'm very excited for what my senior year has in store for me. I am very excited to begin my senior year and make it one to remember. After high school I plan to go to college and find something that I love and then hopefully make a career out of it!
I have lived in Central Oregon the majority of my life. I've lived on a small 10 acre farm in Powell Butte for about 11 years now, and I've been surrounded by lots of farm animals since day one! I've always had a love for horses and riding. Another one of my big passions is singing and music. I play piano and sing for Shiloh Ranch Cowboy Church here in Powell Butte, and it's something I look forward to doing every day! After high school I plan on going to Western Oregon University in Monmouth, Oregon and major in elementary education, 3rd or 4th grade. Lots of people ask me if I'm up for the challenge of dealing with little ones at that age, but I figure that's the age kids start learning the core standards of academics that will continue all through middle school and high school. While these years can be hard for most kids, I want to be a fun, loving teacher that can connect with them and hopefully be a role model to them. In my senior year, I look forward to job shadowing and interning at any schools I can in order to prepare myself for my dream job. I also look forward to the memories and friendships I'm going to make in the last year of high school!
Happy Style Tuesday! One of the things we love about photographing our seniors is seeing them rock their own personal styles...
From light, flowing dresses to ripped skinny jeans, the clothes that you choose for your photo shoot will add to the overall look and feel of your portraits! If you are in need of some inspiration for your next photo shoot, visit our Pinterest board!

My senior year is going to be an emotional roller coaster! It's a time to reflect on the past 4 years and how it has all helped me get to where I am today. My senior year is about finding myself and figuring out the rest of my life. I can't wait to see where my senior year takes me.
My name is Obed Eriza and I go to Madras High School. I am 17 years old (a junior) and very active in many things. I play soccer year round and tennis for high school. I also have good grades in school. I'd like to say I have a pretty okay taste in clothes, which I got from my older sister.
This next year is going to be one of the most emotional and crazy years of my life. It's a year of reflection on what goals, fears and plans I have for the future. Senior year is going to be all about getting prepared for college. I plan to be a pediatric physical therapist but I'm still young so nothing's set in stone.
Coral was super sweet and we had so much fun on her session. She brought her best friend and her mom and had all of the locations for her session kicked out in advance. I love it when my girls choose their own locations because it makes the session so much more personal to them. Her session was so ethereal and she reminds me of a fairy princess. The lighting was perfect, the weather was perfect, her hair was perfect, her outfits were perfect, her smile was perfect. My goodness... She. Is. Perfect.

"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides."-Audrey Hepburn
Taynara is a trooper. It was pouring down rain on the day of her session and she just rolled with it. You can't even tell! Great job, Taynara! You're beautiful.
Martha was a little nervous when she first came to her session. However, she had no reason to be! She's so beautiful and she did great! My assistant couldn't make it so it was just her and me and we had tons of fun.
Harleigh. She was so natural in front of the camera and had a specific vision for this session (Pinterest board included), which I loved! Her outfits were adorable and it was just an all-around great shoot!
Cheyenne is in my home group at church and I've known her for a couple of years. She's quiet but intense when she gets passionate about something. She shaved half her head and looks like a total rock-star yet she has this softness about her too. We had so much fun during our session!
Love this lady!
Jesslyn was one of my junior models last year. She has such a kind heart. The natural blonde color of her hair is a color I could only ever dream of having and her legs are longer than my entire body! She's a very talented competitive Irish Dancer. Her boyfriend and grandmother (most hip grandma you've ever met) came along for the session and it was a blast! So cute! Jesslyn is such a gem and SUCH a pleasure to photograph.
