Alex | Senior portraits at Armitage Park

I’m excited to share Alex's senior portraits! October in Eugene started off to be a warm and sunny. We took advantage of that and got some great images.  Alex wanted a more natural setting with the river and trees. Armitage Park in Eugene Oregon was the perfect location for his senior portraits. I love the way his senior portraits turned out and I know they do too!

Fun Senior Portraits: Hunter and Jackson

I was asked to do Hunters senior portraits and I was thrilled. I have know Hunter since she was a baby. Hunter had been dating Jackson for 2 years and they wanted to do there Senior pictures together. They wanted to have outside pictures  with beautiful Fall colors. So we waited till the first weekend of October. The week before I was getting really nervous cause we were getting lots of rain. But as the saying in the Willamette Valley goes just wait a little bit and it will change. A few days before their pictures the weather was beautiful. That morning we woke up to blue skies and a high of 70. I couldn’t believe it.

We had a great time, went to several locations and captured some great images. Jacksons favorite part was the basketball pictures. Being a Senior in High School sometimes can be hard preparing for college and everything but also a  lot of fun. They go to Springfield High School and play sports year round. Jackson is planning on going to Chemeketa for the fire program and Hunter is planning on going to Western for the Dental program. They are both very bright, friendly, outgoing individuals. I had a great time spending the day with them. Thank you.
