Connor is totally my kind of guy! He was so much fun to hang out with. While Conner doesn’t live in Central Oregon, Connor and his family travel to Sunriver for vacation often. As a lover of Oregon plants and agriculture, it was important to Connor to have photo taken in this beloved land. What better place than Shelvin Park for lots of landscapes, plant backdrops and so much more.
I know your social media feeds are going to look so fun with these branding/lifestyle headshots and portraits. I hope you had as much fun as I did during your session. You are an awesome guy and I really enjoyed getting to know you.
Marsha was so sweet and so much fun to work with. She asked for a lifestyle branding/headshot session to capture some fun and casual images that she could use for dating sites. So guys, please note that this beautiful lady is single and whoever she falls for will be lucky.
The goal was to capture fun images that showed off her personality while being casual. Oh, and we wanted to get a great headshot. Almost every client of mine starts the session by mentioning that they aren’t comfortable in front of the camera and Marsh said this too! I love the extra challenge, although in this case it was easy to capture beautiful portraits because she really is gorgeous.
We had fun chatting about her love for dogs and so much more. I’m so happy to have had this opportunity to capture this amazing woman.
Thank you for letting me capture a these photos of you. I hope you love these photos as much as I do. I know you are going to find a guy as an awesome as you so don’t settle!
Logan and I met in downtown Bend, Oregon for his outdoor lifestyle headshot session. We were focused on capturing headshots that he could use in a variety of ways throughout his marketing campaigns. I couldn’t help but capture some more model like lifestyle portraits of him just hanging out around downtown too, even if they were just for fun!
It was about to pour on us when we starting the session so I shot fast in attempt to out run, or rather – out shoot, the rain. We kept smiles on our faces knowing we might get rained out at any moment. As soon as we met the end of our 40 minutes together, those rain drops started coming down.
In other words, it was perfectly time. Even though it dark and moody out, his photos came out great!
Thank you for having a great attitude. You were fun to work with! I hope these photos help in this new adventure you are on here in Bend.
Crystal is making huge changes in her life like branching out and starting her own bookkeeping business. With a fresh start happening, she needed fresh photos. We had such a great time hanging out in the Old Mill District for her beautiful photos! We had to get some greenery in the photos too or it just wouldn’t represent Bend, Oregon. I love how she stuck to blue tones which not only represent her brand but also look great on her!
There are some beautiful headshots as well as more diverse images to allow her to use them for many different types of marketing. I love creating empty space on the side of an image to give a place for text.
I can’t wait to see what you do with these amazing photos of you. I hope you have huge success in this new business venture!
Amanda is new in town and just a started a new job with Monte Vista Homes! She loves her team and is excited to be in Redmond.
I always love to show a few extra headshots that didn’t get retouched. We captured so many great images in just 20 minutes in this Basic Headshot Session. The main photo at the top was her final choice. I think any of them would have been great, but she sure looks professional, trustworthy and approachable which is why it’s the best option for her!
Julie looks stunning! She would be the best boss to work for. I wish her the very best as she steps into her new role at her dad’s company.
I love all the great images we got in this Basic Headshot Session – only 20 minutes! So many great looks! Here are just a few of my favs plus the fully retouched image above.
Thanks for coming in to the studio, laughing with me and brighting my day!
I love Carissa’s new headshot! The one above is her fully retouched amazingly gorgeous new look.
She was so much fun to work with! Carissa came in with a beautiful smile on her face, ready to step in front of the camera. She said she had some nerves and always feels awkward having her photo taken, but I think she looks so relaxed and professional.
The green sweater she chose fit her perfectly and made her skin glow and eyes pop. I knew when she came into the studio that her photos were going to look great.
Below we have a few raw images (not retouched). I love sharing extra images from the session. We captured these and so many more in just 20 minutes. We may not have chosen these beaming smile portraits for her final image, but I couldn’t resist showing off her beauty.
So let’s talk retouching… a lot of people think retouching is all about air-brushing in that strange way that makes people look fake. For me, I like to change things that will make people look more like the do in real life to show off the beauty that we all see. For Carissa, that meant getting rid of wrinkles in her clothing and fixing the hair. I usually smooth skin tone too, but she actually didn’t need much since her skin is so creamy. I did take down the shine just a touch. The main thing was fixing her hair. The backlight I use gets rid of a lot of fly aways, but can also thin hair down. To counteract that effect, I thickened her hair, darkened it, and made it look like more like she stepped out of the salon.
Carissa, I love this new headshot! I hope you had as much fun as I did in the studio with you. Welcome to Bend!
Meet the AdvenChair.
What an amazing wheelchair for off-roading adventures! There is no reason to be held back anymore! No longer do people need to miss out on adventures in this beautiful area we live in. This chair is the solution. It’s easy to use and opens up new opportunities like never before.
I got see first hand how this chair works during a family photography session. We took it off roading for photos. We couldn’t have gone to these beautiful places without it!

Isn’t she gorgeous? Kiona came by for a Basic Headshot Session in my studio last week. Which means we captured all these lovely images in just 20 minutes!
I love being able to show clients images during the session. It super helped out for this one. After only a few minutes I knew which side was her good side and together we picked the position we both thought looked best. From there, it was easy to make a few tweaks to get the perfect headshot for Kiona! It helped that she was relaxed and had fun.
Kiona, thanks for being willing to laugh and be a little silly during your session. You were so much fun to work with. Keep smiling! It’s infectious 🙂
Above is Kiona’s final retouched headshot. Here are few outtakes and proofs from her session that we didn’t use, but I love them anyway:
Paige is this totally amazing artist in Bend, Oregon. She’s beautiful, a bit quite and completely talented! I can’t believe she’s only a senior in high school! I had so much fun with these beautiful senior portraits. I wanted to show Paige not only as an artist, but I also wanted to capture her beautiful soul in model like images. The light and landscape were perfect. I think I really captured who she is and I just love how these senior photos turned out!
