Selfies. Ugh! Even the name coined for them is irritating. Ok, maybe I’m just being grumpy. But, really, if I see one more picture of a girl in a bathroom doing the duck face I’m going to punch someone in the neck! That being said, a popular way for a lot of current photographers to… Read more »

Ahh, the lovely Sheila. She was so much fun to work with and a real pro in front of the camera. Still working on some special projects from this shoot but here are a few of the others.
The talented (and goofy) boys of the Mountain View High School varsity basketball team. One of the best 5A teams in Oregon this year! Ranked #2 headed into the playoffs. Each year I try to do something special with the boys and this year, well, we get to see how much personality these guys have…. Read more »
