Entries in Portland Family Photographer (7)
...From one of the lovely sessions I had this fall. A good looking family, beautiful places and gorgeous light.
I came across this quote yesterday morning, and it stuck with me:
'Some people ask, “What if I haven’t found my true passion?”
It’s dangerous to think in terms of “passion” and “purpose” because they sound like such huge overwhelming ideas.
If you think love needs to look like “Romeo and Juliet”, you’ll overlook a great relationship that grows slowly.
If you think you haven’t found your passion yet, you’re probably expecting it to be overwhelming.
Instead, just notice what excites you and what scares you on a small moment-to-moment level.
If you find yourself glued to Photoshop, playing around for hours, dive in deeper. Maybe that’s your new calling.
If you keep thinking about putting on a conference or being a Hollywood screenwriter, and you find the idea terrifies but intrigues you, it’s probably a worthy endeavor for you.
You grow (and thrive!) by doing what excites you and what scares you everyday, not by trying to find your passion.'
~ Derek Sivers
"Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever or whatever abysses nature leads, or you will learn nothing."
~Thomas H. Huxley
Photographing babies and young kids it's what's close to my heart, but it is sure nice to have subjects in front of the camera that do what you tell them to and don't try to outrun you :)
It was a beautiful afternoon and our 'traditional style' shoot was a really, really fun shoot.
I know you guys loved your sneak peek on Facebook. Here are a few more for your enjoyment ;) You are definitely a great looking family. It was really hard to narrow down the shots I was going to post.
So, see you next year, same time, same spot ;) By the way, that comment was a great compliment Mary :)
Here are a few shots of some of the products that I'll be offering. The quality is exquisite.
The Flush mounted photo album comes in three different sizes - 6x6, 9x9 and 12x12. Printed on FUJI professional photo paper, matt coated and embossed, with 2 mm thick pages and a water proof image cover they are made to last.
These images are provided by the supplier and are not my product shots. They are meant to help you visualize the quality of the products.
The keepsake boxes are custom handmade, come printed with your favorite image from the session on the outside and 18-20 matted prints which can be displayed in your home and switched out as you like.
